Controlling Your Blood Pressure

Cut your risk of heart attack and stroke in half!

Let this dynamic new online course show you how to halt hypertension, boost cardiovascular fitness, and enjoy better and enduring good health.

Controlling Your Blood Pressure is a powerful presentation that reveals how — no matter what your age — you can gain and maintain the protective benefits of lower blood pressure.

High blood pressure can jeopardize your health and rob you of your independence. Hypertension doubles your risk of heart attack and stroke and increases your risk of vision loss, kidney failure, and dementia.

Discover the steps and secrets to lowering your blood pressure now!

New from Harvard Health Publishing, this course gives you the tools to build cardiovascular wellness by lowering your blood pressure and adopting strategies to keep it low. The course is impactful, engaging, and effective.

You’ll find even small changes can pay big and lasting dividends. Did you know there is a remarkably easy diet plan that can lower systolic blood pressure 11 points in just 8 weeks? Or that just moderate exercise can end the need for blood pressure medication? Or that one simple change can halt dangerous “part-time” hypertension for good?

In Controlling Your Blood Pressure, you’ll learn how to bring blood pressure into a normal range by adopting basic lifestyle changes — from eating smart to easing stress. You’ll get tips for weight loss, for choosing a blood pressure monitor, and for finding the best and safest medications.
