High blood pressure affects 1 out of 4 people over the age of 50, and is a leading cause of stroke. Lifestyle changes can lower blood pressure and blood sugar levels, along with doctor prescribed medications, diet and physical activity.

According to Dr. Herb Semler, high blood pressure is a major cause for heart attacks and strokes. Blood pressure should be monitored daily to be sure the medical program is effective in achieving optimal blood pressure readings.
