Heart Disease & Hypertension: Vitamin Therapy for a Healthy Heart by Bryant Lusk is an educational self-help book with the aim of preventing, curbing, managing, and reducing high blood pressure and cardiovascular trouble. Over the course of twenty-seven chapters, Lusk introduces the reader to the heart, what it does, its health, and what happens when we do and do not take care of this vital organ. This foundational information is detailed and comprehensive, making the subsequent chapters on vitamin therapy easy to digest. Lusk provides fact-based findings on the benefits of supplements such as catechins, zinc, omega-3 fatty acids, iodine, and many other forms of vitamin therapy. The book also contains tables, figures, and a vast amount of resources.
My mother died from a heart attack at a fairly young age and as far as any of us knew, she did not have any pre-existing conditions. Or at least none she told us about. Heart Disease & Hypertension is the book I wish I'd had eight years ago, as I have no doubt that the steps that are so thoroughly pointed out by Bryant Lusk could have saved a life. But it is not too late for me, and it is not too late for any reader even if they are advanced in the deterioration of heart health. Most of the advice is easy to implement and the inclusion of an actual schedule takes this a step further. I also appreciate that spiritual health is mentioned in an inclusive way and the clickbait and articles that say vitamins are useless are tackled head-on. I don't know a single reader who would not benefit from Lusk's expertise and I am grateful to have found this book. Better late than never, right? Very highly recommended.
