Yes, it does. My son, a neurosurgeon, highly recommended it to me when I was diagnosed with hypertension and high cholesterol. After following it for a few months, my numbers are now in the normal range.

Reading nutritional labels, tracking food, and exercising was a learning experience. And, I’m still learning. Be open to a new healthy lifestyle. It’s a journey for the rest of your life. You won’t regret the positive results from your hard work.

Keep Sparking!

It really helps you to watch the sodium and cholesterol. By watching my sodium and changing my eating habits I was able to cut my blood pressure medicine in half twice. So I am only on a small dose of it now. I didn't have high cholesterol, but was on the higher end of normal. The Dash diet and changes to what I ate and more exercise helped with that issue too. All my best to you always.

If you look through the old threads in here you can find links to free info on the Dash Diet. I just used them and a free hand out from my doctor's office on it. I never bothered buying any books on it, or getting any books from the library or such on it.

My daughter and I are thinking about starting the DASH diet. We both have high blood pressure, high cholesterol and she has Diabetes. Just want opinions on the diet and does it work.
