Trying to Learn

Hello,
My husb as just diagnosed with high blood pressure & enlarged heart. We need to make lifestyle changes etc. I've read about DASH and I'm trying to learn as much as possible. Any comments, advise or observations would be appreciated. Thanks.

From what I read about DASH during my research, it is truly the gold standard of HBP lowering diet. Too much salt can wreak havoc on the body. I don't follow DASH, but I have cut down my salt intake a great deal. I believe it has helped me, along with exercise and low carb, no sugar lifestyle to bring my BP into an acceptable range.
