My father passed away on December 5, 1969, from a massive heart attack. Hypertension was one of the major factors contributing to the disease that claimed his life and took him away from us forever. How I wish I could have had more time with him. How I wish he could have met my wife, Dawn, and our children, Ross and jenny, his grandchildren.
I love him. I miss him. And I hope this book (The Blood Pressure CURE; 8 weeks to lower blood pressure without prescription drugs)that I dedicate to his memory will help others live and beat cardiovascular disease so they can enjoy the years taken away from him by a disease we're learning more and more about every day.
Robert E. Kowalski
Robert's perspective is interesting in that he not only writes as an authority in his field but also as a person who continues to battle cardiovascular disease himself on a daily basis. A testament to his approach in the fact that he has defied statistics. Most medical professionals would have quoted him a ten-year survival at the age of thirty-five, having undergone three-vessel bypass surgery in 1978. We are thankful that Robert continues to beat the odds as he relentlessly questions medical dogmas, educates, and pioneers new approaches to disease management.
Robert Kowalski encourages medically trained professionals to think outside of the box. We tend to be poorly educated in the non-pharmacological management of disease. As a group , we are often arrogant, dispelling theories and approaches that we are not comfortable with and criticizing them in the name of good medical science.
As much money is spent in the world on nonpharmacological preparations as is spent on traditional pharmaceuticals. In addition, this market continues to grow because it is tremendously appealing to patients who are able to manage diseases naturally without hard-core pharmaceuticals. Water is one of the natural cures. It is therefore our duty as health-care professionals to be educated in non-traditional neutraceuticals so that we may both understand and better treat and help our patients-citizens. Robert encourages us to do this by presenting clear and concise data.
