A woman struggling with high blood pressure and suddenly sticky, peri-menopausal weight, wants to know what she should listen to in order to get the hypertension down and lose the weight.

Dear Belleruth,

I used your Weight Loss CD back in 2003 and lost 32 lbs. doing the South Beach diet plan. Unfortunately, in the past year or so I have gained all and more of that weight back, while I struggle with the symptoms of peri-menopause (hot flashes) and am presently 40 lbs. overweight. As a result, my MD advised today that at 145/97, my BP is too high and requires medication. He has given me 5 weeks to effect a change before the meds will begin.

Which of your CDs would be best to bring my BP down? Also, I have tried the Weight Loss CD recently and it doesn''t seem to be enough at this point. Are there any dangers in tapes with subliminal messaging like the one you offer in your catalog?

Thanks so much and I am a huge fan. Many people have tried your CDs on my advice and love them!
