. cut back on your salt intake. alot of food has salt in it and you dont realize it. so, even if you dont use alot of salt from a salt shaker, there are alot of foods that are loaded with sodium. and losing weight will help too.
i have high blood pressue, and just recently lost 30 pounds and my doctor lowered the strength of the pill . i still need to lose a good amount of weight more, so i'm hoping someday i wont need the blood pressure pills anymore.
