Dear Rahul
I believe you are suffering from malignant hypertension having moderately high reading. Well dear in majority of such cases the cause of hypertension is not known, so to eradicate the cause and offer a complete cure becomes a distant dream. Symptomatic relief is offered with all antihypertensive medicines. Their effect lasts for 24 hours and to maintain that level you are required to have next dose. All pathies have drugs but their efficacy to offer total cure is not established yet. The living style, diet thoughts stress diseases all contribute to raise blood pressure. As your diastolic is also showing variation even after medication you will need long term medicine may be whole life. In ayurveda there is a procedure called shirodhara in which medicated oil is dropped on fore head, oil massage and arjun based medicines lower the hypertension but cure can not be guaranteed.
