High spikes in blood pressure. What are measures to control blood pressure?

I recently went through some very high spikes in my blood pressure over a period of 2 weeks. I have it under control now, my question is does this weaken blood vessels and if so how can I improve them naturally? I am already exercising eating oats for breakfast every day cut out my caffeine. Also I juice green veg and fruit juices daily. I am taking 10mg of Norvasc a day
