Hi Balakrishnan,

The target BP for adults is

To bring to that level you have the following options.
1. Regualr Exercise - Can reduced BP by 5 - 8 points
2. Low Salt in diet
3. Avoid Smoking/Alcohol
4. Meditation
5. Reduce Weight

If still BP is elevated medications will be required.
There is no single cure

Hope this answers your query

Thanks and Regards

Dr Kiran

hypertension cannot be treated but only controlled..if the cause is unknown u ll have to take medications lifelong..if the high BP is because of the renal or adrenal cause then it can be treated completely..do u have any family history of high BP?. do not worry..just make it a habit of taking medications regularly..if there is known cause then your prob will be over.. consult your doc..

along with medications you have to follow a good lifestyle
avoid smoking, stress,alcohol
reduce your salt intake
do regular exercise ,pranayam,yoga
avoid fatty substances.concentrate more on fruits and green leafy veg
Insulin resistance, which is a component of syndrome X can also contribute to hypertension.so try to avoid central obesity by strict diet modification and regular exercise
