Thanks for writing to us.

It is difficult to find out the exact cause of idiopathic hypertension. Stress and anxiety are only one of the many factors responsible for raised blood pressure. You can control your anxiety and stress by learning controlled breathing, doing Yoga and mild aerobics. Do keep on monitoring your blood pressure regularly to see how much it is helping.

I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.

Well getting rid of the stress in your life is the obvious answer, but how many of us can do that? Easy to say, not so easy to do. Exercise is one of the best. You don't need any fancy equipment or a gym membership. Just put on your sneakers and go for a walk. Also, get yourself a little fish tank. Sounds crazy I know, but watching fish is relaxing and has been proven to lower blood pressure. Also sounds crazy again, but get yourself a simple craft, like a paint by number (If your not artistic), or a model car or something. Art therapy is very relaxing. Good luck.
