First of all you need to see you medical doctor. In addition you need to adjust your diet. A high fiber, high anti-oxidant diet is very important to reduce oxidative action of free radicals and remove excess cholesterol and toxins from your system. Cholesterol being oxidized in the arteries, result in their becoming narrow hence increasing blood pressure. Your diet should therefore be consisting of mainly vegetables (60% of vegetables of which 50% is eaten raw) and fruits (20% fresh raw fruits). Also include nuts and seeds as part of your 10% protein. While 10% of your diet should be of starchy carbohydrates, it should be noted that if most of this is of naturally grown foods such as yams, potatoes, green bananas etc., it would be more beneficial. While there are those discouraging from the use of salt (sodium chloride) it should be noted that 1). It is impossible to avoid sodium and 2). Sodium is very important in the diet of human for the regulation of water balance among other fundamental functions. Sodium chloride should be consumed in moderation. The consumption of water is also very important. You should be consuming between 8 and 10 glasses of water each day. Allium foods such as garlic, chive, scallion and leek are very important in your diet since they tend to reduce the viscosity of the blood.
