Brief Answer:
Not likely

Detailed Answer:
Hi friend
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Life style changes are basic.
Diet and exercise are essential, even while taking drugs
Drugs are in addition to it - NOT instead of it.

They have limitations and cannot control high values
Pressure and cholesterol are silent killers – and one very often has no symptom most of the times.
It is wiser to take the drugs

Good luck
God bless you
