Brief Answer:
salt restriction, physical activity, normal body weight

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

the most effective natural method to help your blood pressure regulation is by adopting a healthy lifestyle. I'll list some 'interventions' for you.
- reduce salt consumption: high salt consumption may lead to elevated levels of blood pressure. Watch for the hidden salt in various snacks, bread, pies, cheese, etc
- physical activity: what you do is more than enough.
- maintain a healthy body weight and a healthy diet: obesity increases the blood pressure levels. Loosing weight helps.

Unfortunately there are no other well documented natural methods to reduce your blood pressure significantly. Please note though that your ultimate goal is to reduce your risk for cardiovascular complications. Blood pressure is not the only risk factor for cardiovascular complications. Smoking for example is another factor, so if you do smoke, then you should consider quitting. Increased lipid levels is another factor. You can find out if your lipids are too high with a simple blood test.

I hope you find my comments helpful!
You can contact me again, if you'd like any clarification or further information.

Kind Regards!

I ve been having RUQ for 8mos. My GI doc says I m fine (normal US, normal blood tests, Hida scan BGEF 88%, endoscopy showed no ulcers , biopsies normal). I ve pretty much given up and just live with the pain (the symptoms read like a poorly functioning gallbladder ), but last night I had a glass of red wine (cut with water) and the pain was double or triple what it usually is. What would cause that?
