High BP, tell me a low sodium diet

i have high blood pressure on both sides of my family and actually have a grand-dad who died at 45 because of complications with his heart (i m assuming it had to do with his high blood pressure.. correct me if i m wrong!) anyways, i love foods that have flavor.. (grew up in a latin culture) and i admit i use waaaay to much salt. these last few months have made me consider what i m doing to my body as i ve had some strange symptoms that all point toward excessive high blood pressure. what diet can i put myself on that would be good for this? obviously low sodium, but what else would be good to cut out or add? thanks

sodium isnt necessarily bad for you as long as you dont over due it, unfortunately food from the latin culture does contain alot of sodium (BUT IT IS SOOO GOOD!) drinking lots and lots of water can help, also using different spices, some of the "Mrs Dash" seasoning (that you can buy at the grocery store) taste super salty, but contain no sodium or very little. high blood pressure is actually very scary, most of the time people dont know they have it until it is too late here is a good site that gives you tips on how to lower your blood pressure naturally without medication remember to drinks lots of water, it will help
