High spikes in blood pressure. What are measures to control blood pressure?

I recently went through some very high spikes in my blood pressure over a period of 2 weeks. I have it under control now, my question is does this weaken blood vessels and if so how can I improve them naturally? I am already exercising eating oats for breakfast every day cut out my caffeine. Also I juice green veg and fruit juices daily. I am taking 10mg of Norvasc a day

Hi,
Welcome to HCM,
Blood pressure might be due to deposition of cholesterol in the arteries giving more resistant for blood to pass giving rise to high BP.
There are other causes of having high BP.
Go for S. cholesterol, lipid profile.
Reduce weight if you are over weight.
Take less salt in your diet.
Go for regular exercise.
Avoid stress and sedentary life.
Ok and bye.
