stressful and sedentary life is responsible for hypertension
so if u want to get rid of hypertension without medication you have to lead stress free life with daily atleast half an hour walking.
food which wil help you normalise high pressure is atleast 3 to 4 garlic in a day and include onion in your diet
Meat and eggs cause blood pressure to rise more than any other food,salt in diet should be resticted.
take fruits at five-hourly intervals, thrice a day.strawberry is best in lowering BP,orange,apple,mango,guavava,pear,pineapple,grapes.
Include raw salads in your diet as a snacks at evening time as
cucumber, carrot, tomato, onion, radish, cabbage and spinach are best.monitor your BP every week
