1.Stop eating excess salt...infact try and restrict your salt intake as muc as possible. Also, therefore, try and avoid foods that contain high amounts of salt like pickles, chips/wafers, bakery products, salted peanuts etc.
2.Stop eating fatty foods, especially those rich in saturated fats. Try and use minimal amounts of oil for cooking. As far as possible, use mono/polyunsaturated oils especially safflower/sunflower oil or groundnut/olive oil.
3.Eat a diet rich in cereals, protein and veggies and fruits.
4.Start exercising regularly. Just dieting alone is not enough. Regularity in exercise is important.
5.For every 1 Kg weight that you lose by dieting and exercising, your Blood Pressure will decrease by around 1 mm of Hg.
6.Introduce lifestyle modifications, like avoiding stress and try meditation or yoga for relaxing and for relieving stress...it will definitely help in lowering ur BP.

30 minutes after a run yesterday, that i did not feel was extremely stressful. my heart felt out of rhythm and i was coughing. i felt like the cough was to get it back in rhythm, is it? i am a 50 year old female, have high blood pressure and am about 40 # overweight. i have had a EKG and stress test w/ultra sound and everything is normal.
In a recent medical exam, my BP was 142/92 and my pulse rate was 63. My SpO2 was measured twice (three minutes apart) and went from 96% to 93%. I had no medical history to report to the doctor. I was basically starting fresh with my healthcare. She said my vitals were normal and stable. She said my BP was likely due to my back pain (that led to the visit in the first place). But if my pressure was high, why was my rate low?? And, what is the significance of the drop in SpO2? Thanks.
