There are a number of things you can do to reduce your blood pressure either instead of medication or along with medication. Of course you should follow your doctor's instructions with regard to any medical treatment. There are some things that do help lower blood pressure: 1. Lose weight--get down to your appropriate body mass index (see http://www.consumer.gov/weightloss/bmi.htm) 2. Exercise. Moderate exercise--such as brisk walking--can help manage weight and blood pressure. 3. Eat the DASH diet. This is a diet that has been shown to reduce blood pressure. See http://www.nhlbi.nih.gov/health/public/heart/hbp/dash/ (For more information on exercise and diet see http://www.webmd.com/content/article/17/1676_51611?src=Inktomi&condition=Fitness) 4. Relaxation exercises: Some people can lower blood pressure through relaxation (see http://www.utsouthwestern.edu/utsw/cda/dept16498/files/143155.html).
