Three things can help reduce blood pressure.
1) being no more than your ideal weight
2) taking vigorous exercise regularly
3) lowering salt intake and perhaps using 'Lo-salt'.
Unfortunately even using all three will seldom normalise it, once the disease is established.
There are also dozens of different drug groups each containing many different individual drugs, now available to treat BP. No one is upset by all of them.
