He should some sort of physical work , walking is the best. Next cut down your weight. Avoid fatty or too much cooked meat, eggs,etc. Decrease salt intake, and more of veg diet,/fiber diet . No alcohol or cigs. Avoid stress. Go early to bed. Garlic helps in lowering of BP but in minimal range.

I have been trying to lower my blood pressure for about 2 months with no success, even with the medication prescribed by my doctor, such a amlodipine, doxazosin, and losartan. My levels are now normally around 160 over 80. Maybe this medication is not strong enough to lower my levels. What can I do?
