Hi,thanks for query.One can not rely on single reading.You need to have at least 3-4 elevated reading to decide whether you need treatment or not.The normal range for any individual in the absecne of any other illness is 140/90.Please a keep a record and if most of the readings are above normal you may need medicines.Salt restricted diet,exercise will help you to avoid medicines.Garlic does not have any direct effect.
Wishing you good health.
