High blood pressure can be primary which is 85-95% of cases which means there is no particular cause behind it or the cause is unknown or it can be secondary which means there are other factors causing it and the best way to deal with it is to know which one it is and only your doctor can determine that and treat you accordingly. But there are other non medicinal ways you can fllow that may help but they will never substitute medication if needed. Those things you need to follow are:
1. Light daily excercises at least 30 minutes a day.
2. Avoid salt in your food and drinks and those drinks that contain salt are all kind of soft drinks like Coke or Pepsi.
3. Avoid stressful conditions as much as you can
4. Take green tea as it has some diuretic effect whcih can help in reducing blood pressure to some extent.
5. Eat healthy as much as you can that rich in fruits and vegetables and low fat and avoid all junk food.
Again you have to check with your doctor to know how high it is and what kind of blood pressure and if you need medication or not.
Best of luck

Dr. Oz, I know you're show is geared mostly towards women but I really am in dyer need of help. I'm a 22 year old male and I'm currently taking two 20mg instant release Adderalls a day. My blood pressure is normal on a daily basis, but high blood pressure and heart disease does run in my family. My concern is in regards to Erectile Disfunction. It is a real self confidence killer! My penis doesn't get fully erect when I'm about to have sex, its hard but not where it can stay up the air hard..excuse the reference. Also some other times it will get hard, but it will not stay that way for long amounts of time. Does anyone know why this could be? I also have trouble staying hard. For example if it slips out, there is a switch of positions,or the slightest distraction, it wont remain hard. I take adderall but don't notice a difference in this when I take it and when I don't. I exercise regularly (4-5x a week) and eat relatively healthy(for a college student). I am stressed a lot and i know that could be a cause of my problems. but does anyone have any ideas? Also is it to early for someone my age (22) to take pills such as viagra or cialis? What are the long term side effects?

Thanking you in anticipation Your's faithfully SHIRISH ANDHARI
