Eat fish oil. It lowers blood pressure and also lowers cholesterol, which would be a good bonus for almost anyone.
Look for a brand that includes something along the lines of 400 milligrams of EPA and 200 milligrams of DHA.
Plant oils work as well but are much less effective since your body must turn the omega-3 fatty acids in them into EPA and DHA.

Hello Doctor,I am 53 years old female and i have high blood pressure.Recently doctor suggest me for angiography.For high blood pressure is it necessary for angiogram ??Please doctor's suggest me actually what should i do??
I tested at home and my bp is 144/109. 86 pulse. Is there anything natural I can do too to reduce this?(vitamins, herbs, foods) I work with a boss who yells illogically and plays head games. Then is nice and gives money. But can not quit. What are my options for natural care?
my wife has times during the day when her heart will suddenly speed up and she feels faint. her doctor told her she has low blood pressure, but when she has one glass of wine she gets a headache like she has hypertension. what do you think is wrong?
I am a 72 year old woman in good health with elevated BP in morning. Started Bystolic ( less than 2 mg at night) My BP was 113/68 with pulse of 62. Am I getting too low? My family doc says too low is a risk factor for stroke in older women. What say?
Hi, I am 46 y/o female (just turned 46), still active. My height is only 4'9" and weight 122 lb. But my BP and my pulse is high. Usually I don't go to see a doctor, only for my papsmear/mamo. This week I've had a cold and couldn't come to work. I went to see my doctor (after 2 years) and my BP was 150 (didn't tell me how much diastolic was). She just told me to come for another check up in 4 months. I called her next day and asked for some lab tests (cholesterol, creatinine, which I've had done 6 years ago). Why she didn't offer this to me during my visit? Anything else should I check? I decided to change my diet and checking my bp regularly at home. Interesting, that sistolic went down. The highest I've had 123 and lowest 103, but diasolic still high - 79-90. My pulse is 82-96. I think this numbers are telling that I have prehypertension. I work as a sonographer in a busy hospital. My work is also very stressfull. My father died suddenly from the heart attack at 67. My mother has HBP and taking meds. So, I am in high risk. What else can I check (tests) to examine my heart (coronary arteries)? I don't want to start meds.
Hello...my husband is 38 and takes medicine for high blood pressure. His mother gives him a diuretic to take and, if he runs out of his own medicine, will give him some of her blood pressure medicine. Right now he is in the hospital for kidney stones...can any of this cause that?
Dear Doctor, I'm a 36 year old mail, 5'11", 242 lbs. (down from 250 lbs.) with prehypertension . My blood pressure is variable but the vast majority of the time is in the prehypertensive range. Sometimes, in the mornings, it is at or below 120/80,...
