Non-pharmacological management of hypertension is indicated in individuals who are prehypertensive. Prehypertension is systolic blood pressure between 120 to 139 mmHg and diastolic blood pressure between 80 to 89 mmHg. These patients should be trying with lifestyle modification for at least three months before starting medications.
Great importance is being given to lifestyle modifications, because of definite benefits observed in patients who follow this. Lifestyle changes have advantages not only in the control of hypertension, but also in the management of dyslipidemia and diabetes.
In a prehypertensive individual, the following things have to be taken care of:
While the major effects of tobacco are in the development of atherosclerotic heart disease, its role in the management of hypertension cannot be forgotten. The pressure effect of tobacco is so strong that the blood pressure comes down immediately after stoppage of smoking.Tobacco is one of the agents that induce clustering of risk factors.
2) Body weight:
Lowering of excess body weight can lower blood pressure. In one of the studies, it was found that decrease of 1 kg of body weight is associated with an average fall of 1.6 mmHg. Indeed, in many instances, it would be possible to discontinue medications after effective weight control.
3) Dietary Sodium:
Restriction of dietary sodium is one of the most useful methods of controlling hypertension. This fact should be emphasized, because of the increasing use of fast foods, which have high salt content. It is admitted that it cannot be achieved easily. Norman Kaplan, a renowned cardiologist, gives the following practical suggestions.
Do not add salt during cooking or at the table. Sodium consumption should be less than 1500 mg per day, an average individual consumes 8 to 10 times more sodium than required.
If salt is desired, add half sodium and half potassium chloride preparations.Avoid fast foods.
Be careful about the sodium content of some medications and specifically read the labels indicating sodium content in your food.
Alcohol consumption of more than 30 mL of ethanol is found to increase blood pressure. Hence, moderation is recommended. One of the major hazards of drinking is the usual associated consumption of high salt savories, which is an unseen source of salt. Instead, use less salted food.
Regular physical exercise has been found to induce reduction in blood pressure. Strenuous exercise should be done 45 minutes a day for at least six days a week.
6) Relaxation techniques:
There have been various reports as to the efficacy of yoga, transcendental meditation, etc., but none of these were accepted on the basis of statistical studies. However, it is widely accepted that relaxation techniques along with other reduction in risk factors do definitely decrease the incidence of cardiovascular complications.

Everybody has a certain amount of dopamine & endorphins in their which are the pleasure chemical. Some people produce less of it, genetically or due to other reasons. These individuals seek out substance in various forms for their dopamine & endorphin levels to be maintained. Tolerance. Different genetically programmed individuals start consuming substances at different age. And after a certain level, they need more of the same substance for the desired effect. This is called tolerance.
Withdrawal. When a person is addicted to a substance long enough that when one stops its suddenly, it can cause physicals effects like tremors, sleeplessness, cravings, body ache, etc. These features are known as withdrawals.
When all these three features are seen in a person along with a lifestyle which only involves getting & consuming the substance as main priority, then we can diagnose the person as substance dependence. The main substances of abuse seen in our country are:
- tobacco (cigarettes, bidis, gutkha, tambaku, khaini, paan, zarda)
- alcohol (beer, spirit)
- cannabis (ganja, charas, weed, grass, marijuana)
- opioids (garad, brown sugar, heroin, cough syrup)
- benzodiazapenes (button, roofies)
- inhalant (whitener, nail paint remover)
- hallucinogens (lsd, acid, mushrooms, amphitamines)
And many more which can be experimented with and can become drugs of abuse.
The main thing to keep in mind regarding treatment of substance dependence is that it is a psychiatric illness like diabetes or hypertension, and that it is not under the voluntary control of the patient. The patient requires strong social support to strengthen his motivation to leave the substance. Medications can only help in suppressing the withdrawal features & control cravings to some extent. But acceptance of substance dependence as a mental illness by the society is the need for the hour.
Any patient should not try leaving substance on their own as withdrawal can lead to further complications. Please consult your nearest psychiatrist for medication & further help.
