Dear lybrate-user, - You can control your bp by following a healthy lifestyle including a well balanced salt restricted diet, doing regular exercise, proper sleep & keeping stress levels to the minimum - have more of fruits, vegetables including green leafy ones, whole grains instead of refined ones, heart healthy fats as in fish such as salmon, tuna, mackeral, olive & canola oil, nuts, avocados & flax seeds - have a salt restricted diet, avoid fried, fatty & junk foods, also pickles, papads & namkeens, restrict intake of tea, coffee to 1-2 cups per day, also avoid alcohol & smoking if you do - do regular exercise like jogging, brisk walking, swimming, cycling for 20-30 min daily, also do yoga, meditation & deep breathing to relax your mind & body which will bring down the bp by a few points - sleep well for at least 7-8 hrs at night, keep your sleep & wake up time fixed - destress by reading, listening to music, playing a game or follow a hobby - try to reduce weight by diet & exercise - if not much significant change after 2-3 months then you may require medication to lower it.
