The post was captioned with a long essay on the causes and risks of high blood pressure. The post, however, discussed the natural ways to deal with high blood pressure and get it under control without any medication. These natural methods are:
Lose weight – It is important to lose weight as it has the most immediate effect on controlling blood pressure. Being overweight can lead to suffering from high blood pressure and hence heart problems.

Walking – Walking can help you regulate your blood pressure. Regular walks are the most ideal exercise for hypertensives according to the expert nutritionist.
Fish – Eating fish twice or thrice a week can help in controlling blood pressure. If you cannot have fish so many times a week, you can also opt to take fish oil supplements to lower blood pressure, says Anjali.
Vegetable juice – Anjali suggests drinking vegetable juice made out of wheatgrass is “especially beneficial” as it can help control blood pressure.
Garlic – Consumption of garlic is known to lower blood pressure. It reduces cholesterol and triglyceride levels too which further helps in lowering blood pressure in hypertensives.
