Physical or health: My dear -- elevated BP or hypertension is more than numbers -- and if your physical exam requires you to seek medical evaluation for elevated BP -- then i would see this as an opportunity to get yourself checked out -- by the way, you can be totally normal and healthy and have an occasional elevated BP measurement.

Hypertension: No quick fixes but stop alcohol, smoking, caffeine, salt intake, and weight loss.
