can there be a natural way to lower blood pressure, without taking prescription drugs?

Multiple options : Cure and treat are not the same time. There are many good treatment options to control your blood pressure. Curing high blood pressure is different. Weight loss, exercise, low sodium diet, and NSAID avoidance all together can help lower blood pressure significantly and delay the need for medications sometimes for many years. Good luck.
