No one best way...: There is no single best way to lower blood pressure. The treatment of hypertension is multifaceted, but you can expect better control of your numbers and your long-term outcomes with lifestyle changes, including a healthy diet and regular exercise. Prescription medications have a role as well, and the best one(s) for you, based on your medical history, can be determined by a primary care doctor.
