Diet and exercise: Diet and exercise, as with many diseases, is generally the first step recommended when trying to lower BP and cholesterol. Check with your doctor first to get cleared for exercise just to make sure you're healthy enough. A healthy diet is always good, as is losing weight if you're overweight.
