In brief: TLC

Same tender loving care of yourself, whether it's preventing blood pressure or cancer.
You can live well by: eat more fruits, veggies, whole grains. Get moving 30-60 minutes daily. Sleep well. Don't smoke. Limit caffeine. Balance work/play. Connect with friends. Smile.

In brief: DASH

Also avoid salt (sodium).
Consider eat dark chocolate. Dash diet it is based on an eating plan rich in fruits and vegetables, and low-fat or non-fat dairy, with whole grains. It is a high fiber, low to moderate fat diet, rich in potasium, calcium, and magnesium.

In brief: Gut/liver healthy

If you digest your food well and prevent intestinal inflammation you can prevent bp.
Do oil change frequently ie monounsaturated fat 1.5 gm per day, choline, and detox liver and gall bladder every quarter.

Treatment for patients must be individualized. Genetics plays an important role, as does diet, nutritional status, baseline vasomotor tone, stress levels, coping mechanisms, physical activity, obesity and other co-morbid conditions, salt and fluid intake,among others. However, overall management of the condition is best left to your doctor.
