In brief: Headaches and HBP

sy or may not be related.
If u have headaches when BP is high and not when it is not them I suggest they are related in you.

In brief: Treat high BP.

Hypertension can be treated without medication.
Regular cardiovascular exercise, at least five days per week. DASH diet - salt < 2000mg daily, fiber (50 grams daily for women and 70 grams daily for men), lean protein sources and complex carbohydrates. Stress reduction - meditation and such. Sleep 6-9 hours nightly. Don't smoke cigarettes - ever. BP over 140/80 can cause headaches.

In brief: Change it

Stop high carb foods (grains, lentils, potato based items).
Also avoid milk protein since it causes insulin resistance that eventually raises BP. Flesh foods, eggs, non starchy vegetables, avocados, saturated fat (butter, ghee, coconut oil), olive oil are very healthy. Get sunshine daily.

Headaches often cause a rise in the blood pressure.
Except for extreme cases, one cannot feel their blood pressure.
