In brief: Diet and exercise

Uncontrolled hypertension usually occurs to indiviudals who are not compliant with their medications and a low salt diet.
Therefore having a low salt diet and getting exercise is the most effective way to treat hypertension. If these conservative methods do not work, then speaking with your doctor to arrange for the apprpraite blood pressure meds would be the next step.
