In brief: Difficult question
Blood pressure is not "unstable.
" it is a physiologic response to a multitude of factors. Blood pressure that varies "wildly" may indicate disorders associated with neurohormonal dysregulation and may be investigated with blood chemistry and noninvasive testing. Often the cause is anxiety and / or the medications (including alcohol) we take.

In brief: Inflammation/insulin
Stop high carb foods (grains, lentils, potato based items).
Also avoid milk protein since it causes insulin resistance that eventually raises BP. Low carb food items such as flesh foods, eggs, non starchy vegetables, avocados, saturated fat (butter, ghee, coconut oil), olive oil are very effective. Get some sunshine daily.
