What decreases blood pressure?

Several things. Blood pressure can be decreased by losing weight, exercising, eating a low salt diet, moderate alcohol consumption, and taking medication. Lifestyle changes may be the first treatment, followed by medication if needed or in addition to lifestyle changes if the blood pressure is high enough.
Healthy food. Stop high carb foods (grains, lentils, potato based items). Also avoid milk protein since it causes insulin resistance that eventually causes high 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.

Treat high BP. Hypertension can be treated without medication. Regular cardiovascular exercise, at least five days per week. DASH diet - salt < 2000mg daily, fiber (> 35 grams daily for women and > 50 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.

I take propranolol 20 due to my mvp (prescribed by dr). It decreases my blood pressure. Will its complications reduce as the time go on?

Some side effects may improve as time goes by and medication may be better tolerated. If you continue to have symptoms, discuss changing to an alternative medication with your physician. Read more...
