In brief: For mild high BP
Diet (no added salt, and cut back on processed foods, eating more fresh produce, fish, lean meats), regular exercise (doesn't have to be intense, duration is more important than intensity) , and weight loss (see the first two, add to them weight training three days a week) all reduce blood pressure over the long haul.
