In brief: Several ways

Weight loss, low salt intake, regular physical activity, avoiding or moderating alcohol intake, and a dash diet all help treat high blood pressure, as can treating underlying conditions.
If the blood pressure is not that high, it is worth trying these things first, but if it's really high, medicine is required.

In brief: Depends

Depends on how high it is, but typically BP can be lowered some with weight loss an a lower sodium, higher potassium diet.
Don't smoke, and take a look at: http://www.Dashforhealth.Com/.
