In brief: Lifestyle changes

High blood pressure is caused by a combination of habits and genetics.
You can change your habits by doing everything you know you should do; low salt, low fat diet. Exercise 30 minutes a day, lose weight, moderate caffeine use, moderate alcohol use, avoid stimulants etc. In the real world that just never happens. The rare patient does all that and that is why there are over 100 different BP meds.
