In brief: Restrict salt

First and foremost is limiting salt intake to what nature intended, which is "not very much", and drinking plenty of water. If this does not work, you have gone beyond what natural medicine has to offer -- but also making a much better start than many people, and doing yourself a favor.

Also try the DASH diet -- increase fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and low-fat dairy. See http://www.nhlbi.nih.gov/hbp/prevent/h_eating/h_eating.htm for more info. And don't forget that regular aerobic can help hypertension as well.

In brief: Natural BP Reduction

Good ways to lower your blood pressure naturally center around diet and exercise.
In your diet you should avoid lots of fats and cholesterol. A natural supplement that helps with blood pressure is fish oil. You can take fill oil pills if you do not have a lot of fish in your diet. However, even with appropriate exercise and diet you may still need medication to control blood pressure.
