In brief: Eat healthy food

Stop high carb foods (grains, lentils, potato based items).
Also avoid milk protein since it causes insulin resistance that eventually raises 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.

In brief: Lower BP

To lower your bp, without the use of medications, you need to eat right and exercise.
Eat foods that are low in sodium is a good place to start. You should also be evaluated by your physician to make sure there is not a correctable cause to your hypertension. It is important to get hypertension under control early!
