Hello. From how much time you have this? Any associated complain like headache, vertigo, fever etc with this? Lifestyle changes as mentioned by Dr R. S. will help you a lot. Alongside you should have homeopathic medicines also.

Hello there, Changing your lifestyle can go a long way toward controlling high blood pressure. Your doctor may recommend you eat a healthy diet with less salt, exercise regularly, quit smoking and maintain a healthy weight. But sometimes lifestyle changes aren't enough. In addition to diet and exercise, your doctor may recommend medication to lower your blood pressure. Your blood pressure treatment goal depends on how healthy you are.
