If you have prescribed medication don’t be your own doctor. Take your medication as told by the doctor, and if you have any issues, talk to you doctor first before you decide to stop taking them.

Nothing can compare to a good nights sleep in terms of how your body regenerates itself. Make sure you are getting the sleep you need. This is especially true if you are also working out. You actually build muscle and burn fat in your sleep, not when you exercise.

Watch what you eat, respect your body and value yourself by eating only food that is good for you. In most cases this is sufficient to manage your high blood pressure without going on extreme diets and depriving yourself from your favorite foods.
