Reduce your salt intake, eat pepper and garlic. I've heard cinnamon is good for your heart.

If you're not already, just try to eat a healthy, well balanced diet, and watch sodium in foods. I have issues with high sodium foods (not a BP thing, a migraine thing ), and try to do some type of workout daily, even if it's just walking.

I think the general guidelines is 2400 mg a day or less

This suggests keeping it under 1500 if you are trying to lower it: https://www.americanheart.org/presenter.jhtml?identifier=2106

You should be getting this advice from your doctor, not random non-experts on the internet.

Then you need to get another doctor. If you can't communicate with your doctor going there is a waste of time and money. You need to go to one that you can understand and work with.

Exercise, take walks, more water, cut out sugar soft drinks, less saturated fat, more amino acids, more fruit, NO FRIED foods (ouch), and eat lots of green or white vegetables.

The exercise is probably the most important. Get's your metabolism going.

I was discharged from the US AIR FORCE they said I had high blood pressure,I have been told over and over again every time I have a check up that it is high,none of those docs thought it was so bad that they wanted to treat it!
I think they like to scare people so they can milk a lot of office visits out of one!
Cut back on table salt and salty foods and carbonated beverages. Then next time you see your doc ask him. Don't you want to treat me for it,I wager he will say "no just come in and have it checked frequently!"

It seems by "treatment" you mean "drugs you have to take forever."

The doc may feel that it's best "treated" by simply altering to a more healthy diet and lifestyle. It's always best to avoid medications where a more healthy lifestyle will fix the problem by itself.

Also Blood pressure can vary greatly even throughout a single day so checking it frequently is just sensible.

Your BP is easily influenced by your mood/stress levels. If I'm upset I can have my BP soar up to 160/110 quite easily but usually it's a 130/75-80ish with it being slightly raised within a pregnancy.

Monitoring isn't just a ploy to get money off you it's just sensible.

You've not had that baby yet hun??
Seems like you have been ready to drop for AGES!!
How's it going, long to go??

(sorry OP, off topic!)

I have low blood pressure and no doctor ever bothered to tell me how i could fix that either!!
Medical professionals are so useless at times.
I honestly think eat everything in moderation.
Dont over do anything and put you feet up and relax some more!
