Let me start by saying I'm not sure if this is in the right section, if it isnt please, move it.
So I'm 20 years old and have hyper tension. I seem to have inherited it from my parents. I consistently seem to read around 160/90, and thats with BP meds. I just went to the doctor today and he slightly upped my dose of lisinopril from 5 to 10mg and even told me to stop lifting for now until we got this under control. So I was wondering if anyone on here had it and if you found anything that helped lower the number? I recently tried to go full force and lower it but I havent seen much difference yet. I am switching to a paleo style diet, started taking more fish oil and drinking green tea instead of coffee. I figured if I can't lift I'll do some real low intensity cardio instead. Basically just walk.
So any tips or advice on how you or I should deal with this in a more natural way?
