Thank you for the input.

There are as such no natural medicine which can lower the blood pressure. Small studies have shown that the garlic capsules can reduce cholesterol levels but more study is required. Please read this resource.

The diet which is recommended for high blood pressure is DASH. Please read this link for a diet plan for it.

Also try to exercise as much as possible & reduce weight along with follow up with doctor for any medical treatment.

Hope this information will help you.
Wish your healthy life.
