Hello and thank you for your question.
Blood pressure of 134/93 does not put you at any immediate or even short-term risk or danger. Your upper number is XXXXX to be in the 110-120s but not necessarily abnormal in the 130s, just border-line high. Your buttom number should be in the 70-80 but 93, again, is not a very dangerous number.
The first route to control your blood pressure is always life-style, especially if your blood pressure is just border-line high. I have not heard of garlic being using for blood pressure control and honestly, do not think it would be helping you.
What is very important that you cut out salt from your diet. Cutting down on sodium can lower your blood pressure by 7-10 points. Also, you can follow a diet called "DASH" diet - it stands for Dietary Approach to Stop Hypertension. There are many different articles and recipes and examples provided for you on line for it.
Exercise is very important, 30 minutes per day of cardio exercise, 5 times per week will help you loose weight and keep your blood pressure down.
