Customer Question

I have had high blood pressure for seventeen years. It was controlled by medication for a long time. But my doctor has had to increase the number of medications to control it. Recently I lost seventeen pounds. When he took my pressure several times it was 130/90 he feels I am nervous in his office and does not want to increase the meds. I am trying to lose ten more pounds to get to my correct weight. He is not big on dietary supplements. Can anyone recommend a vitamin or oil that would further lower my blood pressure?
Thanks
