Valsartan is safe, but this may not be agreeing with you.

So you may discuss this with your doctor and this can be replaced with another hypertension medication.

The dietary and other helpful measures fr high blood pressure are;

1) weight loss,

2) sodium reduction,

3) stress management,

4) nutritional supplement interventions of calcium, magnesium, potassium and fish oil.

5) light physical exercise like walking.

6) yoga

7) meditation

8) breathing exercises

9) relaxation exercises

10) stop if you; smoke, drink only in moderation.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
