Some of the simple ways to reduce and prevent high blood pressure include reducing salt or sodium intake, limiting alcohol consumption, quitting a smoking habit, managing stress properly and adding more potassium into your diet.

Some doctors even recommend going to a massage therapist every once in a while to ensure you reduce stress.

Sometimes, your blood pressure may be dangerously high that your doctor may prescribe medications to reduce your blood pressure quickly. When this is the case, you may be given several medications to try which one would help you best or take a combination of them to reduce blood pressure.
