Here are 271 studies of natural alternatives to lower blood pressure: http://www.greenmedinfo.com/disease/hypertension
I'd start juicing any dark, leafy greens, and veggies. Or smoothies are quick and easy, if you don't have a juicer. Here is my intro to smoothies: 2 cups of organic, baby spinach + 2 cups of frozen fruit in the blender with water
I'd also consider magnesium food sources:
Excellent sources of magnesium include Swiss chard and spinach.
Very good sources of magnesium include mustard greens, summer squash, broccoli, blackstrap molasses, halibut, turnip greens, pumpkin seeds and peppermint.
There are numerous good sources of magnesium including cucumber, green beans, celery, kale and a variety of seeds, including sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, and flax seeds.
Nettles are an easy way to increase minerals to help your blood pressure: http://heal-thyself.ning.com/profiles/blogs/nettles-leaf-herbal-inf...
