I was having highblood pressure for 3 years and all the while I was taking Diovan as the Dr told me it gives most protection to end organs damagers caused by uncontrolled blood pressue in our body.
Recently I read to control BP without usage of medications is to change of Lifestyle. 
So I have put in 1 hour of physical activities in my daily life and I noticed I lost few KGs and most of all my friends complimented my slimmer & healthier look.  My biggest reward is I m no longer hypertensive.  This is my 3 week no medications and my BP is 133/72.
I believed hypertensive patiens should continue with their drug treatments if life style changers failed to bring down BP to lower then 140/90.

If hypertension is not severe a change in life style, such a lose weight, quit smoking, exercise, etc. might help, but at the present time, there is more aggresive attitude against hypertension, because it has been found that even moderate hypertension can damage the organs, therefore medication is being prescribed more frequently and to a younger population. A change in life style is also prescribed along with the medicines.

wonderful news! I was dx with white coat hypertension many years ago but refused their drugs. I use the Resperate machine, eat right (I am a vegetarian) walk 1 or 2 miles daily and also take Hawthorne herb daily. My main problem is stress, not good at it and have to make myself calm down and breathe correctly and often have to take calming herbs. I cannot have bp taken at dr office or I freak out but I always take it prior to a visit and its usually around 130/70, sometimes abit lower and often abit higher when I first take it. While I realize the ideal is now supposed to be under 120/80 I cannot help but feel the pharmaceutical companies are benefiting from all the people now put on bp meds. Same with cholesterol, they wanted to put my husband on the meds many years ago, he went vegetarian and exercises and he is a healthy 86yo on no meds and still alive LOL. Remember what Hippocrates said "let your food be your medicine and your medicine be your food".

So called "White Coat High Blood Pressure, has to be treated too. Regardless what causes the blood pressure to go up, there is the same risk of having a stroke or a heart attack, therefore it's advisable to have it treated. A regular stroke and a "White Coat" stroke are not different, they both can leave you crippled or dead. There is no question that an extreme healthy change of life style can replace medicines in certain cases, but no in all. For safety, you should monior your blood pressure regularly and keep a record. Remember that even a mild hypertension can damage your organs over a period of time.
