Dash diet may reduce need for blood pressure medication


Q: Is the Dash diet effective for extremely high blood pressure? I really want to avoid taking medication. 

 A: Research has found the Dash diet to be an effective way to lower blood pressure in people who have slightly elevated high blood pressure (prehypertension) and in those with stage 1 (mild to moderate) high blood pressure (hypertension.)
