using diet therapy instead of medication

using diet therapy instead of medication as an alternative treatment. Beyond dietary strategies, certain additional nonpharmacological treatments may have the capacity to lower BP. For the purposes of this scientific statement, these therapies are called alternative approaches and are broadly classified into 3 categories: behavioral therapies, noninvasive procedures or devices, and exercise-based regimens. There are several reasons why these strategies are likely to become increasingly important and commonly used tools in the management of high BP. First, adherence to dietary strategies has often been shown to be difficult to maintain. Some of the alternative approaches outlined in this document may in theory be more readily adopted and thus serve as practical adjuvants to help lower BP. However, it is recognized that long-term effectiveness and adherence have not been established for most of these approaches, and the degree to which they are adopted when recommended by physicians will likely vary among individuals and approaches.
