Hi,

In order to control the blood pressure your husband should:

- limit his sodium intake by cutting down on table salt, processed food, junk food, chips, pickles, papad, chutney etc
- Drink green tea or herbal tea instead of regular tea or coffee
- Eat fruits & vegetables like bananas,potatoes, oranges,tomatoes, peas that are rich in potassium
- Ask your husband to do some form of exercise daily which includes

Meditation & Yoga as it helps in relieving stress

For pain in his legs I would suggest him to:

- have a glass of lukewarm water with a pinch of cinnamon powder daily first thing in the morning
-eat calcium rich foods like milk and milk products, soyabeans, green leafy
vegetables, nuts like almonds, walnuts etc
-have a bath in lukewarm water with some epsom (magnesium rich) salt added to it or he can also massage gently with hot water pads on the affected areas
- Drink enough water and wear comfortable footwear to work

Your husband shoud avoid smoking, alcohol, excess salt and sugar.

I have given these suggestions assuming he has no other medical problems. Let me know if you want any further information.

Thanks,
Nimisha
