You may or may not experience a decrease with just reducing your sodium intake. Sometimes you will just need a BP lowering medication. But as your doctor will no doubt tell you, lower your sodium, increase your potassium and exercise to loose weight if that seems appropriate. If that doesn't help within a few days, get medical attention for high BP. It's a serious condition that must be treated in order to avoid serious and possibly fatal complications.

How can you improve your health?

Improving your health can be hard to do but well worthwhile. You have to significantly improve your eating habits and work out daily. Improving your health can not be accomplished overnight; however if you get into a daily routine of exercising (even if it's only walking) for 20 to 30 minutes a day and cutting back on your sugar and fat intake you will begin to notice an improvement in the way you feel. Because it is nearly impossible to get the nutrients your body needs by eating, I would suggest taking an antioxidant along with a mineral supplement.

Can you add an extra shower head to your shower just by cutting a tee into the shower head riser or will you lose pressure to both heads?

Yes, you can install a tee in the riser. The pressure loss will be minimal since both shower heads will have a flow restrictor unless you remove them. If you remove them, you probably wont notice any difference. If you do notice a difference, put the flow restrictor back in the closest shower head to the shower valve.

What can you eat to raise your blood pressure?

Increasing your sodium (salt) intake is the best way of treating a low blood pressure, short of hypertensive medication (which is unavailable in the UK, but available in France and some other EU countries). It takes quite a lot of salt to increase blood pressure, so there's no real need to worry about "eating too much of it". However it is quite an effective treatment - you should notice a benefit from adding (at least) an extra couple of teaspoons of salt to your diet, daily.
