Neurocardiogenic Syncope

I am 13 years old and I've suffered from Neurocardiogenic Syncope for 6 years. 3 years ago i was put on medications. Currently, I take 0.2 mg fludrocortisone and 50 mg propranalol daily. These medications lower my blood pressure so that when I put pressure on the vasovagel nerve, causing my blood pressure to drop quite dramatically, my blood pressure is already low so the drop does not affect me. It cusions the effects. If I do not take these medications, I suffer severe headaches, have near-syncope episodes, and if i miss enough doses pass out. When I have a near-syncope episode (not passed out but close to it), I have symptoms of: tingling, blacked out vision, numbness, confusion, and innability to hear. These effects only last about 10-20 seconds but this happens on an almost daily basis. Whenever I begin having these near-syncope episodes, it means my medications aren't working so the doctors increase my dosage. I would like to know some more natural ways to lower my blood pressure so that I do not have to increase my dosage again. Thank you(:
