One of the health problems of elders that tends to increase is hypertension. Patients with hypertension tend to choose pharmacological therapy despite the fact that actually there are many types of traditional medicinal plants that are less expensive, easy, affordable and have no side effect such as cucumbers and garlics. This study aimed to search the difference of the effects of the consumption of onions and cucumbers in decreasing the blood pressure among the elders in the village of Deyangan, the work area of Puskesmas in Mungkid City. The research design used in this study was quasy experiment with three group pre-post test design. The total population of this study were 90 people. The sampling method used was purpoive sampling method. The treatment was conducted during 12 days. The results showed that there was a decrease in blood pressure after the treatment using cucumber, garlic or the combination of garlic and cucumber. The analysis result for 7 day treatment using Anova test showed the systolic pressure with P ^ 0.07, which meant there was a difference among the three therapies, but there was no significant difference in diastolic pressure with P ^ 0.689.  On other hand, the analytical result of 12 day therapy showed that there was no difference among the three therapies for both systolic pressure (P ^ 0.361) and diastolic pressure (P ^ 0.879) . Further analysis for 7 day treatment proved that there existed a group that was significantly different, i.e the treatment using garlics with garlics and cucumbers. However, for 12 day treatment, there was no significant difference among the three therapies. Health workers, especially nurses in the community are expected to provide an alternative therapy for mild and moderate hypertension by consuming cucumbers or garlics.
