Hypertension (high blood pressure) can be treated using Ayurveda herbal medicine.
Hypertension or high blood pressure is the silent killer of modern times. People end up with stroke, heart disorders and renal failure due to hypertension.
Most of the antihypertensive drugs have their own side effects like low libido, anxiety, renal toxicity etc. So the best approach is live with a preventive mindset and if you find yourself in the pangs of hypertension, use by all means one or alternative approaches – Ayurveda, herbs, yoga, relaxation, exercise and diet to get rid of high blood pressure.
Ayurvedic Treatment For Mild Hypertension:
Ayurvedic herbs, remedies, dietary suggestions and lifestyle management work best with mild hypertension. Every person can benefit from them and can hope to get rid of high blood pressure without taking any conventional medication.
Actually this is the first stage or first warning sign of a disorder that could literally cause havoc and dispose us to fatal conditions. Most people don’t feel any sign or symptom with hypertension that is why it is called ‘silent killer’.
This first stage warrants dietary and lifestyle modification. If we assume that we are able to control slightly raised blood pressure with natural herbs and at the same can indulge in unhealthy living and eating. That is wrong approach that will soon leave us helpless.
So focus your life for positive changes if you are able to notice blood pressure rise in early stage.
Ayurvedic Treatment For Moderate Hypertension:
Usually you must be taking some medication under some medical expert if your blood pressure levels are in this range. Or any doctor will ask you to follow medical regimen. And you should do the same. This will help to settle down the blood pressure level to normal or optimum levels.
Now there are two roads – one road leads to more and more drugs and despite that your blood pressure will rise with age and you will end up with more medication and their side effects.
The second road might lead you to freedom from raised blood pressure and resulting grave disorders. But, and it is a great but, here your commitment should be business like if you want to normalize blood pressure.
The practical advice is to follow ayurvedic remedies and lifestyle along with modern drugs. Your doctor should be aware of this option so that if you would be having improvement, he could adjust your drugs.
Most of ayurvedic or herbal remedies don’t have any serious side effects or drug interactions. There is almost never any life threatening incidence.
Ayurvedic Treatment For Severe Hypertension:
A novice Ayurveda practitioner should avoid patients with severe hypertension or severe and fluctuating blood pressure. Usually these are adult persons who won’t like to change their lifestyle or dietary habits and an ayurvedist might not provide much benefit by simply suggesting some dietary or herbal supplements.
Usually such persons are on multiple drugs and they might need hospitalization. The practitioner should always be on ‘back foot’ and never come forward with great enthusiasm. Yes, this is the reality, sad reality.
These persons actually do need monitored dietary and lifestyle regimen over a period of several months if they really want improvement in their life. Otherwise there is greater chance of them ending up with heart attack or stroke or angina or other serious condition.
The absolute truth is any person can become healthier if he or she chooses to be but that needs absolute commitment in this kind of situation. Like in earlier state, the hypertensive person should follow closely with doctor or cardiologist and share all relevant information about diet, lifestyle and supplements with them.
Severe hypertensive persons need to analyze and modify their diet and life. And they should. Otherwise the threatening conditions are just outside the door and ready to knock about to come in, whether we welcome them or not, whether we desire them or not.
Ayurveda’s Preventive Approach For High Blood Pressure:
This is the really preventive and beautiful aspect of Ayurveda. If you feel that you have many risk factors of hypertension – smoking, fatty foods, obesity, sedentary habits, family history and like – you should proactively bring about positive changes in your life.
You can also proactively use ayurvedic herbal remedies to keep away high blood pressure from you. Ideally by making healthier adjustment, one can keep away high blood pressure or can realistically hope to be free from severe hypertension.
When you are 30 plus, you should pay attention to your health and get your blood pressure monitored annually. The 40 plus age is age when most people fall prey to hypertension. Close review is needed for diet, exercise, work and recreation and relaxation habits.
