Hypertension or increased blood pressure is a disease that is caused due to our modern lifestyle. The blood vessels supplying blood to the various body parts become narrow, because of which additional pressure is exerted to ensure blood reaches all parts of the body.
This is a chronic condition and requires lifelong medication. Homeopathy, however, looks at treating hypertension holistically and will not only bring down the blood pressure temporarily but also address the underlying symptoms.
- Effective in treating hypertension that is caused by lifestyle changes
- Patient is usually thin, active, nervous, and irritable with a short temper.
- Increased tendency to consume caffeine, alcohol, and spicy and fried food.
- Males who are aggressive and highly ambitious
- Patient may have constipation.
- Person usually feels worse in the morning and gets better through the day.
- One of the best homeopathic medicines for high blood pressure
- The nervous system is highly irritated.
- Not to be used in pregnant women
- Reduces mortality in the long run
- Useful in patients who take excessive salt or are used to adding salt in all their food items
- The patient has a liking for salty, spicy, sour and fried food items.
- Increased thirst associated with a dry mouth
- Swelling of the feet and abdomen is very common.
- Swollen or puffy face
- Asymmetric coating of the tongue, anemia, and palpitations
- Past events in the person’s life, which may have provoked anger, but which is suppressed
- Flushing of the face
- Congested head and face due to increased blood flow and a throbbing headache
- Head feels heavy so much so that you cannot put down your head on a pillow.
- Head feels big and enlarged.
- There could be a correlation with the sun where exposure to sun aggravates the problem
- Patient does not feel like working, is irritated, and gets very excited at everything.

- Pulse rate is higher and there is throbbing of the temporal arteries.
- Useful where the blood pressure increases suddenly, in patients who normally have good BP readings
- Person has a fear of death and is very anxious.
- Increased restlessness and palpitations
- Patient could have congested headaches during these episodes.
- Blood pressure readings are worsened by smoking cigarettes.
We're all guilty of making fun of snorers but sometimes this snoring can be a symptom of sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is a condition where breathing is not continuous and may start and stop many times while asleep. This affects the quality of your sleep and in turn can affect many aspects of your health including your cardiovascular health. Here's how:
High Blood Pressure
When a sleep apnea patient's breathing stops, the oxygen levels in the blood also suddenly fall. This can increase your blood pressure. High blood pressure means that the heart muscles need to work harder to pump blood through the body.
As a result of high blood pressure, the heart walls may become thicker and the heart muscles become stiffer. This is known as cardioyopathy. As this condition worsens, the heart becomes weaker and is unable to maintain a regular rhythm. This can eventually lead to heart failure.
An irregular heartbeat is also known as arrhythmia. This may also be related to the changes in the heart's structure that follow the drop in blood oxygen levels. In many cases, arrhythmia has no visible symptoms and can often go undiagnosed. This can result in the formation of blood clots in the atria which can lead to a stroke.
Sleep apnea is easy to diagnose. If the doctor feels that you show symptoms of sleep apnea, you may be asked to stay on the hospital overnight and undergo a sleep evaluation. This tests a variety of body functions including brain activity, eye movements, heart rate, breathing patterns and blood oxygen levels.
Treatment for sleep apnea depends on the causes for this condition. If you are overweight, regular exercise and a change in diet can help you lose the excess weight and cure sleep apnea. Similarly, if your sleep apnea is triggered by an allergy, treating the allergy can help cure the sleep apnea. Other forms of treatment for sleep apnea may include:
Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP)
This is a machine which pumps air into the body through a nasal mask. By keeping the pressure in the machine higher than normal air pressure the upper airway passages are kept open and hence the quality of your sleep is improved. An auto CPAP machine can modulate the air pressure such that it is higher when you inhale and lower when you exhale.;
Your doctor may suggest oral devices that allow you to keep your mouth open while you sleep. This is easier to use than CPAP machine but less effective.
Surgery is the last resort when it comes to treatment for sleep apnea.
My wife's family has history of heart problem. She is 70 years old and perfectly fit. She would like to check if there are any blockages in her heart. Any test you could kindly recommend? By the way, she is not on any medication except for some vitamins. Thanks.
I suffer from heart palpitations and chest pain. More over a strange feeling in my head please help.
Burning in my neck region as well as food pipe after lunch and dinner as well as pain in chest something.

My husband is 45 years old & having high bp, diabetic problem from last 10 yrs. He is taking his medicines regularly & also doing blood test frequently as per doctor's advice. As per last week's report his sugar reading is - 102 (fasting) & 105 (pp). His bp is always in high range of 139/90 even after taking regular medicine hence we are worried for that. Your advice is require please.
An injury to an artery or to a vein is defined as a Vascular Injury. A Vascular Injury of any kind poses a great challenge in daily lifestyle. These injuries require urgent medical attention and intervention if preserving a limb is desirable. Sometimes, serious Vascular Injuries do not show significant symptoms leading to a delayed diagnosis. Such injuries are mostly seen in the youth, especially the male population. However, Peripheral Vascular Injuries might also be caused by firearms, road accidents, diagnostic procedures, and bomb blasts, or due to other certain sudden and unfortunate incidents.
Types of Vascular Injuries-
Vascular Injuries can be divided into the following six major groups primarily:
● Spasm: A spasm is caused due to reduced blood flow in the vessels caused by localized trauma.
● Thrombosis: It refers to a blood clot which partially or completely blocks the blood vessel and might be caused due to an injury to the vascular tissues.
● Arterial Emboli: Arterial Emboli refers to a sudden interruption of blood flow to a body part or an organ resulting from blockage due to a blood clot that acts as an embolus (an unattached mass traveling through the bloodstream and capable of clogging arteries, veins, and capillaries).
● Laceration: Also known as Transection, it causes irregular vascular tears and segmental loss due to blunt trauma or high-velocity missiles. A longitudinal and badly lacerated vessel might lead to a greater blood loss than a neatly transected vessel.
● Contusion: Also referred to as Intimal Flap, it is the tearing of the inner coat (intima) of the blood vessel caused due to extra stretch or a damaging and concussive force. A small flap measuring less than five millimeters may not necessarily block blood flow but can aggravate thrombosis. However, a larger flap might protrude into the inner wall of the blood vessel causing restricted blood supply.
● Arterio-Venous Fistula: When an artery and its adjacent vein are simultaneously injured, it leads to their connection causing the blood to flow from artery to the vein (high pressure to low pressure). It leads to inadequate blood supply in the desired direction. Arterio-Venous Fistula can possibly cause congestive cardiac failure.
● Aneurysm and Pseudoaneurysm: Aneurysm refers to the bulging of the blood vessel, and is rarely produced. It is generally seen that Pseudoaneurysm follows trauma instead of Aneurysm. Pseudoaneurysm refers to collective thrombosis.
There are several non-invasive and invasive methods for the treatment of Peripheral Vascular Injuries. The non-invasive tests include Ankle-brachial Index, Hand Held Doppler, Duplex Ultrasound, B-mode Ultrasound, and Color Flow Doppler Ultrasound.
The invasive tests include Angiography, Magnetic Resonance Angiography, and Digital Subtraction Angiography.
There are several treatment options that are available for correcting Peripheral Vascular Injuries.
● Primary Anastomosis: Referring to a surgical connection between adjacent blood vessels, it is performed when there is minimal or no segmental loss. Primary Anastomosis in Segmental loss has a high risk of thrombosis.
● Reverse Saphenous Vein Graft: When the segmental loss is greater than two centimeters, Saphenous vein (the largest vein in the body running along the length of the lower limb) is harvested. The vein is used upside down in the repair of the artery. It is ensured that there is no tension on the suture line or any kink in
● Lateral Repair: When there is a lateral tear, it is primarily sutured at the tear site.
There are several treatment options available for peripheral vascular injuries. However, it is always advisable to consult a doctor before opting for any treatment as the condition of a patient varies from patient to patient.
