At this age high blood pressure generally develops because of stressfull life with irregular schedule inadequate sleep lack of exercise and eating junk food. You should modify your lifestyle to avoid all this. You should exercise regularly. Perform isotonic exercise like walking aerobic etc. Control fat and salt in diet. Drink adequate amount of water. Start meditation to relax your mind. If all these things don't help consult a physician/ cardiologist.

As per my scanning report taken 6 weeks there is no fetal heart rate. Doctor advised to go for abortion. Is it true that heart beat starts before 3 months. My friends heart beat start only after 3 months. I'm confused whether to wait or go for abortion.

No abortion yet. Be very clear about it, get ultrasound repeated from a standard place at 8 weeks. It is positive for heartbeat at 8 weeks for sure, if not it's called blighted ovum syndrome. If you have no symptoms like spotting, pain lower abdomen, just relax and pray till 8 weeks when you will get to see heart beat for sure. Good luck and do share the good news with all of us here on the forum.

At 16 you should be taught at school about heart health. I am happy to teach you-share with as many people as you can. No burgers or street food as they are loaded with bad fats which block the blood vessels of heart/ brain causing heart attack/ stroke Some good fats are a must , depends on age but 1 spoon of pure ghee/ butter and lots more for growing up kids. high protein diet with simple proteins like milk , curd , eggs & non veg if a person eats some nuts about a katori of peanuts /almonds/ cashews/ wallnuts etc assorted or alone. nuts give good fats & proteins too. simple exercise like walking suits everyone no stress but only result oriented healthy stress which gets us good marks or fruitful results in the job well done no smoking or exposure to pollution. eat healthy, exercise moderately and remain positive.

I think by ring, you mean a stent to remove blockage in the blood vessels of the heart, get it done if there is 1 or 2 vessels affected by blocks.

Both of them are good if used alternately. You should not stick to one specific type of oil. It will help you to get benefits of different oils and is good for health.

Dear sir, if a person has a low blood pressure without experiencing any symptoms like dizziness, fainting etc. There is no problem. But if the same person takes stress, or anxiety or depression, can he get affected by cardiac arrest, heart problem, diabetes or dangerous health issue?

MD - Alternate Medicine, BHMS
Homeopath, Surat
If the blood pressure is low and no symptoms, then it is fine. But if you have any such symptoms, the immediate response should be take sugar in any form. Either glucose water, electral powder, ORS, etc. Stress, anxiety or depression are the things which affect all the individuals and yes it can cause heart and other problems. Best to continue exercising, so that it can be avoided.

How Effective is Homeopathy in Treating Cardiovascular Diseases?

MD - Homeopathy
Homeopath, Aurangabad
How Effective is Homeopathy in Treating Cardiovascular Diseases?

The Homeopathic medicines have been made use of even before the 18th century, but the systematic investigation and thorough study on these medicines were carried out by the German physician Samuel Christian Hahnemann. Homeopathic medicines are very useful in strengthening the resistance of an individual to an illness and medications are provided after studying the sick patient and not the disease. The medicines prescribed do not mainly depend on the diagnostic testing or blood chemistry analysis. They are, in fact, prescribed on the basis of direct observation of the symptoms reported by a patient.

How effective is homeopathy in treating cardiovascular diseases?
Homeopathy medicines are widely used to treat several medical conditions. Homeopaths prescribe constructional remedies for illnesses that are chronic in nature and these mainly include cardiovascular complaints. It is after understanding the cardiac symptoms of a patient are homeopathic medicines prescribed. The different cardiac complaints for which homeopathic medicines can be taken include congestive heart failure, palpitations, angina and syncope.

The homeopathy medicines are used to treat even many clinical and cardiovascular diseases. Many random trials have been done to prove that homeopathy treatment is effective in treating conditions like childhood diarrhoea, allergic conditions and post-operative conditions. These medicines are also used to treat respiratory, nervous cardiovascular and musculoskeletal systems. High blood pressure can also be treated using the homeopathy medicines. This is because an increased blood pressure is very risky as it can cause heart troubles and there are possibilities of an individual having a stroke.

Cardiac problems that can be Treated By Homeopathy Medicines

  1. Conditions like nervousness and worrying are the main cause of hypertension and it results in high blood pressure. Hence, this condition should be checked on time.
  2. It is very important that right medications are taken and that are prescribed by a qualified doctor. The homeopathic medicines that are prescribed for high blood pressure include Nux vomica, Calcarea carbonica, Sanguinaria, Plumbum and Phosphorous.
  3. Use of homeopathic medicines unlike the prescription medicines does not cause any side effects, and they are of great use in decreasing hypertension.

However, homeopathic medicines should also be taken after consulting the Doctor. The blood pressure and cholesterol level of an individual are lowered using homeopathic medicines, and these are of great use in preventing a heart attack. There are many cardiologists who even prescribe homeopathic medicines to their patients for treating a cardiovascular disease. The depiction of cardiac symptoms is quite different and these include bursting, aching, cold, cramps, heaviness, jerks, pulsation, spasm, oppression and throbbing and depending on the symptoms, homeopathic medicines are provided to treat the health condition.

Have a walk instead. Maintain good bowel habits. For gas some herbal medicines might also help you but after proper history taking. Please update with your valuable feedback.
