How to control high blood pressure effectively?
What is the perfect veg breakfast?
Blood pressure arises from the resistance in your blood vessels to the natural flow of blood within them. So if you an maintain a diet that is healthy in fresh foods rich in vitamins, cow ghee, anti oxidants and alkaline foods, you can safeguard your overall health as well as BP. Ideally, breakfast should be or 2 large portions of fresh fruit of your choice and home made nashta with lots of dahi. Have a healthy Diwali. Best wishes.

Control Blood Pressure With Ayurveda

MD, Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)

Control Blood Pressure With Ayurveda

Hypertension is a condition where the blood has to exert extra pressure to flow through the blood vessels. While there is a genetic component to it, the more strong contributing factors are modified lifestyle and dietary changes. There are also a lot of environmental changes that have contributed to this new epidemic. While earlier people in their 50s and 60s would be diagnosed with hypertension, now there are people in 30s and 40s taking hypertension pills. Excess fat accumulation is the major cause of hypertension in younger patients.

There begins the complexity of the issue. Hypertension which requires medications to control it, they lead to side effects and bring in a host of other diseases like diabetes, and obesity which in turn bring in a whole lot of complications. A more easy way to manage would be to prevent and of course, after onset, look at how naturally it can be managed.

Ayurveda has numerous substances that have been proven to have beneficial effects in controlling blood pressure over the past 1000s of years.

  1. Celery or ajwain helps blood vessels to dilate and reduces concentration of stress hormones in the blood.
  2. Ashwagandha has a wide range of actions and improves the body's ability to handle physical and mental stress. This in turn improves blood pressure, obesity, and depression.
  3. Citrus fruits contain Vitamin C which prevents fragility of the capillaries (thinner blood vessels).
  4. Cow's urine prevents hardening of blood vessels and is of curative value in those who have blood pressure due to hardening of blood vessels. 
  5. Triphala which is a combination of amla, haritaki, and bibhitaki helps reduce inflammation that leads to blood pressure, thereby helping to control it.
  6. Jatamansi - By helping the free radical damage on the arteries, it protects the arteries and prevents cholesterol accumulation. It also is a very well-proven stress reliever and has additional benefits on hypertension.
  7. Arjuna - By helping the metabolism of the bad cholesterol in the liver, this protects the inner lining of the heart and thereby helps control hypertension.
  8. Calcium and potassium containing substances help remove sodium and thereby improve blood pressure.
  9. Natural herbs like Brahmi, Sarpagandha, Shankhpushpi, and Chandana are effective Ayurvedic cure and treatment for hypertension.
  10. Rasayana treatment from ayurveda is having excellent results, however everyone requires unique rasayan as per their body types.
  11. Watermelon helps in dilation of the blood vessels.
  12. Aloe gel, barberry, calamus, valerian, skullcap, gotu kola cayenne, myrrh, motherwort, hawthorn and jatamansi have all been shown to help manage hypertension over thousands of years.
  13. A glass of warm milk mixed with saraswat powder is also helpful for patients with high blood pressure.

These are natural remedies which were a part of diet since times immemorial. Including them in the diet, reducing processed foods, regular exercise, avoiding alcohol and smoking can be some natural ways to prevent and if required control hypertension. Stress is here to stay, but can definitely be managed with a little conscious effort.

Hello dear High triglycerides and cholesterol can cause atherosclerotic heart disease or narrowed coronary arteries in the heart can cause the symptoms of angina, when theheart muscle is not provided with enough oxygen to function. Decreased blood supply to the brain may be due to narrowed small arteries in the brain or because the larger carotidarteries in the neck may become blocked. This can result in a transient ischmic attack or stroke. Peripheral artery disease describes gradual narrowing of the arteries that supply the legs. During exercise , if the legs do not get enough blood supply, they can develop pain , called claudication . Other arteries in the body may also be affected by plaque buildup causing them to narrow, including the mesenteric arteries to the intestine and the renal arteries to the kidney. Change life style .do meditation,yoga, Go walk daily, do any one physically activity daily i.e.play any game., Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress,take plenty of water in day time. And 1 glass of water before bed at night. use flax oil, omega-3 fatty meal or cap., take .green veg., whole grain. Garlic,. Cod liver oil. Take anti cholesterol medicines . for uric acid take tab. zyloric 100 mg once a day.

It is a statistically proven fact that smokers and other tobacco users are more likely to develop disease, suffer miserably later in life and die earlier than are people who dont use tobacco. I have experience in successfully making people quit smoking through a customized smoking cessation program which includes counseling medications and support do reply back for medication prescriptions. Being also a general physician and registered dietitian, I prescribe both evidence based herbal as well as allopathic medicines complementing with dietary guidelines and home remedies carefully personalized for each individual patient.

Hi, use the following methods: 1 - Include plenty of fluids (at least 8-10 glasses of water daily) and restrict salt intake in the diet. 2 - Drinking curry leaves (curry patta) juice 1-2times a day for 1-2 months on an empty stomach is found beneficial. For preparing the juice grind washed curry leaves in a mixer with about ½ - 3/4 glass water. Sieve and add ½ - 1 lemon juice and drink fresh. 3 - Include fresh garlic cloves or garlic pearls or 1/4 tsp garlic powder daily in the diet. 4 - Methi seeds taken regularly are found to help in stabilising blood pressure. 5 - Mix 1 tsp honey, 1 tsp ginger (adrak) juice and 1 tsp cumin (jeera) powder. Have twice a day. 6 - Include apples in the diet for a few days. It has a diuretic effect and thus brings down the B. P. 7 - Fruits such as mosambi, orange, peaches (aaru), plum (aloo bukhara), watermelon (tarbooz) are also beneficial. 8 - Consumption of brown rice is found very beneficial as it has very low sodium content and low cholesterol. 9 - Consumption of natural diuretics like coconut water, butter milk is very effective in regulating blood pressure. 10-Drink coriander (dhania) juice made from fresh dhania (same way as curry leaves juices) 3 times a day. If this is not effective, start having fenugreek (methi) juice instead (made from fresh methi) and if this is also not effective, move to curry leaves juice. Drink each juice for 10-12 days at least before you decide. If it is not working and then move to the next one. 11 - Last but not the least, rest, relaxation and good sleep are effective in keeping Blood pressure under control.

General Physician,
1. Not by one reading we cannot come to a conclusion. 2. Check your bp regularly for a week after taking good food and adequate water, 3. If your bp is persistently 100/60 then you should have a cardiac evaluation and serum electrolytes check.

Some time variations occurs due to overconscientious self measurement. If not change your diet and reduce weight upto 70kg by reducing night food quantity. Avoid excessive salt, pickles, day sleep etc. Randomly meet doctor for assessment when ever in a state of joy. If bp is always more than 150/90 then start simple herbal medicine like tab serpina (himalaya) 1/2 at night and monitor bp after 10days.
