High Blood Pressure Treatment and Sexual Weakness

HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE

Most people who are suffering from high blood pressure have no signs while few of them experience headache, nosebleeds or shortness of breath. You can even have hypertension for years without any symptoms of it. It should be controlled as uncontrolled high blood pressure increases the risk of developing serious health problems such as heart attack and stroke, retinopathy, renal problem etc.

In Ayurveda, hypertension is known as "Raktvat'/ or 'Raktagat Vat' (means where 'vata dosh' has entered 'Rakta dhatu'). The vitiation of Vata and Pitta doshas are the main cause of this disease. Hypertension, according to Ayurveda, is an abnormality of Rakta dhatu (blood) which is popularly known as Shonita dushti (vitiated blood).

Herbal preparations (homemade remedies) which are highly effective in hypertension:

  • Arjuna Ksheerapaka – Milk processed with Arjuna (Terminalia arjuna).
  • Lashuna Ksheerapaka – Milk processed with garlic.

Herbs used solo or combo:

Ashwagandha, Sarpagandha
Amalki, Bala, Brahmi, Shankhpushpi, Ash gourd, Jatamansi, Giloy, Gotu kola

Other herbs which have been proved to have antihypertensive property by research works are:

Celery, Bishop’s weed, Ajawain, Carrot, Flaxseed / Linseed, Tomato – Drumstick – Moringa (Shigru),
Tulsi – Bhumi Amla – Pome granate –
Seasame, Wheat bran, – Black plum,
Ginger etc.

READYMADE AYURVEDIC MED made of above and others are commonly Sarpagandha Ghan vati, Giloy satv, Arjunarishta, Ashwagandharisht , Brahmi vati, Hridyarnav Ras etc (Pl do not take yourself but discuss with ayurvedic doctor first)

TIP
Many of above medicines may be taken concurrently with your allopathic medicine. People who are hypertensive for long and on modern anti hypertensive, usually lose sexual power sooner (Both male n female). On the contrary many of the above herbs are Rejuvenating in nature and if u start using ayurvedic antihypertensives either parallel to your current modern regime or switch to pure ayurveda in phased manner, you will notice how Rejuvenation of sex comes back. However it's not overnight action but is conquered gradually - but definately. 

Anybody can do away dependency on modern antihypertensives and switch easily to safe herbals.

In Nov 2015 I have undergone angioplasty with 2 stents and prescribed with medicines such as storvas, nitrocontin, plavix, cardace, etc. And advised to go for another angio for one more block. Except at the time of overstrain, otherwise works normal everyday. Recently gone for checkup and except treadmill all other tests like ECG, Echo, Blood etc. Are normal. Is it necessary to for going for another angio or is there any additional medicine that can reduce the block. Pls advise. Tks.

You have symptoms only when you overstrain and difficulty in doing tmt test looks like some block has developed again you can try conservative treatment like mild exercises, yoga, eating seasonal vegetables and fruits, less stress, less or no exposure to pollution, inhaling fresh oxygen through green plants in home, keeping a disciplined lifestyle all of these collectively manage to open up collateral blood vessels of heart which were lying low and unopened, collatetals start functioning and it's as good as nature doing a bypass surgery do observe and take care of nutrition, exercise and other factors.

What Is Cardiomyopathy?

MD, DM - Cardiology, MBBS Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery, Fellowship in Interventional Cardiology
Cardiologist, Surat
What Is Cardiomyopathy?

Our heart is basically a muscle. So when this muscle weakens the heart is unable to do its function i.e., to pump blood throughout our body and keep us alive.

The heart muscle gets progressively weak due to a disease called cardiomyopathy.

There are different types of cardiomyopathy caused by different causes. Untreated cardiomyopathy can lead to heart failure or early death. Treatment can’t cure the condition but can give you extra healthy years of life and prevent serious complications.

Cardiomyopathy has 4 main types, they are:

  1. Dilated Cardiomyopathy: This is the most common form and its principal cause is that your heart muscle becomes too weak to pump blood. The heart muscles stretch and become thinner in this case leading to the four chambers of the heart to expand causing a pathology called an enlarged heart.

  2. Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy: This happens due to genetics. It occurs when the walls of your heart thicken and prevent the flow of blood through this natural pump.

  3. Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Dysplasia: This is a rare form of cardiomyopathy. It causes sudden deaths of athletes and is caused when fat and fibrous tissues replace muscle in the right ventricle of the heart.

  4. Restrictive Cardiomyopathy: This is the least common form of the disease. The cause is the stiffening of the ventricles, the part of the blood which receives blood. When these stiffen, the heart doesn’t get enough blood to oxygenate. Scarring of the heart due to heart disease and a heart transplant operation can be a cause of this stiffening.

  5. Ischemic Cardiomyopathy: Ischemic cardiomyopathy is caused due to coronary artery disease which causes blood vessels supplying blood to the heart to become narrow. The heart doesn’t get enough oxygen and a person can die due to a heart attack.

  6. Other types of cardiomyopathy are grouped into this category and can include:

    • Left ventricular noncompaction happens when the left ventricle has trabeculations, projections of muscle inside the ventricle.

    • Peripartum cardiomyopathy, another form of the disease can occur during or after pregnancy. This is a form of dilated cardiomyopathy and can be fatal. There’s no documented cause.

    • Alcoholic cardiomyopathy is caused due to alcoholism causing an enlargement of the heart.

    • Takotsubo cardiomyopathy, or broken heart syndrome, happens when extreme stress leads to heart muscle failure. Though rare, this condition is more common in post-menopausal women.

Treatment

Doctors will decide the treatment after finding out the extent of damage due to cardiomyopathy.

Few people will not require treatment till symptoms like chest pain, dizziness, shortness of breath and edema appear.

Others whose life is affected due to symptoms are treated with lifestyle changes and medicines. The bad news is that cardiomyopathy can’t be cured but can only be managed and controlled by doing the following:

  1. Heart-healthy lifestyle changes are key. You will be advised to maintain a healthy weight, eat a modified diet, get enough sleep, manage stress, and quit smoking.

  2. Exercise is also crucial to keep the heart healthy and maintain a healthy weight through regular bouts of low-intensity exercise.

  3. Medications for high blood pressure will be prescribed to prevent water retention, keep the heart beating normally, prevent blood clots and reduce inflammation.

  4. Pacemakers and defibrillators can be implanted.

  5. Surgery like heart transplant can be done as a last resort.

I recently had a heart attack and doctor has implanted a stent in coronary artery. Recently I went to check my lipid profile where the HDL level were 33 only, which is less as per the desired rate. Can pls suggest how to increase the HDL.

Regular exercises convert LDL the bad cholesterol in to HDL the good cholesterol. A low fat diet but rich in vitamin Folic acid helps in doing the same so eat healthy diet and do regular exercises. Your HDL shoul then improve to above 40 mg to 50 mgs.

So stop worrying about your health. You are so young, unlikely to get heart problem at this age. For preventing heart trouble there is a scientific way. Please discuss on phone if you require specific instructions.

Some Drs switch to eritel H alternate days and telmisartan with amlodipine combination alternate days. Single daily dose. This treatment takes one month to have effect and does not lower sodium potassium.
