Hello sir, I am 19 years old boy suffering from cough and heart pain from 3-4 months. please tell me what should i do?
Hello sir/madam. My grandfather is 83 years old. He is a heart patient and has high b. P. Problem too. He has suffered 2 heart attacks till now. So the problem is that almost a week ago, his nose was bleeding and blood pressure was also increased(170-180 mm hg). The local doctor opinioned that the bleeding was only due to high b. P. The bleeding continued for a few days and stopped. Then again started after some days. Now, it has stopped completely. The reason for high b. P. Is stress due some family problems. I want to ask that is this a signal of something dangerous in the future? what should I do? please help.

According to statistics put forward by the world health organization, high blood pressure affects about 600 million people all over the world and causes about 5 million premature deaths every year.
High blood pressure, also known as hypertension, is many times called the silent killer as it doesn't reveal any visible damage. But it does cause significant damage to the heart, brain, eyes and kidneys.
What are the causes of hypertension?
Certain factors cause your arteries to have consistently high levels of blood pressure and based on these factors your hypertension gets classified into the following:
- Primary hypertension: if the condition doesn't have an identifiable cause, it is known as primary hypertension. This form of high blood pressure develops slowly but surely over many years.
Secondary hypertension: this type of hypertension is characterized by identifiable causes that can be corrected with treatment. About 5-10% of cases in the world are secondary in nature. It is usually caused by an underlying problem and tends to appear all of a sudden.
Symptoms of very high blood pressure-
If your blood pressure is extremely high, there may be certain symptoms to look out for including:
- Severe headache
- Fatigue or confusion
- Vision problems
- Chest pain
- Difficulty breathing
- Irregular heartbeat
- Blood in the urine
- Pounding in your chest, neck or ears
Hypertension risk factors--
Although the exact cause of hypertension (high blood pressure) is unknown, there are several factors and conditions that may increase risk. These are:
- Overweight and obesity
- Little or no exercise
- Too much salt in the diet
- Raised cholesterol levels in blood
- Drinking too much alcohol
- Ethnic background (black person of African or Caribbean descent or of South Asian descent)
- History of high blood pressure in the family
Role of homeopathy in treating high blood pressure
Apart from conventional forms of medicine, homeopathy is also considered to be an effective treatment of high blood pressure. The treatment is tailor-made to your needs as it takes into consideration your external and internal environments. This is because the experiences that you may have and the characteristics of the disease that you display are not the same as the other affected person. It works by viewing your disease as a disturbance that affects your entire body and not just a specific body part.
It not only cures blood pressure but also the reason for high blood pressure so that it does not increase again when your mind or body faces stress.
Conclusion: Apart from medication to reduce stress one should go for meditation to lower down BP.
