I want to know about the primary tips of high blood pressure because I have a problem.
If you confirmed have high BP, then you may have been prescribed medication to control same. Few tips to help you: Eat more vegetables and fruit. Stop packaged foods as they have hidden salts, preservatives that harm. Make sure you get adequate exercise and rest. Yogasana will help regulate metabolism and even bring BP back to normal. Rest in a way that you wake fresh and happy in mind. Make sure you hydrate properly. Not drink 2 liters in the morning, but one glass every 60 to 90 mins so your body is evenly hydrated. Stay away from situations that will disturb you. Learn acupressure as a 'self help' modality. Stay positive and happy. At your age, it is possible to ring BP under control and not be drug dependent. This of-course has to be followed life long. Regards.

Dear sir,
Is that true that we should have to drink water after bath to maintain Blood pressure.
Is that true?
Dear, it is a myth. Bathing itself lowers down the blood pressure and relax the body. So you do not need to drink water after bath to maintain blood pressure.

I want know information about heart attacks. What is the symptoms to find out in earlier stages.
Hi. Heart attack in medical terms is myocardial infarction (mi). Which means a permanent damage to heart muscles. Heart muscles need oxygen rich blood to function. This is done by the blood vessels which supply the heart called coronary arteries. When these blood vessels get blocked it results in loss of blood supply to heart muscles. Resulting in heart attack. During an attack. Persons feels giddy, sweats, chest pain is severe which can be felt in that left shoulder, back, jaws etc, vomitting and fluctuating blood pressure (high or low). It can present differently too. But the above are common symptoms. Thank you.

Rather than taking medicines for increasement of chest. What shall be done. Rather than medicines.

Having trouble sleeping? Below are 10 of the most common reasons why with suggestions on how to correct them. 1. Your room isn’t dark enough. Ideally, your bedroom shouldn’t have any lights on, especially light emitted from a TV or any electronic device. When your eyes are exposed to light during the night, your brain is tricked into thinking it’s time to wake up and reduces the production of melatonin, a hormone released by your pineal gland that causes sleepiness and lowers body temperature. Light emitted by electronic devices is especially troublesome because it mimics sunlight. 2. Exercising too late. If you exercise within three hours of trying to sleep, you’ll overstimulate your metabolism and raise your heart rate causing restlessness and frequent awakenings throughout the night. Try to exercise in the morning or no later than mid to late afternoon, which will result in sounder sleep. 3. Drinking alcohol too late. We tend to think of alcohol as a sleep inducer, but it actually interferes with REM sleep, causing you to feel more tired the next morning. Granted, you may feel sleepy after you drink it, but that’s a short-term effect. Here’s a great video at WebMD about alcohol and sleep. 4. Room temperature too warm. Your body and brain wants to cool down when you sleep, but if your room is too warm you’ll thwart the cool-down process. Having a fan in your room is a good idea because it will keep you cool and produce a consistent level of white noise that will help you fall asleep. Just don’t get too cold, because that will disrupt sleep as well. (You can also try cooling your brain.) 5. Caffeine still in your system. The average half-life of caffeine is 5 hours, which means that you still have one-quarter of the first dose of caffeine rolling around in your system 10 hours after you drink it. Most of us drink more than one cup of coffee, and many of us drink it late in the day. If you’re going to drink coffee, drink it early. 6. Clockwatching. Though it’s hard not to do, don’t look at your clock when you wake up during the night. In fact, it’s best to turn it around so it’s not facing you. When you habitually clockwatch, you’re training your circadian rhythms the wrong way, and before long you’ll find yourself waking up at exactly 3: 15 every night. 7. Getting up to watch TV until you’re sleepy. This is a bad idea for a few reasons. First, watching TV stimulates brain activity, which is the exact opposite of what you want to happen if your goal is to sleep soundly. Second, the light emitted from the TV is telling your brain to wake up (see #1 above). 8. Trying to problem-solve in the middle of the night. All of us wake up at times during the night, and the first thing that pops into our heads is a big problem we’re worried about. The best thing you can do is stop yourself from going there and redirect your thoughts to something less stressful. If you get caught up on the worry treadmill, you’ll stay awake much longer. 9. Eating protein too close to bedtime. Protein requires a lot of energy to digest, and that keeps your digestive system churning away while you’re trying to sleep — bad combination. Better to have a light carbohydrate snack. 10. Smoking before bedtime. Smokers equate smoking with relaxing, but that’s a neurochemical trick. In truth, nicotine is a stimulant. When you smoke before trying to sleep, you can expect to wake up several times throughout the night; much as you would if you drank a cup of coffee. All you can fix them.

Integrative Treatment for Heart Health, Blockages and Circulation

Integrative or mind-body treatments include diet, nutrition, lifestyle modifications, counselling for mental and emotional stability, environment health and positive faith building. Integrative therapies have become very popular and sort after. A lot of research is being done to evaluate the results of drugless therapies and traditional systems of healing around the world.

As a doctor, therapist and counsellor, we realized that the problems faced by patients range from the most common 'what to eat and what not to do' to 'why did this happen to me', or 'how does it cost so much' and most important, overcoming the fear and pain associated with diseases. Few patients want to challenge a line of treatment, but do not have the courage to ask; and many will meekly follow the doctor s advice. Things go wrong when patients are forced to follow some relatives or friends advice to take medicines that actually do them more harm than help.

It s always better to take professional advice.

Heart health also benefits from integrative treatments that include nutritional support from customized diet, customized exercises, mindful meditation, various self healing techniques like yogasana, acupressure, and powerful detoxification. Natural, herbal and Ayurvedic medication have proved very effective.

Medical research has indicated, blockages that cause heart attack, stroke or deep vein thrombosis begin 80% times with wear-tear of inner lining of blood vessel. This injury gets covered with a plaque deposit that is formed initially as a self protection mechanism. This plaque deposit has a large volume of LDL cholesterol. So, wrongly, LDL cholesterol is termed as Bad, whereas, it actually deposits to fight the disease (oxdative free radicals) from doing more harm. Swelling and rupture of this plaque causes blockage of blood vessel and blood flow is hampered in smaller vessels away from the site of rupture. When this happens in delicate organs like the heart, damage of heart muscles take place (causing heart attack of heart failure) or when in blood vessels supplying nutrition to brain, causing stroke and paralysis.

Research also confirms that unless the formation of these plaques is not retarded or reversed, new blockages keep occurring and procedures like angioplasty or bypass fail after a short time duration. This condition is called Restenosis. This can happen in same blockage area, on the stent or in new blood vessels.

World Health Organisation has taken note of this fact and all over the world, Integrative treatment approach is gaining importance and results have also encouraged doctors and patients.

Clinical trials conducted have shown that Non invasive, holistic, integrative approach is able to retard blockages, reduce the formation of blockages and improve blood circulation all over the body while supporting different organ functions. These therapy options can be safely taken with allopathy, before heart attack, after attack, after angioplasty, stent or CABG procedures. We recommend high risk persons to take these as precaution as well.

At present award winning, non invasive, clinically proved treatment protocol is available and is benefiting thousands of patients.

1.Mix 1 gm of garlic paste with a glass of buttermilk. Drink this buttermilk twice a day. 2.Mix 1 teaspoon of onion juice with an equal amount of honey. Take once a day for 1 week. Upon noticing improvement, continue for several more days. 3.Avoid meat, eggs, table salt, pickles, tea and coffee. 4.Avoid smoking as it increases heart rate. 5. Increase use of garlic, lemon, parsley, Indian gooseberry (amla), watermelon, grapefruit, skim milk and cottage cheese. Regular exercise is one of the best ways to lower blood pressure; brisk walking, jogging, swimming and athletics are good options. Laughter is the best medicine, as it relieves stress and anxiety, which are the main causes of high blood pressure in today’s lifestyle.
