Dear, it is mentioned on the cigarettes box that smoking is injurious to health and it is not joking. Smoking is really very injurious for lungs, heart, stomach, eyes and many more organs. There are some products for withdrawal from this habit but they can only help when you are determined for that.

At your age menopause is very likely what is producing all those symptoms. Bp will vary and I wouldn' t worry about it. You will very likely need medication to ease the rigors of menopause and medication with homeopathy will ensure a hassle free transition. Do let me know what you decide. Dr. J tikari

Instead of moping around get yourself busy. Go for long trip, or dig out an old hobby or find your old novels. Avoid company of the common friends especially if they are likely to talk about the same episode or jeer at you. Best is to take up a gym membership or target an event like a 10 km run or a game of tennis. Remember change is a part of life.

Homoeopathy can be beneficial for your blockage of your valve, although if you are taking allopathic medicines too, you must continue with it. Along with it take crategus q and terminalia arjuna q, 10 drops from each in 1/4 cup of water twice daily for 1 month.

Take stairs instead of lift & walk instead of hiring transport. Avoid junk/ processed/ packaged/ sugary/ fired foods, soft & hard drinks, refined carbs (sugar, potato, white rice, sabudana, jaggery, honey, noodles, white bread, biscuit, cake).

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 . tab. zyloric 100 mg once a day for uric acid.

Hi, I am a 28 years old, male, obese person. In 22 years of age, I had a problem started, high bp. Doctor recomment me seloken xl 50 mg + amcard 5 twice daily. Few years back, due to high cost of medicine, I started using generic medicine which is metoprolol 50 mg (for seloken xl 50 mg) + amlodipine 5 mg (for amcard 5). Are these generic medicines fine for me? other than this I started taking patanjali ayurvedic medicine divya mukta vati also.

What kind of food items should I have to keep my low blood pressure in control.

MD - Internal Medicine, MBBS

Potassium, magnesium, and fiber, on the other hand, may help control blood pressure. Fruits and vegetables are high in potassium, magnesium, and fiber, and they’re low in sodium. Stick to whole fruits and veggies. Juice is less helpful, because the fiber is removed. Also, nuts, seeds, legumes, lean meats, and poultry are good sources of magnesium. To increase the amounts of natural potassium, magnesium, and fiber you take in, select from the following: apples apricots bananas beet greens broccoli carrots collards green beans dates grapes green peas kale lima beans mangoes melons oranges peaches pineapples potatoes raisins spinach squash strawberries sweet potatoes tangerines tomatoes tuna yogurt (fat-free)
