Hello sir, I am 59 year old male have undergone angioplasty twice once in 2008 n the other one month back. Is there any medicine in Ayurveda which can clear the blocks, as the old 2008 one is now blocked by 50%

50% block may not be corrected but you can give a chance collateral blood vesselsto open up,so far these lying in heart but doing nothing and there are plenty of collateral blood vessels. it is equated to nature doing a bypass surgery giving its own vessels to circulate more blood to the heart by its own vessels instead of grafted vessels. some people do claim about opening up of the blocked vessels by alternate therapies but there are no proofs, no studies carried so far. if sugar levels are controlled you can have all of these or any of these lemon juice plus spoon of honey with warm water on empty stomach every morning & rest of the day. apple cider vinegar diluted with water/juice. pomegranade fruit or juice or dry seeds boiled in water ,a concoction made and a cup taken every day. exercise like walkkng does open up vessels of entire body. massage with machine or with oil does improve blood circulation including heart. better is blood circulation ,more vessels lying low get a chance to open up. good luck.

Thanks for the information. Some loss of memory is accetable when we age. Daily brisk walking, meditation and deep breathing exercises are very useful for good functioning of brain. You can also solve some puzzles that come in newspapers or magazines. Playing chess with a friend is a helpful strategy. Keeping a calendar near your bedside with important events marked is helpful. You can also start maintaing diary and write notes of all your activity.

How do I control diabetes and high blood pressure? I am a heart patient with severe cholesterol. please help me?

How do I control diabetes and high blood pressure?  I am a heart patient with severe cholesterol. please help me?
Hi, diabetics often have high bp too unless there is any other underlying cause. First and foremost, your high bp needs to be brought under control. Make sure that you meet your diabetologist/ cardiologist in person asap, so that your high bp/ sugar/ cholesterol levels are brought down with no further delay. He/ she may appropriately advise further diagnostics, if any, and may also require referring you to other specialists including a nephrologist consultation to check upon your kidneys health. Simultaneously, you will have to check your dietary habits, especially cut down on salt, and other high calorie greasy/ oily & fatty foods. Watermelon helps lower bp. Ensure that you streamline your lifestyle, with adequate room for relaxation and de-stressing. Should you be working, you need to see how you can streamline your occupational aspect as well to reduce stress at work. This shall systemically help you keep your bp in control. Being a diabetic, the need to streamline your diet & lifestyle and relaxation/ de-stressing yourself, cannot be under-emphasized. You must ensure consumption of whole grain cereals, fresh milk, fibrous fruits like apples and leafy greens. Especially, cucumber, jamun, bitter gourd, onions, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, lemon etc are beneficial in diabetes. Banana and other high calorie fruits be best avoided. You should take water plentily and exercise (light) for at least 30 - 45 mins daily. Remember walking is the best and safest exercise unless you have other constraints with respect to your health that prohibit you from doing so. Most of the guidelines as mentioned above for diabetes and bp shall help control your cholesterol levels too. Coriander water is known to help bring down cholesterol levels. Additionally, vegetable oils with pufa, amla, cayenne, green tea, fenugreek (methi), isabgol, flaxseed et al help bring down cholesterol levels too. Daily yogasanas, pranayams & meditation also help keep fit from all angles.

There is evidence that certain dietary supplements and vitamins can help with certain types of pain. Fish oil is often used to reduce pain associated with swelling. Topical capsaicin, derived from chili peppers, may help with arthritis, diabetic nerve pain, and other conditions. There's evidence that glucosamine can help relieve moderate to severe pain from osteoarthritis in the knee. Do reply back for private consultation. And detailed treatment plan.

Right sided inspirational pain may be pleural pain. Pleura is the covering of lungs, when due to some reason it gets stuck to the lung tissue it gives pain. If you are a smoker, please quit. Steam inhalations 4 to 5 times a day with some pain killer and bronchdialater will help. Hope satisfied. Regards.

Hi, Take Rauvolfia 1x, 2 tabs daily morning empty stomach and 1 tab in the evening. Drink plenty of liquids and cut down your fat, salt and sugar intake. go for a morning walk daily at least for 30 minute. Take a sound sleep and try to avoid anger. Home remedies to Control high BP:-1. Bananas are one fruit that people with high blood pressure can eat regularly to control it. Bananas are a rich source of potassium, which lessens the effect of sodium.So, try to eat one or two bananas daily. Along with bananas, you can try dried apricots, raisins, orange juice, spinach, baked sweet potatoes. 2. Eat one or two crushed garlic cloves daily. You can simply crush them with your hands. Crushing garlic cloves creates hydrogen sulfide, a compound that promotes good blood flow, removes gas and reduces the pressure on the heart.If you do not like eating raw garlic or if it causes a burning sensation, then take it along with a cup of milk. You can also mix five or six drops of garlic juice in four teaspoons of water and take it twice a day.

In ayurveda, Hypertension is referred to as Rakta Capa Vriddhi and it sees the vitiation of vata and pitta doshas as the main cause. 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. Take sarpgandha vati twice a day. Yogendra ras. Akik bhasm works very good in case of hypertension. Avoid salty diet. Oily food. Lower your stress. Do pranayama early morning.

Your Cholesterol is deranged. As the first line you need to start with diet and exercise precautions. And repeat your lipid profile after 4 weeks of these precautions. Quit smoking and limit alcohol intake. For diet reduce sugar and fatty, fried food from your diet and change your eating habits. Take a detailed diet consult. For exercise start with gradual brisk walking everyday and increase it to 40 mins per day. You need Vitamin D3 supplementation for your low levels.

Walking is a safe exercise but due to you being overweight, your feet are unable to take strain of extra load. Try cycling insted & swimming if facility is available or do other exercises which involve the entire body instead of just lower limbs. At 28 you should start dieting & eating healthy without being conscious about tough diet charts & making healthy eating will become a way of life, not a punishment. No sugar or sweets or bad fats through street food and burgers etc. Lots of seasonal vegetables and fruits which will give you enough minerals and vitamins to live healthy, but no juices, have fiber through these, because it is filling and does cleanse the food pipe. Drink lots of water, preferrably the home made ors variety with juice of a lemon with warm water with a pinch of salt added along with a spoon of sugar/honey. Good proteins are filling and nourashing too- boiled egg/ toned milk/ curd/ chhachh/a katori of assorted nuts for good fats & proteins/ dry roasted chane/ 2-3 dates. Apple or orange or banana as a snack but no packed foods to munch. Eat regularly & eat nourishment. No smoking or exposure to pollution. One full meal of daal-roti-chawal-sabji during evenings only for satiety only as by now your food pipe has had good nutrients, lose weight @ 5 kg only & slowly your heart beat will stabalise too.

Sleep for Healthy Heart

Good quality of sleep decreases heart rate and blood pressure thus decreasing work of heart lack of sleep keeps the heart rate and blood pressure elevated.both are linked to increased incidence of heart disease. Lack of sleep increases insulin resistance and the risk of type 2 diabetes Mellitus and also increases C-reactive protein a protein associated with inflammation.

Both diabetes and C-reactive protein are associated with higher incidence of coronary artery disease.
