I am 35 year male and I am suffering from hypertension. What should I do? Please help me.
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.

Hello, Few lifestyle changes can help you in controlling and preventing the high blood pressure, even if you're taking blood pressure medication. Eat healthy foods. Consume more fruits, vegetables, whole grains, poultry, fish and low-fat dairy foods. Eat less saturated fat and trans fat. Decrease the salt in your diet. So, avoid eating processed foods, such as canned soups or frozen dinners which contains extra salt in it. Keeping a healthy weight, or losing weight if you're overweight or obese, can help you control your high blood pressure and lower your risk of related health problems. Increase physical activity which can help lowering your blood pressure, manage stress, reduce your risk of several health problems. Get indulged in regular exercising (if your doctor allows you). Limit alcohol. Even if you're healthy, alcohol can raise your blood pressure. If you choose to drink alcohol, do so in moderation. Don't smoke. Tobacco injures blood vessel walls and speeds up the process of hardening of the arteries. Reduce stress as much as possible. Practice healthy coping techniques, such as muscle relaxation, deep breathing or meditation. Getting regular physical activity and plenty of sleep can help, too. Monitor your blood pressure at home. Medication: Take Schwabe’s Essentia Aurea/ thrice daily which is a cardio-tonic which helps in maintaining blood pressure, improves muscle tone of the heart and narrowing of blood vessels.

The “iron hypothesis,” proposed by a cardiology professor at the University of Kansas, postulated that iron lost by women during menstruation helped protect them against cholesterol buildup. David G. Meyers wanted to find out if men who donated blood could obtain similar benefits. He found that men who donated blood frequently reduced their risk of heart disease by 30 percent compared to infrequent donors, according to a report published in “Transfusion” in June 2002. Meyers’ study examined the health of 3,000 men and post-menopausal women.

My LDL Cholesterol is 177 and total cholesterol is 294 and HDL is 41 what should I do.
Hi, you can make your lipid levels back to normal by following diet and physical activity. You need to include healthy food options such as whole grain cereals, pulses and legumes, fruits and vegetables, skimmed milk and milk products, lean meat, skin out chicken, egg white. Reduce your intake of red meat, egg yolk, fried/ oily foods, junk foods, alcohol and smoking of tobacco. Include fish (trout, sardines, tuna, salmon), almonds (4-5), walnuts (4-5), flax seeds (2 tsp), green tea, oats as they help you to maintain healthy lipid levels. If you don't have any type of physical activity its better to start as it will help you in reducing excess weight if any.

Hi. In your lipid profile, level of triglycerides is raised and HDL cholesterol is borderline less. As you said your weight is 78 KG, it depends on your height to decide whether you fall in normal BMI or obese group. Regular physical activity is the key for normalisation of body lipids. So starts today with either walking, jogging, running, swimming, badminton, football et cetera. Any physical activity that you are interested in. Important thing is that you should be engaged in that activity regularly for a minimum of 45 minutes. You would definitely derive benefited. You may repeat check your lipid profile after one year and see how regular exercises improve your body lipids. You should also get your blood sugar checked at least once. Take care.
