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.

Reasons For High Blood Pressure - उच्च रक्तचाप के कारण

MBBS, M.Sc - Dietitics / Nutrition
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Delhi
Reasons For High Blood Pressure - उच्च रक्तचाप के कारण

रक्त, आर्टरीस की दीवारों पर जो बल डालता है, उससे ब्लड प्रेशर कहते हैं। इस बल की शम्मता, दिल के रक्त छोड़ने के प्रेशर और रक्त वाहिकाओं द्वारा लगाए गए प्रतिरोध पे निर्भर करती है। उच्च रक्तचाप, जिसे हाइपरटेंशन भी कहते हैं, तब होता है जब यह बल बहुत अधिक हो जाता है। 
रक्तचाप रीडिंग दो नंबरों में दिया जाता है। पहला, सिस्टल रक्तचाप, जो हृदय अनुबंध के कारण धमनियों में दबाव है। दूसरा डायस्टोलिक रक्तचाप, जो दिल के वापस विस्तार के कारण धमनियों में दबाव है। वयस्कों के लिए सिस्टोलिक दबाव 120 एमएमएचजी के नीचे और डायस्टोलिक दबाव 80 एमएमएचजी के नीचे, सामान्य रक्तचाप होता है। जब आप उत्साहित होते हैं या घबराते हैं, तो रक्त के दबाव में परिवर्तन सामान्य होता है। हालांकि, गतिविधि बंद हो जाने पर, आपका ब्लड प्रेशर आपकी सामान्य बेसलाइन रेंज में वापस आ जाता है। 
रक्तचाप सामान्य रूप से उम्र और शरीर के आकार के साथ बढ़ जाता है। संकीर्ण धमनियां प्रतिरोध को बढ़ाती हैं, जो रक्तचाप में वृद्धि का कारण बनता है। जब सिस्टोलिक दबाव 120 - 139 के बीच हो या डायस्टोलिक दबाव 80 - 89 के बीच हो, तो उस स्थिति को प्रीहाइपरटेंशन। 140/90 एमएमएचजी या उससे ऊपर का रक्तचाप उच्च माना जाता है, यानी के, यदि आपके सिस्टोलिक दबाव 140 से अधिक या डायस्टॉलिक दबाव 90 से ऊपर है। 
 

उच्च रक्तचाप के कारण
1. उम्र:

उम्र के साथ उच्च रक्तचाप का खतरा बढ़ जाता है। जैसे जैसे हम उम्र में बढ़ते है, हमारा रक्तचाप स्वाभाविक रूप से बढ़ जाता है। वास्तव में, 50 से 60 वर्ष से अधिक आयु के लोगों को हृदय रोगों का अधिक खतरा होता है। 
2. जेनेटिक:
कुछ लोग जेनेटिकली उच्च रक्तचाप के लिए अधिक संवेदनशील होते हैं। यह जीन म्यूटेशन या जेनेटिक असामान्यताओं से हो सकता है।
3. व्यायाम की कमी और पुअर डाइट:
उच्च रक्तचाप अक्सर एक लंबे समय तक गतिहीन जीवन शैली के कारण होता है। व्यायाम की कमी, अतिरिक्त आहार के लवण का सेवन मोटापे का कारण बनता है और उच्च रक्तचाप का खतरा बढ़ा देता है। सोडियम संवेदनशीलता के अलावा, उच्च रक्तचाप और हृदय की स्थितियां भी, चीनी और वसा से भरी हुई आहार से जुड़ी हुई है।
4. शराब, ड्रग्स और धूम्रपान:
अत्यधिक मात्रा में शराब पीना या मनोरंजक दवाओं जैसे कोकीन, मेथ आदि का उपयोग करना धमनियों पर तनाव डाल सकता है और हृदय को नुकसान पहुंचा सकता है। धूम्रपान संकीर्ण धमनियों का कारण बनता है, जिसके कारण दिल को अधिक काम करना पड़ता है। यह भी दिल के दौरे और हृदय रोगों के जोखिम को बढ़ा सकता है।
5. हार्मोनल स्थितियां:
एल्दोस्टरोनिस्म, एक एल्दोस्टरोनिस्म, एक हार्मोन विकार जो पोटेशियम और सोडियम स्तरों के बीच असंतुलन पैदा करता है, उच्च रक्तचाप का एक सामान्य कारण है। मेनोपॉज के लिए हार्मोन थेरेपी भी रक्तचाप में वृद्धि का कारण हो सकती है। 
6. स्लीप एप्निया:
स्लीप एपनिया एक ऐसा विकार है जो नींद के दौरान सांस को रोकने या बहुत उथले बनने का कारण बनता है। इससे ऑक्सीजन का स्तर कम हो सकता है और कार्डियोवास्कुलर सिस्टम पर तनाव बढ़ सकता है।
7. गुर्दे की बीमारियां:
उच्च रक्तचाप का सबसे आम कारणों मे से एक गुर्दे की बीमारी है। गुर्दे सामान्य रूप से, सोडियम और पानी को बनाए रख कर और पोटेशियम निकल कर, शरीर के नमक संतुलन को विनियमित करते हैं। इसमें असंतुलन खून की मात्रा बढ़ा सकता है, जिससे उच्च रक्तचाप पैदा हो सकता है।

Dear lybrate-user, it is good that you wants stop smoking, we are destroying our health by smoking normal human takes oxygen into lungs 12 -15 times per minute (12 - 15 breaths) lungs mixes oxygen in blood and it purifies our blood, by smoking we are mixing not only oxygen adding and mixing bad elements like nicotine etc. In oxygen, that spoils our blood and our body all organs like lungs, heart, kidney etc. In our body. How to quit: by willingness and willpower" where there is a will there is a way" reduce one by one day by day.

Hello sir Suddenly I have pain in my chest or in other parts of my midst body for 10-50 seconds in 2-3 days So please tell me I have a normal problem or a serious problem.

LCPS, BAM&S
General Physician, Pune
There is a rule in medicine that any chest pain should be labelled as heart trouble until proved otherwise. So subject yourself to all tests related to heart till it is proved that you don't have heart disease. Other causes could be hyperactivity, gas, liver trouble, bronchitis etc. But leave that decision to doctors. But don't waste time.
