Hi, once allopathic medicines r administered, it should b continue without enteruption. However, if you so desire to switch over to homoeopathy, take the following medicines, without breaking the course you r taking at present. It will be withdrawn, gradually. Both medicines will continue, simulteneously, taking a gap of an hr homoeo-care*: @ rauwolfia q @ crategus ox q @ avena sat q @ arjuna q mix all the medicines together, take 10 drops of d mixture with 1/4 cup of water, thrice/ day. # go for a walk in the morning for an hr. # take plenty of water # sit for meditation for 30 mnts # avoid, fried, junk food, ghee, butter etc. # take, apple, orange, garlic, green leafy veg. # skimmed milk is preferable # monitor your bp weekly. # report after 15 days.

Dear Lybrateuser, -To improve your condition do stop smoking & drinking as it raises BP & also the heart rate -do light exercises to start with as your system may not be able to adapt to the sudden strenuous exercises in the gym & may cause damage, start with a walk only on the treadmill, do warm up before the actual exercise & also do cooling down for 5-10 min -if still no improvement then get your BP checked up at rest as well as during exercise as if you have high bp then vigourous execise will put more strain on the heart & complete system which is damaging for it.

I had high triglycerides ,others valve in lipid profile are normal and intake lipagyln at morning.
Hi, Continue to take the medicines to reduce the triglycerides levels in the blood. Repeat the lipid profile after 3 months. Avoid all fried food and sweets, coconut gratings or copra. Use rice bran oil or olive oil for cooking and use less oil food preparations. Walk everyday for 1 hour and perform some yogic asanas after being trained by a good yoga teacher.
