To control or maintain BP normal there are some instructions are given below: •Do not take salt in high amount or try to avoid it because high sodium level increase BP. • Eat less amount of pickle and fast food, fast food contain high sodium. • Avoid drinking alcohol and smoking. • Take less amount of coffee and tea both increase BP. • Drink 8 to 10 glass of water daily • Do exercise daily, running and long walk. • Take 6 to 8 hrs of sleep daily. Do not take too much stress. • Do long breathing pranayams daily for 10 - 15 minutes. It will reduce your stress level in your body. • Avoid taking too much fat foods such as butter, cheese, ghee. • Eat healthy diet such as green leafy vegetables, fruits. Eat an apple daily. You can take Mukta Vati Of Divya Pharmacy of Baba Ramdev one tablet daily but only under the guidance of Ayurveda Doctor.

You are very young with your whole life ahead. Make friends, go visit social gatherings, start a good hobby that will help you meet new people and mix with others who have same interests like yourself. Doing some exercise, even walking, will help in removing the body toxins that cause fatigue and depression. If you are able to, join some sport of your choice. Try to make it group activity. In ayurved, un-necessary Vaata cases depression and also disturbs BP. Please try this. Take castor oil (abut 35 to 50 ml). It will flush your stomach and reduce the Vaata burden in the whole body. Take care that you do not get dehydrated when you have to run to the bathroom at least 3 to 6 times. It may seem difficult, but this really helps. When the Vaata disturbance reduces, you will feel fresh, in mind and body. Stay positive. Nature is beautiful. Keep finding reasons to see the wonderful things around you. Feel thankful for all the good moments in life.

Review after a couple of months will show his progress. A perfusion scan can tell us whether he will benefit from surgery. But we have to let him recover from the attack for some time first. Please share the reports of the cardiologist when you go for the next review.

High Blood Pressure and Sex

Graduate in Ayurvedic Medicine and Surgery ( GAMS )
Sexologist, Delhi
High Blood Pressure and Sex

High blood pressure is a condition in which the pressure of the blood against the artery wall is high enough to cause health problems, including heart disease. No symptoms may be noticed in a person for years but the damage to the blood vessels and to your heart continues. High blood pressure can have an impact on your sex life. Although sexual activity does not lead to any possible threats to your health but high blood pressure can affect the pleasure you would have otherwise derived from sex.

In Men

High blood pressure leads to the wearing out of the lining of blood vessels and causes arteries to narrow and harden that decreases the blood flow. This results in decreased blood flow to the penis. In case of some men, this decreased blood flow makes it difficult for them to achieve and maintain an erection. This problem is called erectile dysfunction.

High blood pressure may also interfere with ejaculation and be a cause for low libido. The medications that are prescribed for treating high blood pressure may lead to this condition.

In Women

Just as in the case of men, high blood pressure results in the decreased flow of blood to the vagina in case of women. This may cause problems like low libido, vaginal dryness, or complexities in achieving orgasm. Sexual dysfunction in women results in stress, anxiety and even relationship issues.

Hi. The best. It's good that you are taking your BP medicines regularly. Taking medicines regularly and controlling your BP will give you great benefit in long time.

Doctor I am having chest pain in my heart since the past few weeks. Please advice me with some medicine. Thank you.
Chest pain until otherwise proved should be treated for heart disease only. So see a good doctor as early as possible. Once heart is ruled out, then you can think of other causes. Other causes could be acidity, rib joint pain, muscular pain gas etc.
