Dear lybrate-user, You may continue your breathing exercise daily. It will give you relief. As you have mentioned about your hand and chest ps in, it seems these are gastric pain. Take care of your diet. You may also call back with more symtoms for homeo treatment.

I have low blood pressure. I used to eat medicine everyday but it does not Work. What should I do.

BAMS
Ayurveda, Ambala
For Recovering from low BP follow these best methods: • Anaemia is a cause of low BP so check your hemoglobin level (Hb) if this is low so eat green leafy vegetables, beetroot and fruits like pomegranate. • Eat an apple daily it maintain your BP normal. • Take your meal daily do not skip meal. • Drink 8 - 9 glass of water daily. Hydrate your body well with drinking proper amount of water because dehydration is also cause fall of BP. • When you feel that your BP is low then take 2 teaspoons of Glucon D and add a pinch of salt mix it in one glass of water and drink it. You can repeat it after 2 hours. This will maintain electrolyte balance and your BP. You can drink a cup of tea. • Drink a glass of milk daily. It maintain your stamina. • Take a multivitamin capsule daily for 15 days. • Eat a teaspoon of gulkand daily and maintain your blood sugar level. • Do long breathing pranayams daily and do not take stress.

Psychotherapy helps a lot in depression. You should strengthen your mind to get out from this situation and also to get rid off medication. Do meditation daily for mental strength. Taking stress will not solve your problem, but will affect your health. Take homeopathic medicine brynoia 30, 4 dose daily and kali phos 6x, 4 pills 4 times daily.

Should my father start bp tablet. His daily bp reading is 150/100 .nd his age is 50 years.
Yes, he must start medications. Hypertension is when your blood pressure is above 140/90, and is considered severe if the pressure is above 180/120.High blood pressure often has no symptoms. Over time, if untreated, it can cause health conditions, such as heart disease and stroke.Eating a healthier diet with less salt, exercising regularly and taking medications can help lower blood pressure.
