Hello this is Dr. Chhavi Bansal and I am practicing Homeopathy at Homeosure-Home of Homeopathy and Wellness, Pritampura. Today I’ll be discussing about Hypertension which is the most common emerging lifestyle disorder these days. Hypertension is defines as elevation of blood pressure. Blood pressure is the pressure of flowing blood on the inner walls of the blood vessels and it depends on various factors like the pumping force of the heart, the resistance of the blood vessels and the amount of blood flowing through the vessels. As I have previously told that it is a lifestyle disorder, its development has been attributed to various lifestyle changes like poor diet, lack of exercise, lack of sleep, poor sleeping habits, work stress, mental stress.
It is often termed as the ‘silent killer’ because in many of the cases its symptoms do not manifest in the beginning of the cases and usually manifests itself with complications. Also many people do not give importance to hypertension until and unless they develop complications. Hypertension can be of two types: primary or essential and secondary hypertension depending on the causes of hypertension. And in majority of the cases, almost 90-95% cases there is no underline cause to hypertension and this is termed as Primary or Essential Hypertension.
Secondary Hypertension is the one where there is some kind of underlining medical condition which needs to be treated there. Now coming to the risk factors of hypertension, these factors can be modifiable and non-modifiable. The non-modifiable factor includes: Age like it is more common in later ages, Race because it is more common in African Americans and Genetic, because hypertension has been found running in families. The Modifiable risk factors are obesity, smoking, much intake of alcohol, caffeine, fatty food, higer level of cholesterol, high sodium diet, low potassium diet, prolonged stress or prolonged use of OCPs.
Now what is the harm from Hypertension? Prolonged hypertension can create a lot many complications: it can damage your eyes it can damage your kidneys, it can damage your heart and lead you to lot of diseases which can create loss of vision, kidney, heart diseases and stroke.
Now coming to the prevention or treatment of hypertension, as been previously told that there are various risk factors which make you prone to develop hypertension. So prevention is the best treatment of hypertension, if the risk factors are controlled then it will definitely control your hypertension or at least delay it. So the best prevention would be to have a healthy lifestyle which includes cutting down your alcohol and caffeine intake, quit smoking and maintaining your weight, adding physical activities to your routine daily, decreasing your sodium intake and increasing your potassium intake.
Homeopathy has wonderful results in delaying Hypertension and controlling Hypertension.
