Close your eyes. Focus on your breathing 2. Place your thumbs in your ears, your index fingers above your eyebrows, and your remaining along the sides of your nose. Keep each little finger near a nostril 3. Breath in deeply through the nose. First, feel the diaphragm move down, allowing the lungs to expand and forcing the abdomen out; then feel your chest expand with your collar bones rising last. 4. Use your little fingers to partially close each nostril. Keep your lungs filled. 5. Breathe out through the nose while humming. Note that the humming sound should originate in your throat, not as a result of your partially-blocked nostrils. 6. Repeat three times.

This is for my mother who is 70 years of age. Sh is a known hypertensive since 2002 and has been on amlong 2.5mgm od, concor 5mgm bd, and minipress xl 2.5 MGM od. A few years ago some doctor put her on ecosprin 75mgm daily. Apart from that she takes calcium and multivitamin. Her bp used to always be 130 /70. But off late her bp was in the range of 140-150/76. So we consulted a physician and he made it concor with amlong 5/5mgm, and azilsartan 80 MGM once s day. With aspirin in the afternoon. Her bp is still 140-150/76. My question is is this the normal bp and I shouldn't worry about it ?ir is there some other medication that she should be on to bring the systolic to 130 range? And is aspirin actually required for her? Her echo shows concentric left ventricular hypertrophy and mild diastolic dysfunction. Her weight also is 76.8 and she hardly eats anything. Could it be due to salt retention from aspirin intake? Can I stop aspirin? Her platelets are 4.18 lakhs. Pls advice.

1) Aspirin (Ecosprin) does not cause high BP, it is given in this case for Heart attack prevention so please continue that 2) anti hypertensive medications needs to be adjusted periodically according to bP records and lab parameters for side effects. And usually not more than 2 or 3 drugs are needed. 3) you need to do these test for further assestment. KFT, ECG, STRESS ECHO, LIPID PROFILE. 4) Continue to take same BP medications but take them all early in the morning and measure BP twice daily and keep a record. 5) If Evening BP is more than 140/90 (Which is the upper limit for her age) you can give half or full tablet of amlong again in the evening according to BP. Many factors can affect blood pressure, including: 1) The amount of water and salt you have in your body 2) The condition of your kidneys, nervous system, or blood vessels 3) Your hormone levels You are more likely to be told your blood pressure is too high as you get older. This is because your blood vessels become stiffer as you age. When that happens, your blood pressure goes up. High blood pressure increases your chance of having a stroke, heart attack, heart failure, kidney disease, or early death. Get back to me with a detailed history and old / new records for a better individualized advice.

Hello, Consult the same doctor as in why did he prescribe her blood thinner. Secondly, blood thinner cannot be discontinued due to self assessment. You can not suddenly stop using it without doctors consent as that can prove fatal.

Hello. If you are not habituated to this kind of routine or when there is some internal problem in your body, it responds like this only. Management: Always keep yourself well hydrated even in between the walks. As dehydration leads to cramps and muscular spasm. Maintain daily intake of healthy food specially of fruits, green vegetables, nuts, flaxseeds which contains omega-3 fatty acids for healthy tissues, milk, milk products and eggs which are supposed to be complete food they contain protein, vitamins and minerals which are required for wear and tear. Also, take enough of rest which helps in rejuvenation of whole body! Medication: Take homoeopathic medicines - Alfaalfa Tonic and Five Phos. - both thrice daily for 4 weeks.

You need to first understand few things about blood pressure. Normal range of blood pressure is between 90/60 to 140/90, anything above or below is is abnormal. Many factors can affect blood pressure, including: 1) The amount of water and salt you have in your body 2) The condition of your kidneys, nervous system, or blood vessels 3) Your hormone levels 4) your lifestyle - smoking, drinking, exercise  Stress, less sleep, smoking, alcohol, overweight, heart, kidney problems, lack of physical exercise. All of these can cause High blood pressure. You are more likely to be told your blood pressure is too high as you get older. This is because your blood vessels become stiffer as you age. When that happens, your blood pressure goes up.  Highblood pressure increases your chance of having a stroke, heart attack, heart failure, kidney disease, or early death. So my advice to you would be 1) Keep a BP record daily for at least one week & Every time you need to measure BP twice with a gap of 15 mins rest. 2) Basic tests should be one to rule out cardiac / kidney issues & find if there is any treatable cause of High blood pressure 3) unless any recent evaluation has been done I would advice these test ECG ECHO Lipid Profile TSH KFT  Renal doppler  Get back to me with a detailed history and  old / new records For Now Keep taking the same medicines which you are taking .plus Start lifestyle changes & diet changes Emphasizes vegetables, fruits, and fat-free or low-fat dairy products. Includes whole grains, fish, poultry, beans, seeds, nuts, and vegetable oils. Limits sodium, sweets, sugary beverages, and red meats. Along with this, other lifestyle changes can help lower your blood pressure. They include staying at a healthy weight, exercising, and not smoking.

Hello, Few lifestyle changes can help you in controlling and preventing the high blood pressure, even if you're taking blood pressure medication. Eat healthy foods. Consume more fruits, vegetables, whole grains, poultry, fish and low-fat dairy foods. Eat less saturated fat and trans fat. Decrease the salt in your diet. So, avoid eating processed foods, such as canned soups or frozen dinners which contains extra salt in it. Keeping a healthy weight, or losing weight if you're overweight or obese, can help you control your high blood pressure and lower your risk of related health problems. Increase physical activity which can help lowering your blood pressure, manage stress, reduce your risk of several health problems. Get indulged in regular exercising (if your doctor allows you). Limit alcohol. Even if you're healthy, alcohol can raise your blood pressure. If you choose to drink alcohol, do so in moderation. Don't smoke. Tobacco injures blood vessel walls and speeds up the process of hardening of the arteries. Reduce stress as much as possible. Practice healthy coping techniques, such as muscle relaxation, deep breathing or meditation. Getting regular physical activity and plenty of sleep can help, too. Monitor your blood pressure at home. Medication: Take Schwabe’s Essentia Aurea/ thrice daily which is a cardio-tonic which helps in maintaining blood pressure, improves muscle tone of the heart and narrowing of blood vessels.

I don't have any knowledge about homeopathy but you can go for it. Crux of the treatment lies in physiotherapy. Do it regularly.
