Dear Mr Vinod....as human gets older the walls of blood vessels becomes less elastic and it becomes hardened..as a result it exerts more pressure on the blood flowing through the vessels.....another cause of increasing blood pressure may be atherosclerosis....atherosclerosis is caused by high cholesterol level in blood......Since your age is 56 years i would like to advise to walk for 1 hour daily.....you can try Homeopathic Mother Tincture RAWOULFIA SERP Q, 30 drops in water, thrice daily after meals......You should also check the lipid profile of your blood

My Mom suffered a minor Stroke two months back. After that she was treated and as per Doctors advice she is good and fine. Doctors said the main reason was of Hypertension. CT scan test was been done and various tests been done whatever Doctors decided to do. Now the problem is that she feels a kind of heaviness and nerves stretchiness and a bit of pain in her left side till her knee portion. We discuss the matter with the Doctors and they said that it is a stroke effect and it will heal naturally by itself. I approach to Neurologist and discuss the matter and the Neurologist said the same thing as the Doctors said. As per Doctors advice she needs to take B. P medicine and Sugar medicine for life long. Now my question is that it's been a more than two months she had minor stroke but she still feels that kind of heaviness and nerves stretchiness sometimes pain in her left part of her body. Is this true as per Doctors advice she will be fine and it will get healed naturally. Please advice your suggestions to what is next to be done.

Heaviness and nerve stretch in left thigh could be due to sciatica. Patient lie on her back and tell her to lift her right leg up to 90 degree. Then lift her left leg up to 90 degree. In sciatica she will get pain if she lift beyond 45 degree. While standing straight normal person can bend forward and touch her own toes with her fingers. In sciatica she may not be able to touch her toes. Hard bed (with cushion), hot fomentation of lower back may help. Patient lie on her abdomen. Flex (bend) legs to touch thigh may help. Get it confirmed by surgeon and take medication as per his advice.

It is very important for you to take up some group exercise like aerobics or zumba or sport like basketball etc. This will force your mind to begin paying attention to coordinated work. Team work will help you to stop thinking your own thoughts and make you response oriented that will help you think forward. Make it a habit to be in groups and not alone. Being physically active will help regulate mind and kind of thoughts. Life is beautiful. There are more reasons to happy. If only you look at all things positively.

I've a mild high bp issue, my cholesterol is usually under control. Once in two months I'm required to take Aten 25. Typically, whenever I work out, if not always but many times, I dont feel fresh. It's not tiredness. Is it due to reduced heart function (unhealthy heart)? Please advise. Thanks.
