How to keep blood pressure normal and what type of food and diet is required so also which exercise is suitable for bp.
In ayurveda, Hypertension is referred to as Rakta Capa Vriddhi and it sees the vitiation of vata and pitta doshas as the main cause. Mix 1 teaspoon of onion juice with an equal amount of honey. Take once a day for 1 week. Upon noticing improvement, continue for several more days. Take sarpgandha vati twice a day. Yogendra ras. Akik bhasm works very good in case of hypertension. Avoid salty diet. Oily food. Lower your stress. Do pranayama early morning.

What Causes High Cholesterol? 6 Factors That Put You at Risk

What Causes High Cholesterol? 6 Factors That Put You at Risk

Cholesterol is a vital component, which helps the body to make healthy cells. This wax like component is found in the lipid of the blood. An increased cholesterol count elevates the risk of heart diseases in a person. It thickens the vessels of the arteries resulting in less oxygen flow in the heart. This, in turn, increases the chances of a stroke. High cholesterol can happen from lifestyle habits and inheritance. It is completely treatable and preventable.

What causes high cholesterol?
The blood carries the cholesterol which is attached to the proteins. The combination of cholesterol and protein is known as the lipoprotein. Primarily there are two different kinds of cholesterol that the lipoprotein carries:

  • Low-density lipoprotein: LDL is the bad guy that carries all kinds of cholesterol present in the body. It eventually rests on the walls of the arteries, making it narrow and hard.
  • High-density lipoprotein: This is the good guy which scans the excess cholesterol and take them back to the liver.

Ideally, the body should have low LDL and high HDL. But often the reverse happens, resulting in high cholesterol and cardiac diseases. Factors such as unhealthy diet, inactivity for most of the day and obesity is responsible for the same. Even the genetic set up can play a hand in a high count of LDL in the body. There is nothing that can be done in this case except to seek medical help.

6 factors that put you at risk:

  1. Poor diet: Cholesterol levels are dramatically increased when baked products and saturated fats are consumed in an excess amount. Other high cholesterol food products include dairy products, processed fats and red meat. Refraining from this food items will drastically reduce the chances of getting high cholesterol in the body.
  2. Obesity: Obesity results from too much of fat storage in the body. It not only fatigues a person faster, but puts a person at high risk of getting cholesterol. The body mass index should be always lesser than 30 to abstain the risk of cholesterol.
  3. Waist circumference: A waist circumference of more than 40 inches in men and 35 inches in women can increase the risk of cholesterol.
  4. Diabetes: This is one of the major causes of high cholesterol. It not only damages the artery lining, but results in higher LDL and lower HDL.
  5. Less workout: Leading a life which is devoid of exercise and jogging can increase the chances of getting high cholesterol. Exercise boost HDL count in the body and mitigates the risk of low HDL.
  6. Smoking: The blood vessel walls get damaged with smoking. The blood vessels start accumulating fatty acids thereby increasing the chances of getting high cholesterol.

How to increase good cholesterol ?

Certified Diabetes Educator, Registered Dietitian (RD), PGDD, Bachelor of Unani Medicine and Surgery (B.U.M.S), General Physician
Dietitian/Nutritionist,
Even small changes to your daily habits can help you meet your good cholesterol hdl target. Don' t smoke.if you smoke, quit. Quitting smoking can increase your hdl cholesterol by up to 10 percent lose weight. extra pounds take a toll on hdl cholesterol. If you' re overweight, losing even a few pounds can improve your hdl level. For every 6 pounds (2. 7 kilograms) you lose, your hdl may increase by 1 mg/dl (0. 03 mmol/l). If you focus on becoming more physically active and choosing healthier foods? two other ways to increase your hdl cholesterol? you' ll likely move toward a healthier weight in the process. Get more physical activity. within two months of starting, frequent aerobic exercise can increase hdl cholesterol by about 5 percent in otherwise healthy sedentary adults. Your best bet for increasing hdl cholesterol is to exercise briskly for 30 minutes five times a week. monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats? found in olive, peanut and canola oils? tend to improve hdl' s anti-inflammatory abilities. Nuts, fish and other foods containing omega-3 fatty acids are other good choices for improving your ldl cholesterol to hdl cholesterol ratio.

Now a days due to change in lifestyle of people heart problems are increasing, like sedentary life, excess of junk food, intake of oily fatty food, lack of exercise, drinking alcohol, smoking, stress. Previously the blood pressure should be in control, reduction of weight if overweight, eating nutritious diet including fruits, salad. Exercise on regular basis and if possible yearly checkup for lipid profile which calculates the cholesterol level in blood.

Dear lybrate-user. Please don't worry about BP. Both 115/82 and 120/70 are within normal levels. BP will change if you record it while sitting or lying down, or checking for the second time, after climbing stairs, or thinking/talking about some critical event or after yoga/exercise/games, while resting, or tablets/food that you have taken, etc. You can take psychological therapy for your anxiety disorder from a psychiatrist or clinical psychologist, instead of checking and worrying about BP at the age of 23 yrs.
