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.

You need to go for Naturamore Plus supplements for it 2 times in a day for 3 months. It will definitely help you within 1-2 weeks, but you need to maintain it for 3 months.

If you not getting it anywhere, please let me know, Still if you have queries, please let me know. Take care

For type-1 diabetes diagnosis- blood test for auto antibody which destroys beta cell of pancreas, presence of ketone in blood for type @ diabetes do blood sugar (fasting and post prandial testing,), hba1c (glycosulated hemoglobin) testing consult diabetologist/physician with report for advice and treatment.

My Cardiologist has advised not to take any greasy, oily stuff in the food, but you advise the other way for the Ghee. I have two stents installed in my arteries and doing pretty well. I am overwhelmed with bewilderment and stunned. Do you have clinical proofs to assert your observations? Like researcher. Have found out etc etc or as Several researches indicate that these fatty acids have the ability to burn calories and bringing about weight loss. While decreasing hunger, they are also responsible for oxidation of fats that get accumulated in your body.

Dear Much of the research quoted by our specialist is done in the West where fat in food indicates non Veg fat. Veg oils, seed oils do not have cholesterol like non Veg fats. This is the basic mistake in translating the research done. Cow ghee is well researched for the health benefits. You will find clinical. And medical research in many websites. Try net search. You will be surprised and happy. Regards.

I had heart problem my Dr. Cardiologist. Told to angiography but prior that I had done some report hiv etc all normal except creatine is 1.38 so I should go for angiography or not?

BHMS
Homeopath,
Angiography is advised if you have some block in your heart.its a small pipe getting inserted in your blood vessel and a dye is pushed through that in your blood vessel which will detect any block.it can be diagnostic as well as curative.at the same time things can be done to remove the blocks. It is the only way to diagnose and treat blocks in your heart. if you have more trouble go for it.

Bp fluctuates due to dental pain as well. Sometimes dental pain cause fever also you need to consult dentist asap for the solution of those teeth which you mentioned. For gastritis tell her to take pantoacid -dsr for 1 week empty stomach. Give multivitamin syrup 2 teaspoon morning -night for 2 weeks. She shld consult a physician as well for proper investigations.

Yesterday ni8 while eating dinner I felt a sharp pain below chest, within 3 minutes I got burp and got relief from pain. What does this pain? Why does it occurs?

MBBS, Fellowship From the College of General Practioners
General Physician, Mumbai
This is a typical case of Gastro-oesophygitis, caused by not adequately chewing food & gulping it down the throat. You should chew your food properly, so that it mixes with the saliva, which is alkaline in nature, and then swallow your food to prevent acidity at the junction of the gullet & the stomach. Needless to say, avoid hot spicy food!!!

All About ECMO - Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation

All About ECMO - Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation

How many of us had heard about Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO) before Tamil Nadu, Chief Minister late J Jayalalithaa was put on it for recovery? Hardly a handful. Patients who are placed on the device have 50-50 chance of survival and while it could not help the late Chief Minister, her condition put a spotlight on ECMO.
 
What is ECMO?
ECMO is a life support device that is put in place when a patient’s heart and lungs stop functioning completely post a cardiac arrest. When the patient does not respond to Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR), the patient is put on ECMO.  
 
Function of ECMO 
The core function of the device is to separate carbon dioxide from the blood and add oxygen into it. It takes the load off from heart and lungs, providing critical time to the body organs for its treatment and recovery.
Patients are only put on ECMO, if there is a chance that the condition can be reversed. 
 
How does ECMO work? 
The device drains blood from a vein, which is attached to an oxygenator machine. The machine then removes carbon dioxide from the blood and adds oxygen to it. Depending upon the condition of the patient, the warm blood is either pumped into the body with the help of the machine or is transferred back into the body through an artery. 
 
How long a patient can be on ECMO?

  1. After seven days of being put on ECMO,there are chances of patient getting an infection.
  2. In case the patient contracts an infection, it is recommended to take the patient off ECMO support.
