High Blood Pressure - Unani Remedies For Treating It!

Bachelor of Unani Medicine & Surgery (B.U.M.S)
Unani Specialist, Gaya
High Blood Pressure - Unani Remedies For Treating It!

The blood normally exerts some pressure as it passes through the blood vessels. However, due to various reasons, mainly narrowing of the blood vessels, the pressure exerted could be higher, which is known as hypertension.

In the Unani system, early reference to high blood pressure appears as Imtila, though it is today popularly known as Zaghtuddam Qawi. Imtila talks about symptoms including a headache, bulging eyes, epistaxis (bleeding nose), heavy headedness, and headache.

Types: Unani system believes in two ways that can increase blood pressure and therefore two types

  • Increased amount of blood in the vessels, which is caused a hot, moist temperament or the sanguineous type.
  • Dryness of the vessels (caused by narrowing) increases blood pressure, leading to the dry, cold melancholic type.

Causes: Unani believes high blood pressure as a result of the following sequence of events.

  • Weakening of the arteries
  • Increased food consumption, which produces more blood
  • Weak arteries which are not able to accommodate the increased amounts of blood
  • This is a vicious cycle where the arteries are further damaged, leading to further sluggish flow, further increasing pressure.

Complications: High blood pressure is not an isolated health condition. It leads to multiple complications like

  • Chronic heart disease
  • Angina pectoris (heart attacks)
  • Stroke and paralysis
  • Higher levels of cholesterol
  • Predisposition to diabetes

Management: Managing high blood pressure is a combination of treatment and prevention. There are multiple Unani herbs, which are used in multiple formulations which help by

  • Relaxing the muscles of the heart
  • Improves blood flow
  • Eases the blood flow through the arteries

These can be taken regularly along with restrictions on diet and lifestyle which can help in improving blood pressure. These changes would include:

  1. Increased consumption of potassium-rich foods as it will counter the effect of sodium which causes higher blood pressure readings
  2. Avoid adding extra salt and reduce eating the salted, fried foods. Especially, if you have a family history, it is time to reduce salt intake at an early stage. This helps prolong the onset of high blood pressure
  3. Herbs like garlic, pepper, ginger, and lemon are helpful in controlling blood pressure
  4. Herbal teas including hibiscus and green tea are proven to help control blood pressure as opposed to a cup of coffee
  5. Dark chocolate with more than 70 per cent of cocoa is beneficial for the heart
  6. Needless to say, regular exercise including brisk walking which can improve heart’s health
  7. Deep breathing which improves oxygen consumption across arteries
  8. Reduce consumption of alcohol
  9. Quit or cut down on smoking

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

My father was detected with localized prostate cancer last year and was followed by a heart attack later. His age is 61 years. He then have to undergo angioplasty with a non-drug eluting stent. Over one year has passed and his Stress test reports are excellent now as per cardiologist. Can he undergo a radical prostatectomy (prostate cancer surgery ) now or it will be risky for him to undergo surgery? Thank you.

Well one thing needs to be ruled out after one year gap is metastasis. So needs to undergo cect and bone scan if he is operable and pac fit then he can undergo the procedure otherwise hormonal/chemotherapy and performance status of patient is important it is slow growing tumour, if performance status is not good then hormonal therapy is advisable.

Yes. Both are same  Don't worry. Blood pressure Keeps fluctuating in everyone depending upon our physical & psychological stress levels.(BP sabh mein upar neeche hote rehta hai. Stress mein jyada aur rest mein Kam hota hai ).   you need to take a digital BP machine & keep a BP record (Digital BP machine le lo.(see my video on how to use it properly. Aur khud ka BP check karo.   .check it daily for at least one week & Every time you need to measure BP twice or thrice with a gap of 15 mins rest & note down the lowest reading. We need to know how low your blood pressure can go by just resting. If your blood pressure does not become normal by resting then you will need for the revaluation and medication. (Har 15 -15 min k Baad. Aur note karo BP aaram karne se kamm hota hai ya nhi. Ager aaram karne se BP normal ho jata hai to apko BP ki bimari nhi hai. Sirf stress hai. Aur.jinka BP continuously lagatar high rehta hai unko dawa chalu karne ya badhane aur tests ki jaroorat Hoti hai.) You need to first understand few things about blood pressure. Normal range of blood pressure is between 90/60 to 140/90 & blood pressure keeps fluctuating in every one. In stress it rises & while resting it decreases. If it is constantly higher then 140/90 & does not decrease by resting it's then called hypertension.  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) Basic tests should be one to rule out cardiac / kidney issues & find if there is any treatable cause of High blood pressure 2) unless any recent evaluation has been done I would advice these test ECG ECHO Lipid Profile TSH KFT  Renal doppler Fundoscopy Vit D Vit B12 Get back to me with a detailed history and  old / new records For Now Keep taking the same medicines which you are taking (if 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.
