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.

As of now for headache you can take tablet paracetamol. But we will have to make a diagnosis to get to the cause of it which can be either due to frontal sinusitis or due to migrane or due to refractive error of the eyes or due to other causes for which we have to investigate. If you want medicine than, I will prescibe.

Mr. Lybrate-user, for controlling diabetes effectively you need specific drugs belonging to modern medicine either oral anti - diabetics or insulin injections. The one mentioned by you, is not at all effective. That particular tablet has been only tried on rats in the lab, there too its effectiveness has been about 67%, which as good as a placebo. No human trials are done, there is no safety data on human beings. I will not recommend this tablet to any diabetes patient. When good control is achieves fasting should be closer to 100mg, pp 150 to 160 mg/100ml and hba1c%<6.8. So you need to shift to appropriate treatment right away. Otherwise you are inviting long term serious complications of diabetes related to every single vital organ in the body. Choice is yours.

Looks like it is ge reflux. He needs to control his lifestyle. Do exercises, take meals at regular intervals, stop eating fried, pungent, spicy, sweet and rice. Drink 3 litres of water and sleep before 10 pm. Try triphala choorn 2 spoon twice or thrice a day. And lastly see a good doctor.

I caught cold last night and since then I have been having severe pain in the left part of my chest. What should I do.
There are several things you can do to prevent a cold. they are all easy. -Always wash your hands after coughing or sneezing into your hands, blowing your nose, after touching someone who is sick, or when using public restrooms or telephones. -Cover your mouth and nose when you sneeze or cough. -Get plenty of rest/sleep.staying at home will keep you from spreading germs.Avoid people who have a cold or cold symptoms. -Drink plenty of fluids(veg/tomato soups,dal water/coconut water/herbal tea etc), and eat nutritious food(like sprouts/boiled eggs without yolk with milk). Avoid foods or drinks with caffeine which can impair your sleep -Treatment:A cold usually lasts for a week or two. Unless you develop complications, you shouldn't need medical treatment. -Complications like infections of the ears, throat, sinuses or lungs must be treated with antibiotics. -Gargle to keep from getting a sore throat. -Use saline nasal sprays or nasal irrigation. -Tablet nasorest-p once/twice daily may ease breathing. -Do steam inhalation once or twice daily

Improper diet & long gaps between meals, less water intake, irregular intake of medication can be the reasons. Make sure she has small frequent meals (2-3 hrs interval), take medicine daily & has 3 litres water daily. Cut down on salt intake, she can have dab water daily & 2-3 whole fruits, plenty of vegetables.

Mr. Lybrate-user, your lipids particularly ldl I fairly high, cholesterol is ok. You need to control fat intake particularly trans fats and saturated fats. Avoid deep fried item, egg yolk, red meat, high fat cheese etc. Do regular exercise for over 1 hour a day. Similarly avoid alcohol, certain fishes like sardines, herring, haddock, trout, salmon, scallops, mushrooms, shell fish and organ meat as well as red meat for reducing uric acid. No drug may be needed at this moment.

Hello, I understand that having a baby is very important for you and somewhere in your mind, probably your time clock is ticking away saying that you are getting older now and may not have a baby. And you are so keen to have a baby of your own? this thought alone might be a cause for more anxiety, sense of loss, sadness and anger with yourself. However, I would like to bring to your notice that overthinking about this or anything else will only bring emotional imbalance leading to more bp fluctuations. Our mind and body are connected and any mental and emotional imbalance causes an imbalance in the body. 1. Please exercise everyday within your capacity to burn off the excess calories and fat intake. Exercising will also help in uplifting your mood and improve your self image and give you a sense of control over your body. 2. Eat only healthy food limiting oil, sugars, processed and refined foods to the bare minimum. Raw and whole food diet having more of fruits, vegetables, whole grains is known to control and reduce rising bp. Add a source of good fats like walnuts, nuts and oil seeds to improve your heart functioning. Cut out meats and unhealthy cooking styles and choose steaming, stir frying over boiling and frying. 3. Yoga, meditation etc to control your anxiety and calm down the mind to help become emotionally stable and peaceful. This will also keep your bp stable. Bhramri and anulom vilom are especially 2 pranayamas very helpful in bringing emotional balance. 4. Counselling to help you learn tips and techniques to manage stressful events without losing your mental and emotional equilibrium. You will be able to cope with stress and learn to manage stress and tension with ease. 5. Only when you are healthy, will your baby be healthy. It will need a lot of attention and care when it arrives. What kind of life do you want to give your child? please consider the chances of you not feeling fit enough to take care of the baby keeping your health in mind. 6. Consider other options of having a child: would you rather consider adopting a baby over putting your body through this stress. Or would you like to volunteer your time in a childrens playhome or shelters where abandoned children are taken care of? there are number of ways that you can still meet your need to bring up a child and feel worthwhile and fulfilled. Please consider your options and their pros and cons before rushing in to any decision. Take care.

Take salt restricted diet. Fried salt restriction should be 1800 mg-2750 mg per day. Do not take added salt because most of your vegetables contain sodium already in it. Avoid mustard oil completely. Take sunflower or rice bran oil daily. Avoid red meat and big fishes completely.
