Dear lybrateuser, -you can do gentle & restorative yoga if you do not have symptoms of dizziness, shortness of breath, fatigue or heart arrhythmia -do poses where you are able to rest supine without shortness of breath, avoid vigorous yoga practice -you can also do normal walking for 15-20 min daily -do take advice from your physician before setting out on a programme.

Its not advisable to stop telma and atorva type med. In between and your physician would never advise you for that. However if you want herbal med as a supportive therapy, it may be taken and slowly switch to ayurveda mode to have a controlled bp. First of all take tarunikusumakar powder 1 tsp twice a day for a week then 1tsp once for a week then 1 tsp at night every alternate day for two weeks. Take with lukewarm water preferably. Yes even in hot season it is advised to take with lukewarm water for best results. As soon as you start getting relief in stomach related problems, please revert for further advise giving this reference. After info from you, I may advise for ayurvedic antihypertensive suitable to you.

Dear Lybrate User, *Avoid meat, eggs, table salt, pickles, tea and coffee. *Avoid smoking as it increases heart rate. *Increase use of garlic, lemon, parsley, Indian gooseberry (amla), watermelon, grapefruit, skim milk and cottage cheese. Regular exercise is one of the best ways to lower blood pressure; brisk walking, jogging, swimming and athletics are good options. Laughter is the best medicine, as it relieves stress and anxiety, which are the main causes of high blood pressure in today’s lifestyle.

You can reverse this loss of stamina, if you leave alcohol soon. You should visualize how high you used to feel when you you were an athlete. Choose your highs and compare both the highs, choose the high of fitness, strength and vitality. Do it everyday, you are so young you can bring back your body to a good shape.

Eat healthy. That means eat salads and no fried or refined foods. Eat 200 gms of salad with every meal. Go for some exercise like walking Yoga or aerobics. This will be better than taking medicines for your problem.

How to reduce cholesterol level from 262 to normal and LDL from 193 to normal. HDL is 44 Triglyceride 126 VL DL. 25.

How to reduce cholesterol level from 262 to normal and LDL from 193 to normal.
HDL is  44
Triglyceride 126 
VL DL. 25.
Cholesterol level should be measured at least once every five years in everyone over age 20. The screening test that is usually performed is a blood test called a lipid profile. Experts recommend that men ages 35 and older and women ages 45 and older be more frequently screened for lipid disorders. The lipoprotein profile includes: Total cholesetrol LDL (low-density lipoprotein CHOLESETROL also called "bad"CHOLESTETROL HDL (high-density lipoprotein cholesterol, also called "good" cholesterol) TRIGLYCERIDES (fats carried in the BLOOD from the food we eat. Excess calories, alcohol, or sugar in the body are converted into TRIGLYCERIDES and stored in fat cells throughout the body. High triglycerides and cholesterol can cause atherosclerotic heart disease or narrowed coronary arteries in the heart can cause the symptoms of angina, when theheart muscle is not provided with enough oxygen to function. Decreased blood supply to the brain may be due to narrowed small arteries in the brain or because the larger carotidarteries in the neck may become blocked. This can result in a transient ischmic attack or stroke. Peripheral artery disease describes gradual narrowing of the arteries that supply the legs. During exercise , if the legs do not get enough blood supply, they can develop pain , called claudication . Other arteries in the body may also be affected by plaque buildup causing them to narrow, including the mesenteric arteries to the intestine and the renal arteries to the kidney. Change life style .do meditation,yoga, Go walk daily, do any one physically activity daily i.e.play any game., Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress,take plenty of water in day time. And 1 glass of water before bed at night. use flax oil, omega-3 fatty meal or cap., take .green veg., whole grain. GARLIC,. Cod liver oil. Take anti cholesterol medicines . Cap. Ecosprin gold-10 at night daily.

Sertaline belongs to ssri (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors) group of medicines, given for anxiety, depression, compulsive disorders and other medical conditions to soothe the nerves temporarily. If you have taken only 1 accidently, wait for effect to wean off gradually, take more water and ors & do not take fats or heavy food. Gradually medicine will be out of system but you will have to bear the side effects. You can take a tablet of antiallergic phenargan if anxiety persists. Serotonin is good mood hormone. Eat cashew nuts which are naturally rich in this hormone.

Colds& cough often respond well to homeopathic remedies Homeopathic medicines like bryonia alba, allium cepa, ant tart, merc sol, calc carb has geart effect on cough and cold.

Symptoms of generalized anxiety disorder, is it related to high blood pressure. Please explain.

Masters in Clinical Psychology

Symptoms of generalized anxiety disorder, is it related to high blood pressure.
Please explain.
Only a doctor can diagnose whether or not your high blood pressure is caused by anxiety or by a more serious health condition. Age, weight, gender, and family history all play a role. High blood pressure is rarely the only symptom of anxiety. Anxiety doesn't cause long-term high blood pressure (hypertension). But episodes of anxiety can cause dramatic, temporary spikes in your blood pressure. If those temporary spikes occur frequently, such as every day, they can cause damage to your blood vessels, heart and kidneys, as can chronic high blood pressure. In addition, when you have anxiety you're more likely to resort to other unhealthy habits that can increase your blood pressure, such as: smoking drinking alcoholic beverages overeating.
