My blood pressure is very high 122/180. What remedial measures I should take. I am 32yrs.
Dear lybrate-user, your blood pressure is very high and needs to be addressed immediately. I hope you are consulting a physician. First thing to be done is to identify the reason as high blood pressure is a symptom of an underlying disease. Get your cholestrol, kidney profile, liver profile and diabetes scanning done along with an ecg. And revert general guidelines would include stress reducing methodology like yoga, pranayam, low salt diet and ofcourse treating the cause. Do not delay please consult a physician immediately.

It seems that your constitution is definitely not made to consume marijuana, which is a good development. Therefore do not touch it again. You will recover soon if you maintain a regular exercise regimen and eat and sleep well. You will be fine within a few days.

Reduce salt in take. Go for a walk for at least 40 minutes. Take your medicine regularly. Never miss it unless your Doctor ask you to do so. Do Kapla bhath and anulom vilom prarnayam for 10 minutes each.

How Effective is Homeopathy in Treating Cardiovascular Diseases?

How Effective is Homeopathy in Treating Cardiovascular Diseases?

The Homeopathic medicines have been made use of even before the 18th century, but the systematic investigation and thorough study on these medicines were carried out by the German physician Samuel Christian Hahnemann. Homeopathic medicines are very useful in strengthening the resistance of an individual to an illness and medications are provided after studying the sick patient and not the disease. The medicines prescribed do not mainly depend on the diagnostic testing or blood chemistry analysis. They are, in fact, prescribed on the basis of direct observation of the symptoms reported by a patient.

How effective is homeopathy in treating cardiovascular diseases?
Homeopathy medicines are widely used to treat several medical conditions. Homeopaths prescribe constructional remedies for illnesses that are chronic in nature and these mainly include cardiovascular complaints. It is after understanding the cardiac symptoms of a patient are homeopathic medicines prescribed. The different cardiac complaints for which homeopathic medicines can be taken include congestive heart failure, palpitations, angina and syncope.

The homeopathy medicines are used to treat even many clinical and cardiovascular diseases. Many random trials have been done to prove that homeopathy treatment is effective in treating conditions like childhood diarrhoea, allergic conditions and post-operative conditions. These medicines are also used to treat respiratory, nervous cardiovascular and musculoskeletal systems. High blood pressure can also be treated using the homeopathy medicines. This is because an increased blood pressure is very risky as it can cause heart troubles and there are possibilities of an individual having a stroke.

Cardiac problems that can be Treated By Homeopathy Medicines

  1. Conditions like nervousness and worrying are the main cause of hypertension and it results in high blood pressure. Hence, this condition should be checked on time.
  2. It is very important that right medications are taken and that are prescribed by a qualified doctor. The homeopathic medicines that are prescribed for high blood pressure include Nux vomica, Calcarea carbonica, Sanguinaria, Plumbum and Phosphorous.
  3. Use of homeopathic medicines unlike the prescription medicines does not cause any side effects, and they are of great use in decreasing hypertension.

However, homeopathic medicines should also be taken after consulting the Doctor. The blood pressure and cholesterol level of an individual are lowered using homeopathic medicines, and these are of great use in preventing a heart attack. There are many cardiologists who even prescribe homeopathic medicines to their patients for treating a cardiovascular disease. The depiction of cardiac symptoms is quite different and these include bursting, aching, cold, cramps, heaviness, jerks, pulsation, spasm, oppression and throbbing and depending on the symptoms, homeopathic medicines are provided to treat the health condition.

There is no point in masking the pain we have to find the root cause and deal it than only the problem will get solved. You could have a radiculopaty or neuropathy you have to answer several questions before i come to a diagnosis gabapentin will have a masking effect on the nervous system it may make you drowsy.

high 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. Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress, take green veg., whole grain. Take anti cholesterol medicines .

He could be suffering from gastritis or gastro esophageal reflux disease. Avoid spicy and fried foods. Also avoid junk food and fast food. If his problems are worse, you need to take an ecg and take medications.

Hi there. See there are many drugs available for diabetes, hypertension and high cholestrol. But all the prescriptions should be individulised. It depends on the exact values of lipid profile and sugar values and the blood pressure and ideally medicines cud only be given by checking patient in person. I advise you to please see a doctor. Thank u.
