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.

Blood pressure readings are a combination of two measurements. These are:
Systolic ? is the highest pressure against the arteries as the heart pumps. The normal systolic pressure is usually between 110 and 130mmHg.
Diastolic ? is the pressure against the arteries as the heart relaxes and fills with blood. The normal diastolic pressure is usually between 70 and 80mmHg.

Precautions for high blood pressures, diet required. And other proactive measures, thank you.
To control & maintain BP normal these are best methods to follow:.• Do physical exercise like jogging, running or brisk walk for atleast 20-30 minutes. • Maintain your cholesterol level to normal & eat least amount of butter, cream or fatty things. • Eat less amount of pickle, salt and fast food as they contain high sodium levels. • Avoid drinking alcohol and smoking. • Take less amount of caffine containing coffee, tea or cold drinks because caffine causes increase BP. • Drink 8 to 10 glass of water daily • Take 6 to 8 hrs of sleep daily. Do not take too much stress. • Do long breathing pranayams (Anulom- Vilom, Bhramari) daily for 10 - 15 minutes. It will reduce your stress level in your body. • Eat healthy diet such as green leafy vegetables, fruits. • Take 5 ml of GULAB Jal added in a glass of water daily once a day. You can consult me privately for more medicine treatment and doubts.

Congestive Heart Failure - Factors that Make it Fatal

Congestive Heart Failure - Factors that Make it Fatal

Our survival is solely reliant on the working of the heart. It is this that makes the prospect of a heart failure so fatal and so terrifying. Notwithstanding what the heart evokes, a heart failure is not indicative of a defunct heart; but only a situation when the heart pumps weaker than what is generally deemed as natural. Consequently, the blood flows at a slower rate to the heart and the body that in turn increases pressure in the heart. The oxygen that is produced by the heart in such a scenario is scanty and insufficient for the body.

body responds with its own defense mechanism, as the heart, in an attempt to hold more blood, stretches its chambers. Though this strenuous effort may keep the blood moving, it would gradually and inevitably weary the heart with all the effort. Subsequently, the kidney responds by retaining more salt and fluid in the body. These fluids may accumulate in different parts of the body, mainly in the legs, feet, ankles leading to congestion in the body. This very condition in medical terminology is referred to as congestive heart failure. 

Different causes can contribute to the onset of such a fatal condition. Some of them are

  1. Coronary artery disease: In such a condition, the arteries supply insufficient amount of oxygen and blood to the heart. Subsequently, the heart receives scanty amount of nutrients and oxygen.
  2. Heart attack: The sudden, unanticipated blockage of the coronary artery and the ensuing stoppage of the flow of the blood lead to a heart attack. The heart muscles are damaged in such a case and prevent the proper functioning.
  3. Diseases: Though the term may be generic and over expansive, most of the ailments which people suffer from tend to manifest themselves by posing a potential threat to the functioning of the heart. A high blood pressure, kidney disease, even a thyroid disease can cause congestive heart failure.

Every disorder is preceded by certain symptoms, and congestive heart failure is no different. Some of them are

  1. Fatigue: This is one of the most perceptible symptoms of congestive heart failure. One of the earliest premonitions of an impending heart failure is a nagging sense of weariness and lethargy.
  2. Swelling: As the condition is characterized by accumulation and build-up of fluids in various part of the body, swelling is an inevitable symptom of this condition and a clear indication of the ailment.

If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult the doctor and ask a free question.

Aten is usually avoided in diabetes,because it masks symptoms of hypoglycaemia, unless you have ischemic heart disease. Abanna is brand from Himalaya which is used in Ayurveda.

Hi, first and foremost, you will require bringing down your high bp through medication while making an effort to systemically bring down your cholesterol levels. I would advise you to first meet up a medicine specialist or a cardiologist who shall evaluate you clinically and prescribe the needful medication to arrest your high bp and also cholesterol levels. At the same time, you will require to streamline your diet and avoid sweets, oily and fried stuff. I would advise you to consume more of whole grain cereals, bread, fresh & fibrous fruits (especially apples) & vegetables and stay hydrated, drinking at least 8 - 10 glasses of water daily. Especially, coriander water is also known to help bring down cholesterol levels. Additionally, omega-3s, vegetable oils with pufa, garlic, amla, cayenne, green tea, vitamin d, fenugreek (methi), isabgol, flaxseed et al help bring down high cholesterol levels too. It is also important that you streamline your lifestyle, exercise daily for at least 30 to 45 minutes, and try reducing your stress levels at work and also at home. Certain yogasana (especially vajrasana) & pranayams also help control cholesterol & obesity both. Remember that relaxation too is equally important for your heath. Hope this helps address your problems of both high cholesterol & bp. You may connect with me in private to discuss and come up with a well-researched, integrated & holistic natural treatment plan/ prescription that suits you in particular and one that provides you a sustainable relief from your chronic issues. All the very best.

Your need to get checked for cardiac profile. Regarding magnesium. Most of the studies show that it benefits the heart in general, not only the valves which are defective and may require a surgery. Magnesium is present in most of vitamins tablets and there is no separate tablet of magnesium. Most of the greens have it and banana is a risk have source of magnesium. But do get checked by a heart surgeon without fear.

How to prevent heart deceases? Or heart attack? Any preventive measures are there to avoid it? Pls advice.
Hello, Healthy diet, regular physical activity, and not using tobacco products are the keys to prevention. Eat a healthy diet: A balanced diet is crucial to a healthy heart and circulation system. This should include plenty of fruit and vegetables, whole grains, lean meat, fish and pulses, and restricted salt, sugar and fat intake. Take regular physical activity: At least 30 minutes of regular physical activity every day helps to maintain cardiovascular fitness; at least 60 minutes on most days helps to maintain healthy weight. Avoid tobacco use: Tobacco in every form is very harmful to health - cigarettes, cigars, pipes, or chewable tobacco. Exposure to second-hand tobacco smoke is also dangerous. The risk of heart attack and stroke starts to drop immediately after a person stops using tobacco products, and can drop by as much as half after one year. Check and control your cardiovascular risk:

We had shown her to lot of doctors and had done lot of tests, but nothing comes out. Kindly suggest some thing.

Possibly she is frustrated, irritated, stressed and angry about some aspects of her life. She needs a one to one open talk with an expert who can understand her. A Psychotherapist and guide her. General doctors may not be able to help. She may not need medicines, only care, empathy and compassion. I feel she is taking too much pressure of her studies and her self expectations are too high. Be quick and connect either online or in person.
