Dear Pinku, Stopping smoking itself will be helpful. It needs continuous motivation for 3-6 months. You can do it if you don't want chest pain. However check up with doctor about your chest pain. You know that nicotine affects heart badly.

Bp Kam Karne Ka Upay - बीपी कम करने के उपाय

Bp Kam Karne Ka Upay - बीपी कम करने के उपाय

आज के दौर में ब्लड प्रेशर के मरीजों की तादाद दिन ब दिन बढ़ती जा रही है। दौड़- भाग भरी जिंदगी, फॉस्ट फूड और अनियमित दिनचर्या की वजह से आजकल हर उम्र के लोगों में पाया जाने लगा है। और वैसे तो ब्लड प्रेशर की बीमारी साधारण लगती है पर अगर इसपर काबू न पाया गया तो यह बीमारी दिल की बीमारी, स्ट्रोक और गुर्दे की बीमारी होने का भी खतरा रहता है। और एक बात ब्लड प्रेशर कम हो या ज्यादा ख़तरनाक दोनों ही होते हैं। 

अब समस्या है तो समाधान तो ढूंढना ही पड़ेगा। पर इसके भी दो तरीके है एक रोज अंग्रेजी दवाएं खाकर राहत ली जाए पर इसके साइड इफ़ेक्ट होना तय है, और दूसरा है घरेलू उपचार जो जिसे अपनाकर आप ब्लड प्रेशर पर तो काबू पा ही जाएंगे साथ ही शरीर की और कई बीमारियों में लाभ पहुंचाएगा और साइड इफ़ेक्ट भी नहीं होगा। तो आइए आज हम जानते हैं बढ़े हुए ब्लड प्रेशर को कम करने के घरेलू टिप्स।

1. चोकर युक्त आटा
गेहूं व चने के आटे को बराबर मात्रा में लेकर बनाई गई रोटी खूब चबा-चबाकर खाएं, आटे से चोकर न निकालें। यह ब्लड प्रेशर कंट्रोल करने में काफी कारगर नुस्खा है।

2. ब्राउन राइस
ब्राउन चावल उपयोग में लाए। इसमें नमक, कोलेस्टरोल और चर्बी नाम मात्र की होती है। यह उच्च रक्त चाप रोगी के लिये बहुत ही लाभदायक भोजन है।

3. लहसुन
लहसुन में एलिसीन होता है, जो नाइट्रिक ऑक्साइड के उत्पादन को बढ़ाता है और मांसपेशियों को आराम पहुंचाता है। ब्लड प्रेशर के डायलोस्टिक और सिस्टोलिक सिस्टम में भी राहत देता है। यही कारण है कि ब्लड प्रेशर के मरीजों को रोजाना खाली पेट एक लहसुन की कली निगलनी चाहिए।

4. आंवला
वैसे तो आंवला काफी बीमारियों में मदद करता है पर आज से आप जानलें की आंवला ब्लड प्रेशर के लिए भी बहुत राहत पहुंचाने वाला है। आंवला में विटामिन सी होता है। यह ब्लड सर्कुलेशन को ठीक करता है और कोलेस्ट्रॉल को भी कंट्रोल में रखता है।

5. मूली
वैसे तो मूली एक साधारण सब्जी है। पर इसे खाने से ब्लड प्रेशर कंट्रोल में रहता है। इसे पकाकर या कच्चा खाने से बॉडी को मिनरल्स व सही मात्रा में पोटैशियम मिलता है। यह हाइ-सोडियम डाइट के कारण बढ़ने वाले ब्लड प्रेशर पर भी असर डालता है।

6. तिल और चावल की भूसी
तिल का तेल और चावल की भूसी को एक साथ खाने से ब्लड प्रेशर कंट्रोल में रहता है। यह हाइपरटेंशन के मरीजों के लिए भी लाभदायक होता है। माना जाता है कि यह ब्लड प्रेशर कम करने वाली अन्य औषधियों से ज्यादा बेहतर होता है। 

7. अलसी
अलसी में एल्फा लिनोनेलिक एसिड काफी मात्रा में पाया जाता है। यह एक प्रकार का महत्वपूर्ण ओमेगा - 3 फैटी एसिड है। कई स्टडीज में भी पता चला है कि जिन लोगों को हाइपरटेंशन की शिकायत होती है, उन्हें अपने भोजन में अलसी का इस्तेमाल शुरू करना चाहिए। इसमें कोलेस्ट्रॉल की मात्रा कम होती है और इसे खाने से ब्लड प्रेशर भी कम हो जाता है

8. इलायची
जानकारों के मुताबिक इलायची के नियमित सेवन से ब्लड प्रेशर प्रभावी ढंग से कम होता है। इसे खाने से शरीर को एंटीऑक्सीडेंट मिलते हैं। साथ ही, ब्लड सर्कुलेशन भी सही रहता है।

9. प्याज
नियमित प्याज खाने से कोलेस्ट्रॉल कंट्रोल में रहता है। इसमें क्योरसेटिन होता है। यह एक ऐसा ऑक्सीडेंट फ्लेवेनॉल है, जो दिल को बीमारियों से बचाता है।

10. दालचीनी
दालचीनी के सेवन से ब्लड प्रेशर कंट्रोल में रहता है। दालचीनी में एंटीऑक्सीडेंट पाया जाता है यह ब्लड सर्कुलेशन को सुचारू रखता है।

11. नामक कम खाएं
नमक ब्लड प्रेशर बढाने वाला प्रमुख कारक है। इसलिए यह बात सबसे महत्वपूर्ण है कि जिनकी बीपी हाई हो उन्हें नामक खाने से बचना चाहिए। 

12. रक्त गाढ़ा ना होने दें
लहसुन ब्लड प्रेशर ठीक करने में बहुत मददगार घरेलू उपाय है। यह रक्त का थक्का नहीं जमने देती है। धमनी की कठोरता में लाभदायक है। रक्त में ज्यादा कोलेस्ट्ररोल होने की स्थिति का समाधान करती है। उच्च रक्तचाप का एक प्रमुख कारण होता है रक्त का गाढा होना। रक्त गाढा होने से उसका प्रवाह धीमा हो जाता है। इससे धमनियों और शिराओं में दवाब बढ जाता है। 

13. आंवले का रस
एक बड़ा चम्मच आंवले का रस उसी मात्रा में हनी मिलाकर सुबह-शाम लेने से हाई ब्लड प्रेशर में राहत मिलती है। 

14. काली मिर्च
जब ब्लड प्रेशर बढ़ा हुआ हो तो आधा ग्लास हल्का गर्म पानी में एक चम्मच काली मिर्च पाउडर घोलकर 2-2 घंटे के डिस्टेंस पर पीते रहें। यह ब्लड प्रेशर सही करने का बढिया उपचार है।

15. नींबू
हाई हुए ब्लड प्रेशर को जल्दी कंट्रोल करने के लिये आधा गिलास पानी में आधा नींबू का रस 2-2 घंटे के अंतर से पीते रहें। इससे तुरन्त फायदा होगा।

16. तुलसी 
कुछ तुलसी के पत्ते और दो नीम की पत्तियों को पीसकर 20 ग्राम पानी में घोलकर खाली पेट सुबह पिएं। 15 दिन में असर महसूस होने लगेगा।

17. पपीता
हाई ब्लडप्रेशर के मरीजों के लिए पपीता भी बहुत लाभ करता है, इसे प्रतिदिन खाली पेट चबा-चबाकर खाएं।

18. शर्बत
सौंफ़, जीरा, शक्कर तीनों बराबर मात्रा में लेकर पाउडर बना लें। एक गिलास पानी में एक चम्मच मिश्रण घोलकर सुबह-शाम पिएं।

19. अदरक
बुरा कोलेस्ट्रोल धमनियों की दीवारों पर प्लेक यानी कि कैल्शियम युक्त मैल पैदा करता है जिससे रक्त के प्रवाह में अवरोध खड़ा हो जाता है और नतीजा उच्च रक्तचाप के रूप में सामने आता है। अदरक में बहुत हीं ताकतवर एंटीओक्सीडेट्स होते हैं जो कि बुरे कोलेस्ट्रोल को नीचे लाने में काफी असरदार होते हैं। अदरक से आपके रक्तसंचार में भी सुधार होता है, धमनियों के आसपास की मांसपेशियों को भी आराम मिलता है जिससे कि उच्च रक्तचाप नीचे आ जाता है।

20. मेथी
तीन ग्राम मेथीदाना पावडर सुबह-शाम पानी के साथ लें। इसे पंद्रह दिनों तक लेने से लाभ जरूर फायदा होगा।

21. वॉक
नंगे पैर हरी घास पर रोजाना 10-15 मिनट वॉक करें। इसे नियम में लाने से ब्लड प्रेशर नार्मल रहता है।

Human growth hormone is secreted in spurts Hence a single reading is not decisive of low value. It is better to get insulin like growth factor 1 (IGF1) through which human growth hormone acts by stimulating it. Igf 1 remains more or less constantly in blood. Another batter teste is Growth hormone stimulation test.

What's the home remedy for thyroid? How to reduce high blood pressure? Please tell me exercise & food.
by saying thyroid if you are referring to hypothyroidism, then there is no home remedy other than avoiding following soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, peanuts, mustard and coffee. Plus consuming good deal of green leafy vegetables, fruits. Using whole grain flour for chapati and roti. Avoiding using maida and other refined flours. With all this thyroxine tablets in adequate dose are required, without which hypothyroidism will not be controlled. To control bp main thing you have remember is to reduce salt intake to about 2.3 g a day. Also avoid high fat foods and processed foods. Thanks for the question.

Cholesterol is a type of fat. It has both good and bad effects on the body. Your body uses cholesterol to make hormones and to build and maintain nerve cells. However, when your body has too much cholesterol, deposits of fat in the blood called plaque form inside blood vessel walls. The blood vessel walls thicken and the vessels become narrower (a condition called atherosclerosis). This change in the blood vessels reduces blood flow through the blood vessels, possibly leading to heart attacks or strokes. Most of the cholesterol in your blood is made by your liver from the fats, carbohydrates, and proteins you eat. You also get cholesterol by eating animal products such as meat, eggs, and dairy products. How is cholesterol measured? When you get your cholesterol checked, your health care provider will give you a number for your total cholesterol level. You can use the chart below to see if your total cholesterol is high.   Total Cholesterol Level (mg/dL) less than 200 good 200 to 239 borderline high 240 or above high When your cholesterol is measured and found to be high, your health care provider may also check the amount of LDL (low-density lipoproteins) and HDL (high-density lipoproteins) in your blood. LDL and HDL carry cholesterol through your blood. LDLs carry a lot of cholesterol, leave behind fatty deposits on your artery walls, and contribute to heart disease. HDLs do the opposite. They clean the artery walls and remove extra cholesterol from the body, thus lowering the risk of heart disease. LDL is called "bad" cholesterol. (You can think of "L" for "lousy" cholesterol.) HDL is called "good" cholesterol (think of "H" for "healthy" cholesterol). It is good to have low levels of LDL and high levels of HDL. The recommended levels of LDL are shown in the following chart:   Recommended LDL Cholesterol Level (mg/dL) Less than 160 For most people Less than 130 If you have an increased risk of heart disease Less than 100 If you have heart disease, diabetes, peripheral artery disease, abdominal aortic aneurysm, or symptomatic carotid artery disease For HDL, a level below 40 mg/dL is too low. The recommended HDL level is 45 mg/dL or higher. How can I control my cholesterol level? Cholesterol levels can usually be controlled by eating right, exercising, and not smoking. Follow these diet guidelines to help control your cholesterol: Reduce the amount of cholesterol in your diet. The American Heart Association recommends eating no more than 250 to 300 milligrams (mg) of cholesterol a day. Eat less fat. Fats should contribute no more than 30% of your daily calories. Only 10% of the fat you eat should be saturated fat. Some kinds of fats are better than others. Polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats are better than saturated fats. Monounsaturated fats are found in olive oil, canola oil, and avocados. Polyunsaturated fats are found in fish and some vegetable oils. Saturated fat raises your blood cholesterol because it makes it hard for the body to clear the cholesterol away. Saturated fat is found in different amounts in almost all foods. Butter, some oils, meat, and poultry fat contain a lot of saturated fat. Adjust the amount of calories you eat and exercise regularly to maintain a lean body weight. To control the amount of fat and cholesterol you eat: Check food labels for fat and cholesterol content. Limit the amount of butter and margarine you eat.Use sunflower, safflower, soybean, canola, corn, or olive oil rather than tropical oils such as palm or coconut. Use salad dressings and margarine made with polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats.Use egg whites or egg substitutes rather than whole eggs. Replace whole-milk dairy products with nonfat or low-fat milk, cheese, spreads, and yogurt. Eat skinless chicken, turkey, fish, and meatless entrees more often than red meat.Choose lean cuts of meat and trim off all visible fat. Keep portion sizes moderate. Avoid fatty desserts such as ice cream, cream-filled cakes, and cheesecakes. Choose fresh fruits, nonfat frozen yogurt, Popsicles, etc. Reduce the amount of fried foods, vending machine food, and fast food you eat. Limit the amount of nuts you eat, especially nuts high in saturated fat. Examples of nuts that are especially high in saturated fat are cashews, pistachios, and Brazil and macadamia nuts. Eat fruits and vegetables (especially fresh fruits and leafy vegetables), beans, and whole grains daily. The fiber in these foods helps lower cholesterol. Look for low-fat or nonfat varieties of the foods you like to eat, or look for substitutes. Exercise goes hand-in-hand with a healthy diet for controlling cholesterol. Exercise helps because it: Keeps your weight down. Decreases your total cholesterol level. Decreases your LDL (bad cholesterol).Increases your HDL (good cholesterol). A good exercise program includes aerobic exercise. Aerobic exercise is any activity that keeps your heart rate up (such as swimming, jogging, walking, and bicycling). You should get 20 to 30 minutes of aerobic exercise at least every other day. If you haven't been exercising, ask your health care provider for an exercise prescription and start your new exercise program slowly. If you smoke, quit. Smoking increases your risk of heart disease because it lowers HDL levels. High cholesterol may run in families. Know your family history and discuss it with your health care provider. In summary, to control your cholesterol level: Eat healthy. Get regular exercise. Don't smoke. Check your cholesterol yearly. For low Vit D, take Vit D Supplements, once a week, and spend atleast 20 min in sunlight.
