High Blood Pressure Treatment and Sexual Weakness

HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE

Most people who are suffering from high blood pressure have no signs while few of them experience headache, nosebleeds or shortness of breath. You can even have hypertension for years without any symptoms of it. It should be controlled as uncontrolled high blood pressure increases the risk of developing serious health problems such as heart attack and stroke, retinopathy, renal problem etc.

In Ayurveda, hypertension is known as "Raktvat'/ or 'Raktagat Vat' (means where 'vata dosh' has entered 'Rakta dhatu'). The vitiation of Vata and Pitta doshas are the main cause of this disease. Hypertension, according to Ayurveda, is an abnormality of Rakta dhatu (blood) which is popularly known as Shonita dushti (vitiated blood).

Herbal preparations (homemade remedies) which are highly effective in hypertension:

  • Arjuna Ksheerapaka – Milk processed with Arjuna (Terminalia arjuna).
  • Lashuna Ksheerapaka – Milk processed with garlic.

Herbs used solo or combo:

Ashwagandha, Sarpagandha
Amalki, Bala, Brahmi, Shankhpushpi, Ash gourd, Jatamansi, Giloy, Gotu kola

Other herbs which have been proved to have antihypertensive property by research works are:

Celery, Bishop’s weed, Ajawain, Carrot, Flaxseed / Linseed, Tomato – Drumstick – Moringa (Shigru),
Tulsi – Bhumi Amla – Pome granate –
Seasame, Wheat bran, – Black plum,
Ginger etc.

READYMADE AYURVEDIC MED made of above and others are commonly Sarpagandha Ghan vati, Giloy satv, Arjunarishta, Ashwagandharisht , Brahmi vati, Hridyarnav Ras etc (Pl do not take yourself but discuss with ayurvedic doctor first)

TIP
Many of above medicines may be taken concurrently with your allopathic medicine. People who are hypertensive for long and on modern anti hypertensive, usually lose sexual power sooner (Both male n female). On the contrary many of the above herbs are Rejuvenating in nature and if u start using ayurvedic antihypertensives either parallel to your current modern regime or switch to pure ayurveda in phased manner, you will notice how Rejuvenation of sex comes back. However it's not overnight action but is conquered gradually - but definately. 

Anybody can do away dependency on modern antihypertensives and switch easily to safe herbals.

Vertigo - How Ayurveda Can Help You Treat it?

Are you aware of the causes and symptoms of vertigo? Also known as bhrama, vertigo is a balance disorder. It is also referred to as a spinning sensation and head rush. A sense of spinning of the nearby surroundings is experienced by a person affected with vertigo. Standing in an upright position becomes difficult. The onset of this condition occurs in several ways. Ayurveda has a complex explanation for vertigo or bhrama, which is as follows:

Ayurvedic approach
According to Ayurveda, vertigo is caused because of your pitta and vata doshas.

  • When the vata and pitta doshas get excited, an abnormal functioning of the balance mechanism within your inner ear is caused.
  • A vestibular imbalance, or an imbalance in the inner part of your ear is the primary cause of vertigo. It disrupts the coordination of a stimulus and response.
  • Any defect or disruption in the proper flow of oxygen to the ear can result in vertigo attacks.

Factors causing imbalance in doshas

  • Viral infections like common cold
  • Ear problems like discharges, infections in the ear cavity, and perforation of the eardrum
  • Certain cardiovascular diseases such as low blood pressure, valve diseases, and improper heart rhythms
  • Migraine and anemia
  • Certain neck ailments such as cervical spondylosis
  • Arthritis and injury to the head that leads to concussions

Ayurvedic treatment

Several Ayurvedic herbs and remedies are used for the treatment of vertigo. These herbs are added to a patient’s regular diet. They are as follows:

  • Ashwagandha improves the flow of oxygen in your body. It is commonly used for dealing with respiratory problems that result in vertigo or bhrama.
  • Ginkgo is the most effective Ayurvedic herb for curbing all forms of circulatory problems. It enhances the flow of oxygen to various parts of your body. It is ideal for the reduction and elimination of vertigo. It also cures ringing in the ears, which is a common vertigo symptom.
  • The roots of the vacha tree are effective in giving relief to vertigo patients.
  • A concoction made of Guduchi Kasaya is effective in curing a vertigo. One should have 30ml of the concoction every morning, at least half an hour before breakfast.
  • Other important Ayurvedic remedies that help with vertigo management include Triphala, Sarpagandha, Yogendra rasa, Saraswatarishtha, and many others.

It is recommended for you to consult an Ayurvedic practitioner before starting Ayurvedic treatment for vertigo on your own. He will be able to diagnose your condition and severity, and accordingly prescribe the best treatment.

  6. Jatamansi - By helping the free radical damage on the arteries, it protects the arteries and prevents cholesterol accumulation. It also is a very well-proven stress reliever and has additional benefits on hypertension.
  7. Arjuna - By helping the metabolism of the bad cholesterol in the liver, this protects the inner lining of the heart and thereby helps control hypertension.
  8. Calcium and potassium containing substances help remove sodium and thereby improve blood pressure.
  9. Natural herbs like Brahmi, Sarpagandha, Shankhpushpi, and Chandana are effective Ayurvedic cure and treatment for hypertension.
  10. Rasayana treatment from ayurveda is having excellent results, however everyone requires unique rasayan as per their body types.
