Ayurvedic Treatment of Hypertension
Hypertension is a term which is used for high blood pressure (blood pressure higher than 140 over 90 mm Hg). It is a common condition in which the force of blood against our walls of artery is high enough that it can lead to various other health problems such as heart problems.
Symptoms of Hypertension
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.
Healthy Diet for People Suffering from Hypertension
Person suffering from hypertension should reduce intake of sodium. Potassium and calcium rich foods should be included in your diet. Fresh fruits and vegetables, especially bananas, grapefruits, prunes, potatoes and tomatoes are the natural source of potassium and calcium. Saturated fats and cholesterol rich foods should be limited. They should not be taken in excess amount. Avoid drinking caffeinated tea and coffee. Avoid fast foods as much as possible. Biscuits, soups, canned soups, processed meats and potato chips are some of the foods that should be avoided in order to manage the symptoms of high blood pressure.
Ayurvedic Approach to Hypertension
Ayurveda is an ancient healthcare system that helps to maintain a healthy body in a natural way. According to Ayurveda, imbalance in any of the tridoshas (Vata, Pitta and Kapha dosha) leads to health problems.
In Ayurveda, hypertension is known as "Rakta cappa vridhi". 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).
