Can Ayurveda Cure the Problem of Hypertension?

Vyanabala Vaishamya i.e. Hypertension; it is a chronic illness of the body that elevates the levels of blood pressure abnormally because of certain causes. It pumps up the speed of blood flow that hits forcibly on the walls of arteries and veins. The force enforced narrows the arteries leading to the condition of high blood pressure and eventually, heart or kidney failure. The Hypertension treatment in Ayurveda states that an affected person can continue to live with or without the symptoms of Vyanabala Vaishamya (Hypertension) until some serious complication doesn’t take place in the body.

The excerpt from Ayurvedic texts suggests that the unmanaged levels of blood pressure can aggravate the problems and may result in a silent attack, stroke, blurred vision, kidney failure and heart failure. It is a silent killer that obstructs the functioning of the human body all at once. It is the same reason why hypertension is known to be the second major cause of kidney diseases. Thankfully, the Ayurvedic treatment for Hypertension provides stability and free from all the complications that occur because of Vyanabala Vaishamya. The normal levels of blood pressure lie below the range of 120/80 (systolic/ diastolic). Normal blood pressure would be less than 120/80 but above 90/60 {systolic/diastolic}.

  • Systolic blood pressure: The former number (120) indicates how much blood is flowing against the walls of the arteries when the heart is beating.
  • Diastolic blood pressure: The later number (80) of the blood pressure tells the blood flow against the arteries when the heart is resting in between the heartbeats.

Now let us discuss high blood pressure through the eyes of Ayurvedic treatment for hypertension. Ayurveda is an ancient remedy that provides a natural or herbal cure to revive the functioning of any organ. Similarly, in the case of high blood pressure; the management of blood flow is circulated with an adequate adaptation of food & beverages and lifestyle changes.

What are the signs that the body shows during high blood pressure?

As discussed above that many patients can continue their lifestyle with high blood pressure unknowingly. Still, a few symptoms can help the patient in understanding the abnormalities happening in the body:

  • Severe headaches
  • Shortness of breath
  • Nosebleeds
  • Vomiting
  • Dizziness
  • Chest pain prompting heart stroke
  • Visual changes in the body
  • Blood when passing urine

The seriousness of the disorder can be identified only when the Ayurvedacharya finds out the type of hypertension. Indeed, different types of hypertension affect differently on people. Following are these types:

  • Primary hypertension: It comes from an unknown space and not necessarily mean it happened because of heart dysfunction.
  • Secondary hypertension: It is a type of hypertension that comes from the obstruction occurring in the renal system.
  • Isolated systolic hypertension: Commonly known as the problem of BP (Blood Pressure). It generally occurs in elderly people or people on or above the age of 55.
  • Neurogenic hypertension: it is a condition that causes a strapping stimulation of the nervous system that result in sudden excitement or anxiety of a person.

Now let us discuss the problem of high blood pressure through the eyes of Ayurveda. The excerpt of Ayurvedic texts says that the change in living status and dietary habits have added stress and strain in the lives that are affecting the livelihood of people in numerous ways. Though certain Ayurvedic medicines can help in prevention, such as:

  • Cardamom: It is a sweet and flavourful kitchen ingredient that acts as Ayurvedic medicine to combat the problem of hypertension with Ayurveda. Take a glass of fresh peach juice and add a pinch of cardamom with a teaspoon of coriander. Drink this juice once a day and you will have reduced blood pressure.
  • Cucumber: A watery fruit that is popularly known as a vegetable by many. It is abundant with nutritional values that help in reducing the blood pressure effectively. You can eat it as raw or in the form of a raita (cucumber mixed with yogurt).
  • Punarnava: It is a natural herb that heals multiple problems of health. It is rich in anti-inflammatory properties that reduce the effect of blood pressure on kidneys specifically. Punarnava, the name is self-explanatory that means reincarnation; it is a herb that rejuvenates the organs organically.
  • Garlic: A common staple that is used across the globe for its aroma and high-end flavour. It is an Ayurvedic medicine that reduces the problem of high blood pressure and is widely used in the Ayurvedic treatment for hypertension.
  • Ashwagandha: It is an Ayurvedic medicine for kidney disease that works with a mixture of Gotu Kala that reduces hypertension naturally.

As for kidney patients, hypertension can be a serious complication. It will compel the kidneys to put an extra force while filtering the blood. The forcible act may result in kidney failure at some point in life.

What can be the other preventive measures?

Prevention is better than cure. If you are not a patient of high blood pressure or even if you are then you can combat the problem by following easy simple things in your life, such as:

  • Adopt a healthy diet comprises of fruits, veggies, boiled or roasted meat, and unsaturated fat products.

  • Try to quit smoking
  • Eat less meat but more plant sources of foods
  • Cut back on sweets
  • Reduce sodium inclusion in your meals

So, this was all about the Ayurvedic management of hypertension. The bottom line answer to any disease management should only be Ayurveda. Karma Ayurveda Hospital is standing with the said belief since 1937 and has cured more than 4500 patients to date without the help of artificial processes. Hypertension can be a serious threat to the functioning of the heart and kidneys if continued untreated.
