WHAT IS HYPERTENSION?

High blood pressure (Hypertension) is a very common and serious medical condition.1, 2 High blood pressure is the main reason for around 50% of deaths in patients with brain attack/stroke and 24% of heart disease deaths in India.3

Hypertension simply means that the force of the blood pumping through the arteriesĀ is too strong. The blood pressure goes up when the blood pushes harder against the walls of the arteries. It is normal to have high blood pressure for short period of time, but when the pressure stays high for most of the time, it leads to serious health problems.2

According to Ayurveda, heart is the seat of consciousness. Therefore, elevated blood pressure indicates a crisis of consciousness, feeling and identity. Dysfunction of Vata and Pitta doshas and vitiation Rasa, Rakta & Medovaha srotasa are the main causes for hypertension. Therefore, Ayurvedic treatment of hypertension mainly involves balancing of these two doshas and cleansing these channels.4
