Causes of HYPERTENSION

The causes of high blood pressure are not always clear, but certain factors may increase the risk. They include:

  • Age more than 65
  • Overweight or obese
  • Relative with high blood pressure
  • Consuming excessive salt
  • Not having enough fruit and vegetables
  • Less exercise
  • Drinking excessive alcohol or coffee (or other caffeine-based drinks)
  • Smoking
  • Less sleep or disturbed sleep

As per Ayurveda, Avyayam – sedentary life style, Ativyavaya – overindulgence in sex, Guru – aharar or rich diet, Atibhojana – diet leading to obesity are the conditions that may lead to Dhamnipratichaya (atherosclerosis) and Dhamnikathinya (hardening of arteries) and lead to increased internal pressure in sira and dhamani.
