About Blood Pressure
Blood pressure is the measure of the force of blood pushing against blood vessel walls. The heart pumps blood into the arteries (blood vessels), which carry the blood throughout the body. High blood pressure, also called hypertension, is known as ‘Rakta Gata Vata’ in Ayurveda. Normal blood pressure is less than 120 over 80.The causes for BP includes smoking, lack of physical activity, too much salt in the diet, alcohol consumption, stress, older age, genetics, thyroid disorders, etc.The symptoms are headache, dizziness, blurred vision, nausea, vomiting, chest pain, shortness of breath. The Ayurvedic line of treatment for hypertension is aimed at identifying the root cause and then eradicates the problem from its roots. Ayurvedic herbal combinations lower stress and enhance the metabolic health through effective natural therapies for high blood pressure, as is yoga therapy specifically targeted towards calming mind and body and reducing blood pressure naturally.
