Ayurvedic Understanding of Hypertension/High Blood Pressure!

Blood pressure or hypertension is one of the most commonly found issues these days. The issues of hypertension are found in people across different age groups but, the middle-aged population is the one that gets affected quite a lot amongst all the others.

Blood pressure generally occurs due to an unhealthy lifestyle and the modern ways of living are seriously impacting the lives of people in a negative manner as it does not involve any physical activities.

With the advancement in science and technology people now have access to all the information including medical science. As the saying goes, “Half knowledge is always dangerous”, getting to know about Blood Pressure in bits and pieces from the internet can make the anxiety attacks even worse.

The diagnosis and the medicines for Blood pressure are generally recorded and recommended keeping the systolic and the diastolic pressures in the allopathic line of treatment whereas the Ayurvedic practitioners in Sydney say that hypertension or blood pressure cannot be treated unless the lifestyle of a person changes.

Despite having the proper systolic and the Diastolic readings people still have issues related to their health. Well, this directly indicates that a person cannot be called healthy just by keeping all the readings under control. There are certain changes that are to be made in order to stay healthy.

Keeping this in mind there are certain things that Ayurvedic doctors do in order to treat patients with hypertension and Blood Pressure complaints.

  • Understanding the term Dyslipidemia

There are two kinds of HTNs and they are the Primary and the secondary HTNs. The first and foremost thing that an Ayurvedic doctor would do is to dig deeper and get to know the root cause of the existing condition by comparing it with the HTN.

They would not just go by the superficial conditions and start with the treatment. Instead, they would work closely with the patients and try to balance the body out by using the techniques involved in Ayurvedic science.

HTN would only be used as an indicator to understand the new diseases and the doctor would follow their own way of treatment as mentioned in the traditional Ayurvedic treatment.

  • They work on the doshas

The science of Ayurveda is based on the three doshas and it is said that balancing these doshas in the body would keep a person healthy. The vata, Kapha, and pitta doshas are the three doshas. The doctor tries to understand the doshas that are causing hypertension in the body using certain methodologies and tries to bring it under control.

Once this dosha is under control the condition of Blood Pressure or blood pressure would automatically be controlled too. The readings on the BP meter would also start reading normally as well.

  • They do not treat because the patient is worried

None of the Ayurvedic doctors start their treatment because the patient is panicking. They would always do a thorough study of the symptoms, the cause and then suggest the course of treatment to anybody who goes to them with blood pressure complaints.

  • The knowledge on Sampraptis

Every Ayurvedic practitioner would understand the happenings of Sampraptis in the body of the patient and this would enable them to even understand the duration of the treatment for BP and hypertension to be administered.

They would also be able to interpret the stages from when the treatment should actually start, continue and end to get the BP under control. Hence, they would be able to easily all the questions that a patient has regarding their condition.

  • They need not understand the Sampraptis

As already mentioned Sampraptis are just indicators of the illness that the person is suffering from. Generally, most of the Ayurvedic practitioners would be able to diagnose the problem on their own and can start off with the Ayurveda treatment Sydney as mentioned in the traditional Ayurvedic science.

The symptoms that the patient is going through can be the greatest leads for starting the treatment. Well, any doctor with experience would be able to recognize if the patient is ill or healthy just by looking at their faces.

  • Everything is largely dependent on the food

Ayurvedic Science speaks largely on food intake. The kind of food that we eat decides our health. We must understand the nature of the body first before we try and analyze the diseases. Food can impact the human body either positively or negatively.

Exactly like this the HTN also gets affected. HTN involves the heart, blood vessels, and blood. If any of these three things fall out of balance, a person might start experiencing fatigue, tiredness, sporadic or rapid heartbeats, etc… this condition is thus termed hypertension or Blood Pressure.

Well, this is how Ayurvedic Science interprets and treats the condition of Hypertension or blood pressure.
