Hypertension high blood pressure Homeopathic treatment

An individual with successive blood pressure readings above 130/80 within a short duration needs to be examined and treated without delay. High blood pressure can initiate much early in life and most of the time goes unnoticed for many years. Blood pressure is the force of blood pushing against blood vessel walls. The heart pumps blood into the arteries, which carry the blood throughout the body. Blood pressure refers to the pressure within the arterial walls and adjusts according to the body's changeable need for amount of oxygen and nutrients. Hypertension is hazardous because it makes the heart work harder to pump blood to the body and it contributes to hardening of the arteries and further developing heart failure.

HYPERTENSION(High Blood Pressure) generally diagnosed on the basis of a persistently high blood pressure. Hypertension or high blood pressure is a chronic medical condition in which the systemic arterial blood pressure is elevated. It is the opposite of hypotension.

"A man's life may be said to be a gift of his blood pressure, just as Egypt is a gift of the Nile". So said Sir William Osler, an icon of modern medicine and the man said to be the most influential physician in history.

Sir Osler may be indeed right, as arterial pressure is essential for sustaining life, the most important factor which ensures that the circulation of blood reaches all the tissues in our body. At the same time, an elevated blood pressure can be most inimical to life, if persisting over a period of time.

Hypertension affects up to a quarter of the adult population. The prevalence depends on the age, racial composition and the criteria used to define the condition. In a white population, 20% of the adults in the age group 35 - 65 years have a diastolic blood pressure in the range 90 - 109 mm Hg, 4 - 5% have a range of 110 - 129 mm Hg, and 0.5% have blood pressure levels > 130 mm Hg. The prevalence is even higher in the non white population.

Causes of Hypertension / High Blood Pressure:


Traditionally, hypertension has been classified into essential2 or primary, where there is no evident cause, and secondary, where there is an evident anatomical, pathological or biochemical abnormality. But this view of essential hypertension is increasingly being challenged with the recognition of constitutional, dietary and environmental factors in its pathogenesis.

Essential hypertension is the commonest among the causes of hypertension, constituting up to 95% of the cases. Among the secondary causes, renal diseases account for the majority of cases. A useful classification is given below

  • Hereditary.
  • Lack of physical activity, improper diet, smoking and alcohol.
  • Overweight.
  • Stress.
  • Old age.
  • Heavy metal toxicity.
  • Food sensitivities.
  • Hyper calcemia (high calcium levels).
  • Hormonal changes.
  • Kidney, adrenal (gland above the kidney) and thyroid diseases.
  • Certain medications like birth control pills, antidepressants, steroids, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and many more.

Symptoms Of High Blood Pressure Homeopathic


Classification of Hypertension / High Blood Pressure:


It is classified as either primary (essential) or secondary. About 90 to “95% of cases are termed "primary hypertension", which refers to high blood pressure for which no medical cause can be found .The remaining 5 to 10% of cases (Secondary hypertension) are caused by other conditions that affect the kidneys, arteries, heart, or endocrine system(diabetes).

Persistent hypertension is one of the risk factors for stroke, myocardial infarction, heart failure and arterial aneurysm, and is a leading cause of chronic kidney failure. Moderate elevation of arterial blood pressure leads to shortened life expectancy. Dietary and lifestyle changes can improve blood pressure control and decrease the risk of associated health complications, although drug treatment may prove necessary in patients for whom lifestyle changes prove ineffective or insufficient

Hypertension chronic lead to enlarged heart


Normal blood pressure less than 120/80

 Pre-hypertension 120-139/ 80-89

 High blood pressure (stage 1) 140-159/90-99

 High blood pressure (stage 2) higher than 160/100

 Usually this requires three separate sphygmomanometer  measurements at least one week apart. The heart pumps blood into the arteries with enough force to push blood to the far reaches of each organ from the top of the head to the bottom of the feet. Blood pressure can be defined as the pressure of blood on the walls of the arteries as it circulates through the body. Blood pressure is highest as its leaves the heart through the aorta and gradually decreases as it enters smaller and smaller blood vessels (arteries, arterioles, and capillaries). Blood returns in the veins leading to the heart, aided by gravity and muscle contraction. 

 Hypertension is the medical term for high blood pressure. It is known as the "silent killer" since it has no initial symptoms but can lead to long-term disease and complications..

Homoeopathic Treatment Hypertension /High Blood Pressure


Constitutional Homeopathic treatment is an incomparable option to treat Hypertension. Homeopathic remedies dilate the blood vessels and increase the amount of blood flow to the kidneys, thereby, increasing urination and lowering blood pressure. Homeopathic remedies promote your entire circulatory system, relax and increase the elasticity of arteries, allowing blood to flow with less pressure, hence, lowering blood pressure naturally, balancing the blood flow and relieving the stress so you can calm down. Based on the classical approach of Homeopathy a Homeopathic practitioner looks at the person holistically, that is mind, body and emotion together and not just at the symptoms of the illness.

Ideally, constitutional treatment is themost reliable and effective to treat highblood pressure. But where this is not pos-sible, we use Arsenicum album, Phosphorus,Natrum muriaticum, Lachesis and Glonoineas clinical remediess.

These remedies may also be usefulfor “layer” prescribing in hypertensivepatients, to prepare the patient and openup the constitution. Like removing thetop layers of an onion, such remediespave the way for further action and helpus arrive at the constitutional stage.

DR Makkarresearched and proven homeopathic treatment for  Hypertension /High Blood Pressure.Homeopathy is natural, safe and an effective treatment option for Hypertension /High Blood Pressure relief,cure and management.

In my clinical experience we can say Homeopathy can play major role in management of essential or secondary hypertension. Timely administered homeopathy medicines can assist in preventing further complications of condition definitely & sometimes in emergency saves life of patients. Here need to invidulise case carefully in which understanding of patient mentally ,socially & physically by individulising patient .Life-style modification with moderate exercise, weight reduction, salt restriction can enhance the benefits of homeopathy.Use of low sodium salts now available in market also help in managing the case properly.  

In our experience, early cases of hypertension respond to homeopathy much better than those late cases who are already on some antihypertensive medicines for long period of time. Again, homeopathy is not best suited during the acute hypertensive crisis
