Ayurveda and Blood Pressure

According to Ayurveda, blood pressure involves all the doshas, the heart and the blood vessels. We can see signs and symptoms of derangement of vatadosha (mainly that of “vyanvayu”) and pita dosha in hypertension and thus both these doshas need to be treated in people suffering from these ailments.

Ayurveda can play a vital role in reducing hypertension (blood pressure) not just through medication but also through a lifestyle change. Ayurveda recommendsone lead a relaxed lifestyle without the feelings of jealousy, hatred, judgment, anger stress and insecurity. Unfortunately, human tendency leads to instant gratification and thus, urban consumers have preferred chemicals that give short-term relief. This seems easier to follow because of our urban, quick paced and “on the go” lifestyle. But, it must be noted that we can only get temporary relief from blood pressure, and also not notice how harmful the side effects of these drugs are.
