High blood pressure is an important risk factor for heart disease and affects about one in ten people. Contrary to popular opinion, high blood pressure (hypertension) rarely gives rise to symptoms and sufferers are therefor unaware that they may have a problem-so regular blood pressure checks are important

Salt in the diet basically comes in to forms; salt we add during cooking or at the table, and salt already present in food, usually processed. To make valuable reductions in your intake, consider these suggestions:
  • To reduce salt consumption by 30 per cent, don’t add salt during cooking or at the table.
  • To reduce salt consumption by 60 per cent, don’t add salt during cooking or at the table or eat processed foods with salt added.
  • Try some of the alternative flavourings suggested.
If you Drink Alcoholic Beverages, do so in Moderation: Some research has suggested that moderate drinking (no more than one drink per day for women) is associated with a lower risk for heart disease in some individuals. This does not mean that you should start drinking or increase alcohol consumption since there are other risks associated with alcohol consumption.

Measurement of Blood Pressure
There must be enough pressure in the circulatory system to supply blood to each of the millions and millions of cells in the body for their nourishment. Blood pressure is measured by an instrument called sphygmomanometer. One type of this consists of a gauge filled with mercury, a rubber cuff into which air can be pumped and a hollow rubber ball to pump air.

In order to measure blood pressure the cuff is wound round the upper arm and the stethoscope is put below the cuff over the artery to hear the pulsation of blood passing through it. Air is pumped into the cuff using the rubber ball. When sufficient air has been pumped into the cuff it will press the artery and will stop the flow of the blood in the artery. The pressure is gradually released and the persons taking blood pressure measurement in the gauge will listen through measurement in the gauge will listen through the stethoscope for the sound of the pulse in the artery. This is the systolic pressure. It is the pressure when the heart is contracting or is in the pumping phase. A second reading will be taken by releasing more air till the sound disappears. This is called diastolic pressure or pressure when the heart is relaxing. The recording is written 130/80 mm Hg is mercury), the upper figure denoting systolic pressure and the lower, diastolic pressure.

Homoeopathy and Hypertension
Homoeopathic treatment establishes cure by reinforcing body’s own natural healing capacity to restore health and harmony in the body and mind. High blood pressure can thus be well controlled by homoeopathic medicines. If started on time, one might not need allopathic antihypertensive drugs at all. Here, we give the names of a few of the homoeopathic medicines that can be used for treating high blood pressure.

Baryta Mur. 3x: It is a good remedy for high blood presure of the aged. There is increased tension of the pulse. Systolic is high in comparison with diastolic pressure which is low.

Cactus: Hypertension with heart trouble, with a feeling of constriction in the region of heart and pain.

Crataegus Oxy. Q, Passiflora Q, Rauwolfia Q: Take five drops each of these three medicines in a little water thrice daily and on the next day take the following (described below) treatment. These two treatments are to be taken on alternate days.

Ferrum Phos. 6x, Calcarea Phos. 6x, Kalium Mur. 6x: Two grains of each (total 6 grains) must be taken thrice daily for a day and on the next day, the mixture described above should be taken. And it should be repeated as stated above. This treatment will control and cure most of the recent cases. Even chronic cases are much benefited. It takes 15 days to 3 months for results. Blood pressuer should be measured every week and it should not be allowed to fall much below the normal.
