Blood Pressure

What is this disorder?
This involves both types of disorders, i.e., High Blood pressure and Low Blood pressure.  When it comes to treating low blood pressure modern medical science entirely focuses on the medical history of an individual and in the case of high blood pressure, the doctors prescribe certain tablets, on daily basis.   Ayurveda however, insists on the individual factor …… ʺWhy me? ʺ   This approach leads us to the root cause.  But before we discuss letʹs understand the simple definition of blood pressure.   ʺPressure exerted by blood on walls of blood vessels while flowing through it. ʺ  

Why me?
If the blood pressure is caused because some dysfunction of the kidneys, lungs, heart, brain or something treatment has to be designed to remove the basic cause of dysfunction.  However, in many cases, we find that despite apparent normal reports the person’s blood pressure is found on the higher side.  In view of this, we need to go to the root cause.  For example,

  • If the blood has high cholesterol and triglycerides which causes narrowing and stiffening of the blood vessels which causes resistance to blood flow and increases blood pressure.

  • If the arteries get contracted it is an upshot of addictions like smoking and alcohol or aging

  • When all the reports are normal, in simple terms, we can say that if the demand and supply do not match, it leads to blood pressure.

High blood pressure, in the case of most of the patients, is because of excessive thinking or jostling of too many unwanted, irrelevant, and/or negative thoughts.    The proportion, excessiveness, and nature of such thoughts vary from person to person, depending upon his birth month/season.  Ancient Ayurveda deals with this phenomenon to ferret out the root cause.   At Prakruti, we also keenly follow the principles of Ayurveda to make the life of a B.P.  patient medicine-free or “Drug-less”

How can you overcome it?
Once the basic cause is known right plan of individualized treatment is determined, which involves bringing change in approach towards life, suggesting a proper diet involving substantial use of green salads, sprouts, and so on to improve digestion and ultimately improve the viscosity of blood vis-à-vis blood circulation.  This is how the ʹdemand – supplyʹ is matched.  Similarly, we advise certain Ayurvedic medicines, some easy panchakarmas to be done at home, and certain measures for weight loss (if needed).  Then through residential treatment and panchakarmas at Prakruti, a patient can gradually get rid of his B.  P. tablet.

The journey towards healthy life

  • We request you to use the following google link and upload the necessary pathological reports and send the same to us.

  • We will study the same and our doctors will accord you an appointment for a direct clinical check-up according to your “Prakruti” or constitutional characteristics, as prescribed in the Ayurveda scriptures, or share with you the necessary information telephonically about your health characteristics and consult you about proper medication and lifestyle.

  • After direct check-ups or telephonic counseling the patients will be advised about medication, diet plan, and some household measures about panchakarma.

  • Booking is accepted for residential panchakarma treatment at Prakruti Ayurvedic Health Resort, after 8 days of medication.  After attending the residential panchakarma regimen the patients are advised about proper Ayurvedic medication and its dosage for the next 6 to 9 months.  Patients are also advised about the correct diet plan, DOs & DON’Ts, etc. Stay at a residential panchakarma camp varies from 2 days to 21 days, depending upon the nature & intensity of the disorder.

Salient features of Residential Panchakarma camp

Treatment for every patient is exclusively designed and individualized after a thorough study of his or her birth month and season in which he or she was born.  Accordingly, his “Prakruti” or constitutional attributes are studied. 

Similarly, other aspects such as the profession of the patient, his lifestyle, the root cause of the disorder,  time span and intensity of health issues, etc. are taken into consideration.    Accordingly, every day 13 – 15 panchakarma treatments are rendered and complete training is imparted to perform yog, pranayama, and meditation on regular basis.  The consulting doctors also suggest a proper diet plan and an ideal lifestyle.

Our approach to counter the B.P. disorder as per ayurveda involves thinning of blood, keeping the cholesterol and triglycerides in control, and ensuring proper elasticity and flexibility of blood vessels vis-à-vis blood circulation in order to strike balance between demand & supply.  This needs extensive study of the patient’s birth-month-related health attributes.  For example, if a patient is born in the month of December, it means he was conceived in the summer season.   Therefore, as per Ayurvedic research, we can assume that the person born in the month of December or in the winter so to speak, is generally an honest, forthright, and devoted kind of personality.  He may not be able to resist his hunger and might suffer from constipation.   Based on these general approximations his medicines for his panchakarma treatments like virechana, niruha-basti, anuvasan-basti, tailadhara/shirodhara/talam, massage, steam,  nasya,  gandusha,  anjan, mukhalep, padambhyanga,  karnapurana etc. are decided.  This is called birth-month related treatment process and individualized line of treatment.  Accordingly his diet plan, exercises,  yog and  pranayama regimen is set and with constant monitoring of his blood pressure, the dosage is gradually reduced, to  eventually to help him get rid of blood pressure.
