BoooBooo : Hypertension And High Blood Pressure

A blood pressure of 140/90 or higher is considered high blood pressure. Both numbers are important. If one or both numbers are usually high, you have high blood pressure. If you are being treated for high blood pressure, you still have high blood pressure even if you have repeated readings in the normal range.

Hypertension occurs when arterioles, small blood vessels that branch off from the arteries, become constricted making it difficult for blood to pass through them. As a result, blood pressure rises causing your heart to work harder. If your blood pressure at rest stays at 140/90 or more, you may have hypertension.

Blood pressure is determined by the amount of blood pumped by the heart, and the size and condition of the arteries. Many other factors can affect blood pressure, including volume of water in the body; salt content of the body; condition of the kidneys, nervous system, or blood vessels; and levels of various hormones in the body.

'Essential' hypertension has no identifiable cause. It may have genetic factors and environmental factors, such as salt intake or others. Essential hypertension comprises over 95% of all high blood pressure.

'Secondary' hypertension is high blood pressure caused by another disorder. This may include:

adrenal gland tumors
Cushing's syndrome
kidney disorders
glomerulonephritis (inflammation of kidneys)
renal vascular obstruction or narrowing
renal failure
use of medications, drugs, or other chemicals
oral contraceptives
hemolytic-uremic syndrome
Henoch-Schonlein purpura
periarteritis nodosa
radiation enteritis
retroperitoneal fibrosis
Wilms' tumor
other disorders

Hypertension / High Blood Pressure - SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS

Usually, no symptoms are present. Occasionally, you may experience a mild headache. If your headache is severe, or if you experience any of the symptoms below, you must be seen by a doctor right away. These may be a sign of dangerously high blood pressure (called malignant hypertension) or a complication from high blood pressure.

- tiredness
- confusion
- vision changes
- angina-like chest pain (crushing chest pain)
- heart failure
- blood in urine
- nosebleed
- irregular heartbeat
- ear noise or buzzing

Hypertension / High Blood Pressure - Homeopathy Treatment & Homeopathic Remedies
Raised blood pressure is not a disease in itself. It is just a sign of some underlying disorder. Homeopathy offers good prognosis for cases of essential hypertension. The treatment is based upon the cause and the totality of the case.

Hypertension / High Blood Pressure - CONVENTIONAL TREATMENT

Medications may include diuretics, beta-blockers, calcium channel blockers, angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors, angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs), or alpha blockers. Medications such as hydralazine, minoxidil, diazoxide, or nitroprusside may be required if the blood pressure is very high.

Hypertension / High Blood Pressure - WHAT ELSE CAN I DO?

Lifestyle changes may help control high blood pressure:

Lose weight if you are overweight. Excess weight adds to strain on the heart. In some cases, weight loss may be the only treatment needed.

Exercise to help your heart.
Adjust your diet as needed. Decrease fat and sodium -- salt, MSG, and baking soda all contain sodium. Increase fruits, vegetables, and fiber.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Thanks BoooBooo.

Drink lot of Green tea and take Kali Phos 6x for High BP.

The body needs Sodium - Potassium balance.

Kali >>> is Potassium.

High BP occurs when the Sodium level increases in the body vs. Potassium.

To Boo

You may like to know that I have had some success in treating Hypertension with 2 remedies.

Arnica 30c in the Wet dose taken twice daily

Nat Mur 6x dose 2 tablets taken 3 times daily.

Since you are already taking Arnica 6c you can continue with this potency and add the Nat Mur 6x and report your response in a week.

As you are aware, some classical homeopaths have often criticized me for my approach to Homeopathic healing but the fact is that Joepathy seems to work in a manner that cannot be equated by classical homeopathy.

Great Joe...I think you are doing an execellent srvice to the community. This all will sure help a lot of people.

Dear Joe...Natrum Mur 30c acts better than 6X for hypertension...where it is indicated. (In my experience).

You may try. It clears constipation too.

Best regards,

Natrum Mur is indicated ...where the individual is anemic and emaciated in the neck. (You can see a dimple in the middle of the neck or the entire neck hanging in folds).

There area headaches from sunrise to sunset etc. Constipation. Long standing grief.

Correct diagnosis Doc.

Dr. Akram says :'I have seen a case of diabetes with hypertension where Natrum Muriaticum 200C was used though infrequently yet the symptoms gradually worsened. After every dose the blood pressure fell by some points but returned to previous or slightly higher value after a day or two. Higher value of blood pressure was in fact due to excess of cold in the body, which could not be understood at that time. In fact, the person needed warmth but 200C did the opposite. Even though the apparatus indicated high blood pressure, that was a case for lower potency of Natrum Muriaticum, not 200C. Lower potency would have gradually given warmth to the body and helped in regaining elasticity of the blood vessels and ultimately brought the blood pressure down. When the mistake was realized, it was already too late. This experience became handy in treating other similar cases. So don't take the choice of potency too easy and be very, very careful in using Natrum Muriaticum for hypertension. In certain circumstances its frequent repetition might cause serious complications. Repeat it only when absolutely essential and be sure of what results you wish to achieve. - See more at: http://www.homeopathy.com.pk/articles/using-natrum-muriaticu....
