Here is the perfect remedy to help you overcome your snags!!!
The heart is one of the most essential organs. Just take a closer look at the bone and tissue that form a virtual castle around it in the thoracic cavity. It should come as no surprise that our hearts are so physically protective, given that we simply cannot survive without them.
Physical defence, though, isn't always sufficient to maintain the health of our emotions. In actuality, cardiovascular disease is today's number one killer of both men and women in India. High blood pressure is one of the most important risk factors for cardiovascular disease.
Many among us might be having constant fluctuations in our blood pressure levels, a condition called hypertension. A clinical condition where the heart needs to pump blood with more force to circulate blood as a result of various factors that reduce the normal flow of blood is called hypertension.
What is High Blood Pressure or Hypertension?
The arteries in the body are impacted by the prevalent condition of high blood pressure. Additionally known as "hypertension," The blood's constant pressure against the artery walls is too high if you have high blood pressure. To pump blood, the heart has to work harder.
Millimeters of mercury are used to measure blood pressure (mm Hg). A blood pressure measurement of 130/80 mm Hg or greater is generally regarded as hypertension.
Symptoms of High Blood Pressure
Most often, there are no specific symptoms for elevated blood pressure. Only when the value is way too high, you may experience:
- Constant Headaches
- Shortness of breath
- Episodes of Nasal bleeding
Although these symptoms are not specific to hypertension and can only occur if the blood pressure reaches way above the normal range.
What causes High Blood Pressure?
Blood pressure is determined by two things: the amount of blood the heart pumps and how hard it is for the blood to move through the arteries. The more blood the heart pumps and the narrower the arteries, the higher the blood pressure.
• Deposition of LDL on the walls of arteries called is atherosclerosis
• Adrenal gland tumors
• Congenital heart diseases
• Kidney dysfunctions
Ayurvedic understanding of Blood Pressure
A variety of the body's pathways called Srotus depend on the heart, which is the key seat (main site) of the three doshas: vata, pitta, kapha, and ojas (the subtle essence of energy and the coefficient of immunity).
The subtle body, which extends far beyond the physical form and is more energetic and permeates and influences the physical body, is closely integrated with the heart. As a result, the heart is a crucial junction for nadi (subtle body) pathways, and it is also closely associated with the heart chakra, a seat of energy.
The cardiovascular system is mainly regulated by the Pitta and Vata entities. The accumulation of unwanted cholesterol on the artery lumen may be interpreted as a vitiated Kapha entity.
Thus, Ayurveda accounts for methods to overcome these physiological or pathological fluctuations within the doshas to cure elevated blood pressure.
Hemp and Regulation of Blood Pressure
Hemp has a direct influence on our heart health. A recent study conducted on the effect of hemp on resting BP concluded that a single administration of hemp alone had a great effect on regulating blood pressure.
While looking at this concept through Ayurveda, hemp has sukshma guna (penetrating action), which helps to reach the minute channels of the body, and its hot potency helps to remove the accumulation of kapha within the vessels. Thus, regulating the increased blood pressure.
