Ayurvedic medication for hypertension

Hypertension is such a condition where the force of blood becomes too high against the artery walls. This is mainly characterised by the high blood pressure and an individual is deemed to be a hypertension patient when the blood pressure level in the body is above 140/90. Sometimes, in severe cases the pressure can also shoot up to 180/120 and in those cases, one needs some immediate medical help.

This high blood pressure has no apparent symptoms and as a result they are not diagnosed quickly and when they are diagnosed much later, then it becomes a very difficult situation. But yes, one can always keep the high blood pressure level in control by following some strict diet like eating less salty food and taking proper medication. One can also use Ayurvedic medication for hypertension which can effectively bring the blood pressure level down in a human body.

It is said that according to Ayurveda there are mainly 3 doshas in the human body. They are Pitta, Vama and Kapha. If these 3 things are in a perfect state and balance then the body remains disease free. But an irregular pattern of these 3 things can lead to the increased level of blood pressure.
