Hypertension: Homeopathic Approach

Homeopathic Treatment for Hypertension

Hypertension is a medical condition in which an increase in blood pressure exceeds the normal range, and this increase tends to be more prominent as a person advances in age. The blood pressure is considered high at 140/90 or higher. Hypertension requires urgent medical attention, as failure could lead to complications such as heart disease, stroke, kidney failure, and other deadly diseases.

Hypertension is a common condition, and the cause is not too precise, although many cases are believed to be related to hereditary and genetic factors. Other factors such as age, consumption of alcohol, smoking, obesity, the presence of high cholesterol in the body, large salt intake, and other ways of life can increase the risk of having hypertension, and these are regarded as primary hypertension. Secondary hypertension, which is less common, is a result of certain diseases in the body that lead to high blood pressure.


Causes of high blood pressure

The arterioles, which are small blood vessels connected to the arteries, allow the free flow of blood through them; these increase the blood pressure, putting the heart under severe work and stress.  The heart’s blood flow rate, the arteries’ size, and their condition all affect blood pressure. Other factors that affect blood pressure include salt content in the body, the condition of the kidneys, the condition of the blood vessels, the volume of water in the body, and the state of hormones in the body.

Primary hypertension has no definite cause except genetic and environmental factors, and it accounts for 95% of cases. Secondary hypertension is brought on by a problem with the kidneys, like renal failure, Cushing’s syndrome, adrenal gland tumors, glomerulonephritis, renal vascular obstruction or narrowing, oral contraceptives, periarteritis nodose, hemolytic-uremic syndrome, retroperitoneal fibrosis, radiation enteritis, Henoch-Schonlein purpura, Wilms’ tumor, or the use of medicines, drugs, or chemicals.

Signs and symptoms of high blood pressure

Hypertension has no visible symptoms. There could be an occasional headache, but a severe headache is a sign of dangerously high blood pressure and requires urgent attention from a doctor. Noticeable signs are tiredness, ear noise or buzzing, confusion, nosebleeds, an irregular heartbeat, angina-like chest pain, vision changes, blood in the urine, and heart failure.

Homeopathic Treatment for Hypertension

Treating hypertension requires treatment at the root of the disease, and this requires proper planning. Homeopathic treatment is the best form of treatment for hypertension because it deals with the genetic tendency. Since increased blood pressure is not the root of the problem but an aftermath of some disorders in the body, homeopathy addresses the disease that leads to primary hypertension.

Homeopathic treatment of hypertension aims to lower the blood pressure to a safe level to prevent heart disease. In the case of obesity in a hypertensive patient, an independent weight loss program may be required. Obesity increases the blood pressure of its sufferers.
