Blood Pressure

Blood Pressure is the force exerted by the blood against the walls of the arteries as the heart pumps it around the body. It’s a vital aspect of cardiovascular health. High blood pressure, or hypertension, is prevalent globally and can significantly impact well-being if left unmanaged.

Prevalence :

High blood pressure affects a substantial portion of the adult population worldwide. It’s a major risk factor for heart disease, stroke, and other serious health conditions.

Common Symptoms:

1. Most people with hypertension don’t feel any symptoms. Very high blood pressures can cause headaches, blurred vision, chest pain and other symptoms. 

2. Checking your blood pressure is the best way to know if you have high blood pressure. If hypertension isn’t treated, it can cause other health conditions like kidney disease, heart disease and stroke.

3. Shirodhara: Shirodhara is a therapeutic technique where warm oil is poured in a continuous stream onto the forehead.

4. Nasya: Nasya involves the administration of herbal oils or powders through the nostrils. This practice is thought to clear the nasal passages and support respiratory health, which may be relevant to blood pressure management.

5. Abhyanga (Oil Massage): Abhyanga involves a full-body massage with warm oil. This practice is thought to have a calming effect on the nervous system, potentially helping to reduce stress and promote relaxation.
