Simple home remedies for Hypertension

Do you remember your family doctor when you were a child? Maybe you don't remember him that clearly as much as your homemade doctor, who had the cures for all our maladies – your dadi (grandmother).

Let's pay tribute to her healing wisdom with some useful home remedies for hypertension.

It's a fact that modern man is over-dependent on technology and is perpetually stressed to get more out of life. The truth is, in today's fast-paced world, it's not possible to avoid stress unless we live a life of seclusion. Therefore, our aim should be to handle stress the best way we can.

You might be juggling between different tasks - working a 9 to 5 job or running a business, looking after your kids at home and doing a dozen different things effectively. Stress can affect us in different ways – it could be work stress, physical stress or relationship stress. It won't be adverse to our health if we can manage day-to-day stress with wisdom. The key is not to give in to stress. In fact, if you can handle stress effectively it will help you to become stronger, more efficient and successful in life.

Our inability to handle stress and disconnect with the basic principles of natural living gives rise to innumerable disorders. Hypertension is one of them.

Uncontrolled high blood pressure over time can cause serious damages such as stroke, impaired vision, kidney damage, heart attack, congestive heart failure, vascular dementia, peripheral blood vessel disease and aortic aneurysm among others.

Symptoms of hypertension:

  • Headache in the morning, especially in the back of the head.
  • Stiffness in the neck muscles.
  • Heart palpitations.
  • Constant anxiety and fear.
  • Sleeping problems.
  • Unexpected body heat.

If you or any of your family members is suffering from hypertension, you're probably popping pills for relief. However, it is not a long-term solution to the problem. You must realize that this only alleviates the problem and does not provide a cure.

Don't worry here is Doctor Dadi with her timeless Ayurvedic home remedies. Read along to get some valuable tips to manage hypertension.

  • Make a juice of 3-4 garlic cloves, 10-12 basil leaves, and a small quantity of wheat grass. Have once a day.
  • Mix 1 teaspoon of onion juice with an equal amount of honey. Take once a day for 1 week. Upon noticing improvement, continue for several more days.
  • Keep clean potable water in a copper urn overnight. Have 3-4 glasses in the morning.
  • Chew 2-3 raw garlic cloves every day. Garlic slows down the pulse rate and balances the heart's rhythm.
  • Grind 4 basil leaves and 2 margosa (neem) leaves together with 4 teaspoons water. Take this mixture on an empty stomach in the morning with a cup of water.
  • Eat papaya for breakfast and nothing else for at least the next 2 hours. Continue this diet regimen for a month for improvement.
  • Have a glass of juice made of carrot, beetroot, cucumber and papaya in the morning.
