LOW BLOOD PRESSURE (HYPOTENSION)




Low blood pressure, the most avoided medical condition I find in my daily practice, and i say avoided because i find people ,so used to and accustomed to it, that they adjust and accept it in daily life without doing anything about it. 
Hypotension or low blood pressure is a state of condition in which the force with with the heart pumps blood to the walls of arteries reduces.
The normal blood pressure is 120/80 mmHg but in hypotension it is well below 90/60mmhg.
Causes-
Reduced blood volume- Due to haemorrhage, loss of blood or vital fluids, decreased fluids intake as in starvation or fasts.
Anemia and nutritional deficiencies.
Hormonal changes.
Some heart problems like arrythmias, valvular diseases etc
Pregnancy.
Over and misuse of medicines.
Allergies.
Prolonged bed rest.

Signs/Symptoms-
Dizziness/lightheadedness.
Fainting (in very low blood pressure)

Loss of vision, Fatigue/dullness, loss of consciosness (severe cases)
Shock (emergency situation needing urgent medical attention) in case of weak pulse, rapid heartbeat,confusion and rapid shallow breathing.

Treatment-
Yoga (Boat pose, fish pose, chair pose, surya namaskar, camel cat pose, triangle pose etc) are highly helpful but with consultation of a yoga teacher only.
A morning dose of caffeine(coffee) is found useful. Consult your doctor before making it a habit.
Add electrolytes to diet. Add salt to daily diet as it has sodium that will help improve blood pressure.
Avoid alcoholic beverages.
Drink plenty of water.
Crossing legs while sitting seems to help in many cases.
Eat small and frequent meals.

Avoid lifting heavy weights.
Do not stand up at one place for long.
Slightly raise the head rest of your bed.
Regular exercise.

Diet-
Limit use of carbohydrates like rice, pasta, bread and potatoes.
Eat small portions over small intervals of time over the day.
Fruits like pineapple, papaya, apples, nuts, green leafy vegetables like spinach, whole grains .
BASIL - TULSI, a wonder food, Basil extract made from 10-15 leaves in water to be drunk every day.
SALT- To immediately control the situation, a glass water with a spoon of salt.

HOMEOPATHY IN LOW BLOOD PRESSURE-
Homeopathy works wonders in cases of low blood pressure by imrpoving the vital power and immunity of the patient and also treating the underlying physical causes of low BP. 
Lycopodium, Gloninum, Natrum mur, Gelsemium, Viscum Album, China, Ferrum metallicum , Baryta mur are few drugs that do wonders in my clinical practice. Proper case taking, individualisation and constituitional approach has always worked for me in treating patients.Never do self medication. WE ARE JUST A PHONE CALL AWAY.
