Home Remedy For Blood Pressure Control

Low blood pressure condition is also known as hypotension, when a person has abnormally low blood pressure. Because of that, activity of blood-vessels decreases, blood-circulation becomes slower and general tonicity of the whole body becomes very low. If signs of hypotension are very slight, usually no need of serious treatment arises. Though the patient should be very careful and heedful as low blood pressure can cause other heart and neural disorders. Severe hypotension is a very dangerous condition and must be treated at once.

Low blood pressure may be caused by heart-diseases or by medicines, such as anaesthetics, diuretics, antidepressants or others. Sometimes it occurs during pregnancy (the first and second trimesters). BP may also drop because of hormone problems. It can even happen for those, who are sick with anemia or diabetes.

Archetypal symptoms of hypotension are general weakness, fatigue, dizziness, and fainting. Face of the patient becomes very pale. Eyesight gets blurred. One feels sleepy and confused.

Useful herbs: People who are ill with cardiovascular diseases usually are more willing to take medicines. You should consider the fact, that your body may not tolerate it, so be careful. Pregnant women should not use even herbal remedies without asking a doctor. However, herbal remedies are one of the best solutions while treating hypotension. They help a lot and rarely have side effects -

1. Indian spikenard: It is a good stimulant for heart and in such a way it helps to increase blood pressure and thus is obviously useful for people who are suffering from hypotension.

2. Cinnamon: This natural herb is well known for its warming effect. Indeed, cinnamon stimulates all the body. It regulates blood pressure, also improves digestion and relieves spasms too.

3. Ginger: Root of this herb also has many valuable properties. It normalizes both high and low blood pressures and cures heart diseases.

4. Coffee: Cup of this drink can help you a lot, make your BP higher and maintain it for some time. It is a really strong stimulant for the whole body.

5. Tumeric: Try using turmeric, it also maintains normal BP. Tumeric being an appetizer; improves digestive functions as well metabolism and is really beneficial.

6. Hawthorn berry: You also may know it as the mayflower. It increases the blood flow, extends the blood-vessels, strengthens the heart muscle.

  5. QUESTION:
    I need some suggestions for asthma control.?
    I have what some might call seasonal asthma. It usually only affects me in the winter, or in the summer when I am around campfire. I got bronchitis this past October and since then, my asthma has been out of control. I have been prescribed Advair in the past and still have an open prescription for it but we lost our medical insurance and it is $ 250 for the advair, so I am trying to get by with just my albuterol inhaler. Lately, I am waking up during the night wheezing, having severe coughing bouts and using my inhaler way more than I should be which makes me shaky and sometimes get mild chest pain. I know my best bet is to go see my doctor but I can't afford a $ 300 office call, my husband is laid off and we only have my income and the small amount he gets from unemployment. I don't qualifiy for any kind of assistance and the one medical clinic we have in town that charges on a sliding fee scale says we don't qualify, they don't go by the fact that he is laid off right now, they go by what he makes when he is actually working. We recently found black mold in our house and are trying to get rid of it, but my asthma doesn't only bother me at home, it bothers me 24/7 no matter where I am. I guess what I am looking for are some home remedies or any suggestions of anything else I can do. I am 41 years old, I do sit at a desk all day at work, but I exercise at home, I not overweight and I the only other health issue I have in high blood pressure (hereditary). Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you.

    • ANSWER:
      Go to www.pparx.org.

      It's a starting point for program that help with some or all of the costs of medicines.

      Failing that, call your doctor's nurse. Explain to her that the advair worked well, but costs too much.
      See if the doctor can write for a couple of replacements inhalers that might be cheaper.

      Good luck.

  6. QUESTION:
    URGENT!!!! Should I go to the ER?
    I was in macy's shopping with my mom and then my nose started to bleed.

    I didn't do ANYTHING. At all. I just felt something and then my nose felt wet, I knew I was bleeding, so I just covered it with my hand. I sat down at a makeup counter and it started bleeding sooo fast. Then the other nostril started bleeding, and shortly after that the blood started dripping down my throat with no control. I would not be exaggerating it I said that it bled for 10 minutes+.

    Then after that, I wanted to go home, and so my mom got a wheelchair because I felt faint and lightheaded. I'm not afraid of blood in any way, so I know it wasn't that.

    While my mom was getting the car and I was still sitting in the wheelchair, I spat out some GIANT clot out of my mouth that was at the least the size of a tablespoon. I can feel another clot forming in my throat. Since then, the bleeding in my nose has stopped but I still feel a little lightheaded.

    I do not have a cold, my nose wasn't stuffy, nothing like that.
    I have not been taking ibuprofen at all, the last pill I took was an aleve 3 days ago.
    I haven't been picking.
    Haven't been punched in the face.

    The only thing that my mom could think of is that I drank a whole bottle of Fanta Orange before that happened and we ate chinese food. Perhaps the caffeine made my blood pressure shoot up or something and made my nose bleed. But I honestly couldn't tell where the blood was coming from.

    Is there any home remedy for this, and could someone please tell me why this happened? And should I see a doctor?

  11. QUESTION:
    Need suggestions to quit smoking, please read details?
    Okay, I've known for years that I need to quit smoking and this year I finally got to the point that I WANTED to quit. I know what I'm doing to my body by smoking, and I really, really want to quit. But I'm having some serious problems with it. It's a long story, but here's what's happened:

    In September, I decided to quit cold turkey. I set a date, told my friends and had lots of support. I quit on my quit date and was surprised at how easy it was to fight the cravings. (Well, it wasn't EASY, but it wasn't nearly as bad as I feared) For two weeks, I did great, didn't smoke at all and although I felt a little bad, I managed to push through it. And then I started having dizzy spells. They got so bad that I began fainting and I went to the doctor. He said that my blood pressure was dropping and that I shouldn't have tried to quit smoking cold turkey. He suggested that I try nicotine patches. Since I smoke less than a pack a day, I got the lowest dose patch and tried it. I developed a headache, nausea and the jitters. I got to the point that I couldn't eat because of it (and I'm hypoglycemic so I HAVE to eat regularly) so I took off the patch and started smoking again. I did some research on techniques to quit smoking and got really interested in Chantix. I went to the doctor to see about getting it, but he said I wasn't a good candidate. (But he didn't say why?)

    At that point, even though my doctor told me not to, I tried to quit cold turkey again. And again, got the dizzy spells with fainting, but this time I also got this weird gagging reflex that got so bad, I couldn't put anything in my mouth without gagging. I could drink liquids fine, but anytime a piece of food touched my tongue, I would start gagging and couldn't swallow it. I started smoking again, just because I knew that it would stop these symptoms, and after a week they did stop completely.

    So, I have another appointment with my doctor in two weeks to talk about what else I can try. At this point, I am trying to cut down, when I want a cigarette, I'm only taking a few puffs and putting it out instead of smoking the whole thing. But I don't think that I can actually quit this way, I've tried before and would go back and forth from five cigarettes a day back up to ten, down to five, repeat endlessly.

    So, my question is:
    Any suggestions to aid quitting? Home remedies, etc? Any ideas of how to keep my blood pressure up and to reduce the gagging feeling so I can try cold turkey again? Because I actually think I could quit cold turkey if I could control those two things. Also, I have TMJ and absolutely, positively CANNOT use nicotine gum.

    Any help is greatly appreciated, I am at my wit's end. Now that I actually want to quit, it seems that everything is fighting me and I'm getting very discouraged.
    I just wanted to say that I ran both the links that are in the answers below through my virus software's site search and checked it through yahoo search. Neither of them recognize the domain as existing, so I'd suggest not clicking on the links.
    I asked my doctor about my blood pressure dropping and he dismissed my concern saying that it was a "not common, but not unheard of" side effect of quitting smoking. I have talked to others who quit and experienced some dizziness, but not to the point of fainting, so I don't know. I do know that I have a history of having strange reactions. If it gives most people a headache, I will run a fever. If it makes most people sleepy, I will be bouncing off the walls hyper. I have so many weird reactions that it gets hard to tell what is actually "unusual" and what is just my special brand of strange. :)

    And of course, I don't intend to try any suggestions without discussing them with the doctor first. ;)

    • ANSWER:
      I have helped many people quit smoking without any side effects whatsoever. However, because you mentioned your blood pressure dropping, this is an indication that there is some sort of medical issue at hand. I would focus more of your attention on the blood pressure issue first since that seems to be a bigger problem than actually quitting smoking. Also I would be very careful about trying any gimmicks, pills or drugs. If you have a blood pressure problem these could be dangerous and make things worse.

  12. QUESTION:
    HELP STOP A COUGH......?
    My Dad is a 54 yr old white male. His current meds are a blood pressure pill and omeprozal prescribed my his PCP. About 8 months ago he became sick and, developed a nagging cough after my convincing him to go to the Dr. he was diagnosed with walking-pneumonia. He was treated with oral anti-biotics, 2 shots,cough med.,prednisone and was sent on his way. The symptoms cleared up, he felt better and all seemed well, except the cough never left. He has been to his PCP 4 times because of this and each time he was given an antibiotic and a couple times he also took prednisone. The Dr. also ended up giving him a nasal spray, inhaler and several different types of cough meds too, still coughing. The only cough medicine that helped control the cough was a combo med. that had hydrocodone in it. He has used 3 bottles of that. I suggested that he be seen by an ENT so i made him an appointment. He was evaluated and they did a procedure (cant remember the name) where his throat was nummed and a tube inserted thru his nose and down into his esophagus. There the ENT saw redness and irritation that he thought maybe caused by acid reflux. He decided to up the dosage of the omeprozal to see if that might help the cough and sent him home. Well, that was 5 weeks ago...still coughing...no change.

    Let me try to describe the cough. It is nothing short of what i consider a coughing "attack". I have timed him and he has coughed non-stop (just breathing in between) for 30 seconds to 3 minutes. He says it starts with a "tickle" and let the coughing begin. His face turns blood red, clear stuff will just run freely out of his nose. His eyes water to the extent to where it looks like he is crying, tears flowing down his cheeks and they also become blood shot. His voice changes after the attack, but returns to normal.

    I have been all over the internet looking for natural/holistic remedies/advice to help stop a cough. Here are a few he has tried. Local honey w/ apple cider vinegar (seems to help for 45 minutes to 1 hour). Oil of oregano capsules (no help) from GNC store. Sore throat sprays (he says they will shorten the coughing attack), but it comes back. He has gargled ST-37, salt-water, peroxide/water, and his latest treatment Listerine. He says the Listerine gargle helps IF he gargles it for 20-30 seconds and allows " a tad" to actually go down into his throat (swallows it). I read the bottle and it is clearly labeled DO NOT SWALLOW. I realize the amount that he is actually swallowing is minimal, but if you do it 10-20 times a day everyday (and he is) that minimal amount adds up.

    My Dad owns a floor covering business and I work there as well. So i am with him 7+ hours a day. I know how much he coughs and how violent some of the attacks are. They can occur at any given time, during sales transactions with our customers and telephone conversations. We also sing in a southern gospel group called the Foundations. They also have occured when we are on stage, but they have been mild.

    To Sum it all up I AM WORRIED ABOUT MY DAD!!!! This cough limits his ability to deal with customers at our shop, to be able to do what he loves the best SING and even more it is affecting his quality of life. His sleep is interupted with coughing spells all thru out the night. (it is driving my mom crazy too). I am starting to think he is entering a mild state of depression due to the cough and his inability to find permanant relief. Thru this i can see where he has lost some joy and bubble from his personality. He is more irritable too UGH!! Some of the different thigs he has tried have helped but it is short lived and only treating the symptoms and he needs to find out the cause.

    Can You Help?????
