Hypertension is a syndrome of high blood pressure. In 90-95% cases the people is suffering from essential arterial hypertension, namely that if high tension is not due to complications or side effects, but as a result of disturbance of function of human cardiovascular system. The reason of tension increasing can be the raising activity of the biological mechanisms that cause the constriction of blood vessels. Other cases are diagnosed as – symptomatic or secondary arterial hypertension. This may be a consequence of kidney disease, endocrine system and even a secondary effect after receiving the therapeutic medications.
Symptoms of hypertension, treatment of classical medicine
The symptoms of hypertension are well known: high blood pressure, chronic headaches, irritability, decreased work capacity, short memory and many other unpleasant symptoms that prevent mankind to live and work normally. In the contemporary classical medicine the treatment of hypertension is most often made by medical methods. Often it happens that medications do not provide sufficient effect continuously, even at their permanent receiving, and eventually ceases to have any effect in general, but all this time the hypertension progresses. The systematic administration of medications leads to the exacerbation of existing disease and development of new diseases, particularly in the case of symptomatic hypertension.
Hypertension, treatment by methods of Oriental Medicine
Tibetan medicine and Chinese medicine treats the hypertension depending on the primary causes that served to the formation of defects in the cardiovascular system and, consequently, caused the arterial hypertension. This can serve excessive activity of the liver and, consequently, the blood becomes thick viscous, that is hardly “to pump” to the heart (principle of vital imbalance – “Bile”), it can be and vice versa – “cooling” of blood on background of excessive weight and weak kidneys (principle of vital imbalance – “Mucus”), as a consequence, in the first and in the second case – occurs the development of atherosclerosis, which also leads to the rigidity and vascular ischemia, to the disruption of transportation of fluids on the tissue level, often the arterial hypertension shows a lasting emotional psychical tension and stress tension (principle of vital imbalance – “Wind”), we often can pursue a combination of the above stated disorders.
Thus, in each case having the same complaints and clinical symptoms – the most important think – arterial high blood pressure, treatment of hypertension should be chosen individually for each person, clearly identified the cause.
One of the main stages of treatment of the high blood pressure syndrome is the correct alimentation, the patient’s lifestyle, according to the current imbalance. In one case, it could be the increase of elasticity of blood vessels reasoning from the blood and liver purification. In another case – this activity will be designed to heat the blood, to intensify the kidney function, to eliminate the stagnant lymph and to reduce the excessive body weight (weight loss). In the third case – the harmonization of emotional background, the consolidation of nervous system, the correction of negative thoughts.
