The Prevention and Management of Hypertension - An Ayurvedic and Modern View
Archana B. H. Jadav, Susheel Shetty
Abstract: Hypertension is a common disease in today's world. Every fifth person is discovered to be hypertensive. The majority of adults develop it in the latter half of their lives. Each year, heart disease and stroke account for more than half of all deaths and disabilities, killing over 12 million people. It is predicted that by 2020, the global cardiovascular disease burden will be increased by 75%. There is no clear pronunciation of Hypertension in Ayurvedic texts; according to Charakacharya, it is not always possible or necessary to identify a disease by its name (Anuktavyadhi). An Ayurvedic physician should attempt to construct the Samprapti (Pathogenesis) of a given clinical condition in each case based on signs, symptoms, acuteness, chronicity, complication, and investigative findings, and plan management accordingly. Hypertension is a terrible disease with a multifactorial origin and a chronic aetio - pathogenesis. When the Dosha, Dhatu, and Mala theory is applied, the pathology appears to be centred on Shonita Dhatu and Tridosha. As a result, it falls under the Madhyam Rogamarga (intermediate route) and is thus Yapya disease (difficult to cure).
