Low blood pressure
Low blood pressure is medically called hypotension. Generally, the blood pressure reading of 90 mm Hg or less systolic blood pressure, or 60 mm Hg or less diastolic blood pressure is regarded as low blood pressure. Vertigo, fainting, lack of concentration, as well as blurred vision, exhaustion and depression are some of the warning sings of low blood pressure. In certain cases, people who suffer from low blood pressure have cold and dry or pale skin. Moreover, quick and shallow breathing and constant thirst may also occur as symptoms of hypotension. Low blood pressure may appear as the consequence of several conditions, such as pregnancy, heart or endocrine problems and septicemia. Furthermore, dehydration, loss of blood, anaphylaxis and lack of nutrients in the diet may also lead to the occurrence of hypotension.
Homeopathic remedies for low blood pressure
Most people prefer homeopathic remedies than allopathic treatment, because homeopathic remedies hardly have side effects. It is important to consult a homeopath before taking any homeopathic cure. Homeopathy is very effective in reducing the symptoms of low blood pressure. Usually, a homeopath prescribes one of the following homeopathic remedies: Aconite, Sepia, Oleander, Acid flour, Adrenalin, Conium, as well as Cactus, Curare, Halo, Histamine, and Radium. Although there are more, these homeopathic remedies are the most common.
Homeopathic remedies are preferable in the treatment of low blood pressure, because these remedies are the healthy extracts from the plants and herbs in the form of tinctures. For example, Belladonna, Sanguinaria, Argentum nitricum and Nux vomica are the most frequently used tinctures for hypotension. There is also Ayurvedic treatment for hypotension, which is also very effective. However, the use of any Ayurvedic medicine must be under the supervision of a qualified Ayurvedic doctor.
Home remedies for low blood pressure
There are also certain things that we alone can do in order to prevent or alleviate the symptoms of low blood pressure. In the case of hypotension, consuming alcohol is not recommended, because it can aggravate low blood pressure by dehydration, while drinking a lot of water is suggested. Healthy foods are advisable, such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains and fish. Most doctors recommend the intake of sodium and salt if a person suffers from hypotension. It is better to eat several small meals during a day, rather than three large meals. Furthermore, it is recommended not to change body position abruptly, but very slowly, especially when trying to stand up.
