In the homeopathic system, hypertension or high blood pressure is considered as a by-product of the modern lifestyle. When the blood pressure is elevated, the body becomes stressed.
Don’t expect instant results when opting for homeopathic remedies. It will take some time before you will notice results. Using drugs to bring the blood pressure down within an hour or two puts the arteries in danger. The swift transition between low and high pressure can damage the arterial wall.
Homeopathic remedies work to lower the blood pressure safely and gradually to minimize the negative effects on the arteries. Below are five of the best homeopathic treatments for hypertension coupled with specific symptoms:
Belladonna is an herb used in homeopathy to treat hypertension with a headache. This herb is used when the pain is located in the temporal region, generating a throbbing sensation. Other symptoms include redness and heat of the face, burning sensation of the skin, and vertigo. If the patient cannot tolerate sudden movement or the slightest touch and motion, use this herb.
2. Nux Vomica
Nux Vomica, also known as the poison nut, is best used for high blood pressure caused by poor diet or lifestyle. If the patient loves fried, spicy foods and caffeine, this herb could neutralize the effects of bad diet. Usually, individuals who are indulgent in food are irritable, thin, active and nervous. They are easily angered but chilly. They are often constipated, aggressive and anxious. Morning is the worst time for these people because this is the time when the symptoms are at their most aggressive.
3. Natrum Mur
Natrum Mur is a type of homeopathic preparation made from sodium chloride, or table salt. This preparation is used to treat high blood pressure caused by excessive salt consumption.
Individuals who suffer from this condition love salty, fried foods as well as sour or pickled foods. They suffer from dry mouth, puffy eyes, and blinding headaches. They are prone to palpitations, anemia and tongue that’s coated asymmetrically. Usually, those who consume excessive amounts of salt also suffer from bloating, edemas and migraines.
Glonine is a preparation used to treat high blood pressure coupled with flushed head and face. The flushing is caused by blood congestion. The preparation is made from a combination of glycerin, oxygen, and nitrogen.
Usually, glonine is recommended for hypertension made worse by headache, irritability and redness of the face. Individuals who suffer from this condition are often irritable, excitable, with low tolerance to heat. Also, the patient cannot tolerate heat around his head so he does not use a pillow. The headaches could be caused by sun exposure, and the rising and setting of the sun.
Rauwolfia is an evergreen plant that belongs to the family Apocynaceae. It’s meant to treat the classic case of high blood pressure. The herb is used as a stock medicine to minimize an irritated nervous system. Rauwolfia works best as a mother tincture form. The preparation enhances the potency of the herb. However, Rauwolfia is not recommended to pregnant women.
