Dr. J. T. Contractor: Burning issue of today BP!
Vd. Tushar Trivedi : Tab. Satvabala has wonderful results in HTN.
Dr. Arvind panchal: Tab abana...Himalaya drug...but don't know results
Vd. Krutika Suhas Chaudhary: Gud result...helps to reduce antihypertensive rx dose... Can b used in tapering dose,Guda + pippalimual and gud+ jatamansi both are good in this
Vd. Tushar Trivedi : Tab. Satvabala from A for Ayurveda pvt. Ltd.
Baroda Arti parimal: Take khas khas (poppy seeds) and water melon seeds at night with milk
Dr. Arvind panchal: Any scientific research on ayurvedic antihypertensive drugs...?
USA Umangi Patel: Sarpgandha tab have good result on HTN, Also need to know root of causing HTN
Dr. Samir Suneri: Sir ,As pr senior its about changes in vyan vayu . I observed some drug are useful in paitik patient, Like rasgandha tab of some company give good result in paitik pt, Exactly how it works on vayu i dont know.
Dr. Prerak Shah: If we suggest Sarpagandha then we should also discuss abt it's side effects. Because of side effects, Sarpagandha is not widely accepted by worldwide practitioners.
Dr. Samir Gadhia: I have seen any gastric complains in most of HTN patients like burning sensation in abdomen, gas trouble, constipation etc.. In this cases Tab. Cardostab (Nagarjuna) has good results... It contains Sarpagandha and Triphala.. Good result found.. And in early stage of HTN / Newly detected Patients best result. Another observe that Yogasana like Pavan Muktasa, Paschimotanasana  And Pranayam Kapalbhati, Bhastrika can also useful in the treatment of HTN... One more thing.. Stress Management and Anger Management is the most necessary thing while treating the patients of HTN.. We must counselling about this point...
Dr. Harshit Shah: Hello.. what is the normal range of BP ... As per WHO
Dr. Samir Gadhia: BP must be under 140/90.. (Canadian and American HTN council August 2014 research work )
Dr. Meghdoot Satvekar: Hypertension is one of the major causes of disability and death all over the world. Hypertension causes heart attacks, strokes, kidney failures and other disorder if it is neglected and remains untreated. In many cases, hypertension does not cause any symptoms until it causes complications such as heart attack and stroke and plays a role of silent killer in the body. So it is important to realize that you may have high blood pressure and only way to find it out that get your blood pressure checked at regular intervals.
Blood pressure is high when arterial blood pressure is elevated above the normal ranges. The normal blood pressure reading is systolic 120 over diastolic 80.
Symptoms of Hypertension: Pain experienced at the back of the head and neck on waking up, which soon disappears .Dizziness, Palpitations, Heart pain, Frequent urination, Nervous tension, Fatigue, Difficulty in Breathing
Causes of Hypertension: Stress and hectic life-style. Vitiation of vata, Smoking and an excessive intake of intoxicants, Hardening of the arteries, Obesity Metabolic disorders, Excessive intake of common table salt, Overloading of fast foods
Satyen: Satvabal tabs are helpful in hypertension.  one of my friend is using it since one month.  good results. Also improves mood.
Dr. Meghdoot Satvekar: Ayurvedic medications :Herbs For hypertension
Sarpagandha : For centuries Rauwolfia serpentina has been used to treat hypertension. 'Rasagandha' is a product used for effective treatment of hypertension. Main Ingredients :- Sootshekhar, Jatamansi, Sarpagandha 
Arjuna : Terminalia arjuna produced dose-dependent hypotension in anaesthetized dogs. Action of mechanism for this particular herb is that it acts like a beta-blocker and is a powerful antioxidant, liver protectant and contains cardio-protective, hypolipidemic, anti-angina and anti-atheroma properties. Read more about Arjuna 
Gokshura : Tribulus terrestris (gokshura) is a natural herb used for treating many diseases including hypertension. It has shown to be diuretic and an ACE inhibitor.
Vd. Jayesh Thakkar: High Blood Pressure or HTN  the cause is important in management. Yes Sarpagandha is not a solution to all forms of Hypertension...we need to see the lakshanas and on it basis interpret them into tridosa...It is imp to note many of heart failure & kidney damage are result of untreated HTN then at time HTN itself is caused due to drugs, eg  Many women who take contraceptives pills regularly tends to become hypertensive
 Dr. J. T. Contractor: Drear gentlemen:   I fail to understand that lion in jungle is always & quickly hyper besides it has to run fast catching prey BP of almost such carnivorous animals remain high, study of many scientists teams tracing many such observations v c on National Geography & discovery Chanel, no one gives any medicines to these animals for BP, yet they live a quality life through out, they go & sit in shallow water until pressure tends to normal, I tried this Aqua therapy on myself, soaked with mathka (earthen pot)  water my neck hands from elbow to palm, face, & leg from knee to toe, then went in bed for five ten minutes found BP declining, l think if v go to nature, nature takes care, besides any chemical ( I say inorganic) medicine makes body addicted,………Narrated this in good faith, it may not suit everyone per metabolic condition of the individual!..............But this has a matter needs to work by our naturopaths further along wth herbal science( organic) integrated with most ancient medical science Ayurveda
Vd. Jayesh Thakkar: In general: Lifestyle change Yoga Meditation helps...In general management the following treatment helps 1) Vata-anulomana 2) Sroto-sodhana 3) Sophagna………..Yes,  Dr...Nice point...Relaxation therapy is key management...Ur observation needs to regarded.  My Sir similiarly by clinical observation pointed out High Systolic is Vata-Pitta &  High Diastolic is Vata-Kapha
Vd. Dhruti Kagrana: Shirodhara is also helpful in hypertension.
Dr. Harshit Shah: Let me more precise. .. female pt. 8yrs. having prehypertensive stage 150/90.... can v go for same treatment?
Vd. Jayesh Thakkar: i.e  In (High Systolic/Normal Diastolic) Tx- (Vata Pittahara, Sothahara, Mutrala)…….. In (Normal Systolic/High Diastolic) Tx - (Vata Kaphahara)……..In (High Systolic/High Diastolic) Tx- (Sothaharam, Tridosahara)
Dr. Prerak Shah: @Dr. Contractor: I think about essential Hypertension... Some times it is must and beneficial too.
Dr. J. T. Contractor: Agree Dr Prerakbhai rightly said
Vd. Kundan Gadhavi: I'm using for my father since last 3 months previously B.P was 150/100, now 120-130/80-84,it was started after virechana, virechana also reduce HTN but to maintain have to start medicine also
Dr. Madhuri Patil Chaudhari: My opiniin. HTN is not actually a problem. Its the condition of vascular system esp. Arteries  all over body that causes related problems. So aim needs to be improving or reversing age-related vaigunya of Shira.
Vd. Shrinidhi: Sir ,Till now unable to manage malignant HTN but in other elavated  conditions had a good response with saraswatharista with jeerakadyarista equal quantity with 15 ml bid dose and 1 H.S sarpagandha tab and in pt with irregular bowel habits use to add aragwadha kashaya at night or triphala tab and along with simple pranayama and yoga HTN can be managed within 3 months
Dr.Purnima Patil: 10-15 ccRaktamokshan with syringe is also very effective
Bunty Gandhi: Being a non medico i always stay away from blood pressure topic ..ad its too risky anything to try for it..But felt that Sarpagandha has less side effects when used with other medhya rasayan like brahmi, shankhpushpi, jatamasi, khuskhus etc.. Like Siledin Of Alarsin...Alone sarpagandha has unwanted effects like tremors in hand, sleepiness, too much blinking ( not for all, my mother experienced while she was on sarpagandha ghan vati prescribed by dr) ..but with siledin there was no such effect.
Dr. J. T. Contractor: Sound pollution along with led oxide from automobiles also a cause of ( main ) of BP I suppose,Traffic police r found to b suffers of BP
Dr. Meghdoot Satvekar: Sarpagandha side effects – It is contra indicated in – Bronchial  asthma,  Duodenal ulcer,  Hyperacidity, Renal disorders.  Because it stimulates uterus, this herb should not be used during pregnancy. This medicine should be used strictly under medical supervision. It is not suitable to be used in cases of depression. It is not ideal to use this in children and after delivery. It is not ideal to take this medicine along with Digoxin, Levodopa. Special care is needed when it is administered along with other medicines for high BP. The combined effect may lower the BP to a great extent. Its sleep enhancing effect may further increase if taken by an alcoholic. Hence, precaution is needed.
Dr. Madhuri Patil Chaudhari: Arjun kshirpak. Wont show significant reduction in measured BP immidiately But will improve the tone of blood vessels and reduce incidences related to  HTN.
Dr. Rahul: Dasmularishta + punarnavarishta + argogyavardhini will show gradual reduction in BP, cholesterol, heavy breathing on climbing stairs,
Vd. Dipak Upadhyay: Resp drs. , Can anyone describe HTN as an AYURVEDA disease... with all aspects of AYURVED... Bcz Ayurveda based on TRIDOS....please
Dr. Devesh Kumar: It's can be correlated with rakta gata vata
 Dr. J. T. Contractor: Toning blood vessels may use an alkaloid derived frm garlics or one bud garlic to be gulped on empty stomach may rinse & cleanse the blood vessel's inner walls, can avoid BP………..One must not chew garlic as it causes internal bleeding, maatra' is always a perimeter to be strictly followed in using any drug no matter herbal or allopathic
Dr. Dhara Patel: Is the treatment for essential hypertension and secondary hypertension, same according to ayurveda? What are the causes according to ayurveda for essential hypertension in adults?
Vd. Jayesh Thakkar:High Systolic is Vata-Pitta &  High Diastolic is Vata-Kapha
Dr. Deveshkumar: It's can be correlated with rakta gata vata
Dr. Sandeep Ahirkar: Ayurvedic point of view. sankoch and prasaran it's karma pf Vata dosha and blood pressure is nothing but pressure exerted on blood vessel s..then we can plan treatment on this basis..
Dr. Bhadresh Naik: Kindly inform hypertension ayurvedic perspective,Bp is only measurement in number only,How you corelate in ayurved
 Dr. Dhara Patel: Essential hypertension has nothing to do with blood vessel wall rigidity as in old age hypertension,One factor that is genetic
Dr. Bhadresh Naik: First try to under stand ayurved hyper tension
Dr. J. T. Contractor: Anger ? Sleeplessness ( insomnia)! Excessive use of antibiotic, pain killers,
Dr. Dhara Patel: All these factors leads to temporarily raised BP conditions?
Dr. Dhara Patel: BP regularises after discontinuing?
Dr. Bhadresh Naik: If dosha imbalance is cause, then why pressure does not increase  in few patients?
Dr. Devesh Kumar: Acc. To ayurveda high BP is vyan vayu aavaran by rakta dosha because acharya sushurtha said rakta is 4 dosha
Dr. J. T. Contractor: Dr Prerakbhai can v consider frequent constipation responsible For BP
Dr. Devesh Kumar: Vyan vayu does the paribraman in whole body and it resite in hrudya
Dr. Prerak Shah: For me: yes .... Disturbance in apana can disturb other Vata and it can be a major reason
Vd. Suhas Chaudhari: How shirodhara only effective in such Htn condition?
Dr. Devesh Kumar: Shirodhara can only help stress induced htn
Vd. Krutika Suhas Chaudhary: How the mechanism can be understood....??
Dr. Devesh Kumar: Shirodhara is soothing effect so it help to reduce stress n tension n insomnia
Vd. Sushmaben hirpara: Jatamansi in  powder form. 1 pinch twice or thrice a day with water
Dr. Bhadresh Naik: Ht is game of number, Clinical symptoms are different in all patients, How to make normal ht is the debate
Vd. Ketan bhimani: Tab cardostab from Nagarjuna is the best combination of sarpgandha n triphala. Compression of vayu n vicharvayu = HT……………Vatanuloman is the best therapy
Dr. Prerak Shah: Common person won't come for Ayurveda until we provide- either faster effect then modern medicine or cheaper solution. Sarpagandha, jatamansi etc are widely tried and tested , enough R&D has done. But not accepted by and large. How many people will rely upon us for the treatment of HTN? We need to think out of the box. Find out something which can work faster or which can be cheaper then present modern medicine. It's challenge for all of us.
Vd. Kundan Gadhavi: in systolic pressure vatapitta dosh involve ,stress,anxiety, fluctuations in b.p,brahmi,shankhpushpi,jatamansi,tagar,ashvagandha,are drug tab satvabal,mentocalm etc also daily mrudu rechan can be used,vata kapha dosh are involve in diastolic pressure ,mainly santarpanoth nidan is found,shodhan,pachan,lekhniya drug can be used,udavart is also one of the nidan.family history of BP also cause for BP in adult
Dr.Purnima Patil: Punarnava despite of having shothaghna gun...increases blood pressure
Vd. Ketan bhimani: In 70% case of hypertension pt, there is no need of medication.... Just only business of modern medical field, they spreads one type of phobia and getting huge money. We, ayurved people can't do like that. In socity, hypotension is more risky than hypertension.
Dr. Kumar S K: Mild to moderate hypertension am using cardostab tab from Nagarjuna comany 1 tab bd..doing wonderful,Similarly if systolic is more we use vidaryadi kashayam
Vd. Tapan: We never care to ask the patients Which complaints have made you come to me? As soon as pt says I hv HTN we start thinking heart vassales gene fluids pressure bp measurement .. Bla bla bla. We never ask what are the symptoms that disturbed your routine and that compelled you to seek help from me. We should try to find the series of symptoms and than try to fit that series of symptoms in some clinical entity described in Samhitas and treat it as per the guidelines givan by Acharyas. Underlined HTN will automatically be cured. If you can not find any clinical entity no problem. Go for the Doshik dominance in the symptoms and treat. Add some for Dhatu or Srotus or Pratyanga. Give a anti Dosh and Srotas diet and treat the patient. We both will be happy. By analyzing Blood Pressure and its Ayurvedic interpretation will never serve the purpose. Everyone will hv his own perception and a Yoga or regime. So more you discuss BP more you get confused. At the end of the day you get a huge number of formulations and theories without clear perception. Better go on symptoms . Diagnose Amlapittaa, Unmaada,  Vibandha,  Karna naad .... Bla bla bla and find suitable treatment from Shashtra . Treat the patient and if he is happy do not count BP high or low. I assure you if pt is benefited with above way of diagnosis and treatment  he will not have any problem with his high or low BP. This is what my way is.
Vd. Dhruti Nirav Bhatt: I agree with Vd. Tapan sir because every patient have different causative factor for Hypertension so go for history about lifestyle and complains of patient. Some patient have habit to add salt over cooked food, Papad, Pickles, junk food, irregular diet and sleep habit. Stress, heart problems, Renal disease, Diabetes, constipation or indigestion rule out cause and treat. Piplimool powder 1 tbs boiled in milk and give it at bad time, Haritaki will help because Vatanulomani, Hridya give Erand bhrist Haritaki for laxative
Vd. Krutika Suhas Chaudhary: Sir my thesis work was on pippalimula in anidra...clinical trial, And by my interest i gave the drug to the hypertensive patients... It helped a lot in almost all d symptoms.....related to hypertension...
Vd Charu Trivedi: Pippalimool increased blood pressure. don't use only one symptoms…. see all and than give the drug.
Vd. Krutika Suhas Chaudhary: I have also observed dat with jatamansi patients get addicted to the drug..but pippalimula is effective and still later on u can reduce dat also, Nidan parivarjan and councelling is most important in hypertension....In hypertension also..Treatment will differ according to prakriti....vaya..hetusevan etc...In which patients it increased mam??
Vd. Kinshuk Hirpara: I don't think any ayurvedic drug is addictive,  and if it is , nothing wrong in it as even modern science gives medicine fr life long example - insomnia , diabetes or skin diseases.  These are simple herbal drugs ! So as far as patient is feeling better with it, why to hesitate to give for long time!
Dr. Bhadresh Naik: Vd tapanbhai rightly mentioned, Number of type ht. We must consider all this consider, Like  adrenaline tumor cause ht Portal ht Kindly ht We must think , Go for investigations, Rule out causes. Ht must consider serious complications, Life style, Stress, Bed habit, Irregular diet habit, Irregular sleeping habit So on, We cannot balance all dosh balance all 365 days-Think and act
Vd. Akshata Swami: Mr. dev, i think vidaryadi is mutrala so it has gud results over blood pressure.... Reduces fluid tension……………purusham  purusham vikshya sa ghneyo bhishak uttamam………person to person medicine will be different..
Germany Helga Fuchs: Yes Dr.Badhresh Naik. I do not agree really with Dr. Prerakbai. Cheap treatment yes, no problem in Ayurveda if pt do his part. He have to change and follow a healty Routine. All this is already there in Ayurved. It is not doctors work to pleasure him. It is doctors work to show him the good way for better health. If he is not able to follow by mind or time, it is not fault of doctor. Then we only work in Limit, but better as nothing. And the biggest point: most Patient who comes to Ayurveda her in the West are interested in healt. And intelligent. Many, not all, know s what is happen, if she start ones with common medicine for HP. There is only a way in deeper problems. And this is the point to think and looking for better ways. If this is given in patients Ayurveda is a good way. If one is really in danger by his sickness and there is no way for him in Ayurveda school medicine is a blessing as Ayurveda is. And after some time intelligent people have start to think for better lifestyle. She are feeling Bad. Common doctors also give advice for better habits, but Patient will only follow if he is ready. One time he is ready, if he feel more worst as ever. And very natural he have to take a natural lifestyle because he is not longer able to hold on his habits. Time is needed to heal, and time is not costly. It is free. Carrere is for most more important as health. And to satisfy a stupid boss gives money but not a normal life. Most are sick due the pressure of others or her one pressure. That's the point. And Ayurveda know that well. We should help the people to get stronger in mind and good habits, not only giving medicine. If Ayurveda forget his big rule as preventive medicine, it is on the way to loose. Like School medicine is in this rule. Nice effects but most time not healing, only press down the symptoms. Faster, cheaper AND quality is nice, and we find this in machines who makes our life more easy. But body is no safe machine and most bodys need more service as a car. Most minds, sorry.
Dr. Bhadresh Naik: Discussion on basic principles of hypertension according to morden and ayurved is important, Once we understand the etiology it's easy to treat, Spasm of cardiac muscle, Clots in vain and artery,Hormones change,Effects on involuntary and voluntary  nerve,Anatomical deformity, Sress, Anxiety, Fear, Diet, Allopathic medicine adverse effects Are causes, Now y can consider vayu with parasympatic and sympathetic nerve. Manas dosh with psychology factors. Ama with clot and coronary artery disease. So we consider this thing to easy to understand ht
Vd. Manhar Prajapati: One thesis on htn avipatikar before food also good result found ...I heard about gandhiji had htn but not took any medicine bcz no any symptoms found so don't concentrate only number game in future ratio might increase like normal 140/90
Dr. Samir Suneri: Hypertension Samparapti -  Asatmya Aahar Vihar- threedosha prokope-Kappu med vRiddhi-Dhamani gat sthan Sansriya-Vyan Vayu gat Prokop and Rakhwaaha Dushti
रक्त samvahan मित्या गति Result hypertension…………As for me I divided Patient In 3 Age group (1) first 25 to 35 age (2) second group 35 to 55 age (3) third one 55 to 85 age  and above age of patient
1stly i say about 25 to 35 age group they patient are always in worry they want to achieve something and found they are mostly fatty and obese……If we go to blood investigation for serum cholesterol the cholesterol level is high. These Patient are can be treated by vaman and vivechan…….Ghrita pan by triphala ghrita and panchtikta Ghrita Followed by vaman or Veirchan Rx mriduvir Chak dravya LIke amaltas, triphala tab and alovera And pranayam is must should take proper sleep
 Second group 35 to 55 Htn it may be due to Stress and over working. Plans for this  age we can plan for yoga vasti It takes 8 days then raktamokshana Some drug combination we are using  here. Extract of Punarnava,Yawani,Sunthi ,Arjuna,Sankar vati,Prabhakar vati,Hridayarnav ras,Akeek pisti,Prawal pisthiAnd mansyadi kwath,Saratwata ristha…….These all drugs we are using -The drugs reduces LDL increased HDL and also reduces platelet aggrevation and reduces the sensitivity of heart To androgenic Stimulation. Arjun cheerpak  is not very useful in hypertension but we are using Arjun as a Cardiotonic in case of palpitation it gives very fast result
Third age group 55 to above: Mostly be patient had a complaint of hypertension due to ageing  so as per Ayurveda these patient needs kal vastu for 15 days and as well as hridaya dhara for  improvement of heart………We should give 3 courses of kaal vasti…..Rx, Treatment as per Prakriti But maximum  we are using the combination of above 35 to 55 age Group treatment, Contraindication  =tea coffee Smoking alcohol and over  Exertion, Yoga= pranayam -Bramari -Sawasan -Paschimotanasana
Dr. Satyendra Sharma: Pressure exerted by blood against the walls of blood vessels ,the arteries and veins called blood pressure. Systolic pressure. ,left auricle contracts ,a jet of blood forced into the large auricles(120). Diastolic pressure , the ventricle contracts while blood flows into them from the auricle(80) ,Pulse pressure ,the difference between systolic and diastolic pressure. It is now well known established that uncontrolled high blood pressure significantly increase risk of coronary heart disease. several factors are responsible. Heredity, life style, addiction, smoking, alcohol consumption , obesity, high cholesterol, stress ,hormonal disturbance etc.some steps are beneficial 1-Uses of moringa leaves , boil 50 g leaves in half liter water, stain and drink twice in a day.2-Half tea spoon Taj powder ,boil in a glass of water, stain and mix one spoon honey and drink in morning in empty stomach 3- Garlic is a natural blood thinner. The sulphur compounds in garlic blocks the formation of cholesterol in liver, thus the blood pressure declines.4- Say no to smoking. 5- Reduce body weight 6-Stress management -anxiety, anger,distress, fear,irritability and frustration lead to increase in blood pressure.Do  aerobic walk and join laughing club.7- Regular use of Arjun powder or tablet helps in   high BP management. 8- Green tea consists two important enzymes ,Thiaflavin and Catechin helps in lowering blood pressures 9- Promote fiber in food.10-Only life style changes and Ayurved management is permanent solution.  .Regards
Vd. Sachin Kadlag: I have observed hypertension can be impact of negative thinking .Those patients usually get detected hypertension accidentally……..If they haven't started allopathic antihypertensive treatment,  and if we use jatamansi,  brahmi,  ananta like drugs, BP comes to normal…….And if patients developes art of positive thinking,  hypertension doesn't happen again………In some patients if they get over stressed or worried , bp may go to 240/ 120 mm of hg , this stage also can be managed with ayurvedic drugs like sarpagandga , gokshur………Later when patients thought became calm no antihypertensive is required
Dr. Samir Suneri: Sir but it's not easy to think like this…..only negative thinkers have Htn, In age of 25 i had a complaint of htn, Which is suddenly diagnosed due to i did random bp check…..After my check up i did all investigation : ECG, cardiography, lipid profile, KFT, All are normal that time i m in a college and no matter about negative thinking ……After 2-3 yr, Automatically it resolved now i m ok
Vd. Sachin Kadlag: There are multiple different reasons for hypertension
Dr. Bhadresh Naik: Please try to understand the etiology of ht……….Many type of ht………..You can not  randomly treat…….Ht always complicated
Vd. Hardik bhatt, Idar: Bp normal range should vary age ... I think it is 90+ age
Vd. Sunil Suthar: Have you ever tried  pure allum ? I found and met one ras vaidhya in gujarat tribal zone during my dabur journey, he completely relaxed pt of hyper tension with pure allum ash, put it sublingually and BP goes down like Depin or Sorbitrate! I think it should be done by our vaidhyas also ! I didnt know exactly how it worked at that time ? But i saw miracle during this treatment,
And then he put pure cow ghee at brahm randhra and and pt felt relaxed , lots of pt took benefits during dt camp ! Wonderful result i have seen like emergency in ayurveda ! Lots of ayurved knowledge found during talk with folk farmers and  tribal people!
Vd. Dipak Upadhyay: Resp. Drs. , As par my knowledge... DAVIDSON'S... book for physician... BP - 120/80 mm of hg....in laying down position..  in AYURVEDA there is no  pulmonary hypertension / HT in pregnancy / children /.....Please guide me .
Dr. Samir Suneri: Pure allum means sir
Vd. Sunil Suthar: Sphatika bhasma(125 mg) + tankan bhasma(2 G m) !.........I also found good result dt but it is not complete treatment , I mentioned above that it is emergency of ayurved , like depin, sorbitrate
Dr. J. T. Contractor: Animal lovers have globally proven an unusual fact that if BP patients keep a pet any domestic animal like cat, dog, rabbit, deer & show tender love by rubbing their fur or feather( if bird kept) in most natural way BP remains normal, though dramatic but true & yet undisclosed fact of nature.
Vd. Krutika Suhas Chaudhary: Its related to stress……. It could be study related...could be others also…….Very perfectionist people also devlop
USA Parulben: In that case no American should suffer with Htn.
Dr Dipak Shirude: Is hypertension really a disease ?
Dr. Satyendra Sharma: Hypertension is not a disease while it is disorder. Health is defined as  a status of being well in physical, mental and socially well
Vd. Ketan bhimani: Any thing not in easy, all are disease.
Vd. XXXXXX: Sphatika bhasam constricts d blood vessels... How dey overcome hypertension?? Can anbody elaborate plzzz
Vd. Sunil Suthar: Resp .all docs , i shared experience as i saw in tribal area , and i have already spoken dt it is casualty treatment not cure by it ! It is worked like nifedepin   Or sorbitrate ,  @ prerak saheb , i didnt have any documentation regarding it , i frequently told dt the experience took place in tribal area , so i am so sorry sir i cant present it but u can try it on pts ,Plz put pure cow ghee pichu  at brahm randhra place for few minutes with this treatment !
Vd. Krutika Suhas Chaudhary: Worth working suggestion.. Vd.sunil...Can we give it continue..in htn pt.for long time..?
Vd. Sunil Suthar: @ krutika madam , plz plan it till only 21 days ,
Dr Bhagyashri Panchal: I want to know that other medicines should be continue along with sphatika???  I really want to apply it on my patient so pls clarify... After 21 days how long break should b there???Another cycle is required or not??And if yes than after how many days??
Vd. Suhas Chaudhari: It's called foklor claim of such combination
Vd. Sunil Suthar: @ bn panchal sir , plz sir u can continue along with your ayu medicines , because we have to find out proper cause why htn is der ? So It is emergency in ayurved ! Sir ! Plz it works as an emergency treatment ,
Vd. Suhas Chaudhari: But it requires safety data, then you can try on human subjects... It is ethical. If you go for it directly on human subjects, don't called it clinical trial. It is not valid trial, but good for ayurved & society.... Helping people
Shri Minoo parabia: Tankan is Saubhagyapushpa. Na2B4O7. 7H2O.Important ingredient of many drugs. Especially where toxic matter is used.Allum stops bleeding. An astringent not coagulant. Interesting. Must be tried.
------------------------------------------- end of comments from group 1 ---------------------------------------
Vd. Pulkit D. Patel: sarpgandha bhramhi....mukata pisti.....moktik is vary useful in high blood pressure.....
Vd. Vidhi M. Shukla: how to understand high blood pressure as per vat pitta kapha ?
IPR Chhayaben: What r the symptoms of high BP .. N low BP..  N how fetal it is..
Vd. Nidhi Awasthy: Treatment depends on Cholesterol ,Lack of sleep ,Stress etc. Cardimap tab is great for symptomatic relief
Vd. Hardik bhatt, Idar: Common causes :- heart problem , kidney disease , diabetes , old age , addiction , irregular food habits , junk food , tension , depression , heridotory , constipation , irregular life style, some medicines , climate change , pregnancy , are mostly common causes of Bp
Dr. Neha P. Bhatt: Virechan ,raktamokshan and shirodhara panchkarma treatment is useful..mukta pishti..cardimap are giving good results..High blood pressure should be considered as pitta prakop.. drava guna of pitta dosh increases
Vd. Mohit Verma: Tab arjin 1 bd Tab siledin 1 tab hs
 Keshav Shenoy.: Daily yog practices-  bramha mudra,  jivha bandh (tongue lock), simha mudra alongwith following pranayam -anulom vilom, seetali, brahmari, chandrabhyas, help to lower blood pressure levels.
Vd. Rupa Raval: Shashank asana (rabbit pose )  best for HTN
Vd. Jayesh Thakkar: High Systolic is Vata-Pitta &  High Diastolic is Vata-Kapha
Dr. Deveshkumar: It's can be correlated with rakta gata vata
Dr. Sandeep Ahirkar: Ayurvedic point of view. sankoch and prasaran it's karma pf Vata dosha and blood pressure is nothing but pressure exerted on blood vessel s..then we can plan treatment on this basis..
Dr. Bhavesh Modh: According to Ayurveda, high blood pressure involves all the doshas, the heart, and the blood vessels. We can see signs and symptoms of derangement of vata dosha mainly that of 'Vyana vayu' in high blood pressure. The treatment is to correct the balance of vata dosha. Pitta vitiation is also seen often and should be treated.
People with Pitta and Vata predominant constitution and Pitta and Vata imbalance, are more prone to hypertension than any other. Unprocessed anger, frustration, irritability, anxiety and fear leads to mal-adaptation of the endocrine system, which then leads to conditions like hypertension. Treatment is based on bringing these imbalances back to normal. In the treatment of hypertension; nutrition, exercise, breathing exercises (Pranayama), yoga, meditation, behavioral modification along with various herbs and minerals are prescribed. When  Vata predominates, An increase in blood pressure will be followed by worry, strain, overwork, anxiety or insomnia.It frequently associated with nervous system disorders.anxiety, worry, stress, and strain, are usually the main factors, therefore, treat the psychological conditions. By आचार रसायन  ( दिनचर्या )Vata Treatment - Take 125 mg.of serpagandha (raulfia serpentina) and jatamansi 3 times daily for 2 – 3 months.Garlic is very good for this condition. Eat an entire crushed clove ( or  रसोन क्षीरपाक ) once or twice a dayTake nutmeg or saraswat powder in warm milk. Ashwagandha too.When Pitta predominates, anger,nose bleed, Irritability, and Violent headaches Sensitivity to light contribute to high blood pressure. Pitta Treatment - Use tranquilizing herbs that have cold potency.=शीत वीर्य  For example, take 250 mg. of Brahmi powder  at night. either  take Brahmi Rasayana,Saraswat powder to purify Pitta, take 1 gram each of Indian sarsaparilla (sariva) for 15 days. When Kapha is prominent, there may be dull headache,edema, lethargy with obesity.blood pressure remains continually high. (no fluctuation as in Pitta hypertension.) Kapha Treatment - Avoid dairy, butter, eggs and high fat foods. 1 gm. of guggulu or arjuna twice daily, or 250 mg. of shilajit 3 times daily for 3 months can be taken.Kapha type of hypertension is almost due to arteriosclerosis (deposition of fat inside the arteries - making their lumen narrow- causing hypertension). All the above herbs remove arteriosclerosis. Optimal mixture is 'Triphala guggul' 1 gm. daily for 3 months. 100 mg. of cardamom and cinnamon 3 times daily is beneficial. Take these mixtures for 3 months. Don't forget. ,  Regularly check blood pressure.
Dr. Bhavesh Modh: Panchakarma in HT .Niruha basti Chikitsa (non unctuous enema) will be beneficial in hypertension and should be given by experienced physician.Dhara therapy is also helpful in treating obstinate cases of hypertension. Oil processed with bala (sida cordifolia) and milk is allowed to drop in small droplets on the forehead of the patient.
Australia Vd. Neerja Ahuja: Regular self massage as home remedy, n pranayama n meditation will also be helpful…….Please correct me if anyone knows but I think we are not allowed sarpagandha in Australia so even if good, not available
Dr.Yogesh Gorakhnath Patil: Tab Cardimap  1 BD + Divya Medha Vati 1 BD controlls BP + mild laxative daily……….Daily Abhyanga  will also decrease Blood Pressure due to peripheral vasodilatation
Colombia Enrique Jorge Galindo Bogota: Abhyanga with what oil please
Dr.Yogesh Gorakhnath Patil: Sesame oil
Exi kir: I m 57 yrs. old now. 6 years back, my bp was shoot up for the 1st time. Dr. prescribed a tab. bf bp (2.5mg.). I started taking it. Took it for about 1 year. Then, it was increased to 5mg. But since last two years, I do not take any medicine. My bp is normal.
USA Irene Cca: How your BP went down?
Exi kir: Controlled the cholesterol.  Change in routine. Started yoga, swimming, morning walk. Started consuming flex seeds, oats etc. Not taking any tension.
Colombia Enrique Jorge Galindo Bogota: I believe tensiometer increase tension
USA Irene Cca: the physical part is relatively easy but not taking any tension  it sounds good but how do it? I agree tensiometer increase tension.I have to take it every day...
Exi kir: I don't know what is tensiometer. I would advise that always be positive and think that I can handle the worst situation.
USA Irene Cca: Tensiometer is the little machine you can use at home to take your BP
Exi kir: Oh. I have BP meter since last five years. But, so far, used it 8 to 10 times only. Not used since last two years. Just be perfect in good routine. Have no addiction. Frequently go for outing. Different places. Sometimes far from home.
 USA Irene Cca: everything is right in these aspect good routine, healthy food and sport I think  my problem is with stress, fear and anxiety
Exi kir: Please remove stress, fear and anxiety. Health will be nice.
USA Irene Cca: Big changes lately move to another new country difficult for me and then !! problems with my BP no problems never before I need to found the way how to do it maybe yoga o meditation
Exi kir: Yoga and Meditation is the best in all physical and mental problems. Please note, "No Addiction".
Colombia Enrique Jorge Galindo Bogota: Also Lu Jong, tibetan Yoga is very good and very easy
USA Irene Cca: Too much time by me self and no social relations to much time for thinking and be aware of everything that happens to my body. addiction? in wich terms?
Exi kir: Smoking, Drinking, Chewing tobacco are the examples of addiction. Excess of these causes BP. Drinking mean to Liquor.
IPR Chhayaben: Anxiety n fear can decrease BP??
Exi kir: No. It will increase. If u control it, BP will be normal.
Canada Vd Priti Patel: Yastimadhu increase high blood pressure...!!  Long term consumption in patients of HT should be avoided.
Dr. Bhavesh Modh: Some days ago Dr. Prerak shah sir description DASHMOLARISHT's imaging result in low BP. marmchikitsa for immediate result in Hypertension
Dr. Ravi Dewan: This is good Dr. Bhavesh. This point corresponds to Pericardium 9 in acupuncture. I'm using it a lot in my practice with very good results especially in paitik type HT. We can also use another point which is at same level but between fourth & fifth matacarpal bones that is Heart 9. Very good results when we needle both these points to gather.There is lot of similarity between marma chikitsa & acupuncture.
As Vd. Prerak Shah sir said, we need to provide quicker acting medicines to control such things. Replacing Allopathic medicine with herbal source is not a treatment actually, but still is imp in patients taking Anti hypersensitive medicines for a long time. In these patients Brahmi, Sarpagandha, jatamansi are useful or some proprietary med like cardimap . But if v look at the actual aspect, there are following views of starlets of Ayurveda in Maharashtra –
1. Trikyak Raktapitta -- due to this logic Vd. PT Joshi advises Vasa Patra Churna 2-3gms thrice a day, mostly in saman kal
2. Avrutta vata -
Dr. Dipa Mehta: In hypertension brahmi tail shiropichu is very effective
Dr. Bhavesh Modh: Ayurvedic text does not explain hypertension as it is, probably because hypertension is a modern disease  that was absent in the past. ( there were no B.P. instrument 😝)     Therefore to find an Ayurvedic cure for hypertension Ayurveda practitioners followed these steps.They first identified the factors of hypertension like symptoms and progression and identified the structural and functional factors that got imbalanced in the diseased patients.Secondly they correlated these factors with diseases already mentioned in the Ayurveda texts, thus helping them to apply the treatment & medicines of correlated diseases in a new unexplained condition……….Here, few of the ayurvedic as well as natural remedies for the disease is given.
1.Ajwain lowers pressure by reducing blood concentration of stress hormones that caused blood vessels to constrict. It is a good natural treatment.
2.Indian gooseberry (Amla) is effective to lower it. Amla and honey should be taken every morning as an herbal remedy.
3.Lemon contains Vitamin C that prevents capillary fragility.
4.Watermelon is a good safeguard against BP and helps in dilating the blood pressure.
5.Boiled potato is effective in reducing BP.Vegetables contain magnesium that eases from hypertension.Calcium and potassium helps to remove sodium thereby control the working of vascular system.Vitamin C is effective in controlling hypertension.
6.Olive oil in diet contains monounsaturated fat that lowers both systolic as well as diastolic pressure.In diet, the person should take 20% carbohydrate, 10 to 15 % protein and 60-65 .
              Herbs like aloe gel, barberry, katuka, gotu kola, calamus, valerian, skullcap, cayenne, myrrh, motherwort, hawthorn and jatamamsi should be given priority as these are known ayurvedic solution for the disease.
The finest way to control it is the use of garlic (1 or clove of garlic thrice a day)
 Garlic ease the spam of arteries, slow the pulse and relieves the symptoms like dizziness, numbness, shortness of breath and formation of gas.
Naturopathic Treatment is beneficial
Mud bath is also useful if it is done after once a week.
Use of green color bottle duly changed water by sun rays also beneficial if one takes it in the morning and evening.
The person suffering from this disorder should start his day with morning walk.
One should stay in close connection with the nature to avoid stress and tension.
Prolong immersion bath is good for hypertension.
Spinal bath twice or thrice a day is useful as it helps in toned up the nerves.
Sun bath (not in summers )to activate the skin and lower BP.
Enema is too beneficial.
Hot foot bath is also given to cure high blood pressure.

Dr. Jyoti Ashok: Shiropichu, amalaki in takra maashkya, coconut oil 2 tsp with a pinch of jaggery on empty stomach will help in udavarta ,there by bringing down high BP.
USA Irene Cca: three garlic clove a day? takra maashkya? is it effective garlic pills instead of raw clove garlic?
Vd. Pankaj Chhayani: Hypertension occurs in pulmonary(lung) circulation as well as in systemic circulation. Blood pressure is lateral pressure of arterial wall due to cardiac output and total peripheral resistance.There is not fixed criteria of diagnosis of Hypertension..Arbitrarily, HTN considered when, Systolic BP is greater than 140mmHg, diastolic BP is greater than 90 mmHg.. Systolic Blood pressure is more dangerous as it tends to develop risk of cardiovascular complications..
There are mainly two types of HTN 1) primary 2) secondary..     B.P.= Cardiac output + Total peripheral resistance...........Cardiac output is responsible for systolic BP and Total peripheral resistance is responsible for diastolic BP.90-95% pts having Primary HTN. Genetic predisposition along with environmental factors cause primary HTN..
Causes and Rx :-1) Sympathetic nervous system hyper activity:-  usually in younger person,between age of 25- 55 years, usually anxious pt..
This is most important cause, western lifestyle is main culprit.
In this situation Medhya Rasayana along with meditation help a lot..
2) Obesity:-  1 Kg weight gain increases 2000 km cappilary in our body...So as person get obese ,there is lot of micro channels increase in our body, more channels give more load on pump(heart) and as results pumping capacity decrease that lead HTN..
Weight reduction helps in controlling BP.
3) Alcohol , Smoking.:-
Irritate sympathetic nerve endings and cause HTN...
Avoid alcohol, smoking..
3) increase intake of sodium or defects in get rid off extra Na..
Mutra virechna drugs (diuretics ) help in  reducing BP..
4) Sedentary life style and lack of exercise:- decrease heart capacity...
brisk walking improve heart function..
All these factors don't produce HTN alone, they produce HTN if person has genetic susceptibility..
Secondary causes must be ruled out in cases of HTN in pts  before 20 year age and after 60 year age ..
Secondary Hypertension is curable while primary is not 100%  curable...
HTN in Ayurveda:--Vyana vayu is mainly vitiated... In old age (premature ageing), Khara guna of vata(arteriosclerosis) is increased that decrease elasticity of Blood vessel and increase total peripheral resistance... Due to increase total peripheral resistance, Vyana vayu is partially obstructed (dysfunction of vyana- avarana).In this condition Abhyanga is very helpful.. Abhyanga decrease Kharata(dryness, rigidity)...
Vikshepana(throwing) is function of Vyana vayu..When Vyana vayu is vitiated(increased) ,it cause HTN...
There are many herbs those are helpful in managing HTN...
Tab. Tensonil(punarvasu) contains Gandir ..I gets good result of tensonil.. Many Dr believe that gandir is good hypotensive..
Brento of zandu is also good..
Baroda Dr. Jwalant: In ayurveda HTN is called as amlapitta and hypotension is called as sleshmapitta
Vd. Pankaj Chhayani: There is no word hypertension in Ayurveda.So there is not ref, Even can't say rakta gata vata………….. Fatty articles are not causative factors of HTN..sedentary life style is real cause……….. More and more people use fat less diet(even they eat chapati without ghee) still problem is not solved..People even using remote to close curtain/switch off fan in their bed room,Its extreme level of sedentary lifestyle
Vd. Kinjal Patel: Can it corelate with udavarta?
Vd. Pankaj Chhayani: First we must learn Importance of Fat in biochemistry.. Then we can understand verse of susruta regarding sneha...स्नेह सारोयं पुरुष, प्राणा स्नेह भूयिष्ठा, स्नेह साध्या पुन  No, we can not corelate with udavarta
Baroda Dr. Jwalant: No not udavarta.
Vd. Pankaj Chhayani: परिश्रममिताहारौ भुगतावश्विनीसुतौ ! तावनाद्त्यं नैवाहं वैधमन्यं समाश्रये !!   Exercise and controlled diet are the two Ashwinikumaras (Physicians of Gods) on earth: i dare not disrespect them, lest I land up in a doctor's clinic. bhela samhita……….Then u can corelate with many things... U r giving ref of commentator.Amlapitta, sleshmapitta, udavarta all are caused by faulty dietary habits..and this can cause hypertension
Baroda Dr. Jwalant: Good discussion.  Here one thing I have to tell all of my friends if you can understand ayurveda  with logic you can understand very well..Because all diseases  in ayurveda  and allopathy can matched perfectly but direct ref of modern terminology you could not found. Its a matter of understanding and perfect logical use.
USA Irene Cca: Dr Modh you said amla with honey every mornig how many mg? thanks!!
Vd. Nidhi Awasthy: Raised bp due to cholesterol can be treated by- Triphala gugglu andRasonaadi gugglu Plus cardimap.I got wonderful results by it
Baroda Dr. Jwalant: Amla dose:  powder 3-6 gms approximately. Honey one tblsp.Vasodilators and diuretics are also useful for hypertension. Rasayam churna - galo - medohar, gokshur - diuretic, aalma - tridoshanashak + so many benefits. I do not recommend punarnava as a diuretic for the treatment of h.b.p. gokshura is far better then punarnava……….Punarnava hraday ki kriya tivra karnevala hai is vajah se raktabhar bhi badhata hair. Ref dravyaguna vigyan. So when we have to use punarnava it should be contraindicated for h.b.p. patients. You can use other diuretics mentioned in our ref books.
Dr. Ravindra Upadhyay: Mantras are Frequencies that can Heal, Kill and Transcend……….Sanskrit is the oldest language that was based on sounds and vibrations…….Every alphabet and its pronunciation have specific meaning; like ku is earth, khE is sky etc.
Vd. Mohit Verma: If dyslipidaemia is the cause behind hypertension....cap. Decrin plus should be administered It also reduces fat, also indicated in obesity
USA Irene Cca: What about the doses if we use Ajwain? For High Blood Pressure
Dr. vikram delhi: Phyllanthus niruri or BhumyAmalaki is also a good diuretic
Exi kir: Food habit also one of the cause for bp.& next day fast (upavas) also advisable.After 45yrs takes a food for live life .. Not live for food.If take heavy lunch.... Must b take natural enzymes as a supplement.& next day fast (upavas) also advisable
Vd. Amarish Pandya: Though there  is no direct reference of hypertension in Ayurved, symptoms pf Shonitaj Mad  are close to symptoms of malignant hypertension.
Vd. Pulkit D. Patel: aavarana is also thair in ayurveda.....which suggest some particular lakshana of HTN.
Vd. Amarish Pandya: At ESIS hospital , Vadodara we have conducted special Ayurved & Yoga camp for hypertension patients  A guideline for diet & life style changes is prepared in vernacular language  ( Gujarati) it is posted here for non medicos ………..In mild or borderline hypertension or who are susceptible  diet and life  style changes alone are sufficient.
Dr. Ravindra Upadhyay: In my experience good many times in younger generation the fast life, change in lifestyle, irregular food habbits lead to. Malabaridhjanya Udavarta, causing obstrutive pathology, leads to HTN, in old age also there is Udavarta because of Peristalsis movements being poor, leading stagnation of toxic material, causing. HTN.
Vd. Sureshbhai Chavda: there is no direct reference of hypertention but shushrut  udhvaraktpit symptoms like  शोरोगौर व भम कलम शवास     same high bp symtoms headach. bhrama.thakavat .and swasha .breathing so it trie vasaghanvati and sarpghandha tab fore blood pre. and got result now we see high pressur .ruptured the vain in brain in peralysis  pt

Vd. Pooja Hirpara: Reduce sodium in yr diet, Do exercises
Vd. Vijayananda: Meditation is the very best for high blood pressure as well as other cardiovascular disease.
Vd. Pooja Hirpara: Stop da alcohol in yr drinks
Vd. Ashvin Dhamsaniya: Use saindhav namak n kapalbhanti is best for reduce blood pressure
Vd. Pooja Hirpara: Reduce yr extra weight,  Stop smoking, Walking...daily
Holland Devina Praktijk: Follow yogaclasses and exercise daily
Vd. Vijayananda: Wearing Rudraksha has also shown to decrease blood pressure
Mr. Ugesh Singh: What kind of rudraksha
Dr. Pooja Chandak: Avoid junk food nd stress
Vd. Pooja Hirpara: Yeah wearing panchmuki rudraksh also useful
Holland Devina Praktijk: Rudraksha tickles the skin, the sensation is good for lowering bloodpressure only if people enjoy sensation. Otherwise it might be annoying... So take care, wear for relaxation only……  That is how i have been told.. Seems logical to me Note the difference, imagine difference on skin and perception of sensation, Also during meditation using rudraksha other sensation is felt in the hand (fingers); which stimulates nerve ends etc differently. Works in nadi's As the Mind does too, Endorfins are freed during meditation. Balancing blood pressure
Dr.Sandeep Saluja: Garlic reduces blood pressure by releasing hydrogen sulphide which acts on the endothelium
Irland Niamh: Marma point therapy can also help with bp and panchakarma
Dr. Rammesh Natu: Most of the aspects are covered for controlling BP....one more that is Sudarshan kriya also helps in BP control... But I feel all these are more effective in normal individuals....does anyone having clinical data for all these claims?
Vd. Piyush Patel: First of all diagnos hypertension cause or nidan-Renal,Heptic,Anxiety,Cardiovascular deformity etc.After that specifically  use medicine Like Sarpagandha, Jatamasi, Punarnava, Ashvagandha, Arjuna,  Goxuradi gugal, Trifala
Dr. Shiriniwas Gujjarwar: Shirodhara with Brahmi oil also useful in high blood pressure.
Dr. Mrugeshkumar Patel: Arjuna &lasuna khsir pak
Dr. Shiriniwas Gujjarwar: Vd.Piyush Patel ji.You are right. First we have to rule out the causes of high blood pressure. Then only treatment useful.
Dr. Chetan Mehta: 1st Nidan parivarjanam And then treat the cause for HBP
Vd. sandeep Ahirkar: Now we should think on Ayurvedic point of view. sankoch and prasaran it's karma pf Vata dosha and blood pressure is nothing but pressure exerted on blood vessel s..then we can plan treatment on this basis.. this is my thinking about blood pressure ..may be my hypothesis goes wrong also………….I know it's not simple as i think please scholars here can guide us on other points  of views
Nigeria Mr. M. Gopikrishna: Ginger is known to reduce hypertension, if in tea / food taken regularly !
Holland Devina Praktijk: Tulsi tea
Vd. sandeep Ahirkar: Ya ginger n tulsi both can we used when atherosclerosis happens
Vd. Vijayananda: There has been extensive scientific research on Transcendental Meditation, specifically in relation to cardiovascular disease.: The book 'Total Heart Health' by Robert Schneider is full of scientific data and research on Ayurved and Meditation, with emphasis on the cardiovascular system. Truly remarkable and groundbreaking research, given that cardiovascular disease is the number one cause of death in the world. Stress is perhaps the number one causative risk factor for cardiovascular disease, so stress-reducing measures (meditation, Yoga, Medhya rasayanas, etc) are some of the best preventative measures to reduce blood pressure and other heart related issues.
In terms of herbs and more specific dietary recommendations, the exact cause of HBP should be known. There are Vata, Pitta, and Kapha predominate causes of high blood pressure, each requiring distinct sorts of treatment.
Vd. sandeep Ahirkar: Ya as per vatta pitta Kapha predominance we required distinct sort of treatments i agree
Dr. Dharna Tiku: Hypertension in Ayurvedic texts is termed as Rakta chap.Even though there is no elaboration of it textually still management of HTN is possible through lifestyle modification. Pranayama like anuloma- vilom, sheetli sheetkari and nadee shodhan are benificial.
Ayurvedic herbs and formulations : Sarpagandha ( to be given with extreme caution, knowing its effects on CNS).  Ashvagandha, ksheerbala thailam for Shirodhara, have seemed to help regulate BP to certain extent.
USA Brooke Sulivan: Yoga Nidra helps to process the emotions/mind stuff and activates relaxation & healing on all levels. Balanced breath (sama vritti) 1:1 and lengthening exhalation 1:2 (as long as this creates no anxiety) are specific pranayams for balancing bp (& mind & heart) Supporting the nervous system and adrenals can help touch the root cause (if stress induced) so herbs such as milky oats (avena sativa or avena spp. Pre-seed stage), scuttelaria (skullcap) quiets mind, relaxes as a mild sedative and also tones the NS. Both cooling, nourishing. And Hawthorne leaf, flower & berries are strengthening to the heart in tonic form (can prepare as jelly, tincture, tea). Legs up the wall is invaluable for stress/adrenal exhaustion that effects heart & bp.
Dr. Lokesh Raturi: I have seen great result in my practice with Shirodhara, Ashwagandha, Brahmi,  Arjun and Sudarshan kriya yoga.
USA Brooke Sulivan: I think a fusion of the sister sciences is where it is at today. Lifestyle support, effective herbs and pranic healing practices as a fusion is not only affordable, buy time tested and Hot on the modern scene. Not everyone is wanting purely main stream allopathic measures. Folks are now wanting more connection to purpose, to Nature and to things (medicines) that work without having to rely  on outside help. I believe education and empowerment are key.
Vd. Khyati Jariwala: V can also give diuretic ayurvedic aushadhi....like giloy gokhru punarnava....
Vd. sandeep Ahirkar: It's lifestyle disease we have to correct it's lifestyle first,Sorry N first of all it's marker of pathologies in body when we think of pathology treatment then this htn also Will decrease
Germany Sandra Wuttke: I have a question Dr. Lad mentioned in one of his books that when the liver is unable to process the cholestrol he gave Kutki for cleansing. (patient had distolic 90 and systolic 140) The high blood pressure normalized. Has somebody experienced that in high BP conditions?
Dr. Lokesh Raturi: Yes cleansing is always helpful. After virechan also good results are

Interesting information shared by Dr. Ravindra Upadhyay on Mantra and Sound of OHM

OM is the sound of cosmic energy and contains all the sounds in itself. The spiritual efficacy of OM is heard, not by the ears but by the heart. It surcharges the innermost being of man with vibrations of the highest reality.
All galaxies (including ours) are rotating and they sound they make is OM.
Frequency of OM is 7.83 Hz , which in inaudible to us as the human ear with 2 strand DNA human cannot discern sounds of frequency less than 20 hertz.
Birds, Dogs and few other animals can hear it.
OM has been adapted into other religions as AMEN, 786 ( OM symbol shown in mirror), SHALOM, OMKAR/ONKAR etc, but they do NOT work like the original OM.
While OM releases Nitric Oxide, Amen and Shalom only emit a sound.
Frequencies of various Beej Mantras
OM – 7.83 Hz
Gam – 14 Hz
Hleem – 20 Hz
Hreem – 26 Hz
Kleem – 33 Hz
Krowm – 39 Hz
Sreem – 45 Hz
These cosmic sounds were heard by 12 strand DNA maharishis in their spiritual trances which broadened their sense spectrums. However our brain can register the vibrations.

Advantages of natural production of Nitric Oxide in our body

The anuswaram (nasal sound) MMMM humming boosts the production of Nitric oxide in the body. This was known to Indians and documented more than 7000 years ago.
Nadaswaram (Shehnai) is an ancient musical instrument which produces similar nasal sound.
OM opens up quantum tunneling, where the wormholes do NOT have a restriction of speed of light. The secrets of this universe are contained in energy, frequency and vibration.
If you make the sound of OM in front of a drop of liquid, it will transform itself into a Sri Yantra which is very specific visual form which is symmetrical and also holographic, in that every bit of it contains all of it.
This Sri Yantra was revealed to Maharishis with 12 strand DNA and king sized pineal glands more than 8000 BC.
Sanskrit Mantras have precise golden ratio of 1.618 sound harmonics ( Fibonacci/ Sri Yantra ) in digital mathematical and geometrical precision and Sri Yantra is based on that ratio.
The cymatics of OM is the Sri Yantra whose angle is used to construct the Egyptian Pyramids.

All Beej mantras end with Anuswaram MMMM , which produces Nitric oxide, which is a molecule that our body produces to help its 50 trillion cells communicate with each other by transmitting signals throughout the entire body. People with diabetes usually have lower levels of Nitric oxide than those without diabetes.

Stems and Flowers cut from their original plants can survive for longer time if supplied with Nitric Oxide.
Opiate drug Morphine , the addictive pain killer, works by an increase in Nitric Oxide release. Nitroglycerin and Amyl Nitrite tablets serve as vasodilators because they are converted to Nitric Oxide in the body, to ease angina pain (heart pain). Viagra also works due to its action on Nitric oxide.
Sufficient amounts of Nitric Oxide in blood controls Blood Pressure.
When the human body reaches the age of 27 years, the secretion of nitric oxide is at its peak. As you get older and the production of nitric oxide in the human body declines gradually, more from age 42 onwards.
Researchers have found that frequencies under 7 Hz create a general feeling of relaxation and well being, known as the alpha state. The most beneficial frequency on earth is said to be the 6.8 hertz frequency. Interestingly, the Pyramid at Giza has a constant frequency of 6.8 Hz running through it. Although researchers have studied it, they don’t know where it comes from or why in such an ancient structure.
Mantras Frequencies that can kill !
Some ELF broadcasts from the Russians were thought to cause depression in humans. When the Russians first started transmitting in 1976, they emitted an eleven hertz signal through the earth. This ELF wave was so powerful that it upset radio communications around the world, resulting in many nations lodging protest. The U. S. Air Force identified five different frequencies the Russians were emitting in a wild ELF cocktail. They never broadcast anything below eleven hertz, or anything that would be beneficial. They had more sinister things in mind. ELF penetrates anything and everything. Nothing stops or weakens them. At the right frequencies and durations, whole populations could be controlled by ELF, or even killed. Once the killing range of these frequencies is perfected, it could make nuclear bombs obsolete. It could kill almost immediately with powerful adverse frequencies. Whole populations could be killed indiscriminately from radio frequencies transmitted from the other side of the globe without damaging anything else. A conquering army could simply take over the land and buildings without a battle.

Atharva Veda describes Mantras formed by assembling beej syllables in a certain order and they can cause mass destruction, killings, depression etc.
Most of such destructive science existed before Kurukshetra war in 3100 BC and people who had that knowledge were killed in that war to prevent misuse of such mantras in Kaliyug.
Not only could certain results be attained by the proper use of vibrations in sounds, but even today the use of particular mantras are known for calming the mind, lowering blood pressure, relieving one from unnecessary anxieties by changing one’s focus in life, and so on. It is also understood that certain mantras and prayers, such as the chanting of the spiritual names of God, bring to one the transcendental vibration of the spiritual world from where it comes. This means it is like a conductor, bringing the spiritual energy and frequencies that come from the transcendental strata. One of the classic mantras for this use is the Hare Krishna mantra (Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna, Hare Hare / Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama, Hare Hare). Experiments have already been performed that show the changes in those who regularly use this mantra.

Dr. Bhavesh Modh: नारीकेल उदकं स्निग्धं स्वादु वृष्यं हिमं लधु । तृष्णा पित्त अनिल हरं दीपनं बस्तिशोधनम् ।। अष्टांग ह्दय सूत्र अ.5         
बस्तिशोधनम् = मूत्राशय गत विकारं  = remover of bladder's problems 🤔
To date, there are over 1,500 studies proving coconut oil to be one of the healthiest foods on the planet.  Research has finally uncovered the secrets to this amazing fruit; namely healthy fats called medium-chain fatty acids (MCFAs), these unique fats include: Caprylic acid, Lauric acid, Capric acid, And around 62% of the oils in coconut are made up of these 3 healthy fatty acids and 91% of the fat in coconut oil is healthy saturated fat.
Most of the fats that  consume take longer to digest, but MCFAs found in coconut oil provide the perfect source of energy because they only have to go through a 3 step process to be turned into fuel vs. other fats go through a 26 step process!😳
Oil pulling  = गंडुष धारण an age-old practice that has gained modern popularity in promoting oral and systemic health. The scientific verification for this practice is insufficient.   ( oil pulling= गंडुष धारण) Rinsed mouth with 10 ml of coconut oil for 10 minutes.
CONCLUSION:Oil pulling can be explored as a safe and effective alternative to Chlorhexidine.Hence,  Coconut oil-pulling therapy (नारीकेल तेलम् गंडुष धारण )  can be considered as a preventive therapy at home to maintain oral hygiene.
Coconut  fresh water    would be an ideal drink instead of any other kind of soft drink beverages & ORS available in the markets to correct dehydration conditions in this summer.  Coconut water is composed of many naturally occurring bioactive enzymes such as acid phosphatase, catalase, dehydrogenase, diastase, peroxidase, RNA-polymerases etc. In effect, these enzymes help in the digestion and metabolism. Despite being very light in consistency, its water proportionately has better composition of minerals like calcium, iron, manganese, magnesium, and zinc than some of the fruit juices . coconut water is also a very good source of B-complex vitamins such as riboflavin, niacin, thiamin, pyridoxine, and folates.   So,  enjoy fresh  coconut water  in this summer. ..  diabetics also.
Dr. Ramiz Gadhiya: Coconut water useful in Uti...& coconut jaggery For gaining weight....
Dr. Bhavesh Modh: It is the only accepted species in the genus Cocos.  The spelling cocoanut is an archaic form of the word. The term is derived from the 16th-century ….Portuguese and Spanish word "coco" meaning "head" or "skull", from the three indentations on the coconut shell that resemble facial features.     In वैदिक  संस्कृति coconut's named त्र्यबंकम् ( = a one of the name lord Shiva who has three eyes. ) The story of coconut water being similar to human blood plasma originated during  World War- II when British and Japanese patients were given coconut water intravenously in an emergency because saline was unavailable.
  Since then, this rehydration technique has been used only for short-term emergency situations in remote locations where plasma is not available. Although substituting coconut water for saline is not recommended by physicians today, it was a common practice during the Khmer-Rouge  regime in Cambodia from 1975 to 1979.The Documentation Center of Cambodia cited the practice of allowing untrained nurses to administer green coconut water during the Pol-Pot    regime as a crime against humanity.   western is always wisely, after all 60% of saline  (i.v. fluids ) business in western medical market.
Vd. Mohit Verma: Coconut possesses many health benefits due to its fiber and nutritional content, it’s the oil that makes it a truly remarkable food and medicine. Once mistakenly believed to be unhealthy because of its high saturated fat content, it is now known that the fat in coconut oil is a unique and different from most all other fats and possesses many health giving properties. It is now gaining long overdue recognition as a nutritious health food. Coconut oil has been described as “the healthiest oil on earth.” That’s quite a remarkable statement. What makes coconut oil so good? What makes it different from all other oils, especially other saturated fats? The difference is in the fat molecule. All fats and oils are composed of molecules called fatty acids. There are two methods of classifying fatty acids. The first you are probably familiar with, is based on saturation. You have saturated fats, monounsaturated fats, and polyunsaturated fats. Another system of classification is based on molecular size or length of the carbon chain within each fatty acid.
Dr. Bhavesh Modh: Anecdotal sources describe coconut water is used in India for the senicide of elderly people, a procedure known as thalaikoothal… observed in some parts of southern districts of Tamil Nadu state of India.
Typically, the elderly person is given an extensive coconut  oil-bath early in the morning and subsequently made to drink glasses of tender coconut water which results in renal failure, high fever, fits, and death within a day or two. This technique may also involve a head massage with cold water, which may lower body temperature sufficiently to cause heart failure.But in this  method the exact causes of which have not been determined.
Hyperkalemia (inducing acute kidney failure .) &  Unconsciousness after the consumption of several liters of coconut water have been reported only as a clinical case study .
Vd. Mohit Verma: coconut may provide a wide range of health benefits. Some of these are: *.Provides a nutritional source of quick energy.*.Boosts energy and endurance, enhancing physical and athletic performance.*.Improves digestion and absorption of other nutrients including vitamins, minerals, and amino acids.*.Improves insulin secretion and utilization of blood glucose.*.Relieves stress on pancreas and enzyme systems of the body.*.Reduces symptoms associated with pancreatitis.*.Helps relieve symptoms and reduce health risks associated with diabetes.*.Reduces problems associated with malabsorption syndrome and cystic fibrosis.*.Improves calcium and magnesium absorption and supports the development of strong bones and teeth.*.Helps protect against osteoporosis.*.Helps relieve symptoms associated with gallbladder disease.*.Relieves symptoms associated with Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, and stomach ulcers.*.Improves digestion and bowel function.*.Relieves pain and irritation caused by hemorrhoids.*.Reduces inflammation.*.Supports tissue healing and repair.*.Supports and aids immune system function.*.Helps protect the body from breast, colon, and other cancers.*.Is heart healthy; improves cholesterol ratio reducing risk of heart disease.*.Protects arteries from injury that causes atherosclerosis and thus protects against heart disease.*.Helps prevent periodontal disease and tooth decay.*.Functions as a protective antioxidant.*.Helps to protect the body from harmful free radicals that promote premature aging and degenerative disease.*.Does not deplete the body’s antioxidant reserves like other oils do.*.Improves utilization of essential fatty acids and protects them from oxidation.Helps relieve symptoms associated with chronic fatigue syndrome.*.Relieves symptoms associated with benign prostatic hyperplasia (prostate enlargement).Reduces epileptic seizures.*.Helps protect against kidney disease and bladder infections.*.Dissolves kidney stones.*.Helps prevent liver disease.*.Is lower in calories than all other fats.*.Supports thyroid function.*.Promotes loss of excess weight by increasing metabolic rate.*.Is utilized by the body to produce energy in preference to being stored as body fat like other dietary fats.*.Helps prevent obesity and overweight problems.*.Applied topically helps to form a chemical barrier on the skin to ward of infection.*.Reduces symptoms associated the psoriasis, eczema, and dermatitis.*.Supports the natural chemical balance of the skin.*.Softens skin and helps relieve dryness and flaking.*.Prevents wrinkles, sagging skin, and age spots.*.Promotes healthy looking hair and complexion.Provides protection from damaging effects of ultraviolet radiation from the sun.*.Helps control dandruff.*.Does not form harmful by-products when heated to normal cooking temperature like other vegetable oils do.*.Has no harmful or discomforting side effects.*.Is completely non-toxic to humans.

 Baroda Dr. Jwalant: (Improves cholesterol ratio reducing risk of heart diseases.)
COCONUT OIL:  Numerous health authorities advise against regular consumption of coconut oil due to its high levels of saturated fat(similar to that of animal fat) having potential to increase risk ofcardiovascular disease.
Vd. Rahul Marwah: Just to add a point in coconut discussion --- recently coconut oil has been found useful in Alzheimer's
Dr shivang swaminarayan: Studies have demostrated that Coconut oil helps in eliminating abdominal fat apart from multitude of other health benefits it has to offer
Dr. Prerak Shah: @Dr. Shivang: pl elaborate this point. This is interesting. Ayurveda says 'samane gun vardhane'. - means fat can increase fat in the body. How can it be helpful for eliminating fat? This is very interesting. Thnx.
USA Irene Cca: good point!!!
Dr. Bhavesh Modh: Most of the fats that  consume take longer to digest, but MCFAs found in coconut oil provide the perfect source of energy because they only have to go through a 3 step process to be turned into fuel vs. other fats go through a 26 step process

Shri Minoo parabia: Reminds me of reading an anecdote. During second world war one British doctor used to use fresh coconuts as IV normal saline, straight from the fruits to the vein! Rich in vitamins salts and kinetins. Enhences healing. The glucose could be flatulent to some. Advised to use praxep of trikatu.  Shell is burnt and oil is collected for use on chronic eczema. However dangerous but used by coastal tribes. Coir burnt and ash given along curd to cure bleeding piles.  Coconut is crushed along water and the milk is given to lactating mother. Excellent. Yes. Excellent antidote to Bhallatak as mentioned.I had seen a folklore doctor use oil derived from coconut shell(by adahpatan paddhati) in eczema, ringworm and orther skin problems....
Naturally refreshing, coconut water has a sweet, nutty taste. It contains easily digested carbohydrate in the form of sugar and electrolytes.  coconut water is a clear liquid in the fruits  centre that is tapped from young, green coconuts.It has fewer calories, less sodium, and more potassium than a sports drink.  coconut water contains 5.45 calories, 1.3 grams sugar, 61 mg of potassium, and 5.45 mg of sodium compared to Gatorade, which has 6.25 calories, 1.75 grams of sugar, 3.75 mg of potassium, and 13.75 mg of sodium.
Dr. Pina Patel:  coconut water -shital, hridya,dipan,sukral,laghu,…..Basti sudhhi karm parm
~Phala--shita durjarm bastisodhnama
~komalphal--pitt jvara pitt dosh nihanti
~jirnphala-- guru pittkari vidahi vistamvhi
Vd. Dhruti Kagrana: In the ayurvedic Nighantus, or classical texts, which talk about raw materials or fruits, the coconut is actually divided into three types of coconuts:
 1.Baal: tender or baby coconut
2. Madhyam: half-mature coconut
3. Pakva: fully mature coconut
1. Baal or tender coconut: This type is 90 to 95 percent water. The liquid from this coconut is at its purest and most healing. It is considered the best for its cooling properties, for it is a proven pitta-pacifier. While unclogging the body's channels, tender coconut water lubricates the dryness caused by ama(toxins). It repairs the gastrointestinal tract, and itsSnigdha, or sweet, quality gives it a Pranaropana (life-restoring) capacity.
2. Madhyam or middle-aged coconut: In addition to water, the coconut at this stage has some soft pulp. Madhyam coconuts have less water than tender ones, but more water than mature coconuts. The water is slightly milky at this age. In the classical ayurvedic texts called Raj Nighantus, the middle-aged coconut is said to be the most nutritious. This type generally has more carbohydrates, protein, minerals, phosphorus, and vitamins A, B, and C than the other two forms.
3. Pakva or mature coconut: This type of coconut has firm "meat" or pulp, and very little water. Ancient ayurvedic scholar Bhav Mishra wrote that when a coconut becomes mature, it becomes heavy to digest, and it can also aggravate Pitta or vata if the digestive agni of the individual is low. Mature coconuts can also build up toxic ama by interfering with digestion. If large quantities of this variety are consumed daily, then a person can suffer hyperacidity, and worse still, elevated cholesterol levels.
Therefore, people who have low agni, or digestive power, are not advised to eat mature coconut, unless it is combined with ingredients that balance its negative properties.
Dr. Binni Shah: Very good in intestinal immobility and heart disease as rich in potacium. Excessive use is harmfull due to the same reason
Vd. Dhruti Kagrana: For external coconut is wound healing.
Dr. Pina Patel: Coconut oil is contraindicated in hypertension
Dr. Meghdoot Satvekar: Activated charcoal  made from coconut shells is a potent natural treatment used to trap toxins and chemicals in the body, allowing them to be flushed out so the body doesn’t reabsorb them. It’s made from a variety of sources, but when used for natural healing, it’s important to select activated charcoal made from coconut shells or other natural sources.
One of the most popular activated charcoal uses is for the safe and effective treatment of poisoning and drug overdoses. It’s used in emergency trauma centres across the world. In addition, it’s used to reduce bloating and gas, lower cholesterol, treat bile flow problems safely during pregnancy, and even prevent hangovers.
Dr. Suyog Kulkarni:  We regularly use coconut water for shirodhara along with rose water & sandalwood oil. Specially in pittaj shirasshool ( migraine ).
Dr. Meghdoot Satvekar: Coconut oil is high in natural saturated fats. Saturated fats not only increase the healthy cholesterol (known as HDL) in your body, but also help to convert the LDL “bad” cholesterol into good cholesterols.By Increasing the HDL’s in the body, it helps promote heart health, and lower the risk of heart disease.
Satyen: Psoriasis gets controlled with virechan and vaman but reoccur again when a person is exposed to stressful conditions, In that case a patient is advised to seek medical help immediately with the onset of condition and undergo virechan again. Lot of patients regularly visit panchkarma department  of ayurveda University jamnagar
Germany Helga Fuchs: Coconut and high blood pressure? Please clear it up
Dr. Meghdoot Satvekar: Benefits of Coconut Oil for Blood Pressure………..Because coconut oil is approximately 92 percent saturated fat and contains medium chain fatty acids, or Omega-3 fatty acids, it is believed to be better for lowering blood pressure than vegetable oils. The consumption of polyunsaturated fats, such as Omega-6 fatty acids like soybean and vegetable oils, causes your blood vessels to constrict. However, the Omega-3 fatty acids in coconut oil do not have the same effect. In fact, they widen your blood vessels and relieve inflammation of the arteries.
Dr. Madhuri Patil Chaudhari: Narikel lavan -Udarrog.
Dr. Meghdoot Satvekar: Narikel Lavan benefits: It is used in treatment of gastritis, acidity and abdominal pain. Effect on Tridosha – Calms Vata and Pitta. Narikela Lavanam dosage: 1 – 2  grams given along with ghee, once or twice a day before or after food or as directed by your doctor.It is usually administered with a pinch of long pepper. Narikel Lavan Side Effects: In higher doses, it may cause burning sensation and loose motion. It is not ideal to use this medicine in people with excessive tiredness, emaciation and who are underweight. Care should be taken while administering this medicine to people with high BP.
Dr. Arvind panchal: Coconut water is natural source of minerals and carbohydrates……..It's used in bedridden weak patients as natural rehydration
Vd. Manhar Prajapati: If you want normal spotless skin,than  burn dry whole coconut until it becomes charcoal. make smooth powder ( like facepowder) and add castor oil and make paste. APPLY IT ON BURN SKIN.Good for hypotension energetic drink
Vd. Dhruti Nirav Bhatt: For dry Skin or Skin disease apply coconut oil its beneficial in itching ……Hair growth or hair conditioner coconut milk is useful, coconut oil is also useful for burning ……..I suggest patient to take coconut water before evening to avoid gastritis. …………This is very good season for taking coconut water to balance electrolytes
Dr. Sujata Vaidya: Coconut has levorotary potassium. Ideal for vascular health... so for bp
Germany Helga Fuchs: Thank you Dr. Meghdoot. By this, Coconut (oil) is contraindicated in high bloodpressur, right?
Shri Minoo parabia: Not oil, I think he is referring to the salty preparation of coconut lavan is salt.
Dr. Meghdoot Satvekar: Narikel Lavan Ingredients: Narikela – Coconut – Cocos nucifera
Lavana – Rock salt ……….Method of preparation:  Coconut is made a hole in the top. It is filled with rock salt. Wrapped with cloth and burnt in open air. After complete burning, the wrapping and the external shell is removed. The burnt kernel and the salt is powdered and collected.
Dr. J. T. Contractor:  My observation so far:  Coconut oil in cooking by people in Kerala r found dark black hair even elderly people irrespective of sex, they never dye their hair, right from birth coconut is their second food, v can say without any references, the coconut maintains hormone balance responsible for hair melanin & it's thick growth, biochemically still research needed to furthering the precise hormone & immunology
Vd. Suhas Chaudhari: In research, coconut oil  is found as cardio tonic.
Harsh Rathod: This observation can be a very good review artilcle to be published in good journals. For maintaining healthy hair growth in Cohort study.
Dr. Chirag Dobariya: Coconut water use only in good digestion conditions. Coconut water use empty stomach because of after food and in night use coconut water is mostly generates Gases.
Vd. Akshata Swami: Ya, its not righteous info.misleads to non medicos, if v say it as cardiac tonic then they start believe and they get bad effects by consuming these bad cholesterol adulterated coconut oil of market , if research proved then it must b discussed in medicos group.... If coconut is really cardio tonic then no one from anup desh people would ever suffer from santarpanajanya vyadhi like hridroga because it is highly used in those areas
Dr. Jinal Thakkar: Bt daily consumption of narikel water( coconut water)  in pregnant woman often has been found in history of patients with excessive amniotic fluid at term..
Dr. Madhuri Patil Chaudhari: Yes too much tender coconut  water during pregnancy may cause respiratory problems like asthma in kids. Rasdhatu vaigunya may develop.
Vd. Suhas Chaudhari: If coconut oil is cause of cholesterol, then Kerala, srilanka should be home of heart diseases... They use them through centuries... End image of research paper is meta-analysis,which is best after Cochrane data.
Dr. Jinal Thakkar: It is rampantly adviced by practitioners to pregnant women
Vd. Sachin Kadlag: Coconut phruit as well as coconut oil is madhur , snigdha , shita , guru , brihana , balya .
Dr. Jinal Thakkar: Cause is always mutlifold I believe, On kerala ppl don't experience heart diseases mayb because their atmosphere (Desh)  helps digest coconut oil
Vd. Sachin Kadlag: As per ayurveda , drava , madhura , snigdha and guru dravya should be used in the beginning of lunch.
Dr. Jinal Thakkar: Same might not apply to other climate
Vd. Suhas Chaudhari: Desh wise available ahara should be introduce as omega3 rich mustard oil is satmya for Gujarat & saurashtra region
Dr. Jinal Thakkar: So we can't categorise anything as universal in ayurveda…….Everything depends on dashvidha pariksha bhaav described by charaka,Hence research should also be carried out keeping these in mind,Inclusive exclusive criteria should also be thought from an ayurvedic point of view...
Dr. Madhuri Patil Chaudhari: Yes. According to Prakruti, Desh, Dosh, Satmya, & Kaal. Yojana of Chikitsa need to be modified.
Shri Minoo parabia: DISCIPLINE. Anusashan is the key. Any material any habit in excess or with obsession is dangerous. Same holds true to coconut water too. Generalization is again faulty.  Every thing is relative and individualistic. Thats why we need vaidyasBlind following of news could be dangerous indeed.
Vd. Shrinidhi: Nowadays virgin coconut oil is back in the main stream  its health benefits are being highlighted but our ancient sages have already mentioned its significance
Germany Helga Fuchs: Coconutwater, his qualitys are cold. It is clear do not use it in to high quantity. As Preraksir told, this are the main roule for everything. To much or to less can lead to imbalance. How it works out, helphful or not, depends on the state of agni, prakrti, desha, and, and... Coconut oil in Kerala. Or in the Phillipines: people do not use common milkproductes much. Food is very spicy and the caring, cooling quality of coconut is most needed in this foodhabits. Normal milkproductes are heavyer to digest as coconut. In the west, coconut only in summertime, never on evening, in winter or spring. By the way, same with courd.
Vd. Ajay Pithiya: In our region(coastal part of saurastra) coconut trees are more common..  Each and every farm is having some or more coconut trees..  But traditionally we are having a belief that tender coconut water is hot in nature..  Our elders are strictly against to give tender coconut water to pregnant ladies..  If any lady have miscarriage or abortion than they will surely advise to drink tender coconut water for garbhashaya (uterus) suddhi. ……Also they will not advise to drink tender coconut water in burning miturition which is more common in this season.. …….Ayurveda denotes that coconut water is cold in nature..  Also modern science believes same..  ……..But i think traditions are coming from experiences..  Tender coconut water and ripened coconut water..  Are qualities same or differ?  Also samhita denotes that coconut water has basti shodhak action..  What about this? Experts pls share your views
Vd. Krutika Suhas Chaudhary: Basti shodhan is due to shariragata drva vruddhi-> mutravruddhi-> bastishdhana, Still it needs digestion. Should be considered as phala- swaras………And swaras kalpana is guru.In modern view it is advised in pregnancy………….But acco.to ayurved its adhman karak,Not gud for pregnant women  One thinking is that due to aakar satmya...just like head....its oil is good for hair...it really works....Should be pure coconut oil For hair fall…………Suryapaki kalpana...oil prepared in sunlight with coxonut oil is more effective.. I heard so
Dr. Prerak Shah: Yes. I have heard the same. That coconut water drinking during pregnancy helps to build strong head and intelligent brain. But I can't make expert comment on this.But ayurved not described or advised coconut oil...It increase drava gun in body so accordingly it should bw used wisely...
Dr. J. T. Contractor: Coconut water contains phosphorus,calcium, minerals, vitamin D' helps bone/ brain building
Vd. Suhas Chaudhari: नारिकेलफलं शीतं दुर्जरं वस्तिशोधनम् | विष्टम्भि बृंहणं बल्यं वातपित्तास्रदाहनुत् ॥३९|| विशेषतः कोमलनारिकेलं निहन्ति पित्तज्वरपित्तदोषान् |
तदेव जीर्णं गुरु पित्तकारि विदाहि विष्टम्भि मतं भिषग्भिः॥४०||
तस्याम्भः शीतलं हृद्यं दीपनं शुक्रलं लघु | पिपासापित्तजित्स्वादु बस्तिशुद्धिकरं परम्॥४१||
नारिकेलस्य तालस्य खर्जूरस्य शिरांसि तु | कषायस्निग्धमधुरबृंहणानि गुरूणि च॥४२||

 Germany Helga Fuchs: I am thinking about hot nature of Coconut. Comment of Vaidya Ajay. For pregnancy not to much, very clear to me. It is to heavy. We need balanced V and P. To much heavyness is problem, aggreavated V and P is bigger Problem in pregnancy, I think. Hot? Maybe V aggreavated to much due the cold quality. P in pregnancy get stronger and as I know, V is the rouler and if P is very dominant, it increase due high V. Then we get unliked symtoms of to fast working natur. But in a healthy women, with good lifestyle for pregnancy, P should not increase to much. As heavyness should not encrease to much, if women control food and lifestyle. This little Coconut, it is possible to give so much strenght, that women, up to prakruti forget her Natur to one or the other side? Doing to much or resting to much?
