Mukta Vati for High Blood Pressure

Mukta Vati for High Blood Pressure:

Do you  wonder what your blood pressure numbers reading mean? Doctors call them systolic (the top number) and diastolic (the bottom number) pressure.

Knowing both is important and could save your life.

The only way to know (diagnose) if you have high blood pressure (HBP or hypertension) is to have your blood pressure tested. Understanding your blood pressure numbers is key to controlling high blood pressure.

 

Blood Pressure mukta vati

What Does the Systolic Pressure Number Mean?

When your heart beats, it squeezes and pushes blood through your arteries to the rest of your body. This force creates pressure on those blood vessels, and that’s your systolic blood pressure.

A normal systolic pressure is below 120.

A reading of 120-129 is elevated.130-139 is stage 1 high blood pressure (also called hypertension).140 or more is stage 2 hypertension.180 or more is a hypertensive crisis. Call 911.

What Does the Diastolic Pressure Number Mean?

The diastolic reading, or the bottom number, is the pressure in the arteries when the heart rests between beats. This is the time when the heart fills with blood and gets oxygen.

A normal diastolic pressure is lower than 80. But even if your diastolic number is lower than 80, you can have elevated blood pressure if the systolic reading is 120-129.

80-89 is stage 1 hypertension.

90 or more is stage 2 hypertension.

120 or more is a hypertensive crisis. Call 911.

Our charts below have more details.

How Is Blood Pressure Measured?

A doctor or nurse will measure your pressure with a small gauge attached to an inflatable cuff. It’s simple and painless.

The person taking your pressure wraps the cuff around your upper arm. Some cuffs go around the forearm or wrist, but often they aren’t as accurate.

Your doctor or nurse will use a stethoscope to listen to the blood moving through your artery.

She’ll inflate the cuff to a pressure higher than your systolic pressure, and it will tighten around your arm. Then she’ll release it. As the cuff deflates, the first sound she hears through the stethoscope is the systolic blood pressure. It sounds like a whooshing noise. The point where this noise goes away marks the diastolic blood pressure.

In a blood pressure reading, the systolic number always comes first, and then the diastolic number. For example, your numbers may be “120 over 80” or written as 120/80.

Increase activity and exercise more

Patanjali Yoga Sutra

Patanjali Yoga Sutra

 

The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali succinctly outlines the art and science of Yoga meditation
for Self-Realization. It is a process of systematically encountering, examining, and
transcending each of the various gross and subtle levels of false identity in the mind
field, until the jewel of the true Self comes shining through.
This is an interpretive translation of the Yoga Sutra, expanding the number of English
words, so as to allow the practical instructions to be clearer. The
practices of the Yoga Sutras are extremely practical, though it can seem quite
complicated when trying to sort through the language. By providing expanded,
interpretive translations, the practical meaning of the suggestions more easily comes
through. The individual transliterated Sanskrit words also have a large number of
English translations, so as to give a more thorough understanding.
Commentaries on the Sutras are on www.SwamiJ.com, as well as other learning aids.
These include an extensive Introduction, a Main page presenting a visual outline and
summary of the entire Yoga Sutra, and a list of Reminder Questions, which serve as a
self-study guide.

When Patanjali codified or compiled the Yoga Sutras

It was not that a new system
was created, but rather, the ancient practices were summarized in an extremely
organized and terse way. While the Yoga Sutras are thought to be as old as 400 BCE,
archaeological evidence and other texts suggest that the methods described in the
Yoga Sutras were being practiced as early as 3000 BCE. Oral tradition states that the
period may be even longer.
Yoga means union of the parts of ourselves, which were never divided in the first
place. Yoga literally means to yoke, from the root yuj, which means to join; it is the
same as the absorption in the state of samadhi. Sutra means thread, and this thread,
or multiple threads weave a tapestry of insight and direct experience.
Swami Rama explains, “There have been many scholarly commentaries on the Yoga
Sutras, but all the commentaries miss something very practical. Such commentaries
can only satisfy the intellect, but do not actually help you beyond that: ‘yogash chitta
vritti narodha’–yoga is the control of the ‘modifications’ of the mind. Narodha means
control; there is no other English word for it. Control doesn’t mean suppression, but
channeling or regulating.”

Himalaya

In the tradition of the Himalayan masters, Yoga, Vedanta, and Tantra complement one
another, leading one systematically along the path to Self-realization. The aspirant
clears the mind through the practice of Yoga meditation as codified in the Yoga Sutras
of Patanjali, does self-enquiry of Vedanta, and then breaks through the final barrier
with Tantra, experiencing the heights of kundalini awakening.

Dental Hygiene Tips

Dental Hygiene Tips

Dental Hygiene

Trouble caused due to Tooth decay in the dental cavity. Bacteria in the mouth are located in tongue, saliva, mucous membrane, dental plaque .

Bacteria microflora is present in the entire oral cavity, it is related to the general body diseases in the body.  Microflora is present due to use of medicines, stress and poor oral hygiene, tooth decay, inflammation of the gum, subsequent loss of jaw bone loss, and all over the bad breath. What to do? Get your tooth checked! Regularly! The application can not be completely eliminated, it can be controlled by mechanically removing and using local chemical burners.

Daily use of products that balance the pH of the mouth, prevent tooth decay and refresh your breath. The most popular of the active substances is  fluoride . The concentration depends on the effectiveness of strengthening the tooth enamel. The chemical xylitol are increasingly being used . It is a natural source of sweeteners with an antibacterial property. Some of the remedies include alcohol as a flavor enhancer and preservative, but it also drains the oral mucous membrane, so we advise you to choose a non-alcoholic rinse aid. It is important to use flushing agents in patients with diabetes mellitus and other chronic diseases during irradiation and chemotherapy, as well as for elderly people with mild to moderate physical dysfunction of the teeth.

Dental Hygiene is particularly important for children. For children, it is advisable to use a rinse aid because they are often unable to clean their teeth properly, as well as to be interested in the oral care ritual. Usually rinsing agents can be started to be used from the age of six years. Allergic children should avoid using them. In children’s mouthwash, fluoride is particularly important as it promotes the development and protection of new teeth. 

All types of rinses are easy, but important. In order to benefit the mouth should be rinsed with full force, so that the liquid penetrates into all gaps. The mouthwash should be used after brushing your teeth with a good herbal toothpaste and then you should not eat or drink for half an hour. The shelf life of the product should be observed.

For Dental Hygiene Mouthwash does not replace teeth cleaning!

Himalaya mouthwash is a mouthwash containing fluoride (0.2% NaF) with clinically proven efficacy in strengthening tooth enamel.

Regular use of Himalaya mouthwash prevents the formation of caries.

It is available in fresh flavor and light peppermint flavor, contains no alcohol and parabens. The doser provides an accurate daily dose of fluoride.

Himalaya mouthwash oral rinse aid should be used to clean teeth with fluoride-containing toothpaste.

 

Who should use Himalaya mouthwash:

  • Everyone who cares about your Dental Hygiene;
  • if you like snacks;
  • if carbonated lemonade is used;
  • if the teeth suffer from caries, tartar or dental treatment (sealing);
  • if braces are worn;
  • if sensitive teeth;
  • if the gum has resigned from the teeth;
  • if salivation (dry mouth syndrome) is reduced.

Tips for Healthy Eating to Fight Stress

Tips for Healthy Eating to Fight Stress

Stress

Photo: pixabay.com

Almost everyone has their favourite dishes that calm them down when they are struggling with stress; each of these dishes may be different. For someone, these are foods that bring to mind our childhood, such as milk. Others crave for chocolate and sweets that enhance serotonin development.

Since stress can damage the digestive system and its function, foods that are usually easily digestible when experiencing stress can cause digestive problems and heartburn. Since fatty foods make the body digest slowly, it is advisable to avoid them as much as possible. For some people, struggling with stress, hot and sharp foods also cause problems.

Tips for eating when struggling with stress

  • There is no diet that can make you feel stressed, but there are ways that can help you survive a stressful period of stress.
  • Eat breakfast. It’s even harder for a failed person to cope with stress.
  • Eat slowly. Eating a steak usually causes digestive problems, which due to stress, can cause digestion problems of fast-eaten foods.
  • Do not have a diet. Even in the calmest and best times, eating habits are stressful.
  • Limit the intake of caffeine and alcohol. These two substances can affect mood and sleep. Alcohol depression can only be deepened.
  • Listen to your body and avoid using foods that cause discomfort and indigestion.

Avoid drinks containing caffeine as they can cause nervousness. Instead, try the herbal tea, such as chamomile and peppermint tea, which soothes. You can drink low-fat milk or fruit juice. If you drink coffee, choose decaffeinated coffee. Remember that you can more easily deal with everything that life offers to you if you eat and eat enough and you will also look better.
