Abstract

There is no clear mention of hypertension in the Ayurvedic Classics. From an Ayurvedic standpoint, a number of hypotheses have been put up to explain hypertension, but none of them can be officially recognized. By using Dosha, Dushya, and Samprapti, a doctor can attempt to determine the etiology of an illness in cases when the patient's symptoms are unclear, according to Ayurvedic law. According to Ayurveda, the participation of Vata pradhan Tridoshas in vitiated Doshas helps explain hypertension. The functioning of the different srotas of circulation is hampered by the Avarana of Vata Dosha by Pitta and Kapha, which is seen in the Rasa-Rakta Dhatus. Understanding hypertension fully from an Ayurvedic perspective has therefore been our top priority. Thus, in order to aid in both treatment and prevention, an attempt is made here to comprehend hypertension in terms of Ayurveda.
