Blood pressure is the force exerted by the flow of blood on the walls of blood vessels ,when this blood pressure is persistently high in the arteries then this elevation of pressure is called hypertension
In Ayurveda it is not mentioned as a disease separately but we can say it is raktavata or rakatgatvat , which is due to vitiation of Rakta and vitiation of Vata .When a person doesn’t follow his lifestyle according dincharya(daily routine including diet, exercise, sleep and aacharrasayan ( activities which give us mentally relaxation and peace) , ritucharya ( follow regime according seasons) and bharhamcharaya, it’s creates imbalance between dosha and dhatva . Vitiation of tridosha and rakta are responsible for hypertension. Especially fives type of vata, pachak, saadhak and alochak pitta , avlambhak kapha are responsible for its aetiology.
