Five harbingers of hypertension

Last updated on November 9th, 2019 at 11:36 am

The five attributes of hypertension are obesity, lack of exercise, excessive sodium, stress and diet.Obesity:-Regulated diet and regular exercise can cure obesity.


There is no substitute to exercise. It should not be strenuous and should be of recommended type. Morning walk for an hour or so will do wonders.

Excessive sodium:-

It can be controlled by making it a habit during cooking and intake.


We can get rid of stress by our personal cultivation of the habit of smiling away the serious and not taking heavily dilapidation and disaster in any form. Too much of stress brings in depression which not only upsets mental balance, but invites blood vessels to be brimful, inviting heart attack when it is at its zenith.


I am going for the role of cereals only in our daily diet without going deep into the dietary provisions for hypertension patients. It cannot be generalized as most of those who suffer from high blood pressure also suffer from diabetes. So both the diets overlap each other and a menu is prepared taking into account the constitution and the condition of the patient besides other things. Cereal in our daily diet is a malady for hypertension and must be our lunch and dinner accompaniment.

Common to all patients suffering from diabetes and blood-pressure is consumption of cereals on daily basis. Cereal of whole-grain variety should be taken a bowlful each day and it reduces the risk of hypertension by 20%. According to researchers, consumption of cereal is a preventive and the cure is the life we live, coupled with our food habit and exercise.

Refined grains are less effective for the reason that fiber and nutrient-rich parts are removed for better look and better taste.However, this benefit may not be claimed in respect of women though extensive researches are now on to find out answer to it.


Caught by the whirlpool of events, situations and surroundings, we all suffer from this dreaded disease at some point of time or the other. At the outset, we must realize and admit that we suffer from this disease when we are actually attacked. Unless we accept this fact, we become its victim and cure-process cannot be executed.

There is no scientific method for the cure of depression. The main causes of depression should be unearthed and only then we can try not to be overpowered by it. A patient should be a doctor unto himself to combat depression for a healthy and no-tension life.
