Hello doctor,

I am a 55-year-old woman. I have a thyroid problem and systolic hypertension. I am currently taking allopathic medication for my thyroid problem.

Can you please provide me with ayurvedic treatment for hypertension?



Welcome to

I suggest you to send a detailed medical history, like how long you have been suffering from hypertension and thyroid problems and what medications you are currently on. Also, mention your height and weight. Also, are you suffering from any other systemic diseases like diabetes? Kindly provide all of these details. This will help to understand your case better and give appropriate medical advice.

For now, I suggest you follow the instructions given below -

  1. Send me your thyroid test reports, and check your blood pressure regularly.
  2. Avoid excess salt, sugar, ghee, and oily food in your diet.
  3. For now, I suggest you to take Arjun Kwath (ayurvedic medicine). It is an ayurvedic remedy to treat hypertension.
  4. In addition, I will suggest further medications after reviewing your reports.

Kindly consult a specialist, talk with them, and take the medications with their consent.

I hope this helped you out.

Thanks and regards.
