Abstract

ROLE OF RAUWOLFIA IN CASE OF HYPERTENSION – A REVIEW ARTICLE

*Dr. Satyender Kumar

ABSTRACT

Blood pressure is the force exerted by the blood against the walls of blood vessels and the magnitude of this force depends on the cardiac output and the resistance of the blood vessels. When heart beats, it pushes blood through arteries to the rest of your body. When the blood pushes harder against the walls of arteries, blood pressure goes up. Blood pressure may be different at different times of the day. It is usually higher when you first wake up, after you exercise, or when you are under stress. Having higher blood pressure for short amounts of time is normal. However, when blood pressure stays high for most of the time, it can cause serious health problems. In Ayurveda we do not have any straight references regarding the explanation of a disease or syndrome which resembles Hypertension. But we can make a close comparison to a few drugs which helps in treating this disease like sarpagandha(Rauwolfia) and draw an inference from its basics. Hence an attempt was made to review Rauwolfia in treatment of Hypertension.

Keywords: Rouwolfia, hypertension, cardiac problems
