Consult your doctor, because you may be the sufferer of Retroperitoneal Fibrosis.

Happiness is nothing more than good health. Those are fortunate who have the healthy body. But it is awful to keep yourself safe from diseases.

Bottom line of this article is Retroperitoneal Fibrosis. Have your heard this name before? Here we will discuss all the aspects of this disease in detail.

There is the involvement of vata and pitta doshas along with impairment of dhatus (body tissues). Herbs in Ayurveda act as an amazing detoxifier and diuretic. These herbs help to maintain the good urine flow and also support the healthy kidney functions too.

WHAT IS RETROPERITONEAL FIBROSIS?

Retroperitoneal fibrosis is also called as Ormond's disease. This condition is characterized when excess fibrous tissue develops in retroperitoneal area. This area is the space behind stomach and intestine. This excess growth of excess connective tissue causes the formation of mass. This excess growth results in the blockage and compression of ureters. Basically ureters are the tubes that carry urine from kidney to bladder.

Due to the blockage urine gets back into ureters that results in the formation of harmful materials which can cause the kidney damage.

If this disease is not treated timely then it can cause the kidney failure.

blood pressure, high blood pressure, hypertension, diet, lifestyle, home remedies, herbal remedies
  1. Lemons increase Vata + Pitta as they are sour in taste. Blood pressure is caused by Vata + Pitta. So lemons can’t decrease blood pressure. Lemons should not be given to BP patients. All food which is Sour and Spicy in nature should be avoided in BP. 
  2. Fenugreek is hot in Potency. The Virya of Fenugreek is Ushana... It is not recommended for Pitta diseases. It's for Vata+ Kapha diseases like Prameha ( Diabetes) 
  3. So don't give for BP 
  4. Coconut water is ok for BP 
  5. Water melon is ok for BP 
  6. Pomegranate and Bananas are ok for BP.  Green leafy vegetables and other greens are good for BP. Rich in magnesium, rich in calcium, iron, zinc, potassium, manganese, chromium and other anti-oxidants.
  7. Garlic is a disaster for BP. It's ushana, tikshana.. It’s not give to BP patients. They can get stroke. It's very hot in properties. Many studies say it has sulphur, that's why it lowers down BP, but it has many other compounds which are heating for the body and can lead to high BP. 
  8. Onion juice, Cider Vinegar, is bad for BP. It's too hot ( ushana) property. Not good for BP.
  9. Arjun Tea -  Arjuna is cooling ( Sheet Virya) and good to reduce BP as well as cholesterol. Being Astringent, it also cleanses the arteries. So it's excellent for BP and cholesterol. 
  10. Walking is recommended for BP. As Walking leads to prespiration and sweating. That leads to loss of Salt ( Sodium ) from the body. It leads to decrease in BP.
  11. Yoga, Deep Breathing and Pranayama ( Not Kapal Bhati) is good for BP. It helps to give more oxygen to body and brain. It relaxes the muscles. Eliminates the acidic carbon di oxide leading to decrease in BP due to relaxation of arteries. 
  12. Meditation - Meditation leads to relaxation and decrease in levels of adrenalin, which is the leading cause of BP. 
  13. Massage with Dhanwantaram Oil or Sesame Oil with drop of Lavender essential oil - Massage relaxes the tense muscles, relieves anxiety and leads to drop in BP. 
  14. Shirodhara - Dropping of Oil on the forehead - A procedure in Ayurveda is good for BP. It gives relaxation to mind and balances the chakras leading to drop in BP.

Balance with fruits and veggies. Best is to avoid it. 
  19. Homocysteine is a protein which is increased in people suffering from chronic stress, anger, rage, frustration, fear and anxiety and high consumption of proteins. It hardens the arteries. Hard arteries lead to high BP. It's like hardened garden rubber pipe can't adjust itself to more water pressure and gives up. Similarly hardened arteries give up when the pressure is high, that leads to leakage and stroke. Diabetes makes the arteries more friable ( fragile ) leading to their rupture and hemorrhages. 
  20. Herbs for Calming mind - Bramhi, Shankhpushpi, Jatamansi, Tagar, Ashwagandha, Lavender, Chamomile are all good to relax / calm the mind. Use them regularly.
