Hypertension, or high blood pressure (BP), is mainly a Pitta disorder. However, there are 3 types of hypertension according to Ayurveda.
Vata, Pitta, and Kapha body types will all show different symptoms, and thus each one needs to be treated in a different manner.
In accordance with the principles of Ayurveda, Hypertension can develop mainly due to two reasons. The first reason is primarily due to having a Kapha body type, in which having an overweight frame along with cholesterol build up causes a reduction of blood vessel volume, therefore increasing peripheral resistance. The second type is due to Pitta or Vata constitutions, and develops as a result of stress and anxiety.
Knowing what type of hypertension is affecting you will help you to manage the condition in a more effective way.*
