Hello, please advice. I have hypertension, I have been hospitalized several times. In 2008 hypertensive encephalopathy, now on September 23, 2010 with TK 215/120 after dropping medication for pressure. I use: three times a day Tanakan, then Monopril 20, pul Betaxy 20, Agen 5, twice a day Apotic and evening Torwakardu. According to the notice. Doctors are a vascular issue with me. When I use Ginseng, do I improve my vascular status and can I expect to improve pressure and reduce medication? I already feel the side effects of drugs. I am not obese, I am 163 cm and I weigh 64 kg, Thank you very much for the answer of Blanka
hypertension caused by arteriosclerosis or blockage of blood vessels is sometimes transmitted to the brain as hypertensive encephalopathy. Hypertensive encephalopathy is a dangerous disease that often points to so-called malignant hypertension . Hypertensive encephalopathy is characterized by headaches and other nerve symptoms. The popular name "sclerosis" associated with memory deficits, however, refers to "brain sclerosis", and arteriosclerosis does not come from the word. The main threat to hypertensive encephalopathy and malignant hypertension is myocardial infarction and stroke . Your mail fortunately testifies that your case of mental function has not suffered any harm yet. Ginseng is a promising, non-miraculous medicine for you.
According to your description, your blood clogging is so advanced that you need to set your treatment goals very modestly. However, especially in difficult cases like yours, your ginseng has the greatest space to relieve symptoms and prolong life. The gravity of your case is that I would recommend drinking tea with 5g of ginseng a day around noon. This is a high dose at your weight. Higher dosing of ginseng will partially protect your brain even if the sudden stroke really gets you over. Add to Ginseng tea also about 20 fruits of good quality pastry and 2-3 fruits of the datacle . The cheap supermarket shelter should be avoided.
The medications you take are the standard battery against hypertension
By searching the Internet, I found the active ingredients you take:
Tanakan = Ginkgo biloba extract, Chinese herb, adaptogen
Monopril = fosinopril, an ACE inhibitor, blocks the blood pressure-lowering hormone
Betaxa = betaxolol, beta blocker, anti-stress effect
Agen = amlodipine, a Ca 2+ channel blocker in smooth muscle vessels
Apo tic = ticlopidine (ticlopidine), ADP receptor blocker, antithrombotic
Torwacard = atorvastatin, a cholesterol synthesis inhibitor
As the Vacátko council would say, we have the same familiar faces here. And to all that, in such a degree of damage to your blood vessels, you probably do not even have to be obese. You really need to have a problem. Maybe immune . Or other inborn tendencies. Or the polluted environment. Anyway, ginseng helps with cardiovascular diseases and arteriosclerosis , better than Torwacard . Instead of Torwacard try mushrooms , like Monascus purpureus , which contains lovastatin. It can be said that atorvastatin is only a commercial, patentable version of natural lovastatin.
About ticlopidine (Apo tic) I do not know much about memory, does not she take you from sleeping? It could be caffeine out of the way. In any case, its dosage changes slowly, those ADP receptors tend to adapt.
Fosinopril (Monopril) , betaxolol (Betaxa) , amlodipine (Agen) are hardcore chemicals against high blood pressure. They force the relaxation of the vascular muscles and attenuation of the cardiac activity, thus directing the blood pressure down. They have undesirable side effects, but they can not just be put off. Changes in dosage should only be made under constant blood pressure monitoring under the supervision of a physician. In your case, you may never be able to quit.
Ginkgo biloba is a TČM herb and, according to some studies, it has a positive effect on memory. Whether you are buying a ginkgo as a Tanakan or under a different commercial name, make sure that the herb comes from a quality source.
There are no analgesics in your list, so I hope you do not use them. No parallels , aspirins , bruffs . Take the opposite of analgesic - fish oil. Do you know that analgesics essentially block the effect of ω-3 unsaturated fatty acids from fish oil? Do you know that fish oil also reduces pain and improves the functioning of the immune system? It is also recommended in the TČM the sap fat, which contains even more "good" fatty acids. I do not recommend him for snakes.
In addition to gin and ginseng there are certainly other herbs with the potential to help you. I am sorry that my current knowledge does not allow me to give them a specific list.
