How Sanjiu Chinese Medicine Help Treat Hypertension

Essential, hypertension is chronic high blood pressure with no identifiable cause. In the early stage, there are symptoms of dizziness, headache, palpitation (noticeable and irregular heartbeat), insomnia, tinnitus (ringing in the ears), lassitude, polyuria (increased urine production) and epistaxis (bleeding from the nose), etc. In the late stage the organs such as the heart, brain, kidneys and others may be involved. It belongs to the category of "dizziness" and "headache" in traditional Chinese medicine.

Symptoms
(a) Common symptoms are dizziness, headache, head distention, restlessness, temperamental tendency, insomnia, palpitation, and numbness of extremities.
(b)Hypertension is defined as having the blood pressure greater than 140/90mmHg (18.7/12.0kPa).The elevation of diastolic pressure is of more significance for clinical diagnosis.
(c) In severe cases or cases of long duration functions of the heart, brain and kidney may be compromised with the presentation of relevant clinical manifestations.
(d) In some patients, blood pressure may be markedly elevated abruptly under certain precipitating factors accompanied with severe headache, dizziness, nausea and vomiting, which is called "hypertension crisis". If disturbance of consciousness, convulsion (fits), transient hemiplegia (weakness of one half of the body) or aphasia (speechlessness caused by disease or injury to a part of the brain) are present, the condition is known as "hypertensive encephalopathy".

TCM Effectiveness and Evaluation
TCM can effectively treat hypertension. Not only the TCM's treatment improves symptoms obviously, but also the therapy lessens side effects. Western medicine & TCM are effective in alleviating weaknesses. However,TCM results in less side effects and also helps in reversing damage to the target organs. It is advisable to practice Qigong every day to consolidate effect of treatment.
