The method of hirudotherapy in the treatment of hypertension

The method of hirudotherapy in the treatment of hypertension

In the complex treatment of hypertension, the method of hirudotherapy (treatment with leeches) plays an important role. The course of treatment usually consists of 7-9 procedures (5-6 leeches for each procedure), it is recommended to repeat the treatment twice a year-in autumn and spring, i.e. during possible exacerbations. I have seen from my own experience how effective this treatment is. Having hypertension of the II degree, with the help of herbs, leeches and an appropriate diet, I was able to…

Massage for Hypertension

Massage for Hypertension

Reduction of high blood pressure is achieved by the method of acupressure. Let’s get acquainted with some techniques. With the pad of the left thumb, press down on the point under the lower jaw at the point where the carotid artery pulsates, and hold until the count of ten. Then release, inhale, and push again. After pressing three times on the left side, do the same on the right. Pressure at this point on the carotid artery to a certain…

Nutrition Recommendations

Nutrition Recommendations

Proper nutrition plays an important role in the prevention and treatment of hypertension, although at first glance it may seem that it is not so important what and how to eat. Nevertheless, it is the correct selection of products, as well as a certain diet, that can significantly improve and stabilize the patient’s condition, while the use of prohibited products can significantly worsen the situation. To better understand how to properly make a diet, let’s remember what are the risk…

About methods of treatment of hypertension

About methods of treatment of hypertension

Before we go directly to solving the problem of hypertension, let’s touch on the question of what is hypertension, what factors contribute to the development of this disease and what consequences an increase in blood pressure leads to. Hypertension is a disease characterized by a constant, and in the initial stages – periodic increase in blood pressure. The main mechanisms leading to this disease – consistently high blood pressure-are known. The first and leading among them is the nervous mechanism….

Combined Preparation

Combined Preparation

We have already mentioned that for the treatment of hypertension, not one, but two or three drugs are most often used. This mode of treatment is not very convenient, because every day you have to take several tablets, and remember at what time to take certain medications. For convenience, they produce dosage forms containing a combination of two or three drugs in one tablet. Previously, their disadvantage was the inability to change the dose of drugs included in the combination….

Blockers of alpha1-adrenoreceptors (alpha1-blockers)

Blockers of alpha1-adrenoreceptors (alpha1-blockers)

How do alpha-1 blockers work? Drugs of this group block the receptors (nerve endings) to epinephrine located in the blood vessels, and prevent the action of vasoconstrictors (in particular, epinephrine). As a result, blood vessels expand and blood pressure decreases. What are the different types of alpha1 blockers? There are only 3 drugs of this group. Their main difference is the duration of the action. Short-acting drugs include prazosin, long-acting drugs-doxazosin and terazosin. What are alpha1 blockers good for? Alpha…

Imidazoline Receptor Agonists

Imidazoline Receptor Agonists

How do imidazoline receptor agonists work? Interact with imidazoline receptors in the Central nervous system, and through them participate in the regulation of the tone of the sympathetic nervous system. There is a decrease in the Pressor (increase in blood PRESSURE) action of the sympathetic system, systolic and diastolic blood PRESSURE, peripheral vascular resistance decreases, while the cardiac output and heart rate do not change significantly. What are the current imidazoline receptor agonists? Currently, moxonidine is widely used in medical…

Angiotensin Receptor Blockers

Angiotensin Receptor Blockers

How do AT1-receptor blockers work? According to the mechanism of action, angiotensin receptor blockers (BAR), as well as ACE inhibitors, affect the ReninAngiotensin system. However, this class works “more targeted”, since it removes the excess effects of angiotensin and aldosterone by blocking the at-receptors that these Pressor (blood PRESSURE-boosting) agents affect. THEY prevent the formation of angiotensin, a substance that causes vasoconstriction, and the vessels expand. As a result, blood pressure decreases. What are AT1-receptor blockers? Currently, there are a…

Angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors (ACE inhibitors)

Angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors (ACE inhibitors)

How do ACE inhibitors work? The mechanism of action of ACE inhibitors is complex. Drugs of this group violate (inhibit) the formation of aldosterone and angiotensin, which have a powerful Pressor (increase in blood PRESSURE) effect. These drugs prevent narrowing of blood vessels and as a result reduce blood pressure. In addition, ACE inhibitors have a beneficial effect on the heart, kidneys, metabolism of fats and carbohydrates. What are the different types of ACE inhibitors? In the 70s, the first…

Calcium Antagonist

Calcium Antagonist

How do calcium antagonists work? Calcium antagonists block the flow of calcium to the muscle cells located in the heart and arteries, causing the muscle fibers to relax, the vessels to expand, leading to a decrease in blood pressure. What are the different types of calcium antagonists? All calcium antagonists can be divided into 3 groups depending on their structure. The first group includes nifedipine, amlodipine, felodipine, lacidipine, and isradipine. These drugs act mainly on blood vessels and somewhat accelerate…
