Hypertension from a Holistic Perspective
If You Want to Control Your BP, Then Both the Root Cause and Symptoms of Hypertension Must be Managed Simultaneously!
Hypertension is a condition where blood pressure in the arteries is elevated. A number of factors are responsible for hypertension and if not checked and brought under control, they could prove fatal.
The heart generally increases blood pressure when blood is not reaching the organs like the kidneys and liver, owing to deposits and blockages in the blood vessels of these organs. Holistic Doctors believe that these deposits and blockages in the organs are the main root cause of hypertension. It is, however, unfortunate that Hypertensive medications lower blood pressure without addressing the root cause. This then leads to many who are taking blood pressure lowering medication to have organ failures later in life, as those organs get starved of blood for years. Hypertension is actually one of the prime examples cited by Holistic Doctors when they speak of the short sightedness of western medicine!
Hence it is also important for those suffering from high blood pressure to balance their entire circulatory system and cleanse their organs whilst taking drugs to lower their blood pressure.
How do Biogetica Doctors formulate their Circulatory Health Protocols?
Numerous Herbs supplements and Homeopathic remedies have been studied globally for circulatory balance. Below is information on the more compelling and popular ones that we have found after studying all possibilities from traditional medicine systems and the latest research available today.
Each country’s laws on natural medicine are different and therefore no blanket claims of a hypertension cure or treatment can be made legally across various lands. Some countries consider Ayurveda, TCM and Homeopathy to be medicine and others do not.
However, it is your birth right to know about and choose any herb, supplement or homeopathic you wish to take for cardiovascular health and overall wellbeing as long as the manufacturer does not claim that they cure a particular disease!
We strive each day to give natural medicine the respect it deserves and hope that you will join us in this quest today. We vow to be with you every step of the way on the road from disease to ease that manifests each day!
Research on Herbal Ingredients
- Garlic: This plant bulb is very popular and is routinely used in ayurveda for its multifarious properties. Garlic is believed to possess constituents that help relax blood vessels, inhibit the function of enzymes responsible for contracting blood vessels, reduce cholesterol thereby removing deposited plaques and activate enzymes that relax blood vessels. Meta-analysis of Garlic studies suggests that garlic may improve blood circulation in the body. 1
- Cardamom: These small pods are rich in antioxidants and minerals that help in optimal functioning of the heart. At the end of a 12 week clinical study on a test group; results suggested that the cardamom dose significantly balanced blood circulation and inhibited clot formation and growth. 2
- Hibiscus sabdariffa: This herb is believed to flush sodium from the blood stream consequently lowering blood volume. It is also potentially thought to hamper the enzymes that contract blood vessels and thus can help regulate blood pressure in the body. In a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial, patients given servings of the extract for 6 weeks reported beneficial effects of the herb on blood pressure readings. 3
- Rauwolfia serpentina: It is a woody plant routinely used in folklore medicines to alleviate a number of problems. The plant contains reserpine, which is believed to support the normal functioning of blood vessels. A clinical study demonstrated that the extract helped lower systolic blood pressure in 85% of patients and diastolic blood pressure in 81% of patients. 4
- Crataegus oxyacantha: This herb also known as Hawthorn seems to exert a host of benefits on cardiovascular health, including reduction of blood pressure, prevention of clots, and increase in blood circulation. A multi centre, double-blind comparative study between the hawthorn extract and captopril on 132 patients saw both the test agents reduce blood flow resistance; however, hawthorn had the added advantage of being a cardio-tonic as well. 5
Research on Homeopathic Ingredients
Several Homeopathic ingredients have also been studied for Circulatory balance.
A randomized double-blind controlled study showed that Hypertensive patients on homeopathic remedies for 6 weeks reported significant decrease in blood pressure readings with substantial relief from other undesirable manifestations. The remedies were well tolerated with no side effects reported. Our B-pease formula contains the exact ingredients which were studied in this trial.
We hope and wish that countries across the globe study this research in the interest of public health and then do the best they can for their citizens that are suffering. High Blood Pressure and Hypertension today is a global pandemic and solving it for the sake of humanity must take precedence over any patent for profit pharmaceutical intentions!

Hypertension in simple words means increased blood pressure. Blood pressure is the force exerted by the blood against the wall of the blood vessel. When this force increases, the blood pressure increases, leading to hypertension. It can be broadly categorized into 2 types: Essential hypertension - where there is no definite cause; and Secondary hypertension -- where the cause is an underlying pathology. It manifests in symptoms like headache, irritability and palpitations, or may produce fatal complications.
The causes of hypertension are as follows:
It is also known as Primary or Idiopathic hypertension. A patient suffering from this type of hypertension has no definable cause for it. 92-94% of hypertensive patients have primary hypertension. Age, race, sex, smoking, alcohol intake, serum cholesterol, glucose intolerance and weight may all alter the prognosis of this disease. The younger the patient when hypertension is first noted; the greater is the reduction in life expectancy, if the condition is left untreated.
A number of lifestyle and environmental factors have been implicated in the development of hypertension. These include obesity, occupation, alcohol intake, family size and crowding. Increased salt intake can also lead to or aggravate essential hypertension.
Renin, an enzyme secreted by the kidneys is observed to behave differently in hypertensive subjects than in normatensive (normal blood pressure) individuals.
Insulin resistance and/or hyperinsulinemia have also been suggested as being responsible for increased blood pressure in some patients with hypertension.
Genetics is considered to be an important contributory factor in the development of hypertension.
Patients suffering from this type of hypertension have a definable cause for it.
a) Renal Hypertension: Hypertension produced by kidney diseases like narrowing of the blood vessels supplying blood to kidney and kidney stones.
b) Endocrine Hypertension: caused due to adrenal gland abnormalities, hyperparathyroidism or oral contraceptives.
c) Hypertension due to Coarctation of the Aorta i.e. narrowing or constriction of the lumen of the aorta (main artery, arising from the heart).
Hypertension usually causes no symptoms. It often goes undetected till it results in some complication, or it is discovered by a doctor who measures blood pressure as part of a routine check-up. A patient suffering from hypertension may have the following symptoms:
1) Headache in the occipital region, dizziness, palpitation, etc, due to elevated blood pressure.
2) Epistaxis (bleeding nose), haematuria (blood in Urine), blurring of vision, dizziness due to transient cerebral ischaemia (decreased blood supply to brain), angina pectoris (chest pain) due to hypertensive vascular disease.
3) Symptoms of underlying disease in case of secondary hypertension such as:
- History of weight gain, round face with truncal obesity in Cushing's Syndrome (disease of adrenal gland)
- History of recent weight loss with flushing, increased perspiration, diarrhea in pheochromocytoma (disease of adrenal gland)
- Muscular development in the upper extremities out of proportion to that of muscular development of lower extremities in coarctation of the aorta, etc.
Diagnosis of Hypertension
It is diagnosed by the physician after a clinical examination of the patient, i.e. Blood Pressure check up.
If the patient's BP is above the normal level it is termed as hypertension.
The normal Blood Pressure of an adult is 120/80 mmHg.
120mmHg is called Systolic blood pressure. Normal systolic pressure for an adult is 120 to 140mmHg.
Systolic pressure exceeding 140mmHg is taken as systolic hypertension.
Normal diastolic pressure for an adult is 70 to 90 mmHg. Diastolic pressure more than 90 mmHg is called as diastolic hypertension.
Thus in general, blood pressure above 140/90mmHg is considered as hypertensive blood pressure.
A systolic pressure between 140 to 159 mmHg is called mild systolic hypertension.
A systolic pressure between 160 to 179 mmHg is called moderate systolic hypertension.
A systolic pressure between 180 to 210 mmHg is called severe systolic hypertension.
A diastolic pressure between 96 mmHg and 109 mmHg is mild diastolic hypertension.
A diastolic pressure between 110mmHg and 119mmHg is called moderate diastolic hypertension.
A diastolic pressure of more than 119mmHg is called severe diastolic hypertension.
After discovering high blood pressure, the physician advises investigations such as ECG, X-Ray of the chest, urine routine and microscopic examination, Serum potassium, Serum creatinine, Serum cholesterol and blood sugar levels.
On clinical examination, if the physician suspects some disorder to be responsible for hypertension i.e. secondary hypertension, he advises further investigations such as abdominal sonography, ESR, urine VMA estimation (24hrs), nuclear renal scan, and vascular doppler studies of various vessels.
Complications of Untreated Hypertension
- Heart failure
- Myocardial Infarction
- Angina pectoris
- Cerebral Infarction (Stroke)
- Cerebral hemorrhage
- Kidney failure
The peer-reviewed published research quoted on this page represents some of the studies done on natural remedies for Hypertension. More such studies can be found on pubmed or google scholar. Our doctors participate in or evaluate research from all traditions before formulating our precedent-setting kits. However, the laws on natural medicine vary, from country to country, and we, therefore, make no claims beyond those made by the FDA in your country who is the only authority that can legally make a claim to cure, treat, or mitigate a disease. You are welcome to discuss this research with your doctors. If they truly care about your health they too will take the time to study it with an open mind. You may then take our all natural products for Circulation support. Biogetica supports you in your right to know and chose and we vow to be with you every step of the way. No one will be turned away from receiving our natural remedies even if they cannot pay.
Conventional Treatment Options
Anti Hypertensive drugs including Diuretics, Angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors, Angiotensin II receptor blockers (ARBs), Beta blockers, and Calcium channel blockers (CCBs) are the most popular US FDA approved treatments of Hypertension or High Blood Pressure and you should consult a licensed Doctor for the diagnosis, treatment and "cure" of Hypertension if you reside in the USA.
A list of allopathic medicines and their effects:
- Beta adrenergic antagonists include drugs such as atenolol, metroprolol, propranolol, and pinodalol. These drugs have a lot of side-effects such as Raynaud's phenomenon, impotence, loss of sleep, depression and nasal congestion. Abrupt withdrawal can result in angina pectoris.
- Alpha adrenergic antagonists include drugs such as Prazosin, Doxazosin and Phentolamine. Reported Side-effects of these medicines are syncope, drowsiness, and headache.
- Alpha & Beta adrenergic blockers such as abetalol cause paraesthesia, postural hypotension and positive antinuclear antibody.
- Centrally acting adrenergic agents include Clonidine. The side-effects include drowsiness, dry mouth, galactorrhea and sexual dysfunction.
- Calcium channel antagonists include Verapamil, Diltizem, Nifedipine, Amlodipine, and Nicardipine. Side-effects like nausea, headache, rash, edema, flushing, and constipation show up after long periods of use.
- Angiotensin converting enzyme Inhibitors include Captopril, Enalapril, Ramipril, etc. The side-effects include dry cough, hypotension, angioneurotic oedema, glomerulopathy, and leucopoenia.
- Diuretics usually prescribed areHydrochlorothiazide, Furesenide, Spironalactone, etc. The side-effects include weakness, muscle cramps, impotence, pancreatitis ototoxicity and gynecomastia.
- Directly acting vasodilators include drugs such as hydralazine, and minoxidil. The side-effects are headache, nausea, systemic lupus like syndrome and weight gain.
- In cases of severe hypertension that is uncontrollable, intravenous drugs such as Sodium Nitroprusside, Nitroglycerine, Labetalol, and Esmalol are used. But these also have their side-effects.
Why Do High Blood Pressure Drugs not Cure Hypertension?
All the different FDA approved drugs are known to only treat the symptoms superficially and not address the root cause of the problem. Most of the drugs aim to lower blood pressure by either inhibiting impulses, receptors or hormones that contract blood vessels so that they remain relaxed thus lowering BP; or flush water and salt from your body thereby reducing the volume of the blood; or make the heart beat slow down so that it pumps with lesser force. They do nothing to address the blockages in the organs which are causing the heart to pump harder.
There could be several factors that contribute to your high BP and your Doctor needs to make a right diagnosis to choose the right type of medication and this often leads to considerable trial and error.
Typically conventional medicines are known to cause a host of side effects. For e.g. Diuretics could cause Kidney damage, erectile dysfunction, digestive disorders, vision problems and loss of other vital minerals among others.
Potential side effects of (ACE) inhibitors include a persistent dry cough, loss of taste and skin rashes.
Calcium channel blockers may cause dizziness, constipation, palpitations etc.
Thus, hypertensive drugs need to be monitored regularly.
Complementary Natural Care
Hypertension or high blood pressure cannot be treated with over the counter homeopathy, Ayurveda or Supplements in most countries. No Natural products are approved by the FDA for Hypertension treatment. Natural products at best can be used for general cardiac and circulatory health.
Our ground breaking therapeutic kits are a combination of Advanced Nutraceuticals, Standardized herbal extracts and bio-energetic resonance homeopathies that are traditionally believed to balance the circulatory system. **
General Precautionary measures
Due to increasing stress levels and sedentary lifestyles, hypertension or high blood pressure has become a major lifestyle concern today. The body increases its blood pressure to compensate for poor supply of blood supply to the organs, more so when the blood vessels are clogged with fat, thrombotic or calciferous accumulations. The following general precautionary measures against Hypertension are highly recommended.
- Weight reduction, especially in patients who weigh more than 10% of their ideal body weight
- Reduction in Alcohol consumption.
- Dietary management: Salt restriction; Restriction in the intake of saturated fats; Caloric restriction should be urged in overweight Patients. Potassium supplements are advised in cases of decreased potassium levels.
- Regular exercise such as walking, running, swimming etc.
- Relieving stress with relaxation methods such as listening to music, gardening, playing games, yoga and meditation.
Biogetica’s mission is to provide you with integrated natural solutions that target root issues across the physical, energetic and informational spectrum of your life. Our Doctors research all possible ingredients and combine them synergistically into kits to potentially lead you back to health and freedom.
Biogetica's approach to healing is based on the following aspects:
1. Heal the Entire Being
2. Look for Natural Solutions
3. Appeal to the Balancing Forces Inherent in all Nature
4. From Medication to Meditation
1. Heal the Entire Being:
Biogetica has a unique and comprehensive Holographic model of healing which synthesizes all the traditional natural health systems to simultaneously ease physical, mental, emotional layers of your being.
You, as a living, thinking, feeling, vibrating being, are much more than a collection of inter-related chemical processes. You are life itself. Life can never be reduced to a series of chemical reactions as chemical reactions cannot create life. Every thought, emotion, vibration or action leads to a series of chemical changes in the body. Biogetica recognizes this and balances the ENTIRE BEING, bringing mind, body, and soul into harmony. Treating an ailment on a molecular level alone, seldom has a lasting effect as the untreated social, emotional, mental, spiritual and energetic patterns cause the ailment to manifest once again on a physical plane. Holistic healing is necessary for lasting relief. Biogetica, therefore, uses Resonance Homeopathic to harmonize the entire being; flower essences to attune the mind; Ayurvedic, Tibetan, and Chinese herbs to balance the energetic and the physiological manifestation of the five elements; and nutraceuticals to coordinate cellular nutrition.
2. Look for Natural Solutions:
Our bodies are made of and supported by nature and therefore can only be healed by nature in the long term. Chemicals are often necessary for immediate change in an acute situation but tend to do the body more harm than good in the long run. Hence, Biogetica's Doctors are dedicated to providing natural solutions that are supported by evidence and prior use. To us, the argument is fairly obvious: One would use wood to fix a desk made of wood or metal to fix a car made of metal, so why use chemicals to fix a body made of nature?
Nature has blessed the Earth with natural remedies and healing mechanisms. It would be wise not to ignore them. The intelligence of nature is much greater than that of man. Unfortunately, man still focuses on chemical medicines, as they can be patented and sold for huge profits. Allopathic attempts to treat chronic ailments by interfering directly with the chemical processes using man-made substances have essentially been a failure. We claim to be cracking the gene code, but we still can't cure a cold with man-made substances!!! Homeopathic and Naturopathic methods are never studied and verified by governing bodies, as there is no one who will spend millions obtaining an approval on herbs, knowing that they cannot be patented and sold exclusively by them.
3. Appeal to the Balancing Forces Inherent in all Nature:
Life cannot be recreated with chemical interactions and there is much more to life than molecular interactions. Our bodies are the most advanced pharmacies on the planet and millions of functions happen each minute with astounding precision. Biogetica therapies are designed to appeal to the balancing forces apparent in all nature by reminding and stimulating the body towards a certain function. The nutraceuticals in our kits provide specific nutrition for a function, the herbs in our kits balance the terrain of the body so that it is able to perform that function and the resonance homeopathies are designed to remind the body to be in resonance with that very function.
4. From Medication to Meditation:
Good health and freedom involve every aspect of our being including diet, lifestyle, exercise, emotional states, thoughts and energetic patterns. Biogetica Drs have therefore designed diet, nutrition, exercise, and meditation protocols specific to various life situations. We encourage you to actively partake in these for best results.
