High Blood Pressure and the Stress of Life and Death Decisions
Updated: Aug 29, 2019
A case of High Blood pressure and its treatment with homeopathic remedies
An air force officer approached me asking for treatment for his elevated Blood pressure which had been growing worse over the last 4 years. As a meteorologist he was responsible for the weather forecast at the military airport and with his recent job transition to air traffic control the workload and pressure added even more strain to his already tense job situation. In fact he was substituting for colleagues who under much pressure of air traffic control were in prolonged medical treatment. For 2 years he had been taking 4 mg Perindopril daily and on recent examination his doctor recommended to increase the dosage in order to stabilize his BP. The patient was otherwise healthy.
The daily intake of Barium carbonicum, a potentized and diluted form of the crude substance stabilized the blood pressure. After four weeks of treatment the patient went off his Blood pressure medication and has not needed it since.
This is one of many scenarios where the weight of external pressure and relentless alertness causes a stress situation that can trigger high Blood pressure in some people. It affects many in leading positions and in people who carry the burden of superhuman responsibility. In these cases homeopathic remedies can have an immediate effect as demonstrated in this case.
Admitted, not every case with high Blood pressure is resolved in such a short time. In people with kidney disease and vascular disease treatment will differ and last longer while dietary recommendations need to be heeded. But this case inspires us to check out for what Homeopathy has to offer.
