Abstract
Around 20% of the population are in prehypertension stage, and nearly 40% of the adult population from Hypertension (HTN). Blood Pressure Management Program (BPMP) is an Ayurvedic treatment strategy using Panchakarma. This study was conducted to evaluate the effect of BPMP on systolic blood pressure (SBP), diastolic blood pressure (DBP), mean arterial pressure (MAP), body mass index (BMI) and dependency on conventional therapy in elderly male patients of HTN. This observational study was conducted from January 2017 to February 2018, wherein the data of HTN patients who attended Madhavbaug clinics in Maharashtra, India were identified. Data of patients who were administered BPMP (60-75 minutes) with minimum 6 sittings over 90 days (± 15 days) were considered. Variables were compared between day 1 and day 90 of BPMP. Out of 29 enrolled patients, 24 were finally selected for analysis. BPMP showed significant improvement in SBP by 24.66 (from 150.67 ±12.97 to 126 ± 13.01; p<0.001), DBP by 10.8 (from 87.7917 ±7.72 to 76.917 ±7.59, p< 0.001), MAP by 15.4 (from 108.75 ±7.14 to 93.25 ±8.72, p<0.001). BMI (25.7275 ±2.63 kg/m2 to 24.91 ±2.32 kg/m2), also showed significant reduction. Dependency on concomitant medicines was reduced, with the number of patients on no concomitant medicines increasing from 19% to 29%. BPMP can serve as an effective therapeutic regiment to combat HTN in elderly male patients.
