Hypertension, is another term for high blood pressure which means high tension in the arteries. Arteries carry blood to all the tissues and organs of the body and when the pressure of the blood carried through the arteries is increased or decreased, the organs in the body are affected. One of the main causes of High blood pressure is stress.
There are two readings in blood pressure: Systolic pressure and Diastolic pressure. Systolic pressure is the pressure generated as the heart contracts and pumps blood forward into the arteries. Diastolic pressure is the pressure generated as the heart relaxes after the contraction. Imbalance in any of these causes problems for the normal function of organs.
Causes And Solution
The increase or decrease in the blood pressure than the normal levels risk the development of heart disease, kidney disease, hardening of the arteries, eye damage, and brain stroke.
The symptoms of hypertension include: Chest pain, confusion, ear noise or buzzing, irregular heartbeat, nosebleed, tiredness, vision changes.
Nitaai Breathing exercise is an effective tool for lowering high blood pressure and is far better than having to consume allopathic medications which can have adverse side effects.
Nitaai Breathing, is a form of deep corrective breathing exercise where one has to inhale slowly and while exhaling resonate “Nitaaaai” audibly. Whilst doing this, “Ni” is short, “taa” is long and “i” is short again. Initially, this can done for 10 minutes a day, and then gradually increased.
Nitaai Breathing causes stress levels to fall significantly, and all organs within the body start functioning normally. Calming effects of Nitaai breathing correct the imbalanced autonomic nervous system. In this way, our nervous system starts proceeding towards calmer, and more natural resting levels.
Make the Heart Rate Stable
In case of high blood pressure when we practice Nitaai Breathing exercise, our heart rate tends to fall by an average of 5 beats per minutes. There is less release of vasopressin, thus in general, the patient experiences dilation of arteries. It has also been observed that it is two and a half times more effective than muscle relaxation exercises for lowering high blood pressure.
Due to the continuous practice of Nitaai Breathing, a state of arterial softening is generated. The chronic sense of being on edge is reduced, the harmonizing effect is visible on the nervous system. The effect is equally powerful for people suffering from low blood pressure. Nitaai Breathing allows our whole body to rest and repair at a deep level.
