Hypertension is commonest chronic non communicable disorder found all over world. It is also called as silent killer because in this patient remain mostly asymptomatic. But on the other hand it causes target organ damage; it is also a major risk factor for Coronary vascular diseases like Stroke and myocardial infarction. It is a global health problem affecting the people of different ethnicity & ages around the world. In modern medicine the aim of the treatment for hypertension is to prevent the risk of coronary heart disease & cardiovascular disease. Hypertension is not mentioned in Ayurvedic text as it is, but on the basis of Ayurvedic principle we can understand the Samaprapti (ethiopathogenesis) of Hypertension & according to that we can treat the disease. Thinking about the disease the main causative factor is vitiated Vata, it may be only Vata or in combination with Pitta or Kapha or obstructive Vata vitiation. According to etiology we can treat the disease in two ways either by Shamana Chikitsa (only medicine) or by Shodhana Chikitsa (purificatory procedures).
