Ayurveda as a preventive system of medicine has very important role to play for Life Style Disorder. The most common Life Style Disorder which is striking the individual at an early age is diabetes, cardio vascular diseases, hypertension etc. The present study is an attempt to verify the co-relation of practice of Ayurvedic principles in hypertension. Hypertension is not mentioned in Ayurveds compendia, but Dosha imbalance is the key factor for development of any disease according to Ayurveda. The pattern of Ahara and Vihara was observed and recorded in 100 subjects suffering from Essential Hypertension and 100 healthy volunteers having normal blood pressure. They were randomly selected by Lottery method from OPD and IPD of the institutional hospital. After obtaining informed consent from the subjects, both the subjects (hypertensive and normotensive) were given the proforma and all answers were recorded after thorough interrogation. The two groups were compared. It is seen that Ahara and Vihara plays an important role in proliferation and development of hypertension and hence it is highly recommended that following the principle of Ayurveda results in effective control of Hypertension.
