Hypertension is a “silent, invisible killer” that rarely causes symptoms. One of the key risk factors for cardiovascular disease is hypertension. And so On this world hypertension day, our goal is to increase awareness and overcome hypertension with what we have under our control. Hypertension has become a global public health issue. Raised blood pressure is a serious warning sign that significant lifestyle changes are urgently needed. While medical interventions are necessary and please consult your healthcare practitioner for those, I wanted to share what I have in my toolkit- powerful nutritional and lifestyle interventions that can make an impact in reducing the risk of hypertension.
Attached below are presentation slides from a workshop I did on World Hypertension day for students of Delhi Pharmaceutical Sciences and Research University (DPSRU).
