What is Pulmonary Hypertension?
Pulmonary Hypertension -- basically high blood pressure in the lungs, or rather the vascular system servicing the lungs -- is a serious medical condition that be overall degenerative to your health and lead eventually to death. As blood vessels running between the lungs and heart become blocked or damaged, lung function is impaired and oxygenation of the heart and blood is reduced. This results in increased damage to the heart and lungs, causing fatigue and general ill health.
Symptoms of Pulmonary Hypertension include fatigue and dizziness, chest pain or pressure, heart palpitations, edema, and an inability to catch your breath that worsens over time.
Natural Cures for Pulmonary Hypertension
Quit smoking. Moderate exercise can improve cardiopulmonary efficiency. A heart-healthy diet can improve vascular health, and this may include natural supplements such as apple cider vinegar or ginkgo biloba.
I'm reading these posts and would like to know if this mullen, lobelia and hyssop tea would help someone with primary pulmonary hypertension? My mom has had it for about 6 years and has trouble breathing when she exerts herself, sometimes just making the bed is difficult for her.Or maybe someone has some other ideas? Krista
