Abstract

Background: In cardiovascular diseases, Hypertension is a major risk factor and its burden is increasing disproportionately in developing countries as they undergo demographic transition. The World Health Organization (WHO) ranks hypertension as one of the leading causes of premature death worldwide. It is directly responsible for 24% of all coronary heart disease deaths and 57% of all stroke deaths in India. Recent studies in India have shown that the prevalence of hypertension is 25% in urban areas and 10% in rural subjects in India. Systolic and diastolic blood pressures (BP) have a strong, continuous, graded, and positive association with Cardiovascular diseases outcomes or life time risk of Cardiovascular diseases, with no indication of a critical value. The aim of this trial was to evaluate whether Homoeopathic medicines were prescribed on mental symptoms could improve the quality of life(QoL) with allopathic treatment. Method: A total 100 Cases of Hypertension were randomly allocated in to two treatment groups, group A was treated with Homoeopathic medicines, prescribed on mental symptoms and group B was given Placebo with allopathic medicine. Data was analysed by using SPSS software and Excel. The statistical technique to be used was -‘Paired t-test’ and ‘Independent t-test’. Results: Treatment given toBoth group A and group B were helpful in reducing the B.P. but there is no significant difference between the effect of homoeopathic medicine and placebo on reducing of B.P. WHOQOL-BREF as assessment tool in both groups. A few homoeopathic remedies were found useful during the study. Conclusion :Homoeopathic medicines selected on the based of mental symptoms as adjunctive treatment were found helpful in reducing the blood pressure and improving Quality of Life (WHOQOL-BREF) in cases of essential Hypertension. Homoeopathic medicines and placebo as adjunctive treatment are equally effective in lowering blood pressure. Repertory of the Homoeopathic Materia Medica by Dr. J. T. Kent was observed very useful in finding the similar rubrics and remedies.

Keywords: Essential Hypertension, Homoeopathic medicine, Placebo, Randomized controlled trial, Systolic and diastolic blood pressure.
