    Hypertension, as one of the most common and prevalent chronic diseases globally and a type of cardiovascular disease (CVD), is the leading cause of death worldwide. It is estimated that millions of people lose their lives each year due to cardiovascular diseases, and this problem is widespread in many countries, regardless of age, gender, and economic background. Hypertension is primarily characterized by a sustained increase in arterial blood pressure during a state of rest (BP: 140/90 mmHg or 18.6/12 kPa or higher). The severity of its clinical manifestations can vary greatly, with about half of the patients in the early stages exhibiting no noticeable symptoms and often diagnosed incidentally during routine check-ups. If there are significant fluctuations in blood pressure, there can be more symptoms, with dizziness being one of the main symptoms. Other symptoms may include headache, feeling of fullness in the head, dizziness, tinnitus, palpitations, insomnia with vivid dreams, and forgetfulness. As the condition progresses, with a significant and sustained increase in blood pressure, it can lead to organic damage and functional impairment in the heart, brain, kidneys, fundus, and other organs, accompanied by corresponding symptoms. The most challenging aspect for such patients is the long-term use of antihypertensive drugs without complete improvement in symptoms, and discontinuing the medication is not advisable.

    Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) differs in its approach, as it believes that simply reducing blood pressure with medication does not fundamentally solve the problems for patients with cardiovascular diseases. TCM considers hypertension to be a response, manifestation, and indicator of changes in blood pressure in the human body. The true cause of elevated blood pressure is closely related to the liver and kidneys. The underlying pathogenesis involves insufficient kidney yin and liver qi blocking the blood vessels, resulting in poor blood flow. Additionally, most hypertensive patients have thickened blood, which further impedes smooth blood circulation. As the human body functions as a coordinated mechanism, elevated blood pressure is a compensatory response to ensure blood flow to the heart and head. Therefore, the key to helping patients lies in changing the body's environment, promoting blood circulation, removing blood stasis, and enhancing liver and kidney functions, often through using Shanzhuyu, Sangye, Gegen and other herbals formulations.* This natural approach aims to guide the body to naturally lower blood pressure, ultimately eliminating the discomfort and symptoms caused by hypertension from the root cause.
