High blood pressure, termed "hypertension" is a condition that afflicts almost one billion people worldwide and is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality. It has been called the "silent killer" for this reason. The majority of blood pressure readings are close to the mean value with fewer reading towards the limit of the range. As a result it is not possible to distinguish two separate groups of people as "hypertensive" and "normotensive". Therefore the threshold that defines hypertension is rather arbitrary. It would seem more appropriate to state that hypertension is a sustained level of BP above which treatment is more beneficial than harmful. In Ayurvedic classics no disease has been found which exactly simulates with essential hypertension. Previous researchers made their effort to simulate hypertension with the disease like Siragata Vata, Raktagata, and Avrita vataroga etc. The prime object of the present study was to evaluate the efficacy of 'Chandramaradi Yoga' in the patients of Essential Hypertension. The results of treatment were assessed as excellent, good, fair & poor at the end of 28 days of drug therapy.
