The tribal people of Sikkim prescribe the decoction of bark of Saptaparna for the symptomatic relief in Hypertension and other Cardiac disease. Hypertension is one of the racial health problems in present era. No system of the medicine has succeeded to give complete relief in Hypertension. Based upon the tribal claim, the present clinical study was carried out on 30 patients of Essential Hypertension (EHT) in the O.P.D. of I.P.G.T. & R.A, Jamnagar. They were equally divided in two groups. In group-1 decoction of bark of Alstonia scholaris (L.) R. Br. was administered to 15 patients of essential hypertension in a dose of 15gm. twice daily for 21 days; whereas in group-2, 15 patients were administered with 250mg of Sarpagandha (Rauwolfia serpentina) Ghanavati twice daily. The result shows Saptaparna is relieving elevated Diastolic Blood Pressure (DBP) & somatic symptoms, where as Sarpagandha is more beneficial in reducing elevated Systolic Blood Pressure (SBP) & psychological symptoms.
