Background: Hypertension has shown a significant increase in its prevalence not only in urban but also in rural population in India. Out of all hypertensive cases 85%-95% account for ‘Essential hypertension’, which is mostly attributed to genetic, psychological and environmental factors. Thus, there is need for a holistic approach for its treatment. Homoeopathy with its holistic concept along with life style modifications can prove to be a better option. This observational study as a part of thesis during post graduation was taken up to examine the usefulness of homoeopathic medicines with life style modifications in management of essential hypertension.
