A large percentage of Gambians are suffering with hypertension. This widely spread condition is also the cause for heart ailments, strokes and kidney problems.
The heart pumps the blood and the blood applies pressure on the walls of blood vessels. The pressure will be high when the heart compresses to push the blood through arteries. When the heart relaxes, the pressure will be low. When a person does strenuous work, or undergoes emotional outburst, blood pressure rises. Likewise it will decrease when he is sleeping or taking rest.
A person is said to be having high BP, when the Blood Pressure is always more than the normal blood pressure. People are advised to take proper medication for high BP. Pranic Healing an energy healing system which can effectively help a hypertensive patient to keep his condition stable and to have normal blood pressure.
Pranic Healing is an ancient science and art of healing using vital energy or 'Prana'. This Prana keeps the body alive and healthy; Prana circulates through out our body and forms an Aura around our Physical body. This Aura surrounding us has several energy centres called Chakras. Chakras are just like power stations that supply life energy to vital organs. When the power stations malfunction, the vital organs become sick or diseased because they do not have enough life energy to function properly!
In case of High Blood pressure the solar plexus and meng mein energy centre which is located backside of navel are malfunctioning. These energy centres are filled with used up energy. During a Pranic healing session a healer carefully removes the used up energy from affected energy centres and flicks them into a salt water solution. This is termed as cleansing procedure. Salt has a capacity to disintegrate the negative energy and water has a capacity to withhold the energy. Therefore when a healer uses salt solution he disintegrates the negative energy logged in the energy centre.
When the healer notices that the energy centres are clean, he latter projects the vital energy or Prana to energy centres to make it stronger and balanced, this is called as energising technique. Cleansing and Energising are two important techniques in Pranic healing.
Hypertension may be physically caused by malfunctioning of the kidneys or by other external factors. In most cases the cause or causes are not medically known; these are called essential hypertension. It can be controlled but is supposed to be 'medically incurable'. From the Pranic healing view point, essential hypertension is caused by the over activation of the meng mein chakra, which is usually, caused by the over activation of the solar plexus chakra. In other words, essential hypertension is predominantly emotional in origin.
Pranic Healing sessions can aid person to experience freedom from stress, fear and anxiety which are major factors for hypertension.
