Abstract

INTRODUCTION: The research work aims at evaluating the immediate effects of ‘Direct mud application to spine in primary hypertensive patients by monitoring parameters such as blood pressure and heart rate variability (HRV). The previously available literature sources, reported the benefits of mud applications, for cardiovascular disorders and also for various other disorders. The current study is intended towards monitoring the immediate effects, by direct application of mud to the spine in primary hypertensive patients, by determining the cardiovascular and autonomic parameters of the study participants. AIM OF THE STUDY: The aim of the study is to evaluate the immediate effect of direct mud application to spine in primary hypertensive patients. OBJECTIVES: 1. To understand the effect of direct mud application to spine on cardiovascular function such as blood pressure and heart rate variability in primary hypertensive patients 2. To study the effect of direct mud application to spine on autonomic functions such as heart rate variability changes in primary hypertensive patients. STUDY DESIGN: The current research work employed Cross over pre-post intervention study. METHOD: 30 primary hypertensive patients with an age group of 35-50 participated in the study. The cardiovascular parameters such as blood pressure and short term HRV were assessed to the participants as pre and post interventions for two days, Day 1 (intervention-Rest) and Day 2 (intervention-Mud application to spine). The collected data were subjected to data analysis and interpretation, for determining the effectiveness and immediate effects of the direct mud application to the spine among the study participants. RESULT: The study showed parasympathetic significance in both rest and direct mud application to the spine, hence there are no significant differences among rest and direct mud application to the spine. There is a significant difference in diastolic pressure when mud is applied to the spine, hence mud application to the spine would be a better choice and adjuvant therapy for primary hypertension. CONCLUSION: The incorporation of Naturopathy Mediated Therapy which involve direct mud application to the spine is improving the cardiovascular and autonomic functioning, which was exhibited from the observed cardiovascular parameters and HRV Ranges.
