Abstract

Hypertension, commonly known as high or rising blood pressure, is characterized by a consistently elevated blood arterial pressure. It is a significant medical condition called hypertension raises your risk of developing problems with your heart, brain, kidneys, and other organs. Curry leaves work well as a treatment for high blood pressure. Curry leaves are thought to have a potent therapeutic impact for the treatment of high blood pressure since they are low in salt and high in potassium. Therefore, it is of interest to reduce the level of blood pressure among adults in rural area with the help of curry leaves. According to the statistical analysis, the experimental group's post-test mean score for hypertension was 155 with a standard deviation of 13.892 while the control group's post-test mean score was 162 with a standard deviation of 17.20. The estimated unpaired value of t = 11.07 was deemed to be statistically significant at the p 0.05 level and the mean difference was 7. As a result, the null hypothesis was rejected and the research hypothesis was accepted. Giving Curry leaf powder to patients with hypertension as a consequence was an effective intervention.
