Nowadays, hypertension is considered as a global public health issue and in recent decades, it has shown a growing trend due to changes in lifestyle.

Therefore, addressing this disease from the viewpoint might provide a better management from the perspective of unani traditional regime cupping therapy of this “silent killer”.
