CAN AYURVEDA CURE HEART DISEASE

Heart is that organ which works non-stop for us without taking any rest. When we are on rest even then it is working. Modern science is utmost known to have a cure for almost every kind of heart disease but still there are few issues which it is not able to solve. There are different types of heart diseases few of them are listed below.

  • Congenital heart disease
  • Arrhythmia
  • Coronary artery disease
  • Dilated cardio-myopathy
  • Myocardial infarction
  • Heart failure
  • Hypertrophic cardio-myopathy
  • Mitral regurgitation

Allopathic approach towards various heart diseases is different & they generally are looking for controlling the disease with chemicals which have long term side effects.

We at Advance Ayurveda have the most comprehensive scientific approach to heart health available today, both in terms of identifying reasons and in providing a wide range of time-tested treatment options.

As we all know heart disease has many components. Its primary feature is physical deterioration of the cardiovascular vessel walls due to low blood circulation. This also includes clogging of the blood vessels with cholesterol or plaque (atherosclerosis), damaged areas due to increased pressure, and loss of vessel wall thickness.

No need to worry about all these diseases. Ayurveda cures the majority of cardiovascular diseases, and is often reversible, by natural means.

The Ayurvedic approach to cure any heart disease is to bring about foundational balance (tridosha synchronization) that give rise to cardiovascular disease. Ayurveda also understands arterial plague to be toxic matter that builds up because the physiology is not able to get rid of it efficiently. The multi-modality treatment program at Advance Ayurveda helps to remove toxins and blockages, strengthen digestive system, improve metabolism and restore the body’s natural abilities to heal & detox.  You’ll go home with individualized Treatment program and recommendations which will help in improvement in heart health.

Through its unique assessment of imbalances, at the basis of medical condition and its wide range of time-tested recommendations, Ayurveda offers a comprehensive approach to heart health.

Causes and Treatments              

This deterioration of structure can be of three main types:

  1. Blocking/Clogging of vessels with cholesterol and plaque (atherosclerosis).
  2. Heart Muscle Damage due to less blood supply to that area.
  3. Loss of vessel wall/heart chamber wall thickness.

The physical deterioration of cardiovascular vessels will create issues like chest pain, weakness, and shortness of breath, palpitations, coughing reflex and faintness. Patients with Heart disease also have high risk of serious, life threatening disorders mainly from the tissue damage or due to poor oxygen supply. The best part of cardiovascular disease is that it is due to unhealthy lifestyle decisions and is therefore preventable and sometimes reversible, by Ayurvedic treatment.

According to Modern medicine Heart disease is due to wide variety of “risk factors”.

In addition to hereditary factors the main risk factors for cardiovascular disease are:

  • Overweight and inactivity
  • Excess stress and over-activation of the “fight or flight” response
  • Overeating
  • Sugar intolerance and diabetes
  • Too much saturated and trans fats in the diet
  • High cholesterol
  • High blood pressure
  • Cigarette smoking

Virtually all of these factors are determined by lifestyle issues of diet, exercise, substance abuse, and the amount of health promoting regimens in daily life. It is essential to signify the importance of lifestyle and prevention for cardiovascular disease and heart health.

The Ayurvedic approach to removing the dosha imbalances differs markedly from the standard modern medicine approach of matching specific drugs to symptoms. Modern medicine/drugs often just eliminate or masks symptoms but do not really heal or cure you. Rather, they leave the root imbalances in place and often chemicals have their own side effects which further deteriorate the body’s natural healing response. For example, cholesterol reducing, blood pressure, and anti-anxiety medicines provide only temporary improvement, & they have a lot of side effects on liver, kidney & nerves. Moreover, the risk factor or symptoms promptly returns when the medications are discontinued.

The Program at Advance Ayurveda for Heart Disease using the multi-modality & dosha balancing approach of Ayurveda helps to improve digestion, eliminate the impurities, and reduce blockages of heart & improves circulation of blood to the heart muscles.

Ayurvedic treatment tells about usage of specific herbs for heart health. These are Arjuna, Pushkarmool, daru-haridra , dhamasa & many more. Next topic we will be discussing the effects of herbs for heart & their Research.

These all issues can be solved with ayurveda and natural treatment. Trust on your Ayurvedic Doctor pay a key role in treatment.

HOW TO KEEP A HEALTHY HEART!!!

Taking care of your heart

Following a simple lifestyle and paying little attention to diet can help you maintain healthy condition of your heart.

  1. According to Ayurveda, Ama is the main cause for heart disease. Ama is the toxic material that is produced by undigested food. Therefore, one must make sure that one eats only that amount of specific food(According to one’s Prakriti) and type of foods which can digest properly.
  2. Avoid over-eating and eating frequently. Chew your food properly.
  3. Milk products, fried foods, cold foods and acidic foods should be taken in small quantities. White flour products and foods that contain chemical preservatives and additives should be avoided.
  4. Animal products, especially red meat, are not good as they take a long time to be digested, and create a lot of toxins in the stomach.
  5. Seasonal fruits and fresh vegetables (steamed or cooked), wholemeal bread or chapatti, salad, sprouts, vegetable soup, buttermilk, cottage cheese (paneer), a little quantity of fresh milk and ghee (clarified butter) make up an ideal list of food items to choose from.
  6. Anything sweet should be taken in moderation. Honey and jaggery are healthier than purified sugar.
  7. Amla (Indian gooseberry) is very beneficial for the heart. It can be taken fresh, preserved or in powder form.
  8. Stress is the major culprit behind these diseases. Practice yoga and pranayama (breathing exercises) regularly to reduce stress levels. Also, meditation has been scientifically proven to prevent as well as cure heart diseases.
  9. A gentle head massage with or without oil several times a week is very beneficial. A full-body self-massage with oil once a week is also good.
  10. Too much tea, coffee, alcohol and smoking is not good for the heart and should be given up. They weaken the liver and digestive power, and so form ama.
  11. Drinking water kept overnight in a copper pot strengthens the heart.
  12. A herb that has been scientifically proven to prevent and cure heart diseases is Arjuna (Terminalia arjuna). It can be taken in powder form or the bark of the tree can be boiled to make a tea.
  13. Rudraksha (a fruit) has a beneficial effect on the heart. These seeds can be strung together and worn in the form of a necklace, or the seeds may be soaked in water overnight and the water should be taken early in morning.
  14. Obesity, another reason for heart disorders, must be controlled by physical exercise and diet management. One should aim for a healthy weight.
  15. Diabetes is one of the culprit behind heart diseases. So it needs to be managed with diet and medicine.
