Cardiac Blockage

Unhealthy diet, such as excessive intake of heavy oily foods, fatty meats and sugars, lifestyle habits like irregular eating habits, overeating, intake of the wrong foods, and a sedentary lifestyle causes the accumulation of toxins(ama) in the body. These toxins then deposit in the channels of the body, such as the coronary arteries, causing obstructions to proper circulation which results in various forms of heart disease.

Ayurvedic cure of Coronary Artery Blockage

Ayurvedic treatment consists of cleaning these channels of toxins and restoring digestion to prevent further accumulation of blockages in the body. This can be achieved via panchakarma. Medications that strengthen the heart, cardiovascular system, and mind are also administered. Diet and regimen changes are advised to support treatment and maintain future health.

The main concept of Ayurvedic treatment of cardiac blockage is three dimensional- 

  1. Strengthening of Cardiac Muscles
  2. Opening of the main passage or collaterals
  3. Lowering down the stress from the cardiovascular system

In the last many years, at eVaidyaJi Research Unit, we have worked on different concepts to develop this three-dimensional approach of treatment of coronary artery blockage with Ayurvedic medicines. 

Let's discuss these ones by one to all the points: 

Strengthening of cardiac muscles

There are certain herbs in Ayurveda that do wonders when it comes to strengthening cardiac muscles. Herbs like Arjuna, Viadarikanda, Amalvetasa are well-known for their impact on the cardiac muscles. When these herbs are processed well these herbs in the right quantity give immediate results in the treatment of the conditions like- coronary artery blockage. 

Opening of the Arterial Supplies

The main challenge in such cases is to resume the supply after removing the clogs from the arteries. The main focus remains on the opening of the main artery but side by side we keep on working on collateral supplies so that there won't be any further damage to the cardiac muscles. 

Lowering down the Stress from Heart

You cannot avoid stress and stress is the key ingredient of modern-day lives, we also understand this. Therefore at eVaidyaJi Wellness, we kept on working on the modules which will help to improve the stress endurance of a person. This helps in maintaining the normalcy of life and a person can lead a healthy life. 

The Coronary disease kit comprises all three actions, which will help you to get rid of the problems of cardiac blockage. 

Atherosclerosis is becoming a common problem these days and is of major concern. It is the build-up of cholesterol and fatty deposits (called plaques) inside the arteries. Modern lifestyle habits like junk food, no exercise lead to Atherosclerosis. When these deposits of cholesterol or fatty increase beyond the normal levels they can clog the arteries or damage the arteries, which limits or stops blood flow to the heart muscle.

The coronary arteries (blood vessels carrying blood to our heart) are also affected by Atherosclerosis. Coronary artery disease(CAD) is the narrowing or blockage of specifically these coronary arteries.

Lack of blood supply to the heart means it cannot get the required levels of oxygen and nutrients needed for it to work properly. This can cause chest pain or a heart attack. Most heart attacks happen when a blood clot suddenly cuts off the hearts' blood supply, causing permanent heart damage. But with Ayurveda you can overcome all these things easily. It is important to care your heart in a better way so that you can lead a normal life. 

Symptoms of Cardiac Blockage

The most common symptom of CAD is angina (chest pain)  and can also be described as chest discomfort, heaviness, tightness, aching, burning, numbness, fullness, or squeezing. It can be mistaken for indigestion or heartburn. The basic difference between heartburn and angina is that in heartburn there is no shortness of breath (but observed in angina). In angina sour burps and bloated stomach is not observed (but observed in heartburn).

Other symptoms of coronary artery disease include:

  • Shortness of breath
  • Heart palpitations
  • A faster-than-normal heartbeat
  • Dizziness
  • Nausea
  • Extreme weakness
  • Sweating

The most common factors that increase the chance of CAD are,

  • Smoking
  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • Diabetes or insulin resistance
  • Sedentary lifestyle
