Ayurvedic Approach To Cardiovascular Problems

Cardiovascular Disease ( CVC)  is a general term used for a condition affecting the heart and blood vessels. CVC is the foremost cause of morbidity and mortality in our society. In 2019, an estimated 17.9 million people died from CVDs, accounting for 32% of all global deaths. Heart attacks and strokes were responsible for 85% of these deaths.

With rapid urbanisation and the rise of new exhausting lifestyles, there has been an epidemiological shift in the global scenario, with lifestyle diseases outranking infectious diseases. If you are looking for an Ayurvedic treatment in Dubai regarding cardiovascular issues, you are at the right place. This blog reviews the understanding of Cardiac Diseases ( Hridroga) from an Ayurvedic perspective.

Cardiovascular disease refers to heart or blood vessel problems, such as 

  • Narrowing of blood vessels 

  • Irregular heart rhythms 

  • Heart and blood vessel problems at birth 

  • Issues with heart valves.  

 

Ayurvedic Treatment for Cardiovascular Disease.

In Ayurveda, the heart is considered a vital organ that contains the spirit of all body tissues and thus aids in the maintenance and promotion of a healthy lifestyle.

According to Ayurveda, the human body is influenced by three doshas: Vata, Pitta, and Kapha, and the human heart is governed by three sub-doshas: Vyana Vata (blood flow and beat), Sadhaka Pitta, and Avalambaka Kapha. As a result, a healthy heart leads to a healthy mind.

Coronary heart disease is caused by a Kapha-inducing sedentary lifestyle combined with an excess of fatty foods, particularly trans fats, and inadequate consumption of fruits and vegetables. Our Ayurveda centre in Dubai aims to address the disease holistically at its root by striking at the very root of the disease.

 

Main causes 

The causes of heart disease differ vary depending on the types. Coronary artery disease and peripheral artery disease, for example, are caused by atherosclerosis (plaque buildup in your arteries). Arrhythmias can be caused by coronary artery disease, scarring of the heart muscle, genetic issues, or medications. Valve diseases can be caused by ageing, infections, or rheumatic disease.

 

Cardiovascular disease risk factors

You are likely to develop cardiovascular disease if you have risk factors including 

  • High Blood Pressure 

  • Type 2 Diabetes 

  • Family History of heart disease.

  • Excess weight or obesity 

  • Chronic inflammatory or autoimmune condition.

  • Tobacco use 

  • Use of Alcohol & recreational drugs


Symptoms of Cardiovascular disease 

The symptoms of cardiovascular disease can vary depending on the cause. Older adults and people born female may experience more subtle symptoms. They can, however, develop serious cardiovascular disease. Some of the symptoms of CVC according to Ayurveda.

Vata Signs of heart disease

  • Arrhythmia 

  • Palpitations 

Kapha Signs of heart disease

  • Cough

  • Heavy sensations and tightness in the chest.

Pitta Signs of heart disease

  • Angina

  • Yello colouration 

 

Symptoms of blockage vessels throughout the body 

  •  Pain or cramps in legs

  • Non-healing leg sores

  • Swelling in your legs 

  • Numbness in the face or a limb.

 

Treatment 

Depending on the pathology, Panchakarma, external therapies, internal medications, activities, food and lifestyle changes are among the treatment modalities.

  • Panchakarma -  Virechana & Basti

  • Externally, there are Abhyanga, Shiro Dhara, and Hrid.

  • Internally - Arjuna (Terminalia arjuna), Guggulu, and other herbs that regulate blood flow and strengthen the heart.

 

Activities

  • Asanas, Pranayamas and meditation

  • Changes in food and lifestyle that are specific to an individual's ‘Prakriti’, health condition, work environment and geographical conditions. 

 

Benefits of Ayurvedic Treatment for Heart Diseases

Even though Ayurveda is an ancient form of medicine, it has several advantages compared to conventional allopathic medicine. The following are some of the advantages of Ayurvedic treatments for heart health.

  • No Side Effects 

Antiplatelet drugs have been linked to diarrhoea and dizziness, anticoagulants can cause gangrene, ACE (angiotensin-converting enzyme) can cause high or irregular heart rate, antiarrhythmics can cause vision problems, and hypertension meds can induce erectile dysfunction in men. Ayurvedic therapies are safe and effective, according to studies, and their benefits increase with continued use.

  • Long-Lasting Results 

Ayurvedic therapies provide patients with long-term benefits that last for years.

  • Economical

The increased demand for heart disease medicines has resulted in a significant rise in their prices. The high cost of these medications is especially damaging in rural areas, where medicines account for up to 80% of all out-of-pocket spending. Ayurveda provides a cost-effective solution to the problem.

  • Improves overall health 

Ayurvedic heart health treatments combine therapies that work together to improve heart function. These comprehensive treatments improve overall health and decrease the likelihood of developing other health issues. Since Ayurveda promotes physical, mental, and emotional health, patients will not only live longer but also have a higher quality of life.

Depending on the severity of the condition, ayurvedic treatments for heart disease can be used alone or as adjuncts to allopathic treatments. Although Ayurveda can aid in the treatment of heart disease, you should always consult your doctor before making any changes to your daily routine. The experts from our Ayurvedic clinic in Dubai will be able to tailor a heart health plan to your specific requirements.
