Ayurveda for Heart Health: Prevention and Treatment

Cardiovascular diseases, including heart attacks and strokes, are now among the top causes of death worldwide. Unhealthy lifestyles, such as high cholesterol consumption, stress, anxiety, and smoking, are some of the common causes of heart disease.

The Cardiovascular System and Ayurvedic Approach

The cardiovascular system plays a crucial role in delivering essential nutrients, oxygen, and prana to the entire body, affecting the quality of bodily tissues, organs, and mental state. Ayurveda offers a comprehensive and scientific treatment system for heart problems, recognizing that diseases and symptoms indicate general disorders in the body.

The Role of Doshas

According to Ayurveda, an imbalance of vital energies, known as doshas, can affect all biological processes and cause disturbances. Heart disease is often associated with abnormalities in Pita energy. An Ayurvedic doctor can help by prescribing herbal preparations, a healthy diet, yoga, meditation, and other practices.

Ayurvedic Advice for Heart Health

To prevent heart disease and maintain heart health, Ayurveda recommends:

  • Quitting smoking
  • Eating a balanced diet
  • Exercising regularly
  • Maintaining a healthy weight
  • Reducing alcohol intake
  • Practicing meditation and yoga
  • Emotions that Affect the Heart

The heart is an "emotional" organ that can be strongly influenced by the emotions that create relationships with others. Heart disease can reflect personal problems, and Ayurveda recognizes the role of emotions in heart health.
