Heart failure

Heart failure from the point of view of Ayurveda

The normal healthy heart is a strong, muscular pump a little larger than a fist. It pumps blood continuously through the circulatory system. Heart failure is a condition when the weakened heart can’t supply the cells with enough blood. Body depends on the heart’s pumping action to deliver oxygen- and nutrient-rich blood to the body’s cells. When the cells are nourished properly, the body can function normally. High blood pressure, diabetes, coronary artery disease, or a previous heart attack, are just some of the conditions that lead to chronic heart failure. According to Ayurveda, improper diet and stressful lifestyle lead to problems with arteries, resulting in obstruction in channels due to vitiated Vata dosha. In Ayurveda, the accumulation of fluid around the heart is considered a Kapha disorder, and heart failure can be considered as a tridoshaja vyadhi. An imbalance of tridoshas in the heart muscle results in the impairment of the cardiac function.

How Ayurvedic doctors treat Heart failure

Panchakarma therapy is a 5-step Ayurvedic procedure that is known to eliminate harmful toxins from the body thereby providing maximum health benefit to the patient. The techniques described in panchakarma – snehana (external oleation or massage), swedana (passive heat therapy) and basti (type of enema) along with hrudaya dhara (oil dripping therapy) are effective in treatment of heart failure.
 
Daily use of abhyanga rejuvenates the body of chronic heart failure. In herbal medicine, Arjuna and Punarnava are considered Ayurveda’s top herbs to restore heart function.
 
The suitability of the medicine for a particular patient is determined by an Ayurvedic doctor during the online consultation. Please do not take the medicine arbitrarily.
