Coronary Artery Disease (CAD).
“Over-consumption of heavy and fatty meals, worries, sedentary habits, & over-sleep invite cardiac diseases”.
The hardened and narrowed arteries lead to coronary artery diseases. Such hardening occurs due to the build-up of cholesterol (plaque) on their inner artery walls (atherosclerosis). In Ayurveda, atherosclerosis can be compared with Dhamanipratichaya. The excessive consumption of sweets/greasy foods & lack of physical activities causes morbid accumulation of the fats & cholesterol (Kapha/Medas) in the plasma (Rasa Dhatu). This morbid accumulation causes thickening, tortuosity, stiffness, & narrowing of arteries. This event finally culminates in more serious encapsulation (Margavarana). Since circulatory channels (Rasa and Rakta Dhatu) are ubiquitously distributed in the body, an event of encapsulation can happen in all parts of the body.
Natural Solution for CAD
Natural therapy of 5000 years old medical science of Ayurveda aims at targeting the root cause (atherosclerosis) leading to coronary artery diseases. The natural therapy focuses on Yoga, Pranayama, diet, & lifestyle changes along with powerful authentic herbs for heart health. These herbs possess potent thrombolytic, anti-anginal and cardio-protective ingredients. Additionally, these herbs also increase the digestive fire to burn the excess of fat (both accumulated on artery walls & circulating in arteries).
