ANGINA Meaning

Angina is a chest pain that occurs when the blood supply to the heart muscles is restricted. Plaques are fatty substance which build-up in the arteries causing it to become hard and narrow, thus restricting the blood supply to the heart and triggering the symptoms of angina. Angina attack is the pain triggered by physical activity or stress and typically only lasts for a few minutes. There are two main types of angina. Instable angina the attacks occur due to obvious trigger (such as exercise) and improve with medication and rest, while in unstable angina, the attacks are unpredictable, occurring with no obvious trigger and continuing despite resting. Angina is more common in older adults, affecting men more than women.1

In Sanskrit, angina is derived from two words – hrit meaning ‘heart’ and shool meaning ‘thorn’. So hritshula means ‘a thorn like pain in the heart’. In angina, Ama accumulates in Hirdayvahi channels and cause blockage. Due to the blockage of heart channels Vata dosha is aggravated. Vata symbolizes air or wind of external environment. It is dry, mobile, cool in nature and it causes pain in heart.2 In Ayurveda, Hritshula is also described to occur as a complication of other diseases.
