What is Atherosclerosis Ayurvedic treatment


Atherosclerosis is a condition wherein arteries are clogged with fatty substances called plaques, or atheroma. The arteries thus become harden and narrow, limiting the oxygen supply and blood flow to vital organs. This increases the risk of blood clots that could potentially block the flow of blood to the heart or brain causing heart attacks and brain attack (strokes)..1

According to Ayurveda, in atherosclerosis there is an increased Vata in blood vessels causing its degeneration thus making it hard, thin, and rough. Deposits of lipids and calcium represent increase in Kapha (water & earth element) in the degenerated vessels resulting in irregular thickening of blood vessels.2
