THE AYURVEDIC WAY
Cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) are a group of disorders of the heart and blood vessels.
Hypertension, also known as high or raised blood pressure, is a condition in which the blood vessels have persistently raised pressure. Blood is carried from the heart to all parts of the body in the vessels. Each time the heart beats, it pumps blood into the vessels. Blood pressure is created by the force of blood pushing against the walls of blood vessels (arteries) as it is pumped by the heart. The higher the pressure, the harder the heart has to pump.
According to Ayurveda, high blood pressure involves all the doshas, the heart, and the blood vessels. We can see signs and symptoms of derangement of vata dosha mainly that of 'Vyana vayu' in high blood pressure. Pitta vitiation is also seen often and should be treated. People with Pitta and Vata predominant constitution and Pitta and Vata imbalance, are more prone to hypertension than any other. Unprocessed anger, frustration, irritability, anxiety and fear lead to maladaptation of the endocrine system, which then leads to conditions like hypertension.
Palpitations are defined as rapid pulsations or abnormally rapid or irregular beating of the heart. They are often described as the perception of a skipped beat, rapid fluttering in the chest, pounding sensation in the chest or neck, or a flip-flopping in the chest. Palpitations are common, nonspecific and can be a symptom or a diagnosis. While the cause of palpitations is usually beginning.

Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) usually involves a persistent feeling of anxiety or dread, which can interfere with daily life. It is not the same as occasionally worrying about things or experiencing anxiety due to stressful life events.Book An Appointment
Hypotension is the term for blood pressure that is too low. The condition is benign as long as none of the symptoms showing a lack of oxygen are present. Hypotension is called Nyuna Raktachaapa in Ayurveda. According to Ayurveda, low blood pressure occurs due to the destruction of Vata and the weakness of Agni.Book An Appointment
