Arteriosclerosis

Ayurvedic Treatment of Arteriosclerosis

Arteriosclerosis is a condition of clogging of the arteries. From Ayurvedic perspective, all tridoshas can manifest in this case. Kapha and Pitta types are due to fat accumulations. Vata type is from the hardening of the arteries.

Ayurvedic treatment for arteriosclerosis is similar to the treatment of heart diseases and for hypertension. Hypertension usually follows arteriosclerosis.

Herbs

Guggul lowers high cholesterol in all mind-body constitutional types. It is especially useful for Kapha. It improves circulation, reduces pain, removes accumulations and promotes healing. Take 1 gm. in the morning and evening for three months.

Garlic is a good herb for high cholesterol in Kapha and Vata constitutions. Take it with honey.

Other useful herbs are: calamus, turmeric, elecampane, aloe vera gel with turmeric or safflower, katuka, myrrh, saffron, motherwort, and hawthorn berries. The main Chinese herbs are he shou wu (fo ti) and salvia.
