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.
