What Is Atherosclerosis And Ayurvedic Treatment For Atherosclerosis?

Atherosclerosis refers to a disease in which there is a narrowing of the arteries caused by a buildup of the plaque. Arteries refer to the blood vessels that carry oxygen and nutrients from the heart to the rest of the body.

As one gets older, fats, cholesterol, and calcium can collect in the arteries to form plaque. The buildup of plaque makes it difficult for the blood to flow through the arteries. This buildup may occur in any artery in the body, including the heart, legs, and kidneys.

This can lead to a shortage of blood and oxygen in various tissues of the body. Pieces of the plaque may also break off, causing a blood clot. If left untreated, atherosclerosis can lead to several diseases including heart attack, stroke, and even heart failure.

Additionally, you can take Ayurvedic medicine for atherosclerosis as it is natural and does not cause any side effects.

Note - At Arogyadham, you can take Ayurvedic treatment for atherosclerosis from qualified doctors.

You might not have symptoms until the artery is nearly closed or until one has a heart attack or stroke. Signs and symptoms may also depend on which artery is narrowed or blocked.

A healthy diet includes fruits, vegetables, whole grains, meats, and poultry. It also reduces the consumption of sodium, saturated and trans fats, refined carbohydrates, and alcohol.

The following food groups and items form the basis of a healthy diet:

Fruits: Fresh or frozen fruits. Avoid fruits canned in heavy sugar-based syrup and frozen fruits with added sugar and preservatives.

Grains: Whole grains are a very crucial part of a healthy diet. Some of the good choices are:

  • Whole-grain bread and wraps
  • High-fiber cereals
  • Whole-grain pasta
  • Oatmeal
  • Brown rice
  • Barley
  • Quinoa
  • Bulgur wheat or farro
