AYURVEDA PERSPECTIVE ON ATHEROSCLEROSIS

Atherosclerosis (athero=paste, sclerosis = hardening) is a chronic condition causing the vessel to harden and narrow. Arteries carry oxygen rich blood throughout the body, and when they become obstructed, it can lead to serious medical complications including a stroke, heart attack, and general lack of blood flow to organs (peripheral vascular insufficiency).

Pathogenesis

Arteries are lined with a thin layer of cells called the endothelium. Under some conditions, the cell lining of arteries becomes damaged. As your body attempts to repair this damage, scar tissue (fibrosis) develops. "Bad" cholesterol (LDL) may start to accumulate and form plaque on the vessel wall. The fibrosis leads to hardening and inelasticity of the arteries. Plaque formation narrows the blood vessel.

Risk Factors

Common Causes of Damage to Vessels Walls
  • General inflammation
  • High blood pressure
  • Blood vessel inflammation & infection (phlebitis).
  • Oxidative injury from free-radicals
  • High iron levels
Major risk factors include smoking, high blood pressure, and poor diet, especially consumption of trans-fats. Anything that causes buildup of ama can irritate the blood vessel.

Atherosclerosis & Dosha

Athersclerosis is a tridoshic disorder. It is most common in Kapha individuals during Vata time of life, and in those who smoke. Inflammation is Pitta while plaque formation is Kapha in nature. The narrowing and hardening of the vessel is a Vata disorder.

Natural Approach to Atherosclerosis

Reduce Inflammation

To prevent atherosclerosis, stop smoking. Alteratives & antioxidants can help reduce inflammation. Connective tissue tonics help to maintain elasticity of vessels.

Daily, gentle exercise will help prevent stress and high blood pressure that can also contribute to atherosclerosis. Atherosclerosis is associated with a high degree of bitterness - the residue of chronic inflammation.

Heat Deficiency

Atherosclerosis causes poor circulation, leading to low fire (gani) and cold signs. Consequently, dry conditions may develop.

Kapha Pacifying Diet

Remove foods that contain refined sugar and trans fats, such as doughnuts, cakes, and biscuits, as they increase plaque formation.

Bitter foods, as well as guggulu, can be utilized for their scraping effect (lekhna) as these clear toxic plaque accumulations in the circulatory channels. Scraping herbs also help balance cholesterol levels.

Dilate Blood Vessels

Aromatic herbs, such as cardamom and mint, help to dilate vessels and improve circulation.

Disclaimer: Conditions such as 'Atherosclerosis' that cause tissue changes could be serious and should be checked by a medical doctor.

Balance Your Body with Diet, Herbs, & Lifestyles Having These Biocharacteristics

Everything you eat has an effect on your body, which Ayurveda categorizes in a simple and easy way, using biocharacteristics (gunas). Biocharacteristics are qualities (like cold and hot) that describe the effect a food or herb has on your body. Cooling foods like cucumber, decrease metabolism. Heating foods like chili pepper, stimulate your body and increase metabolism. For 'Atherosclerosis', you should select foods with the following biocharacteristics. Individual results will vary, based on your body type and the root cause of your imbalance.

HOW TO ADDRESS ISSUES IN STAGE OF DISEASE #4

ATHEROSCLEROSIS IS IN STAGE OF DISEASE #4 - TISSUE DISEASE

If you have symptoms in this category it means your imbalances have overwhelmed your body's resistance causing a full-fledged disease. Once imbalance reaches this stage it is more likely to cause acute or chronic conditions. You might be tempted to focus your attention on fighting symptoms in this category, but dismiss earlier warning signs of imbalance - i.e. symptoms in the stage 1 category. It is ideal to find and address the root causes weakening your system and remove them first. This ensures you are not adding fuel to the fire of disease. Once the root causes are removed, you can work on addressing the disease head on along with strengthening your body. This typically yields a quicker recovery and prevents recurrence. Ayurveda's preventative approach suggests you pay careful attention to every stage of disease development.

AVOID DIETS, LIFESTYLES & HERBS THAT AGGRAVATE THESE EFFECTS

According to Ayurveda, one or more of the following doshas and biocharacteristics may aggravate 'Atherosclerosis'. If you have an excess of one of these doshas or biocharacteristics below, Ayurveda recommends reducing foods and lifestyle habits that aggravate them. Click on the biocharacteristic to learn what foods and lifestyle habits should be reduced.

Symptoms Tell A Story

The first step to healing is learning patterns from your symptoms. Symptoms are clues that reveal underlying imbalances. Symptoms show you where your body is weakened. Ultimately, all disease has a root in tissues too weak to defend itself. Ayurveda describes these patterns of weakness using doshas & biocharacteristics. If you notice a biocharacteristic or dosha appears next to many of your symptoms, it helps you establish a pattern that may be systemic.

HOW AYURVEDA WORKS

ARE YOU WONDERING HOW AYURVEDA CAN HELP YOU?

WHY IS AYURVEDA THE RIGHT SOLUTION?

Ayurveda strengthens the body while opposing disorders. It takes a holistic, systemic approach that looks at the whole body. Ayurveda shows how to interpret signs and symptoms of imbalance, and how to address them using diet, lifestyle adjustments, and herbs. It shows a person how to optimize their health on a continual basis. You can't take the doctor home with you, but you can take Ayurveda home with you. Ayurveda is the most advanced and easy to use home system for self healing.

HOW DOES AYURVEDA WORK?

Ayurveda starts by identifying your body type, which identifies certain tendencies in your body to get sick (as well as identifying your strengths). It uses body type to determine the likely root causes of your disorders. Next, Ayurveda analyzes the nature of your disorder. It fits all your signs and symptoms into a pattern, expressed as a combination of biocharaceristics (gunas). For example, you may have a heat disorder, a cold disorder, or an oily disorder, etc. This simple categorical approach shows you how to correct systemic imbalances and strengthen your body as a whole.

On Joyful Belly, we've created an extensive categorization of food so you can easily match food to your imbalanced biocharacteristics. By eating an optimal diet that balances your biocharacteristics, your whole body is strengthened and the conditions that created the disorder are removed. Once the root causes of the disease are removed, the disease lessens in strength or disappears altogether. Additional remedies - such as herbs and lifestyle practices - focused on the specific disorder, can greatly enhance your healing.

John's interest in Ayurveda and specialization in digestive tract pathology was inspired by a complex digestive disorder acquired from years of international travel, as well as public service work in South Asia. John's commitment to the detailed study of digestive disorders reflects his zeal to get down to the roots of the problem. His hope and belief in the capacity of each & every client to improve their quality of life is nothing short of a personal passion. John's creativity in the kitchen and delight in cooking for others comes from his family oriented upbringing.

John enjoys sharing Ayurveda within the context of his Catholic roots, and finds Ayurveda gives him an opportunity to participate in the healing mission of the Church. Jesus expressed God's love by feeding and healing the sick. That kindness is the fundamental ministry of Ayurveda as well.
