Ayurvedic Treatment for Blocked Coronary Arteries

Ayurvedic Treatment for Blocked Coronary Arteries

Blockage in coronary arteries is a a natural process of ageing. This natural process of coronary
artery blockage is however accelerated due to the following

• Smoking
• Stress
• Sugar (Diabetes)
• Blood Pressure
• Faulty Diet - (Too much saturated fats, trans fats in the food i.e. consumption of heavy, greasy food, fried items, deep fried potatoes/chips etc.)
• Alcohol not more than 100 ml / day

Usually the patients of Blocked Coronary arteries are recommended either Bypass surgery or Stent placement.
There are many cases who could not undergo bypass surgeries or stenting due to medical or financial reasons, are advised
dietary changes, lifestyle changes,natural heart supporting treatment.
I recommend the following ayurvedic treatment for coronary artery blockage and heart support.

This treatment of Packs should be done along with other modern medicine for about 3 months and from no. 2 to no. 8 for 6 months

The products like No. 3 and no. 4 and no. 6 should be taken for about a year to cleanse the system.

Nardiya Laxmi Vilas Ras - 5 gm

Now a days a lot of research has revealed that using Ghee can help improve HDL ( Protective cholesterol ) and help prevent heart attacks. Arjun Ghritam is a medicated Ghee made from processing the bark of Arjuna tree in Cow ghee.

Since the Coronary artery blockages or coronary artery disease is a serious health condition. So all who can undergo surgery or stenting
should follow the procedure. They can use the above treatment along with surgery, stenting or modern drugs
to provide support to the system.

Diet in Kidney failure and Herbal Remedies for Kidney Failure

Send Your Comments and Questions to

There is no specific single diet which is good for all kidney failure patients. There are however some guidelines which I am giving for all kidney failure, dialysis, high urea creatinine patients. Detailed advice for patients with severe kidney disease (less than 30% function, stages 4 and 5 CKD) is best from a renal dietitian.

Protein Intake in Renal Failure - The sources of protein are Animal protein - meat, fish, cheese, eggs, milk, and Vegetable protein - nuts, pulses (beans, lentils etc), tofu, corn. If on Haemodialysis, sometimes a little high protein diet is recommended. This is also recommended if the albumin protein level in the blood is low.

Protein breakdown leads to formation of urea and creatinine. So excessive protein intake must be avoided in Chronic Kidney Disease i.e. CKD. Protein intake depends upon your urea and creatinine levels as well as blood and urine protein levels. Kindly discuss with your renal dietician or doctor for protein intake per day, as per your test reports and body requirements.

Usually the daily intake should be less than 1 gram per kg of body weight. If you weigh 75 kg, then 50-70 gm proteins are ok per day but again the role of dietician or your doctor cant be ruled out who is doing the dialysis and follow up.


Usually we consume about 150 - 200mmol (9-12g of salt, or 3-5g of sodium) everyday. We actually need less than half of this. Only 10 % of sodium comes from fresh food but the rest 90 % is coming from salt or sodium bicarbonate in cooking / food processing or preserved food (Sodium benzoate is used as a preservative in many health foods). Much of the sodium we consume also comes from Table salt sprinkled on the food after cooking.

I recommend less than 2 gram of Sodium per day. i.e. about 3-6 grams of salt intake.This allows small amounts of salt to be used in cooking, but means limiting very salty foods, and not adding salt to food after it has been cooked. Less salt may be better still!

Lo Salt !! - These are not recommended because they may not contain sodium but they contain much potassium.

Potassium - Potassium is found particularly in leafy vegetables and most fruit and fruit juice, and in potatoes, especially if they are fried or baked.

In severe kidney failure, the potassium levels are usually high. So this may lead to cut down intake of leafy vegetables, fruit juices, potatoes and some health food supplements like Aloe vera juice or coconut fruit water.

But if you are in renal failure or high urea, creatinine levels and the potassium levels are ok, then this diet is ok. Coconut water and aloe vera juice are recommended and work well if the potassium levels are fine.

Avoid these if there is High Potassium Level

Chocolate, toffees, liquorice, black treacle. Marzipan, nuts, potato crisps,chips, Avoid salt substitutes like Lo Salt etc. Tomatoes, beetroot, plantain, mushrooms, sweet corn, avocadoes, aubergine, parsnip,spinach, Bananas, mango, grapes, apricots, rhubarb, fresh grapefruit,pineapple, Fruit and Vegetable Juices,Coffee – up to one cup per day, Beer, cider, lager, sherry, wine

Low Potassium Alternatives - These can be taken if the potassium is high - Tea, Fruit tea, Spirits, Apples, Pears, Boiled vegetables - Carrots, Turnip, Onion, Cabbage, cauliflower, lettuce, cucumber, celery. Snacks made from Wheat, Corn or rice (popcorn without salt are ok)

Boiled potatoes, noodles, rice and pasta are ok


It is very important to restrict salt intake if you want to restrict your fluid intake. If you are eating salt (sodium), you feel thirsty quiet often and you can not control the desire to drink more water or fluids. Salt leads to water retention in the body. Salt restriction helps a lot in controlling the urge to drink fluids.
There is definite benefit of drinking water in a healthy individual but too much is not recommended in kidney failure.

Water is present in all fluids/ drinks consumed per day. So restrict your fluid intake as per doctor's advice.You can yourself judge if you are retaining the water or not. So you can adjust accordingly.

You need not restrict fluid intake if you are not on dialysis. Again I would suggest you to ask the dietician or the doctor and write it down in your diary how much you actually need to consume.

Phospate and Calcium

This is usually a problem if the patient is in end stage renal disease when the kidney function is less than 25 % . Phosphate is found in milk and cheese. Only a few other foods contain a lot of phosphate like wholegrain cereals, baking powder, shellfish. Some convenience foods also contain phosphate.

High calcium and phophate causes itching problem. Usually there are drugs which help to lower down the levels but again the diet and the problem needs the concern of doctor and the dietician involved.

Diet alone is hardly helpful in bringing down phosphate levels, so the drugs like phosphate binders are usually given. These are taken with food, and work by keeping the phosphate in your food in the gut, preventing it being absorbed into the blood when the food is digested. It is important that these are taken at the right time just before food (or with it) as they won't work otherwise.

Herbs in Kidney Failure

Few Ayurvedic herbs are recommended in Kidney failure. These are

Mutrakrichantak Churna - Take 1 tablespoonful of this, boil in 400 ml of water. Keep it boiling untill the water remains 50 ml. strain it and consume once daily.

The Other Herbs which are used by Ayurveda Practitioners in India are

  1. Rencure Formula Capsules - 2 capsules twice daily
  2. Varunadadi Vati - 2 tablets twice daily
  3. Punarnava Mandur -2 tablets twice daily

Rheumatoid arthritis is an inflammatory disease that causes pain, swelling, stiffness, and loss of function in the joints.

Ama can be corelated with a sticky substance which resembles a kind of sticky, slimy gum, which is formed due to faulty digestion or low digestive fire which is unable to process the food properly leading to formation of endotoxins.
These toxins called "Ama' are taken away by imbalanced "Vata" i.e. Air element in the body and are spread all over the body particularly the joints.

There is inflammation in the joints, painful swellings, which hurt like sting of a scorpion. sometimes the disease is so severe that it affects the movement, stability of the joint and result in deformities.

Punarnava Mandur - A herbal remedy for swelling in the body

Punarnava Mandur

Punarnava Mandur is an excellent herbal remedy for swelling in the body due to any reason. There are various reasons of swelling in the body. Swelling, also referred to as anasarca or edema, is a medical condition characterized by an excessive build up of fluid within the body's tissues. This fluid build-up can cause a person to rapidly increase his or her weight in a short period of time, ranging from days to weeks. The most commonly affected areas of the body are the skin, organs, glands, breast, ankles, legs, and feet. Swelling may be generalized throughout the body or localized to a single area. There are two basic types of swelling a person may experience: pitting edema and nonpitting edema. Pitting edema is a type of swelling that leaves an indentation in the skin when the swollen area is pushed on for five seconds and then quickly removed. Non-pitting edema, on the other hand, does not leave a pit.

A certain amount of slight swelling is considered normal during warmer months. This is particularly true for people who walk or stand a lot throughout the day. In addition, a pregnant woman may experience a slight amount of swelling from the stress of carrying a child. In both cases, there is generally no cause for concern.

Prevention from Swine flu - Ayurvedic Treatment of Swine Flu

As Swine flu is finding its way into new places and involving more and more people, I thought of writing about how we can prevent swine flu from spreading further. I am writing this article while sitting at New Delhi domestic airport looking at few people who are doing their normal duties wearing the masks.

Stay at home if you have some symptoms

It is the responsibility of the person who is having symptoms like cough, cold, sore throat to think that he should contain himself rather than people who are not suffering should wear masks and roam around everywhere. The world looks weird with people wearing masks and doing their regular activities.

Do Not Panic

The key to stop further spread of flu is "DO NOT PANIC AT ALL" Swine flu can be contained and prevented easily.

Contact Your Doctor

You should contact your doctor direct rather than going yourself for the tests and putting the burden on authorities. You should do it especially if -

  • You have a serious underlying illness
  • You are pregnant
  • You have a sick child under one year old
  • Your condition suddenly gets much worse
  • Your condition is still getting worse after seven days (five for a child)
  • You have regular fever which is not getting down with conventional treatment

Antiviral Drugs

Swine flu is being treated with antiviral drugs such as Tamiflu and Relenza. Antiviral drugs work by preventing the flu virus from reproducing - to be effective you need to take them within 48 hours of the symptoms beginning. This can reduce the risk of complications and possibly shorten the illness by a day.

If your GP confirms you have swine flu, you will be told from where you can get these drugs.

Herbal Remedies and other traditional Remedies

There are many tall claims by traditional practitioners that the Swine flu is curable and we can stop it. There are many people who may be advertising on their websites or everywhere else about their herbal formulations which are useful in treating Swine flu.

I believe there are many herbs which can be very useful in preventing Swine flu. I do not have any experience in treating the positive swine flu case yet. I however think that in Ayurveda, the Vata Shleshmik Jwara has the same symptomatology and the same herbs and other traditional regimes described will be useful in treating the swine flu. I am writing this article for preventing the Swine flu so that we do not have to face bigger emergency in future.

The following Herbs can be used for Swine Flu

Herbal Remedies, Ayurvedic Treatment, Herbal Supplements, Planet Ayurveda Products, Swine flu
  1. Tulsi Capsules - Tulsi is a herb used in Ayurveda for various sore throat, cough, cold, viral infections. It is very effective in treating almost all of the viral fevers and other upper respiartory tract viral infections including influenza.
  2. Dosage - 3 to 4 capsules thrice daily for 3 months can be used for prevention of Swine flu.

  3. Curcumin - Curcumin is another Ayurvedic herbal remedy for Prevention of Swine flu and treating of allied sypmtoms. 2-3 capsules thrice daily are recommended for 3 months.
  4. Amla and Bramhi Chawyanprash - Amla and Bramhi Chawyanprash are described as best anti-ageing, anti-oxidants herbs in Ayurveda. These improve the body's immunity to fight infections and other diseases if used regularly for about 2-3 months. I found the results much better than the regular vitamin pills.

Swine Flu and Ayurveda-, What is Swine Flu

Seasonal Flu (regular flu) infects millions of people every year. It's fair to say it's a common ailment, just like a cold. Regular flu also kills thousands of people each year...if one does not handle it in time... The regular flu can get complicated and attract more infections.

Study of such outbreaks of diseases is covered under Janapadodhvansa topic in ancient texts such as Charaka. Janapadodhvansa means destruction of population. Such diseases can catch anybody irrespective of his or her Dosha constitution, however, persons with good immunity are less affected by the disease with less severe symptoms. This is also known as epidemic.

Symptom complex of swine flu seems to be similar to that of kapha-vata jvara. Therefore, herbs such as guduchi, shunthi (ginger), kantakari can be good for this condition. All these herbs are very useful in Jvara (fever).
Further treatment includes use of Holy Basil leaves,(Tulsi) Turmeric capsules, Tribhuvan kirti ras, Kaisore guggul, Kachnaar guggul.
The treatment prescribed above does not mean that you should not go for tests and not go for check up at nearest hospital and get tests done for H1N1. This treatment is just an adjuvant treatment along with the regular Tamiflu treatment a

All these are very useful in all kinds of flu, to ease the symptoms.

VIRUS is nothing but ----- It's a tiny packet of only eight genes wrapped in a cloak of proteins, much smaller than a bacterium. Unlike bacteria, a virus is only half alive. It can't
eat or reproduce on its own, but must take over the genetic machinery of a
living cell. Most viruses are harmless; some are useful, but others, such as the
flu virus, can be deadly.
What makes this swine flu virus special is it’s novel combination of bird, pig and human viral genes never before found in the U.S. or elsewhere, so people have no immunity to it. It's a
descendant of the H1N1 virus that killed tens of millions of people worldwide in
the pandemic of 1918-1919, mixed in with recent strains of swine and bird flu
viruses. The 1918 virus originated in birds and then jumped to humans. This
year's virus apparently jumped from a pig to a 5-year-old boy in Veracruz ,
Mexico , who passed it on to other humans.

H1N1 stands for-- It's the initials of two sugar proteins (their scientific names are
hemagglutinin and neuramidinase) that sit on the surface of the virus and do its
dirty work.

The virus can be transmitted through the air - by a cough or a sneeze - or by
a handshake or by touching an infected surface, such as a doorknob. The virus
can live for up to two hours outside a cell. It can't be passed by eating pork.

There are no particular symptoms that distinguish swine flu from other types of flu. Symtoms like diarrhea and vomiting are also associated with swine flu. Those symptoms can also be caused by many other conditions, and that means that you and your doctor can't know, just based on your symptoms, The basic symptoms for swine flu are similar to the seasonal flu which may include:

* Fever of more than 100
* Coughing
* Runny nose and/or sore throat
* Joint aches
* Severe headache
* Vomiting and/or diarrhea
* Lethargy
* Lack of appetite

Diagnosis is the identification, by process of elimination, of the nature of anything. Diagnosis is used in many disciplines: medicine, science. Blood test is done to identify swine flu from normal flu.

As a general measure, following should help to build up one's immunity: Observing good diet according to your Agni, avoiding bad food combinations as advised by ayurveda, practicing ayurvedic dinacharya (daily routine), and ritucharya (routine according to season). Judicious use of herbs according to season and constitution would be a good idea.
