Treatment of Peripheral Artery Disease in Ayurveda


Peripheral artery disease, commonly known as PAD, is a form of peripheral vascular disease characterized by narrowed blood vessels, rendering it unable to carry and deliver blood to the outer parts of the body on demand such as the arms and legs.

This common circulatory problem indicates a probable build-up of fatty deposits in the arteries which fosters gradually and can be identified as atherosclerosis which results in the former.


This reduced blood flow to the arms and legs can give rise to cramps with which one may find it difficult to even walk but disappears when rested for 5 minutes. This cramp may be localized on the clogged artery. Cramps may arise on either of the hips or both, calf or thigh muscles upon exertion such as walking, climbing stairs etc. Unhealable sores on the feet, legs or toes or unidentified colour change appearance. Numbness, coldness or weakness on the affected organ. Altered pulse and long-winded growth of toenails.


First of all, if these symptoms have been observed, let's not shun it as another facet of aging! Keep in mind if you've crossed the age of 65 and have a recorded history of diabetes or if you have had the habit of smoking. Another potential threat for PAD can be traced to obesity, high blood pressure or a high cholesterol, heart disease or even stroke. PAD also finds its root in hereditary factors.


Ayurveda weighs the constitution of each individual with its unique dosic constitution of which vata pitta and kapha plays its components, hence disregarding a generalised treatment procedure, this 'mother of healing' rightly regarded as such, uproots the disease as a whole in lieu of the superficial symptoms!


Ayurveda sorts PAD as 'uttana vatarakta'.vatarakta is a condition which affects both vata dosha and rakta. This disorder comes into play when the accumulation of pitta and vata dosha hinders the blood channels/passages inciting the deterred circulation of vata by which vatarakta proves functional.
