Keep Your Heart Healthy With Ayurveda

Keep Your Heart Healthy With Ayurveda


The heart beats about 2.5 billion times over the average lifetime, pushing millions of gallons of blood to every body part. This steady flow carries oxygen, fuel, hormone  s, other compounds, and essential cells. It also whisks away the waste products of metabolism. When the heart stops, essential functions fail, some almost instantly. Heart disease describes a range of conditions that affect your heart. Diseases under the heart disease umbrella include coronary artery disease, arrhythmias, congenital heart defects, etc.


How Ayurveda Sees the Heart -

The heart includes the 3 doshas in Ayurveda: Vata, Pitta, and Kapha.


  1. Vata administers the heart's beating and starts the electric impulse to get the heart through the sinoatrial node and the blood circulation.
  2. Pitta is answerable for blood purification and is liable for the digestion of emotions in the heart.
  3. Kapha is answerable for the heart's structure, blood, and strength.


In Ayurveda, prana is the imperative life force energy that enters the body through our healthy choices of food varieties. The energy of Pitta processes our food and sensory experiences, vitality, inner sap, passion, and immunity or OJAS. These ojas live in the heart, and the Heart circles ojas to the rest of the body to support the entire body and brain. Safeguarding the physical and emotional health of the heart is essential.


Ayurveda’s Take On Heart Health

Improper diet and life style aggravates the Tridoshas with the formation of Aam. Heart vessels become narrow due to Kapha and Aam which settles in the vessels and form cholesterol. Vata vitiation reduces the elasticity of the vessel. Aam get stored inside and around the coronary arteries and heart in the form of plaques. There is pressure on the heart to pump blood through these narrow vessels. This development in the heart and the vessels cause diminished blood flow. It will lead to Heart Disease.


Congenital heart defects can be present due to improper diet and lifestyle of pregnant woman. Mother’s doshas get aggravated. It affects growth of foetus. If heart development doesn’t occur properly in foetus. He/ she will develop congenital heart disease.

  • Deep fried, spicy, fatty, salty, sour, pungent food. 
  • Avoid wheat, red meat, pickles and excess intake of yogurt, tomato, fermented food and alcohol. 
  • Also avoid processed deli meats, as they are sodium bombs (mostly they are preserved using high sodium).
