Congestive Heart Failure

About Congestive Heart Failure (CHF)

Heart failure is also known as congestive heart failure it occurs when pumping power of heart gets affected. In this condition, heart muscles don't pump blood as they normally do. Heart has the four chambers, two atria in the upper half of heart and two ventricles in the lower half of heart. Ventricles pump blood to all the organs and atria receive the blood so that it can circulate back to body. So in the case of congestive heart failure, ventricles don't pump blood in sufficient volume to body.

Ayurvedic Outlook

According to Ayurveda congestive heart failure is known as hridya avrodh. Origin of the channel of rasa dhatu is considered to be from heart. Rasa dhatu is one of the seven tissues of body and formed after the digestion of food. Improper eating habits, mental stress and weakened digestive fire results in the production of toxins (ama). These toxins result in vitiation of rasa dhatu. These toxins (ama) accumulate in the heart and form the blockages in the channels, which results in the congestive heart failure.

Ayurvedic Perspective for Management of CHF

From Ayurvedic perspective for the management of CHF, it is important to clear toxins from channels and maintain the good digestion to restrict the further accumulation of toxins (ama) in the body. There are various herbs present in Ayurveda which are packed with cardioprotective properties and help to strengthen the heart muscles in a natural way.
