Herbal Remedies for Heart Care
By Dr. Vikram Chauhan - MD (Ayurveda)
Heart is a vital organ in our body. There are many natural ways to keep our heart healthy and strong. The herbs play an important role to give strength to heart muscle. There are many herbal remedies for heart care. I regularly come across many heart patients at my clinic. The people are suffering from heart problems as they do not ever try to think about alternative remedies for heart care. There are many natural ways to keep our blood pressure and cholesterol under control rather than chemical based synthetic drugs.
There are herbs like Arjuna, Hawthorn, Grape Seed, Pomegranate Seed and many other herbs which give strength to heart and help in cleansing of the arteries. The blockage in the coronary artery can be cleared with the help of such natural remedies and products.
I am a firm believer of Ayurveda and natural remedies. In my clinical practice, I regularly come across many heart patients, who are suffering because they never tried herbal remedies for heart problems and neither have they had an open or favorable attitude towards herbal remedies. Although I can legally practice modern medicine, but still I prefer natural products over chemically made synthetic drugs.
