Hi doctor,

My mother is 73 years old. She suffers from a heart problem. She is having three blocks in her arteries. We have been advised to go for the stent. The blockage is 90 % in one artery, 80 % in the second and the third is with 70 % block. Now we do not like to go for stents. We are looking for medicines to get this cured.

We consulted an Ayurvedic doctor. He recommended some Ayurvedic medicine and he assured us that the medicine will give a solution. He asked her to follow some lifestyle changes along with it. She has no other medical issues like diabetes, thyroid, or BP. I have attached her prescription. Please explain the effectiveness of those medicines in reducing blocks.



Welcome to

I went through your query and the attached prescription (attachment removed to protect patient identity).

It is an excellent prescription. I am sure that she will get some improvement with it. But, do remember that the effect of medication vary from person to person. Take these medicines for two months and go for a re-test. Even if there is a slight improvement in her condition then avoid surgery. If not go for surgery. So in short, wait for two months for things to improve. Apart from the medications, ask her to have a low fat diet and take one bowl of boiled vegetables daily. Fruits are also recommended. She should have four to five glasses of warm water daily. It is very good for the heart. Deep breathing of10 rounds twice daily is very good for her.

Pranayama and yoga are recommended too, make sure she learns them from a qualified person.
