Ayurvedic Treatment for High Cholesterol – Causes, Symptoms, Herbs, Diet & Lifestyle

INTRODUCTION OF THE DISEASE

Cholesterol is a waxy, fat like substance found in the body. Cholesterol is needed by our body to prepare hormones, vitamin D and other substances that help in digesting the foods.

There are two types of lipoproteins in the body:

  1. Low Density Lipoprotein or LDL- Also known as bad cholesterol causes the buildup of cholesterol in the arteries.
  2. High Density Lipoprotein or HDL- Also known as good cholesterol carries the cholesterol from other parts of the body to the liver which removes it.

Accumulation of the cholesterol on the walls of the arteries cause the arteries to get narrow and harden. This is known as Atherosclerosis. Narrowing of the coronary arteries that bring blood to the heart can stop or slow down the flow of blood to the heart is known as coronary artery disease. This sometimes also causes chest pain known as Angina.

When excessive ama gets accumulated and begins to spread throughout the body, it gets mixed up with the dhatus and malas. Once amavisha gets mixed in with the meda dhatu or fat tissue, it blocks the medavaha srotas and this leads to the condition of high cholesterol. High cholesterol further leads to heart diseases, stroke and high blood pressure.

Since unbalanced kapha dosha is the root cause of high cholesterol, therefore ayurvedic treatment mainly aims at pacifying kapha dosha and enhance the fat metabolism, following kapha pacifying diet favouring foods with bitter, astringent and pungent tastes and at the same time avoiding sweet, sour and salty foods.
