Podcast: Ayurvedic View on Heart Disease with Dr. Sujatha Kekada

Dr. Sujatha Kekada talks about the Ayurvedic view on heart disease. The heart is considered the most vital organ in Ayurveda. It’s the seat of important marma points, the three doshas, the plasma channel, the respiratory channel, the ten great vessels of the body, our mind and our prime energy reserve, ojas.

According to Ayurvedic teaching, body, mind and soul are inseparably linked and thus influence each other. This influence can be both positive and negative. We are healthy when both body and mind and soul are well. The Ayurvedic view on heart disease therefore follows a holistic approach that takes into account all three components of our self.
