Heart as the Seat
of Consciousness

By  Dr Amit Kumar Yadav

Ayurveda rests on a very interesting premise in case of the heart disease, according to which a heart disease will catch up with you before 80 years of age only when you are at fault. The meaning is simple; you can have a healthy heart working fit and fine till 80 unless you let it ache for trouble.

Heart holds a very important place in the Ayurvedic cause, diagnosis and treatment of a disease – even those other than of heart – not only on account of its function but also on account of its elevation to certain mental and spiritual equivalents of life.

That way, heart becomes the seat of:

Par ojas
Vyan vayu
Sadhaka pitta
Avalambak kapha
Mann

Charaka has mentioned of heart as the Seat of Consciousness.

Having a perfect heart depends on your positive or negative code of conduct, which are divided into four different factors.

1. Achaar or NORMAL CONDUCT
2. Ahaar or DIET
3. Vyayaam or PHYSICAL EXERCISE
4. Yog or YOGA

Another interesting premise is that all the components of the human body – four limb, trunk, head and neck, the indriyas or five sensory organs along with their objects of wisdom, mind and soul – are dependent on the normal functioning of the heart.

CAUSES

– ATI VIRECHAK VASTI or excessive purgation and enema
– CHINTA or anxiety
– BHAY or fear
– ATICHAARA or terror
– CHARDAAM SANDHARAN or faulty disease management
– KARSONANI HAIDOGKARTANI or suppression of vomiting and ama
– THATAABHIGATH or injury

SYMPTOMS

– Abnormal complexion
– Fainting
– Fever due to inflammatory heart disease
– Cough
– Hiccups due to mitral regurgitation or stenosis
– Breathlessness
– Distaste of mouth due to coronary insufficiency
– Tendency of emesis
– Loss of appetite
– Excessive thirst
– Chest pain
– Giddiness

PREVENTION

– Your normal intake of protein per day should 50 – 60 gms
– Avoid animal fat, pork, beef, meat, fats, dairy product like cream butter, ghee
– Avoid carbohydrates since they responsible for endogenous synthesis of cholesterol and triglycerides
– Reduce calories. Excess of them gives rise to obesity and obesity burdens the heart
– Use nicotinc acid since it aids in reduction of lipids in blood
– Adequate potassium and calcium in blood are required to prevent arrhythmia
– Smoking and alcohol should be restricted
– Daily intake of salt should not be more than 2-3 gms
– Take food three hours before going to sleep
– Take enough of roughage in the form of salads
– Take adequate amount of garlic and ginger. Garlic lowers the cholesterol levels and ginger reduces the blood clots
– Have a gentle morning walk of up to 2-3 km everyday
– Avoid hostile lifestyle
– Consult an expert yoga master to learn shawasana and practice it daily

TREATMENT

Heart responds happily to prevention, so the best treatment for a heart disease is to never let it happen. Second best could be anybody’s guess. But when it comes to pacify it for its heartless behavior, Ayurveda relies on a number of herbs – including a few popular ones – that prove as a boon for its afflictions. These are:

– Arjun or TERMINALIA ARJUNA
– Brahmi or BACOPA MONNIERI
– Jatamansi or NORDOSTACHYS JATAMANSI
– Guduchi or TINOSPORA CARDIFOLIA
– Punarnava or BOERHAVIA DIFFUSA
– Yestimadhu or GLYCYRRHIZA GLABRA
– Kutki or PICRORHIZA KURROA
