Ayurvedic Treatment of Cardiospasm In India

Achalasia Cardla

  • It is called cardiospasm

Causes and symptoms.

  • It is a condition in which the lower esophagus sphincter fails to relax.
  • There will be difficulty in swallowing solid food and liquids also.
  • Chest pain, regurgitation of food will be reported during night.
  • Chest pain may occur during ingestion.
  • There is another condition called corkscrew Oesophagus, in which un co-ordinated movement of peristalsis of esophagus are seen. Chest pain will be present. These uncoordinated contractions don’t propel food effectively to stomach.
  • Usually severe pain will be there, pain increases after the exercise. This may mimic the chest pain.
  • I have seen people having this problem even after surgery.

Diagnosis

  • Barium x-ray
  • Endoscopy
  • Biopsy is taken at the lower end of esophagus to rule out cancer.
  • Sometime endoscopic procedure can produce erosion.

Advices

  • Chillies, tamarind, pickles, etc., should be avoided
  • Coffee, tea should be reduced
  • Vega dharanam must be avoided.
