The heart has 4 types of valve mitral valve and pulmonary valve. Mitral flow between atria & ventricle i.e. upper & lower chamber of heart while pulmonary valve controls flow of blood from the heart to lungs & aortic valve control blood flow between heart & aorta.
The damage or defect in any valve leads to disease commonly known a valve heart disease.
Valves prevents back flow of blood from one chamber to other it also responsible for the proper flow of blood in the proper direction with the proper force.
Ventricular heart disease occurs due to aging. It may be congenital means present since birth. In this disease, valves become so hard & narrow that can cause incomplete opening and closure of the valve.
Due to incomplete closure of valve blood leak back into the chamber which previously exited & stenosed valve responsible for the back force of blood in the adjucent chamber.
This leads to muscle enlargement & thinking which cause loss of elasticity & efficiency of heart muscles.in addition in some cases, blood pooling in the chambers of heart has a greater tendency to clot, increasing the risk of stroke or pulmonary embolism.

The Heart disease ran a progressive course Ayurvedic Treatment of Heart at India Central until the coronary arteries were completely blocked. But Ayurveda has proven beyond doubt that not only it is possible to stall the process of artery blockage but also the blockage can be really reversed. This implies that through measures other than angioplasty (ballooning) or bypass surgery, it is quite possible to increase the blood flow to the areas of the heart that receive less than adequate blood supply due to clogging of the coronary arteries.
It is quite disheartening that the highly technological approach to the modern medicine literally bypasses the underlying causes of the heart disease. Ayurveda, on the other hand, aims at striking at the very root of the disease. A real cure for this disease is only possible if we adopt a holistic approach as the one advocated in Ayurveda and address the problem at its very root. Shunning the age-old principles of healing described in the Vedas- the great Indian heritage, as unscientific only just because they are old, is most unfortunate. However, due to the research work, people now have come to believe that Heart Disease can be reversed.
