Ayurveda’s approach to heart health is simple. It addresses quality of ‘Ojas’ that will ensure healthy heart. The heart is home to the subtlest, most refined and essential form of ojas, the positive subtle essence of strength, vigor, vitality, and immunity. The super-fine form of ojas that resides in the heart is said to sustain the activity of the heart, consciousness, and life itself. Ojas is the end product of perfect digestion and tissue nutrition. But ojas can be affected by emotional disturbance, and our overall state of consciousness. So taking care of these factors is essential for health of heart. It can be done by a two way approach, one by improving digestion and two by managing emotional balance.

“Indian tradition and Ayurveda equate heart with emotions rather than its physical activity of pumping blood. Practically any problem that heart encounters is on both physical and emotional level. So, the Ayurvedic approach to healthy heart is very different but it is very effective”

Tulsi offers a host of physical benefits, including reducing excess kapha from the lungs, promoting clear, comfortable breathing, stimulating healthy circulation, and supporting proper function of the heart. Highly sattvic in nature, tulsi is renowned for its unique abilities to heighten awareness and mental clarity and open the mind and heart to love and devotion. It takes care of the emotional well being which is very critical for health of heart.

Ginger is very good for the heart and the circulatory system because it promotes healthy circulation, vasodilation, and healthy sweating. Ginger also kindles agni, burns ama (toxins), and helps to clear the channels of the body—both subtle and gross. It also purifies the blood, strengthens digestion, and helps to eliminate toxins from the digestive tract, which in turn supports the heart.
