Peripheral artery disease

Peripheral artery disease

When each step is painful.

“I can barely walk for a long distance.” “My legs often feel cold and weak.” “My feet often look very pale.”

This or a similar experience is what people report when suffering from peripheral artery disease.

Although there might not be any complaints when the person is feeling calm, one out of every four people has to take breaks now and then until the pain subsides whenever they walk long distances. In order not to be noticed, many people stop in front of shop windows or pause to take in the view.

The reason for the muscle cramps is the narrowing of the arteries in the legs, which leads to decreased blood flow and lack of oxygen. In advanced stages, lower leg ulcers can crop up due to the destruction of the tissues.

What is the Vedic medicine point of view on peripheral artery disease?

According to the Maharishi Ayurveda approach, peripheral artery disease starts with the loss of natural balance.

Metabolic residues develop continuously due to improper lifestyle. In the case of peripheral artery disease, toxins (in Ayurveda called “Ama”) accumulate mostly in the leg arteries. It is easy to see that some of the risk factors of this disease are smoking, weight gain and diabetes.

In Ayurveda every patient is different and so each person’s peripheral artery disease complaint varies. The Ayurvedic approach at our Centre is holistic.

What is the significance of that?

Vedic medicine offers different methods of treatment. After an in-depth medical diagnosis at our Centre, a comprehensive treatment plan is individually tailored for each patient with peripheral artery disease complaints.

An increasing number of patients experience
that conventional therapies alone no longer suffice.

They recognize that healing must take place on all levels. In the case of peripheral artery disease, for example, an emphasis on elimination of toxins as well as stimulating blood flow measures can be recommended. It is important to bring all natural regulatory principles back into harmony. Nutritional recommendations and helpful exercises, as well as specific herbal mixtures tailored according to your needs, support a health-conscious lifestyle. In this way, your natural self-healing abilities can gradually expand the narrowed vessels.
