Abstract: Heart diseases have posed a great challenge in the developing countries. Heredity, high blood pressure, diabetes, high serum cholesterol, smoking, improper diet and stressful life styles are the factors, which are responsible for heart diseases. In Ayurveda believes that heart diseases are due to the imbalance of three doshas and bringing the normal levels of these tridoshas back to normal will be major step in management of heart diseases. Ayurveda treats heart diseases at two levels; first level is the preventive one and second level deals with the treatment of heart diseases with different plants and their formulations.
