World Health Day 2022: Ayurvedic ways to treat diabetes and heart disease

Every year on April 7, World Health Day is celebrated on the anniversary of World Health Organization’s founding, to draw attention to a specific health topic of global concern. This year, the WHO has urged us to reimagine our existence where clean air, water, air and food is accessible to all, and where economies are centered on wellbeing and prosperity.

According to a research, individuals with diabetes are two times more prone to fostering a heart-related issue since high levels of glucose can harm veins and the nerves that control the heart. For a country like India, this ought to be a disturbing component for two essential reasons. Firstly, a majority of diabetic individuals are not aware of it (undiscovered diabetes) and secondly, India has the biggest working populace that is right now managing serious pressure and ecological changes, both significant reasons for diabetes and heart disease.

“Fighting these evils is essential for a healthy life and what’s a better solution than our holistic ancient practice – Ayurveda. A plethora of studies have been conducted by the Ministry of Ayush that divulge how Ayurveda can be helpful in the prevention of diabetes and in turn, cardiovascular diseases,” said Dr Anand Dwivedi, Ayurvedacharya and Expert at Kapiva Academy of Ayurveda.
