Ayurveda our ancient life science believes in the proverb â€œPrevention Is Better than Cureâ€ as its basic principle of

Which means Ayurveda treats the diseases but it mainly concentrates on preventing human beings to get diseases with help Swasthvrutta Acharana and Nidan Parivarjana. With this basic principle we can prevent heart diseases i.e. Hridaya roga. Ayurveda states 3 basic marmaâ€™s i.e. the vital points where Prana (live) are situated and any trauma to this spots may cause to death. Those 3 marmaâ€™s are Hridaya (Heart), Shira (head) & Basti (bladder). Out of these Hridaya is one of the most important Marma, which is also a Pranayatana (where life resides) and Moolsthan of Rasa & Rakta Vaha Srotas. Prevalence of Hridaya Roga is increasing in our country from last few decades because of change in life style, dietary habits, stress, drinking and smoking habits etc. due to this change in life style, young age peoples are suffering from heart disease. Hence our ancient science states that Hridaya Marma Paripalanam means protection and nourishment of Hridaya Marma is most important to prevent Hridaya Roga which is stated in the following quotation of Trimarmsiddhi adhyayof Charak Samhita Siddhisthan.
