  • Ayurveda has been always great but as far as I know when blockage increases one have to move to hospital in case of cardio and vascular diseases.

  • When the problem is mechanical it should be done that way.There is no substitute for surgery and or stents in case of sever cases of blockages in the cornery arteries.
