Treatment of Transient Ischaemic Attack (TIA) Through Ayurveda

Abstract

A transient ischemic attack (TIA) is developed by a temporary reduction in blood flow to the brain. This is a result of the formation of blood clots that partially block the artery. This is temporary brain damage but can be severe, so proper treatment is required. Ayurveda provides proper management of the condition and not only eradicates the symptoms, but also the root causes of the condition.

Transient Ischemic Attack (TIA)

Transient Ischaemic Attack (Tia)

This term refers to a MINISTROKE and is a Medical Emergency.

  • It happens as a consequence of a temporary block that cuts off the blood supply to a part of the brain. This disruption in the blood supply decreases the oxygen supply to the brain.
  • It is the same as a STROKE, however, the symptoms persist for a very short period of time therefore it is referred to as MINISTROKE. Its effects last for few minutes to few hours and fully resolve within 24 hours.
  • It is also referred to as a WARNING STROKE as the patient now is at the risk of developing a stroke.

Etiology Behind Transient Ischaemic Attack (Tia)

  • Blockage in the form of blood clots or due to a fatty material.
  • Blockage due to blood clots is due to the narrowing of arteries via fatty deposits around the walls of the arteries.

Risk Factors Associated with Transient Ischaemic Attack (Tia)

  • Diabetes: High sugar levels is one of the most common risk factors leading to TIA
  • Atrial Fibrillation
  • Obesity: Weight gain contributes a lot to fat depositions around the arteries thereby leading to the narrowing of the vessel, therefore, resulting in Mini strokes.
  • Increased Blood Pressure
  • Regular Alcohol consumption
  • Smoking: It also increases the risk of TIA, due to the narrowing of the arteries and makes the blood easy to clot thereby resulting in blood vessel blockages.
