PREFACE

Heart disease is the single most important cause of premature death in the developed world. Affluent Indians, who are over-fed & under-exercised, have one of the high rate of coronary heart disease in the world. About 50 million Indians are estimated to be suffering from coronary heart disease and nearly 100 million are at the risk of developing it in the near future. The disease is likely to become the number one killer in India, in the nest two decades.

A team of reputed doctors of Ayurveda and Chinese herbal medicine along with eminent scientists has been working with me since 1987 to explore the role of herbs in the treatment of cardiovascular diseases. We have already identified around 300 cardiac herbs which can effectively be used for the treatment of various heart diseases. The herbs mentioned in this book are based on medical and scientific research. The modern technological advances can reveal activities of certain compounds in the herbs, which were not known so far. With the advanced knowledge of molecular science and the refinement of isolation & structure elucidation techniques, we are now in a much better position to identify new drugs of the herbal origin.

The herbs have always been in use as medicine and it has been observed that the human body is much better suited to herbal remedies. The knowledge of herbs is our invaluable heritage, which belongs to the present and future generations; keep it alive and pass it on.
