Holy month ramadan is auspicious for worldwide muslims and most of them starts fasting early in the morning up to the sunset in the evening during this entire month.
Heart disease patients tend to fast during ramadan but they have many questions:
1. Cardiac patients can fast?
The holy Quran exempts sick people from fasting. Fasting is allowed only for stable heart disease patient and it's strictly the discretion of the treating cardiologist.
Common types of cardiac conditions as follows:
A. Patients who had heart attack or recent stenting or open heart surgery
Many studies comparing ramadan with other months in cardiac patients shows there is no significant differences in the incidence of heart attack or typical cardiac chest pain during ramadan. Patients with recent acute heart attack, heart attack equivalent chest pain with high cardiac enzymes, recent stenting, recent open heart surgery should strictly avoid fasting.
B. Patients with low pumping of heart i. E, reduced ejection fraction
Low pumping of the heart is one of the common cause of frequent hospitalisations among cardiac patients. Many studies done in the middle east shows there was no significant difference in the number of hospitalizations for patients with low heart pumping during ramadan. Its almost similar to other months without fasting. But in this category certain groups of patients cannot fast especially patients with difficulty in breathing, associated swelling of legs, associated cough and sudden increase in weight.
C. Patients with high blood pressure.
Most of the high blood pressure patients on controlled medications can fast during ramadan as it will not affect the blood pressure readings and it was proved in many studies. Certain group of patients with resistant blood pressure who requires multiple drugs for controlling should consult treating doctors before ramadan for appropriate dose adjustments. If dose adjustment is not possible then for such patients it is advisable to abstain from fasting to avoid cardiac and other complications.
2. How to take their cardiac drugs during this month?
Stomach ulcer and related complications are common during ramadan. Hence drugs which can cause gastric irritation (like aspirin) should be taken as per the advice of treating doctor. Before ramadan you should consult your doctor and make sure regarding the dose and timing. Medications like water pill (lasix)to be avoided during fasting.
3. Lifestyle during ramadan
Avoid over eating while breaking the fast
Avoid exercise after a large meal
4. Can cardiac patients do hajj pilgrimage?
Cardiac patients who is certified as stable and fit by the treating cardiologist can go for hajj
Full medical workup is mandatory before hajj.
Patients with recent acute heart attack, heart attack equivalent chest pain with high cardiac enzymes, recent stenting, recent open heart surgery are unfit for hajj.
Take home messages-:
A. Consult your doctor before ramadan regarding your health condition and dose adjustments if required.
B. Comply to medication
C. High risk patients should avoid fasting
D. Unfit cardiac patients should not try hajj pilgrimage.

Cholesterol is a type of fatty acid that is produced by the liver. The body uses cholesterol to perform various activities such as synthesizing of hormones, bile acid and vitamin D. Ayurveda views it as an important component of the body in terms of lubrication. The Ayurvedic approach of balancing cholesterol is not only to curb the cholesterol amount, but also to strictly control diet so that the secretion of cholesterol can be curtailed. Here are a few Ayurvedic hat-tips that can help to lower cholesterol and restore normal body function of the body:
- Medicago satina: They are better known as Alfalfa and is famous for their ability to deal with artery-related diseases. They are capable of clearing arteries that are congested with cholesterol. They can be consumed daily as a whole or by mixing them in juice.
- Arjuna: Arjuna is yet another powerful Ayurvedic herb that is mighty powerful in dealing with cardiac conditions such as heart blockages, heart attacks etc. The bark of the Arjuna tree can be taken and consumed in the form of powder. They have the capability to dissolve cholesterol and prevent heart blockages. This should be consumed earlier in the morning, before breakfast with lukewarm water.
- Coriander: Coriander is considered to be one of the best herbal diuretic agents. It can revitalize the kidneys and help them perform better in terms of excretion of waste. The kidney, therefore, can flush the excess cholesterol from the body. Coriander can be consumed along with food on a daily basis.
- Garlic: Garlic again has been known to mankind for centuries and is extremely beneficial for people suffering from high cholesterol. Two cloves of garlic on a daily basis can completely neutralize the effect of high cholesterol in the blood. Apart from freeing up arteries, garlic has multiple other health benefits.
- Guggulu: This herb is one of the popular herbs among ayurvedic practitioners for treating high blood pressure and high cholesterol in the blood. They contain guggulsterones, which is known to be an active blocker of bad cholesterol in the blood. Consumption of 25 mg of this substance can make a person totally free from high cholesterol. They can be taken after any meals.
- Holy basil or tulsi: Holy basil is another popular and traditional Indian hub that is extensively used by ayurvedic practitioners to treat high cholesterol in the bloodstream. They can eliminate excess cholesterol through the kidneys. It is used for preparing multiple medicines. It is a proven medicinal herb that is very efficient in dealing with excess cholesterol in the blood. They have the ability to disintegrate cholesterol from the body. 2-3 leaves of tulsi can be consumed on a daily basis. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an ayurveda.
