Heart disease is a problem of modern times. Improper lifestyle, faulty diet and negative thinking play an important part in triggering heart disease. Vedic wisdom in Yoga lays emphasis on four aspects that have a direct bearing on health - Aachaar, Vichaar, Vyavahaar and Aahaar. Any imbalance in any of these four aspects proves detrimental to our health. Mental relaxation through meditation and Yoga contributes immensely in offsetting arteriosclerosis.
