ABSTRACT

Cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) are the world’s largest killer claiming 17.3 million lives a year. Over 80% of the world's deaths from CVDs occur in low and middle income countries. India contributes to this as 306.3 deaths per one lac of population.1 It not only affects the individual but also affects the economic output of a country due to the inabilities and disabilities caused by it. Risk factor modifications are the best approach till date to combat with this world’s leading death causing problem. As Hippocrates stated “Take care of your health before you lose it”.2 Thus, following the tadabeer(regimens) mentioned by Unani physicians, one can be saved from being affected by the gross complications of CVDs. This article tried to highlight all the possible preventive & therapeutic approaches of Unani medicine that could be valuable for the management & control of CVDs as well as could be a source of further researches.
