    Ayurveda is anyday better than any treatment out there but it demands a regular prstice with sincere dedication. We should try and prevent such major disease by following daily good habits like i read here : One of the major causes of heart disease is when this infection through the bacteria in the plaque enters the bloodstream and causes clots that can become lethal. Even the inflammation caused by gum disease can very often increase the incidence of clots. These clots cause a reduction in the blood flow to the heart, increase blood pressure and thus trigger a heart attack.
