1. The conclusion of this brief hypothesis; is that the first line preventive as well as healing measure (treatment) for ischemic heart disease and essential hypertension (and several other diseases mentioned in my book on Total Stress Management); is learning and practicing Total Stress Management, which is basically meant for promotion of holistic health; and is a spontaneous and natural expression of the practice of NAMASMARAN, which is its core!

Heart disease and namasmaran dr shriniwas kashalikar

  1. 1. HEARTDISEASEANDNAMASMARANDRSHRINIWASKASHALIKAR
  2. 2. About twenty years ago I had sent a working hypothesis (a guesswork or conjecture) to a medical journal. In that hypothesis I had suggested stress as a root cause; in essential or idiopathic hypertension and ischemic heart diseases (apart from many others). The hypothesis was rejected as baseless. Today I wish reiterate that hypothesis; in this article for free download; so that everyone can read and decide if it makes sense or not. The hypothesis is:1. The cholesterol, triglycerides and chemicals in blood called risk factors for ischemic heart disease and blood pressure; increase due to acute and/or chronic over activity of sympathetic nervous system; due to acute or chronic stress. Hence the root cause of ischemic heart disease and essential (idiopathic) hypertension; is stress.2. The root cause of spasms in coronary (heart) blood vessels is also acute and/or chronic over activity of sympathetic nervous system; due to acute or chronic stress.3. The root cause of constriction of the vessels of kidneys resulting in increase in rennin angiotensisn activity and subsequent increase in blood pressure and is also (in most cases); often (unnoticed) stress.
  3. 3. 4. The root cause of atherosclerosis; is the increased friction and mechanical damage and roughening of the constricting vessels; especially arterioles. As the constriction is due to over activity of sympathetic nervous system; the commonest cause of which is acute and/or chronic stress; the root cause of atherosclerosis also; in most cases; is stress.5. It is agreed that some people would be genetically more prone to stress and subsequent ischemic heart disease and blood pressure. But that does not disprove or even create a doubt about the hypothesis of stress as a root cause of bad lipids, spasms and atherosclerosis and subsequent ischemic heart disease and essential (idiopathic) hypertension.6. One can read the pathophysiology text books and then think about confirming or ruling out (through statistical surveys, clinical studies, experimental work etc.) this hypothesis.7. However; till then; we can apply common sense and reason out; how stress and its inappropriate management can disturb the metabolic, endocrine, neuroendocrine, autonomic nervous and central nervous activities and influence various tissues including heart vessels and other blood vessels in body.8. It is important to remember that this damaging stress is often subconscious, during sleep and even during embryonic life and hence goes unnoticed.
  4. 4. 9. The conclusion of this brief hypothesis; is that the first line preventive as well as healing measure (treatment) for ischemic heart disease and essential hypertension (and several other diseases mentioned in my book on Total Stress Management); is learning and practicing Total Stress Management, which is basically meant for promotion of holistic health; and is a spontaneous and natural expression of the practice of NAMASMARAN, which is its core!
