Dilated Cardiomyopathy -- also known as ‘Congestive Cardiomyopathy’ -- is a ‘heart muscle disease’ for which Ayurveda offers effective treatment. Since the disease generally underscores an abnormality of the sufferer’s heart muscles, Ayurvedic experts at Planet Ayurveda have prepared useful herbal remedies for Dilated Cardiomyopathy, with key focus on ensuring ‘good heart health.’

Planet Ayurveda’s herbs for Dilated Cardiomyopathy mainly deal with the damage which the disease causes to the muscle tissue that constitutes the pumping chamber of the heart (that is, the left ventricle). Since this heart disease can be potentially life-threatening, the herbs used by Planet Ayurveda are 100% pure and natural; and are chiefly aimed at restoring the normal functioning of the patient’s heart.

Ayurvedic treatment for Dilated Cardiomyopathy is increasing gaining ground in modern times because this disease has become one the common heart problems, along with hypertension, heart attack, and heart failure. The main culprits for these heart diseases are obesity, a sedentary lifestyle, and unhealthy food habits. Dilated Cardiomyopathy, in particular, is a serious heart problem because it can lead to heart failures of other heart conditions, such as cardiac arrhythmias.

In the Dilated Cardiomyopathy patients, the heart is not able to pump sufficient blood to the other parts of the body, because of the thinning of the left ventricle. Lack of sufficient blood supply results in the accumulation of the fluid in the patients abdomen, lungs, ankles and other body parts; thereby posing a serious risk of heart failure.

Dilated Cardiomyopathy mostly occurs in middle-aged people; with the risk of the disease being higher in men as compared to women. Some of the common causes of the disease are: hereditary factors, alcoholism, problematic heart valve, diabetes, thyroid, coronary artery disease, complications related to pregnancy, and effect of certain drugs (like anti-cancer drugs) on the heart.


The symptoms of the disease develop gradually over a period of time, and progressively affect the functioning of the heart. Some of the general indicators of this disease are:

  • Chest pain
  • Irregular heartbeat
  • Breathlessness (Dyspnea)
  • Edema (swelling of legs and feet)
  • Fatigue (tiredness)
  • Dizziness
  • Palpitations
  • Formation of blood clots


For initial diagnosis of Dilated Cardiomyopathy, Ayurvedic experts chiefly depend on the patient’s medical history and physical examination. In addition, to formally diagnose the disease, the following tests are carried out:

  • Echocardiogram
  • Electrocardiogram (ECG)
  • Blood test
  • Chest X-Ray
  • Other tests like MRI, CT scan, heart biopsy and cardiac catheterization


Ayurveda offers a natural way for treating a number of diseases. For preparing their herbal remedies, Ayurvedic experts painstakingly assess whether there is an imbalance in the body’s three energies -- Vata, Pitta and Kapha -- which they believe are responsible for good health.

So far as Dilated Cardiomyopathy is concerned, the disease is caused due to the aggravation of Vata, primarily the Praan Vata. Hence, the herbs for Dilated Cardiomyopathy are carefully selected by experts with focus on two end-results:

  • Controlling the symptoms of the disease
  • Balancing the Vata, Pitta and Kapha energies in the body.
