The medical fraternity agreed that India's ancient stream of medicine has some miracle cures for cardio-vascular diseases. Cardiovascular problems have been dealt with at length in Ayurveda, which describes 'Hridaya' (heart) as a body organ governing emotions and circulating blood to keep a person alive and healthy.
