Ayurvedic Treatment of Transient Ischemic Attack (TIA)

Abstract

Transient or minor ischemic attacks are strokes caused due to loss of flow of blood (Ischemia) to the spinal cord and brain. The prevalence of these diseases is about 1.1 per 1000 in the United States and half a million people annually. In India, the incidence of the disease has been estimated between 84 and 262 per 100,000 in rural areas and up to 424 per 100,000 in urban areas.
