Effective Herbal Remedies for Bradycardia-Tachycardia Syndrome


The courage to fight and win any difficult situation in life comes from a healthy heart. Heart being one of the most vital organs needs appropriate care. A healthy heart maintains proper blood circulation throughout the body. It is essential for supplying an ample amount of oxygen to all the tissues and organs of the body. Heart works in a rhythm involving electrical impulses. This is an advanced system that maintains the circulation of blood. The normal functioning of these rhythms lead to normal functioning of the body also. But in some cases, these rhythms are disturbed and cause a variety of diseases. One such condition is the bradycardia and tachycardia syndrome or the sick sinus syndrome. Let us discuss this condition in detail through the following article



We all know that Heart is one of the most vital organs of the body. Let us learn about a few interesting facts about the heart which are known less commonly –

  1. The size of the heart is that of the size of a fist.
  2. The heart can continue beating even when removed from the body.
  3. The heart beats almost 115000 times each day.
  4. The heart of a woman beats slightly faster than that of a male.
  5. When the blood vessels are stretched out, it would extend upto 60,000 miles.
  6. The youngest person ever to undergo a heart surgery was just a minute old.
  7. The pacemaker was first used in 1958.
  8. The smallest heart in a living creature is a fairy fly.
  9. The largest heart of a mammal is found in whales.
  10.  The rhythm of the heart is maintained by an electrical conduction system.


Sick sinus syndrome is also known as bradycardia and tachycardia syndrome. The terms bradycardia and tachycardia are two different terms representing the abnormal rhythm of the heart. Bradycardia refers to a comparatively slower heart rate than normal. While tachycardia refers to an increased heart rate over 100 beats per minute. The bradycardia and tachycardia syndrome is a condition characterized by alternative slow and fast rhythms of the heart with a long pause between the heartbeats. The heartbeat is initiated in the top chamber of the heart. This area is called the heart’s pacemaker or the sinoatrial node or sinus node. An abnormality in this area causes rhythms to become abnormal and hence the name, sick sinus syndrome. Let us now discuss the causes that lead to the condition of sick sinus syndrome.


The cause of the sick sinus syndrome is a damage usually scar like damage in the heart muscles that hinder the electrical conduction system. The sick sinus syndrome is an uncommon condition but not a rare one. The people over the age of fifty years are highly prone to this condition. In the children, a surgery of the upper chamber of the heart makes them prone to the sick sinus syndrome. Some medicines when used for a long period of time can lead to the condition of  sick sinus syndrome. This will present various symptoms which will be described as follows.


The symptoms of the sick sinus syndrome will include the following

  1. The patient complains of chest pain.
  2. He/she may experience confusion or other mental changes.
  3. Fatigue and dizziness is very commonly observed in the patients of  sick sinus syndrome.
  4. Shortness of breath is also observed. It aggravates when the physical activity is more.
  5. The patient may also experience his heart beats which are trimmed as heart palpitations.


The above symptoms will vary from patient to patient. So, examining just the symptoms will not be enough to prepare a confirmatory diagnosis. To solve this purpose, various tests can be performed. The heart rate must be monitored. Blood pressure must be monitored. ECG can be done. A very specific test namely intracardiac electrophysiology study (EPS) is used for sick sinus syndrome. However, it is not a confirmatory diagnostic test and may also not be needed in some cases.


The treatment of sick sinus syndrome according to the allopathic system will depend on your symptoms. If the person is asymptomatic, he/she may not be given any medicines. In the surgical aspect, the doctors may advise a permanent implantation of pacemaker. The graph of this disease is usually progressive i.e In simple words, it gradually worsens over time. Are there any management strategies for  sick sinus syndrome in ayurveda? How can ayurveda  help to improve the condition and what is its ayurvedic perspective? Let us learn the answer to these questions through the following content.


The ayurvedic literature presents a very unique perspective on all of the health conditions. The texts use “Hriday rog” as an umbrella term for all heart related diseases. It presents a very elaborate explanation regarding the various types of heart diseases observed in the general public. The common etiological or causative factors of these hriday rog include excessive exercise, excessive spicy food, excess fear, excess stress, excess worry, endotoxins, suppressing the natural urges of the body, etc. These causative factors will lead to various types of hridaya roga. The patient suffering from hriday rog presents the following symptoms –

  1. The complexion of the body becomes abnormal.
  2. Fainting.
  3. Febrile state
  4. Cough, hiccups
  5. Breathlessness
  6. Tastelessness
  7. Excess thirst
  8. Vomiting
  9. Anorexia, etc.

These above described symptoms are general and systemic features commonly observed in all of the patients suffering from hriday rog. The specific features will vary from patient to patient depending upon the dominance of the particular dosha. The line of treatment for the management of these hridaya roga will include stabilizing the vitiated dosha back to normal levels. The first step towards the treatment of any disease should always be nidan parivarjanam i.e. restricting the causative factors and along with it employing the suitable medicinal combinations. The ayurvedic products useful for the management of hridaya rog will be described as follows.
