How to Manage TIA (Transient Ischemic Attack) With Ayurveda?

Nowadays, It is often seen that a huge proportion of the male population is suffering from the problem of Transient Ischemic Attack (TIA). This attack refers to a transient episode of Neurologic Dysfunction which occurs due to loss of blood flow (Ischemia) in the spinal cord as well as in the brain without the death of tissues. The symptoms of this disorder do not persist beyond one hour which means that its symptoms typically resolve in a short duration of time. It is also known as a “ministroke” because TIA produces similar symptoms to the stroke that lasts for a few minutes without causing permanent damage.
