High stress leading to scarring of the arterial wall, which the body tries to cover with plaque formation. Gradually the vascular walls thicken and become rigid, causing it to rupture. High blood -pressure too is a cause as the pressure of the blood against the arterial wall can lead to its thinning making the blood vessels rupture.
Yogic treatment-the stress is removed with meditation while asana that stretch and flex them are practised with or without help to revive the blood vessels . The healing energy is increased in the system with therapeutic mantras and yoganidra.
