Now a days, Atherosclerosis is one of the burning problem . It is mostly seen in after 50 years of age but also may be seen in young adults. The main cause of its development is deposition of lipids. It is mainly seen in the walls of all major conduit arteries. Atherosclerosis is mostly responsible for MI but Sometimes after breaking it also forms thrombus that is most responsible for CVA. The rate of development is depends upon some risk factors like hypertension, tobacco smoking, diabetes mellitus, obesity, and genetic predisposition. In this article I like to emphasize the “Anti-atherosclerotic effect” of Homoeopathic proved medicine “Parthenium”. Parthenium is a good acting remedy against malaria-that is well proved but how it reduces also the probability of atherosclerosis which is going to discus in the following paragraph.
