Cardiovascular diseases are the chief cause of death in global level. An estimated 17.9 million people died from CVDs in 2019, representing 32% of the total global deaths. Most of them can be prevented by addressing behavioural risk factors including tobacco use, improper diet, obesity, physical inactivity and alcohol use. If we are able to detect cardiovascular disease as early as possible then management with counselling and medicines can begin at earliest. Prevention is better than cure. For that proper ahara, vihara, dinacharya and ritucharya etc help in wide array of diseases and at the other hand help us to keep fit and healthy. The yet another dimention of prevention of diseases is an early diagnosis of the disease at its budding stages. This stage’s can be explained with help of Shad kriya kala. By knowing the concept of shat kriyakala the disease pathogenesis can be arrest at initial stage and avoid the Probabilities of complications. Acharya Sushrutha had mentioned that the kriyakala helps the physician to propose the early line of treatment by seeing the vitiated dosha condition. So we can say that the physician who diagnose a disease and treat according to shatkriyakala will be become a successful Practitioner.
