Heart disease is a manifestation of a chronic condition
that should not be treated by homeopathy alone. A homeopath, on the other hand, may be
able to provide you some complementary medication.
Some homeopathic remedies useful for cardiovascular conditions include:
Aconitum napellus: Useful when you are anxious and impatient. You imagine the worst happening. You feel that a strong pain envelops the heart and left arm. The problem is worse at night and when you are warm, and feel better with rest and fresh air.
Argentum nitticum: Useful when you are impulsive and fearful. Chest pain is stronger at night, after eating and with stress.
Aurum metallicum: Indicated when you are depressed, feel worthless and are very sensitive to pain. Other symptoms include depression and night-time chest pain.
Baryta carbonica: Useful when you are suffering from hypertension, palpitations and confusion, made worse with exposure to dampness or cold.
Cactus grandiflorus: When you are sad and in great pain. The pain seems to be "squeezing" the chest, making it difficult to breathe. You feel worse around noon and with exertion, but better with fresh air.
Useful for cases with a history of alcoholism and a propensity for drinking beer. This remedy helps regulate the heart and can slowly reverse symptoms.
Crataegus A general remedy that helps regulate the heart.
Should a heart attack occur, you should go to the emergency room and seek help immediately. Time is of essence. There are some homeopathic first-aid remedies that may be useful while you are waiting for EMT or while on the way to the doctor. These include:
Aconitum napellus: When you have difficulty breathing. You are anxious, but feels better sitting up.
Cactus grandiflorus: When the hear attack strikes between approximately noon and midnight. You feel as if something is "squeezing" the heart or the pain is severe enough to make you cry, shout or whimper.
Digitalis: When your symptoms include blue skin, numbness and weakness of the left arm, a slow pulse and great fear.
Caution: These remedies are not meant to be used as a treatment for heart attack. If you suspect a heart attack, seek emergency medical treatment immediately.
