What is coronary artery disease?

When the arteries supplying blood and oxygen to the heart narrow down, heart receives reduced blood flow causing coronary artery disease (CAD). Sometimes even the clot formed may obstruct the blood flow to the heart muscle.

CAD is one of the most common heart diseases.

This heart condition starts of as an injury to the inner layer of the artery wall. Cholesterol or other fatty deposits starts collecting in the area creating plaques through a process known as atherosclerosis. 

This prevents the heart to function effectively and sometimes may even create a permanent damage.

Heart collecting and receiving blood

Our heart has four chambers two lower ventricles and two upper Atria. 

Atria send blood to the lungs for collecting oxygen. This oxygen rich blood is then sent back to the heart from where the two lower ventricles distribute it to the body, lungs and tissues.

Again the impure blood containing CO2 is collected back  through the veins and supplied to heart again for pumping to the lung again. This constitutes an entire circulatory system.

Coronary arteries which are a network of blood vessels of the heart , when become narrow causes CAD.

CAD is one of the leading causes of death in Australia.

 

Coronary artery disease symptoms

During the early stages the symptoms are not easily discernible but slowly they may become some of as

  • Lack of exercise and poor diet

Is it possible to treat CAD with homeopathy?

Yes it  is possible.

Homeopathic remedies being all natural, safe and non-addictive are one of the safest alternatives to treat CAD.

These remedies work to remove the plaque deposits by triggering up the body’s natural mechanism.

Throughout your body, whenever the blood vessels start developing a  blockage – anastomotic circulation comes to action and help prevent further damage to the concerned organ. This process is known as Angiogenesis.

Homeopathic remedies simply stimulate this mechanism so that self healing can take place.

When this process receives the needed strength , a better circulation is obtained.

This in turn help manage the CAD symptoms and you obtain an overall relief.

Present day pharmaceutical drugs treat CAD with the help of statins, beta blockers, inhibitors, blockers and some cholesterol modifying medications.

But using these for chemical drugs may not always be a better idea if you are under some other medication.

For example aspirin is not suggested when you are having bleeding disorder, statins may not work for people already having cholesterol disorder and many such………….

Further, taking these medications may become our necessity when treating this heart condition but if you think they are free from side effects-the answer is no.

If you are alert enough with the symptoms mentioned above and consult a homeopath in the early stages itself, as this is the best time to help manage your symptoms most effectively.

Though homeopathy works at later stages as well but may elongate the time of recovery.

Either way, a homeopaths main focus is to eliminate the root cause by stimulating the natural healing abilities already available within.
