Heart Disease Natural Remedies and Alternative Therapy

ALTERNATIVE THERAPIES – Natural and Complimentary Care for Heart and Cardio-Vascular Disease

Homeopathy

  • Homeopathy should not be used instead of immediate medical attention for a heart attack. Homeopathy may, however, be used to help reduce your risk of heart disease. Although few studies have examined the effectiveness of specific homeopathic remedies, professional homeopaths would recommend appropriate therapy to lower high blood pressure and cholesterol. Before prescribing a remedy, homeopaths take into account your constitutional type. In homeopathic terms, a person’s constitution is his or her physical, emotional, and intellectual makeup. An experienced homeopath assesses all of these factors when determining the most appropriate remedy for you as an individual.
  • Herbal Medicine and Chelation Therapy are considered part of homeopathy.

Acupuncture

  • Acupuncture may be helpful in reducing some risk factors for heart disease. Some studies show that it can help people who want to stop smoking, and it may help some people lose weight and lower their blood pressure.

Massage and Physical Therapy

  • Although few studies have examined the effectiveness of massage therapy for heart disease, massage has a relaxing effect and can reduce stress related hormone levels. Lowering stress hormone levels can lower cholesterol and blood pressure, reducing your risk of heart disease. In addition, relaxation techniques may help you make lifestyle changes such as eating healthy, quitting smoking, and exercising. At least one study found that massage can lower blood pressure.

Chinese Medicine

  • Chinese medicine attributes most heart problems to poor digestion causing plaque buildup
  • Blocks or weaknesses in your energy centers are also considered
  • Herbs, diet, nutrition, and acupuncture are the primary tools used in Traditional Chinese Medicine

Ayurvedic Medicine

  • This ancient Indian system of medicine focuses on free radical and digestive system damage from poor diet
  • Herbs, foods and nutrition are the primary tools along with exercise

Oxygen Therapy

  • Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) has been shown very helpful for many stroke victims. Getting more oxygen to the brain minimizes brain tissue damage. It is surprising HBOT is not in every leading emergency room facility. David Steenblock, MD and DO is quoted in Alternative Medicine as saying “Every emergency room in the United States should have HBOT and every physician trained in its use.”
  • HBOT therapy may have general anti-aging benefits and is increasingly used post surgically by plastic surgeons to aid tissue healing.
  • Many leading naturopathic centers now have HBOT along with Nutritional IV therapy

Enzyme Therapy

  • Some natural enzyme therapies are emerging that target the bloodstream, not the digestive tract, to reduce inflammation and disease precursors.
