Natural Remedy for Heart disease

Natural remedy of heart disease in Naturopathy is directed towards a well balanced diet. A curative diet designed to alter body chemistry and improve the quality of general nutritional intake can, in many cases, reverse the degenerative changes which have occurred in the heart and blood vessels. The diet should be lacto-vegetarian, low in sodium and calories. Foods which should be eliminated are all white flour products, sweets, chocolates, canned foods in syrup, soft drinks, squashes, all hard fats of animal origin such as butter, cream and fatty meats. Diet should incorporate high quality, natural organic foods, with emphasis on whole grains, seeds, fresh fruits and vegetables. Salt and sugar should be reduced considerably. The patient should also avoid tea, coffee, alcohol and tobacco.

A number of studies have indicated that garlic can reduce the cholesterol level in persons whose body in general cannot control the cholesterol fractions. Other important cholesterol lowering foods are alfalfa and yogurt. Best food sources are unrefined, raw, crude vegetable oils, seeds and grains. Fruits and vegetables in general are extremely beneficial in the cure of heart disease. Seasonal fruits are quite valuable heart tonics. Apples in particular contain heart stimulating properties and the patients suffering from the weakness of heart should make liberal use of apples and apple jams. Fresh grapes, pineapples, oranges, custard apples, pomegranates and coconut water also tone up the heart. Grapes are useful in heart pain and palpitation of the heart and the disease can be rapidly controlled if the patient adopts an exclusive grapes diet for few days. Grape juice in particular will be valuable when one is in fact suffering from a heart attack.
Indian gooseberry or amla is considered an effective home medication for heart disease. It tones up the functions of all the organs of the body and builds up health by destroying the heterogeneous elements and renewing lost energy. Another excellent home remedy for heart disease is onions. They are functional in normalising the percentage of blood cholesterol by oxidising excess cholesterol. One teaspoon of raw onion juice first thing in the morning will be extremely advantageous in such cases. Honey has marvellous properties to prevent all sorts of heart disease. It tones up the heart and improves the circulation. It is also effective in cardiac pain and palpitation of the heart. One tablespoonful on a daily basis after food is sufficient to prevent all sorts of heart troubles.

Patients afflicted with heart disease should increase their intake of foods rich in vitamin E, as this vitamin promotes the functioning of the heart by improving oxygeneration of the cells. Many whole meal products and green vegetables, particularly outer leaves of cabbage are good sources of vitamin E. The vitamin B group is vital for heart and circulatory disorders. The best sources of vitamin B are whole grains. Vitamin C is also important as it protects against spontaneous breaches in capillary walls which can lead to heart attacks. It also guards against high blood cholesterol. The stress of anger, fear, distress and similar emotions can raise blood fat and cholesterol levels instantly but this reaction to stress can do little harm if the diet is sufficient in vitamin C and pantothenic acid. The richest sources of vitamin C are citrus fruits.

The following is the suggested diet for persons suffering from hypertension or some disorder of the heart:

Breakfast: Fresh fruit such as apples, grapes, pears, peaches, pineapple, orange, melons, one or two slices whole meal toast, yogurt, skimmed milk or soya milk.

Mid-morning: Fresh fruit juice or coconut water.
Lunch: Combination salad of vegetables such as lettuce, cabbage, endive, carrots, cucumber, beetroot, tomato, onion and garlic.

Mid-afternoon: One or two whole meal biscuits and fruit juice.

Dinner: Fresh fruit or vegetable juice or soup, two lightly cooked vegetables, one or two whole wheat tappets.

The patient should also pay attention to other laws of nature for health building such as taking moderate exercise, getting proper rest and sleep, adopting the right mental attitude and getting fresh air and drinking pure water.

The use of an ice bag on the spinal area between the second and tenth thoracic vertebrae for thirty minutes three times a week, a hot compress applied to the left side of the neck for thirty minutes every alternate day and massage of the abdomen and upper back muscles are water treatments which are beneficial in cases of heart disease. Hot foot and hand baths are exceptional for relieving the pain of angina pectoris. Asanas such as shavasana, vajrasana, and gomukhasna, yogic kriyas like jalneti and pranayamas such as shitali, sitkari and bhramari are also helpful in providing respite to heart patients.
