Homeopathy Remedies for Atherosclerosis


Homeopathy Remedies for Atherosclerosis



Atherosclerosis is the thickening and hardening of the coronary arteries. When an artery becomes hardened, its walls become rigid and non elastic. This is caused by excessive deposits of fatty substances in the inner walls of the arteries. A diet rich in cholesterol, hydrogenated fat, and low in fiber allows plaques to form in the walls of the arteries.

 As fatty substances build-up within the inner walls of the vessel, it lessens the flow of blood to the heart muscle. If a piece of plaque wall breaks and completely obstructs the flow of blood to the heart muscle, it will lead to a heart attack. If the impairment occurs in the blood vessel that supplies blood to the brain, it will lead to a stroke.

The most common symptom of atherosclerosis is intense, pain in the chest, (angina pectoris), caused when the heart muscle does not get enough oxygen and blood supply. 

People with diabetes, high blood pressure, or high blood cholesterol may develop atherosclerosis.

A cerebral hemorrhage may occur if atherosclerosis is combined with hypertension (high blood pressure).

Deposits of fat substances pose a hazard to the vessels of the heart, brain, and lower extremities. If the blood supply to the lower extremities is reduced, it may lead to the death of the leg tissue. Diabetics may develop atherosclerotic obstructions in the arteries of the leg. One must avoid injuries to the leg.
