Homeopathy Treatment for Cardiovascular Disease/Heart Disease

Cardiac arrest is sudden and unexpected stoppage of circulation as a result of an electrical disturbance in the heart, either ventricular fibrillation or asystole. No pulse of heart sound is heared. After a variable period. Respiration ceases and pupils dilate. Effective circulation must be established within three minutes or else permenant damage to the brain and usually death occurs.

Try to restore the circulations by raising the legs to increase venous return. Give a blow on the chest and it this does not help then artificial respiration should be resorted to.

Patient, usually an elderly, complains of severe cramping pain or discomfort in the legs while walking or on exertion, disappearing after a short rest or within minutes of cessation of activity. However, the  pain recurs when the walk is resumed. The condition is INTERMITTENT CLAUDICATION.

It may also be caused by inflammatory disease of arteries like thrombangitis  obliterans or infection like subacute bacterial endocarditis, tuberculosis, syphilis, typhoid fever or polyarteritis nodosa, gaint cell arteritis , tuberculosis, syphilis thyroid fever or polyarteritis nodosa, giant cell arteritis, rheumatoid disease, etc. intermittent claudication can alse take place due to abnormal vasoconstriction as in Reynaud’s disease, or due to physical or chemical agents such as trauma, contusion, intravenous fistula or aneurysm; other causes include, chilblains, frostbite, trench foot and immersion foot; or phenols, ergot, etc.

The symptoms will vary slighty depending upon the site of obstruction inflammation or degeneration.

 It buergers disease, this occlusion is mostly in the lower tibial or planter arteries and its claudication is felt in the foot.


Signs of sudden cardiac arrest are immediate and drastic and include:

  • Sudden collapse
  • No pulse
  • No breathing
  • Loss of consciousness

Sometimes other signs and symptoms occur before sudden cardiac arrest. These might include:

  • Chest discomfort
  • Shortness of breath
  • Weakness
  • Fast-beating, fluttering or pounding heart (palpitations)

But sudden cardiac arrest often occurs with no warning.


The usual cause of sudden cardiac arrest is an abnormal heart rhythm (arrhythmia), which happens when your heart's electrical system isn't working correctly.

The heart's electrical system controls the rate and rhythm of your heartbeat. If something goes wrong, your heart can beat too fast, too slowly or irregularly (arrhythmia). Often these arrhythmias are brief and harmless, but some types can lead to sudden cardiac arrest.

The most common heart rhythm at the time of cardiac arrest is an arrhythmia in a lower chamber of your heart (ventricle). Rapid, erratic electrical impulses cause your ventricles to quiver uselessly instead of pumping blood (ventricle fibrillation).


Sudden cardiac arrest can happen in people who have no known heart disease. However, a life-threatening arrhythmia usually develops in a person with a preexisting, possibly undiagnosed heart condition. Conditions include:

  • Coronary artery disease. Most cases of sudden cardiac arrest occur in people who have coronary artery disease, in which the arteries become clogged with cholesterol and other deposits, reducing blood flow to the heart.
  • Heart attack. If a heart attack occurs, often as a result of severe coronary artery disease, it can trigger ventricular fibrillation and sudden cardiac arrest. Also, a heart attack can leave scar tissue in your heart. Electrical short circuits around the scar tissue can lead to abnormalities in your heart rhythm.
  • Enlarged heart (cardiomyopathy). This occurs primarily when your heart's muscular walls stretch and enlarge or thicken. Then your heart's muscle is abnormal, a condition that often leads to arrhythmias.
  • Valvular heart disease. Leaking or narrowing of your heart valves can lead to stretching or thickening of your heart muscle. When the chambers become enlarged or weakened because of stress caused by a tight or leaking valve, there's an increased risk of developing arrhythmia.
  • Heart defect present at birth (congenital heart disease). When sudden cardiac arrest occurs in children or adolescents, it can be due to congenital heart disease. Adults who've had corrective surgery for a congenital heart defect still have a higher risk of sudden cardiac arrest.
  • Electrical problems in the heart. In some people, the problem is in the heart's electrical system itself instead of a problem with the heart muscle or valves. These are called primary heart rhythm abnormalities and include conditions such as Brugada syndrome and long QT syndrome.


Because sudden cardiac arrest is so often linked with coronary artery disease, the same factors that put you at risk of coronary artery disease can also put you at risk of sudden cardiac arrest. These include:

  • A family history of coronary artery disease
  • Smoking
  • High blood pressure
  • High blood cholesterol
  • Obesity
  • Diabetes
  • An inactive lifestyle

Other factors that might increase your risk of sudden cardiac arrest include:

  • A previous episode of cardiac arrest or a family history of cardiac arrest
  • A previous heart attack
  • A personal or family history of other forms of heart disease, such as heart rhythm disorders, congenital heart defects, heart failure and cardiomyopathy
  • Growing older — the risk of sudden cardiac arrest increases with age
  • Being male
  • Using illegal drugs, such as cocaine or amphetamines
  • Nutritional imbalance, such as low potassium or magnesium levels
  • Obstructive sleep apnea
  • Chronic kidney disease


When sudden cardiac arrest occurs, reduced blood flow to your brain causes unconsciousness. If your heart rhythm doesn't rapidly return to normal, brain damage occurs and death results. Survivors of cardiac arrest might show signs of brain damage.


Reduce your risk of sudden cardiac arrest by getting regular checkups, being screened for heart disease and living a heart-healthy lifestyle.


 Lachesis mutus - patient is extremely sensitive to exertion and touch, and heat ameliorates, walking for long distances causes pain in the shin bone and cramps and the calf muscles. Sensation as if shortening of tendos with pain in the tibia; constant feeling of sense of constriction.

Lacticum acidum- patient has generalized weakness after exercise or long walks, particularly in rheumatic constitution and diabetics. There is weariness and debility of the limbs that develops into an aversion for exercise. Flying pains in the limbs.
