Is there any cure for Atrial Septal Defect in homeopathy?

Posted by: bonny

Is there any cure for Atrial Septal Defect in homeopathy? please let me know. i am now in bangalore.

It depends whether the patient is a child or an adult. Homeoapthy could help in the closure of an ASD in a child. But in an adult, only palliative treatment is possible. Surgical intervention may be necessary.

Usually if this is diagnosed early in life, surgery is done after the age of 7 years or so. Otherwise homeopathy can help palliate symptoms.
Hope this help,

    • Hi Sean,
      IF there were studies to support, would homeopathy worldwide be having such a good time?

      The commonest ASD is what is termed as “hole in the heart” that is usually detected in new borns. There have been many (as of yet) anecdotal cases reported where the ‘hole’ has spontaneously closed a few months after homeopathic treatment.

      In fact about 8 years ago we treated a case of Ventricular Septal defect in a 2 year old child with repeated respiratory infections with the remedy NAja Tripudans. The Echo dopler report after 3 months showed a reduction in the size of the defect by almost 50%, which could only be attributed to the homeopathic treatment going on at that time.
      But this is as far as “studies” go…
