Homeopathy for Valvular Heart

Valvular heart disease refers to several disorder and diseases of the valves of heart, which regulate the blood through the heart chambers. The mitral valve is most commonly affected, followed in decreasing order by combined mitral and aortic valve involvement. The pulmonic valve is rarely affected; rheumatic valves are prone to infection.

Valvular heart disease refers to several disorder and diseases of the valves of heart, which regulate the blood through the heart chambers.

Valvular heart disease aetiology

Historically, the most common cause of valvular heart disease was rheumatic fever. Acute rheumatic fever produces a chronic inflammatory valvulitis resulting in thickening of the valve apparatus and retraction of the valve leaflets. These changes predisposes to malcoaptation of the leaflets during valve closure and development of regurgitation. Furthermore, progressive valvular scarring and fusion of the valve opening with resultant stenosis.

The mitral valve is most commonly affected, followed in decreasing order by combined mitral and aortic valve involvement, isolated aortic valve involvement and then tricuspid valve involvement. The pulmonic valve is rarely affected; rheumatic valves are prone to infection, which in turn can result in further valvular degeneration.

Other common disorders associated with specific valvular lesions include the following:

Aortic stenosis

  • Congenitally bicuspid valve
  • Rheumatic fever
  • Calcific degeneration

Aortic regurgitation 

  • Congenitally bicuspid valve
  • Infective endocarditis
  • Rheumatic fever
  • Aneurysm of the aortic root
  • Connective tissue disease

Mitral stenosis (Homeopathy Treatment for Mitral Stenosis)

  • Rheumatic fever
  • Mitral annular calcification
  • Iatrogenic

Mitral regurgitation

  • Mitral valve prolapsed
  • Myocardial infarction or ischemia
  • Infective endocarditis
  • ‘rheumatic fever
  • Left ventricular dilatation

  • Shortness of breath – especially when lie down flat in bed.
  • Weakness or dizziness
  • Chest discomfort or pressure in chest
  • Palpitations
  • Abdominal swelling
  • Swelling of ankle and feet
  • Rapid weight gain

Diagnosis of valvular heart disease

Diagnosis of valvular heart is mainly based upon history, physical examination, sign, symptoms, and laboratory investigations.

Diagnostic tests mainly include:

  • Echocardiography
  • Transesophageal echocardiography
  • Magnetic resonance imaging

      • It is just a matter of spectrum of wisdom, anything you put inside you will effect and affect. Position kills and medicines treat by synthesis. Homeopathy is capable of not just treatment rather genetic modulation.

  • My Mother has been diagnosed with Tricuspid Valve Regurgitation Severe, I heard Kalmia Latifolia is very good can you suggest the best dose and how often.

  • altho Im 80, I am also very active, but recently been diagnosed with Aortic valve calcification, and I am beginning to feel breathless at times… Is there a homeopathic medicine that will get rid of the calcification?…and will it start doing it as soon as I start the Medication.. I assume, as well, that I should restrict taking anything that includes calcium???.. many thanks

    • 1. Do NOT stop taking natural food and drinks that contain calcium. But, also remember NOT to take calcium
      supplements. It is not the excess of calcium in the body, but it is the deposits of calcium at wrong places
      instead of bones.
      2. If you have hypercalcemia or calcification at places where it is should not be, then consider taking Magnesium
      Bisglynate and Vitamin K2 in MK-7 form. Vitamin K2 is effective in transporting the calcium from places it is not
      desired to bones. Magnesium reduces the stiffness of hypercalcemia – magnesium is involved in more than 300
      bio chemical reactions in the body and must be balanced with calcium in our bodies.

      3. Calcarea Carb may likely be beneficial. Calcarea Carb must NOT be repeated frequently in old age
