Herbal medicine is widely used in all diseases of the heart.Do not be afraid of the loud statements, because the first thing that patients take yourself for pain and discomfort in the chest, rapid heart rate, or just under stress, so it is the tincture of valerian, hawthorn, motherwort, peony or Corvalol (part of peppermint).And the doctor (I among them) to their patients repeatedly "nakapyvali» 10-20 drops of one of these liqueurs at the reception.In the old days at the pharmacy can be purchased ready-mixed tinctures called Morozov drops, which included: 50 ml korvalola + 25 ml of tincture of valerian + 25 ml of tincture of hawthorn fruit + 25 ml of tincture of Leonurus + (unless contraindicated), 25 ml of tincture of a peony.

Contraindications treat heart disease herbs

Herbal medicine is contraindicated if:

1. The patient has an allergic reaction to the components of the charges.
2. The patient has an allergic reaction, the treatment appeared to phytotherapeutic drugs.
3. As the only therapy for life-threatening conditions, such as increased frequency of angina attacks, increase in swelling, increased shortness of breath with exertion, dyspnea at rest connection, etc.

Herbal medicine can be used, but with caution:

1. With self-treatment, but the therapy drugs chemical nature: nitrates, antiarrhythmic drugs, cardiac glycosides, antibiotics or NSAIDs, diuretics, etc.
2. With the deterioration of general condition: quickening strokes, build-up of edema, increased dyspnea with exertion, dyspnea at rest accession, etc.Medical supervision is necessary and possible to change the tactics of the patient.
3. During pregnancy and breastfeeding.Now the "younger" heart disease, and pregnancy can occur at any age up to menopause.In particular, there is a disease leading to heart attacks in a young age (for example, antiphospholipid syndrome) and congenital or more pozdno- diagnosed cardiac disease leading to congestive heart failure, myocarditis or arising after the transferred bacterial or viral diseases.Pregnant and lactating women medication should be selected strictly individually!


What effect might achieve in the treatment and why it is so important and traditional treatment prescribed by a doctor?Treatment of diseases of the heart should be complex:

1. Modification of avoidable risk factors:
- Quitting smoking
- Weight loss
- Compliance with a balanced diet with limited animal fats
- Regular physical activity: At least 30 minutes a day 5-7once a week for
outdoors - Limit consumption of salt (not dosalivat)
- blood pressure Control
- Control cholesterol and its fractions
- Control blood sugar

2. Admission medicines chemical nature: nitrates, antiarrhythmics, cardiacglycosides, antibiotics or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, antihypertensives, diuretics, cholesterol-lowering, drugs potassium, magnesium, etc.)

3. Adjuvant therapy: phytotherapy, homeopathy, physiotherapy, physiotherapy, acupuncture, etc. *
*These methods of treatment are not mandatory, but can significantly improve the overall condition and prognosis of the disease.

I believe that all of these treatments with proper appointment will lead to a positive result.I like to prescribe herbal medicine in patients with cardiac disease, since all heart diseases require a long and sometimes life-long treatment, and herbal treatments can be carried out rates up to several months, practically without fear of complications.Of course, be treated with drugs based on herbs, it is necessary under the supervision of a doctor, that at any moment it was possible to quickly correct treatment.

Adding herbal medicine for basic treatment helps to quickly achieve the following objectives:

• slowing attacks
angina • Improved exercise tolerance (better tolerability)
• Fighting hypoxia myocardial
• Normalization of sleep and mental and emotional state
• Normalization of heart rate, preventionepisodes of arrhythmia
• Normalization of blood pressure
• Strengthening the diuretic action of diuretics chemical nature
• Improving the vitamin and mineral status of the body
• Normalization
immunity • Reduced intoxication syndrome in inflammatory diseases

But do not use herbal medicine as a single agent in diseases of the heart.In rare cases, if not heart disease is chronic, such as after suffering myocarditis, herbal medicine can be as a single treatment, and then only after consulting a doctor and therapist cardiologist.In all other cases, you should take your doctor prescribed medication.Self cancellation chemical nature of the drug leads to the development of life-threatening!
