Valvular Heart Disease - 5 Reasons Behind it

DHMS
Homeopath, Mumbai
Valvular Heart Disease - 5 Reasons Behind it

There are valves in the each of the four chambers of the heart. These valves make sure that blood flows in one direction only. The blood flows from the atria into the ventricles through the mitral and the tricuspid valves. The pulmonic and the aortic valves allow the blood to flow out of the ventricles. Valve problems occur when the normal functioning of the valve is impaired. 

Impaired valve function leads to blood flow obstruction, which in turn can lead to stenosis of the valve. This puts lot of strain on the heart muscles, forcing it to work harder. It may also lead to the blood flowing backwards through the valve and back into the heart.

The various causes of valvular heart disease are:

  1. Valvular heart disease: If you are suffering from rheumatic fever, it may lead to valvular heart disease
  2. Congenital heart disease: Congenital heart disease refers to various defects in the heart which are present since birth. In some cases, these defects may include being born with abnormal valves.
  3. Heart attack: If you have suffered a heart attack, your heart muscles may be damaged or impaired.
  4. Cardiomyopathy: This is a genetic disorder that is characterized by an inability of the heart to pump blood efficiently.
  5. Age: Ageing may cause certain changes in the body that lead to valvular heart disease. 

Valvular heart disease is treated by various homeopathic remedies that do not have any side effect. It takes a holistic approach to healing the body as it gets to the root of the disease. The various homeopathic remedies for valvular heart disease are:

  1. Cactus grandiflorus: This remedy is used in a number of heart complications such as stenosis of the valve. It helps in getting rid of the inflammation in the heart muscles, so that the heart can pump blood efficiently.
  2. Digitalis: Digitalis is another remedy that helps in healing the muscles of the heart by regulating the pulse. 
  3. Kalmia latifolia: Kalmia latifolia is a homeopathic remedy that is used in treating various complications of the heart. It also helps in symptoms of rheumatic fever that may lead to valvular heart disease. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a homeopath.

Hi you should start taking a diet less in oil and saturated fats. Avocado oil carries the monounsaturated fat that protects heart by reducing LDL cholesterol levels and hence can be used in cooking. Add oatmeal and high fiber foods in your diet like beans, apples, barley, pears etc. Non vegetarians can turn towards having fish as fish contains omega 3 that has many benefits for heart. Even, walnuts, almonds and other nuts can improve blood cholesterol.

Dear lybrateuser, -the burning sensation in your chest is due to acidity -avoid fried, spicy & junk food, aiso reduce consumption of tea, coffee to 1-2 cups per day, avoid alcohol & tobacco if you consume the same -do not skip breakfast & other meals, have 5-6 small meals including snacks in between main meals, chew your food properly, have dinner 2-3 hrs before bedtime, do not lye down immediately after meals -have 8-10 glasses of water a day to wash away the toxins & for proper digestion -do regular exercise for 20-30 min a day, also do yoga for 10-15 min as it is good for digestion -take syrup digene gel, 2 teaspoonful 20 min before every meal -also reduce stress & sleep well for 7-8 hrs in the night this reduces acidity -reduce your vit d intake after consulting your doctor as it will improve your appetite.

How can I reduce my weight? Now I am 56 years of age, weight 70 kg. I have hypertension, no blood sugar, cholesterol is slight high, to maintain it I am taking 2 pieces of garlic.

How can I reduce my weight? Now I am 56 years of age, weight 70 kg. I have hypertension, no blood sugar, cholesterol ...
Being a dietitian my views: there is no single diet chart for everyone. To plan a specific diet we do collect lot of information like height, weight, food frequency, digestive history, medical history, likes, dislike, lifestyle, eating habits. Remember one thing to follow a diet it should be personalized according to person's body type and not generalized. Starting with there is no pills or powder or shake which can help you to lose weight in a healthy way. To lose weight eat an hour within walking up and dinner at least 2 hours before you sleep. Avoiding eating anything after dinner. Breakfast should be your king size have good complex carbohydrates and protein rich. Eat every 2 hours small frequent meal do help in weight loss. And do not overeat. One can come to ideal body weight with few lifestyle modification. Have green tea only 2 cups a day. For exercise I would say diet plays 80 % role and exercise plays 20 % role in losing weight. Personal advise on gym. You should not make your body habituated with machines rather do simple walk or surya namaskar or planks. So only with healthy eating one can lose weight.

Hello sir. Echocardiograpghy is a test in which we assess your heart's functioning. Size of different chambers, functioning of valves whether obstructed or leaking, any weakness of any part of or whole of heart chambers especially left ventricle, efficiency of pumping commonly expressed in terms of ejection fraction or ef. By this we can estimate the normacy or if any abnormality then its severity, plan treatment and asses the effect of treatment during followup. Thank you and goodluck.
