Homeopathy in cardiac arrhythmiaHomöopathie bei Herzrhythmusstörungen
The management of arrhythmias is known to be one of the key problems of modern cardiology because this pathology often results in sudden death. However, according to numerous clinical trials, the allopathic remedies at present used for arrhythmias control are reported to have many serious side effects and contraindications.
This investigation aims to study the efficacy of homeopathic treatment of atrial fibrillation which is one of the most severe forms of cardiac rhythm disorders.
Methods: For several years we have studied 23 elderly patients suffering from atrial fibrillation. The patients were treated only with homeopathicc drugs which were chosen according to Similarity Law. The patients took 1 to 3 remedies in high potency periodically or constantly for 1 to 7 years.
Results: In 87,3% of the patients clinical improvement was marked by the end of the third week of the treatment. 2 months after the beginning of the homeotherapy all the patients reported a stable normalization of cardiac rhythm as well as a stable improvement in their ability to work, a reduction of cardialgia frequency and intensity and a significant decrease of the number of concomitant pathology symptoms.
This work is illustrated with interesting results of the homeopathic management of a patient suffering from atrial fibrillation, Ischemic Heart Disease and Essential Hypertension.
Conclusion: We believe that Classical Homeopathy is an effective way to control atrial fibrillation even in elderly patients having severe organic cardiovascular pathology. As this method is free of any side effects, it seems to be an ideal choice for therapeutical intervention in such cases.
