A structural issue with the heart that exists from birth is referred to as congenital heart disease. This disorder is brought on by genetic flaws. Because it has not fully or incorrectly evolved, the heart cannot work properly. The heart’s blood flow is out of the ordinary. Arrhythmias, structural anomalies, and cardiomyopathies (abnormalities of the heart fibers) can all occur. Some of the abnormalities that are usually identified include unusual connections between two vessels that occur outside of the heart, valvular malformations, or the occurrence of holes inside the heart’s muscle walls. The flaws may include;
- The heart’s lining.
- Cardiac valves.
- Vascular system.
- Arterial system.
- Close to the heart veins.
Typical conditions include:
- A hole in the septa (membrane) separating the atria (the upper chambers of the heart) causes oxygen-rich blood from the left atrium to flow into the right atrium rather than the left ventricle as it should. The medical term for this ailment is an atrial septal defect (ASD). Many kids with this condition exhibit minimal if any, symptoms. Since most ASDs are mild, no therapy is necessary. Medium-sized ASDs may occasionally need surgical repair using a catheter technique.
- A hole in the membrane separating the ventricles (lower chambers of the heart) is known as a ventricular septal defect (VSD), which causes oxygen-rich blood to flow into the right ventricle instead of the aorta and out to the body as it should. VSDs come in many sizes.
Any damage within the heart, coronary arteries, or inadequate oxygen and nutrition delivery to the heart can result in heart disease. Congenital heart disease is characterized by structural issues with the heart. Respiration may be impacted if there is a difficulty with the heart’s normal blood flow. Although the precise cause is yet unknown, the following are suspected causes:
- Pregnant women who use alcohol or illicit substances run the chance of their unborn child being born with a heart defect.
- Children born to mothers who contracted a virus in the first trimester of pregnancy are more likely to have cardiac defects.
- Gastric ulcer disease.
- The heart condition could be inherited.
- Prescription drug use during pregnancy increases the likelihood that the unborn child will have a cardiac abnormality.
The inability to breathe, rapid heartbeat, and chest discomfort are all typical signs of heart disease. If untreated, cardiac disorders can lead to heart attacks and cardiac failure. Identical to angina, heart attack symptoms can sometimes happen when you’re resting and are typically more severe. Breathlessness, faintness, excessive sweating, nausea, and vomiting are further symptoms. Some cardiac diseases, particularly in the elderly and those with diabetes, don’t even have any symptoms at all.
Homeopathic Treatment for Congenital Heart Disease:
Congenital heart abnormalities come in many different varieties. They could be simple ailments with no warning signs or complex problems with severe, occasionally fatal, consequences. Another branch of medicine that takes a thorough approach to treating patients with congenital heart disease is homeopathy. Homeopathy treats a person as an entire person, rather than just the affected body parts. It focuses on all of the condition’s indicators that help the individual’s overall wellness better.
Heart conditions can be effectively treated with homeopathy. Treatment for heart illness, including hypertension, hypercholesterolemia, and cardiac arrhythmias, can be greatly aided by homeopathic drugs. Additionally, these treatments stop other heart attacks triggers, like elevated cholesterol and excessive blood pressure. There are numerous efficient homeopathic treatments for the heart, but the choice is patient-specific and takes into account both physical and psychological symptoms:
- Aurum metallicum: Valvular damage followed by heart failure. Walking causes a relaxed heart. Two to three seconds of feeling as if the heart stopped beating, followed by a violent rebound and sinking near the epigastrium. At its core, oppression. Rapid, weak, and erratic heartbeat. High blood pressure.
- Digitalis purpurea: It is a fantastic treatment for irregular heartbeat heart failure. Feel like if you moved, your heart would cease beating; you must hold your breath and remain quiet. The heartbeat was strong, full, irregular, and erratic, pausing every third, fifth, or seventh beat. poor heart. Violent palpitations are triggered by even minor movements. repeatedly stitching the heart.
- Strophanthus: It is most effective for heart failure patients with leg edema. Due to muscular weakness and inadequacy, the heart beats quickly, unevenly, and weakly. Rapid pulses alternate with weak, sluggish, and little irregular beats.
- The heart’s muscles appear sluggish and worn out. Heart affliction accompanied by oppression, stitching, and insomnia. extreme dyspnea with little to no increase in heart rate. Heart enlarged, weak first sound. faulty valves and valvular murmurs.
- Cardus marianus: Effective for heart failure with liver issues. Heart area discomfort, including pressure and stitching, and obstruction to deep breathing.
- Naja tripudians: Valvular diseases and heart failure with weakness. palpitations that can be seen. cardiac damage caused by viral illnesses.
Precautions for Congenital Heart Disease:
- Avoid smoking since it increases your risk of developing heart and cardiovascular diseases.
- Reduce your alcohol consumption.
- Control other medical issues, such as diabetes or high blood pressure, as they eventually have an impact on the heart.
- Congenital and hereditary abnormalities may make some heart disorders incurable, but the following actions can help avoid other types of heart disease:
- Consume a healthy diet.
- Regularly moving around. This will improve heart and vascular health, lower cholesterol, and keep blood pressure steady.
