High Cholesterol? Homeopathy the Natural Solution for it

Homeopathic Remedies for High Cholestrol

Cholesterol is a fatty or waxy substance present in blood that is required for normal functioning of the body.  The normal required level of cholesterol in blood is less than 200mg/dl. When the blood cholesterol rises beyond this limit, it is referred to as high cholesterol. It does not show any symptom until the cholesterol deposits in the blood vessels. When the cholesterol gets deposited in the arteries, their lumen get narrowed and hardened, which is referred to as Arteriosclerosis. As a result of this, blood supply to various organs is hindered and this leads to several symptoms depending upon the site and the degree of occlusion. When the blood supply to heart is decreased due to narrowing of carotid arteries (arteries that supply blood to the heart muscle), it leads to chest pain and shortness of breath. On complete occlusion of coronary arteries, heart attack follows. When the blood supply to the brain is hindered, brain damage leading to paralytic symptoms or memory loss results. Homeopathy for High Cholesterol not only helps in reducing the high cholesterol levels in the blood, but also dissolves the cholesterol deposits clinging to arterial walls.  The Homeopathic Remedies for High Cholesterol are made of natural substances and are completely safe with zero side effects.

Top Homeopathic Remedies for High Cholesterol

Homeopathy has a number of natural remedies that are of great help in lowering the high cholesterol levels in blood. These medicines act in two ways for high cholesterol patients. The natural remedies first help in reducing the high cholesterol levels in blood and secondly, they have the inherent power to dissolve the cholesterol deposits that have clung to the arterial walls and narrowed down their lumen. Symptoms like chest pain, palpitations and shortness of breath can also be effectively controlled by the use of natural medicines. The medicines that work best for the patient are always selected based on the symptoms narrated by each individual.

1. Allium Sativum: For Lowering High Cholesterol Level

Allium Sativum is the natural medicine for high cholesterol levels. As this remedy is made from garlic, it is considered as the best natural medicine for cholesterol control as this helps in eliminating the excess cholesterol from the body by raising the vitality of the person. The high blood pressure due to cholesterol deposits in the arteries can also be wonderfully treated with the help of Allium Sativum. The patients in whom high cholesterol is the result of excessive eating of meat can benefit by this remedy. The patients requiring Allium Sativum usually have an increased appetite, especially a craving for meat. They also suffer from acidity symptoms like burning in stomach and acrid burping or belching.

2. Aurum Metallicum: For High Cholesterol with Rapid Pulse

Aurum Metallicum is prepared from gold and is very beneficial for patients with high cholesterol levels. It is of great help in those cases of high cholesterol where the arteries have become hardened due to cholesterol deposits and where high blood pressure is present. The patients requiring Aurum Metallicum have a rapid and irregular pulse with violent palpitations. The patient may complain of pain behind the sternum, especially at night. The mental symptoms presented by the patient that hold a significance in selecting this are a depressed feeling, getting angry over the slightest contradiction and thoughts of committing suicide.

3. Calcarea Carbonica: For Reducing High Cholesterol in Overweight People

Calcarea Carbonica is the best natural remedy for reducing high cholesterol in fat or overweight patients. An unusual and excessive craving for boiled eggs is present in these patients. Excessive sensitiveness to cold air and continuous perspiration on scalp are symptoms that are always considered in patients of high cholesterol for using Calcarea Carbonica. This medicine is also of great help for patients who complain of tightness or oppression in chest or a feeling of suffocation that is intensified on going upstairs. Excessive palpitations may also be complained of at night or after having meals.

4. Nux Vomica: High Cholesterol in Patients Craving Alcohol, Fatty Food

Nux Vomica is the one of the best medicines for High Cholesterol patients who have an excessive craving for alcoholic drinks and fatty food. Mentally, such patients are very irritable and angry. They are also chronic sufferers of obstinate constipation.

5.  Crataegus Oxyacantha: For Heart Muscles

Crataegus Oxyacantha is a natural medicine that acts as a tonic for heart muscles that have become weakened due to reduced blood supply to heart as a result of deposits of cholesterol in the arteries. This medicine acts very efficiently in strengthening these weak muscles and regularising the heart’s action. Crataegus Oxyacantha ranks as the top medicine for dissolving the cholesterol deposits in arteries. The patients requiring this medicine complain of difficulty in breathing after even the slightest exertion.

6. Baryta Muriaticum: For High Cholesterol Levels in Elderly

Baryta Muriaticum is the best natural medicine for elderly people who suffer from high cholesterol levels and where the arteries have become rigid with loss of normal elasticity. The systolic pressure is always on the higher side in these patients. Baryta Muriaticum is a very beneficial remedy where the cholesterol plaques have deposited in the arteries, leading to heart and brain affections. Heaviness and vertigo consequent to the reduced blood supply to brain can be tackled well with this medicine.

7. Strophanthus Hispidus: For Reducing Extreme Effects of High Cholesterol

Strophanthus Hispidus is an excellent natural medicine for reducing the extreme effects of high cholesterol levels in blood. It is very efficient and safe remedy which can be used in old age to tone up the weak heart muscles. It also has the capacity to drain off the dropsical affections that have occurred from extreme effects on heart due to high cholesterol deposits. The heart affections that have resulted as a combined effect of tobacco smoking and high cholesterol levels also come under this medicine. The other symptoms that guide towards the use of Strophanthus Hispidus are excessive palpitations, cardiac pain and breathlessness.

    Just had Plaque levels tested and they are light and normal. My heart aches sometimes especially in freezing weather. Am usually fit and healthy and have built up my immune system over the years so am hardly ever sick. I’ve tried over the years to reduce the Cholesterol count with various plant based remedies but not much success. I really do not want to take Statins etc. but am concerned. Could you please recommend a good Homeopathic or Bach remedy treatment for me? I was thinking of Gingko biloba and Lobelia perhaps?

    Hello Dr. Sharma,

    I am 69 and have high Cholesterol. I was just diagnosed with a narrowing of the artery that supplies my right arm. I am not having symptoms which impact my use of the arm, at this time. My Cardiac Doctor said if/when I do, to call him and he would help me relieve the issue. I have not wanted to take Lipitor.
