Top Homeopathic Remedies for Achalasia Cardia

Achalasia cardia is a rare motility disorder of the esophagus or food pipe. This disorder causes the esophageal muscle to not contract properly, due to which the LES (lower esophageal sphincter) is unable to relax properly. The scope of treating achalasia cardia with homeopathy is limited to mild and moderate cases. Homeopathic medicines like Alumina, Kali Carb, and Lachesis can be used to help treat achalasia cardia symptomatically.

Homeopathic medicines for Achalasia Cardia.

The esophagus is a tube that carries food from the mouth to the stomach. The muscle layer of the esophagus contracts to move the food down from throat to the stomach. The esophagus has two sphincters. One sphincter lies at the upper end of the esophagus (upper oesophageal sphincter, UES) and another at the lower end of the esophagus (lower oesophageal sphincter, LES). The UES relax when the food has to enter esophagus from the throat, and the LES relaxes when food has to enter the stomach from the esophagus. Rest of times both these sphincters remain closed. In achalasia cardia, the esophageal muscles don’t contract properly. As a result, the swallowed food doesn’t move down into the stomach. In addition to this, the lower end of esophagus lying immediately above the LES begins to dilate.

Homeopathic Management of Achalasia Cardia

Cases of achalasia cardia can be symptomatically managed with the help of natural homeopathic medicines. However, in severe cases of achalasia cardia, it should be noted that homeopathy doesn’t have any significant role to play and help from the conventional mode of treatment is required. Homeopathic medicines aim at giving symptomatic relief in cases of achalasia cardia. Homeopathic prescription for achalasia cardia varies from case to case as per the individual characteristic features. Some of the well indicated homeopathic medicines for symptomatic management of achalasia cardia are – Alumina, Kali Carb, Lachesis, Phosphorus, Robinia, and Carbo Veg.

Homeopathic Medicines for Symptomatic Management of Achalasia Cardia

Alumina – Natural Medicine for Difficulty Swallowing Solids due to Achalasia Cardia

Alumina is a natural homeopathic medicine for managing swallowing difficulties (dysphagia) in cases of achalasia cardia. People who need Alumina find it very difficult to swallow solids. They need to cut their food in very small pieces before eating it. It is also extremely difficult for the food to pass down the food pipe and reach the stomach. It seems to get lodged in the food pipe. The person can feel the food lying in the whole length of the food pipe, and there is a sensation of a lump present in the throat.

Kali Carb – Natural Remedy for Food Being Stuck in the Food Pipe in Achalasia Cardia

Kali Carb is a natural homeopathic remedy for achalasia cardia when the food gets stuck in the food pipe. The person needing Kali Carb often complains that the food passes very slowly down the food pipe and lodges halfway there. A stinging pain may be felt in the throat while swallowing. There may be vomiting right after eating.

Lachesis – Natural Homeopathic Medicine For Achalasia Cardia where there is Difficulty Swallowing Liquids

Homeopathic medicine Lachesis is useful in case of achalasia cardia where the person experiences difficulty in swallowing. Solid food is swallowed easily but is difficult to swallow liquids. Liquids tend to back up and return through the nose. A constant sensation of a lump in the throat is present in a majority of the cases needing Lachesis.

Phosphorus – Natural Treatment for Regurgitation of Food in Achalasia Cardia

Phosphorus is an effective homeopathic remedy for achalasia cardia where there is a regurgitation of food. The lower end of esophagus seems contracted. The food comes up again in mouthfuls. This happens soon after swallowing the food. Nausea during the night is also common. A burning sensation in the food pipe (heartburn) is also present with the above symptoms.

Robinia – Effective Medicine for Heartburn in Achalasia Cardia

Robinia is prepared from the fresh bark of the root and young twigs of a plant named Robinia Pseudo-acacia. The natural order of this plant is Leguminosae. Robinia is a very effective homeopathic medicine for treating achalasia cardia when heartburn is most troublesome. Heartburn is most worse at night on lying down and is accompanied by vomiting of intensely sour fluid.

Carbo Veg – Natural Treatment for Heartburn in Cases of Achalasia Cardia

Carbo Veg is an effective homeopathic medicine for managing heartburn in cases of achalasia cardia. Along with heartburn sour, putrid belching appears. In some cases, water-brash may also be present. Vomiting of food is another indicative feature to use Carbo Veg.

Causes of Achalasia Cardia

Achalasia Cardia is thought to arise from damage to the nerves of the esophagus, as a result of which the muscle and sphincter of the esophagus do not work properly. The reason for nerve damage is yet unclear, and it is thought that an autoimmune process or a viral infection may cause degeneration of nerves in the esophagus. It is seen that older adults are more at risk to develop achalasia cardia than people of other age groups. In some rare instances, this condition can be hereditary and show a tendency to run in families.

Symptoms of Achalasia Cardia

The major symptom of achalasia cardia is difficulty in swallowing (dysphagia) that that keeps getting worse with time. Sometimes the condition worsens to an extent where it is entirely impossible for the food to enter the stomach. A sensation of food or liquid sticking in the food pipe or sensation of a lump in the throat is very commonly seen in cases of achalasia cardia. Other symptoms of achalasia cardia include heartburn, chest discomfort/chest pain, regurgitation (bringing back of the food/liquids swallowed into the mouth), coughing and frequent choking episodes. Gradual weight loss is also seen along with the above symptoms in some of the cases of achalasia cardia.

  7. Hi Dr sharma, i was reading the above mentioned details regarding achalasia . My aunt is suffering from this now a days and drs suggested to go for the POEM. Which is costly and budget issues.. so here i need consultation that whether the homeopathic treatment is good and effective or not.
    Write me back please

  8. Patricia Jairamsingh says:

    I have Achalasia and was looking for some homeopathics to see if they can help. I am at the severe stages now. It too approx a year to progress. But now after two or three swallows of both solid and liqiuds I am forced to regurgitate, and then I try again. I am loosing weight at a steady pace now. I had an endoscope done just to see if it was a tumour in my esophagus, which came back clear. I went for a barium swallow which confirmed that my esophagus to come to a point appearing like a birds beak. I have an idiomatic paralyzed esophagus. When I eat my esophagus doesn’t know how to relax anymore to allow food or beverages to go down. My doctor has referred me for a test where a feeding tube is placed through my nose and down into my stomach. It’s supposed to be only a 20 minute test while i am asked to drink and swallow while they record what is going on. But the only test that is available for me is to check for heartburn/ acid reflux. I do not have acid reflux as my food doesn’t get that far. My regurgitation tastes exactly the same going in as coming out. But the test they plan to do on me in all the way in May is the same type of tube gets inserted but have to keep in for 20 hours to measure my acidity in my stomach. Well I would rather heal myself from this autoimmune issue, then be forced to undertake the wrong test only to wait longer for a diagnosis and surgical treatment called the POEM. However we do not even have a doctor locally in our city/province who can perform this procedure. Looking for any and all assistance and suggestions to try. I am detoxing, cleansing both inside and out, and both physically, and mentally to help myself heal. I read that Phosphorus, Kali Carb, Lachesis, Alumina and Arsenic Album could possible help.
