Heart Attack – HOMEOPATHIC APPROACH
The basic approach in Homeopathy is to evaluate the disease of CHD in its whole extent, that is giving consideration and value to all the symptoms which might be inter related to one another and characterizing a case as an individual. A lot of emphasis is given to the patient as a whole besides minutely studying various aspects of CHD. There is no single specific remedy for all the cases of CHD, therefore it becomes important to individualize each and every case. By timely management and homeopathic treatment CHD can be effectively controlled.
