There are homeopathic remedies used for treatment of cardiovascular pathology. One of them is Amylenum nitrosum – a small remedy with prominent rapid action on the arteries and capillaries. It is found curable in cases of hypertension, threatening heart attack, angina pectoris, chronic goitre and violent heart palpitations. The remedy has cured heavy congestive headache with throbbing and vertigo, and convulsions with shrilling cry. Bellow are listed those signs, which in a patient lead unmistakably to the prescription of Amylenum nitrosum, irrespectively of the specific diagnosis.
Kalmia is important homeopathic remedy, used in heart disease which alternates with rheumatism or has developed out from rheumatism. The plant from which the remedy was prepared is a representative of the Ericaceae family, together with Ledum palustre and Rhododendrom chrysanthum.
The one very characteristic peculiarity of Kalmia is the wandering shifting complaints. The symptoms of the disease are constantly moving from one place to another, from one system to another; and the mind is corresponding with inability for concentration, irritability and wandering thoughts.
“While this remedy is not as frequently indicated as Digitalis, if there is any reason why Digitalis cannot be taken, Strophanthus should be studied.”
A.L. Blackwood, Diseases of the Heart
“There are no ‘substitutes’ for Digitalis, for its action is characteristic and unique, and in homeopathic form it is as innocent as it is powerful. Other heart-poisons may be discovered, but they cannot take the place of Digitalis.”
Dr. John H. Clarke, Diseases of the Heart Arteries
“Crataegus is the nearest approach to a positive heart tonic that I know of. It has produced some heart symptoms and has, doubtless, a homeopathic relation, but it is not a heart-poison like Digitalis and has no cumulative action.”
Dr. John H. Clarke, Dictionary of Homeopathic Materia Medica
