Studied Homeopathic Remedies
- Baryta carbonica
Most people don’t feel symptoms when their blood pressure is high, which is why hypertension is called the “silent killer.” In this case, what you don’t know can hurt you. Elevated blood pressure can lead to a greatly increased risk of heart attack, stroke, and many other serious illnesses. Along with high cholesterol and smoking, hypertension is one of the primary causes of atherosclerosis. In turn, atherosclerosis causes heart attacks, strokes, and other diseases of impaired circulation.
Note: High blood pressure, if not brought down with all deliberate speed, is a dangerous condition. Medical supervision is strongly advised.
Scientific Evaluations of Homeopathic Remedies for Hypertension
Researchers have completed two studies of homeopathic remedies for treating hypertension. However, neither study provided encouraging results.
Traditional Homeopathic Treatments for Hypertension
In classical homeopathy , there are many possible homeopathic treatments for hypertension, to be chosen based on various specific details of the person seeking treatment. Baryta carbonica is traditionally used for people with hypertension who are extremely shy, lack concentration, and often display immature behavior. The symptom picture of this remedy includes high blood pressure that is made worse by exertion or lying on the left side, along with a tendency toward gripping pains in the stomach that improve by the person lying on the stomach.
Aurum is often recommended for people whose high blood pressure is caused by slow-burning, long-term stress, often associated with career or ambition.
Lachesis may be used for a person with high blood pressure who has a flushed look to the face, overactive behavior, and a tendency for compulsive talking, as if an inner boiler were always about to explode.
