Angina Pain Natural Treatment, Remedies & Cures 



Go to angina causes and symptoms

Take one teaspoon of rose oil and mix it with two teaspoons of almond oil and rub on the chest two times daily as a natural treatment for angina pain.


Diet as Natural Treatment and Remedy for Angina Pain

As a natural remedy, angina pain can be reduced or eliminated by a low fat vegan diet.  Many people have done this.  Google Dr. John McDougall M.D. , Dr. Dean Ornish, M.D. and the Kushi Foundation.  Don’t let anyone talk you into a stint or bypass operation until you watch Dr. McDougall’s DVD titled Dr. McDougall Disputes Major Medical Treatments.  Bypass operations, statistically, do not increase your life expectancy one bit and cause permanent brain damage.  Doctors and hospitals that do these procedures just want your money.  


Mix one and1/2 cup of water with a teaspoon of boiled fenugreek seeds.  Strain the mixture and put in two teaspoons of honey.  Drink this two times daily.



Here is a good natural remedy for angina.  Whenever you experience an angina attack stop what you are doing.  Sit down or stand and lean your head back as far as possible.  Do this until the attack fades and the pain is greatly lessoned or has gone away.  At the sign of a sudden and rapid heartbeat, do this process.  It will usually work within a minute.  This action might save your life.


True angina is an actual heart problem and is very serious.  But if the pain is just pain and not a true angina situation; it may be caused by muscle tension in your back in the iliocostalis muscles that run down each individual side of your spine.  This type of muscle tension highlights what are termed ‘trigger points’.  These trigger points can mimick pain and symptoms of:  kidney stones, tumors, pleurisy, appendicitis, ligament tear, rib inflammation, and/or disc problems.  You can take a tennis ball and put in inside a long sock.  Then press your back against a wall and hold unto the sock and you can massage the muscles on your back.  There is a great book about this approach called “The Trigger Point Therapy Workbook” by Clair Davies. This is an effective natural treatment for angina.


CoQ10 as Natural Angina Treatment

CoQ10 or Coenzyme Q10 is found in all cells of the body and it is involved in the cell’s production of energy.  It has been shown in studies that 75% of people with angina have low CoQ10.  Taking a CoQ10 supplement can help reduce the frequency of angina attacks.  Also, cholesterol lowering statin drugs remove this enzyme from your body and the heart has a large concentration of CoQ10 – more than other parts of the body.  Muscles need it to function including the heart muscle.  The normal amount to take is 150 milligrams twice a day.  You can order it online at youngagain dot com. 


Try taking L-carnitine which is an amino acid that aids the heart muscle in using its limited oxygen supply more effectively.  Studies have been done that showed marked improvement in the ability of angina sufferers to exercise after taking this amino acid for 45 weeks.  The usual dose is 500 to 1,000 milligrams three times daily.


Hawthorn is an herb that has been used for heart problems for over a century.   The circulation of blood is increased by Hawthorn and this increases the oxygen available to the heart muscles.  It does this by dilating the blood vessels. 


If you are up and moving about when an angina attack occurs, sit down or lie down and rest for a few minutes.


Chinese Medicine

Chinese herbs for the Heart Yang 

Traditional Chinese Medicine sees the circulatory system and the pumping activity of the heart as the heart yang or “yang of the heart.”  The entire heart system encompasses the blood vessels (luo) and the tributaries to the blood vessels (jing luo).  Also included is the electrical energy which activates the heart so that it contracts properly (heart chi or often written as qi). A few useful herbs that will strengthen heart yang are salvia milthorizia (dan shen) and common cinnamon twig (gui zhi).

Chinese herbs for the Heart Yin

Shen resides in the heart.  The word Shen can be translated as spirit, mind or supreme being.  There must be a sufficient quantity of heart fluid (blood and heart yin) for Shen to be at ease in the heart.  When Shen feels comfortable in the heart, one feels centered and grounded and our actions are appropriate.  Herbs and foods that construct and maintain Heart Blood include sour dates (da zao) and longan fruit (long yan rou).

Insufficient heart yin or heart blood can cause Restless Shen which produces anxiety, irritability or insomnia. Also arising from this condition are irregular heartbeats (arrhythmia), rapid heartbeat (tachycardia), panic disorders and loss of concentration or memory.  Two good herbal mixtures for Heart Yin deficiency are Good Sleep and Worry Free Pill (shui de an) and Emperor’s Tea (Tian Huang Bu Xin Tang).  These can be taken together for increased benefit.  These herbal supplements should be used for a minimum of several months or as a daily supplement.
