Crateagus oxycantha (Hawthorn) is a highly respected herb and has well-known cardio-protective properties. Hawthorn works by dilating blood vessels, thereby increasing the heart's energy supply and improving its pumping ability and does this by blocking the action of a blood constricting enzyme called ACE (angiotensin-converting enzyme). The anti-oxidant properties of hawthorn also help to protect against damage caused by plaque build-up in the coronary arteries.
Arnica montana (D3), used internally, is very effective for the treatment of senile heart, angina, or coronary artery disease as well as for internal healing after surgery.
Kalium Phosphate (C6) (Kali. phos.) is a biochemic tissue salt with many therapeutic benefits. For pets that suffer from heart complaints, regular use of Kali. phos. can help to alleviate heart palpitations, irregular heart beat, high blood pressure and dizziness and promote healthy blood flow to the brain. This tissue salt is also extremely useful for the relief of anxiety and emotional tension often associated with heart conditions.
Calcium fluoride (C6) (Calc. flour.): is another biochemic tissue salt which has excellent toning properties, helping to improve the strength, flexibility and elasticity of all body tissue, including the veins and arteries of the circulatory system.
