Modern cardiological therapy can prevent and treat several cardio-circulatory pathologies, via pharmacology and surgery. However, more and more patients manifest hyper-sensitivities or allergies to drugs, and others do not respond to therapies specified by guidelines. In these situations, the wise use of the plants available in Nature could become an excellent instrument to treat cardiological patients. Phytotherapy and homeopathy thus acquire a fundamental role, in particular if ancient tradition meets modern trials of clinical experimentation: in this way it is possible to prescribe a remedy specific for the patient and suited to his psycho-physical constitution. Homeopathy becomes useful when efficacious but toxic plants are used, since the dilution of the phytotherapic remedy removes the toxicity. However, it is paramount a correct constitutional and etiological evaluation of the treated patient to avoid adverse effects.
