Angina, angina pectoris and cardiac angina.
Angina (from the Latin angina or angor pectoris, meaning "a strangling feeling in the chest"), is a cardiac symptom characterized by chest pain caused by oxygen deprivation in the heart muscle. It is most often due to reduced blood flow to the coronary artery (i.e. coronary stenosis). This lack of oxygen to the heart is called myocardial ischemia.
From a naturopathic perspective, angina is a sign of a weakened heart muscle and a lack of oxygen, which can either be a cause or an effect.
Avoid simple sugars and saturated fats. Make sure your lunch and dinner consist of 50% to 60% vegetables.
