Household remedy against atheroma
Home remedies against atheroma can be used mainly when the atheroma is inflamed. If there is no inflammation, the home remedies do not bring any advantage, because the atheroma does not disappear through them. However, if there is an inflammation, home remedies can have a pain-relieving and anti-inflammatory effect and thus help the inflammation to heal.
Tea tree oil is an essential oil extracted from the Australian tea tree and has a strong antibacterial effect. In this sense it accelerates healing and reduces inflammation. However, Tea Tree Oil should not be used undiluted and not for several weeks at a time, as contact allergies may develop.
Aloe Vera Gel can also be used. It is said to stimulate the immune system and to contribute to the healing of wounds or in this case to the healing of the inflamed atheroma. In general, the benefit of home remedies is controversial and it is up to the patient to try to find out whether there is any relief.
In any case, however, a doctor should be consulted in the case of an inflamed atheroma in order to clarify whether he should additionally prescribe an antibiotic.
