Introduction: Mitral valve stenosis is a narrowing of the heart's mitral valve.
Purpose: The aim of this study is to demonstrate that energy alterations may be linked to dyspnea in patients with mitral valve stenosis.
Methodology: The methodology used was a case report of a patient who had symptoms of shortness of breath and arrhythmia attacks on a daily basis. Mitral stenosis was diagnosed and surgical intervention to correct the valve obstruction was indicated. However, as the patient was debilitated, the first treatment with ancient medical tools was prescribed to help with the symptoms of abdominal pain, anxiety, and insomnia. In the clinical evaluation by the traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) physician, she was diagnosed with Blood, Yin, Yang, and Qi deficiency. Treatment was started with 1. Chinese dietary counseling, 2. Twice-a-week acupuncture and moxibustion sessions 3. Chakras measurement 4. Homeopathic according to the theory of the author entitled Constitutional Homeopathy of the Five Elements based on Traditional Chinese Medicine and crystal-based medications.
Findings: The patient improved her dyspnea symptoms with the treatment done, without the necessity of performing the surgery to correct the mitral valve stenosis.
Conclusion: Dyspnea symptoms in patients with mitral valve stenosis may not be linked with the stenosis itself, but associated with energy alterations in the chakra’s energy centers. In the case of the patient in the case report, all chakras energy centers were depleted. The surgery for replacement of the mitral valve, in this case, would not improve the dyspnea, because the dyspnea had an energy related cause. Looking at the patient as a whole and not only considering the anatomical alteration found, it is fundamental to have success in the treatment of this patient.
