 Herbal Medicine: Angina Pectoris 
A clinical syndrome due to myocardial ischaemia characterizes by episodes of precordial discomfort or pressure, typically precipitated by exertion and relieved by rest or sublingual nitroglycerin.

This relatively common condition occurs when the work of the heart and thus myocardial oxygen demand exceeds the coronary arteries ability to supply oxygenated blood. The characteristic pain is caused by the resultant oxygen lack. The intermittent chest pain is usually precipitated by exercise, emotional stress, or other factors such as exposure to cold. Anginal pains are evidence of coronary insufficiency, since the coronary arteries are so narrowed by deposits or clots that the heart cannot receive sufficient blood to support its functions during periods of greater demand.

The phytotherapeutic approach to angina pectoris is similar to that for hypertension and arteriosclerosis. Please refer to those sections for more details.

Specific Remedies
Hawthorn can be considered the closest to a specific for this condition. If the reasons for this are unclear, please refer back to the earlier parts of this chapter.

One possible prescription

Hawthorn -- 3 parts
Motherwort -- 2 parts
Yarrow -- 1 part
Linden Blossom -- 1 part
Cramp Bark -- 1 part
Ginkgo -- 1 part
to 2.5ml of tincture combination 3 times a day
Garlic should be a regular part of the diet.
5 ml. of Hawthorn tincture can be taken at the first sign of an attack. This should not replace the use of allopathic medication initially.

Broader Context of Treatment
Similar issues must be addressed as those already covered, that is the whole panoply of dietary and life-style factors that contribute to an individuals unique life experience.
