By    |   Saturday, 12 September 2015 01:21 PM EDT

If you’ve been diagnosed with angina and you’re experiencing regular chest pain, there are several natural remedies you can administer if don’t want to take side effect-heavy drugs.

However, experts recommend that you shouldn’t self-treat angina and other heart diseases but you should see a doctor for your treatment options.

ALERT: 4 Things You'll Feel Before a Heart Attack

First, most doctors recommend healthier lifestyle changes, which are always the safest natural remedies. According to the Mayo Clinic, those changes usually include:

  1. Exercise
  2. Smoking cessation, and avoidance of secondhand smoke
  3. Better diet, with whole grains, fruits and vegetables, and lean proteins
  4. Relaxation techniques
  5. Avoiding overexertion

Even if your condition forces the need to take medication or undergo a procedure, committing to these lifestyle changes will create better long-term outcomes.

According to the advice of Dr. Andrew Weil of Weil Lifestyle, “Although these drugs can relieve the symptoms, they don't alter the underlying problem. … [Surgical] interventions are very expensive, drastic procedures that may provide temporary relief but do not halt progression of disease. … Lifestyle changes can help reverse the coronary artery insufficiency that leads to angina.”

If you’re looking for natural remedies for your chest pain in addition to these lifestyle changes, CVS pharmacy recommends these supplements, based on clinical trials:
  1. Terminalia arjuna, an herb that has been shown to improve heart function
  2. Coenzyme Q10(CoQ10), an antioxidant that has been used to treat congestive heart failure
  3. Omega-3 fatty acids, found in fish oil, have been known to reduce triglycerides and lower cholesterol, which can have a positive impact on blood flow. The best source of these omega-3s comes from eating fish, as the effectiveness of the pill form of fish oil is the subject of great debate.

In addition to these supplements, Dr. Weil also recommends:
  1. Hawthorn, an herb that has also shown to improve blood circulation
  2. L-carnitine, an amino acid that boosts the heart’s metabolic efficiency, which can reduce chest pain by requiring less exertion
