No but...: Time will usually cure it if you don't mind putting up with chest pain while you're waiting. Meanwhile, ibuprofen, naproxen, Colchicine and, if necessary, Prednisone are highly effective at relieving symptoms.

Not sure there is: Inflammation of the sac around the heart is called pericarditis. It can be caused by an infection , trauma , cancer , or after a heart attack. Usually nonsteroidals like Motrin in high doses are given . Rarely corticosteroids are given. Some evidence that Colchicine may be helpful in chronic inflammation. Hypothyroidism autoimmune dz also need r/o. No natural med i know of effectively treats this.
