In brief: ?cure?

Your only cure for leaky valves is replacement with new ones.
Since this would require major surgery and risk, it is not done when things are mild. If or when the leaks lead to some other heart issues, they would usually be managed with medication.

This is very good advice. This situation is very common and usual trivial.
