Congestive Heart Failure Print

Congestive Heart Failure or CHF is a progressive condition that weakens the heart over time. CHF has many causes including coronary artery disease, damaged heart muscle (cardiomyopathy) due to disease or substance abuse, and co-existing conditions including diabetes, thyroid disease, kidney disease, and high blood pressure. Left unchecked, these can all lead to a serious cardiac event including heart attack and sudden death.

People with Heart Failure may experience:

  • shortness of breath
  • nocturnal awakening with breathlessness
  • persistent coughing or wheezing
  • buildup of excess fluid in body tissues; especially legs and abdomen
  • fatigue
  • lack of appetite
  • confusion, impaired thinking
  • increased heart rate
You may be surprised to learn that, there are alternative treatments you can add to complement your conventional Rx meds, including hormone therapy, nutritional supplementation and EDTA Chelation therapy. Professional grade supplements help make your body and heart muscle stronger, thereby reducing the risk of CHF. Products such as D-Ribose, and Coenzyme Q10 support a healthy weight, muscle recovery, and increase energy, strengthen the heart muscle, and boost the immune system. CoQ10 naturally decreases in our bodies, as we get older. Taking it as a supplement replaces what the body no longer produces. Statin medicines severely reduce CoQ10 levels which may further weaken the heart. Read more about CHF in the Treatment Plan, below.
