Mending a Broken Heart: Reimagined Naturopathic Advantages to Heart Failure

As little as 5 years ago, heart failure patients were relegated to a slow death. The best conventional medicine could do is hope to delay it, the best naturopathic medicine could do was stabilize it or delay death a little more than our conventional colleagues. Reversing was a rare occurrence. Now there is a new generation of drugs, devices, and holistic treatments that when used effectively and with intelligence may reverse a weakened heart with reliability. It’s exciting times in cardiology with optimism due to new approaches to congestive heart failure.
