Q: My friend is 34 and he has congestive heart failure. The doctor says his heart is bad, and he needs an LVAD- (left ventriclar assisted devise attached to his heart). He is curently taking the blood thinners lovenox and warfarin. He is a diabetic, and has high blood pressure. He has a mediport which include dovutamina, which helps the heart to pump. His heart is weak. His diet consist of meat and veggies. Should he have the lvad surgery which will lead to heart transplant? Should he keep his bad heart? The doctor says he could live up to 5 years with the surgery, and without it he only have months. What herbs or advise can you give him?
The article of the month for Dherbs.com September 2009 Newsletter is "Heart Problems" and will be up this week. It goes into much detail pertaining to your inquiry.
Q: My father (age 56 who's between healthy and sick. jogs every morning, but doesn't eat healthy) has pain traveling from knee, back to shoulder, I, myself am very health conscious! but I can't put my finger on this one! His (history) no high blood pressure, non-diabetic, no history of heart attics, stroke etc... but loves to eat sweets.. cakes, cookies, milk, ice cream, etc....I believe this could be a combination of many things, like yeast build up, gas, arteries clogged. Can you help me?
The best way to find out is have your father (or someone on his behalf) to schedule a health consultation so we can get at the root of the problem. While there could be a host of things causing the problem on the physical level, I'm more interested at getting at the emotional root of the problems. Product-wise, I would have your father start with the FULL BODY DETOX.
Q: I am currently on prescribed heart-related medications (coumadin, spironalactone, coreg, prinivil) due to heart surgery I had on 1990 (double bypass and aortic heart valve replacement). In your opinion is it okay/safe to do the FULL BODY DETOX while on prescribed medication? I am about 50 lbs. overweight and would like to cleanse my system In addition to losing some weight.
I HONESTLY DO NOT RECOMMEND THAT A PERSON TAKE BOTH DRUGS (POSION) AND HERBS SIMULTANEOUSLY. HERBS ARE CLEANSING AND WILL CLEANSE THE BODY OF POISONS AND DRUGS ARE POISON. DRUGS WILL NEVER HEAL HUMAN BEINGS. THE BIBLE TELLS US GOD CAUSED THE HERBS TO GROW FOR THE SERVICE OF MAN (PSALM 104:14) AND TO SERVE AS "MEDICINE" (EZEKIEL 47:12), AND TO SERVE AS HEALING FOR THE NATIONS (REVELATION 22:2). BUT TODAY WE ARE FOLLOWING MAN AND WONDER WHY WE DON'T HEAL. WE MUST RETURN TO GOD'S NATURE. THE DRUGS COULD BE MAKING YOU GAIN WEIGHT.
Q: I'm having pain in my chest near my heart, its like little bubbles of pain and I'm afraid it may be serious. It's sporatic, I'm 37 year old female. Could you tell me what this could possibly be and if there's anything natural I can take for it? Your advice is greatly appreciated. Sounds like Angina Pectoris (heart pain)!
Q: In December 2007, I was diagnosis with a blockage in the heart. I received two stents. Which specific regimen should I follow? a) The Arteriosclerosis or b) Heart Problems. Thanks!
First, perform the FULL BODY DETOX (FBD). After the FBD, take daily: CARDIO-VASCULAR FORMULA, CIRCUL-AID FORMULA, VEINS FORMULA You have to change your diet as well! Leave the meat and dairy products alone! Drink more water!
Q: MY HUSBAND HAD HEART FAILURE IN OCTOBER. HE IS DOING WELL WITH A VITAMIN REGIMEN HE IS ON...BUT SEEMS TO BE AT A STAND STILL AS FAR AS FURTHER IMPROVEMENT. WOULD YOU RECOMMEND THE CLEASNE FOR HIM ALSO? THEN PERHAPS SOME OF YOUR HEART FORMULAS?
For best results, have him perform the The Dherbs.com 10-Day Heart Cleanse, which is an effective, all-natural Cleanse that can help contribute to the maintenance, optimal health, and proper functioning of the heart.
Q: Hello... the doctor told my sister that my 1 year old nephew has a heart murmur and that they will check again in 3 months and if it does not go away they will have to proceed with medication etc. I told her not to give him any doctor prescribed medication but I was not able to find any information regarding heart murmurs in children on your website, please provide some insight. Thank you in advance.
Give the child HEARTY HEART TEA (sweetened with maple syrup and add lemon juice for zest) daily (1 cup or baby bottle) for the next 90 days and everything should be fine. I'm working on a heart article presently. One day I will have articles for every health malady. It just takes time typing, researching, and everything else I do. It's simply just not enough in the day. But it's coming. Please stay tuned to Dherbs.Com!
Q: I had a heart attack, Is the JACKRABBIT FORMULA safe for me to consume? Also what is best to do to prevent heart attacks?
Q: This past May my sister started to have really bad asthma attacks and allergic relations to scents, dust etc, and a horrible cough. She was told by her doctor that she had asthma and was put on asthma medication, inhalers, etc. the symptoms got worse, she couldn't sleep because she was up all night coughing, the claritin didn't work, etc. She had been complaining the past week of feeling bloated, her ankles being swollen, not being able to breath when she layed down, etc. She couldn't even walk from desk to desk at work. On the way home last week she went into the Emergency room and was admitted and stayed 4 days. We soon found out that she had congenital heart failure and only 25% of her heart is pumping properly. She couldn't breath because of the water build up on her lungs and heart. The doctors said that the build up of antibodies in her system showed that she had contracted EB virus some years ago and it permanently damaged her heart. She is limited to only 64 ounces of water a day, takes water pills, blood pressure pills, and is not allowed to eat foods high in sodium. My question is, is there any herbs or vitamins that can be used to help her heart? I do not want her to get a pace maker or have a heart transplant. The medications that she is on now make her so weak and drowsy. I know the doctors said the heart damage is permanent, but I just need to know is there anything else that would help naturally?
The heart failure is only permanent if you guys (especially your sister) BELIEVE so! What is believed is achieved! It's nothing but medical BS if you ask me!
To CURE her heart condition, I would suggest she:
1. Perform the Full Body Detox (absent any pharmaceutical drugs, but it is your sister's choice to stay on them or get off of them)
2. While on the FBD, drink 2-4 cups of Hawthorn Berry tea
Q: I have a fried who was told he has a heart murmur, and a small hole in his heart that is leaking. He needs to get surgery to get the whole closed up, or else it can get worst. He has severe chest pains, and his right shoulder hurts him constantly. They say it is because no blood is pumping to his arm at a steady rate because of his heart. He does not have health insurance and wants to avoid the medications and surgery. He has lost weight so what do you recommend? Full Body Detox? The only thing with that is it says you will lose 10-50 pounds he cant afford to losse to much weight. Could you explain? And would this help him a great deal? Also me personally would like to do the Full Body Detox just for overall health reasons and it seems to be a great cleanse. Im only 120 pounds will this make me loose a lot of weight? I cant afford it either. Please advise.
Please read the article "I'm Thin, Will I Lose Excess Weight During the Detox." Visit our articles section. You guys have nothing to worry about. You will only release weight if you NEED to do so.

Q: I have a friend that has a lot of fluid around his heart, and he hasn't gotten it checked out yet. It has been six months to a year, and he hasnt been to the doctor. I wanted to know is there any herbs that he can take to help him? I been trying to get him to go to the hospital, but he wont because of money issues. He does smoke weed, but Im not sure if thats a factor but at this point. Im scared for him, and want to help him. Could you help?
Simply have him perform the Full Body Detox, and drink our Hearty Heart Tea while detoxing.
Q: I feel I'm not in the best of healthy at the age of 34 but what is a good way to get myself and family healthy. My husband and I need to lose weight and get healthy this is the heaviest we both have been in our lives. We need your help and we want to start a family. What do you recommend please help!
I run a vegan health coaching program over Skype that you may be interested in. please check out the website at www.theveganeffect.com.
It is my philosophy that we shouldn't be losing weight to get healthy we should be getting healthy to lose weight. If losing weight is your focus it will be temporary but if you get healthy it will be permanent.
The best way to lose weight in a healthy way is to change nutrient density of your foods (eat more raw vegan low fat foods) and to do a full body detox or cleanse. You can see detoxing options at www.dherbs.com
Hope this helps,

Q: My husband was diagnosed with a heart murmur. He was prescribed Lisinapril & aspirin. After reading some info on your website, I shared with him how dangerous it was for him to continue taking the aspirin daily, and how instead of taking prescribed medicine, there may be an herbal supplement that he could take. So my question is...Is there an herbal supplement that he could take for his heart murmur?
But remember: his diet must also change - get off the meat and dairy products; eat more fruits and vegetables. Become healthier!
Q: Truth indeed. I just finished watching this youtube video, on mass control, fluoridation, and mercury poisoning. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?Feature=player_embedded). I wondered if there were any herbs, or natural rememdies that can counteract this? I am in my mid 30s, and feel as though I am going through alziehmers (growing forgetfulness, absent-mindedness, foggy thinking, ADHD, hypersensetivity to noises so as to find it almost impossible to concentrate). I have my "Back to Eden" Book, I will continue digging for answers there too.
Don't look for answers or solutions primarily from sources outside of the body. There are herbs, but first use your mind. Mental healing! will your healing into fruition. Good herbs that will assist include Gingko Biloba, Ginseng (all types), and Gotu Kola. Dherbs.com Brain Tuner, CNS, and Ethereal Bliss are also helpful for your condition.
Q: I have heart palpitations especially after I eat a meal regardless to what it is. Do you have any advice for this malady?
Eat more raw foods (preferably vegetables which are alkaline). The CARDIO-VASCULAR FORMULA would be ideal to take before or after eating your meals.
Q: I ordered the JACKRABBIT FORMULA for my Dad who takes Amiodarone for an irregular heart beat. Is this safe for him to take? He's 74 years old.
OUR HERBS ARE SAFE TO TAKE FOR ANY DISORDER AS LONG AS A PERSON WILL NOT TAKE OUR HERBS WITH DRUGS (MEDICATION).
Q: I just received the Heart cleanse that I ordered, and would like to know the expected weight loss from it?
A: Thank you for contacting us. The 10 Day Heart Cleanse can potentially help with weight loss due to the diet that it requires you to keep while cleansing. You can lose anywhere from 5-10 pounds doing the Cleanse.
Q: I am having difficulty urinating, I am overweight, bad health, heart conditions, torn quad in right knee. I am starting a physical therapy program as I email you. Two questions, will I need doctors permission to start taking a herbal program. And which one do you recommend to start.
Q: I have a circulation problem from a leg injury and heart problem. My ankles are turning black.
Q: I've really been suffering with some anxiety issues and was looking at the symptoms of an overactive thyroid, which seem to be most of my symptoms. I was also about to have sexual relations with my girl for the first time and my body just started heating up like I had a fever, and the anxiety hit me like a bomb. I had taken the JACKRABBIT FORMULA, but it felt like the Yohimbe had my heart racing and I couldn't maintain an erection anymore do to nervousness of failure. I also get sweaty palms and feet a lot. My heart starts racing sometimes just out the blue. Could this be an overactive thyroid? Do you have any other suggestions of what could be going on?
It could be an over-active thyroid gland, Beloved! It could also be psycho-somatic. I think the Jackrabbit also played a role in your sweating situation too due to certain "warming" herbs. Learn yoga and meditation, Beloved. It's all in the mind, Good brother. The keys to life are in the mind. Check out our new e-book MENTAL SCIENCE MANUAL.
