Last December, 2014 I was diagnosed with Viral Cardiomyopathy. I had shortness of breath when sleeping and walking. My BNP was over 400 and my EF was 25%. I was put on a number of high blood pressure medications including an ACE inhibitor, Beta Blocker, Digoxin and Diuretic. I started taking some supplements also in the beginning of 2015, but found this forum in May, 2015 and started following the protocol as outlined by Willie.
I have been using the full protocol now for about 4 months and recently had a blood test which showed my BNP is now down to 82!
This is a normal level and my doctor is astonished and doesn't really know what to say except to just keep doing what I'm doing! The BNP is one of the indicators for heart failure. I will have another echocardiogram test in another two months and see what my EF is, but it will probably be better also. I will report back when I get the results! I no longer have any shortness of breath either sleeping or exercising, walk every day, travel, and generally just feel good!
Other things I have been doing are interval exercise (4 minutes, 4 days/week) Ozone intravenous therapy (because it was viral), breathing exercises and focusing on gratitude and forgiveness.
I am indeed grateful for this forum and for Willie's excellent advice on supplements. Thanks so much and will let you know about more test results as they come in!
