First of all, welcome on this forum
Do you think your cardiologist would mind you using supplements to improve your health?
And could you find out if you can get the supplements by the makes of Solgar or Pharma Nord or Now?
I would appreciate it if you can answer the following questions. I know you already gave me some answers, but we always start by answering some questions so we get a more complete picture.
What is the cause of it, according to the cardiologist?
What is your EJF %, pump function?
How is your blood pressure, how high was it without medication and how high is it now?
Did they examine whether your veins (neck or groin) let enough blood flow?
Do you suffer with decomposition or swollen ankles?
Are there certain things at the moment you can’t do anymore?
Can you still climb the stairs for instance?
Or do you still do sports?
Do you suffer from allergies or have an intolerance to food or medicines?
Do you get tired quickly?
Do you eat a lot of sugar?
After some exertion , do you quickly get short of breath?
There is a special test you can do to see if you have a shortage of potassium, this is often a cause of the problem.
You can see if this is the case with you by eating dried apricots during the day. If you have cardiac arrhythmia and it gets less by eating the apricots then we can always proceed to taking potassium tablets.
I suggest that you start with 200mcg Chromium GFT, you can start this without a problem.
MSM, the final dosage is 3000 mg but we’ll build it up slowly, I suggest 500 mg for the first few days, If this goes well then 500 extra untill you are at the 3000 mg.
You have to build it up slowly because MSM detoxifies and it can cause headache, diarrhoea or tiredness.
Msm and chromium are not a part of the heart failure protocol but they are meant to give you more energy.
Furthermore I would like to advice you to start with acetyl L-Carnitine 3x 500 mg a day.
The link below gives you more info on L-Carnitine
