My cardiomyopathy is idiopathic, which means that they don’t know were it came from.
My kids are now 24 and 22 (I am 47 years old) so I don’t think it was caused by pregnancy
We are still searching. The rest of my body is quite healthy, blood pressure not to high, cholesterol is OK, my veins are good as I wrote you before and as far as I know I never had an heart attack. They do see small cicatrices at the back of my left ventricle, witch could be caused by an inflammation by an virus of bacteria’s.
At this moment we are concentrating ourselves in Lyme-disease (Borrelia bacteria). All my live I lived in an forest aria and many times I had to remove ticks! When you search in “Pubmed.com” there is many information about this.
However the supplements not only did their job in feeling better each time, also my heart is slowly recovering itself!
In the past two years the made 3 times an Echo:
1. 21-04-2004: dilatation LV/LA/RA (left ventricle an both atria) very bad systolic LVF and moderate RVF.
2. 01-12-2004 (I started in September with the supplements): dilatation LV/LA/RA
LVF. EF 20-25% The left ventricle was better than in April ’04. The Right ventricle was now light less instate of moderate less: better than in April
So everything was a bit better.
3. 11-11-2005: moderate dilatation LVF. EF 31%. The right ventricle is quit normal and everything gives an improvement! They did not mentioned the Atria any more!
So slowely my heart is getting better!:lol:
Of course there is much more to tell about these Echo’s. I can give you so many details because every time I ask a copy of the results so I can see for myself what the difference is!
My cardio log called this result amazing (we didn’t tell him about the supplements for we had bad experiences with one of his colleges, a woman that prefer to give me very bad medications in stet of bananas.
At the moment he tells us that the results are almost impossible, we start explaining him how we did this. Even then we do not expect much about it).
Arginine/ornithine is the two supplements together in one capsule. I have them from Solgar.
Your tachycardia, is this caused by speeding up your heart beat? I mean does your heart gets much quicker at that time and do you still feel that many times now?
I really can imagine that you get crazy sometimes with the kids around you, specially when you have your tachycardia!
For me the age your children have at this time was the most heavy period of my live, and no, I did not had a heart failure at that time!
In the same month they discovered my heart failure, I get two dogs, one puppy and one of 2 years, two Rottweilers! They give me the exercises I need so desperately.
Thanks to Willy we all have the possibility to get well again within a few years and that is much more than any doctor can tell me.
From the beginning I believed in it and slowly the prove is coming. It takes some discipline sometimes, but it is worth doing it.
