General Information, or information pertaining to more than one type of heart condition.


Nutritional Info on Managing Heart Disease

(Excellent article on the different types of heart diease and supplements that have been shown to help.)

Oxidative Stress in Heart Disease:

General Info about Managing CHF:
http://bigheartsfund.org/information/congestive-heart-failure/
(Note: CHF is an end result of heart disease. Individuals can live a very long time with different diseases of the heart before entering CHF, which is usually diagnosed via xray.)

(Note, in cases where the tendons in the heart may be deteriorating, you do not want to strengthen the contractions too much.)
