Heart Failure, Infection, & a Medical Brick Wall
What I Did to Save My Father’s Life–The First Time.
My father developed end-stage heart failure in his early 60’s, despite decades of top cardiology care. They said heart transplant was his only hope—They were wrong. Treating an overlooked infection permanently fixed his heart, averting the need for heart transplant. He passed away on 5/9/2021, 1 year ago today, at almost 90, may he rest in peace. This work is dedicated to my Dad. May it save someone you love.
Heart failure is the heart’s inability to ably pump blood. When the heart muscle chronically weakens, it’s called cardiomyopathy. Myocarditis describes acute inflammation of the heart—Sometimes also causing heart failure.
A major cause of disability and death, the many causes of cardiomyopathy include coronary artery disease, hypertension, and diabetes. But up to 50% of cases (75% when it’s in kids!) are “idiopathic,” of unknown origin. I dislike that word. It makes me feel like the medical profession is trying to compensate for its ignorance by using a lofty Latin-derived term to …

Well, that’s true in a sense because infections cause immune issues.
To sum it up best I will repeat what Dr. Hoffman (RIP) one of the most experienced WI LLMD’s told me on the issue:
If you treat the infection(s), most if not all symptoms just disappear.
This has certainly been the case for myself, my husband, and thousands of others, but this simple, logical fact is completely ignored by mainstream medicine and current scientific inquiry. It’s sad that we are still dealing with an issue Polly Murray writes about in the 70’s in “The Widening Circle,” a story about a woman’s observation of severe illness in her entire family and the Connecticut area in which they lived.
