According to the Mayo clinic, heart failure "means your heart can't pump enough blood to meet your body's needs. Over time, conditions such as narrowed arteries in your heart (coronary artery disease) or high blood pressure gradually leave your heart too weak or stiff to fill and pump efficiently."
Cardiologist measure the heart using what they call the "infraction rate". Essentially, the pumping potential of a healthy heart is 55-75%, mine is 20% (up from 15%!). Because of this, my heart can't keep up, hence the crazy fluid leakage.
NOTE: I COULD NEVER HAVE HAD CANCER AND WOULD STILL HAVE DEVELOPED HEART FAILURE. THIS IS A COMPLETELY SEPARATE DISEASE I HAVE DEVELOPED!!
I say that for all the naysayers who will say now "if only she had done chemo" and shake their head. Well, if I had done chemo, I would be dead. My slowly deteriorating heart would surely have given out. And as far as cancer goes, my tumors continue to shrink and heal.
So what now? I have started some heart herbs, CoQ10 and Hawthorn Berry. I am drinking 8oz Limu juice, a seaweed that has proven to heal heart failure. I am doing some emotional work with the Healing Codes and Violet Flame. I have incorporated QiGong in for exercise and some arm exercises to strengthen my body. We are continuing our previous healing, getting really focused. I alternate between a green smoothie and superfood smoothie. Items include E3 Alive, Colostrum, Missessence Radical Berry, Bee Pollen, Raw Honey and Marine Phytoplankton. I have also been drinking MSM and D-Ribose, great for rebuilding hair, nails, and healing skin. I spend time visualizing my healing, talking to my angels and doing meditations. A good night's sleep is helpful for anyone. I KNOW I will heal, and in four months I will be vacationing in the Berkshires of Massachussetts at Kripalu, hanging out with my Spirit Goddess Gabrielle Bernstein and all my Spirit Junkie Sisters at Gabby's Loveatarian Retreat.
