Information on Heart, weak

DescriptionThis condition is related to congestive heart failure. A weak heart can either be associated with genetic factors, heart muscle damage, nerve weakness, smoking, and/or old age.
Treatment PlanDoctors often prescribe digoxin or other digitalis-like drugs to stimulate the heart muscle. However, an herbal approach using heart-stimulating whole plant extracts in combination with the much milder heart tonic hawthorn is preferred. This regime seems to cause much fewer side effects. Heart tonics are often recommended by herbalists and can be given in conjunction with pharmaceuticals in many cases. Be sure to consult with your doctor, herbalist or other qualified health-care practitioner first.
