Pharmaceuticals for the management of congestive heart failure have come a long way in recent decades, but they still don’t always work as well as you hope. In addition, these drugs sometimes come with side effects that can even worsen heart disease or its renal failure sequelae.
Herbal medicines target some of the same general mechanisms involved in congestive heart failure, but without the adverse effects. They can be easily combined with drug therapies to make them more effective, but if applied early enough in the disease process, may suffice on their own. This webinar will review some of the most important of these early interventions, illustrating their use with actual cases.
At the completion of this webinar participants will be able to list aspects of congestive heart failure that can be managed with herbs and supplements. They will also understand how drug and herb therapy can be integrated to manage congestive heart failure cases.
