My husband had a couple of heart attacks about 8 years ago, he had 3 stents put in and
was doing fine. The Dr. started giving him Echocardiograms for his heart function and it was 45% for a long time until January of this year, it went down to 30% and then in May (this month) it was 35%. They are talking about a defibrillator and he has to go back in 3 months (August). Do you think the protocol would help with heart failure? I have been reading and do not see any mention of helping heart failure. I really want to do something to help him.
Based on his history, Vitamin C and lysine couldn't hurt, but may not help him overcome his current heart failure. On the other hand, in Europe - CoQ10 is considered a cure/treatment for heart failure (heart failure is considered a CoQ10 deficiency.) The statin cholesterol lowering drugs, for example, deplete the body of CoQ10 and the incidence of heart failure has at least tripled since these drugs have been prescribed.
I would think that your husband would be wise to also add at least 600 mg of CoQ10 daily, along with magnesium, taurine, etc. 1200 mg CoQ10 would be even better, but it is not how much CoQ10 is ingested - it is how much is absorbed, and according to Dr. Sinatra (CoQ10 expert) you must take CoQ10 with fats to make sure there is bile in the digestive tract.
