Certainly you must immediately address the life threatening fluid retention that is associated with acute heart failure if you have reached a point that it threatens your life!
Your doctor actually doesn’t want to medicate your fluid retention until he/she absolutely has too. “Water Pills” make you pee off important vitamins and minerals so it really isn’t good for you.
The only reason your doctor would prescribe drugs for fluid retention is because the alternative is worse than the damage the drugs will cause. Heart failure is a serious diagnosis, so you must allow your health care team to stabilize your fragile state before you question the choices you face.
Remember oxygen IS a drug and it is also a vital nutrient!
Once you have achieved a stable balance it is time to realize that your situation didn’t happen over night and it won’t heal over night.
It’s time to take a look at what needs to change and change it!
“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food”
Did you know …..
Food REALLY IS medicine!
If you eat white bread, rice and potatoes start working at putting color in your diet.
You don’t need to diet, you need to eat good wholesome food!
So don’t think of this “change” as a diet!
Chris Downs, heart failure survivor and VIP Life Breath Club Member, is an avid green thumb! He knows how important organic foods are, but he was working himself to death despite his healthy meal planning.
When Chris learned how important it was for him to slow down and cultivate stillness, he stopped working long enough to become aware of his breath.
Chris gives credit to The Life Breath Club and “Your Sacred Breathing Hand Book” for giving him a new heart and getting him OFF the heart transplant list!
He considers Sacred Breathing to be highly effective congestive heart failure treatment!
Chris Downs would agree that “Your Sacred Breathing Hand Book” is the MOST important book you will ever read!
