Can I help my Dad heal his heart w/ nutrient supplements--his heart is at 30%, arteries are like porcelain

by Gretta

Can I help my Dad heal? He has sufferred multiple heart attacks and undergone heart surgeries-- from having congestive heart failure and not knowing. His heart function is at 30%. His arteries are like porcelain. If he were given Vitamin D (along w/ Carnitine, Selenium, Magnesium, and Coenzyme-Q10) would that help his system absorb the Calcium thats clogging his arteries? At the least, his heart would be able to utilize the Calcium it needs, right? Thank you so much for your time!!

I don't know

Your question is FAR FAR too complex for me to answer. I have zero idea if your dad can heal using nutrients at this or any stage of his disease.

Are there studies showing that these nutrients help many people in many cases? Does the weight of evidence show that these nutrients are useful. Yep, that's why I outline all of these studies. Will they help your dad. How could I possibly know that? Will he even take them? Or does he think that it's crazy and will only listen to his doctor?

There are literally thousands of factors involved in whether or not he might be helped, including whether he even wants to take such things. They are not miracles, they are nutrients. Reversing long-standing nutrient deficiencies isn't just about taking a pill, but about changing lifestyle. And it takes time and dedication. Is he going to take the nutrients, but still eat pasta and ice cream? Then they probably won't help.

Also reversing long-standing disease is possible, but can HE reverse HIS? I have no idea. Is he willing to try? What does he have to lose? Could it even make him worse? Possibly. Who knows? I can't know that.

I get that you are concerned about your dad and want him to get better, but there is no possible way for me or anyone else to answer such questions. I would need omniscence to know such things.

I hate answering a question the way that I did, and I'm not attempting to be 'snarky' or disrespectful, but I'm not sure how to answer an unanswerable question.
