This post was created to discuss natural remedies for mitral valve regurgitation for those who have been diagnosed a leaky mitral valve.
The most common reason people need surgery for mitral valve regurgitation or leakage is mitral valve prolapse (MVP). When the prolapse is significant enough, mitral regurgitation can be mild, moderate or severe. When severe enough, along with another factor such as atrial fibrillation or pulmonary hypertension, it is time to fix the valve.
I think we can slow down the leakage of the valve and push the surgical repair down the road. The future will all be catheter-based interventions. A healthier you will delay the need as technology advances.
Natural treatment options for mitral regurgitation.
Valve disease progresses with inflammation. Follow these steps to reduce inflammation.
- Eat organic and responsible Paleo. Grain (especially gluten), sugar, soy, and corn cause inflammation. Avoid them. Eat tons of veggies, nuts/seeds, avocado, and wild seafood.
- Get sunshine to your body and certainly your chest. Let the energy from the sun get into your chest and help the valve. Morning, noon, and afternoon sun all have different benefits.
- Get sleep. Sleep is a time of repair. The body will preserve the health of the valve better if it is rested and allowed recovery time. Sleep with the sundown and awake with the sunrise.
- Get adjusted. The brain and nervous system innervate every organ in the body including the valve and the organs (like the liver) that could lead to valve inflammation. Visit your doctor of chiropractic often. Don’t have a good chiropractor? Email us.
- Walk barefoot. Let the energy from the Earth keep blood flowing.
- Avoid chemicals. Valve disease is from inflammation and chemicals lead to inflammation. Skip the toxic laundry products, kitchen cleaners, and air fresheners.
- Stay well hydrated with quality water. We love the Pristine Hydro system. Pellegrino in glass too.
- Supplements- here are several options when it comes to keeping the valve healthy for a long as possible. I think “some” degree of reversal is possible. At least, let’s push surgery into the future as far as possible.
This is a BIG protocol, but all of them are important to your success.
MULTI – 2 caps 2x per day as a foundation to health and valve nutrient.
Daily Defense Protein Powder – 2 scoops per day for gut and liver health to stem the inflammation.
OMEGA DHA – 2 caps 2x per day. Keeps the valve “oiled” up and helps with inflammation
Super K – 1 cap 2x per day. Aggressive way to keep calcium in the bones and out of the valve.
Curcu Gold – 1 cap 2x per day. Tremendous anti-inflammatory.
Heart Beet – 1 teaspoon per day. Many benefits including natural blood thinner and nitric oxide supplement booster.
Superfood – 1 teaspoon per day day. Excellent for lipids and inflammation.
Berbe – 2 caps 2x per day. This is the do-everything supplement.
