Scream_I LOVE YOU
This is an excellent resource of information! There are so many things in here that the drs. didn't tell us about. #1 How herbal medications can interfere with the heart medication. #2 You only have some much cardiac reserve (energy) so rest is needed everyday. #3 Also diuretics also help liquid in your body circulate not just rid your body of excess liquid. I highly recommend this book!

I bought this for my wife who has postpartum cardiomyopathy so we could really understand what the cardiologist was saying and doing. Prior to reading it we had been concerned that our cardiologist wasn't engaging us in many "standard" heart failure treatments that we had researched which might improve her daily quality of life. This book really helped my wife and I understand all the CHF jargon and, most importantly, what the heart meds do and how they are supposed to work in the body. Because of this book and other research we have engaged another cardiologist for a second opinion and learned that there are indeed other treatments and therapies available to us. Net Net - this book helps you engage in knowledgeable conversations with your doctor which is key to your survival and successful treatment.
4 stars only because I wish the author had expounded more on some of the topics.

Excellent book for the layperson. Simply written for those without any high level knowledge of the human body or how the heart is constructed and functions. The doctors style of writing is easy to understand and absorb, and his apparent sincerity in wanting to help his patients seems to shine through, which I found helped me follow his advice with certain issues.

Helpful but a lot of unnecessary words and way outdated (1998). Wish I could find something similar written since 2015, at least.

My 37 year old son was just diagnosed w/CHF. Since he's never smoked, anything, never did any drugs & didn't abuse alcohol we were shocked w/the diagnosis. He was angry, depressed & couldn't believe myself or his doctors that you can live w/CHF. This book has helped him understand his illness & most importantly, given him hope.
Excellent book for people who are just diagnosed.

This is one of two books that every CHF patient should have and read. First chapter addresses the issue of anger, which has to be addressed, if you're going to live well. He also addresses all the issues in a fairly comprehensive way. Then when you've adjusted to having chf, and you're ready to actively work at getting your health back (and you can); buy SINATRA' s METABOLIC CARDIOLOGY. Take your meds, and buy and take the supplements Sinatra recommends---ribose, CoQ10, Carnitine, magnesium. Read his book for the forms of these supplements. I've had chf for nine years (50% of patients die within 1year of diagnosis, and most are deceased within 5 years) and as long as I take these supplements and my coreg, I do great. But with only the drugs, my quality of life is subsistence only. The supplements will cost you about $100 a month, but isn't living a rich and full life worth that?

My father is 88 years old and hates going to the doctor or showing weakness in any way. He went to the hospital for heart failure, even had a stroke while there & was released diagnosed with chronic heart failure/condition. It's difficult to tell him anything but I bought him this book and he loves it. Says it will help him survive longer and he found it easy to read and understand.
One of Dr. Silver's first statements in this book is the declaration that "Congestive Heart Failure" is a TERRIBLE name for this condition - one that causes anyone who receives this diagnosis to feel that he or she is bound to drop dead very soon, if not immediately. (I know that's how I felt; fortunately, I have a wonderful cardiologist who followed his announcement to me with instant reassurance that there were plenty of things to do to manage it, and even move toward better health.)

The entire book is written from a point of reasoned optimism (without a hint of condescension, pandering, or Pollyanna-like fantasies)... Yes; it is serious, and yes, there is plenty to be done to allow the decent expectation of a reasonable life for some time to come. The medical information is clear, concise, and understandable - the way you'd like all of your doctors to talk with you, all the time - and the way the good ones do, when they can take the time. There is plenty of information on the known causes of "CHF," the various manifestations, why certain protocols work, what to avoid, what different common medications do, and how they do it, and so on. It's a "quick read," and, IMHO, an inspiring one. This book does not blithely say there's "no problem;" it says there IS one, here's what it is, you can live with it, and here's how to do that.

There is also a glossary of medical terms included, and a substantial listing of available relevant websites and support groups. (And there are plenty of them out there!)

All in all, I am extremely grateful to Dr. Silver for having written this book. If you have been diagnosed with congestive heart failure, or know someone who has, grab this book right now.
