My wife was diagnosed with congestive heart failure.
Since we started doing our traveling thing and camping we were able to cut her heart medication in half and it’s still getting better so far.
Hope this helps others as well. Don’t know if it’s the camping, the food we eat, the enjoyment, or what, but it’s working. Also cut her insulin by 6 units a day so far and is still getting better(even when she eats things she shouldn’t like cake, she doesn’t spike nearly as bad as she used to). Her feet swelling went away and the color came back to normal.
And yes her cardiologist approved the cutting of her medication.
I’ve gotten used to, when she isn’t feeling right to check her blood sugar and her blood pressure. Which is how I caught the need to cut the medications. (especially since the Dr tried to kill her).
