Heart Failure in TCM
With the type of Chinese medicine, it is more focused on trying to do a tailored-made diagnosis. In traditional Chinese medicine, the doctors do not just categorize it as a kind of disease; we try to figure out exactly what type of syndrome (cause of disease) it is. Therefore, syndrome differentiation is a MUST in TCM diagnosis. With the right diagnosis, TCM doctor can be able to suit the remedy to the case. This is one of the characteristic of TCM treatment.

TCM Treatment for heart failureTCM Perspective On Heart Failure
Practitioners of Chinese medicine believes that heart failures are results of chronic fatigue of qi. As the qi weakens, the heart pumps weaker and the blood is circulated less to the body and retaining more body fluids. In Chinese's view, fluid is Moisture. Moisture is regulated by the Kidneys. To treat congestive heart failure using Chinese medicine, practitioners prescribe herbs such as ginseng root, astragalus root, salvia root, angelica root, cinnamon bark, and licorice root.

Western Point of View
Heart failure, sometimes known as congestive heart failure, occurs when your heart muscle doesn't pump blood as well as it should. Certain conditions, such as narrowed arteries in your heart (coronary artery disease) or high blood pressure, gradually leave your heart too weak or stiff to fill and pump efficiently.

Not all conditions that lead to heart failure can be reversed, but treatments can improve the signs and symptoms of heart failure and help you live longer. Lifestyle changes - such as exercising, reducing salt in your diet, managing stress and losing weight - can improve your quality of life. One way to prevent heart failure is to control conditions that cause heart failure, such as coronary artery disease, high blood pressure, diabetes or obesity.

Special Hints for Your Diet in TCM
Traditional Chinese medicine is a fantastic art of healing. TCM doctors use not only herbal medicines for treating diseases, but also they pay close attention to the patient's diet. In TCM, it's required that a patient should have a proper diet during the whole course of treatment. A perfect TCM prescription together with a proper diet can make you recover from the disease as soon as possible. Following is our suggestions on your diet.
Foods fit to eat
1. People with heart failure often retain fluid, which can require the heart to work harder. When this happens your doctor may recommend limiting your intake of fluids. (Some also prescribe diuretics or "water pills" to get rid of extra water.)

2. Talk to your doctor about how much liquid you should have a day. That includes not only water, but also juice, ice cubes, coffee, tea, and soup. Some foods with high water content, such as ice cream, yogurt, and fruit, may also count toward your daily total.
Foods unfit to eat
1. Don't add salt when you cook
2. Look for low-sodium versions of foods you like
3. Eat brown or plain white rice instead of flavored rice
4. As you restock your shelves, replace high-sodium soups, cereals, butter and other items with low-sodium versions
5. Check your medicine cabinet for headache and heartburn medicines that contain sodium carbonate or bicarbonate
6. Avoid prepared mixes, ham, bacon, sausage, salted nuts and snacks, salad dressing, salty seasonings, and fast food
