Heart Repair Tonic - McDowell's Herbal Treatments

The cardiovascular system consists of the heart, the lungs and two sets of vessels that run to all parts of your body, the arteries and the veins.


1. The arteries carry fresh oxygenated blood from the heart to feed all the cells of the body.

2. The veins pick up all the depleted blood which has exchanged its oxygen for the waste products of cell metabolism back through organs like the Kidneys, Liver and Spleen to clear out these waste products and return the purified blood to the heart.

Our lungs take up oxygen from the air we breathe into our red blood cells and this oxygen provides energy and life to every cell in our body. If we are not delivering enough oxygen to our cells we cannot oxidise impurities and maintain cell health and vitality and we suffer from a lack of energy and a build up of toxins in our system.

Oxygenation in turn depends on breathing deeply and efficiently, on the health of our blood vessels and cardio vascular system generally. It also depends on the quality of our red blood cells that in turn depends on the health of our bone marrow and spleen.

The heart is the organ that drives the arterial blood around the body and this unique organ never takes a rest. It beats regularly and strongly every day of our lives and its idea of a holiday is the break, of a fraction of a second, which it takes between each beat.

For a patient with a history of heart attack or heart disease or a condition which places an enormous strain on the heart like valve problems, prolonged high blood pressure or emphysema for example it is important to provide the heart with a tonic which will assist in repairing the organ as much as possible and provide it extra support so it may continue to support life.

For such patients I will provide all sorts of advice and explanation and other herbal medicines to address their other problems.

For the heart repair and support however the herbs I provide are; Parsley, Rosehips, Cactus, Hawthorne, Elecampane, Mugwort and Saw Palmetto along with the Bach Flower remedies Oak and Rescue Remedy.
