Viruses Can Cause Heart Problems

David Brownstein, M.D. By Tuesday, 09 April 2024 04:33 PM EDT Current | Bio | Archive

Viruses are a well-known cause of heart problems, including heart failure. Any viral illness or any other illness that causes an increase in body temperature leads to excess stress on the heart.

SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, has been shown to cause heart problems such as myocarditis and pericarditis. These illnesses can lead to a diagnosis of heart failure.

Unfortunately, the vaccines for COVID-19 are also associated with increased risk for myocarditis and pericarditis.

Other viruses that can cause heart failure include influenza viruses, coxsackie, Epstein-Barr, cytomegalovirus, herpes viruses, and HIV.

Congestive heart failure is increasing at rates far faster than the aging of our population can explain. I believe we use far too many unnecessary medications, including statins, which is leading to this increase.

More information about statins can be found in my book, The Statin Disaster.

Americans are not a healthy population. Simply put, we are too heavy, take too many prescription and over-the-counter medications, and do not exercise enough. If we ate a healthier diet, exercised daily, and corrected nutritional and hormonal deficiencies, we could reverse the rising rate of heart disease along with other serious chronic illnesses such as diabetes and hypertension.

I see the results of following a holistic lifestyle in my patients on a daily basis. My best suggestion is to find a holistic healthcare provider who can help you achieve your optimal health.
