Natural solutions for myocarditis

Nick's Story

"I suffered a viral attack on my heart in May 2014 called Myocarditis. After a week in hospital, many drugs, MRI etc. I was told that the virus had not damaged the heart but I was left with inflammation around the muscle of the heart. I was prescribed to take 4 ibuprofen tablets 3 times a day, 2 paracetamol 3 times a day and gout tablet. I was advised to continue to take the tablets until I felt well enough to stop taking them. The cardiologist gave me the impression I would recover quickly.

The viral attack leaves inflammation around the heart, which leaves you unable to take part in any sports activities. It reduces you to a very slow pace of walking and gives you a constant aching pain in the chest. It often gives you a burning sensation as if stoked through the chest and out of your back. The lack of physical activity and ability is quite shocking.

In September 2014, on a follow-up appointment, I was no further forward with no improvement to my health and I was dependant on the over the counter tablets and gout tablet to relieve the constant aches and pains.

The cardiologist was surprised I was not any better and after a second MRI the results concluded that I had made little improvement and recommended doubling the recommended daily dosage! He suggested a 10x dosage of Anadin 3 times a day as he was at a loss as what else he could suggest to improve my situation. I only managed to take two of these tablets as it increased the pain tenfold. So I just continued with the previous tablets.

February 2016 I decided that I should not continue to take the high dosage of ibuprofen and that I should try to reduce the amount I was taking. This presented a problem as I was now dependant on them as I soon found out. Out of the 12 ibuprofen a day I was taking, I tried to drop just one tablet a day per week. I would get so low from this and it would create, what some would call a cotton wool head, struggling to think properly and have negative thoughts. I had become addicted to the ibuprofen. It would take about 2 weeks for me to feel normal again and I began to dread dropping another tablet, as I knew what I would have to go through.

It was at this point that I decided to try alternative therapies. I saw an acupuncturist and she said that my body was full of inflammation. She recommended a Paleo diet to reduce the inflammation. She also put me in touch with Kevin from The Naked Pharmacy.

When I contacted Kevin at the Naked Pharmacy, he could not have been more helpful. We had a half hour telephone consultation where I was able to tell him all about my case.

Kevin recommended I take his supplements for two weeks. After the two weeks period I was able to stop all over the counter and prescription drugs in one go with no withdrawal side effects. This really did prove to me that the supplements worked. 

A year later I have now been able to take up jogging again and can do most types of physical exercise. I very rarely have pain (only when I forget to take the naked pharmacy tablets!) My mental health has greatly improved and on the whole I feel back to normal. What is so wonderful about the naked pharmacy products is that they work and they have no side effects. These tablets really have changed my life. 

I have also recommended Saffrosun to friends who now also swear by them. In one case, her partner had bi-polar tendencies but refused to go on any medication. He is now taking Saffrosun and she has really noticed a difference in him. The Naked Pharmacy products really do work.”
