Herbal Remedies for Heart Attack

Herbs are useful to help prevent heart attacks, and to heal after an attack.

Hawthorn berries regulate, heal, repair and soothe the heart. 
Pour 1 cup of boiling water over 1 tsp. of hawthorn blossoms, steep for five to ten minutes, strain and take 2-3 cups daily for a month.
Or, take 10 drops extract in liquid twice daily, or take 1 tsp. of tincture three times daily.

Ginkgo biloba increases the blood supply to the brain, prevents accumulation of blood platelets and controls angina. 
Take 20 drops of tincture three times daily. Take two 40 mg capsules of 24% standardized extract.
Note: If you take prescription blood-thinning medication, consult your health care provider before using ginkgo. 

Ginger has a tonic effect on the heart, lowers cholesterol and inhibits blood platelet collection. 
Make a fresh ginger infusion using 2 slices of fresh root per cup of water.

Soak 1/2 tsp. of herb in 1 cup of water for twelve hours. Strain and drink three cups daily.
