Omega-3 EPA: Treatment for a Heart Condition

.

It later became apparent that the blind spots and murmur were linked, since doctors discovered a problem with a valve in her heart, which had caused a blood clot. The clot had broken up and a part of it had settled on Roxana's optic nerve, and eventually led to a black spot which appeared intermittently in her vision. Unsure as to whether the clot had travelled elsewhere in the body, experts were concerned and so Roxana underwent further checks, including a brain scan to see if the clot had travelled to her brain, in order to rule out the possibility of a potentially fatal aneurysm.

Fortunately Roxana's scan was clear, although her heart valve had suffered irreparable damage. The exact condition is known as stenosis of the mitral valve, whereby the valve is both narrowed and unable to close properly. Although it has no immediate effect on health, eventually mitral valve stenosis can cause irregular heartbeats and possibly heart failure or other complications, including stroke, heart infection, pulmonary edema, and blood clots. Roxana would face the ongoing risk that a clot could form again. At the young age of 12 she was told that she would need a life-long course of penicillin (to prevent a relapse of the throat infection which brought on rheumatic fever) and aspirin (to thin the blood).

Troubled at the idea of the associated risks of long-term reliance upon these drugs, Jav and his wife researched alternatives - including the use of a Harley Street naturopath - in a bid to do as much as they could to strengthen Roxana's heart and prevent further complications.

What now seems a tremendous bout of fate, Jav happened upon a friend who referred him to a doctor (now professor) at Hammersmith hospital, namely Dr Basant Puri. Then researching into the effects of cod liver oil, Dr Puri recommended that the omega-3s within the oil would thin the blood, helping the blood cells to be more flexible and less prone to clotting.
