Maybe: Stem cells are providing some exciting new hope in treating heart failure as well as other medical conditions. Their use is still highly experimental and much research needs to be done before this procedure is ready for prime time. Time will tell.

Maybe: There are several promising studies using stem cells for a variety of conditions. New, high tech treatments get a lot of coverage on the news, but we are still probably years away from seeing this in the cardiologists’ office.

there is a way to increase your own stem cell production through nutritional supplement by 70% and another new product I have recently found that reduce oxidative stress levels to the level of 20 year old may be very helpful as well for many diseases

CHF: We have much more effective CHF therapy than in the 70's. On the other hand we don't really cure congestive heart failure unless a curable cause is present and that is most often not the case. Having said that people with CHF do much better now than they did 20years ago and we continue to improve.
