A member asked:

How to treat stress cardiomyopathy "broken heart syndrome"?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

With compassion: The best thing to help relieve a "broken heart syndrome" is the presence of a compassionate person. It's important to seek out a psychotherapist with expertise in grief counseling. If the problem occurred because of physical stress, counseling is still very much indicated, particularly with someone trained in mind-body medicine.
