how are roses used during heart failure?

Hawthorn: I assume you are talking about a herbal treatment. Hawthorn. A member of the rose family, has been touted as helping heart failure. There are many claims related to natural products, such as plants being useful in various diseases. In most cases there is little if any proof of their effectiveness. So i certainly would not recommend this and certainly would not replace proven treatments.
