Heart disease: Is a nonspecific term that refers to conditions which impair the heart's ability to function. They include rhythm disturbances, structural disturbances, infectious disturbances, inflammatory disturbances, malignant processes, toxic processes and others.......We don't cure virtually anything, symptoms are many but chest pain and shortness of breath and weakness are fairly common.
