In brief: Most likely no

Corrected would imply cured and even though diet (i.
e.: low salt, vitamin supplements and weight loss) can help, congestive heart failure (CHF) usually means there is significant underlying disease of the heart muscle and a cure is elusive. The outlook for someone with CHF has a lot to do with what caused the heart problem in the first place & treatment will almost always include medication.
