In brief: Absolutely
The only thing that keeps the body from rejecting a new heart is your immunosuppressives (anti-rejection meds).
Do not ever fail to take them as directed. There is no holistic, homeopathic, dietary, naturalistic [etc] alternative. Failure to take your drugs correctly will result in a waste of both the recipient's life as well as the donor's gift. :(.
