Although heart disease was once thought to be caused solely by diet, lifestyle or genes, strong evidence now links infectious agents to heart disease with some research saying that 80% of HD is linked to infections primarily the bacteria Chlamydia pneumoniae, cytomegalovirus, h. pylori and herpes. Once nutritional deficiencies have compromised the  body, it is easy for infections to set up housekeeping in  the body. The key to resolving heart concerns are: rebuild the body’s nutrient bank, and clearing the infections.
