Cardiologist Dr. Stephen Sinatra, MD inspired Dr. Myhill's initial work ("CFS is Low Output Heart Failure Secondary to Mitochondrial Failure") on mitochondrial failure. Dr. Sinatra recommends the same supplements for mitochondrial dysfunction in the heart as he recommends for chronic fatigue syndrome. All forms of cardiovascular disease--coronary artery disease, arrhythmias, congestive heart failure, and cardiomyopathy--respond to these supplements. Anyone with heart disease should not delay in obtaining Dr. Sinatra's book.
