I have no idea what is going on with your heart, but I think you should get it evaluated.
My wife works in an ER, and is part of a team of people who save lives everyday. I think there is definitely a place for alternative treatments, especially for prevention, or for low level things. But when things get really serious, serious treatment is needed, and yes, sometimes that can get into life or death situations. I would hate to see someone lose a child, or have a child suffer permanent damage because they delayed appropriate treatment. I see people posting...
There is no cure for type 1 diabetes with diet only. Type 1 means she produces no insulin, insulin is required to get glucose to the cells that need it. I think some good books on diabetes, but especially some healthy diet books would be most helpful and healthful!

The real problem with extreme fevers is the high chance that it is a symptom of severe bacterial infection. It is also likely that it's viral, but the difference between SBI and viral is huge and definitely demands...
