echocardiogram interpretation (Wife is 69, 5 ft 3, 145 lbs)

My wife just had an echocardiogram and we didn't get allot of information on how we get treat the results with nutritional treatments.  Exam indication was TR/MR/LAE/PULM HTN.  Conclusions were;  1. Overall left ventricular function normal EF 55-60%.  2. Left ventricul mildly dilated  3. The diastolic filling pattern is normal  4.  The left atrium is moderately dilated  5. The right ventricul is mildly enlarged  6. Right atrium is mildly enlarged 7.  Moderate-severe mitral regurgitation  8. Mild -moderate tricuspid regurgitation 9. Moderate pulmonary hypertension 10. The right ventricular systolic pressure as measured by Doppler is 58 mmHg.  11.  Trace pulmonic regurgitation 12. Trivial pericardial fluid noted.

Her 2d and M-Mode numbers were as follows;

RVIDd   =  3.4 cm,         LA Diam  =   4.4 cm  (2.1-4.0)       LVOT Diam = 2.2 cm   IVSd = .9 cm    LVIDd = 5.7 cm  
LVPWd =    .9 cm          LVIDs      =   3.8 cm                    AO Diam     = 2.5        LA Diam =4.5 cm  (2.1 - 4.0)
AV Cusp = 1.6 cm         LVIDd       =  5.4 cm                    LVIDs          = 3.7 cm   LA Diam =3.9 cm (2.1-4.0)

Mitral Valve as follows;

MV E Vel = 1.21 m/s     MV DecT   =  203 ms                  MV Dec Slope=6.0 m/s2  MV A Vel = .49 m/s
MV E/A ratio=2.45         MV PHT    = 59 ms                    MVA by PHT  = 3.7cm2     E' = .14m/s        E/E' = 8.79

Aortic Valve as follows;

LVOT Vmax = 1.0 m/s   LVOT maxPG = 4.88 mmHg        LVOT meanPG = 2.34 mmHg   AV Vmax = 1.47 m/s
AV Vmean   = 1.01 m/s AV maxPG     = 8.67 mmHg        AV meanPG = 4.74 mmHg       AV Vmax = 2.8 cm

Tricuspid and Pulmonic as follows;

PV Vmax  = .92 m/s  PV maxPG = 3.41 mmHg   TR Vmax =  3.28 m/s TR maxPG = 43.02 mmHg RAP =15mmHg

This cardoiogram was ruled a technically adequate study.  What can we do to help this to correct itself nutritionally?  What do these numbers indicate?  My wife recently had arrythmias with a resting pulse rate that went between 65 and 125.  We have since calmed that down to a resting pulse of between 50 and 60(Usually 56 is her average with a steady range of 55 to 57).  Should we consult a PE specialist?  And is there such a thing as a naturapathic PE cardiologists?

Thank you!
Sincerely
Vincent Cruz

Here is more information, with pictures, of some of your wife's problems:

As you can read, surgery is the only real treatment for mitral regurgitation.  It's like dealing with faulty valves in an engine:  You cannot fix this with diet.

Nutritionally??????
Are you saying you believe the mitral valve which is severely leaking and causing the heart to enlarge, can be repaired with a change of diet?
I have never seen a severely leaking valve repaired by 'natural' means. You do realise how serious a moderate to severe leaking mitral valve is? is can very quickly develop to a life threatening situation requiring emergency surgery. I would speak to a cardiologist about surgery and forget food.
