Warming yang, which is one of the treatment principles of traditional Chinese Medicine, is very important in treating chronic heart failure, especially late-stage heart failure. It has been proved in many experiments and clinical trials that warming yang can improve the hemodynamic parameters. The treatment strategy for heart failure has changed from short-term correction of hemodynamic parameters to long-term rehabilitation approaches. We discussed the possible negative-effects of warming yang on neuroendocrine responses and myocardial remodeling.

Despite the availability of six classes of antihypertensive agents, control of blood pressure and improving patients' quality of life remain far from ideal. There is a wide variability in terms of the hypotensive effect and side effect profile for the same antihypertensive agent used in different patients. How to select the right agent to provide the most beneficial results in terms of efficacy and improvement of quality of life as well as to decrease clinical symptoms and minimize adverse reactions is an important therapeutic challenge.
