Brief Answer:
No natural treatment for heart infection or endocarditis so far

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

I understand your concern.

There is no natural treatment for heart infection or endocarditis.

The very first thing is to determine if you have endocarditis through echocardiogram and hemoculture.

If confirmed, antibiotics are prescribed and anti - inflammatory medications.

Hope it was of help!
