What is the natural replacement for ramipril?

Is there a natural alternative to ramiprill. My husband is on both statins and ramiprill, he is a fit 67 years old and seasoned runner and he was prescribed both because we found out he has narrowing of the arteries. He is also on supplements - krill oil, homycysteine, vitamin k, co-q-10, vitamin d and rose hip extract for arthritis in his feet. I am nervous to take him off these drugs as he is under a cardiologist but I have taken him off aspirin as it was causing internal bleeding i.e. Large bruising to his stomach and causing blood in his semen. The cardiologist is aware of this. Many thanks. Hilary Pinder

Hi,

Ramipril is largely to prevent end organ damage like eyes, nephropathy, neuropathy. If that is not there, then there is no need.

Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.
