Has anyone dealt with Micro Vascular Disease, (also known as Syndrome X)?
My wife has recently been diagnosed with MVD which is similar to angina.

MVD is frustrating as there are so few ways to get at it. It basically is atherosclerosis of the heart capillaries - small vessels where the disease is difficult or impossible to detect. Theoretically, this condition can be prevented and reversed by the same processes used to treat macro-vessel disease.

Here is an interesting citiation from the Texas Heart Institute.
