    Well if your going for effect I would use "Drasticly" or "grossly". Sounds more dire and makes said process sound that much better. Yous want a process that fixes heavy problems or DRASTIC ones?

    Or just take the adverb out altogether.

    I would prefer another word. Perhaps greatly?

    Heavily is OK. "Seriously" might work better.
