Conquering Heart Disease - by Dr. Desai
The Indian Epidemic of Heart Disease
CAD incidence in India has increased by 220% during last 3 decades - Its Time to wakeup !
Every hour approx 90 Indians are dying
due to heart disease. Everyday 20000 new cases of
heart disease are detected in India. Approximately
135 million Indians are at present suffering from
heart disease. The incidence is still rising inspite
of advancements in modern medicine & large number
of expensive Bypass / Angioplasty procedures which
sadly provide no lasting solution. Stressful, sedentary
life and unhealthy diet are the chief culprits for
rapidly rising CAD incidence.
According to WHO expert committee estimates, by the year 2025, India will have the highest number of patients of heart disease, diabetes and high BP in the world.
Bypass/Angioplasty - No solution to rising CAD incidence & deaths
Heart Attack & death can occur even after Bypass/ Angioplasty.
It is now proved that most heart patients, in their coronary arteries, have several developing blockages that are not seen on an angiogram (and hence not treated) and, although non-obstructive, these blockages have same high risk of causing heart attack by plaque rupture & clot formation. Tunnel visioned modern cardiology keeps on developing more complicated, risky & expensive operative techniques to open up only the severe blockages but neglects developing vulnerable plaques. Due to uncontrolled, neglected risk factors like, diabetes, cholesterol, high BP, obesity, stress, etc, heart disease progresses relentlessly. Even after enormous amount of money & resources spent after Bypass / Angioplasty, heart attacks & deaths continue to occur and many patients come back with recurrence needing repeat operations which very few can afford.
Watch out ! The treatment offered may be more dangerous than your disease.
Power of Natural Healing - You Can Count On It !
Even the best treatments are not as powerful as preventive health management
Nature has bestowed human heart with amazing capacity of self-healing of blockages (including reversal) and developing ‘Natural Bypass' by increase of several small collateral blood vessels in the heart. Control of risk factors, moderate exercise & diet control along with yoga-stress management can greatly enhance your natural healing process and prevent serious complications for several years. Recently available very effective medicines for cholesterol, diabetes, blood pressure, etc, have given a tremendous boost to the success of conservative medical management of heart disease.
Positive physical & mental status
can do wonders to your overall well-being by producing
several good chemicals like endorphins which heal your
plaques, reduce blood clotting, open up your arteries,
reduce BP & sugar levels, etc. Our Cardio Uno patients
have experienced this power of Natural Healing by achieving
an impressive of 30% to 50% increase in peak treadmill
performance, 100% to 120% increase in fitness index and
decrease of 30% to 40% of medicines within just 2-3 months
of Therapeutic Life style Changes (TLC) program. Several
recent studies have proved beyond doubt that fatty deposit
causing heart disease can be reserved (Circulation journal,
August 2004 article) and risk of heart attack and symptoms
of angina can be reduced by 40% to 60% by aggressive medical
management and TLC Program.
According to the well known cardiologist
Dr. Enas A. Enas, (Director, Coronary Artery Disease in
Asian Indians Research Foundation, Illinois, USA), the
treatment of heart disease has now come to nearly a full
circle, with prevention and comprehensive risk factors
reduction therapies becoming the foundation of the long
term management of coronary artery disease.
As against 220% increase in CAD incidence in India during last 2-3 decades, USA has achieved an impressive 60% reduction in CAD incidence, thanks to aggressive preventing measures and control of risk factors. It's time for us, Indians, to wake up.
You can change your cardiac destiny.
Controlling Risk Factors By Therapeutic Lifestyle Changes–(TLC)
Experience the power of prevention first hand.
To be more effective & successful, the changes in lifestyle and the efforts to control risk factors have to be aggressive, well organized, comprehensive (all inclusive) and should be aided by multispeciality medical guidance of cardiologist, dietitian, exercise expert, yoga instructor, health educator etc.
This new, very successful approach is
now well recognized as Therapeutic Life Style Changes (TLC)
Program. Together with modern technology and new effective
drugs to control diabetes, blood cholesterol and blood
pressure, Therapeutic Lifestyle Changes (TLC) program can
achieve unbelievably good results at a much lower cost
with lasting benefits to physical, cardio vascular & mental
health of the patients. Slowing down and even reversal
of atheroslcerotic process with significant reduction in
symptoms, complications & deaths are all very much
possible with TLC Programs.
