SAAOL Science and Art of Living, has established itself as one of the best center for non-invasive treatment. We have been treating heart patients with the US FDA-approved EECP treatment. During our journey of more than 26+ years, we have seen people’s misery due to heart problems when they initially arrive for treatment. When they had issues even after angioplasty, many of our patients appeared to abandon all hope. The standard treatment for angina patients with heart blockages is to recommend either bypass surgery or angioplasty, which helps to expand the restricted blood arteries and increase blood flow and circulation. However, certain persons might not be qualified to have an angioplasty, such as those who have:
- Blockages in arteries that are filled with fatty plaques, extended to the full length of the artery.
- People with kidney problems.
Angioplasty is unsuccessful in these situations. Even if it is tried, the likelihood of recurrence is quite high. The likelihood of recurrence is rising for those who have undergone many treatments. For such individuals, EECP, or Enhanced External Counter Pulsation, is recommended as a substitute.
In these situations, EECP treatment has proven to be successful as it has shown a considerable decrease in angina frequency (episodes of chest pain, shortness of breath, etc.) in a patient. But before we understand why EECP is better than angioplasty or bypass, let’s understand the basics of both treatments.
What is Bypass Surgery?
Coronary bypass surgery reroutes blood around a portion of a coronary artery that is obstructed or partially clogged. During the treatment, a healthy blood artery is removed from your leg, arm, or chest and connected below and above the heart’s obstructed arteries. Blood flow to the heart muscle is improved using a new route. The cardiac condition that led to the blockages is not treated by coronary bypass surgery. However, reduce symptoms like shortness of breath and chest discomfort.
What is Angioplasty?
During angioplasty, the blocked coronary artery is accessed through a long, thin tube (catheter). This tube is inserted into a blood vessel with a small balloon at the end. The balloon is inflated at the heart artery’s constricted portion once the catheter has been inserted.
The procedures may come with some dangers and health concerns that might endanger one’s health or possibly cause additional issues. In contrast, EECP treatment addresses the health of the entire heart, including the circulatory system, therefore unlike surgery, it is not a “localized” technique. Thus, there are more general, holistic advantages such as:
- The surgery is outpatient, therefore there is no need for hospitalization.
- The process is non-invasive, therefore there is no danger of infection, bleeding, or blood clots.
- For this treatment, there is no anesthesia used because there is no discomfort at all.
- Other bodily components or organs are unaffected by it.
- No interference with routine of the patients.
It’s very well-known that heart treatments require preparation by both (doctors and patients). However, EECP treatment can also yield similar results with ease. A person doesn’t need to be stressed or worried about the repercussions as it’s totally safe treatment.
Heart blockages are addressed using EECP treatment along with yoga, meditation, and stress management training at SAAOL – Science and Art of Living,” the epitome of non-invasive treatment. The combination is designed such that patients may implement it into their daily lives with ease. Practicality is guaranteed, and family members are also trained. The SAAOL Heart Program is the most up-to-date, scientifically sound, non-invasive, long-lasting, and secure method of treating coronary blockages, the most prevalent kind of heart disease. This initiative is intended to assist cardiac patients who do not want to have surgery or who are not physically capable of doing so. Heart problems can turn fatal if the right treatment isn’t provided this is why before choosing any treatment it’s important to know the pros and cons of it.
