For millions of heart patients chest pain is the commonest feature of dreaded heart disease associated with death due to heart attack. Hereditary factors, blood pressure, high cholesterol, smoking, stress, etc lead to deposits, blockages and Coronary Artery Disease. It is now established that Bypass surgery and angioplasty are not always successful and don’t stop new deposits hence there is often recurrence after them.
A recent 41 million dollar double blind TACT study of over 1,700 patients in USA showed promising results for treating heart disease (coronary artery disease) with the Chelation therapy protocol of the American College for Advancement of Medicine (ACAM), California.
Newer therapies based on ACAM protocol such as Artery Clearance Therapy (ACT) have shown significant improvement in heart health status and decrease heart attacks even in patients who have had a previous attack or have diabetes. The ACT treatment with drip medication is safe and is a blessing for heart patients who can now increase blood flow to heart muscle without bypass surgery or stents that have increased risks and recurrence rates.
Another boon and advancement of medical science is External counter pulsation ECP / EECP which has been established by US-FDA as a non surgical heart treatment for blocked blood vessels which cause angina chest pain due to decreased blood supply to heart muscles. ECP dilates blood vessels and enables body to grow new blood vessels thus increasing blood and oxygen supply to heart muscle by 20 to 40% much like bypass and stem cell therapy. ECP works using ECG synchronised microprocessor controlled inflatable leg and arm cuffs without pushing wires, stents etc. into the body. ACT and ECP prevent and reverse heart diseases, angina, reblock after bypass surgery, poor circulation to legs, brain, sex organs, etc. Most patients can walk longer distance and faster, have less chest pain and need less medication after ACT and ECP. Non-invasive pre-angioram Cardiovascular Cartography and Stress Thallium confirm the increased heart flow, besides symptomatic improvement which patient feels with lesser requirement of medicines and better quality of life.
