Is surgery the only way to treat heart problems?
Are non-invasive treatments as effective as surgery?
Now that we have established this basic point, let’s understand the different cardiological problems that can crop up
Cardiology is the term used for the study to identify and treat heart-related problems. The primary method of treatment in this widely known department is through various medications and surgery.
From a conventional medicine practices point of view, the cardiology department only functions after the initial problem gets diagnosed, meaning the system here is to be more on the side of managing the problem than finding a solution to solve it altogether. This does not involve conventional medicine are any less valid, but the idea of new age medicine is to go deep into the roots of the problem than solving the issues that are on the surface.
Now the significant confusion among all of us is the understanding of heart problems. For instance, a heart attack and a cardiac arrest are two different things. In a heart attack, a part of the heart is affected and thus leads to modify some of its essential functionalities, and it could be caused by multiple factors including a faulty artery or blockade in the supply to the heart. A cardiac arrest, on the other hand, is when the heart completely stops in its function, which could be led by a series of heart problems or diseases. Our understanding regarding these matters is solely based on the extensive knowledge of information that is available through our sources, which are mainly based on conventional methods.
Then the big question is regarding the prevention of cardiac diseases. Stats say that nearly most of the heart diseases could be stopped beforehand, meaning a preventive measure which could guide the individual into leading something of a better than current lifestyle and in return prevent the dread of having a cardiac problem. On the other hand, conventional medication only helps in preventing about 26% of heart problems, and some of it could also be a recurrence of a current issue.
What is integrated medicine for cardiac problems?
Integrated medicine looks more into the ideas of preventing cardiac problems by diagnosing the problem with early screening and preventive measures. In other words, integrated medicine’s treatment of cardiology is treated on the physical and mental or emotional aspects of an individual patient to understand the cause of the brewing problem. Integrative methods do not believe in solving cardiac issues through the use of medication or surgery as the primary go-to-solution but help the patient by working instead with diet, lifestyle and therapies, all of which comes designed to create a specific balance in the patient’s body.
The fundamental objective of integrated cardiology is not to put down the methods used conventionally; instead, it is to combine well with the other style. By combining, patients receive all the standard medical diagnosis that is available in the conventional method but with an alternate medicine mindset. The only purpose is to bring the heart function back to its previous self, create and maintain the balance your heart might require; most importantly to treat the cause of the problem and not the effect after the first setback.
At Dr Saxena’s Clinic, we are a group that specialises in integrative cardiology. We are here to let the person be free of heart-related issues, while on the other hand provide with the many ideas that help in leading a balanced lifestyle and keeping the heart among other bodily organs together, in good shape.
Our specialists emerge from the foundations which use medications as a last resort than the first. At Dr Saxena’s clinic we look at the heart from an integrative medicine perspective; here the heart is not the one that needs treatment, but the entire body in conjunction with other essential organs requires balancing than only treat the one problematic heart. Our ultimate goal is to help the patients with maintaining total health in their body, mind and emotion.
Non-Surgical Bypass EECP
The way modern medicine or the conventional method works, people with heart problems in many cases end up under the surgeon’s knife, especially for a bypass surgery, which accompanied by a plethora of medications is there to change lives and most importantly to manage it. There is no reassurance that the patient might not need further procedures to correct the problem.
At Dr Saxena’s we help patients with a viable alternative to bypass surgery or angioplasty for that matter. The Non-Surgical Bypass EECP is an FDA approved alternative to the conventional bypass surgery, made available to patients suffering from cardiovascular diseases and congestive heart failure. This is primarily for those patients who are sceptical about going through invasive procedures or those who feel the medications leading to their problem isn’t solving the real problem.
A Non-Surgical Bypass procedure does not involve the patient going under the knife or leaving the hope on pharmaceutical therapy. It does not even require any anaesthesia or a hospital stay. ECP is a circulatory assist device which provides counterpulsation for the treatment of ischemic heart disease and enables the heart to grow its own bypasses. The procedure is safe, painless and undoubtedly affordable compared to conventional methods.
Chelation Therapy is a certified treatment for blocked blood vessels. While blocked blood vessels are known to be treated using surgical means, the result is almost underwhelming, because it only helps in managing a few inches of the vascular system. Chelation Therapy, on the other hand, is known to reach every inch of the blood vessel, and the treatment is penetrative enough to treat areas that surgery cannot reach.
Benefits of Chelation Therapy –
- Helps in reducing outcomes of heart diseases namely chest pain, stroke and heart attack.
- Chances of a recurrence of a prior condition like a previous heart attack, Chelation Therapy reduces the risk by 40%
- Better results were achieved when Chelation therapy was combined with high dose oral multivitamins.
- There are not as many adverse effects of chelation therapy.
