The most common treatment available for CAD is Angioplasty, Bypass surgery, Stent surgery and chelation therapy. It has been reported that there are some side effects with chelation therapy if sufficient care is not taken during the treatment. With respect to angioplasty, bypass and stent surgery, it is known as bypassing the problem and not a permanent solution. Several cases have been reported of re-clogging of arteries after the bypass. There are cases where patients have undergone second and third time bypass surgery. There are instances where patients have undergone repeated angioplasty and stent surgery. In Post management 80 % cases show positive patient functional response and improvements in conventional investigations after 3-4 months recorded as: 1. Improved Ejection fraction 2. Improved Stroke volume 3. Improved Myocardial perfusion 4. Correction of Diastolic dysfunction 5. Improved endothelial function 6. Soft thrombus / clots dissolved Suggestion and conclusion 7. Regeneration of collateral circulation 8. Reduced & balanced levels of oxidant, Free radicals, Lipid profile 9. Arterial compliance improved 10. Symptomatic relief of Chest Pain, Heaviness in chest, Breathlessness 11. Improved Walking stamina, Overall energy, Vigor, vitality, Functional stability 12. Complete reversal of Myocardial Perfusion is noted in few cases on Stress Thallium Scans. 13. Positive Changes noted in ECG, Stress test, CT Scan Brain, MRI Brain, Color Doppler rVita’s approach is a successful non invasive, Integrative, holistic time and result effective protocol for primary & secondary Prevention of Myocardial Infract. It is successful in reducing symptoms of CAD/IHD /Vascular blocks and useful in reduction of post incident, post CABG / Angioplasty / stent; Recurrence of symptoms, achieving functional stability soon. rVita approach offers “Healing the Heart” effectively, leading to Happy fully functional life in a short time period.
  2. 2. Is brought on by a brief period of poor blood supply to the heart muscle. Does not cause permanent damage to the heart. Symptoms last just a few minutes and are usually relieved by rest and/or medications. Symptoms include chest pain or discomfort, shortness of breath, palpitations, faster heart rate, dizziness, nausea, extreme weakness and sweating. Symptoms are relieved by rest and/or medications within a few minutes. Does not require emergency medical attention; however, it is important to call your doctor if this is the first time you've experienced angina, if you have new symptoms or if they become more frequent or severe. Occurs when the blood supply to the heart muscle is blocked for an extended period of time (often due to a clot forming in a partially blocked coronary artery). Results in permanent damage to the heart muscle. Symptoms usually last more than a few minutes and include chest pain or discomfort that lasts for more than a few minutes or goes away and comes back; pain or discomfort in other areas of the upper body; difficulty breathing or shortness of breath; sweating or "cold" sweat; fullness, indigestion or choking feeling; nausea or vomiting; light-headedness; extreme weakness; anxiety; rapid or irregular heartbeats. Symptoms are not relieved by rest or oral medications. Requires emergency medical attention if symptoms last longer than 5 minutes. Angina Heart Attack Why hurt your heart with invasive surgeries, painful therapies and strong medicines leading to adverse side effects? Instead, heal it gently with rVita Heart Care Therapy - an integrative healing that combines researched and proven Ayurvedic therapies, modern diagnostic techniques, therapeutic yoga exercises, and well-balanced diet plans. DIFFERENCE BETWEEN AN ANGINAAND A HEART- ATTACK The heart is a strong muscular pump. The heart pumps blood to nourish all parts of the body, including itself. It is responsible for pumping about 3,000 gallons of blood throughout the body every day. Like other muscles in the body, the heart itself needs to receive a good supply of blood at all times to function properly.The blood that nourishes the heart muscle flows through the coronary arteries. Coronary artery disease (CAD) occurs when the arteries that supply blood to the heart muscle (the coronary arteries) become hardened and narrowed due to build up of plaque on their inner walls, which is known as atherosclerosis. Some hardening of the arteries occurs normally as a person grows older. Plaque build up in the arteries, which is made up of fat, cholesterol, calcium, and other substances from the blood, often begins in childhood. Over time, plaque buildup in the coronary arteries can:  Narrow the arteries - reducing the amount of blood and oxygen that reaches the heart muscle  Completely block the arteries - stopping the flow of blood to the heart muscle  Cause blood clots to form - blocking the arteries that supply blood to the heart muscle As the plaque increases in size, the insides of the coronary arteries get narrower and less blood can flow through them. Eventually, blood flow to the heart muscle is reduced, and, because blood carries much-needed oxygen, the heart muscle is not able to receive the amount of oxygen it needs. Reduced or cutoff blood flow and oxygen supply to the heart muscle can result in Angina, Heart Attack, Heart Failure, Arrhythmias etc. SYMPTOMS OF A HEART ATTACK / STROKE Uncomfortable pressure, fullness, squeezing or pain in the center of the chest lasting more than a few minutes; Pain spreading to the shoulders, neck or arms. The arm may be tingling or numb. The pain may be mild to intense. It may feel like pressure, tightness, burning, or heavy weight. It may be located in the chest, upper abdomen, neck, jaw, or inside the arms or shoulders. (Diabetic patients may not experience any pain at all.) Chest discomfort with lightheadedness, fainting, profuse sweating, nausea or shortness of breath, dizziness and weakness, anxiety, nervousness and/or cold, sweaty skin, paleness or pallor, increased or irregular heart beating, feeling of impending doom, feeling of indigestion, sudden numbness or weakness of the face, arm or leg, especially on one side of the body, sudden confusion, trouble in speaking or understanding, sudden trouble seeing in one or both eyes, sudden trouble walking, loss of balance or coordination, severe headache with no known cause. Not all of these signs occur in every attack. Sometimes they go away and return. If some occur, get help fast. IF YOU NOTICE ONE OR MORE OF THESE SIGNS IN YOURSELF OR OTHERS, DON'T WAIT. CALL EMERGENCY MEDICAL SERVICES RIGHT AWAY! Angina is a warning symptom of heart disease – but it is not a heart attack. The symptoms of a heart attack (also called myocardial infarction or "MI") are similar to angina. EJECTION FRACTION (EF%): Blockage of arteries starts from the very young age. Even a 10 years old child will have blocked arteries. Whatever the percentage of blockage one might have, the important factor is the ejection fraction. An ejection fraction is the percentage of blood pumped out of a heart chamber during the contraction phase of each heartbeat (systole). The term typically refers to a measurement of the left ventricle (the lower left chamber of the heart), which pumps oxygen-rich blood out to the body through the aorta. An ejection fraction can also be measured in the right ventricle (the lower right chamber), which pumps blood returning from the body to the lungs for oxygen. However, this measurement is nearly always referred to as a right ventricular ejection fraction. An EF above 50 percent indicates that your heart is pumping normally and able to deliver an adequate supply of blood to your body and brain. An EF that falls below 50 percent could indicate that the heart is no longer pumping efficiently and not able to meet the body's needs. An EF of 35 percent or less indicates a weakened heart muscle and that the heart is pumping poorly, which can significantly increase a person's risk for Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA). CAUSES 1. Free radicals: The process of manufacture of margarine involves heating oil to very high temperatures. That high temperature makes the oils to convert into free radicals in the form of hydrogenated fats. 2. Cholesterol: The bulk of cholesterol in the body is manu factured by the body, and not taken into the body as part of the diet. TREATMENTS AVAILABLE FOR CAD: Treatment options currently available for the management of Myocardial Infarction (MI) include both pharmacological therapy as well as surgical treatment. BYPASS SURGERY: As the name states, it is nothing but bypassing the problem to improve the blood circulation. By cutting the blocked portion of the arteries, take out some artery from elsewhere of the body and graft. The blocked portion of the artery remains there as it was. How many grafting one can do? There is limitation. Besides, a bypass surgery would cost anywhere between Rs. 2 and Rs. 4 lakhs. ANGIOPLASTY BALLOONING: The process of opening the blocked portion with external pressure with the help of a die, it costs from Rs. 50,000 to Rs. 85,000. STENT SURGERY: Stent is a small spring which is inserted at the blockage and clears the artery for blood circulation. The surgery would cost from Rs. 35,000 to Rs. 55,000 CHELATION THERAPY: Chelation therapy is injecting certain chemical into the blood which clears the blockage. However, if sufficient care is not taken it has undesired side effects that damage the kidney. Chelation Therapy would cost from Rs. 45,000.00 to Rs. 60,000. EECP: When one artery gets blocked, a new artery opens of its own which is called as collateral artery. Enhanced External Counter Pulsation (EECP) is a therapy in which external pressure is applied on blood vessels to open the collateral arteries and improve the ejection fraction. One may have to take 25 to 30 sittings and it will cost Rs.80,000 to Rs.90,000. NO PERMANENT SOLUTIONS But, all the above remedies are temporary and they can’t guarantee against re-clogging of arteries. The problem with surgical procedures such as coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) or angioplasty is that these therapies are localized, invasive and do not address the root cause of the disorder but only offer palliative treatment. Angioplasty offers only tempo- rary relief in the form of dilatation of the coronary arteries as re-stenosis can occur after a few months in some patients. Concomitant use of drugs such as anti-platelet agents, beta-blockers and ACE inhibitors are necessary to prevent another attack. However, these drugs have adverse side effects. Cough is one of the most common side effects for ACE inhibi- tors while beta-blockers have an unfavorable effect on the lipid profile. However these therapies for Myocardial Infarction have not proven to be sufficient enough in arresting the progress of the underlying disease. HEAL YOUR HEART GENTLY, NATURALLY rVita’s unique approach of combining the strength of natural therapies with Ayurveda and therapeutic yoga, modern diagnostics and personalized,well-balanced diet plans have answer for all your questions. We have tried this with small group of patients and have analyzed the results at end of 3-4 months which were extremely encouraging. Ayurveda, the Indian traditional system of medicine, offers a treasure of herbal remedies, which is yet largely unexplored. A number of plant preparations have been suggested for therapy of heart disorders in Ayurveda in a chapter encompassing Trimarmiya Chikitsatam Adhyaya (treatment of disorders of three vital organs viz., Heart, Brain and Kidney). A number of Indian medicinal plants have been evaluated for their use in Myocardial Infarction mainly as add on therapy. Herbal ingredients used in Ayurvedic approach: 1. Terminalia Arjuna - It induces improvement of cardiac muscle function and subsequently improves pumping activity of the heart; Promotes effective cardiac functioning, regulates blood pressure and tones the heart. 2. Carum Roxburghianum - Credited with stimulant, carmi- native and diuretic properties and prescribed as a sedative and tonic, this fatty oil from seeds is used in many medicinal prepa- rations as an antispasmodic and nerve stimulant. 3. Tribulus Terrestis - Considered as a miracle herb in India and used as a physical rejuvenation tonic, this herb is used in the treatment of urinary disorders, kidney diseases and gravel diseases of the genito-urinary system, calculus affections, gout besides diseases of the heart, and many other conditions. 4. Punica Granatum - Clinical research has proved pomegran- ate juice to decrease LDL ("bad cholesterol") and increased HDL ("good cholesterol") by 20% in humans. The oxidation of LDL, which is believed by many researchers to be a major cause of heart disease, was reduced by up to 90%. 5. Vitis Venifera - It enhances capillary strength and vascular function which helps the heart and decreases PMS problems, bruising, edema from injury or trauma varicose veins, leg swelling and retinopathy, enhanced immune resistance, increased peripheral circulation, improved vision, reduced adverse allergic and inflammatory response, reduction in skin aging and loss of elasticity. 6. Piper Longum - It induces alterations in membrane dynamics and permeation characteristics along with induction in synthesis of proteins associated with cytoskeletal function resulting in an increase in small intestine absorptive surface, assisting efficient permeation through the epithelial barrier. 7. Adhathoda Vasica - The active alkaloid vasicine and its auto oxidation product vasicinone have shown broncho-dilator and anti-histaminic effects. Uterine stimulant activity and moderate hypotensive activity of the alkaloids were reported. Thrombopoeitic activity of vasicine has been observed. 8. Cinnamomum Cassia - Cinnamon is warm and cordial to the stomach, carminative and distinctly astringent. When given in powder or infusion, it allays nausea, checks vomiting, and relieves flatulence. 9. Thriphala - A laxative, alterative, anti-inflammatory, carminative, expectorant, anti oxidant and anti microbial, it is useful for digestion, lungs, skin, eyes and weight management. 10. Tenospora Cordifolia - Used in general debility, dyspepsia, fevers and urinary diseases, the drug shows anti-periodic, anti-spasmodic anti-inflammatory and anti-pyretic plant is used in Ayurveda rasayanas to improve the immune system and the body’s resistance to infections. It is used as immune-modulator in immune-suppression of obstructive jaundice, fibrosis, peritonitis and sepsis. 11. Bacopa Monneri - It improves mental stability, alertness, calmness, good for insomnia, depression, sleep related troubles, low and high blood pressures, high and intermittent fevers, menstrual disorders. It is one of the powerful anti-oxidant herb widely used in Ayurveda for rejuvenation. Heal your heart gently with rVita Heart Care Therapy
