In a lecture series organized by the ‘Omkareshwar Yogopachar Kendra’ on the occasion of ‘Guru Purnima’, Dr. Jyostna Patil, Director of Poona Preventive Cardiology Centre, delivered an enlightening lecture on the topic of ‘Controlling Heart diseases, Diabetes, and Preventive Cardiology’. In the past twelve years, she has been successfully treating patients with various heart diseases without performing any physical surgeries.
Through her successful treatments, she has proved that ‘Any Heart disease is a gradually incrementing problem. It does not simply occur in a day or two, but it cultivates in the body for over several years. And it can be prevented through proper exercise, diet, and certain preventive methodologies.
The primary motive of these preventive cardiology methods is to: • Focus on the root cause of the disease to reduce it effectively. • Reduce and prevent various symptoms of heart diseases such as chest pain, • Strengthen the overall blood circulatory system and improve the heart’s pumping ability and efficiency. • Control and prevent High Blood Pressure and Diabetes. She also talks about the uses and benefits of the latest ECP therapy, the German technology-based ESMR therapy and the chelation therapy, which have proven to be a better alternative to surgeries like Bypass and Angioplasty.
ECP (External Counter Pulsation) therapy:
Designed in America, ECP therapy is approved by all cardiologists around the world. This treatment can increase the diameter of the patient’s arteries in 30 to 35 hours equivalent to the size of an athlete’s arteries who have been practicing for over 30 years.It helps improve blood flow in the arteries, therefore, eliminating the need for a bypass or angioplasty.
ESMR (Extracorporeal Shockwave Myocardial Revascularization) system
Firstly, with the help of a ‘2D Echo’ test, the points of weak blood pressure around the heart are verified, and then those low-pressure points are treated using sound waves.This treatment helps in developing new blood veins which improve blood supply and also reduces symptoms such as fatigue and chest pain. It has proven to be one of the safest and fastest heart treatment techniques.
This therapy is primarily performed to remove any form of microparticles and toxic substances from the body. It also reduces rigidity in the arteries, which improve the amount of blood flow in all organs of the body.We are all aware of the fact that a proper diet accompanied by sufficient exercise will always lead to a healthier and prolonged life. Preventive Cardiology works on the same principle by treating patients with comprehensive therapies, exercises, and diet management, which can enhance their health and help them live a long and pain-free life.
