1.Nature bypass therapy

   Everybody knows that there are thousands of arteries in the heart. The three main coronary arteries first give origin to about 10 branches which in turn give rise to 100 branches and the hundred branches give thousands of branches. These branches are called capillaries. They all are connected to each other and can give or receive blood from each other. These channels can be a good source of blood to heart muscles when some of the major or minor arteries get blocked. If, somehow, these channels can open up or are made more broad, the deprived heart muscles can get adequate blood supply. This can be called a natural bypass.

   These natural channels are very much present in sports persons or athletes. As they do a lot of exercises throughout their career, the heart muscles develop these capillaries into broader tubes. Once these tubes are developed the athletes do no get angina even if they develop blockages to the extent of 80-90%. Their heart muscles do not die even if they suffer from the 100% blockage.

How to develop these Natural Bypass Channels?
   We can not make a heart patient run like an athlete. We can not ask them to perform severe exercises, because on slightest exertion, they will get angina. But now scientists have designed a new machine which can develop these parallel channels. This machine can artificially increase the flow of blood in the coronary channels by directly increasing the pressure at the root of the coronary arteries. A one hour treatment with this machine can start opening this parallel artery/capillary system supplying more blood to the heart muscles. This treatment has to be continued for about thirty sessions to fully develop the second natural channel.

   The advantage of this treatment is that there is no admission to a hospital, no withdraw from your work, no invasion to the body and the cost is low. It has no side effects of the surgery.

What does the machine do?
   You must know that the blood flow to the coronary arteries occurs during the phase when the heart muscles relax – called the diastole. Blood can not enter majority of the arteries during systole as the heart muscles contract during this period making the flow impossible. This machine supplies more blood to the heart muscles during diastole. It has some pressure systems which are wrapped around the body parts which have extra blood storage. The pressure systems are activated regularly synchronizing in such a way that much more blood reaches the origin of the coronary arteries during every diastole of the heart. Thus the coronary arteries get filled up completely with blood during these periods flushing so much blood in the dormant but stretchable elastic capillaries that they become broad.

   In other words, this machine works on the heart arteries in 30 hours opening the arteries much more than the athlete does in 30 years. It is much better than bypass surgery or angioplasty.

Is this Natural Bypass Accepted all over the world?
   Yes, this machine has seen a lot of popularity in the last twenty years. About 200 centers in USA use this machine. In China it has almost replaced bypass surgery and angioplasty. There are as many as 1000 centers in China which are using this treatment for the heart patients.


2.Walking for the Heart Disease

   Walking is one of the most important steps for reversal of heart disease. One must walk for a minimum of thirty five minutes per day. What is more important for the heart patient is to know the speed of walking and safety factor while walking. Cardiologists scare the patients when they advise them to undergo angioplasty or bypass. After the scare the patients stop walking, even if the patients have confidence that he will have no problem in walking; the relatives are so scared that they do not allow them to walk. The following understanding will help them to walk.

Why walking?
   Walking is a must for a heart patient. It has many advantages. It reduces weight, controls sugar, and reduces stress. It gives the joints its adequate movement, fresh air – if you walk in the morning. Regular walks help in the control of blood pressure. It also reduces cholesterol and triglycerides. But the most important advantage is that – it gives fitness to the heart. In other words, it gives the heart the habit of working more efficiently. These can only be achieved by regular walk of minimum 35 minutes per day. Apart from reversal, walking also increases the collateral vessels in the heart. For angina patients—compared to any other form of exercise, walking has another advantage – you can slow down or stop immediately when you get angina and get relief.

How to know the speed of walking scientifically?
   Walking increases the heart rate. This increases the requirement of oxygen in the heart muscles. This can lead to angina in heart patients – if you do not know the correct speed, which will vary from patient to patient. So, you must know the correct speed. The main determinant of the speed is how much blood is now reaching the heart at present and this, in turn, depends on how much blockages the patients have.

   Let us consider how angina occurs. The “ resting heart rate” for a person is about 70 per minute. It may vary from 50 to 90. You can count your pulse and know about it. When a heart patient (who may have 70-90% blockage), sits on his bed and remains at rest the pulse/heart rate is about 70. He does not have angina now as the blood reaching the heart is adequate. But when he/she walks and gradually increases speed, the heart rate goes up, the oxygen requirement of the heart muscles also goes up. Now, depending on the blockage or the blood reaching the heart muscles, angina will come at a particular speed. This speed is called “angina threshold.” Scientifically, a heart patient should try not to reach this speed and thus walk slower than the threshold. At this speed the angina will not occur and the benefits of walking will be achieved.

   To know this threshold very correctly, one should do a TMT or exercise stress test and know at what heart rate the ECG changes occur or angina comes, Now, he/she should count the heart rate during walking by feeling the pulse for the first 10 seconds. Then during walking keep your heart rate 20 less than the maximum heart rate (heart rate achieved during TMT).

How to roughly judge the walking speed?
   Start walking slowly. Gradually increase the speed. Feel when the angina (chest heaviness, pain, choking or breathlessness) is about to come. Stop, the feeling will go away. Walk again, but now the speed will be slower than the last time. Keep walking now and the angina will not come. This is the correct speed.

Advantages of walking:
1. Reduction of sugar or control of diabetes.
2. Reduction of blood pressure in high BP patient.
3. Burning of calories – thus reduction of weight.
4. Increased flexibility of leg joints.
5. Fresh air if walking in a park.
6. Stress reduction.
7. Increased lung capacity.
8. Increased fitness or cardiovascular fitness.
9. Increased energy level.
10. Reduction of cholesterol and triglycerides.

   Depending on the rough speed we divide the angina patients into four categories: Class I Angina is when the patients can walk all right and only get angina on walking fast or climbing inclines. Class II Angina patients are those who get angina in moderate/ ordinary speed. Class III patients get angina on slight exertion – like going only 100 steps. Class IV are those who get angina at rest.

How to start?
   Suppose, you are at the stage of class I angina: start walking on day one. Try to do about 30 minutes. For class II angina group, walking should be slowly and they should start initially with 10-15 minutes. They should not walk fast. Class III angina patients should start with one minute at home on empty stomach. After two days, they should increase to two minutes. Gradually they should increase the time but not the speed. As they improve with treatment, they can gradually increase their speed. Class IV angina patients should not walk and report to the allopathic doctor and take treatment.

   After a patient recovers from a heart attack, walking should start as soon as six-seven days. Start with one minute, half an hour before breakfast, before lunch and dinner. After two days increase the time to two minutes. Add another one minute after two days. Once you are at the level of 5 minutes three times a day, you can go out for walk.

Special precautions on walking:
   Heart patient should know that walking should be ideally done on empty stomach. Do not walk after meals for one hour. While you climb up or go on a steep you should go at much slower speed. Walking as a part of household activity (i.e. going from one room to other) does benefit only 10%, if the total benefit is considered 100% on proper walk. While you carry weight of more than two kilograms, the speed of walking should be slower.

Other dos and don’ts on physical activity:
   Heart patients must also know that they can do most of the activity where the heart rate does not go up. Sitting in an office, talking over the phone, discussing, driving car are some of the activities which do not increase the heart’s speed. But avoid all kinds of stresses, as stress can increase the heart’s speed and also lead to spasm of the heart tubes. When you reach class I stage, you can do all the activities except running or equivalents.
