Coronary artery disease is the buildup of plaque in the arteries that supply oxygen-rich blood to your heart. Plaque causes a narrowing or blockage that could result in a heart attack. Symptoms include chest pain or discomfort and shortness of breath. Conventional treatment coronary artery disease are angioplasty and bypass surgery. But due to risk factors related surgery many patient look for alternative treatments for heart blockages. Following are the alternative treatment for heart blockages
- EECP: EECP in a non-invasive completely safe USA FDA approved treatment which helps in formations of collateral circulation within the heart. It helps in strengthening the heart muscle and in some patients improves the LVEF in heart failure patients. Benefits of EECP are its safe, non-invasive, without side effects so it happens to be the alternative to bypass surgery and as an alternative for angioplasty.

- CHELATION: Chelation therapy is a chemical process in which a synthetic solution—EDTA (ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid)—is injected into the bloodstream to remove heavy metals and/or minerals from the body. Chelation means “to grab” or “to bind.” When EDTA is injected into the veins, it “grabs” heavy metals and minerals such as lead, mercury, copper, iron, arsenic, aluminum, and calcium and removes them from the body. Some health professionals have also used chelation therapy to treat atherosclerosis and/or coronary artery disease , although there is not enough scientific evidence to prove that this treatment is effective. Some people believe that EDTA binds with calcium deposits (the part of plaque that obstructs the flow of blood to the heart) in the arteries, and then EDTA “cleans out” the calcium deposits from the arteries, reducing the risk of heart problems.
- MEDICAL MANAGEMENT: patient with mild coronary artery disease are medically managed as per symptoms of the patient. Patient with mild coronary artery disease are advised for lifestyle modification like diet modification. Quit smoking/tobacco/alcohol, daily yoga/meditation/walking.
