‘Heart diseases, diabetes curable without drugs and surgery’
Sunday, 01 June 2008

No angiogram, no operation needed anymore to heal a patient who suffers from a critical heart disease like blockage in the coronary artery, physicians claimed, reports agency.

Another serious disease, diabetes, is also reversible through lifestyle changes, needing no medicine, they said.

Dr Gobinda Chandra Das, Head of the Dept. of Allergy and Clinical Immunology of Shaheed Suhrawardy Hospital & Programme Director of the Coronary Artery Disease Prevention and Regression Program, said 50 coronary artery blockage patients are getting treatment by lifestyle change at his CAD-PR Centre clinic at Panthapath in the capital.

“All the patients are feeling much better and improving day by day,” Dr Gobinda told UNB Staff Writer Sajedul Islam. The lifestyle change involves dietary habit changes, stress-free techniques yoga, pranayam and meditation.

The critical heart patients who got benefits by changing lifestyle initially could not believe their health problems could be reversed, he said. The coronary artery blockage patients came to his CAD-PR Centre with mostly multiple artery blockages. One patient named Asalatujjaman, 59, worked in the Railway Services.

After doing angiogram in the ICVD, it was found out that all of his three main arteries were blocked severely: one 100 percent and another two 99 and 90 percent. He was unable to say his prayer even in standing position and doctors advised him bypass surgery.

They also told him that his operation would be critical. After joining CAD-PR Program within a month, he is not only fit for performing prayer in the standing position but even he can walk two kms without any chest pain.

Another patient, Sona Mia, had bypass operation in Bangalore, India, about four years back. After the bypass surgery, he was ok for three years, but for the last one year, again he has been feeling chest pain.

And after doing angiogram, it was found that, in the meantime, he has developed two more blocks. His financial condition was not so good and hence he was unable to go for any further surgical intervention. He felt chest pain everyday and could not sleep properly.

But, after joining the CAD-PR program within a month, he never again feels any chest pain and can now sleep a sound sleep at night. Dr. Gobinda Das said that unhealthy diet, mental tension, emotional disturbances, stresses and strains in life are the number- one risk factor for heart disease. Individuals suffering from heart diseases can reverse their sufferings by yoga, pranayam, meditation, lifestyle change and controlling risk factors.

Angioplasty or bypass surgery is generally advised for coronary heart diseases. But it has side-effects and is costly too. Moreover, heart problems reappear within several years.

“Life force of a man is virtually reduced to half after surgery,” said the innovative physician. He said the two mortal diseases can be reversed and patients can regain their health using the natural system of treatment scientifically proven capable of reversing heart diseases without drugs and surgery.

Another physician, Dr Anwar Hossain, Chairman of Standard Bio-Nutrition, also claimed success in reversing some cases of heart diseases and diabetes. He said 200 diabetes and 10 heart patients have so far been cured with the help of natural treatment system.

Dr Anwar said Dr Dean Ornish, a heart specialist and Professor and head of Cardiology department of California University, has developed the system of natural treatment in a major medical breakthrough.

Dr Ornish proved that if a more healthy potent diet is followed along with other lifestyle changes, plaques would not only stop growing, they would “actually start reversing or dissolving”.

He demonstrated that diabetes, hypertension or high blood pressure, strokes, arthritis, impotence are related to same malnutrition problem.

These are also reversible with proper healthy diets and changes in comprehensive lifestyle. In the last 25 years, Dr Ornish and his colleagues have conducted a series of studies demonstrating that Reversal Diet (Omega-3 and full fat soy) can reverse the progression of even severe cardiac diseases in most people.

They demonstrated in hospitals across the United States how to safely avoid bypass surgery or angioplasty by following this diet combined with moderate exercise, stress management, techniques and participation in health camps and seminars.

Dr Ornish in 1990 took 1,800 heart patients, who were earlier prescribed to undergo bypass surgery, and provided them treatment, telling that they would no longer be required to undergo bypass surgery.

The American physician said that it is not possible to reverse the two diseases with the help of drugs and surgery, because these have side-effects and can never bring a permanent cure.

Dr Anwar said, “Our heart and diabetes patients are denied proper medical treatment despite spending huge amounts of money. Rather, they are made lifelong patients after the use of drugs and surgery.”

Along with food-habit change, Omega-3 invented by Dr Dean Ornish has brought about a sea change for heart patients across the world. Combination of yoga, change of food habit and use of Omega-3 are helpful for curing heart.

Dr Anwar Hossain lamented that huge amounts of money are spent in the country in the name of treatment of heart diseases and diabetes with little results.

Citing a health report of the World Health Organization, Dr Anwar said that Bangladesh is one of South Asian countries likely to be capital or centre stage of diabetes and heart diseases in the next decade.

He said 10 out of 15 main reasons responsible for diabetes and heart diseases are associated with regular food habit. “Regular intake of food creates blood pressure in our body and it gradually enhances the risk of heart diseases.

Hence, changing food habit is necessary to keep our body free from the diseases.” Dr Anwar called upon the media to raise awareness about the natural system of treatment so that it can be introduced in the country for the benefit of the people.
