ECP THERAPY? Yes, heart surgery is not your only option!

What is ECP ?

ECP therapy is a safe, non-invasive, outpatient treatment option for people suffering from ischemic heart diseases such as angina and with either systolic or diastolic heart failure. ECP® has helped hundreds of thousands of patients around the world. Clinical studies show over 75% of patients benefit from ECP Therapy with sustained improvement up to three years post-treatment. While an individual is undergoing ECP, pneumatic cuffs are applied on the legs and are connected to a computer that monitors the heart rate and rhythm. The cuffs are timed to inflate and deflate based on the individual’s electrocardiogram. The cuffs inflate at the beginning of diastole and deflate at the beginning of systole. Since it increases pressure in the aorta while the heart is relaxing (during diastole) ECP increases blood flow into the coronary arteries, which serves to mechanically open up semi-blocked coronary arteries

Here’s the Million Dollar Question 
Is surgery my only option? 
Dr. John Kirklin, a heart surgeon at Mayo Clinic, USA, has this to say: 
“Surgery is always second best. If you can do something else, it’s better.” 
Here at Spectrum of Life (SOL) , you do have an option to do something else for your aching heart and circulatory system: the External Counter Pulsation (ECP) therapy. 
For starters, ECP is truly non- invasive — 100% no needles and pricking.

ECP Therapy + Clinical Hypnotherapy = Better quality of life
Stress management techniques could reduce deaths and disability from heart attacks according to BBC News. At Spectrum of Life (SOL) Proactive Healthcare Centre, our clinical hypnotherapy service + ECP therapy will help you improve the quality of your life.
