Recently, Art of Living Foundation introduced the facility of non-invasive treatment for heart diseases—called Enhanced External Counter Pulsation (EECP)—at its ashram on city outskirts
The founder of AoL Foundation, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, inaugurated the facility at the Art of Living International Centre recently.
He said EECP is one of the first allopathic treatments that do not involve invasive procedures or medication but bring about improvement in cardiac patients in a natural way.
“It works like a natural bypass,” said Dr Keshav Prasad, chief operating officer, Sri Sri Ayurveda Panchkarma, about the EECP procedure.
Dr Prasad elucidated that the treatment significantly improves blood supply to the heart muscle.
He said recent clinical evidence and trials establish that significant improvement in blood flow takes place with the help of EECP procedure. He said this has been confirmed by PET scan and angiogram.
The inauguration took place at Sri Sri Ayurveda Panchakarma, AoL’s Ayurveda and wellness spa, in collaboration with The Global Heart Foundation, Pune.
The non-invasive treatment facility will be operated by Enhanced Hearts, one of the pioneers of EECP.
Holistic heart care
The centre will focus on holistic heart care, offering specialised yet low-cost treatment through a combination of state-of-the-art EECP therapy with herbal medicines and panchakarma therapies, blending modern medicine with Ayurveda.
