Dr. Abdul Kalam, President of India
"The ideal practice should be to provide only the minimum essential treatment instead of going in for surgical intervention as a routine management of the disease."
 
 Dr. Sibia:
All surgery should be preserved for patients with crippling disease who do not respond to more conservative treatments and we should think of surgery only when all other safer treatments fail.

ACT
ARTERY CLEARANCE THERAPY THINKING BEYOND BYPASS
Preventing and Reversing Heart Disease
Technical knowhow and training from Arterial Disease Clinic, London (UK)

New alternatives to Bypass Surgery with American College for Advancement of Medicine (ACAM) protocol. available worldwide - USA, Europe, Asia, Australia, Africa.

The treatment millions of heart patinets with chronic angina chest pain prefer to avoid bypass surgery.

What is Artery Clearance Therapy (ACT)?

ACT is non-operative treatment of angina chest pain to increase blood flow to the heart to avoid bypass and to treat post bypass angina pain with Chelation Therapy along with Lifestyle management, antioxidants and nutrients.

How is ACT done?

ACT prevents and reverses heart disease. It includes EDTA chelation therapy which is safe, comfortable intravenous drip medication as recommended by American College for Advancement in Medicine. In ACT medicines are given in intravenous drip each lasting 2½ to 3 hours. Usually 20 to 30 drips are given two or three times a week in 6 to 15 weeks. Patients can also have two drips on consecutive days every week.

Which patients can benefit by ACT?

Heart patients of Angina chest pain and Myocardial Infarction (Heart Attack) -

* With failed angioplasty or bypass
* Who are not fit for angioplasty or bypass
* Who do not benefit by medicines.
* Who do not want angioplasty or bypass

ACT is also beneficial in:

* Pain legs due to Peripheral Artery Disease
* Cerebral ischaemia with memory/mental deficiency
* Cerebral thrombosis /embolism caused paresis
* Chronic Fatigue (Tiredness) Syndrome
* Decreased sexual functioning
* To increase sports performance
* For detoxification and anti-ageing

How does the patient know he has improved?

Patients have improve quality of life. They feel better, and test better, have less frequency and intensity of chest pain and discomfort, breath better, can walk longer distance and require less medication. They have increased energy, work capacity, memory, mental ability, sexual performance, less fatigue and pain legs and improved general looks and skin colour.

Will angiography, Cardiovascular Cartography and Stress Thallium show the improvement?

Improvement with ACT and ECP can be assessed with Cardiovascular Cartography (CCG) or Stress Thallium as they document the blood flow. Please note that blood flow is not proportionate to the degree of stenosis in blood vessel as is usually presumed. Angiography assesses the patency and stenosis in three big blood vessels and their major branches but is not suitable for visualizing the millions of smaller blood vessels and capillaries, nor for assessing the overall blood flow to the heart muscle which is what ultimately matters.

 

CARDIOVASCULAR CARTOGRAPHY (CCG)

Pre ACT and ECP CCG Post ACT and ECP CCG

STRESS THALLIUM

Less blood flow before ACT/ECP More blood flow after ACT/ECP

What is the success rate of ACT?

ACT benefits about 80 to 90 out of 100 patients.

How does ACT increase the micro-circulation?

ACT improves coronary blood flow by removing calcium from blood vessel walls and the plaques that contain 70% calcium, 23% lipids and 7% other material. It also removes heavy metal pollutants, the cause of free radical formation that lead to plaque formation. Chelation detoxifies the body leading to healthier life and is part of anti-ageing programs in many countries.

Is ACT possible in patients having Diabetes, High Blood pressure, Thyroid problem, etc?

Yes, ACT is possible in patients with most diseases.

Is ACT possible before bypass or in failed bypass?

Yes, ACT can be done before angioplasty and bypass and also in failed angiography and bypass.

Are Angioplasty and Bypass not good options?

As surgery is not successful in every patient and has risk, hence surgery should be preserved for patients not responding to safe non-surgical treatments. The life of the stent and bypass are limited and repeat stent and bypass are less safe and not always possible.

What are the advantages of ACT?

ACT works very well before or after bypss in Coronary Artery Disease causing Angina. It works on all blood vessels not only on single isolated lesion thus softening thew hardened narrowed blood vessels. Further it is effective in small vessel diffuse disease which are non amniable to other procedures. As surgery is not successful in every patient and has risk, hence surgery should be preserved for patients not responding to safe non-surgical treatments. The life of the stent and bypass are limited and repeat stent and bypass are less safe and not always possible.

What if ACT fails in any case?

If ACT fails External Counter Pulsation (ECP/EECP), angioplasty and Bypass are still possible.

How can the benefit of ACT be enhanced?

ACT benefit can be enhanced with External Counter Pulsation (ECP), heart specific diet, good life style and proper medication.

How is the acceptance of ACT by patients?

It is very well accepted by patients. What is the present status of ACT? Lifestyle, nutrients and antioxidants are well accepted world over. EDTA Chelation is off label use of FDA (USA) approved medicines using American College for Advancement in Medicine protocol and guidelines. It is accepted by National Health Services (NHS) in UK and is available in over 2000 clinics in America and many in Canada, England, France, Germany, Australia, Italy, Switzerland, Netherlands, and Spain etc. It is a patient proven therapy and millions world over have reported benefit with this treatment.

 

Linus Pauling, the only scientist to receive two unshared Nobel Prizes wrote: Chelation is far safer and much less expensive than surgery. EDTA chelation therapy makes good sense to me as a chemist and medical researcher.It has a rational scientific basis, and the evidence for clinical benefit seems to be quite strong. Metallic ions play an important role in the formation of atherosclerotic plaque and EDTA removes then with relative safety and without surgery. Published research and extensive clinical experience shows that EDTA helps to reduce and prevent atherosclerotic plaques thus improving blood flow to the heart and other organs. The scientific evidence indicates that a course of EDTA chelation therapy might eliminate the need for bypass surgery.

Mrs. and Dr. Sibia with John Buckley, Director. Arterial Disease Clinics, UK. One of world's best Chelation Centres.
Evidence:
Journal of Advancement in Medicine:

Analysis of 2,870 patients treated with chelation therapy showed marked improvement in 76.9% and good in 17% having ischemic heart disease. Marked improvement occurred in 91% and good in 8% patients with peripheral vascular disease and intermittent claudication. In patients with cerebrovascular and other degenerative cerebral diseases 24% had marked improvement and 30% had good improvement.
