MUMBAI and MELBOURNE: Dr. Rohit Sane of Sane Care's Madhavbaug clinics presented his pioneering research on a novel non-invasive herbal procedure Sampurna Hriday Shuddhikaran (SHS) in patients with Ischemic Heart Disease at World Cardiology Conference (4th - 7th May, 2014) in Melbourne, Australia. The study shows a marked improvement in exercise capacity and reduction in angina pain in patients who underwent SHS, a 6-day residential therapy.
India was estimated to account for almost 60% of the world's heart disease by 2010.1 By 2015, the number of patients with coronary heart disease is projected to be over 60 million.2 This places an inordinate amount of stress on the existing infrastructure to combat these diseases. Lack of access to the standard modern medicine treatments, their high prices and the risk of invasive procedures can deter people from getting them done.3 A possible answer to this problem can be novel, non-invasive and affordable therapies like SHS.
According to the ICMR Guidelines for Biomedical research, traditional knowledge systems like Ayurveda can prove to be a 'hidden treasure' if proven effective with modern scientific methods.4 However, reviewing the clinical researches in herbal treatment are found intertwined with huge difficulties primarily because of unavailability of published qualitative research work which is accessible.5
Dr. Sane has devised his own unique programme for treating heart diseases by creating an amalgam of Ayurveda and modern systems of medicine. Dr. Sane says, "Sampurna Hriday Shuddhikaran is a process we have created through our skill sets, using the science of pathophysiology of heart disease and procedures which might help heart disease." He explains that the SHS therapy works by improving circulation, reducing water retention, relaxing the muscles around the heart and improving its ability of contraction. As the study shows, testing SHS, amongst the parameters of modern scientific research has proven that this therapy is effective. It has the additional advantage of being cost-effective.
Dr. Dinesh Patil, a consulting cardiologist at Madhavbaug, reiterates the benefit of SHS, "I believe Ayurveda has a lot to offer to the modern practice of medicine. At Madhavbaug, Dr. Sane is continuously striving to validate these offerings and see if they stand the test of clinical trials. It is heartening to see these treatments work."
