There is no way to overestimate the importance of having a healthy heart. Your heart is the center of your being. It is what circulates blood, oxygen, water, and minerals throughout your body. When your heart suffers, the rest of your body suffers. In the worst-case scenario, you could suffer heart failure that costs you your life. It is understandable why much emphasis is put on taking preventative steps to keep your heart healthy. If you are battling with heart disease and you want to find a safe and effective way to manage it in the Gainesville area, you may be interested in learning about ECP therapy.
ECP therapy is growing in popularity among individuals who are looking for a good way to control their heart disease. The reason why this treatment is so popular is because of how phenomenal the results it produces can be. This therapy is able to help minimize some of the symptoms you may experience with heart disease through the creation of collateral blood vessels.
The creation of collateral blood vessels means that there are additional paths for the blood to take to your heart. This allows the blood to bypass any blockage you may have in your blood vessels. The more blood that is able to reach your heart, the more oxygenated blood your body will have. This makes managing heart disease a lot easier.
After this therapy, many people have been able to reduce the amount of medication they take, and they’ve been able to increase the number of physical activities that they have been able to participate in. What is great is that these individuals have been able to participate in these increased physical activities without feeling worn-out and without feeling exhausted. The amount of pain they have in their chest dissipates and their overall life experience is a lot better.
ECP therapy is not a one-time thing. For the treatment to work properly, you will need to have it performed five consecutive days a week for seven weeks. While this might seem like a lot of time devoted to the therapy, the results that it produces usually make the time spent worth it.
When used to help prevent heart failure, this therapy can really go a long way. You can learn more about how it works during a consultation at the office of Dr. James DeStephens in Gainesville. Contact us today to book your appointment!
