They inject an anticoagulant before they feed and that is why thins the blood. It is good for both parties, they get to feed and you get your blood thinned. However, I can bring myself to that.
The point I was making is they have collected and sell the anticoagulant so you don’t have to attach a leech, you can take it oraly, not the leech the anticoagulant that is. You get the best of modern medicine with the best of ancient medicine. NO leech, just the product the leech would give you if you had one.
Anyway, it is many of the alternatives to aspirin which is has many dangerous side effects.

Only that it works in cases where the underlying disease process is serious. I cannot prove anything about the ineffectiveness of EECP in clearing up my angina, because angina is a "subjective," not an objective criterion. There are no tests that demonstrate the presence of angina; only the presence of heart disease Read More...

I can show angiograms before and after, and I didn't think it worked for me either but the fact is it did.
If you still have a problem, you should try "Granocyte" treatments with citimines to attract the stem cells where they need to be. If I were to do EECP again, I would insist that I get Granocyte with the therapy to augment the growth factors and stem cells available to the heart for revascularization Read More...

Even the Kaiser hospitals, tried EECP for a while. They obtained some of the machines, presumably at great expense. They all but completely gave up on the program. I had 55, 1 hour treatments, at $100 per treatment, which also involved 50 miles of freeway drving and tremendous inconvenience, without the tiniest relief from my angina Read More...

and keep nitro tabs with you all the time, and when you start feeling bad, take one to stop it. It will stop the pain if you slow down and relax for just a couple of minutes.
EECP is mostly painless and non invasive and consists of pressure cuffs which moves blood from the legs and buttocks to the heart during the resting phase of the heart beat Read More...

Actually there are many blood thinners. Garlic, dark red wine, of course my favorite for effect better than aspirin is turmeric and ginger, as mentioned Arginine, dark red grape juice is effective in taken in larger amounts than wine, vitamin E, magnesium, and evening primrose oil.
"To illustrate that theory, Sinclair noted that red wines from
regions with harsher growing conditions - Spain, Chile, Argentina and Australia - contain more resveratrol than those produced where grapes are not highly stressed or dehydrated Read More...

This was followed by an angiogram and the insertion of three stents. I am now back home and the nurses and support staff and British Heart Foundation have been wonderful. I am age 61, retired and was in reasonable health before the attack, playing golf 2/3 times a week and taking other regular exercise like walking and gardening Read More...

The doctor tells me that maybe we should try to tailor some medications to suit my problem. Well that sounds fine and we start with a few new medications.
One of the meds prescribed was a drug which they also use for cancer patients. It is used in Cancer patients to inhibit vessel growth. How did I know?
I run a search on the net for information on the drug Read More...

Unlike other angina drugs, ranolazine (brand name Ranexa) does not slow the heart or lower blood pressure, says Dr Read More...
