What is EECP? Enhanced External Counter Pulsation EECP

What is EECP?

Enhanced External Counter Pulsation EECP

For people with angina or heart failure, even simple activities — such as going to the mailbox or walking the dog — can be challenging.

If you are one of these people, take heart. There is a non-invasive treatment called EECP® Therapy that clinical experience has shown to be safe and to have benefit for the treatment of angina and heart failure. Approximately 80% of patients who complete the 35-hour course of EECP® Therapy experience significant symptom relief that may last up to three years.

EECP® Therapy is an outpatient treatment for angina and heart failure. Treatments are usually given for an hour each day, five days a week, for a total of 35 hours. During the treatment, you lie on a comfortable treatment table with large blood pressure-like cuffs wrapped around your legs and buttocks. These cuffs inflate and deflate at specific times between your heartbeats. A continuous electro cardiogram (ECG) is used to set the timing so the cuffs inflate while the heart is at rest, when it normally gets its supply of blood and oxygen. The cuffs deflate at the end of that rest period, just before the next heart beat. The special sensor applied to your finger checks the oxygen level in your blood and monitors the pressure waves created by the cuff inflations and deflations.

Get A Bangin’
Fit Booty

Whether you want a bangin’ booty like Beyonce or enviable buns like Jessica Biel, the only way you’re going to get the gluteus of your dreams is by getting your sweat on. Cornel Chin, fitness troubleshooter to the stars and author of Celebrity Body on a Budget, recommends the following five butt exercises to get a fit — and camera-worthy — derriere.

1. Unilateral Hip Extension

Start position: Place your left knee on the bottom of an incline bench. Bend your elbows and place your forearms across the top of the bench so they support your body weight. Keep your core muscles engaged, and don’t let your back arch.

Movement: Slowly raise your right leg as high as comfortably possible, keeping it straight throughout the move. Contract your glutes and then slowly lower your right leg, returning back to the start position.

Perform: Do 1 set of 12 to 15 repetitions with your right leg then repeat the exercise with your left leg.

Chin says: As you get stronger, increase the number of sets and/or add ankle weights for more resistance



Unilateral Hip Extension

2. One-legged deadlifts

Start position: Extend your left leg back slightly, lightly resting on the toes of your left foot. Hold a dumbbell in each hand in front of the thighs.

Movement: Hinge from your hips and lower the weights towards the floor as low as your flexibility allows. Keep your back flat or with a natural arch and ensure you keep your abs contracted to protect your back. Squeeze your glutes of the working leg to raise back up.

Perform: Do 1 set of 10 to 12 reps with your left leg back then repeat the exercise with your right leg back.

Chin says: Deadlifts are highly effective for your glutes, lower back and hamstrings, but this single-legged version is ideal to add intensity to the exercise and engage your stabilizer muscles to keep your body balanced. Form is paramount and you should avoid this exercise if you have back problems.

One-legged deadlifts


3. Lunges

Start position: Stand tall with your feet hip-distance apart, hands on your hips.

Movement: Step your right foot forward and lower your body towards the floor while keeping your back up straight. You’ll be bending both of your knees; the right knee should be at a 90 degree angle (if it isn’t, step your right foot further forward, aiming to keep your knee over your ankle when you lower down) while your left knee lowers towards the floor.

Perform: Do 2 to 3 sets of 12 to 15 reps on each leg.

Chin says: This is such a dynamic exercise as it recruits so many muscles at the same time. What’s also great about lunges is the many variations: front lunges, walking lunges, reverse lunges, side to side lunges and wheel lunges (front, side, reverse). You can also elevate the back foot on a step or platform for a tougher workout on both legs.

4. Step Ups

Start position: Place your right foot on a step or platform of at least 12 to 15 inches high. Make sure your knee is bent at a 90 degree angle (knee above ankle) for safety.

Movement: Pushing through your right heel on the platform, straighten your right leg as you bring your left toe up to the step or platform. Lower your left foot down slowly, barely touching the toes of your left foot to the floor.

Perform: Do 2 to 3 sets of 12 to 15 reps on each leg.

Chin says: This is a popular tried and tested exercise that really targets the glutes. You’ll notice the difference when you take it slow and concentrate on the working leg.

Step Ups

5. Squats

Start position: Stand with feet hip-width apart, folding your arms across your chest. Keep your feet flat but place your weight on your heels.

Movement: Hinge at the hips and bend your knees as you sit your rear back as if a chair is behind you. Keep your back straight, abdominal muscles tight, and knees behind your toes as you lower down. Squeeze your glutes to straighten up and return to start position.

Perform: Repeat for 2 to 3 sets of 12 to 15 reps. As you get stronger, add weights or resistance bands for more intensity.

Chin says: Good old traditional squats are simply one of the best exercises you can do for your butt, thighs and hips. There are several variations of squats, ranging from standard squats with your feet hip-width apart or with the use of a chair or bench to act as a marker when squatting. Add dumbbells, resistance bands and core boards, and you will stimulate your glutes and other target areas even more.

Naturally Treat Fibrocystic Breast Disease

Naturally Treat Fibrocystic Breast Disease

By: Diane Quinn

Fibrocystic breast disease is a very common, noncancerous condition among women. Characterized by the presence of movable lumps and breast swelling, this condition can be very painful. One of the main causes of this disease is fluctuating hormonal levels, especially during menstruation.

The good news is that this condition is curable. There are effective ways to naturally treat fibrocystic breast disease.

Foods that promote good breast health

Eating a low-calorie, overall healthy diet helps. When you add more vegetables and fruits to your diet, you add rich, natural sources for vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Think green leafy vegetables and cruciferous vegetables (in the cabbage family) like broccoli, Brussels sprouts and kale.

Research has shown that eating cruciferous vegetables elevates levels of good estrogen in your body while at the same time fighting bad estrogen that can cause fibrocystic breast disease. This unique interaction regulates your hormonal activity.

Adding high-fiber foods to your diet also promotes breast health. Whole-grain foods such as wheat brain, barley and oats all work together in a healthy diet to naturally treat fibrocystic breast disease by preventing it from occurring in the first place.

Foods that may cause fibrocystic breast disease

During periods of premenstrual syndrome (PMS), most women crave unhealthy foods rich in sugar and fat. Too often the snack foods they consume contain harmful trans fats and saturated fats that are unhealthy for everyone, but worse for women suffering from fibrocystic breast disease. If you read food labels more carefully, you can learn to eliminate the harmful fats and consume foods that contain good fats, like omega-3 fatty acids. At mealtime this means more fish and less red meat.

One of the hardest habits for many women to break is their caffeine fix. If you wonder how you could possibly start your day without at least two cups of java, you fall into this group. Yet caffeine is your enemy if you suffer from fibrocystic breast disease and want to promote good breast health. Try to replace your coffee habit with low-caffeine teas like green and flavorful herbal blends. Additionally, find a way to win your battle against chocolate cravings.

Sweetened, carbonated beverages should also be avoided because they can exacerbate fibrocystic breast disease.

Natural ways to treat fibrocystic breast disease

One very simple suggestion when experiencing pain is to use a warm heating pad. Another is to wear a bra designed to give your breasts adequate support and protection when the symptoms of fibrocystic breast disease cause discomfort.

A natural way to treat fibrocystic breast disease is boosting your diet with vitamins A, complex B, E, and selenium supplements. Maintaining a healthy weight is also important for good breast health. Some women find that the use of evening primrose oil, flax seed or fish oils offers them therapeutic benefits because these products also promote liver cleansing.

If you don’t have the disease, but know that it runs in your family, you might want to make the changes recommended to naturally treat fibrocystic breast disease, because these may prove to be effective preventative measures. Additionally, if you begin to notice symptoms of this disease, make an appointment with your doctor to get a professional diagnosis and rule out a more serious problem.
