In the U.S., Coronary Heart Disease (CHD) kills one person every minute. The most common cardiovascular disease in the Western world and responsible for about half of heart disease related deaths. CHD claims more than 700,000 American lives each year, accounting for 29% of all deaths in the U.S. and costing the nation $193.8 billion per year.
Lloyd-Jones D, et al, Heart disease and stroke statistics--2009 update: a report from the American Heart Association Statistics Committee and Stroke Statistics Subcommittee, Circulation 2009;119(3):e21-181].
CHD can result in a reduced blood supply to the heart (ischaemia). This occurs primarily as a consequence of atherosclerotic blockage in the walls of the aorta and 2 main coronary arteries that supply oxygen and nutrients to the heart muscle.
American Heart Association, 2008
Since 1984, more women than men die each year of heart disease in the U.S.
How to treat CHD
Treatment for CHD is the same as for ischaemic CVD:
Statins have little benefit, have harmful side-effects and don't extend life
Attend to Diet, Lifestyle and Emotional State

General electrotherapy health benefits. Used systemically and/or locally at specific problem areas of the body, its effective application has many benefits:
|Detoxification||Wellness / Healthy aging||Pain relief|
|Relief from insomnia||Immune system restoral||Anti-Inflammatory|
|Maximizes cellular energy production||Accelerated tissue /bone
|Muscle relaxation / rehabilitation||Increased blood oxygen
There are several reasonably affordable electrotherapy devices available for personal use. The following electrotherapies are those that have received a significant amount of positive feedback:
|Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF) therapy|
|Near Infrared (NIR) class 4 laser therapy|
Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation (CES) applies specific frequency patterns to the head area, with the following benefits:
|Balances neurotransmitters||Relieves pain||Treats depression|
|Substance abuse withdrawal||Relieves insomnia||Relieve stress / anxiety|
