Background: Coronary artery disease is one of the most common causes of death in the world. Despite significant advances in the diagnosis and treatment of these diseases, they are still considered a major health problem in the world. The purpose of this report is to provide the clinical experience of Iranian Integrative Medicine, which has the greatest therapeutic effect in the shortest period of time.
Case Presentation: A 53-year-old man suddenly experienced persistent chest pain, six hours prior to his visit. This pain increased until his admission to the emergency department. Then, he was diagnosed with acute coronary syndrome and unstable angina. He was transferred to cardiac care, where he was treated for 4 days. The patient received coronary artery angiography at the time and by diagnosis of cardiovascular obstruction, he was chosen as an angioplasty candidate willingly submitting his surgical intervention to another time. The patient was placed under health and nutrition measures after entering the traditional medicine clinic one month after his discharge. Based on his temperament and condition of the disease, drug treatment in this patient included herbs, combined medications and modern cardiac drugs. Hand applications included a complete overhang on the back every night until the end of the healing and leech therapy. Leech therapy was applied on the ankle of the left leg and the forearm of the left arm. After a week, the patient completed the examination and leech therapy was applied on his chest (on the anatomical shadow of the heart). This process was carried out 5 times. The patient underwent angiography for 40 days after treatment, according to his clinical report, and the patient’s vascular obstruction improved. The patient’s condition was followed for 3 years and no recurrence was observed.
Conclusion: Considering the patient’s recovery process regarding physical strength, mental status, and removal of coronary artery bypass grabs, it seems that the combination of modern medicine and traditional medicine in Iran might help the treatment of many common diseases, including coronary heart disease. This necessitates extensive assessments in various diseases based on the teachings of the school of medicine.
