Hypertrophied Obstructive Cardiomyopathy or HOCM
1. Hypertrophied Obstructive
Cardiomyopathy or HOCM is a genetic
disease which effect the conduction
system of the heart.
2. In HOCM the thickness of Inter
Ventricular Septum or IVS become
asymmetrically thickened and it obstruct
the outflow of blood through aorta
3. The obstruction of blood caused due to
the thickness of IVS near the aorta
increase the pressure inside the heart. So
the pressure inside the heart may even go
to 170 mmHg or more. Above 70 mmHg is
severe but above 100 mmHg is fatal.
4. Along with above conditions the
thickness of IVS lead to scarcity of blood
to the myocardium of IVS reagion. So the
conduction system will be more affected
and may lose the conduction of impulse
from the nodes for the beat.
5. The symptoms include the frequent
black outs mostly when in climbing steps,
giddiness, breathing related issues, more
heart beat or palpitations, irregular heart
beat, chest heaviness, lethargy, body pain
6. The solution for this is heart
transplantation, keeping ICD, Alcohol
abalation. But all these are not give long
7.The complication of this disease is
sroke. There is high risk of low volume
blood inside the Left Ventricle to supply for
other body parts. So other systems also
will be affected by this. Mainly brain get
low volume of blood or high chance of
thrombus or clot formation.
8. Ayurheart treat for this condition from
the root. In first stage we reduce the
thickness of the hypertrophied IVS . Within
one or two course itself the gradient which
was above 100mmHg will come below.
Slowly the gradient come to below
S50mmHg. Then the treatment will give
more importantance to the conduction
system. That part take time to get the
changes in ECG.
9.Most interesting part of this treatment is
that, we take echo from first course or
after 45 days. The gradient would have
come more down in most of the patients.
If it come below 70 mmHg, the risk of this
disease will be reduced
10. The sympytomatically patient improve
in first 21 days itself. They can go for their
work and take medicine. No need of
hospital stay. They can take medicine from
their home without much food restrictions.
11. The routine exercise must be avoided
by the patient upto the thickness reduces
in certain level. Otherwise there is chance
of collapse or heart failure irrespective of
on treatment or not. There is patients who
come after keeping ICD, because it wont
reduce the thickness of IVS and the
