Insights from the Heart

Featured Articles

Explore Dr. Indranill Basu Ray’s written works, where he delves into contemporary issues in cardiology, the science behind yoga’s healing powers, and the future of integrative medicine.

In a fast-paced world where stress and lifestyle diseases are unavoidable, incorporating yoga into your daily routine can be a game-changer for your overall well-being. The way I see it, yoga isn’t just about bending and stretching; it’s a holistic practice that harmonizes the body, mind and spirit. This ancient Indian practice has evolved over millennia but remains rooted in fostering inner peace and physical vitality. For the common man, this means having an accessible tool for enhancing health without needing specialized equipment or gyms.

Heart failure (HF) is a pervasive and growing health issue worldwide. It affects approximately 64 million people globally. The numbers are on the rise due to ageing populations and the increasing prevalence of contributing diabetes. Heart failure doesn’t just affect the heart; it impacts a person’s entire life, making everyday activities challenging and diminishing overall quality of life. Patients in their final stage are restricted by severe breathlessness on even minimal or no exertion, accumulation of fluids inside the body, and finally die due to mechanical failure of the heart. This growing epidemic emphasizes the urgent need for innovative treatments like Cardiac Contractility Modulation (CCM). Dr. Indranill Basu-Ray, an Indian-American cardiologist and cardiac electrophysiologist based in Memphis performed one of the early CCMs in the world.
