Introduction: Recently I received a case description of a patient with stable angina pectoris (precursor to a myocardial infarction) from a Saudi Arabian cardiologist (G.S., King Faisal Hospital). The patient had been suffering for some weeks from chest pains radiating into the back, symptoms intensifying under the effects of physical and psychological stress and slowly dissipating at rest. Heavy smoker for 30 years, no specific medication to date. Refused a catheter investigation for further diagnosis and possible operation. He was willing to receive the Spirovital treatment suggested by the doctor (20 minutes daily, 5 x week). After 2 weeks significant improvement in symptoms, pain-free even under stress and on physical exertion. More energy, no longer short of breath, dark circles under the eyes had disappeared. “I feel reborn...” The subjective improvements were objectively demonstrated by accompanying HRV measurements (Figs 1-2).
