Post MD he worked at the famous All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) for six years (1989-1995) as a Senior Resident and as an Assistant Professor. He also got training in Yoga Therapy. His research at the AIIMS showed that not only heart patients could prevent Coronary Heart Disease but can also reverse or cure heart disease. Dr. Chhajer, during this period also got trained by Dr. Dean Ornish, who pioneered the lifestyle treatment in USA and proved Reversal of Heart Disease by his Lifestyle Heart Trial to the medical science.
In 1995 based on his past research Dr. Bimal Chhajer resigned from the AIIMS and started practically training and treating heart patients by his new treatment called "SAAOL" Science and Art of Living.
In 1997 Dr. Chhajer opened his second clinic in Mumbai and in due course of time in Kolkata, Chennai, Bangalore and Hyderabad. His head office is situated in Vikram Vihar in Lajpat Nagar of South Delhi.
Today his brainchild "SAAOL Heart Program" is a widely accepted treatment program for Reversing Heart Disease - where in addition to the allopathic medicines patients are taught Yoga, Meditation, Zero Oil Cooking, Stress Management, Exercises and Medical Knowledge.

He has been traveling all over India and World to promote non-invasive mode of treatment. He also publishes 3 monthly magazines on Heart Care.
To further pursue preventive cardiology and to fight against the extensive use of invasive cardiology Dr. Chhajer has recently started two more non-invasive treatments in his center. These are called "PAN Bypass" (called in short form "Natural Bypass") and "Biochemical Angioplasty". Both are very effective and non-invasive procedures, both are time tested, cheap and without any side effects. Both can be practiced along with his lifestyle program- "Saaol Heart Program" to make the treatment of coronary heart disease complete.
