Bill Paxton, an American celebrity and actor, unexpectedly died from a stroke directly following complications from open-heart surgery. He passed February 25, 2017, a day before the Oscar’s at a very young age. He wrote his director in an email that he was nervous for the surgery, but that he would be ‘reporting for duty’ as he was playing the role of a military hero for an upcoming movie.
EECP Is Alternative To Open Heart Surgery
Sara Soulati is CEO of Global Cardio Care and inventor of the patent-pending Sara Soulati Health for Life Program. She is a national authority on Enhanced External Counterpulsation (EECP), an alternative therapy to open-heart surgery. She suggests that EECP is a choice people should consider when facing the extremely invasive heart bypass procedure that is executed once blockages are found in the arteries.
Since 2002, Sara Soulati has been working alongside physicians at Global Cardio Care, Inc. and Global Cardio Care Centers. Together, they educated and deliver EECP to hundreds and hundreds of people. Over the years, Sara has seen dozens of people choose EECP instead of open-heart surgery. The result is remarkable. Many avoid the surgical procedure and live a healthy life without chest pain. While each person’s experience is different, Sara Soulati suggests that lifestyle modification is the answer to prevention and reversal of cardiovascular disease.
EECP is FDA cleared and non-invasive. It is a safe therapy that actually acts like a natural bypass. EECP requires people to lie on the EECP bed with cuffs, that act like blood-pressure cuffs, wrapped around calves, thighs and buttocks. They are hooked to an EKG, and when the heart pumps, the EECP cuffs deflate; when the heart rests, the EECP cuffs inflate.
Essentially, when there is a blockage in an artery, the mechanism of EECP squeezes and pulses oxygenated blood from the lower extremities upwards toward the heart, naturally bypassing the blockage and forming new collaterals for the blood to flow around the blockage. This is called angiogenesis, and it is clinically proven.
During EECP, the lining of the arteries produce and secrete hormones called vasodilators and nitrous oxide. These hormones help the endothelium (lining of the arterial wall) become elastic and supple. Blood circulates easier throughout the arterial system due to the pulsation mechanism of EECP.
EECP is helpful for people with angina pectoris (chest pain), diabetes, stroke, coronary artery disease, congestive heart failure, peripheral vascular disease, and much more. EECP has been known to reduce hypertension, improve effects of erectile dysfunction, help with vision, stamina, endurance, weight loss, and quality of life in a variety of areas.
Sara Soulati EECP Method
When people come to Global Cardio Care Centers or Global Cardio Care West Los Angeles, they enroll in the Sara Soulati Health for Life Program alongside EECP. This combined lifestyle medicine program is the Sara Soulati EECP Method. She created this patent-pending Health for Life program to teach people about the benefits of plant-based nutrition, moderate exercise and the importance of EECP therapy as a lifestyle.
Everyone has the power to control what they eat. When salt is reduced, animal flesh is eliminated, fresh fruits and produce are the only items on the plate, and other toxins are reduced or eliminated, that’s when the body says thank you, and the arteries become clean of blockage-causing plaque. With EECP, a second heart pumping, squeezing and circulating blood throughout the organs, that is when reversal of heart disease can occur and prevention of disease becomes the answer.
The Global Cardio Care YouTube channel provides a sampling of stories from people from all walks of life who have benefited from EECP and the lifestyle modification program Sara Soulati invented.
Was Bill Paxton’s Death Avoidable?
The general public will never know if Bill Paxton’s died unnecessarily. His family, physicians and surgeon are the only ones who can answer this question.
If Mr. Paxton had a history of cardiovascular disease, then he may very well have benefited from EECP and the patent-pending Sara Soulati Health for Life program. He could have come in for 35 hours of EECP and then repeat the course of the therapy as long as he needed it. EECP promotes angiogenesis, the opening of new collaterals for blood flow around blockages. Certainly, knowing about this clinically proven procedure may have given Bill Paxton an option to consider beyond open-heart surgery.
We grieve for your loss, Mr. Paxton.
