Bill PaxtonALT="Bill Paxton; died after open-heart-surgery; Global Cardio Care", an American celebrity and actor, died February 25, 2017 from a stroke and complications after open-heart surgery. The actor, well known for his roles in the Titanic, Apollo 13, and Aliens, was 61-years-old.

CEO Sara Soulati, a national authority on Enhanced External Counterpulsation (EECP), suggests that people faced with a choice to undergo open-heart surgery have an alternative.

EECP Is Alternative To Open-Heart Surgery

Since 2002, when Sara Soulati launched Global Cardio Care and has worked alongside physicians since 1996 in the world of EECP, she has seen dozens of people choose EECP instead of open-heart surgery.

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.

Since 2002, Global Cardio Care Centers, the physician practice dedicated to EECP, has delivered thousands of hours of EECP to people with angina pectoris (chest pain), diabetes, stroke, coronary artery disease, congestive heart failure, peripheral vascular disease, and much more.

Often, people share experiences about enrolling in the Sara Soulati Health for Life Program and the Sara Soulati EECP Method (that combines the program and EECP therapy).

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.

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 and disease prevention program Sara Soulati invented.

Was Bill Paxton’s Death Avoidable?

Bill Paxton’s 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 have benefited from EECP and the patent-pending Sara Soulati Health for Life program.

EECP acts like a second heart pumping when yours is at rest, and it’s also passive exercise.

People who are victims of stroke have used EECP to ease the symptoms of stroke because the pumping and pulsing mechanism of EECP helps circulate blood to organs and throughout the arterial system. While each case is different, people have seen their symptoms of stroke alleviated with several courses of EECP.

So, was Bill Paxton’s death avoidable?
