The most SHOCKING moment at the Oscars wasn’t the irritating lefty speeches… and it wasn’t even the big screw-up at the end.
No, all that’s par for the course when dealing with Hollywood.
The REAL shocker came when they announced 61-year-old movie star Bill Paxton had died just 24 hours before the event.
Life sure comes at you fast!
One day, you’re a seemingly young and healthy action hero with roles in Aliens, Twister, Titanic, and Apollo 13 on your credits list.
The next, they’re mourning you at the Oscars.
Paxton died due to complications from what was described as a “routine” surgery — and no matter how you feel about the Hollywood elite, that should be a wakeup call for all of us regular Jacks, too.
If a millionaire movie star can’t get through routine surgery in one piece, what chance do the rest of us have?
Well, friend, that’s what I’m here for.
I’m here to give you a fighting chance – because while it’s not yet clear what killed Paxton, it IS clear that too many people walk into hospitals for everyday operations and never walk back out.
So, whatever happened to HIM could happen to YOU… unless you take a few moments to learn some basic safety tips that no doctor will warn you about.
The biggest tip of all is to make sure you even need that “routine” heart surgery in the first place – because you might not.
Some greedy surgeons are ALWAYS pushing patients into the OR… not because they’re trying to save as many lives as they can.
They’re trying to cash as many checks as they can!
If it’s not an emergency, take some time to get information. Seek the advice of a cardiac interventionist, who may be able to help you avoid surgery or at least offer a less invasive treatment.
Heck, you might not even need THAT, either. A naturopathic doc can help figure out if a nonsurgical treatment such as chelation can do the trick.
If you’ve done your homework and you’re absolutely sure you need to go in for that surgery, there are two extra steps you need to take.
First, make sure your doc has been around the block a few times and knows what he’s doing. Docs don’t exactly hand out resumes, so ASK about his experience.
A guy who does the procedure twice a day is a better bet than someone who does it twice a month.
And second, don’t forget the power of good nutrition to help you bounce back when you need it most. Fish oil and vitamin C are both proven to help patients come out of surgery better and recover quicker – just be sure to ask your doc first.
