From Dr. Atkins' New Diet Revolution (by Robert C. Atkins, M.D.)
Page 312. "Enhanced External Counter Pulsation (EECP). If you have diagnosed heart problems and a positive stress test, EECP is used to create collateral blood vessels supplying the heart muscle. Sometimes called a "natural bypass," EECP uses blood pressure cuffs applied to the patient's legs, which are repeatedly inflated and deflated, to force blood up from the legs to the heart. It has been government tested and funded, is currently being administered at four hundred sites in the United States and is reimbursed by health insurers. I strongly recommend it for our heart patients, so much so that the cardiology unit at the Atkins Center for Complementary Medicine provides about one hundred EECP treatments weekly."
