Isaac Dakota Casados, Founder & CEO
No physician has the right to tell you that your body can't heal itself. The body is constantly trying to return to a state of homeostasis. Your body is more powerful than your doctor will ever know.Isaac Casados in a Medical Lecture, Beverly Hills, CA. Fall 2011.
Besides his pivotal role as founder and CEO, researcher, inventor, activist,and motivator, Isaac maintains the big picture for Save1Heart — providing breakthrough medical technologies and diagnostic services to physicians and patients, while redefining the state of medicine. With dynamic achievements in his youth, Isaac attended Georgetown University's School of Foreign Service.
After his grandfather was suddenly stricken with undiagnosed heart failure and required a triple bypass surgery, Isaac began to learn everything he could about the cardiovascular system, its processes, and began to identify repeated patterns in persons suffering from the disease. In searching for anything he could to help improve his grandfather's condition, he began working with leading medical specialists in central aortic pressure and the cardiovascular arterial waveform.
"My grandfather's memory is the driving force of my company. My passion remains to "save the hearts of the world" due to my ever-growing passion for a relatively preventable disease that kills millions each year. To achieve such a lofty goal requires us to save one heart at a time, thus our company's name."
In late 2009, Isaac made a landmark medical discovery, the Cardio Metabolic Incident (CMI)™, which he holds the intellectual property and patent pending ownership — literally waking him in the middle of the night. His discovery, can pinpoint the exact time (month, year, day, and time) and age when a person's metabolic functioning changed due to a catastrophic, emotional, traumatic, or stressful event, known as the CETS™ syndrome. Some call this the triggering point for the atherosclerotic gene and the beginning of the Cardio Metabolic Syndrome.
"It ultimately became clear to me: most of man's existence—his power, his creativity, his intention—is truly centered in the heart rather than the brain where so many tend to place it. A unique characteristic of the CMI is that each arterial waveform it produces is a unique biomarker, just like your signature or fingerprint, but anomalies are constant across gender, racial, age, and cultural boundaries. The CMI proved that our heart is at the core of all emotional trauma and understanding, locking these episodes deep within the left ventricle heart tissue, and causing vast cardiovascular damage. Unless we release that trapped trauma, which medicine tells us controlled by the brain, one's atherosclerotic gene remains active."
Starting with 30 test patients, Save1Heart's arterial waveform database has swelled to today's 830,000+. With continued testing, his discoveries and research verified how the Cardio Metabolic Incident™ and the Arterial Waveform could improve diagnoses and reduce clinical outcomes in relation to cardiovascular disease and trauma.
"My belief is that people do have the power to control their own health and positively affect their own health conditions — returning to a state of wellness and away from a state of disease."
Ronald J. Casados, President

After 28 years, Ron became a principal partner in a real estate firm, Eagle Nest Homes of New Mexico, growing the firm into a million dollar home building firm. After many great yers of success, he was pulled back to the insurance and estate planning industries, and serving several additional years as a corporate executive with Farmers Insurance Company and the Principal Financial Group, eventually founding his own independent and award winning agency for an additional 15 years.
As a corporate executive within the insurance industry, Ron learned the skills of assembling productive teams and how to inspire them to strive for their highest goals.
Observing his father's challenges with heart issues guided him to partner with his son Isaac.
"I helped people accumulate, protect, and distribute their wealth after their death, and today my shift is to allows others to 'die young as late as possible."
Ron does everything from the heart and is in love with people. He feels divinely driven to develop teams to accomplish the company's mission to inform, educate, and breakdown stereotypes. One of his favorite words is "disruptive" thinking, disruptive technology, disruptive methods—procedures that he believes are essential to shaking up the status quo—changing the world—his creed for Save1Heart.
"I always look for skilled people who are a "fit" to help Save1Heart attain its highest goals. Many are called but few are chosen. My business philosophy remains: spirit first, then family, and successful business follows."If Ron identifies you as one of those people that can be part of bringing his endeavor to fruition, he makes you his family, regardless of gender, age, or ethnicity.

"Each step of my life has been challenging, a learning experience and opportunity to be able to look across a field or room and know I helped put the smile on a face I was looking at."
When Joselle's husband, Roger, had heart issues she felt drawn to really understand what she was being told by her husband and others. Joselle became interested in the benefits of supplementing our daily nutrition and the problems with being on specific prescription medications or ingesting foods that are harmful to the vascular system.
Joselle decided to take classes on blood morphology and from there became interested in the complete vascular system and how it's affected by each person's lifestyle. At this point the connection was made with Isaac & Ron Casados. To make a long story short, Joselle added training in the understanding of vascular testing and is certified to conduct testing that is then diagnosed by the Save1Heart diagnostic physicians.
Joselle has always been proactive in entities that can make another person happier or healthier.
"Save1Heart and uAgni Diagnostics are making a difference in the quality of life for thousands of people and I feel so privileged to be a part of their team."
