Summary
  • Heart disease remains the leading cause of death in this country for men and women. And while we spend millions of dollars each year developing treatments, traditional procedures fail patients by focusing only on the symptoms of the disease, not the underlying causes. In Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease, Dr. Caldwell B. Esselstyn, Jr., a former surgeon, researcher, and clinician at the Cleveland Clinic, challenges conventional cardiology by posing a compelling, revolutionary idea-that we can, in fact, abolish the heart disease epidemic by changing out diets The proof is in the incredible results of the patients who have followed Dr. Esselstynʼs ground-breaking program. The men and women in his twenty-year nutritional study-the most comprehensive study of its king-came to him with advanced coronary disease. Despite the aggressive traditional treatment they received-including bypasses and angioplasties-a number had been told by their cardiologists that they had less than a year to live. Within months of following a plant based, oil free diet, their angina symptoms ease, their cholesterol levels dropped significantly and they experienced a marked improvement in blood flow to the heart. Twenty years later they remain free of symptoms
  • Drawing on the results of this revolutionary study and his ongoing work with patients all over the country, Dr. Esselstyn convincingly argues that plant based, oil free nutrition can not only prevent and stop the progression of heart disease, but also reverse its effects. Furthermore, it can eliminate the need for expensive and invasive surgical intervention except in acute emergencies, no matter how far the disease has progressed. Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease explains the science behind these dramatic results, and offers readers the same, simple plan that has changed the lives of Dr. Esselstynʼs patients forever. In addition, the book offers more than 150 delicious recipes developed by Ann Crile Esselstyn, that the Esselstyns and their patients have enjoyed for years. Clearly written and backed by irrefutable scientific evidence, startling photos of angiograms and inspiring personal stories, this book will empower readers to take charge of their heart health. It is an important call for a paradigm shift in heart disease therapy
