Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease challenges conventional cardiology by posing a compelling, revolutionary idea-that we can, in fact, abolish the heart disease epidemic in this country by changing our diets. Drawing on the groundbreaking results of his twenty-year nutritional study, Dr. Caldwell B. Esselstyn, Jr., a former surgeon, researcher, and clinician at the Cleveland Clinic, convincingly argues that a plant-based, oil-free diet 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 interventions, such as bypass and stents, no matter how far the disease has progressed. Dr. Esselstyn began his research with a group of patients who joined his study after traditional medical procedures to treat their advanced heart disease had failed. Within months of following a plant-based, oil-free diet, their angina symptoms eased, their cholesterol levels dropped significantly, and they experienced a marked improvement in blood flow to the heart. Twenty years later, the majority of Dr. Esselstyn's patients continue to follow his program and remain heart-attack proof.

Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease explains the science behind these dramatic results, and offers readers the same simple, nutrition-based plan that has changed the lives of his patients forever. In addition, Dr. Esselstyn provides more than 150 delicious recipes that he and his wife, Ann Crile Esselstyn, have enjoyed for years and used with their patients. Clearly written and backed by irrefutable scientific evidence, startling photos of angiograms, and inspiring personal stories, Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease will empower readers to take charge of their heart health. It is a powerful call for a paradigm shift in heart-disease therapy.
LIVE YOUR LIFE EXPECTANCY WITH CHRONIC LIVER DISEASE. Studies show that all wellness traditions except western medicine offer detoxification and toxic waste management as a means of natural healing. Using the principles of natural healing and detoxification, Dr. Alexis Carrel, a Nobel Prize winner kept chicken heart alive for 38 years. He believed that cells could live indefinitely and that the secret of life is to feed nutrients to cells and to saturate the cells with Oxygen. If you can't get nutrients into the cells and you don't remove the toxins, the cells will be poisoned by their own waste products. He had found the secret to ageless body and timeless health. Often overlooked is the pain associated with orthodox management of infective and degenerative liver diseases and the promise alternative remedies have to offer. The question often asked is which herbs and nutrients are crucial to my healing? How much should I take? What about the latest infomercial? And who can we believe with so many choices out there?
