Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease, Caldwell Esselsytyn, MD

Heart disease remains the leading cause of death in Australia for men and women. But, as Dr. Caldwell B. Esselstyn, Jr., a former internationally known surgeon, researcher and clinician at the Cleveland Clinic, explains in this book, it can be prevented, reversed, and even abolished. Dr. Esselstyn argues that conventional cardiology has failed patients by developing treatments that focus only on the symptoms of heart disease, not the cause.

Based on the groundbreaking results of his 20-year nutritional study — the longest study of its kind ever conducted — this book explains, with irrefutable scientific evidence, how we can end the heart disease epidemic in this country forever by changing what we eat. Here, Dr. Esselstyn 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.

The proof is in the results. The patients in Dr. Esselstyn’s initial study came to him with advanced coronary artery disease. Despite the aggressive treatment they received, among them bypasses and angioplasties, 5 of the original group were told by their cardiologists they had less than a year to live. Within months on Dr. Esselstyn’s program, their cholesterol levels, angina symptoms, and blood flow improved dramatically. Twelve years later 17 compliant patients had no further cardiac events. Adherent patients survived beyond twenty years free of symptoms.

Drop in cholesterol levels:

After 5 years on Dr. Esselstyn’s plant-based diet, the average total cholesterol levels of his research group dropped from 246 milligrams per deciliter to 137 mg/dL (Above 240 mg/dL is considered “high risk,” below 150 mg/dL is the total cholesterol level seen in cultures where heart disease is essentially nonexistent.) This is the most profound drop in cholesterol ever documented in the medical literature in a study of this type.

 

Praise for Prevent And Reverse Heart Disease

“One of the most outstanding projects in health research of the past century. It’s relevant, it’s caring, it’s innovative, it’s extremely well executed and it’s very, very useful.”
Colin Campbell, Ph.D., emeritus professor of Nutritional Biochemistry, Cornell University, and author of The China Study

“Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn has directed pioneering research demonstrating that the progression of even severe coronary heart disease can often be reversed by making comprehensive change in diet and lifestyle.“
Dr Dean Ornish MD, clinical professor of medicine at the University of California, San Francisco, founder, president and director of Preventive Medicine Research Institute and author of Dr. Dean Ornish’s Program for Reversing Heart Disease

“Dr. Esselstyn has always been ahead of his time. His focus on the healing powers of proper nutrition on diseased coronary arteries has now proven right, raising another unthinkable notion—that heart patients can cure themselves.”
Bernadine Healy, M.D., former Director of the National Institutes of Health

“A hard nosed scientist shows us his secrets for successfully cleaning the rusting arteries of so many patients – and it doesn’t even hurt.”
Mehmet Oz, M.D., cardiothoracic surgeon, Oprah columnist, author of six New York Times best sellers including Healing from the Heart

“Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, Jr., is certainly the father (and the mother) of the now proven hypothesis that you can reverse severe arterial disease (including severe disease of the arteries supposed to nourish your heart). He proved that radical changes in diet (and that alone) cause radical changes in the age and disease of your arteries—and that you can make your arteries much younger.

“So even if you only want to try this plan five days a week, this book is a must purchase because of its great recipes that spice low fat plant based food to high taste—you may even want to enjoy (and know I am using that word specifically and as intentionally as the proposal I made to my wife 33 years ago) the recipes all 7 days.
Michael Roizen MD, anesthesiologist and scientist, coauthor of YOU: The Owner’s Manual and YOU: On A Diet. The Owner’s Manual to Waist Management

“This powerful program will make you virtually heart-attack proof. Based on decades of research, Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn has shown not only how to prevent heart disease, but how to reverse it-even for people who have been affected for many years. I strongly recommend this important book.”
Neal D. Barnard, M.D., adjunct associate professor of medicine at the George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences, president of The Cancer Project and Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, and best selling author

If you have heart disease,this book should be essential reading. It could save your life.”
Michael F. Jacobson, Executive Director, Center for Science in the Public Interest

“Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease provides a practical approach for people to regain their lost health. Considering the worldwide prevalence of coronary artery disease this book should become the bestseller of all times.”
John McDougall, M.D., author of The McDougall Program

“Dr. Esselstyn’s solution in Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease is as profound as Newton’s discovery of gravity. Half of all Americans dying today could have changed their date with the undertaker by following Dr. Esselstyn’s plan.”
Howard F. Lyman, author of No More Bull! and Mad Cowboy

“Dr. Esselstyn’s eminently successful arrest-and-reversal therapy for heart disease through patient education and empowerment as the treatment of choice will send shock waves through a mercenary medical system that focuses largely on pills and procedures.”
Hans Diehl, Founder & Director of the Coronary Health Improvement Program (CHIP)
