As it turns out, a change in diet can not only reduce the severity of heart disease for some people, it can actually completely reverse it. Researcher Dr. Esselstyn proves just that in a twenty-year study of patients with heart disease. Some of these patients were terminally ill from heart disease, given less than a year to live.Of the 17 study participants, all of whom agreed to follow Dr. Esselstyn’s diet instructions, exactly 17 are still alive and symptom free today. That’s quite miraculous, considering some of them were not supposed to survive even one year.
In his book, Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease, Dr. Esselstyn shows us how eliminating oils from our diet and moving to a plant-based diet will eliminate and even reverse heart disease. Packed with more than 150 recipes, Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease has provided similar results to many readers, according to Amazon reviews.
As one reviewer suggested, simply give the principles in this book a try for one month and see what a difference it can make. If you suffer from heart disease, you have nothing to lose by giving this a try.
