For men only…killing two birds with one stone

Erectile Dysfunction Can Save Your Life

If you are a male and over the age of 20 and have been eating the typical American diet for your entire life, the odds are near 80% that you now have coronary artery disease…according to Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn of the Cleveland Clinic, author of Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease. One of the first symptoms that you have the disease is a heart attack; another early symptom is that you are diagnosed with E.D. (erectile dysfunction).

As Dr. Esselstyn has found out with his patients, it turns out that coronary artery disease and erectile dysfunction are the same disease — restricted blood flow in your arteries. The rich western diet consisting of meat and dairy three meals a day causes plaques to form in arteries throughout your body, not just the ones in and around your heart. We’re talking 100,000 miles of arteries in the adult body.

So what about saving your life with E.D.? Well, since they’re the same disease, if you cure one of them, you simultaneously cure the other one. You may know that Dr. Esselstyn and other prominent M.D.’s have reversed advanced heart disease in close to 100% of their patients — with nothing but a change of diet, simply moving to a whole foods, plant-based diet with less than 15% of one’s total calories coming from fat. So here’s the deal:

If you’re lucky enough to get E.D. before your first heart attack — and you’re lucky enough to learn about the power of plant-based nutrition to reverse it; then you’ll be cleaning those plaques out of ALL of your arteries at the same time, not just the ones that have got you started thinking lately about little blue pills for the rest of your life.
