Heart Disease (#1 killer)

Just say NO to Heart Disease! (2 powerful videos)

If you want to get rid of your heart disease without surgery or if you want to make your children “heart attack proof” for their entire lives, you’ve found the right page.

Caldwell Esselstyn, MD. Director of Cardiovascular Disease Prevention and Reversal at the Wellness Institute of the Cleveland Clinic.

Caldwell Esselstyn, M.D., along with Dr. Ornish and Dr. Campbell, influenced President Clinton to reverse his heart disease.

Heart disease is easily reversible in 95% of the cases with the simple adoption of a whole foods, plant-based diet. That has been proven beyond a shadow of a doubt by the two well-known physicians (Ornish and Esselstyn) who influenced President Clinton to walk away from meat and dairy and adopt a whole foods, plant-based diet.

Since Mr. Clinton read their books and The China Study by Dr. T. Colin Campbell, he has reversed his heart disease, lost weight and is now enjoying vibrant health. As Dr. Esselstyn says:

“The truth be known, coronary artery disease is a toothless paper tiger that need never exist and if it does exist, it need never progress.”

—Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, Jr, Director of Cardiovascular Disease Prevention & Reversal at the Wellness Institute of The Cleveland Clinic.

This page leads off with two videos. They’re both related to the CNN special, The Last Heart Attack with Dr. Sanjay Gupta that first aired in late August of 2011. Taking charge of your health in just 46 minutes—for free!!

  1. The first video is just two minutes and features Dr. Esselstyn and one of his patients who just said NO to surgery and proceeded to reverse her heart disease with parsnips, greens and sweet potatoes.
  2. Finally, the entire 40-minute special with Dr. Sanjay Gupta. It features President Clinton and Dr. Esselstyn and compares two treatment regimens: Open heart surgery or eating whole plants. Watch the video and then decide which option is best for you.

One-on-one MD Help. Sadly, 95% of our medical doctors are not aware of the power of plant-based nutrition to combat many chronic diseases, including heart disease. If you would like a second opinion (about heart disease) from a medical doctor who truly “gets it” about food, you may wish to visit our MD Help page and schedule a telephone consultation with one of the MDs listed there.
