Dean Ornish, MD
Pioneer in Reversing Heart Disease.

Pam Gordon

Dr. Ornish proved that if a more potent diet was followed, along with other lifestyle changes, plaques would not only stop growing, they would actually start dissolving.

A revolution took place in medicine on July 21, 1990. On that day the prominent medical journal The Lancet published the findings of a young, Harvard-educated doctor, Dr. Dean Ornish. 

Dr. Ornish demonstrated that heart disease can actually be reversed without medicines or surgery

Although heart disease was the most common cause of death then, and still is, most doctors were not even attempting to reverse the disease.

Doctors believed that the plaques of cholesterol and other substances that clog the arteries to the heart could not go away. When they got too severe, the patient was sent off the hospital for a bypass or angioplasty.

The work of Dr. Ornish and other forward-thinking researchers has made previous diet recommendations obsolete, although some doctors seem to have missed that message.

Stroke, hypertension or high blood pressure, and impotence are vascular diseases, also.

The patient was urged to adopt a diet of lean meat, chicken, fish, and 2% milk. Unfortunately, with this dietary regimen, heart disease was rarely stopped. It usually went on to gradually kill the patient.

In his revolutionary experiment, Dr. Ornish proved that if a more potent diet was followed, along with other lifestyle changes, plaques would not only stop growing, they would actually start dissolving.

The work of Dr. Ornish and other forward-thinking researchers has made previous diet recommendations obsolete, although some doctors seem to have missed that message.

Dr. Ornish has written several books that explain his program for reversing heart disease. CyberParent recommends five books by Ornish, starting with the book Dr. Dean Ornish’s Program for Reversing Heart Disease. You might also choose one of the two cookbooks CyberParent recommends: Eat More, Weigh Less which is predominantly a cookbook or Everyday Cooking with Dr Dean Ornish.

Last, but certainly not least, read one of the books on love, intimacy, and health.

Remember: Stroke, hypertension or high blood pressure, and impotence are vascular diseases, also.
