Make Yourself Heart-Attack Proof!
"Your arteries at the age of ninety ought to work as efficiently as they did when you were nine." - Dr Caldwell Esselstyn
It was a Friday in November 1996 when Dr Joe Crowe first suffered a heart attack. He was only forty-four years old. He had no family history of heart disease, was not overweight or diabetic, and did not have high blood pressure or a bad cholesterol count. In short, he was not the usual candidate for a heart attack. Nonetheless, he had been struck - and struck hard. Tests showed that the entire lower third of his left anterior descending coronary artery was significantly diseased.
Cases like Dr Crowe's are recounted in Dr Esselstyn's landmark book, Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease, which details his pioneering study of the effects of nutrition in severely ill patients. Those who complied with Dr Esselstyn's program achieved total arrest of clinical progression and significant selective reversal of coronary artery disease. Fully compliant patients saw angina disappear and abnormal stress test results return to normal, in just a few weeks.
The dietary changes that have helped Dr Esselsyn's patients over the past twenty years can help you, too. They can actually make you immune to heart attacks. And there is considerable evidence that they have benefits far beyond coronary artery disease. If you eat to save your heart, you eat to save yourself from other diseases of nutritional extravagance: from strokes, hypertension, obesity, osteoporosis, adult-onset diabetes, and possibly senile mental impairment, as well. You gain protection from a host of other ailments that have been linked to dietary factors, including impotence and cancers of the breast, prostate, colon, rectum, uterus, and ovaries.
And if you are eating for good health in this way, here's a side benefit you might not have expected: for the rest of your life, you will never again have to count calories or worry about your weight.
