It is the number one killer of both men and women in the United States.
Today I will discuss the food that has been medically proven to make you heart attack proof.
It is based on the life changing research and patient care of Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn M.D.
of the renowned Cleveland Clinic- ranked number one in heart care for 20 consecutive years.
Become Heart Attack Proof
Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn didn't become a doctor to change the way America eats.
He was a general surgeon.
But researching cancer, he stumbled on a fact that changed his career:
Certain cultures around the world DO NOT suffer from heart disease-
the No. 1 killer in the Western world.
Esselstyn's practice took a dramatic turn -- from performing surgery to promoting nutrition.
For more than 20 years, the Cleveland Clinic doctor has tried to get Americans to eat
like the Papua New Guinea highlanders, rural Chinese, central Africans and the
Tarahumara Indians of Mexico.
Follow his dietary prescription, the 77-year-old Esselstyn says, and you will be
"heart attack proof" -- regardless of your family history.
"It's a foodborne illness, and we're never going to end the epidemic with stents,
with bypasses, with the drugs, because none of it is treating causation of the illness,"
The Esselstyn diet is tough for most Americans to swallow:
no meat, no eggs, no dairy, no added oils.
You can't eat anything with a face or a mother.
Esselstyn has written a book to spread the word, "Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease --
The Revolutionary, Scientifically Proven, Nutrition-Based Cure,"
and he has given talks around the world.
THE PROOF IS IN THE RESULTS.
The patients in Dr. Esselstyn's initial study 20 years ago came to him
with advanced coronary artery disease.
They were the walking dead.
Despite the aggressive treatment they received, among them
bypasses and angioplasties, 5 of the original group were told
by their cardiologists they had less than a year to live.
Within months on Dr. Esselstyn's program, their cholesterol levels,
angina symptoms, and blood flow improved dramatically.
Twelve years later, 17 compliant patients had no further cardiac events.
Adherent patients survived beyond twenty years free of symptoms.
This nutritional approach can reverse the plaque that builds up in the arteries.
