“In this book, I tell Joe Crowe’s story, along with those of many other patients I have treated over the past twenty years. My subject is coronary heart disease, its cause, and the revolutionary treatment, available to all, that can abolish it and that has saved Joe Crowe and many others. My message is clear and absolute: coronary artery disease need not exist, and if it does, it need not progress. It is my dream that one day we may entirely abolish heart disease, the scourge of the affluent, modern West, along with an impressive roster of other chronic illnesses.
… I believe that coronary artery disease is preventable, and that even after it is under way, its progress can be stopped, its insidious effects reversed. I believe, and my work over the past twenty years has demonstrated, that all this can be accomplished without expensive mechanical intervention and with minimal use of drugs. The key lies in nutrition—specifically, in abandoning the toxic American diet and maintaining cholesterol levels well below those historically recommended by health policy experts.”
~ Caldwell B. Esselstyn, M.D. from Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease
Dr. Caldwell B. Esselstyn is one of the world’s leading authorities on, as the title of the book suggests, how to prevent and reverse heart disease. He’s also a gold-winning Olympic rower and the father of Rip Esselstyn—another incredible advocate for nutrition-based optimal living whose book (The Engine 2 Diet) we also profile! Plus, you can tell that Dr. E is, quite simply, a REALLY good human being: wise, strong, compassionate, and committed to making a difference.
This book is packed with wisdom. As one reviewer put it, “If you have heart disease, this book should be essential reading. It could save your life.”
Leaning on extensive, peer-reviewed, scientific research, Dr. Esselstyn walks us through his nutrition-based cure for heart disease in a powerful, easy-to-read, style.
I sincerely hope I inspire you to get the book, study the power of nutrition more deeply, and change your life (and your family’s lives!) in the process!
