A powerful call for a paradigm shift in heart disease therapy.
Based on the groundbreaking results of a twenty-year nutritional study by Dr. Esselstyn, a preeminent researcher and clinician, this book illustrates that a plant-based, oil-free diet can not only prevent and stop the progression of heart disease but can also reverse its effects.
The proof lies in the incredible outcomes for patients who have followed Dr. Esselstyn's program, including a number of patients in his original study who had been told by their cardiologists that they had less than a year to live.
Within months of starting the program, Dr. Esselstyn's patients began to improve dramatically, and twenty years later, they remain free of symptoms.
Complete with more than 150 delicious recipes, this book explains the science behind the simple plan that has drastically changed the lives of Dr. Esselstyn's patients forever. It will empower readers to take control of their heart health.

Life changing book that introduces you an all new concept on healthy food that has been scientically proven to work.
Dr Esselstyn has inspired many, including this reader, to improved health. A successful physician who could have retired and rested on his laurels but has instead been motivated onto a second career. Having treated the symptoms of illness for decades he looked at the cause and found great evidence in support of a whole food plant based diet to prevent illness, especially heart disease. This book is pioneering and well worth reading and passing onto friends. Highly recommended.
Happy with the contents
If you want to eliminate cholesterol (and lose weight, if you are overweight now), the lifestyle recommended by this book is 100% guaranteed. I do not call it a diet. It is a change of lifestyle. OK, I have only been following this book's recommendations for a month, but I think I can do it in the long term. I have been virtually vegetarian anyway for 5 years (just ate a little fish). But now - I can tell people I eat no meat, fish, dairy, eggs, oil and hardly any nuts. They say "what do you eat". To which the answer is "everything else". So far I feel great, never over full in the way I did before. Any my cholesterol which was above the normal range must be plummeting. I will know for sure in six months when it is re-tested, but I do expect my doctor to be very surprised! I am never hungry because as long as you eat inside the guidelines, you can have as much as you like.
The information is this book has helped my whole family to get healthier, to eat the rainbow and to feel and be well.

"One of the most outstanding projects in health research of the past century. It's relevant, it's caring, it's innovative, it's extremely well executed and it's very, very useful."
--T. Colin Campbell, Ph.D., author of The China Study
"Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn has directed pioneering research demonstrating that the progression of even severe coronary heart disease can often be reversed by making comprehensive change in diet and lifestyle."
--Dean Ornish, M.D, founder, president and director of Preventive Medicine Research Institute and author of Dr. Dean Ornish's Program for Reversing Heart Disease
"I highly recommend Dr. Esselstyn's book."
--Kathy Freston, author of Veganist
"Dr. Esselstyn has always been ahead of his time. His focus on the healing powers of proper nutrition on diseased coronary arteries has now proven right, raising another unthinkable notion--that heart patients can cure themselves."
--Bernadine Healy, M.D., former Director of the National Institutes of Health
"A hard nosed scientist shows us his secrets for successfully cleaning the rusting arteries of so many patients - and it doesn't even hurt."
--Mehmet Oz, M.D., coauthor, You: The Owner's Manual
"Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, Jr., is certainly the father (and the mother) of the now proven hypothesis that you can reverse severe arterial disease (including severe disease of the arteries supposed to nourish your heart). He proved that radical changes in diet (and that alone) cause radical changes in the age and disease of your arteries--and that you can make your arteries much younger. So even if you only want to try this plan five days a week, this book is a must purchase because of its great recipes that spice low fat plant based food to high taste--you may even want to enjoy (and know I am using that word specifically and as intentionally as the proposal I made to my wife 33 years ago) the recipes all 7 days."
--Michael Roizen, M.D., coauthor of YOU: The Owner's Manual and YOU: On A Diet. The Owner's Manual to Waist Management
"This powerful program will make you virtually heart-attack proof. Based on decades of research, Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn has shown not only how to prevent heart disease, but how to reverse it-even for people who have been affected for many years. I strongly recommend this important book."
--Neal D. Barnard, M.D., President, Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, and author of Breaking the Food Seduction
"If you have heart disease, this book should be essential reading. It could save your life."
--Michael F. Jacobson, Executive Director, Center for Science in the Public Interest
"Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease provides a practical approach for people to regain their lost health. Considering the worldwide prevalence of coronary artery disease this book should become the bestseller of all times."
--John McDougall, M.D., author of The McDougall Program
"Dr. Esselstyn's solution in Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease is as profound as Newton's discovery of gravity. Half of all Americans dying today could have changed their date with the undertaker by following Dr. Esselstyn's plan."
--Howard F. Lyman, author of No More Bull! and Mad Cowboy
"Dr. Esselstyn's eminently successful arrest-and-reversal therapy for heart disease through patient education and empowerment as the treatment of choice will send shock waves through a mercenary medical system that focuses largely on pills and procedures."
--Hans Diehl, Founder & Director of the Coronary Health Improvement Program (CHIP)
