Avatar n tn I think the Ornish reversal diet is a good diet but may be difficult for some people to follow. However, if I had heart disease I would certainly try to follow that type of eating pattern. I hope you find this information useful.

Avatar m tn His total score was very high at 1400. He immediately went on the Dean Ornish Reversal Diet and cut out ALL oils and fats, went totally vegan and lost 30 lbs (he is 6" and weighs 180). He was also put on statins right away and Ace Inhibitor for HBP. He is asymptomatic, no chest pains, or anything else. At the time he took a stress echo test took it as high and for as long as it would go and it showed no blockages (a year ago), normal result.
Avatar m tn Yes I am very skeptical of results from diet change. The first one you posted is well over a decade old and I tend to read much more up to date ones. In fact the oldest I read was done in israel where is was concluded there is no noticeable difference. The trouble is, a healthy diet may increase elasticity of the vessel, making it easier for blood to pass a blockage. Whereas someone on a restrictive diet may have more rigid blood vessels.
Avatar m tn With all the new support of natural medicine and supplements I came across info about arterial health and related to curing and or reversing heart disease. I have seen things on Youtube and read some great info from some very reputable doctors online. Wanted to get some more insight on this new topic...Maybe it can help my family members who are losing their battle.
Avatar n tn There have been some studies that show a reversal of coronary artery disease with severe dietary restriction of fat and cholesterol, relaxation therapy, and regular exercise. We also know that reduction of cholesterol levels dramatically reduces cardiac events even in people without known coronary artery disease.
Avatar f tn I can suggest reading the books by Dr Dean Ornish and Dr Caldwell Esselstyn (you can google them) both have shown reversal of disease in patients using diet. Important to sort out the medical treatment though. I hope you get some help soon there are risks with the blockages, so I would get treatment as soon as you've found a good surgeon, I wish you and your father all the best.
Avatar n tn I had an EKKO in the hospital and my cardiologist told me that my enfractions have gone from 30 to 22. Is it possible for these number to go up? Can the enlargement of my heart improve? I have been put on a low fat'low salt diet along with Lasix and other medications. I would appreciate any help that you can give me.

Avatar f tn Do I necessarily have a future of valve and heart disease as a result of the drug induced injury? Is there anything I can do to facilitate reversal of my disease?
Avatar m tn I have a strong family history of heart disease. I have lost a father, two uncles and an aunt, all under 55, to heart attacks. I must admit that all of them had some bad habits, but on the surface, they were very healthy and working full time when they died. I do not agree that nutrition deficits alone explain heart disease, but I would love to know which nutrients can do the work that prescription HT drugs do at this time.
Avatar n tn 27 After bypass surgery 8 months ago I have been on the Ornish Reversal Diet - Low fat and no meat. I was very strict in following the principles. After three months my cholesterol increased by 20 points to 209, and my trig. shot up 100 points. I exercise every morning for 30 minutes. I am 35-40# overweight. I am not on any cholestrol lowering drugs, and would prefer not to be for the rest of my life. Can you explain why the Reversal Diet may have raised my numbers?

Avatar m tn An estimated 5.4 million Americans have Alzheimer’s disease, and an estimated 600,000 more may suffer from an often misdiagnosed subtype called "hippocampal sparing" Alzheimer’s Since there’s no conventional cure, the issue of prevention is absolutely critical if you want to avoid becoming an Alzheimer’s statistic.

Avatar f tn Past history includes VSD Repair, Graves Disease and Rheumatoid Arthritis. Congestive Heart Failure as child, multiple episodes of pneumonia, bronchitis and strep until about age 20. Was fairly ill on and off until about age 16, and then started to get better. Started on Carvedilol and Hydrochloroazide. Had a bad reaction to the Carvedilol, so switching to metoprolol succinate.
