Heart disease is on every one's mind and is also the number one killer worldwide according to the World Health Organization (WHO). WHO reported that just under one third of all deaths globally are due to cardiovascular disease. That's definitely not a laughing matter and something we should all take seriously.
To put this in perspective let's take a look at some data from the CDC. They reported in 2008 that the leading cause of death in the United States was from cardiovascular diseases (heart disease and strokes). This probably isn't much of a surprise to you. But what is a surprise is that cardiovascular disease kills more than 6 times the number of people than accidents do, more than 10 times the number of people than diabetes does, and more than 42 times than the number of people murdered each year in the U.S. Heart disease is literally the most notorious serial killer mankind has ever known.
So is there any good news about all this? The answer is YES but you'll be hard pressed to find it in our modern culture and it's not going to be advertised on a huge billboard that's flashing before your eyes. Most doctors and heart specialists immediately reach for the prescription pad or talk about a fancy new procedure or surgery that can be done. However, a bucketful of pills and even open heart surgery has never been proven to completely reverse this devastating disease. That doesn't mean it can't be done AND done in a much more effective and safer way. How do you do this you ask?
You're about to find out as I introduce you to the works of Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, Director of the Cardiovascular Disease Prevention and Reversal Program at the highly respected and famed Cleveland Clinic. Dr. Esselstyn is a medical doctor (MD) and surgeon who became frustrated by seeing his patients come back again and again with the same problems. So he set out to find a better way and decided to take on the behemoth of cardiovascular disease. What he found is that by putting his patients on a low fat, plant-based diet he was able to completely reverse their cases of heart disease.
If you have cardiovascular disease or know of someone who does then I would encourage you to take the time to watch the following one hour presentation by Dr. Esselstyn and also the short clip from Professor Peter Lewis who reversed his heart disease by following Dr. Esselstyn's advice. One hour could literally change your life and give you back control of your own health and destiny so that you can enjoy life to the fullest. With that being said sit back, relax, and enjoy the presentation.
