"The truth be known coronary artery disease is a toothless paper tiger that need never exist and if it does exist it need never progress.
The medical profession has at its fingertips, the seismic revolution in health. The seismic revolution is never going to come about from pills or drugs - it is never going to come through a procedure or an operation
The seismic revolution will come about when we in the medical profession have the will, the guts, and the determination to share with the public the nutritional literacy that will empower them as a locus of control to destroy their chronic illness.”
~~Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn Jr.
Heart disease is still America's #1 killer. What if heart disease could be eradicated?
Today I delve deep with the one and only Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, Jr. about the truth behind heart disease.
Dr. Esselstyn is an internationally known surgeon, researcher and featured expert in the acclaimed documentary "Forks Over Knives."
Dr. Esselstyn has single-handedly helped thousands of people recover from heart disease with his New York Times bestselling book called "Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease: The Revolutionary, Scientifically Proven, Nutrition-Based Cure" which teaches people how nutrition can treat heart disease.
Individuals who followed Dr. Esselstyn's program, including a number of people who had been told by their cardiologists that they had less that they had less than a year to live because of their heart disease.
Within months of starting Dr. Esselstyn's program these patients began to improve dramatically, and many years later, they remain free of heart symptoms.
Not only that, Dr. Esselstyn won a gold medal in the Olympics for rowing, and in 1968 he was awarded the bronze star for serving as an army surgeon in Vietnam.
For all his accolades, he is one of the most approachable, caring, compassionate human beings I have ever encountered, and his number one goal in life is to save lives.
Please share this podcast with anyone who has heart disease or has a family history of heart disease so you can save lives too.

It’s not always popular to speak negatively about commonly consumed and highly touted foods like cow’s milk and cheese from cows.
But I felt personally bamboozled when I read all the research and discovered the negative effects of drinking dairy on my health, not to mention the planet and the exploitation of the animals who provide the milk.
How could I have been so misled?
Well, it wasn't my fault. The United States Department of Agriculture and the milk industry has spent a lot of money over the years touting the importance of milk, and marketing that message to all of us.
Learn the frightening facts about cow's milk and join us in Ordinary Vegan's kitchen and create your own healthy cheese alternative.
