If you are reading this blog post about how a plant based diet reverses heart disease you are obviously concerned about your heart health but …
Are you concerned enough about your heart health to take action? That is the million dollar question. Knowledge without action is essentially useless information.
A Plant Based Diet Reverses Heart Disease
Internationally known surgeon, researcher and clinician, Dr. Esselstyn currently directs the cardiovascular prevention and reversal program at the Cleveland Clinic Wellness Institute.
Of note, former US President Clinton recently spoke of how he was able to lose twenty-four pounds and improve his heart function by following a plant-based diet as recommended by Dr. Esselstyn in his ground breaking book “Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease.”
In the following video Dr. Esselstyn will show you some compelling facts about the decline of heart disease in Norway during the German occupation of that country in the late 1930’s and early 1940’s. It all had to do with diet. And may I add this bit of compelling food for thought from God’s Word, the Bible:
“Then God said, Behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed that is on the surface of all the earth, and every tree which has fruit yielding seed; it shall be food for you; and to every beast of the earth and to every bird of the sky and to every thing that moves on the earth which has life, I have given every green plant for food”; and it was so.” – Genesis 1:29-30
God originally intended for man to eat a plant based diet. When man sinned against God things changed, diet included. Eventually disease came into existence and yet when Norway was forced to adhere to a plant based diet during WW2, a time of high stress and terror, the incidence of heart disease plummeted! How do YOU explain that one? I for one do NOT believe in coincidence.
Dr. Esselstyn’s wife, Ann Esselstyn, has invested hours compiling her husbands food protocol into a book of recipes you can easily follow, use and of course enjoy. Packed with over 125 mouth watering, nutritious, plant based diet recipes this cookbook makes it very easy to follow Dr. Esselstyn’s protocol. This plant based diet cookbook is something you definitely should own if you are serious about reversing your heart disease naturally with a plant based diet.
