If you have heart disease and are not in need of emergency surgery, such as bypass, angioplasty, or stent placement, you can reverse your heart disease by eliminating the behaviors that have contributed to your condition and picking up healthy new habits.
You may need what Dr. Dean Ornish, Founder and President of the nonprofit Preventive Medicine Research Institute and Clinical Professor of Medicine at the University of California, calls a "pound of cure" (as opposed to an "ounce of prevention"). This means making big -- and sustainable -- changes to your diet, exercise routine, and approach to stress management.
Start getting better today with Dr. Ornish's 4-step plan to reverse your heart disease in 28 days. If followed correctly, you may reduce the plaque clinging to your artery walls and begin undoing decades of damage. For those who don't have heart disease, there is a wide spectrum of preventive choices you can make to live healthily.
