In questa opera il dottor Caldwell B. Esselstyn lancia una sfida alla cardiologia convenzionale avanzando un'idea rivoluzionaria e affascinante: abbiamo la possibilità di fermare l'epidemia di malattie cardiache modificando la nostra alimentazione. Partendo proprio dal suo studio sull'alimentazione durato vent'anni - il più completo nel suo genere - il dottor Esselstyn spiega, con solide argomentazioni, come una dieta a base vegetale e senza grassi possa non solo prevenire e bloccare la progressione delle cardiopatie, ma anche guarirne gli effetti. La prova sta nei risultati incredibili ottenuti sui pazienti che hanno seguito il suo rivoluzionario programma. Il libro propone lo stesso semplice programma che ha cambiato per sempre la vita di quei pazienti e include 150 ricette deliziose messe a punto da Ann Crile Esselstyn, che lo stesso Esselstyn e i suoi pazienti hanno seguito per anni. Basato su evidenze scientifiche inconfutabili, immagini sorprendenti di angiografie che mostrano la remissione della malattia e ispirato a storie personali, Guarire le malattie cardiache con l'alimentazione incoraggia i lettori ad assumersi la responsabilità della propria salute.

In November I travelled to Georgia to visit my daughter. While there we had dinner with one of Morgan’s friends and her mom. During dinner this lovely, lean woman described the “diet” she had been following for the past 6 months. She described it as “the Bill Clinton diet” and said she had learned a Leggi tutto
First off, I'm not sure why I didn't read this book sooner. Second off, there is no questioning why Clinton was impacted by this book. Third off, read this book (though I would start with The China Study) even if you don't know a single person with heart disease or affected by it (which is highly un Leggi tutto
This ball got rolling when I saw "The Last Heart Attack" on CNN. My dad had just had heart surgery, so I was looking for something to help him, and to help me to avoid the same outcome. When I watched the CNN special and saw the amazing things a plant-based diet was doing for President Clinton, and
Like many readers, I have a personal reason for picking up this book. A couple of years ago, my boyfriend had a heart attack at the alarmingly young age of 43. He wasn't your obvious heart attack risk – he's a healthy weight, fit, active, doesn't smoke or drink, and his diet, while fairly standard A Leggi tutto
Written by "a former surgeon, researcher and clinician at the Cleveland Clinic" this book is a must read for anyone who has a history of heart disease or who's family history puts them at risk of heart disease. The first half of the book is what is important - it comprises the full discussion of the Leggi tutto
This book first caught my attention when Bill Clinton appeared on CNN and told how its strict, even severe, diet plan, helped him lose an extraordinary amount of weight. Like Clinton, I have had cardiovascular and ever greater weight problems, I think. Dr. Esselstyn, a former surgeon at the Clevelan Leggi tutto
I purchased this book after watching Dr. Sanjay Gupta's special on CNN entitled "The Last Heart Attack." Dr. Esselstyn, although not a cardiologist, has been doing research regarding plant based diets and the prevention, arrestment, and in some cases reversal of heart disease. He has stories of some Leggi tutto
An absolutely wonderful book. Very well written, extremely engaging and extremely motivating. It focuses on heart disease, but the lessons are applicable to many areas of chronic disease, and indeed to various cancers and dementia (and erectile disfunction). Dr. Esselstyn's approach is that a comple Leggi tutto
I give it only three stars just because I would have preferred more meat [*ahem*] about the research. The China Study really presents more of the background, and Esselstyn takes vegan a step further by eliminating added oil from his patients' diets. The sample set is small, but his results are intri Leggi tutto
At 58 years of age, I had emergency stents inserted into a main artery leading to my heart. Shocked, because as a vegetarian we all thought I was healthy in spite of family history with heart issues. I found this book when I saw an interview with Dr. Esselstyn and Bill Clinton. I quickly found out all I Leggi tutto
