Ep. 27: Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn: Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease, Here's How!
It was my honor to interview Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn! He is well-known for his role in the Forks Over Knives documentary and his revolutionary, scientifically proven book, How to Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease, both advocate for whole foods plant based diet to prevent and reverse disease. Dr, Esselstyn is an American physician who has been associated with the Cleveland clinic since 1968, and presently directs the cardiovascular prevention and reversal program at The Cleveland Clinic Wellness Institute. In this episode, he explains the underlying cause of heart disease, and all underlying vascular diseases, such as diabetes vascular dementia, high blood pressure, and Alzheimers. It is well-known that most diabetics die from heart disease rather than diabetes itself. He says it is damage to the endothelial vessels and loss of nitric oxide that contributes to these diseases. Based on the evidence he has seen, he is strongly against oils that are touted as beneficial, such as olive oil. He explains in his article, Is Oil Healthy? Dr. Esselstyn shows that cardiovascular disease is not malignant, and it can be reversed through a plant-based diet.
