Kurzbeschreibung

31. Januar 2008

The New York Times bestselling guide to the lifesaving diet that can both prevent and help reverse the effects of heart disease

Based on the groundbreaking results of his twenty-year nutritional study, Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease by Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn  illustrates that a plant-based, oil-free diet can not only prevent the progression of heart disease but can also reverse its effects.  Dr. Esselstyn is an internationally known surgeon, researcher and former clinician at the Cleveland Clinic and a featured expert in the acclaimed documentary Forks Over Knives. Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease has helped thousands across the country, and is the book behind Bill Clinton’s life-changing vegan diet.

The proof lies in the incredible outcomes for patients who have followed Dr. Esselstyn's program, including a number of patients in his original study who had been told by their cardiologists that they had less than a year to live. Within months of starting the program, all Dr. Esselstyn’s patients began to improve dramatically, and twenty years later, they remain free of symptoms.

Complete with more than 150 delicious recipes perfect for a plant-based diet, the national bestseller Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease explains the science behind the simple plan that has drastically changed the lives of heart disease patients forever. It will empower readers and give them the tools to take control of their heart health.

Pressestimmen

“One of the most outstanding projects in health research of the past century. It's relevant, it's caring, it's innovative, it's extremely well executed and it's very, very useful."
—T. Colin Campbell, Ph.D., author of The China Study


“Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn has directed pioneering research demonstrating that the progression of even severe coronary heart disease can often be reversed by making comprehensive change in diet and lifestyle.“
—Dean Ornish, M.D, founder, president and director of Preventive Medicine Research Institute and author of Dr. Dean Ornish’s Program for Reversing Heart Disease


“I highly recommend Dr. Esselstyn’s book.”
—Kathy Freston, author of Veganist


“Dr. Esselstyn has always been ahead of his time. His focus on the healing powers of proper nutrition on diseased coronary arteries has now proven right, raising another unthinkable notion—that heart patients can cure themselves.”
—Bernadine Healy, M.D., former Director of the National Institutes of Health


“A hard nosed scientist shows us his secrets for successfully cleaning the rusting arteries of so many patients - and it doesn't even hurt.”
—Mehmet Oz, M.D., coauthor, You: The Owner’s Manual


“Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, Jr., is certainly the father (and the mother) of the now proven hypothesis that you can reverse severe arterial disease (including severe disease of the arteries supposed to nourish your heart). He proved that radical changes in diet (and that alone) cause radical changes in the age and disease of your arteries—and that you can make your arteries much younger. So even if you only want to try this plan five days a week, this book is a must purchase because of its great recipes that spice low fat plant based food to high taste—you may even want to enjoy (and know I am using that word specifically and as intentionally as the proposal I made to my wife 33 years ago) the recipes all 7 days."
—Michael Roizen, M.D., coauthor of YOU: The Owner's Manual and YOU: On A Diet. The Owner's Manual to Waist Management


"This powerful program will make you virtually heart-attack proof. Based on decades of research, Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn has shown not only how to prevent heart disease, but how to reverse it-even for people who have been affected for many years. I strongly recommend this important book."
—Neal D. Barnard, M.D., President, Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, and author of Breaking the Food Seduction


"If you have heart disease, this book should be essential reading. It could save your life."
—Michael F. Jacobson, Executive Director, Center for Science in the Public Interest


Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease provides a practical approach for people to regain their lost health. Considering the worldwide prevalence of coronary artery disease this book should become the bestseller of all times."
—John McDougall, M.D., author of The McDougall Program


“Dr. Esselstyn’s solution in Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease is as profound as Newton’s discovery of gravity. Half of all Americans dying today could have changed their date with the undertaker by following Dr. Esselstyn’s plan.”
—Howard F. Lyman, author of No More Bull! and Mad Cowboy


“Dr. Esselstyn's eminently successful arrest-and-reversal therapy for heart disease through patient education and empowerment as the treatment of choice will send shock waves through a mercenary medical system that focuses largely on pills and procedures.”
—Hans Diehl, Founder & Director of the Coronary Health Improvement Program (CHIP)

PART ONE
The Heart of the Matter
I
Eating to Live

“IT WAS A FRIDAY in November 1996. I had operated all day. I finished, said good-bye to my last patient, and got a very, very bad headache. It hit me in a flash. I had to sit down. A minute or two after that, the chest pain started. It radiated up my arm and shoulder and into my jaw.”
These are the words of Joe Crowe, the doctor who succeeded me as chairman of the breast cancer task force at the Cleveland Clinic. He was having a heart attack. He was only forty-four years old. He had no family history of heart disease, was not overweight or diabetic, and did not have high blood pressure or a bad cholesterol count. In short, he was not the usual candidate for a heart attack. Nonetheless, he had been struck—and struck hard.
In this book, I tell Joe Crowe’s story, along with those of many other patients I have treated over the past twenty years. My subject is coronary artery disease, its cause, and the revolutionary treatment, available to all, that can abolish it and that has saved Joe Crowe and many others. My message is clear and absolute: coronary artery disease need not exist, and if it does, it need not progress. It is my dream that one day we may entirely abolish heart disease, the scourge of the affluent, modern West, along with an impressive roster of other chronic illnesses.
Here are the facts. Coronary artery disease is the leading killer of men and women in Western civilization. In the United States alone, more than half a million people die of it every single year. Three times that number suffer known heart attacks. And approximately three million more have “silent” heart attacks, experiencing minimal symptoms and having no idea, until well after the damage is done, that they are in mortal danger. In the course of a lifetime, one out of every two American men and one out of every three American women will have some form of the disease.
The cost of this epidemic is enormous—greater, by far, than that of any other disease. The United States spends more than $250 billion a year on heart disease. That’s about the same amount the nation spent on the first two and half years of its military venture in Iraq, and fully twice as much as the federal government allocates annually for all research and development—including R&D for defense and national security.1
But here is the truly shocking statistic: nearly all of that money is devoted to treating symptoms. It pays for cardiac drugs, for clot-dissolving medications, and for costly mechanical techniques that bypass clogged arteries or widen them with balloons, tiny rotating knives, lasers, and stents. All of these approaches carry significant risk of serious complications, including death. And even if they are successful, they provide only temporary relief from the symptoms. They do nothing at all to cure the underlying disease or to prevent its development in other potential victims.
I believe that we in the medical profession have taken the wrong course. It is as if we were simply standing by, watching millions of people march over a cliff, and then intervening in a desperate, last-minute attempt to save them once they have fallen over the edge. Instead, we should be teaching them how to avoid the chasm entirely, how to walk parallel to the precipice so that they will never fall at all.
I believe that coronary artery disease is preventable, and that even after it is under way, its progress can be stopped, its insidious effects reversed. I believe, and my work over the past twenty years has demonstrated, that all this can be accomplished without expensive mechanical intervention and with minimal use of drugs. The key lies in nutrition—specifically, in abandoning the toxic American diet and maintaining cholesterol levels well below those historically recommended by health policy experts.
The bottom line of the nutritional program I recommend is that it contains not a single item of any food known to cause or promote the development of vascular disease. I often ask patients to compare their coronary artery disease to a house fire. Your house is on fire because eating the wrong foods has given you heart disease. You are spraying gasoline on the fire by continuing to eat the very same foods that caused the disease in the first place.
I don’t want my patients to pour a single thimbleful of gasoline on the fire. Stopping the gasoline puts out the fire. Reforming the way you eat will end the heart disease.
Here are the rules of my program in their simplest form:
You may not eat anything with a mother or a face (no meat, poultry, or fish).
You cannot eat dairy products.
You must not consume oil of any kind—not a drop. (Yes, you devotees of the Mediterranean Diet, that includes olive oil, as I’ll explain in Chapter 10.)
Generally, you cannot eat nuts or avocados.
You can eat a wonderful variety of delicious, nutrient-dense foods:
All vegetables except avocado. Leafy green vegetables, root vegetables, veggies that are red, green, purple, orange, and yellow and everything in between.
All legumes—beans, peas, and lentils of all varieties.
All whole grains and products, such as bread and pasta, that are made from them—as long as they do not contain added fats.
All fruits.

It works. In the first continuous twelve-year study of the effects of nutrition in severely ill patients, which I will describe in this book, those who complied with my program achieved total arrest of clinical progression and significant selective reversal of coronary artery disease. In fully compliant patients, we have seen angina disappear in a few weeks and abnormal stress test results return to normal.
And consider the case of Joe Crowe. After his heart attack in 1996, tests showed that the entire lower third of his left anterior descending coronary artery—the vessel leading to the front of the heart and nicknamed, for obvious reasons, “the widowmaker”—was significantly diseased. His coronary artery anatomy excluded him as a candidate for surgical bypass, angioplasty, or stents, and at such a young age, with a wife and three small children, Dr. Crowe was understandably disconsolate and depressed. Since he already exercised, did not use tobacco, and had a relatively low cholesterol count of 156 milligrams per deciliter (mg/dL), there seemed to be nothing he could modify, no obvious reforms in lifestyle that might halt the disease.
Joe was aware of my interest in coronary disease. About two weeks after his heart attack, he and his wife, Mary Lind, came to dinner at our house and I had a chance to share the full details of my research. Both Joe and Mary Lind immediately grasped the implications for Joe of a plant-based diet. All at once, instead of having no options, they were empowered. In Mary Lind’s words, “It was our own personal disaster, and suddenly there was something small we could do.” Immediately, Joe embarked on my nutrition program, refusing to take any cholesterol-lowering drugs, and he redefined the word commitment. He stuck to the plan rigorously, eventually reducing his total blood cholesterol count to just 89 mg/dL and cutting his LDL, or “bad” cholesterol, from 98 mg/dL to 38 mg/dL.
About two and a half years after Joe adopted a strict plant-based diet, there came a point when he was exceptionally busy professionally, under considerable stress, and he noted a return of some discomfort in his chest. His cardiologists, worried about the recurrence of angina, asked for more tests to see what was going on.
On the day of his follow-up angiogram, I went to Dr....

5.0 von 5 Sternen Herzinfarkt vermeiden oder heilen? 11. Januar 2011
Von Anna-Lena
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Dieses Buch will Menschen mit Herzkrankheiten heilen oder der Herzkrankheit überhaupt vorbeugen. Dies alles "nur" mit einem Ernährungsprogramm. Allerdings ist dieses Ernährungsprogramm sehr strikt und auch nicht einfach umzusetzen. Aber wenn man vor der Entscheidung einer Bypass-OP steht, wird man vielleicht doch die eigene Ernährung radikal umstellen, wenn das Erfolg verspricht, d.h. die Bypass-OP vielleicht vermieden werden kann.
Kurz gesagt rät der Autor nach über 20jähriger ärztlicher Erfahrung mit schwerkranken Herzpatienten zu einer veganen und sehr fettarmen Ernährung. Kein Fleisch, kein Fisch, keine Eier, keine Mich und Milchprodukte, kein Käse, keine Butter und keinerlei Öle.
Was man essen darf sind Obst, Gemüse, Salate, Brot, Hülsenfrüchte, Reis usw.
Der Autor beschreibt in der ersten Hälfte des Buches seine medizinischen Erfahrungen und die Therapie mit seinen Patienten, die er über lange Jahre betreut hat. Die zweite Hälfte des Buches sind Kochrezepte zu der Herzdiät, verfasst von der Ehefrau des Autors Anne Crile Esselstyn.
Ich kaufte das Buch, weil in meiner engsten Familie ein Herzinfarkt einschlug. Das Ergebnis waren erst mal vier Stents und die Rede von vielleicht einer noch nötigen Bypass-OP. Ich habe versucht, die Diät nach diesem Buch umzusetzen (angefangen schon in der Reha, wo das Essensangebot dem gar nicht entsprach!). Das extrem fettarme Essen konnte ich nicht umsetzen, aber doch deutlich fettarm und vegan. Das Ergebnis nach 3 Monaten waren erst mal acht Kilo Gewichtsverlust und beim ersten Kontroll-Herzkatheter sehr gute Ergebnisse. Von Bypass-OP war nicht mehr die Rede und weitere Kontroll-Herzkatheter sind nicht mehr angesagt!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Wenn ich das früher gewusst hätte 15. Februar 2012
Von JoHo
Format:Taschenbuch
Dieses Buch hat mein Leben gerettet. Nachdem ich mich umgestellt habe, was extrem schwer gefallen ist, hatte ich das Gefühl etwas wiedergefunden zu haben, dass ich in meiner frühen Jugend hatte. Schwermut ist einfach abgefallen. Ich brauche weniger Schlaf (6-7h reichen völlig), habe mehr Antrieb, schlafe schneller ein UND habe sage und schreibe 37,7 kg abgenommen innerhalb von 6 Monaten. Ich kann schweben und fliege leichtgewichtig über meine morgentliche Laufstrecke (inzwischen 10 km in 58 min). Meine Hausärztin hat mich nach dem "Rezept" für meine Veränderung gefragt (Ist es nicht öfter anders herum ?)...

ABER

Die Ernährungsumstellung ist extrem schwierig. In der Anfangszeit habe ich mich unwohl gefühlt beim Ausgehen nachzufragen, ob eine Salatsoße mit tierischen Produkten (Milch, Käse, o.ä.) gereicht wird oder wie oder was. Man muss sich im Klaren darüber sein, dass man statt dem Autopiloten (i.S.v. "spät im auto unterwegs, schnell nen Happen bei McDonalds/BurgerKing essen) den Autofaschisten in sich wecken muss und es einer gewissen Ernährungsplanung bedarf, die evtl. in heutigen Zeiten vielen Menschen abhanden gekommen ist, weil sie unwichtige Dinge den wichtigen Dingen vorziehen (4h TV-/Internetsucht fröhnen, anstatt 15 Minuten lang einen Essensplan für die Woche zu erstellen). Der Umstieg ist mir leichter gefallen, nachdem ich mir einen neuen, riesigen Kühlschrank zugelegt habe, damit ich nur noch 2 mal pro Woche (meist für frische Artikel) in den Supermarkt gehen muss.

MEIN TIP:

Sollte sich jemand nicht vorstellen können, was die Folgen dieser Ernährungsumstellungen sein sollten (ich konnte es auch nicht).

Leider nur auf englisch erhältlich, deshalb etwas anstrengend zu lesen. Viele neue Erkenntnisse, die man beim Arzt leider nicht gesagt bekommt. Dieses Buch sollte jeder lesen, der ein Herz hat und möchte, dass es gesund bleibt.

5.0 von 5 Sternen eines der besten Bücher, das ich jemals gelesen habe 17. Dezember 2012
Von sammler
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Ob der Autor nun alle wissenschaftlichen Richtlinien einhält oder nicht, halte ich für irrelevant. Dieses Buch öffnet einam die Augen. Die von Dr. Esselstyn beschriebenen Beobachtungen über diesen langen Zeitraum sprechen einfach für sich, da muss ich nicht noch wissen, ob die Probanden möglicherweise andere Erkrankungen hatten usw. Wenn jeder das Buch in der Schule lesen würde, sähe unsere Welt sicher etwas anders aus. Aber ob wir da jemals hinkommen? MUST READ!
