I came across William Davis' Hearscan blog and have read lots of the posts. There he focusses on heart scan tests, eliminating wheat, supplementing omega 3, Vitamin D3 and a few other bits. I bought the book hoping for more detail on the tests. I know he's busily updating his book, but I didn't realise how far behind the content was here compared to the blog. It's still interesting and useful, though I'd recommend that you wait for the new edition.

He provides good detail on why Dean Ornish's work is so limited, with specifics on the outcomes from that famous study.

This guy is doing great work on empowering people to look after their health (inexpensively) and reverse coronary heart disease. If you want to avoid heart attacks and live a long and healthy and happy life, follow his guidance. If you smoke and don't ever want to give up, then he's not for you.

If you have had a calcium score test, the results can be a bit difficult to understand. This book explains what the results mean and what you can do to prevent further hardening of the arteries. The book went a bit deeper into the subject than I needed and went a lot of the information went over my head, however you can dip in and out of the chapters, take what you need out of it and use the information appropriate to your situation. It is very American in the way it is written, but they seem to be a lot more switched on to using a calcium score test as a diagnostic test. The book is reasonably priced and if you have high cholesterol and want to know more about the effects or if you have had a calcium score test, then this makes for interesting reading.

Track Your Plaque is one of the two most informative books I have ever read.I learned more about my health and risks to my health than I had ever previously learned in my life.

The book was given to me from a friend as a gift, and it truly is a GIFT.I in turn am purchasing it is a gift for close friends and recommending it to others as I have never recommended a book before.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you only read one book in the pursuit of heart health...this is the one! 30 Aug. 2005
By onewaypockets - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Finally a cutting edge book that answers all the questions your doctor or cardiologist either didn't have the time to tell you in a short office visit, or much more likely had no idea about themselves. I had ordered about a dozen different books on heart disease from Amazon before I got to this gem. Certainly a long road to get here, but I probably wouldn't have appreciated this book as much until I read all the others!

This book ties everything together, the correct diet, supplements, exercise, prescription drugs, and explains everything so it is easy to understand and why each are important to your lipid makeup, plaque deposition potential, and the health of your endothelium (I never even knew what this was before).

In the two months I have been following the recommendations outlined by Dr. Davis I have lost over 20lbs and have much more energy and mental focus. My blood pressure has gone down (even while exercising) and I am able to exercise much longer and more intensely. Most importantly my good protective HDL cholesterol has gone up 25% in two short months!

People with active heart disease or family risk factors need to read this rather than living with the uncertainty of what their future will hold for them. Believe me when I tell you, I understand the feeling of not knowing everyday when I awoke if the "ticking time bomb" was going to go off soon. Get educated and pro-active in your heart health. This is the perfect book and starting point. I was finally frightened enough to research the topic and stick with the solution. You can too!

5.0 out of 5 stars Living Proof 28 Sept. 2004
By Nancy Burlingame - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I am living proof that the program outlined in Dr. Davis's book really works! Eight years ago I was diagnosed with coronary disease through an EBT heart scan, despite low cholesterol, HDL, LDL, triglycerides, and ratio, plus a "health nut" lifestyle. I have been a patient of Dr. Davis's for the last five years. Following his program, I have been able to slow the development of plaque to the point that my risk of having a heart attack is very low. My family tree is filled with heart attack victims - my father had his first at 40 and was dead by 52 - and it is quite probable that I would have followed in his footsteps without the guidance of Dr. Davis and his Track Your Plaque program. As a registered nurse, I believe this program will change the course of medical treatment of coronary patients. As a patient, I'm extremely grateful that it came along before I ended up like my father. Cudos to you, Dr. Davis!

5.0 out of 5 stars This book saved my life and the life of my brother and son. 21 Sept. 2004
By Heart Hawk - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Every doctor and every conventional test I took said my cholesterol was low (under 100) and my heart was fine even though my close relatives were dying of heart attack. Finally, my doctor put me on Lipitor just to shut me up. I had a heart scan out of curiousity and found I had plaque but nobody could tell me why. I followed the book's advice and had my lipoproteins tested along with my brother and son. Sure enough, we all had the same genetic blood disorder, something called Lp(a), that was causing heart attack in our family. Now we simply take niacin (a B vitamin) and it has greatly reduced the problem. I hate to accuse anyone of malpractice but every doctor and cardiologist should read this book. Perhaps my mother would still be alive if they did!

5.0 out of 5 stars The single best resource for taking charge of your heart health 8 April 2007
By Warren Widmayer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book and its author are at the forefront of a revolution in heart health care. It contains an incredibly extensive and thorough discussion of the state of the art of preventive cardiology as of 2004, when it was written. (The author maintains a web site with even more up-to-date information as well as a blog with almost daily postings on new developments.) Most of the explanation and advice is still way ahead of the way cardiology practitioners interact with patients today in most major medical centers.

The book is written in plain English and an engaging style, and makes the technical concepts easily understood, even to people (like me) with no medical background.

The author advocates the use of non-invasive, low-radiation, widely available heart scans to determine the extent of coronary plaque. If plaque is found, he next explains the use of new cholesterol tests that analyze cholesterol in more detail than standard tests. Finally, he explains what to do to correct the abnormalities the detailed analysis may uncover.

The book will be of most interest to people who are willing to take control of their health and who may even be willing to challenge their doctors to catch up with recent advances in the diagnosis and treatment of coronary artery disease. The book is bluntly critical of the traditional cardiology strategies employed today in most hospitals and cardiology practices. As noted by another reviewer, he does advocate taking some supplements, but also tells you which supplements he thinks are worthless, based on reviews of numerous studies and his own experience treating hundreds of patients.

I found this book in my post-stent implant procedure investigation of the state of the art in heart disease treatment (I'm 50 years old). I wish I had found it and read it years earlier. I might have avoided having had the stent implanted to begin with. Thankfully, it's not too late to start applying the strategies he advocates.

If you want to see the future of preventive heart medicine today, explained in understandable, practical terms and concepts, this is the book to get.

1.0 out of 5 stars Do not buy this edition! shouldn't be sold anymore!!!!!!! 12 Feb. 2012
By Ana - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
There is a new edition that seems to have the new and very important discoveries in heart disease (vitamin d and K2) that are not even mentioned in this edition!
I was very disappointed to find this out after reading it!!!
I can not understand how they can still sell it if it lacks the new and really important information that makes the previous incomplete and not really useful!
