This review is from: Dr. Dean Ornish's Programme for Reversing Heart Disease (Mass Market Paperback)
This book I heard about it while attending a lecture in Auckland Newzeland.One of cardiac patient stood up and said it is my bible.This lecture was in a church hall attended by cardiologist,psychologist.patients.Went to library in Auckland asked about the book ,they did not have it but they ordered it for me for 17 NZ dollar.This was in 1996.I was interested as I have familial high cholesterol.Fallowed the program of reversing heart condition for three weeks.Cholesterol dropped from 7.4 to 4.8 meqper L.Did blood tests before and after the experiment on my self but the liver enzymes raised to double the figures before the experiment.This book is the first book which gave me hope that we could control all our illnesses by healthy life style including diet ,exercise,relaxation dealing with stress ,accept what we get no rat race .This book I recommended for all people who are interested in their health.I gave it as present this time for a friend .I have thousands of books but the first book is the republic by Plato and second to it is this book this book was recommended by me many times for people.Once a minister of health in middle east wanted to borrow it I refused to give it as this book is more important than the minister.The price in WH smith is 14 pounds.All my neibours bought it.
