About the Program
The Dr. Dean Ornish Program for Reversing Heart Disease is a unique and innovative approach to treating CAD (Coronary Artery Disease). The program is designed for people who want to prevent heart disease, reduce risks for developing heart disease, and learn lifestyle changes to help manage diabetes, hypertension and heart disease. The program is scientifically proven to reverse the progression of heart disease through lifestyle modification that includes moderate aerobic exercise, stress management techniques, group support and a low-fat whole-foods nutrition plan. Participants experience no increased health risks, and in fact, may reduce their need for invasive procedures. In addition, participants experience a reduction in blood pressure and cholesterol levels, loss of weight and body fat, decreased level of stress, and a reduction in the frequency and severity of angina (chest pain).
