Alternatives to medical care by
Dr. Richard Ruhling.
Heart disease is reversible, heart attacks
preventable, angina resolves on a low fat, low cholesterol diet and
exercise--the same as for high blood pressure, diabetes and obesity. Drugs
usually help symptoms, but
don't address the causes.
“How to Reverse Heart Disease” was the cover story of U.S. News
& World Report, 8-6-90 featuring Dr. Dean Ornish, a California cardiologist
whose program was like “The Pritikin Program for Diet
and Exercise," a bestselling book in the 70’s.
Does it work? Salvatore Frascinella was a 65-year old executive with 3
cardiologists who thought he was too risky for bypass surgery. They had
him on a dozen pills a day and he was getting worse. Desperate, he
attended a Total Health Seminar and in 8 weeks, he was off all his drugs
and had resumed playing tennis. That was in 1984.
Alive and well at 86, still on no drugs, he said, "You saved my
life." But anyone can do it if they are willing to do

Exercise for the American Heart Assoc. He tells this patients that mild (Grade 1 or 2 chest pain) is desirable
in a walking program. Walk in the presence
of mild pain or pressure as a stimulus to dilate (open) the arteries.
Athletes work to the point of aching muscles. The heart is a muscle that
is not damaged by the ache, just don’t push to the point of severe
(Grade 3 or 4) pain.
Doctors often give the idea that diet is okay,
but when you get serious, come
to them for real help. But Salvatore's experience shows that diet and exercise
were stronger than medical care, because they wouldn’t operate on
takes many years to plug up our arteries on a high cholesterol diet. It
won't go away in a day or two, but a low fat diet will result in blood
that is less sticky--it will circulate better and allow you to exercise.
Soon you will be doing more and more with less and less pain.
