About the Author

Julian Whitaker MD, trained as a surgeon, has practiced medicine for over 25 yrs & 1000s have visited his Wellness Institute in California. He is seen as one of America's leading exponents of preventative medicine. He has appeared numerous times on tv and radio across America. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

From AudioFile

Dr. Whitaker gives a talk to a live audience about nonsurgical approaches to cardiovascular disease. He publishes a newsletter on health and healing and knows the research on chelation therapy, coenzyme Q10, L-arginine, and all the antioxidant vitamins and minerals. His intensity occasionally takes his narrative into the realm of the harangue, and some listeners will wish for more editing. He's more than a little angry at the medical establishment; on audio his delivery takes something away from his credibility.

Early heart disease runs in my family, and last year I got a calcium score done and scored rather high for my age. I instantly became one of the "worried well" as Dr. Whitaker puts it. In any case, it became my mission not to end up dying of heart disease at a young age, so I started to buy and read every book I could find on the subject. The most compelling and accessable program to date was that created by Dr. Dean Ornish. With his help I lost 65 pounds and got my lipid profile and blood pressure under control; however, I was still hungry for more information about how this disease progresses and how I can prevent it, along with how I can reverse what has already started. Dr. Whitaker's book was ideal in that regard. I found Dr. Whitaker's book to be easy to read, easy to understand, and filled with data and advice I could implement into my life. I really enjoyed the section wherein he discussed the various diagnostic tests and their respective predictibility. This information was somewhat different than that which had been communicated to me by the various Cardiologists I have seen; however, Dr. Whitaker's information just "sounded right." Rather than using scare tactics like some of the other books I have read, Dr. Whitaker takes an objective approach. When comparing Whitaker's book to Ornish's, the major difference I see is that Ornish has you limit fat intake to 10% a day, whereas Whitaker recommends 20%. Unfortunately, and this is only one of a few issues I have with the book, Dr. Whitaker does not back up his case for fat intake to the extent that Ornish does. So, I came away somewhat torn about how much fat I should be consuming. Overall, this is a fantastic book that I would recommend to anyone who already has heart disease or to those who are at risk for heart disease. I have already bought copies for my three brothers.

Dr. Whitaker has done an excellent job of explaining how and why we can live longer and healthier lives by taking care of our circulatory system. His frank and sincere approach comes across wonderfully and he includes many and delicious, healthy recipes that will assist you in reversing many of the symptoms of old age. Everyone who wants to live to have their grandchildren (and maybe great-grandchildren) on their laps someday should read this.

Format: Hardcover
I bought this book after my husband had his first heart attack and decided not to get depressed but to fight the condition or reverse it as much as possible. For some odd readon, my husband did not read this book, I did. It is well written and explains how heardening of the arteries and Heart Diseast can be Reversed and you will Never find this out from your "Trusted Cardiologist" as I asked him after I read the book and he did not think it could be done. This book contains a lot of information about your body, nutritional suppliments, dietary habits that will taks work to change, exercise - just have to do it or die, just incorporatinv a different lifestyle. I have started to incorporate this lifestyle myself and am incouraging my husband to also do it. I go shopping with him now and mostly put frest fruit and vegetables in the cart. We eat long cooking oatmeal for breakfast. My husband did not think this tasted very good, so I got a recipie with cherries as a bottom layer, then non-fat yogurt, then the oatmeal sprinkelet with cinnamon. He likes this better. Dr. Whitaker's book explains a whole new lifestyle to incorporate in order to Reverse Heart Disease. I already feel better on this life style and can walk farther than I could formerly as I led an inactive life. It just takes the will to want to change eating habits and the mental capitity to realize you are NOT on a diet...but a lifestyle change for the remainder of your life. Incorporate both physical excercise and mental excercise and community into your life. Learn how to lessen stress. There are classes, books, and self help tapes, and just going walking for a brisk walk per Dr. Whitaker, makes stress less. I am trying to incorporate a 30 minute walk on all non-rainning days at work during lunch.Read more ›

Format: Paperback
Although a pessimist could say that this is a low key ad for Dr. Whitaker's Wellness Institute, which in small part it is, the book provides a balanced view of just what causes heart disease and provides sobering thoughts on the fact that there is no "magic pill" or clear cut way to attack the problem. Differing views are presented and the background for such, although not clearly articulated in the book itself, is provided via the references so that the reader can further explore if more details are desired. The recipes section is somewhat of a waste of print but other than that I found the book very helpful in aiding in an understanding of heart disease and the array of possibilities for treating it. The book also pretty clearly delineates between a "preventative" program and a "reversal" program, dependent on one's personal situation and goals.

I've read quite a few books on the subject, and this is the best I've seen. It includes everything from the technical to the practical (including recipes). The author writes clearly...it was relatively easy to read considering the subject matter. I loved that he didn't say "you should never eat______." It can already be so overwhelming to make changes. This book has a lot of information, but I didn't feel overwhelmed. I was actually ENCOURAGED, not discouraged by reading it. I wish I had only bought this book...it's all I needed, and I would have saved a lot of money! I highly recommended it.
