Book Description

Heart disease kills more people than any other medical condition. And no one is more aware of this than top cardiologist Dr. Chauncey Crandall, who has performed over 40,000 heart procedures during his career. In his new book The Simple Heart Cure you’ll find this top doc’s groundbreaking approach to preventing and reversing heart disease — an approach honed by his study of foreign cultures free of heart disease and decades of experience helping patients achieve a healthier heart at any age. Dr. Crandall is living proof of his program’s success. At the age of 48, and with no major risk factors, he found himself in the ER with a “widow-maker” blockage of his main coronary artery. After emergency heart surgery, he recovered from heart disease using the same course of treatment he recommends to his thousands of patients — and details for your benefit in The Simple Heart Cure. His unique perspective as both doctor and patient helps him empathize with the difficulties in making a transition from years of bad habits to a heart-healthy way of life. Plus, Dr. Crandall believes in using every weapon in his medical arsenal to help his patients recover — conventional medicine, emerging treatments, lifestyle changes, even alternative therapies. So whether you just want to prevent heart problems, or you’ve already had a heart attack, you’ll find the help you need in The Simple Heart Cure capped by tasty heart-healthy menus, and a 90-day week-by-week plan to help you start taking action immediately.

The technical explanations of heart disease were good and easy to understand. However, the specific diet and exercise recommendations were outdated. Such as eating margarine instead of butter, poopooing coconut oil, little or no red meat or eggs, eating nuts sparingly and eating whole grains. Grass fed, grass finished beef is high in Omega 3s and eggs eaten raw or where the yolks are runny provide a lot of nutrition.
I based my opinion on the findings of 2 doctors ... Dr. Mercola and Dr. Al Sears. The diet recommended by Dr. Mercola is closest to the Paleo diet and as follows:
* A large-scale, 30-year long study found that people who regularly ate one ounce of nuts at least seven times per week were 20 percent less likely to die for any reason, compared to those who avoided nuts in their diet
* Eating nuts at least five times a week corresponded to a 29 percent reduction in mortality risk due to heart disease; a 24 percent reduction for respiratory disease; and an 11 percent reduction for cancer
* In order for your body to adapt to burning fat instead of sugar, replace non-vegetable carbohydrates in your diet with high-quality healthful fats. Raw nuts are one source of such fats

Dr. Mercola recommends focusing on eating whole, unprocessed foods while avoiding grains and sugars which are precursors to disease. Consume a diet primarily high in healthy fats like coconuts, avocados, olive oil, butter and raw nuts like almonds(ideally between 50-75 percent in your diet) and raw, organic vegetables. Next, consume good protein, such as grass-fed, organic meats and organic pasteurized eggs. His current recommendation is one gram of protein for every kilogram of lean body mass, increasing it by 25% if you are pregnant or training for athletic events.

Even if discovering Dr. Crandall's book at just the right moment hadn't rescued me from the depression and bewilderment of my stent event and given me a shining hope and promising path forward, I'd still say read his book! But it did, so I can endorse the advice given wholeheartedly. I'm living his advice right now 9 months after finding myself in the emergency room; 40 lbs lighter, healthier and happier than I've been or felt in way over a decade. His plan is simple and straightforward, lifestyle choices affect our life and he explains how. This particularly helped me, understanding how it all works for and against us, then in unvarnished terms he explains what to do about it. And if you do it and I did you're on your way all the way back from heart attack, heart disease and it's been wonderful. Living Dr. Crandall's advice and seeing the results has been such an uplifting experience it inspired my better half to create a blog about our journey called "Fix It Plan" (found via google by adding dot com). For me this was not only a life saver but I've got to say again ... a life improver, I'm back and better.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Simple Heart Cure book November 14, 2013
By Angela
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Dr Crandall lays out his plan very clearly. It is easy for anyone to understand it. I have started it and can already see a difference.It is a very small book but packed with information and recipes. It is easy to reread it if you need to because it is so compact and if you need to look something up you can find it easily.I had planned to get a heart ct but after I read in this book it could be the equivalent of 400 chest xrays,I am so glad I did not and read this first.

5.0 out of 5 stars this book saved my life December 31, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was having angina pain for two weeks and went to visit my doctor who confirmed angine. I did a google search and discovered this book. I had a "widowmaker" heart attack just after my visit to the doctor on the 11th of December and because i was reading The Simple Heart Cure i knew what was happening so my husband rang the ambulance. My cardiologist said we did the right thing otherwise i could have been dead. I believe this book came across my path just in time.
I had an angiogram and angioplasty, they discovered the LAD was 95% blocked plus two other blockages. The specialist inserted two stents and I am now three weeks on from the procedure. The Simple Heart cure book has given me lots of advice on exercise and eating a more healthy diet which i will follow.
I will also add that i have been diabetic for 52 years (genetic maturity onset type 3) i have tried to take care of myself over the years with diet and exercise.. I am also a Christian and believe that God has a plan for my life.
Thank you Dr Crandall for making your book and the other literature available.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book January 8, 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I found this book to provide the most relevant information in a way that is easy for anyone to understand. This is a good book for anyone to read whether or not you currently have any heart or cholesteral health issues ----- especially since many people do not even realize that they are developing problems until a serious event happens. Glad I purchased ---- plan to purchase additional copies for my brother and a friend who can benefit from this information.
