UnDo It! Drs Dean and Anne Ornish
Dean Ornish, M.D. has directed revolutionary research proving, for the first time, that lifestyle changes can often reverse-undo-the progression of many of the most common and costly chronic diseases and even begin reversing aging at a cellular level. Dr. Ornish’s lifestyle medicine program for reversing chronic disease consistently achieves bigger changes in lifestyle, better clinical outcomes, larger cost savings, and greater adherence than have ever been reported—based on 40 years of research published in the leading peer-reviewed medical and scientific journals. Now, in this landmark book, he and Anne Ornish present a simple yet powerful new unifying theory explaining why these same lifestyle changes can reverse so many different chronic diseases and how quickly these benefits occur. Described as the first program scientifically proven to reverse heart disease by optimising four important areas of your life, and is now covered by Medicare in the US.
