 “Heart disease is a toothless paper tiger that never need to exist and if it does exist it never needs to progress”…Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn.

Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn’s Amazing Long-Term Study

In 1985 Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, a surgeon with the Cleveland Clinic took 24 patients, of which five were told by their cardiologist they would not live out the year.

 These patients had collectively experienced 49 cardiovascular events:

  • 15 cases of angina
  • 13 cases of disease progression
  • 7 bypass surgeries
  • 4 heart attacks
  • 3 strokes
  • 2 angioplasties
  • 2 worsening stress tests

Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn’s results after dietary intervention:

  • Cholesterol lowered from an average of 246 to below 150
  • Disease progression had been stopped and many had experienced reversal
  • Angina improved or eliminated
  • Exercise capacity increased, sexual function restored
  • No further cardiovascular events, drugs or procedures

Results from 6 patients who left Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn’s study experienced:

  • 4 cases of angina
  • 2 cases of ventricular tachycardia
  • 4 bypass surgeries
  • 1 angioplasty
  • 1 case congestive heart failure
  • 1 death

That’s 13 events in 6 patients who did not maintain the diet vs. no events in 18 patients who were compliant!
