Subject:         I got reversed my coronary heart disease according to the PET Scan and Thread mill stress tests I had today!!!
Date: April 2, 2011 at 12:52 am PST

Dear friends,

I am very happy today. After 3 and half years of being diagnosed with coronary heart disease I had today the courage to see if the disease had arrested, got worst or had reversed. Both PET Scan and thread mill stress tests showed that the heart now is normal.

All started 37 months ago when in a routine checkup I failed a thread mill stress tests and with following Pet Scan and computerized axial tomography scans the disease was reconfirmed.

Then I entered the Internet and looking if there was a way to fix it and if possible to reverse it. The site, book of Dr. Esselstyn and this forum were my day-by-day way to change my lifestyle to Vegan and Very Low Fat plant based food.

After few weeks I lost about 30 pounds, my blood pressure came from 13X9 down to 11X7 when my doctor asked me to stop taking BP medicine.

After about a year he asked me to reduce statins, as my cholesterol was too low for him. Now my total cholesterol is 100 and in next appointment I will ask if I can reduce statins a little bit more to try reach 120 to 130 marks.

A plus of all of this diet was to solve digestion problems I had that what a doctor diagnosed as "Irritable Bowel Syndrome". Plant based food is easier to digest and seems that my body likes to flow it not too fast...

I would like to add that Dr. Neal Pinckney excellent online book and his posts helped me a lot. I have also to add that almost everyday I walk “briskly” for about 40 minutes and that white tea is my favorite drink.

I am writing all this to encourage others to be persistent in changing their lifestyles to prevent or to try to reverse this disease.

(Please note that I am not a medical doctor and that this is just to present my personal case and that I cannot give medical advice, but I would be happy to share my experience with Vegan and VLF lifestyles).
