thank you for your kind words! :)
It is my pleasure to be here and this site is my
allied in the first hour after I got a diagnostic of
Coronary Arteries Disease.

Dr. Pinckney helped me, together with Drs.
Esselstyn, McDougall, Ornish and all the other good
doctors, including mine here in Rio that has modern
approaches with patients like me. I was
asymptomatic, with 50 and 70 % blockage in 2
coronaries. My good doctor has a PhD that based
his thesis on clinic treatment and not mechanical
solutions in cases like mine. He believes in
reversal but says that no client would do what I did
to get CAD reversed. Here in Brazil only one doctor
that I know is aware of the Vegan solution, but his
clinic is in Curitiba, Parana. (very far from my

I consider that now I have a new challenge, (easier
than to reverse CAD). My new challenge is to reverse
Osteoporosis and from the appointment I got here,
the bone doctor said I have good chances to arrest
or even to reverse it. On top of it I will see a
different bone clinic that prescribes a better
drug, without the possible side effect of Fosamax.

Besides drugs (one is calcium), it is necessary to
get enough sunlight (plenty here in Rio) to fix
calcium to the bones, to do more exercise and other
small things. I did not take seriously the need of
calcium before, despite Dr. E. book to recommend it,
because I thought Osteoporosis it was a woman
problem. I would now go as far to recommend all of
my aging friends to do the Osteoporosis test, as it
is simple and takes no more than half of an hour.

I will try to be positive in what I got so far. My
Vegan lifestyle helped me to get good blood results
(I published the results here in this site).

Vegan and VLF food solved many problems for me, and
I am never tired to repeat most of the benefits I
got till today:

1) Reversed CAD, as last PET scan and tread mill
tests are OK, as opposite to the tests I had before
going VLF, Vegan food and exercise new lifestyle!
2) Lost 30 plus pounds (15 plus kg.)
3) I got rid of my medicine for blood pressure! 14X9
now 12X8
4) Solved embarrassing "Irritable Bowel Syndrome"! 
5) Reduced statins pills from 70 to 35 mg a week.
6) Less allergy. Some skin problems were reduced by
7) Less headaches. (Maybe due to solving milk
(Benefits perhaps due to less clogging in sinus,
allowing air to flow?).
8) No big belly (considered a big cardiac risk), as
I lost weight
9 ) Good results in colonoscopy: no Polyps!
10) Good result in Carotid Test.

Who knows if I reverse Osteoporosis I may solve
other health problems that I may not be aware?
(kidding) :)

You wrote that you believe in CAD reversal. I am a
living proof that it is possible. My doctors here
probably saw one of the first CAD reversals with me!

All the Best!!!
