Reversing Heart Disease with a
Whole Food/Plant-based Diet
Patients enrolled at the Montefiore Einstein Cardiac Wellness Program are experiencing dramatic improvements in their health. Many of these patients who have been diagnosed with heart or blood vessel disease are losing weight, lowering their cholesterol and blood pressure, improving their energy levels and even reversing type 2 diabetes. How? Simply by making some key diet and lifestyle changes under the care and guidance of experts at the Wellness Program.
The Cardiac Wellness Program, created and directed by Robert Ostfeld, MD, MSc and co-directed by Lauren Graf, MS, RD brings a unique, nutrition-centered approach to the management of cardiovascular disease. The program aims to prevent and reverse heart disease with a whole food/plant-based diet. Dr. Ostfeld and Ms. Graf work with patients to embrace a diet that includes no animal products and consists of vegetables, fruits, whole grains, beans, legumes such as lentils and chickpeas, a small amount of nuts and avocado, as well as dairy alternatives.
In parts of the world where people eat largely a plant-based diet, such as rural China and Central Africa, heart disease is less common. “If you take someone from that kind of environment and move them to the Western world, research shows that within a generation or two, they catch up to us” on heart disease, explains Dr. Ostfeld. “Genetics don’t change that quickly so this is a result of lifestyle–likely in part because of the toxic Western diet.”
“We have been humbled and awestruck by our results” says Dr. Ostfeld. When asked about why the program, still in its infancy, is meeting with such success, he explains, “Our patients are presented with scientific evidence of this diet’s powerful effects during our four-hour Wellness Program. It’s harder to get all the information across during a 20 minute patient visit.” In addition to the dramatic impact on heart disease, research continues to mount on the effectiveness of a plant-based diet in reducing the risk of many forms of cancer, osteoporosis, chronic kidney disease, many digestive diseases including IBS as well as autoimmune diseases.
