REVERSAL OF HEART BLOCKAGE IS PROVED THEORY
DEAN ORNISH – PIONEER IN THE REVERSAL OF HEART DISEASE
Dr. Dean Ornish, a young medical doctor based in San Francisco, U S A is known as a pioneer in the reversal of heart disease. From his earlier days as medical student he learnt yoga and meditation from an Indian Guru. So deep rooted was his belief on the usefulness of the yogic way of life that he started a unique research project where he treated a group of heart patients with proven blockages in their coronary arteries (by quantitative angiography and PET scan) by the yogic way of life, vegetarian diet and stress management.Another similar group who took the medical management served as control patients. The results of the scientific trial were an eye opener for medical doctors all over the world.
Published in the “Lancet”, the most prestigious medical journal, the results showed that most of Ornish’s patients not only showed a reduction in angina and coronary risks but also angiographically proved the reversal of blockages in their coronary arteries. Magazines like Readers’ Digest and New York Times also published these reports. With Ornish’s experiment a new era was established in the management of coronary heart disease and alternatives to angioplasties and CABGs were available. In 1995, JAMA (Journal of American Medical Association) published results of Dr. Dean Ornish’s patients after 5 years of follow-up, which also showed a persistent reversal of coronary blockages. The latest edition of Braunwald’s Text Book (1997), the bible of Cardiologists, also clearly talks and recognises the reversal of blockages. Dr. Ornish propagated the ancient Indian technology of Yoga for heart disease treatment by publishing a 500-page book, which is now an international best seller. He also organizes helath talks, seminars to aware peoples about it. He also treated many famous personalities include former president of USA Bill Clinton.
