Reversing Heart Disease
Lifestyle changes really can reverse heart disease and also prevent other diseases. For the many regular visitors of our site this comes as no surprise. Others may find this statement rather odd.
This concept, however, goes beyond taking freshly squeezed orange juice for breakfast and walking the dog for 10 minutes each evening. You will need dedication, but it is worth the effort.
There is increasing evidence that what we have been saying is true. But what are some of the more common, and useful, lifestyle changes that one can implement to reducing the risk of heart disease and other diseases, such as cancer?
Reversing heart disease with lifestyle changes:
Partake in regular exercise (at least three times a week)
Avoid stressful situations
Eat a healthy, well balanced diet
Generally try to be fit and active

Harvard School of Public Health and Lifestyle Changes
So, what is Harvard saying?
Dr. Walter Willett, chairman of the department of nutrition at the Harvard School of Public Health said In a talk at the Closing Plenary Session of the American Society of Nephrology's 38th Annual Meeting and Scientific Exposition held in Philadelphia:
“Preventing some of the most common causes of death and disability in America may be easier than we think. According to, simple dietary and lifestyle changes could do the trick”.
Dr. Willett went on to say:
”more than 80 percent of coronary heart disease and more than 90 percent of type 2 diabetes might be prevented if people would exercise more and eat better.”
Most people realize that this information is true, yet still try to find the solution to all health related problems in a bottle of pills. Domestic pharmacy bills could be dramatically reduced if people would only follow this advice. Moreover for people that are already sick, diet and exercise really can reduce heart disease.
Like most things in life, there is a right way and a wrong way to approach this particular problem. Starvation diets just wont work and neither will spending hours and hours sweating away in a gym. It is important that you choose a lifestyle that you are able to live with and take it in gradual steps. We are creatures of habit and changing hamburgers for salads overnight is too much of a sacrifice. Click here for more advice: Reversing heart disease.
