Great news! I had my heart cateterization this morning and there is no blockage. They showed me the video of the blood (dye) coming into the heart and through the old stent and branching out to all the arteries. The stress test was false, which happens. Two other arteries are blocked 40% but I am confident that my new heart healthy diet will lower that. I gives me more encouragement to continue with the vegan lifestyle.
Thanks for your concerns.
Sharon

Ps I have seen “Forks over Knives” and watch it and a couple others from time time to keep up my determination.

Hugs and light to you, Sharon.

I also recommend Dr. Joel Fuhrman's "Eat to Live" and his other books. He does product-push on his website (annoying) but his work is based on reduction of heart disease and cancer. President Bill Clinton became mostly vegan after following Dr. Fuhrman's plan.

It seems like it's good to look at Fuhrman, Esselstyn, Forks Over Knives etc. and get the best overview of what will work for you.

My personal favorite is the Blue Zones books. I mean, research can show different things. But the healthiest, longest-lived people in the world seems like the best proof to me!

Sharon, just said a prayer for your surgery and recovery. emoticon You are on the right path. If you haven't seen the documentary "Forks Over Knives" it will encourage you as you see others who have been in similar situations reverse the damage of heart disease.

Heart disease

I have heart disease. 3 1/2 ears ago I had a blocked artery and a stent. Recently after a routine check up the doctor ordered a stress test. It showed more blockage and now I have an appointment next week with an interventional cardiologist. Surprisingly I have no symptoms, much like the first time.

Recently I ran across the documentary “Eating”. Then I read “Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease by Dr. Esselstyn. I also have Dr Ornish’s book of the same. This
led me to the vegan life. First I will hopefully have the blockage removed and then go on with my life and never have more.

I wish I could tell my children and other young people to stop with the cancer/heart disease diet.
