This is such an inspiring story that I just have to share it with you. It is from the book I’m currently reading “Extraordinary Healing - by Dr. Art Brownstein.”
He relays the story of one of his patients. Verne discovered he had heart disease when he had his 1st heart attack at the age of 69 in the emergency room, which was followed by another one a year later. Over the next couple of years Verne underwent all kinds of treatments like angioplasties and was using up to 13 different medications a day.
Unfortunately these treatments we only partly successful and Verne’s condition deteriorated to such an extent that the doctors recommended bypass surgery just to keep him alive and even then the prognosis at best gave Verne only a couple of years.
Verne experienced severe chest pains and could no longer walk up a small flight of stairs without almost dying. It was at this time that Verne enrolled in Dr. Ornish’s program which worked on the premises that if you remove the causes, the bodies healing system can heal it self.
The principles were based on a healthy low-carb diet , regular exercise, stress management and group support. Verne took to the program enthusiastically and within weeks his chest pain went away and his breathing became easier. He gradually regained his energy and gradually reduced the 13 different heart medication he was taking , one by one until he was using none.
Today, at the age of 87, Verne is totally free of heart disease. He hikes and travels the world extensively with his wife, teaching yoga and lecturing to senior citizens on the merits of the Dr. Ornish program.
