Stopping Heart Disease in Its Tracks | Dr Caldwell Esselstyn

Listen Now

In Episode #75, I sat down with Dr Caldwell Esselsytn Jr, or Essy, to chat about his journey in medicine and the specific findings from his clinical trials on preventing cardiovascular disease. It was a great pleasure to join Essy at his home in Cleveland with his wife Ann – they welcomed me with open arms and a delicious lunch. I am very grateful that I was able to spend this time with them and even more grateful to have been able to record Essy’s wisdom to share with you. Huge thanks to Ann – you are an absolute joy to be around and the food you prepared was incredible.

Listen to find out about Essy’s clinical trials on patients with end-stage cardiovascular disease and how to prevent cardiovascular disease with nutrition. We also discussed the bigger picture and the future of healthcare – how it’s moving from a model of disease management to disease prevention. One of the pioneers of lifestyle medicine, Essy is an absolute wealth of knowledge. If you know anyone with cardiovascular disease (a history of strokes, palpitations, arrhythmias, heart attacks, or angina) please share this episode with them.
