Finally a highly respected doctor speaks out about the power of food and exercise to change illness into health! For over 34 years, Dr. Dean Ornish has directed clinical research demonstrating, for the first time, that comprehensive lifestyle changes can reverse many physical difficulties, including severe coronary heart disease, without drugs or surgery. He is the founder and president of the non-profit Preventive Medicine Research Institute and Clinical Professor of Medicine at the University of California, San Francisco, the author of six books, all national bestsellers, including: Dr. Dean Ornish's Program for Reversing Heart Disease;Eat More, Weigh LessLove & Survival; and his most recent book, The Spectrum (selected by TIME magazine as “One of the 10 Notable Diet Books of 2008”). And he is being recognized by those that matter: he was appointed by President Clinton to the White House Commission on Complementary and Alternative Medicine Policy and by President Obama to the White House Advisory Group on Prevention, Health Promotion, and Integrative and Public Health. He was chosen by LIFE magazine as “one of the fifty most influential members of his generation;” recognized by People magazine as “one of the most interesting people of 1996”; and by Forbes magazine as “one of the seven most powerful teachers in the world.” http://www.ornishspectrum.com
