Dean Ornish, M.D. is highly regarded as “The Father of Lifestyle Medicine,” which is the fastest-growing trend in medicine today. His latest national bestselling book, UNDO IT! How Simple Lifestyle Changes Can Reverse Most Chronic Diseases, will publish in paperback on January 4, 2022, the same day of this announcement from a panel of nutrition experts convened by U.S. News. Dr. Ornish is available for in-studio and Zoom interviews to discuss the powerful impact simple lifestyle changes can have in our health and wellness.
For more than four decades, Dean Ornish, M.D. has directed revolutionary research proving, for the first time, that lifestyle changes can often reverse—undo!—the progression of many of the most common, costly, and disabling chronic diseases and even begin reversing aging at a cellular level. This often occurs in just a few weeks or less—and at any age.
Medicare and many insurance companies are now covering Dr. Ornish’s lifestyle medicine program for reversing chronic diseases because it consistently achieves bigger changes in lifestyle, better clinical outcomes, larger cost savings, and greater adherence than have ever been reported—based on 40 years of clinical research published in the leading peer-reviewed medical and scientific journals.
In this landmark book, he and Anne Ornish present a simple yet powerful new unifying theory explaining why these same lifestyle changes can reverse so many different chronic diseases and how quickly these benefits occur. They describe what it is, why it works, and how you can do it:
Eat well: a whole foods, plant-based diet naturally low in fat and sugar and high in flavor—primarily fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes, and soy products in their natural, unprocessed forms. The “Ornish Diet” has been consistently rated “#1 for Heart Health” by U.S. News & World Report every year since 2011.
Move more: moderate exercise such as walking and strength training. Do what you enjoy—if you like it, you’ll do it.
Stress less: techniques such as meditation and gentle yoga that can enable you to do more and stress less.
Love more: how love and intimacy transform loneliness and depression into healing.
With the Undo It! program, many people are able to reduce or even discontinue medications to lower their cholesterol, blood pressure, or blood sugar they thought they would have to take forever (under their doctor’s supervision, of course). As an example of the power of this program, patients with heart disease so severe they were told they needed to undergo a heart transplant improved so much in only nine weeks that they no longer needed one!
Our bodies often have a remarkable capacity to begin healing if we treat the underlying lifestyle factors that cause them—and more quickly than we had once believed. These findings are giving millions of people new hope and new choices.
With a variety of recipes, easy-to-follow meal plans, tips for stocking your kitchen and eating out, recommended exercises, stress-reduction advice, and inspiring patient stories of life-transforming benefits of reversing chronic diseases—Undo It! will help readers to reverse and prevent a wide range of chronic diseases—and the only side-effects are good ones!
