This work features in the eCornell certificate in plant based nutrition and is best implemented in conjunction with the understanding of the work of T. Colin Campbell Phd. and Doug Lisle, Phd.

Treating the Cause to Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease presented by Caldwell Esselstyn, MD at the 2012 annual Enhancing Health with Plant-Based Nutrition medical conference sponsored by Northwest VEG and the Portland Adventist Hospital Association. This is a professional level event offering a college credit training opportunity to learn the many health benefits of adopting a plant based diet.

Caldwell B. Esselstyn, Jr., received his B.A. from Yale University and his M.D. from Western Reserve University. In 1956, pulling the No. 6 oar as a member of the victorious United States rowing team, he was awarded a gold medal at the Olympic Games. He was trained as a surgeon at the Cleveland Clinic and at St. George's Hospital in London. In 1968, as an Army surgeon in Vietnam, he was awarded the Bronze Star.

Dr. Esselstyn has been associated with the Cleveland Clinic since 1968. During that time, he has served as President of the Staff and as a member of the Board of Governors. He chaired the Clinic's Breast Cancer Task Force and headed its Section of Thyroid and Parathyroid Surgery.

His scientific publications number over 150, "The Best Doctors in America" 1994-1995 published by Woodward and White cites Dr. Esselstyn's surgical expertise in the categories of endocrine and breast disease. In 1995 he published his bench mark long-term nutritional research arresting and reversing coronary artery disease in severely ill patients. That same study was updated at 12 years and reviewed beyond twenty years in his book, Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease, making it one of the longest longitudinal studies of its type. It is most compelling, as no compliant patients have sustained disease progression. Today, beyond 20 years compliant patients continue to thrive.

Dr. Esselstyn and his wife, Ann Crile Esselstyn, have followed a plant-based diet for more than 26 years. Dr. Esselstyn presently directs the cardiovascular prevention and reversal program at The Cleveland Clinic Wellness Institute.

  1. 8:36 cites “Peter Libby. Atherosclerosis: The New View. Scientific
    American. 2002”, in case anyone feels interested.

  2. Food should not be bad for you…… processed food has too much fat, salt,
    sugar and additives in them making them unhealthy. People need to go to
    their favorite food processors website, click on the CONTACT link and send
    them an email asking them to reduce the amount of fat, salt, SUGAR and
    additives in the foods they produce. Their common answer is that they are
    producing what the customers want. You have to let them know that consumers
    want healthier food choices with less salt, fat and SUGAR in them. It only
    takes a minute to send them an email. Food should not be bad for you.
    There is an obesity epidemic leading to increases in heart disease, high
    blood pressure and cancer.

    Do something — make a difference

  3. I was amazed by the simplicity and strength Mr. Caldwell Esselstyn.while
    delivering such an important information to us, potential cardiovascular
    patients.

    What amazed me more is the number of viewers that had watched this video.
    So, few people saw it?!
    But, if woulb be a funny video or a popular star it would be a milion of
    viewers so far.

    We are realy strange species.

    1. +alex campbell Absolutely. Approaching his mid 80's, he takes no
      medication, typically swims a mile a day, eats an entirely plant based
      diet. Hopefully he will be with us for many, many years to come.

      If you have the opportunity to see him speak in person, go for it!

  4. This is very convincing and he presents a plausible case. His own health
    speaks volumes too, but there are so many contradictory messages regarding
    health, e.g.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ysdknRPlLcQ which describes a
    study that shows nut consumption reduces mortality including from coronary
    heart disease – I’m confused, which study is right?

    1. +Peter Brady Really, really good question. The problem you’re finding is
      that you’re finding ‘snippet’s of nutrition online, whereas this doctor is
      presenting a more holistic principle. Take the peanut butter ok – ok, just
      blended peanuts bad? No, not at all – but very dense in calories, then we
      move to ‘dose’ and it becomes more complicated. Nutrition is complicated.
      Please follow this channel, a lot of these ‘3 min videos’ will be debunked.
      That’s meant in no way disrespectful to to them, but 3 mins isn’t enough to
      give you enough data to make informed choice. Thank you for your comment.
      If you really want clarity – email me , adam@intelligenteating.org – no
      charge. I do this to help people, not make cash.

  5. Dr. Esselstyn is an amazingly generous man. I am a practicing plant based
    physician in Baltimore and Dr. Esselstyn invited me to “apprentice” his
    seminar at the Cleveland Clinic to learn how he teaches his
    patients/attendees. He regularly allows other physicians to learn from him
    and use his materials at no charge. I’d like to respond to Peter Brady
    about the nut issue. All the doctors who recommend a plant based diet agree
    that a Whole Food Plant Based diet that is free of sugar, oil and salt is
    the absolute healthiest diet for humans. There is some controversy about
    nuts. For people without known heart disease – a small handful of nuts a
    day are quite healthful. But, for people with known heart disease – the
    Esselstyn diet (no nuts) has been proven to be more effective than any
    other diet intervention – that has been studied and proven. Until someone
    replicates his work using nuts and gets the same results – his diet stands
    as the most effective way to reverse heart disease. He is well aware of the
    recent evidence on nuts and good health, but, he remains steadfast on ‘no
    nuts’ out of a concern that ‘a small handful of nuts’ will turn into bowls
    of nuts – which is likely too much of a good thing. It is a very strict
    diet, but, heart surgery, heart attacks, congestive heart failure, and
    sudden death are very serious problems. We are all very fortunate that he
    has done this life saving research.

    1. +Dana Simpler The intention of being strict about no nuts is a message to
      the general population as people struggle with the pleasure trap – it could
      be suggested that those post CABG have struggled more with the pleasure
      trap and so the advice to abstain remains. Enjoy your time with the doc,
      he’s a very generous man.

  6. i bet the only reason heart disease exists is because a plant modification
    that allowed for the first plant to human transferance of plant disease =
    heart disease. im just making this up but who knows.
