Ted Talk Thursday ~ Heart Healthy

There’s no point in giving up something you enjoy unless you get something back that’s even better, and quickly. ~ Dean Ornish ~

I had planned on a totally different talk for my Ted Talk Thursday but recent developments of heart issues with two members of my family within the last week changed my direction today.  I’ve just begun my research into what changes to make to improve heart health through lifestyle and diet, and so today I bring you two talks by Dr. Dean Ornish. 

For over 35 years, Dr. Ornish has directed clinical research demonstrating, for the first time, that lifestyle changes may begin to reverse even severe coronary heart disease, without drugs or surgery. Dr. Ornish is known for his lifestyle-driven approach to the control of coronary artery disease (CAD) and other chronic disease.  He is the author of six books and The Ornish Diet was rated #1 for heart health by U.S. News & World Report in 2011 and 2012.

In the season of Lent, perhaps we can all take a look around to see what we can give up, change or improve to make us all a little healthier.  As Dr. Ornish demonstrated,  anything that creates a sense of connection and community and love is really healing.  Even though we thought we were doing pretty good, we’ll be making some big changes in the campo.
