The Esselstyn Story
IT ALL STARTED THIRTY-FOUR YEARS AGO.
Dr. Esselstyn had become frustrated…
As a surgeon, he was doing little to prevent disease in the next unsuspecting victim.
Surgery could save lives, but it was not stopping the progression of disease. After careful research and study, Dr. Esselstyn began to notice that the problems that plagued his patients in the US weren’t universal.
So, he began to look at the causes of these diseases.
The fact was that many cultures around the world that consumed a plant-based diet had much lower rates of heart disease and cancer than Americans.
He and his wife, Ann Crile Esselstyn, soon adopted a plant-based diet, and Dr. Esselstyn began implementing it as a treatment with a small group of patients in a landmark study.
And, a curious thing happened… his patients got better.
Today, the Esselstyn family has successfully counseled thousands of people from all over the world on how to reverse and prevent lifestyle-related diseases.
But their work is far from complete…
