TESTIMONIAL

Kenneth Patterson

“I was walking with my wife just for exercise and we got two blocks away from the house and it felt like something just reached out and grabbed my heart and squeezed it as hard as it could. It was just.. This is happening to me? I can’t believe it’s happening but it is. It was devastating. Six of my arteries were blocked, I had a major surgery on my heart and they replaced all six of the arteries.”

Kenneth Patterson had a massive heart attack at age 59. Kenneth joined the Dr. Ornish’s Program for Reversing Heart Disease®

“I feel great and there’s nothing that I can’t do. I plan to see my grandchildren grow up and graduate and have children of their own. I have places to see and things that I want to do. Ultimately; it all comes down to enjoying life, and the Ornish program has helped me to do that –it can do the same for you.”

Larry S.

“If i could say one thing to someone considering joining the program, I would say that cancer, heart disease– whatever you have– is not a sentence of death, It’s not even a sentence of surgery, for that matter. This program is an alternative to the traditional methods.”

Joe D.

“When I saw the before and after scan of my heart, I started to cry. Because not only had I not gotten any worse, and not only did I have a little improvement; I had a lot of improvement. I had reversed my heart disease.”

Frequently Asked Questions

Ornish Lifestyle Medicine is basically common sense- why can’t a person just do this on their own?
True, Ornish Lifestyle Medicine relies on advice that physicians will tell their patients—eat healthy, exercise, relax, and avoid stress. However, only Ornish Lifestyle Medicine shows people how to make the comprehensive lifestyle changes required to bring this advice to their lives and make it work, day-in and day-out. The program teaches participants how to adhere to a plant-based nutrition plan, to exercise in ways that build strength and stamina without overtaxing them physically, to relax through specialized techniques, and to recognize and defuse stress. The Ornish team is truly the heart of the program as they offer support.

How can I participate?

Let your primary care provider (PCP) know that you’re interested in the program and ask your PCP any questions. If your PCP has questions, please tell your PCP to contact reNewYou Ornish Lifestyle Medicine. You can also call us at +1 513-781-9650.

Why should someone participate when a bypass or angioplasty offers a faster solution?

A bypass or angioplasty is not an experience that people willingly undergo if there is a better alternative available. Secondly, in addition to the risks inherent in any surgical procedure, a bypass or angioplasty does not treat the underlying risk factors associated with heart disease — a diet high in fat, a sedentary lifestyle, or social isolation. If these root causes are not addressed, there is a significant chance that a bypass or angioplasty may turn out to be only a temporary solution. In fact, studies show that up to 50 percent of bypass recipients must undergo an additional bypass in five to seven years, while 30 to 50 percent of angioplasty recipients must repeat the procedure within six months. For people who are committed to changing their lives for the better and taking an active role in managing their own health, the Ornish Reversal Program can be the best decision they will ever make.

Will I still see my regular doctor?

Yes. Your doctor remains in charge of your care, including your medications. Program staff regularly communicates with your doctor so that you have a whole team working together for your care.
