Heart disease is the top cause of early death among men and women, but can it be avoided and reversed? Joel Kahn, MD, at the Kahn Center for Cardiac Longevity in Bingham Farms, Michigan, answers that question with a resounding YES. In fact, he routinely demonstrates heart disease reversal at his heart clinic near Detroit.

Over time, cholesterol-laden plaque builds up in your arteries and causes a condition known as atherosclerosis, commonly called heart disease. The plaque accumulates and keeps your blood from flowing properly. This puts you at serious risk of a stroke, heart failure, and/or a heart attack.
Dr. Kahn promotes a series of thoroughgoing lifestyle changes to undo the damage that’s been done to your heart and blood vessels. These are the cornerstones of his heart-health program:
Doing 30 minutes of daily exercise helps you lose weight, stabilizes your blood pressure and blood sugars, and improves your cholesterol numbers.
Smoking increases the buildup of plaque in your arteries.
Carrying around excess body weight increases your chance of developing clogged arteries and of subsequently having a heart attack.
Diets made up predominantly of plants are a powerful source of preventive medicine.
Stress management is a crucial part of keeping your heart healthy because stress can drive behaviors that increase your risk of heart disease.
Sleep deprivation has been linked to a number of harmful chronic conditions, including heart disease.
Dr. Kahn also recommends that you seek social support to help you maintain your lifestyle changes. To make it easier for you, the team at Kahn Center for Cardiac Longevity developed an innovative 14-Day Heart Health Bootcamp that walks you through all the steps you need to take to totally transform your health.
The program educates men and women on diet, exercise, supplements, lifestyle changes, and helps you build new habits to support changes.
For four decades, Dr. Kahn has practiced what he preaches, eating a diet made up predominantly of plants. To make the most of your plant-based diet and to get the nutrition you need, keep these tips in mind:
At your consultation, Dr. Kahn customizes your heart disease reversal plan so you’ll know exactly how to implement a plant-based diet, which supplements to take, and how to make lifestyle changes that enhance your longevity and the quality of your life.
