West Bloomfield, MI -- (ReleaseWire) -- 03/03/2016 --Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, of the Cleveland Clinic, is a pioneer and leader in the field of preventing and reversing heart disease.

Dave Willits, a Michigan man who had a massive heart attacked, opened his eyes in the recovery room and saw his two boys and his sister. His 18-year-old said, "You needed three stents. You flat-lined three times, and they had to shock you eleven times. They didn't think you were going to make it."
Five days later, Dave was released from the hospital and his sister suggested he check into a vegetarian or a Mediterranean diet. "I did a web search and learned that a plant-based (vegan) diet was more successful than either of those, by a significant margin. More research led me to order Dr. Esselstyn's book, Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease. And through his website, I emailed Dr. Esselstyn for more information," stated Willits. Less than twelve hours later, his phone rang. The voice on the other end of the line said, "Hi, this is Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn."
"I was stunned. Since that day I have not ingested anything that can damage my endothelial cells. I have been 100% committed to plant-based eating without compromise, and I will be for the rest of my very long very healthy life!"
