Heart disease, the world’s number one killer, is entirely preventable. In fact, the deadly condition can be reversed in less than three months.
That’s the hopeful message of renowned heart doctor Chauncey Crandall, M.D., in his new book, “The Simple Heart Cure.”
“People don’t have to die from heart disease,” Dr. Crandall tells Newsmax Health. “I’ve created a simple plan that people can get started on right away – and it works. I’ve seen the results consistently in my patients, day after day, year after year.”
Dr. Crandall is one of the nation’s leading cardiologists and chief of the heart transplant program at the world-renowned Palm Beach Cardiovascular Clinic.
His book contains an easy-to-follow, step-by-step plan to reverse heart disease that has been proven to work in many cardiac patients.
“Other books try to make reversing heart disease seem very complicated,” said Dr. Crandall, author of the Heart Health Report
newsletter. “The fact is, we can turn diseased hearts into healthy ones using a very simple approach.”
Dr. Crandall’s battle against heart disease is more than a professional interest – it’s a personal fight. At age 48, he suddenly found himself on the brink of a major heart attack, suffering from an artery blockage known as the “widow maker.” He had a second, smaller blockage in another coronary vessel as well.

“I’ve been a victim of heart disease, which happened suddenly, just like it happens to many other people who feel fine. This experience radically changed my health and my future, because I became even more determined to see that no one else would suffer this fate,” said Dr. Crandall.
Early in his career Dr. Crandall trained as an anthropologist, and he travels the world on medical missions. “I’ve not only taken the world’s best medical principles, that have proven effective on thousands and thousands of patients, but I’ve also traveled the world to visit cultures with no evidence of heart disease, and I combined it to create ‘The Simple Heart Cure,’” he said.
Here is some of the lifesaving advice from the ground-breaking book:
- Take two grams of fish oil every day. Fish oil helps prevent heart disease, heart-attack causing blood clots, and helps regulate your heartbeat, which prevents sudden cardiac death.
- There’s no substitute for the fiber in vegetables and fruits. Choose them fresh and whole, and preferably buy organic ones to reduce contamination from chemicals and pesticides.
- Get your teeth cleaned. Gum disease is a chief cause of inflammation, which fuels heart disease.
- Get a medical checkup if you snore. Snoring is a symptom of sleep apnea, the common sleep disorder that affects 10 to 20 million Americans and hikes the risk of high blood pressure, coronary heart disease, and heart attack.
- Walk one hour a day. This habit will sharply reduce blood pressure, prevent diabetes, and reduce the risk of heart disease. Your body will also create it’s own collateral network of tiny coronary blood vessels, which could save your live in the event of a heart artery blockage. If an hour is too exhausting, start with a 30-minute walk each day and work up to an hour.
- Add a moderate strength-building program to your daily walk. Regular strength training (also called resistance training) builds muscle and decreases the loss that comes with aging. Muscle tissue also uses more calories, so you can lose weight more easily.
- Follow a heart-healthy diet, which means cutting out or limiting high-fat meat, high-fat dairy products, processed grains, and fats. This will not only help keep your heart’s arteries clear, but also keep your heart valves functioning properly as well.
- Cut down on processed salt and learn to season your food with herbs and spices. Try curry, fennel, garlic, cinnamon, and other spices to give your food zest without adding salt, which can hike blood pressure.
- Aim to have most of the protein in your diet come from fish. Fatty fish are rich in omega-3 fatty oils; leaner fish are nutrient-rich without being high in calories.
- When you eat, fill up on fruits and vegetables before eating anything else. Unlike meat and grains, fruits and vegetables send a clear message to your brain that you’re full, and you can’t possible eat anything else.
- Faith is a strong motivator to improve. I’ve found that, when we are on our own, it’s difficult to change, but with the power of God, you can make the transformation needed to win victory over heart disease. Connect with your local church or synagogue to put the power of prayer on your side.
