The Dean Ornish Program for Reversing Heart Disease is featured in two separate articles in this month’s Prevention Magazine. The February issue, which hit stands today, is dedicated to heart health in honor of American Heart Month

“On a typical American diet, arteries are particularly clogged, even when cholesterol levels are not high.”

The first feature, “8 Big Heart Mistakes You’re Making Now: Fix Them and Put Your Body’s Age in Instant Reverse,” references key mistakes people should ask about their heart health. In the fourth mistake, Dr. Ornish is quoted saying, “On a typical American diet, arteries are particularly clogged, even when cholesterol levels are not high.” Reporter Aviva Datz cites evidence supporting that too much animal protein, especially from processed meats, increases the risk of coronary heart disease.

In a separate article, Malissa Hohmann, a former patient of the Dean Ornish Program for Reversing Heart Disease at the Charleston Area Medical Center, is featured as one of three women who reversed their heart age with healthy lifestyle changes. Throughout the article, Hohmann discusses how the Ornish Program improved her heart health and lowered her diabetic risk with a plant-based diet, relaxation techniques, and group support. The article shares how, in a little over year, Hohmann lost 53 pounds, is no longer a pre-diabetic, and learned how to manage her stress levels.
