Health and Wellness 7: Chow Down – the Documentary with Heart

Bypass Surgery Does Not Cure Heart Disease – it’s only a Band-Aide.

Of the 1000s upon 1000s of bypass surgeries performed every year none have ever cured heart disease. Why? Because it doesn’t identify, address and treat the underlying root causes of heart disease. Bypass surgery is only a temporary patch job, a band-aide, a quick fix to keep things working for a little longer.

Are there alternative options to bypass surgery that actually treat the underlying root cause of heart disease, reversing and curing it? Yes, there are (and they don’t involve surgery)!

If you have heart disease, know someone with heart disease or want to reduce the risk of getting heart disease – this is a Must See movie.

Chow Down (the movie below) follows one man’s (actually two) struggle to reverse his severe heart disease … with diet.

Charles, 45, devoted husband and father of two, is shocked to learn not only that he has cardiovascular disease but that the blockages in his heart are so severe that his surgeon refuses to operate. But Charles is a fighter and he’ll do whatever it takes to be around to see his kids grow up.

Just like Charles, millions of Americans are sick; and, they’re tired of the pills and operations.

What if you could avoid it all, but nobody’s willing to tell you how?

Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn of the Cleveland Clinic (the #1 heart clinic in America) is trampling the status quo to get the word out. He’s the director of one of the longest-running studies in the peer-reviewed scientific literature showing that a plant-based diet can reverse even late stage heart disease.

Be sure to pay close attention to the results of Dr. Esselstyn’s study – the results are Shocking – and, will make you ask this question: “Why aren’t our doctors telling us about this?!”

If heart disease, the number one killer in America, can be stopped and often reversed with diet, why aren’t people like Charles routinely given this information before being sent to the operating room?

With lighthearted animation and piercing expert interviews, CHOW DOWN exposes the three factors that fatally impact our country’s health:

– the medical community’s allegiance to the status quo

– the government’s allegiance to the food industry

– and Americans’ allegiance to cheap, convenient food

Charles refuses to accept his doctor’s grim prognosis. With Dr. Esselstyn’s help, he resolves to not only treat his disease but to reverse it. We all know it’s easy to make resolutions, but sticking to them is the hard part. In Charles’ case, it could be the difference between life and death.

Root for Charles as he tries not only to save his life but also to end the cycle of cardiovascular disease in his family.
