“When I was 48 years old, I was in the beginning of a massive heart attack. I didn’t have heart disease in my family; I wasn’t a diabetic. I wasn’t someone with extreme hypertension or elevated cholesterol. But I ended up on the operating room table with a ‘widow-maker’ lesion. I would’ve been dead if I hadn’t gone to the hospital.” – Chauncey Crandall MD.
This harrowing tale can happen to anyone, but for Chauncey Crandall, M.D., the Director of Preventive Medicine at the Palm Beach Cardiovascular Clinic, it was an especially shocking development.
For Dr. Crandall, who has performed over 40,000 heart procedures in his illustrious career, it was also a wake-up call. He related this story to a stunned Pat Robertson on the CBN television show “The 700 Club” and it’s also the foundation for Crandall’s revelatory new book, The Simple Heart Cure, released October 21, which details the good doctor’s 90-day program to stop and reverse heart disease.
Divided into three parts – “Learn It,” “Treat It” and “Fix It” – Dr. Crandall explains how “changing habits is undoubtedly the most important part of any recovery process,” and promotes a back-to-basics lifestyle adjustment that is easily understood, enabling people to regain and maintain their health.
The Simple Heart Cure uncovers proven strategies to banish bad cholesterol, steps to head off high blood pressure, how to unclog your arteries without painful surgery and the must-have heart tests for everyone over 50. And because Dr. Crandall knows all too well the confusion and uncertainty that a command like “eat healthier” can bring about, he even puts together a grocery shopping list for the reader and diagrams a 14-day menu plan. Finally! A heart expert who’s willing to just come out and tell you what to eat!
In the signature chapter titled “7 Super Foods for Your Heart,” Dr. Crandall details how he lowered his own cholesterol by 72 points by incorporating heart-healthy foods into his diet.
At the top of the list are blueberries, “some of the most healthful things you can eat,” followed by cholesterol-lowering oatmeal and almonds, vitamin-rich salmon, olive oil (a “good fat”), legumes for fiber and soymilk to reduce diabetes risk. Visit the doctor at www.chaunceycrandall.com.
