A Scientifically Proven Program to Feel Better, Live Longer, Lose Weight, and Gain Health

books-spectrum

Dr. Dean Ornish’s Program for Reversing Heart Disease was a landmark bestseller that transformed the way we think about our health and well-being. Now Dr. Ornish returns with The Spectrum, a groundbreaking audiobook that helps you determine where you are on the spectrum of health and gives you choices for gaining and sustaining optimum health for life.

Since The Spectrum is about freedom of choice, there is no diet to get on and no diet to get off. Nothing is forbidden. No guilt, no shame, no pressure. The Spectrum is based on love– joy of living, not fear of dying. Feeling better, not denying yourself pleasure.

First, determine your health and wellness goals. Do you want to lose weight? Do you have high cholesterol? Is diabetes a problem in your family? Based on your individual needs and goals, The Spectrum has examples of six individually-tailored lifestyle programs ideally suited for you: lowering cholesterol, losing weight, lowering blood pressure, preventing/reversing diabetes, preventing/reversing certain types of prostate and breast cancer, preventing/reversing heart disease.

With his personalized approach, Dr. Ornish brings you the future of medicine today–the tools to customize a way of eating, managing stress, and exercising that is based on your own desires, needs, and genetic predispositions. Your genes are not your fate. New research by Dr. Ornish and his colleagues shows that changing what you eat and how you live may actually alter, for the better, how your genes are expressed. The Spectrum not only gives you a new path to health and well-being, it may also help reverse the worldwide epidemics of diabetes, high blood pressure, obesity, elevated cholesterol levels, and other chronic conditions.

For almost three decades, Dr. Ornish has been leading a revolution in medicine, and his pioneering findings outlined in The Spectrum can make a powerful difference in your health and well-being.

Love and Survival

8 Pathways to Intimacy and Health

books-love-and-survival

We all know that intimacy improves the quality of our lives. Yet most people don’t realize how much it can increase the quality of our lives — our survival. In the New York Times, world-renowned physician Dean Ornish, M.D., writes, “I am not aware of any other factor in medicine that has a greater impact on our survival than the healing power of love and intimacy. Not diet, not smoking, not exercise, not stress, not genetics, not drugs, not surgery.” He reveals that the real epidemic in modern culture is not only physical heart disease but also what he calls spiritual heart disease: loneliness, isolation, alienation, and depression. He shows how the very defenses that we think protect us from emotional pain are often the same ones that actually heighten our pain and threaten our survival. Dr. Ornish outlines eight pathways to intimacy and healing that have made a profound difference in his life and in the life of millions of others in turning sadness into happiness, suffering into joy.
