Gene McDougall has been a rebel all his life, but it wasn't until clogged arteries almost killed him that his feisty personality finally paid off.
Rather than meekly accept the role of victim, he decided to wage an all-out battle to reverse the clogging of his arteries by researching the disease and using himself as a human guinea pig. He made changes in his diet: vitamin supplements, prescription medications, and even his basic lifestyle; all the while keeping a chronological record of those changes for comparison against his blood test and stress test data over the same period. He hoped this would enable him to uncover some cause-and-effect relationships, and he succeeded beyond his wildest expectations.
Not only did he reverse the diminishing blood flow to his heart, but now he had a complete record of everything he had done, when he had done it, and at what point the blood tests and stress tests began to show that his efforts were succeeding. Realizing how important this information could be to others, he decided to make his findings available to the public in book form, resulting in the publication of Unclog Your Arteries, How I Beat Atherosclerosis.
This book is a concise, easy-to-follow survival guide describing the author’s own journey back to good health, explaining in everyday, easy to understand language, what you need to know about vitamins and minerals, prescription medications, doctors, stress, exercise, nutrition, weight control, blood tests - even how to stay on top of what could otherwise be a bewildering blizzard of insurance claim paperwork.
If you have had a heart attack or bypass surgery - or even if you have not, but are overweight, have high blood pressure, high blood sugar, diabetes, high cholesterol, heart disease, or a family history of any of these things, read this book and then keep it on your bookshelf for reference. It just might save your life.
