  • If you suffer from heart disease, you are all too familiar with the standard treatment plan of pills, doctor’s appointments, and tests. What happens inside medical offices and hospitals is only a tiny part of what it really takes to heal heart disease. Most conventional doctors barely mention lifestyle. And yet, what you eat and how much you move are central to attaining optimal health. Learn what heart disease is, how a plant-based diet can prevent and reverse heart disease, and some tips on how to transition to a plant-based diet.
    Heather Joy Shenkman, MD, FACC, is an interventional cardiologist in practice in the Los Angeles area. While she performs complex angioplasties to open up clogged coronary arteries, she prefers to help her patients reduce their risk of heart disease through a healthy lifestyle, including a plant-based diet and regular exercise, in addition to medication when appropriate. She is an avid athlete, having completed over a hundred events of various distances, from sprint triathlons to Ironman distance triathlons, marathons and ultramarathons, and several hundred-mile century cycling events.
    Dr. Shenkman is a strong believer in a plant-based diet for heart health, as numerous studies have demonstrated prevention and even reversal of coronary artery disease. She has written the just-published: The Vegan Heart Doctor’s Guide to Reversing Heart Disease, Losing Weight, and Reclaiming Your Life. Her website is www.drheathershenkman.com and she can be followed on Twitter at @veganheartdoc.

      I heard that in south korea, deep fried chicken is now the most popular food rather than bean sauce noodles. Most countries warn about using hijiki seaweed which has plenty of heavy metals.

      I've been to Korea many times... there's plenty of ocean pollution there due to high concentration of industry on such a small spot, at least around Busan, Ulsan, Seoul too I guess though I haven't been a lot in Seoul. My impression was that pork is much more popular there (judging by the share of restaurants and what is sold in the shops), it is cheap (relatively to beef or seafood) and is pretty much everywhere. In the local markets though there's lots of all sorts of strange seafood, including some worms three fingers thick :)
      Korea is westernizing very quickly though, diets change.

      Eating plenty of seaweed (together with soy and other vegetables) seems to be safe since japanese and koreans eat plenty of seaweed every day.

      I have talked to a korean american and seaweed is pretty much eaten every day and seaweed is usually part of the flavor base of most dishes.

      Agree. Well, I still use laminaria (a seaweed) a lot for I can gather it right in the ocean and there's not much industry around where I live. Otherwise pity though, I used to love things like calmari and fish... and caviar... but eat very little of it lately for the reasons you mentioned.

      The main change is environmental pollution and radiation so better to keep animal products and wild seafood to a minimum. Diet guides of most countries still recommend some seafood per week like maybe around 2x a week for wild anchovies, wild sardines for epa/dha omega 3. Probably no longer safe to eat wild seafood every day like the good old days. Nowadays, plenty of pollution like microplastics everywhere in water and food.

    Bulanglang is vegetable soup recipe from the philippines. To veganize Bulanglang, have to replace the fish with beans, peas or lentils and seaweed, replace the stinky fermented shrimp paste with soy sauce, tamari and or miso. For epa/dha omega 3, vegans can take vegan epa/dha omega 3 supplement.

    What filipinos usually eat are breakfast (fried white rice, fried preserved meat, fried egg), lunch (white rice, deep fried chicken), deep fried snacks, dinner (white rice, meat dish with plenty of oil), so plenty of filipinos die early from the very unhealthy diet. The old traditional filipino diet was healthy with mostly unrefined staple foods of yam (dioscorea), taro, elephant foot yam, arrowroot, chestnut, water chestnut, job's tears (adlay), millet, brown rice, plantains, banana stem starch, mung beans, chickpea (garbanzo), mango, jackfruit, durian, figs, pandanus fruits, honey (refined by bees), coconuts, coconut upper stem starch (ubod), metroxylon sagu palm stem starch (sago), corypha palm stem starch (landang), rattan stem starch, breadfruit, pili nuts, plus vegetables, seaweeds, seafood.

    2015 diet guide for americans has vegetarian options and vegan options. Protein group can be beans, peas, lentils. Dairy group can be vegan fake milks fortified with calcium. The diet guide seems to forget to remind vegans to take b12 supplement maybe bec they do not expect people to go 100% vegan altho based on the diet guide, it is possible to go 100% vegan if you follow the diet guide.

    Better to avoid refined substances like oil, vegan fake milk, vegan fake cheese, sweeteners, juice, refined flour, protein powder, tofu, yuba, seitan, salt, etc. Supplements are also refined substances that should be kept to a minimum altho vegans do need b12 supplement to avoid going crazy and to avoid death. Some vegans who do not get enough sunshine might need vitamin d supplement. There are brands of mushrooms with vitamin d. Iodine from seaweeds like wakame, nori, dulse. Some vegans might need epa/dha omega 3 supplement.

    Medicare already covers the pritikin program and dr dean ornish program altho these are not 100% vegan but are nearly vegan and both need b12 supplement just to be sure. Dr Dean Ornish diet allows egg whites, 0 fat dairy, fish oil epa/dha supplement or vegan epa/dha supplement. Dr Dean Ornish diet requires b12 supplement. Pritikin program allows more animal products so b12 supplement is maybe only optional but probably better to get b12 just to be sure.

    Unrefined Plant based diet of Bill Clinton was actually pescetarian or pescatarian bec he ate some seafood every now and then for epa/dha omega 3 fats.

    Most doctors are just self taught nutritionists so probably better to invite real nutritionists like brenda davis, vesanto melina, jeff novick, jack norris, virginia messina, reed mangels, etc.

    Every Doctor she mentions has books out that will be twice as good as her's.

      Maybe it's all perspective. Some authors may just provide more in-depth content than others or cover more "of this" and less "of that", et al. Different topic distribution, coverage, focus points of interest, et al.

      She is only rehashing and selling another book on the backs of the other famous writers. Try reading the 3 volume set from Rohan Millson, "Why Animals aren't Food" best investment you will ever make.

      What a nasty thing to write. Why? Have you even read her book?

    More people writing about whole food, if you already have Dr. Greger's books and Joel Fuhrman no need to spend another 19 bucks. But I would recommend Rohan Millson's 3 volume set of: "Why Animals Aren't Food." But if you own no books at all then do what you like.

      I have heard it pronounced both ways, which leaves me confused. I have heard doctors pronounce it differently.
