Dean Ornish, MD, has directed revolutionary research proving, for the first time, that lifestyle changes can often reverse (undo) the progression of many of the most common--and costly--chronic diseases and even begin reversing aging at a cellular level.

Thanks to the great success of Dr. Ornish's Lifestyle Medicine programs, Medicare and many insurance companies now cover the program for reversing chronic disease. The program has consistently achieved greater changes in lifestyle, better clinical outcomes, larger cost savings, and greater adherence than has ever been reported.

Dr. Ornish joins Dr. Friedman to discuss his research, success stories, and the approach to lifestyle medicine, which includes:

  • Eat well: a whole foods, plant-based diet naturally low in fat and sugar and high in flavor
  • Move more: moderate exercise such as walking
  • Stress less: including meditation and gentle yoga practices
  • Love more: how love and intimacy transform loneliness into healing
