Ornish Reversal Program at SMH

Coconut Telegraph

Sarasota Memorial Health Care System is now offering the Ornish Reversal Program, a proven lifestyle approach to reverse heart disease without medications or surgery. Participants enroll in a 9-week program featuring 18 four-hour sessions with a group of 12-15 people. The program is based on four key elements: a low-fat, plant-based diet; 30 minutes of daily exercise; stress management; and social support. It has been so effective in undoing years of damage to the heart that Medicare and some major insurances now cover the Ornish program under a new benefit category, intensive cardiac rehabilitation. Some conditions that may qualify you for the Ornish program through your insurance include: heart disease, heart or valve surgery, angioplasty and stent placement. The next group begins its first session March 15. For information or to enroll, call (941) 917-6139.
