Q: Can hypertensive heart disease be cured or reversed? A: Over two decades ago, the idea that a low-fat, strict vegetarian diet may reverse heart disease was put forward by Dr. Dean Ornish. Such diets reject most animal-based foods, including meat, eggs and milk, and restrict fat intake. Some studies find that this eating pattern can reduce the amount of cholesterol plaque in your arteries, main cause of heart disease. Ornish's plan also involves multiple exercises like walking, yoga, meditation, and stress reduction.   Keywords: can hypertensive heart disease be reversed; cure hypertensive heart disease; reverse hypertensive heart disease     Related FAQ:
