This book condenses decades of medical research on heart disease into an easy-to-understand explanation: injury-producing blood flow is what damages the arteries leading to heart disease and strokes. Dr. Kensey's well-researched solution is to thin the blood so that it doesn't injure the arteries in the first place. Based on these results, Dr. Kensey has created a simple seven-step lifestyle plan that involves regular blood donation, extra fluids, low-dose aspirin, and sensible lifestyle strategies.

Publisher's Weekly Review

Despite its unfortunate title, The Blood Thinner Cure: A Seven-Step Lifestyle Plan for Stopping Heart Disease and Stroke by cardiologist Kenneth R. Kensey with Carol A. Turkington offers a long-term antidote to the unhealthy, fast-food diet that contributes to heart disease, the nation's biggest killer. Compassionately and carefully explained, Kensey's program, which is based on the premise that cardiovascular disease need not be inevitable, entails giving blood regularly, taking an aspirin every day, not smoking, drinking lots of water, maintaining a healthy diet, exercising regularly and de-stressing.

Table of Contents

For years, we've been hearing about a variety of factors related to heart disease: having high cholesterol, being overweight, eating saturated fat, having diabetes, and even the latest, having high homocysteine levels. But none of these has been proven to directly cause the hardening and clogging of the arteries. In this revolutionary book, cardiologist Kenneth R. Kensey, M.D., takes a fresh look at the real cause of artery hardening: damage to the artery lining caused by overly forceful blood flow. The well-researched solution? Thinning and "softening" the blood so that it flows smoothly throughout the body. Dr. Kensey provides an easy-to-follow, seven-step lifestyle plan for creating "thinner" blood and preventing artery damage from occurring or worsening. The plan is simple, involving regular blood donation, extra fluids, a sensible diet, and exercise. This groundbreaking plan can help save lives of both those who have already experienced heart disease and want to improve their health and those who hope to prevent heart disease.
