With his personalized approach, Dr. Ornish brings you the future of medicine today: the tools to customize a way of eating, managing stress, and exercising that is based on your own desires, needs, and genetic predispositions. Your genes are not your fate. New research by Dr. Ornish and his colleagues shows that changing what you eat and how you live may actually alter, for the better, how your genes are expressed. The Spectrum not only gives you a new path to health and well-being, it may also help reverse the worldwide epidemics of diabetes, high blood pressure, obesity, elevated cholesterol levels, and other chronic conditions.
For almost three decades, Dr. Ornish has been leading a revolution in medicine, and his pioneering findings, outlined in The Spectrum, can make a powerful difference in your health and well-being.

This audio is good, you get a good sense of what the spectrum is about...but.. there are things that just get listed up and it´s difficult getting it all.. and with the (paper)book comes a dvd and it is (have i read) charts and things i miss. Love hearing Dr Ornish talk about this.
But I will buy the book.
This program was very interesting and the author has a very easy voice to listen to. I learned a lot about health but went ahead to purchase the book for more details about the program.
This is a good book. Inspires change in eating for a better life. However, there is a lot of information presented that will need to be referenced nearly daily for at least a month if I am to effect the changes to my diet. it is unreasonable to expect the listener to write down everything presented. The Audiobook should be accompanied by at least a chart of the "Spectrum". Even better, it should include a basic graphic of the spectrum as well as a spreadsheet of where all the foods fall.
Reversing Coronary Artery disease by Dr. Essylstein.
Please email me a graphic of where all the different foods fall in Dr. Ornish Spectrum of healthy.
The performance and the substance of this book held my interest. I listened to this book after meeting with a newly minted cardiologist who did not want to talk about diet and exercise because all that he knew about was medicine and surgery--all that was not necessary by the way. Dr. Ornish provided the guidance and affirmation that I wanted for far less than I paid that cardiologist.
Grain Brain This book belongs to the same genre that seeks to provide usable information regarding how we can change our health by changing what we eat. The changes can be profound and seriously life-changing. The performance is at a good pace but not too fast.
No, I have not listened to other Ornishs' performances.
Yes, I wanted to listen to this book in one sitting. I managed to finish it in a weekend due to other priorities.
Dr. Ornish clearly presents health enhancing knowlege with supporting proof so that medical and non medical listeners can easily understand.
Mrs. Ornish offers the best intro to calming the mind that I have found very helpful. Sue Michaelsen
I'm glad I listened to it! I wish he was my doctor! I'm so glad he still helps me and so many others! I hope more doctors and health practitioners will be trained by him. America needs the help!
