Publisher's Summary

USA Today and Publishers Weekly best-seller.

Fight cancer, diabetes, heart disease, weight gain, and even the aging process itself with one simple, scientifically proven plan to reverse disease - as well as prevent and reduce symptoms - from the world-renowned pioneer of lifestyle medicine.

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.

Medicare and many insurance companies now cover Dr. Ornish’s lifestyle medicine program for reversing chronic disease because it consistently achieves bigger changes in lifestyle, better clinical outcomes, larger cost savings, and greater adherence than have ever been reported - based on 40 years of research published in the leading peer-reviewed medical and scientific journals.

Now, in this landmark audiobook, he and Anne Ornish present a simple yet powerful new unifying theory explaining why these same lifestyle changes can reverse so many different chronic diseases and how quickly these benefits occur. They describe what it is, why it works, and how you can do it:

  • Eat well: a whole foods, plant-based diet naturally low in fat and sugar and high in flavor. The “Ornish diet” has been rated “#1 for Heart Health” by U.S. News & World Report every year from 2011 to 2017. 
  • 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

With 70 recipes, easy-to-follow meal plans, tips for stocking your kitchen and eating out, recommended exercises, stress-reduction advice, and inspiring patient stories of life-transforming benefits - for example, several people improved so much after only nine weeks that they were able to avoid a heart transplant - Undo It! empowers listeners with new hope and new choices.

“The Ornishes’ work is elegant and simple and deserving of a Nobel Prize, since it can change the world!” (Richard Carmona, MD, MPH, FACS, 17th Surgeon General of the United States)

“If you want to see what medicine will be like ten years from now, read this book today.” (Rita F. Redberg, MD, editor in chief, JAMA Internal Medicine)

“This is one of the most important books on health ever written.” (John Mackey, CEO, Whole Foods Market)

Finally clear facts against all the Keto lies

Great that D. Ornish wrote this book and debunks all the fake Keto and Paleo science with their lies.
For example: claims that the population tried low-fat, but it didn't work, are clearly debunked now when according to consumption statistics of the USDA in every decade since the 1950-60 the population consumed more and more fat.

The book also updates the reader about new studies and science that has been released in the last few years.
Great listen, thanks Dr. Ornish.

Not much meat!

I love Dean Ornish and what he teaches BUT this was not what I was looking for. I was looking for a general review of all his work and a system to follow. this aint it.

Disappointed

given the stature of dr. ornish in his previous writings I found this book under par. plus the narration especially those sections by mrs. ornish was very annoying she sounds like she's trying to be a sex kitten it might be her real voice but it just was too ridiculous to have any faith in what she was saying.

Undo It....yes!

Having followed Dr. Ornish’s work for years and prescribed his teachings to my patients, it is exciting to have THE resource to now share with them. People need not only science and statistics, but also concrete advice on how to put knowledge into action. This book offers exactly that. It really is the culmination of years and years of Dean and Anne Ornish’s careers that they so eloquently and passionately spell out for us. I’m grateful and thrilled that they created this work.

Beautiful.

This really is a beautiful piece of work with the cherry on the top being that Dean Ornish himself narrates thé book.

It combines so so much of his work condensed into a sensible and easy to listen to book, yet it feels that it contains so much more content.

This is the very best calibre of lifestyle medicine with a balance of statistics (with referenced studies) and provides both the science and the implementation.

It’s superb, inspiring and intellectual work from one of the best examples of humanity.

Thank you Dr Ornish, and your wife for taking the time to create this logical, emotional and compassionate book.

Adam, Intelligent Eating.

Hugely disappointing

I couldn't finish it , only got to chapter 6. I found absolutely nothing new in this book , it's the same stock in trade diet touted by every hippy run health food shop ever and some of the advice is downright stupid ( such as make a tit of yourself in restaurants and on being told that mothers who feel stressed are stressed and mothers who don't, aren't - well no shit sherlock..... so the advice there was ? Dont feel stressed ! What ??? ) Put all that alongside the most dreary voices I've ever heard , I couldn't take any more.
