This book revolves around his scientific study, which has yielded stunning results for several years. Those who were a part of this research study decreased or gave up their medication, felt happier, their chest pain vanished, and experienced weight loss while eating more.

These factors are key to healing, inspiring the readers to open their heart to a better, longer, and happier life.
Ornish tells the readers that if they consume high-quality food, packed with nutrients, follow a vegan diet, and exercise regularly, they would be able to reverse heart disease and unclog their arteries. He also emphasizes on stress management techniques, meditation and yoga for the same reason.
