OUR MISSION

Our mission is clear and simple: to enable everyone and anyone with heart disease to reverse and, yes, even cure it. We accomplish this through increasing awareness of cutting edge health and wellness information. Curing Heart Disease, LLC is an evidence-based organization utilizing diet, exercise, medicines, and other resources to fight this deadly disease.

DR. PETER MEGDAL

I have been an active cyclist since the thrill of my first race in my late teens. My early commitment to competitive cycling has afforded me advantages in life. First, I have always tried to figure out how to go faster on the bike. Since weight is a key factor to speed, this focus led to an interest in diet. Second, the exercise helped inoculate me from diabetes that has plagued my entire family. Alas, I was not able to avoid heart disease.

That is what has brought me to this mission.

CURING HEART DISEASE WITH PLANT BASED DIET
AND LIPID MEDICATIONS

Study of elite 55 year old competitive cyclist who reversed his heart disease.

1 year of treatment resulted in:

  • Maximum oxygen uptake (V02 Max) increased from 56 to 65 mL/kg/min
  • Treatment resulted in going from local/ state ranked cyclist to world class including a National record holder and a 4th place at the World Championships

Study of elite 55 year old competitive cyclist who reversed his heart disease.

  • Used Lipid medications, diet, exercise and meditation

  • Cholesterol dropped from 195 to 76 mg/dL
  • Reduced ischemia to heart (increased blood flow)
