St. Vincent’s offers counter to heart disease
By David Chapman, Financial News & Daily Record
St. Vincent’ s HealthCare is offering patients a way to reverse heart disease through its “Undo it With Ornish” program.
Medicare now reimburses the hospital for the first program scientifically proven to reverse the disease.
Participants take part in a nine-week program that overhauls nutrition, fitness and stress management while educating them on the importance of their support network.
It’s based on more than three decades of research that shows coronary artery disease can be treated and reversed through lifestyle changes.
St Vincent’s will host its first Ornish session Aug. 17. Interested patients can call (877) 888-3091 or visit www.jaxhealth.com/undoit.
