The Ornish Lifestyle Program is a unique and innovative approach to prevent, stop and even reverse heart disease and significantly improve other chronic conditions such as diabetes and hypertension.
Our certified clinical team guides program participants through an experiential journey consisting of:
- Exercise – Participate in low-impact aerobic exercise and strength training, personalized to an individual’s ability.
- Stress Management – Learn techniques to help manage and cope with daily stress.
- Nutrition – Develop a low-fat, whole-foods, plant-based eating plan (less than 10 percent of daily calories from fat).
- Group Support – Connect with other program participants, experience emotional support throughout the program, and practice skills that decrease social isolation, depression and anxiety.
Our experienced and professional team works with primary care physicians and specialists, such as cardiologists, to identify candidates for the Ornish Lifestyle Program. Candidates are carefully screened to ensure that the program is right for them. Participants who are in the program continue to be treated by their primary care physician, who will receive regular reports on their patients.
