25: Dr. Dwight Lundell Reveals The Secret Truth About Heart Disease

Dr. Dwight Lundell of TruthAboutHeartDisease.org joins Robert Su, MD as the featured guest on today’s episode of The Carbohydrates Can Kill Podcast.

Dr. Lundell is a retired cardiac surgeon. Over the course of a career that involved performing more than 5,000 cases of cardiac surgeries, he became increasingly dissatisfied with the fact that cardiac surgeries could never stop the increasing epidemic of new cardiac disease and recurrences.

After doing his own research and literature research, he came to the realization that cardiac surgery is just a patch-up job. To help prevent cardiac disease, he understood that the dietary approach is most important and effective. In 2003, he left his successful practice of over 25 years and opened a new clinic, teaching his patients how they can prevent heart disease with a diet which is , interestingly, rich in fat and low in carbohydrate. Based on the findings of his research, he disputes the role of cholesterol in the development of coronary artery disease.

He has published two books, “The Cholesterol Lie” and “The Cure for Heart Disease.” In this interview, I am going to ask Dr. Lundell to share with us his thought on why and how we can prevent and even cure heart disease without surgery. This is a very important while provocative topic. You owe it to yourself to listen to this episode now!

    Great podcast! What if a person has heart disease but also has compromised kidneys? How should they eat?

      First of all, restricting carbohydrates is the must. While it is the general thought that patients with a compromised kidney function should consume proteins sparingly. However, I remember reviewing an article that the patients with compromised kidney function did well or better with carbohydrate-restricted diet, as long as the patients dod not consume high-protein diet. It is important to understand carbohydrate-restricted diet does not equal high protein diet. Here is a case report: “A low-carbohydrate diet may prevent end-stage renal failure in type 2 diabetes. A case report” at http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1523335/

      The same good proteins & fats low carb way, but it’s even more important for people with impaired renal function to restrict carbs as “Carbohydrates, not protein is “hard on the kidneys. Ask any diabetic specialist what the #1 cause of kidney failure is and
      they will be forced to answer diabetes (high blood sugar levels).” http://www.brianpeskin.com/reports/Ketosis.pdf

    The kidney issue is addressed in a paper by Facchini and Saylor, ” A low iron, high polyphenol diet….” If you google it, the paper will pop up.
