Dr. Heather Shenkman is an author of her book The Vegan Heart Doctor’s Guide to reversing heart disease, losing weight, and reclaiming your life. Finally, the Whole-Hearted Approach to Treating Cardiac Disease That You ve Been Waiting For If you suffer from heart disease, you are all too familiar with the standard treatment plan of pills, doctor s appointments, and tests. But interventional cardiologist Heather Shenkman, MD, says what happens inside medical offices and hospitals is only a tiny part of what it really takes to heal heart disease. Most conventional doctors barely mention lifestyle. And yet, what you eat and how much you move are central to attaining optimal health.
Dr. Shenkman says a plant-based diet, plenty of exercise, and a whole-hearted approach to living make up the best prescription of all. And in The Vegan Heart Doctor s Guide to Reversing Heart Disease, Losing Weight, and Reclaiming Your Life, she lays out a simple, manageable protocol for transitioning to a vegan diet and safely leaving your former, sedentary self in the dust.
Yet Dr. Shenkman doesn t just talk the talk; she walks the walk. Interspersed throughout the book s advice, she tells her own remarkable story of how as an adult she became an impressive endurance athlete fueled entirely by a plant-based diet.
In an age when healthy living is no longer optional, Dr. Shenkman s message could not be more timely or inspiring. When you read this book, you ll realize heart disease does not mean your life is over. In fact, you can let your diagnosis motivate you to make the needed changes that free you up to finally fully live.
Dr Shenkman is a interventional cardiologist in practice in Tarzana, California. Originally from the Detroit area, she attended medical school at Albany Medical College and completed her internal medicine residency training at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit, Michigan.
She completed her cardiology fellowship training at the University of Rochester in Rochester, New York, and her interventional cardiology fellowship training at Tufts Medical Center in Boston, Massachusetts.
While she performs complex angioplasties to open up clogged coronary arteries, she prefers to help her patients reduce their risk of heart disease through not only medication, but also a healthy lifestyle, including a plant-based diet and regular exercise.
Dr. Shenkman has followed a plant-based diet since 2005. She is an avid athlete, having completed over 100 events of various distances, from sprint triathlons to Ironman distance triathlons, marathons and ultramarathons, and several 100-mile century cycling events.
Dr. Shenkman is a strong believer in a plant-based diet for heart health, as numerous studies have demonstrated its benefits in the prevention and even reversal of coronary artery disease. A plant-based diet has fueled her athletic success, and she encourages her patients toward this diet for their own health as well.
Currently she serves on the Board of Directors for the California chapter of the American College of Cardiology, representing cardiologists in the San Fernando Valley.
