Dr. Dean Ornish Sounds Out on Incompatible with Nature–A Mother’s Story in the menopausebarbee Monday Spotlight!

Dr. Dean Ornish is a clinical professor at UCSF and founder of the Preventive Medicine Research Institute. He’s a leading expert on fighting illness — particularly heart disease with dietary and lifestyle changes.

The author of several books including, Dr. Dean Ornish’s Program for Reversing Heart Disease, Eat More, Weigh Less and The Spectrum, he is a well-known advocate for using diet and lifestyle changes to treat and prevent heart disease.

Dr. Ornish is one of the leading voices in the medical community promoting a balanced, holistic approach to health, and proving that it works.

Needless to say, I was thrilled and quite honored when he made this testimonial to my book, Incompatible with Nature–A Mother’s Story:

“This captivating memoir about a mother’s fight to save her baby’s life who was born with only half of his heart in a foreign country where the mother neither knew no one, nor could speak the language, will inspire you to persevere, be determined and never give up when confronting any challenge.  This is a story you will never forget!”
