Oprah Winfrey hosted Dr. Dean Ornish, and his wife, Anne Ornish, on the TV show “Super Soul Sunday” to discuss UnDo It!, their bestselling book. Dr. Ornish, is a longtime student of Swami Satchidananda, and collaborated with Sri Swamiji in designing the groundbreaking research on reversing heart disease. UnDo It! describes their landmark research showing that simple lifestyle changes (also outlined in Dr. Ornish’s other books: Eat Well, Move More, Stress Less, and Love More) can reverse the progression of the most common, costly, and disabling chronic diseases and even begin reversing aging at a cellular level. US News Just Ranked Ornish Diet #1 for Heart Health in 2022, the 11th year ranked #1 since 2011.
The title for the book was inspired by Swami Satchidananda teachings that all we need to do to do to tap into well-being and inner peace is to “undo” all the habits we’ve acquired that have led to our dis-ease. When often asked if Yoga was a religion or what his religion was, Swami Satchidananda would explain he was an “undo” and his religion was “Undoism.” Watch the “Super Soul Sunday” program here.
