“Though percutaneous-based intervention is often a necessity in the era of ACS therapy, the Bale/Doneen Method encourages a ‘mind over metal’ approach by focusing on both primary and secondary prevention. Their method demands a thorough investigation into nontraditional drivers of coronary disease, especially that of undiagnosed diabetes, often masked by a normal fasting blood sugar. Finally, someone acknowledges the role of hidden glucose intolerance in the demise of our population! This book is an easy read and holds the key to our future successes in the fight against coronary inflammation. It should be required reading for every first-year med student as well as seasoned practitioners who stand on the forefront of detection and prevention.” —Melissa Walton-Shirley, MD, Blogger and Journalist, Cardiovascular Disease
