Riassunto: Donald Gazzaniga, diagnosed with congestive heart failure, was headed for a heart transplant - the only effective medical treatment. Urged by his doctor to keep his sodium intake "under 1,500-2000 mg. a day," Don headed for the kitchen and went to work. Aware that cutting out table salt is the barest beginning of a true low-sodium diet, Don devised recipes for delicious low-sodium dishes that added up to less than 500 mg. daily, 70% lower than those in other low-sodium cookbooks. The result? Don's name has been removed from the transplant list and his doctors believe that his diet played a significant role.
The No-Salt, Lowest-Sodium Cookbook contains:
* Hundreds of good tasting, easy-to-make recipes
* An introduction by Dr. Sandra Barbour of the Kaiser Permanente Foundation
* Advice on finding low-sodium prepared foods, eating in restaurants, etc.
* Accurate sodium content of every ingredient and of the total servings
* A twenty-eight-day low-sodium menu planner by Dr. Jeannie Gazzaniga, Ph.D., R.D.

It is Thanksgiving week, 2011. I have lived fifteen years longer than I was first diagnosed to live in January of 1997. In that time I have met thirteen new grandchildren and learned to do things I always wanted to do, like oil painting, playing a saxophone, cruising around in my own bass boat and generally enjoying life. I have reversed my heart disease. From a close-encounter with a transplant to my activities today is rather amazing. I credit four things for this.
1. Consuming no salt. Absolutely no salt. Sodium levels at or below 500 mg per day. 2. Heart medications including Carvidilol, Cozaar and digitalis. 3. Exercise daily. 4. Do something new every day or at least try to learn something new. In other words, keep the brain active as well as the body.
The recipes I have created over the past fifteen years have helped others as well. Please read the testimonials at megaheart.com for confirmation. They are each unsolicited and each is there with the permission of those who sent them to me at their own volition.
This cookbook and the other books in this series will help you recover. And you will note many testimonials come from those with Meniere's Syndrome, hypertension, diabetes and other maladies. When I first wrote this book I thought only of heart disease. I have learned since that a multitude of diseases are helped with a no-salt, low-sodium lifestyle.
I encourage you to at least give it a try. Check this or one of the other books out of your library or download an E-book version of Living Well Without Salt or go ahead and order a copy from your favorite online book dealer or a bookstore. The Living Well book offers many pointers on how to reverse your heart disease or stop the dizziness created by Meniere's. Each of the books in this series is chock full of great information as well as superb no-salt recipes. And by the way, we don't use any ingredients with salt in them, either.
