Cleveland Clinic’s Wellness Institute is the first and only Ohio location to offer a three-month comprehensive program – Cardiac Lifestyle Intervention Program -developed by Dr. Dean Ornish, for people with heart disease. This program has had a profound impact by teaching people with heart disease how to make critical yet achievable changes in every aspect of their lifestyles.
The Cardiac Lifestyle Intervention Program (CLIP) is designed for people who have:
- Coronary artery disease
- Stable angina (chest pain with exertion)
- Had bypass surgery or stents at any time in the past
- Had a heart attack in the previous 12 months
CLIP involves 72 hours of intensive lifestyle intervention – nutrition education, monitored fitness, stress management, and group support - aimed at heart health. This program supplements traditional conventional treatment for heart disease.
Medicare and many private insurers now offer coverage for this program. Patients’ financial responsibility will vary by insurance.
