LivOn Laboratories was born out of a desperate personal need. In 2002, Les Nachman was diagnosed with heart failure and was urged by his conventional cardiologists to get his affairs in order, because without a heart transplant (a remote possibility), he was going to die. With an unshakable belief that there was an answer — somewhere in the world — he began a persistent search for a way to heal his heart. The search led him to two extraordinary MD's in California. One, a world renowned virologist and epidemiologist, and the other, a maverick cardiologist who had been experimenting with alternative methods of treating sick hearts for a long time. Both doctors were convinced that his damaged heart could be repaired, or at least the progression of the disease could be slowed down or stopped.
