In brief: Yes

The ornish program of life style changes is certainly a good idea for someone who already had coronary artery blockage.
It involves lifestyle changes such as diet, exercise, stopping smoking, and stress management. It is not a replacement for treating your disease with medications where indicated.

In brief: Yes

On his website he claims that it reduces bad cholesterol by 40% and lower risk of heart disease.
Since high cholesterol is one of the major causes of coronary blockages, reducing it can help with heart disease.
