How important is a heart-healthy diet? Dr. Sanjay Gupta explains

After suffering a heart attack, Sharon Kintz made a surprising treatment decision. Instead of opting for open heart surgery to fix her heart problems, she decided to take a chance and use food as medicine instead. Since refining her diet, Kintz's doctors now say that she is no longer at risk of a heart attack.

Today on American Morning, Dr. Sanjay Gupta discusses Kintz's decision, explaining her new heart-healthy diet and stressing how powerful nutrition can be to improving personal health.

Kintz's story is featured in Gupta's new documentary "The Last Heart Attack," set to air this Sunday at 8pm ET.
