I put up a couple of posts last year about my mom’s improvement (here and here) on paleo. In short, in addition to weight loss, getting off other meds and other improvements, she got off insulin injections.
Now it’s dad’s turn. He’s racked up a lot of weight loss and works out regularly. He’s using the Chuck Norris Total Gym, a good option for him I think. I’ve tried it and you can get the resistance pretty high, and he already knows to keep it brief & intense.
Now he’s taken to doing some sprinting and even getting creative like doing squats while holding two 50 pound buckets of cement.
Here’s his report.
Been off Atenolol now for about a week. First couple days my BP was slightly elevated, 133/73. Yesterday it was at 110/62. I’m loving this. Dumping one med after another.
Then I asked for a full report.
First I went off Omeprozole with absolutely no heart burn or indigestion. Second I stopped taking Lovastatin, cholesterol went up to about 220, triglycerides went down from over 300 to about 140, HDL went from 45 to 75. Now off Atenolol (beta blocker) for hypertension, with some increase the first couple days, now about what it was before I discontinued taking them. Also I’ve been on these for over 30 years. And, with all the increased strength I am having a hell of a time with my golf swing, it’s all screwed up.
He sent me his BP log over about the last month and he seems to be averaging 110-120 / 70-80 or even lower, so perfect. He says it’s even better than when he was on the BP meds.
Isn’t this great? And isn’t it a shame at the same time? Over 30 years of care by physicians and on prescription meds and it took me — and himself, of course — with no medical training, to actually improve his health and longevity.
Dad turned 72 a few weeks ago. But you’d never know it if you met him.
Later: Being a bit behind in my reading I’d not seen these excellent Type II diabetes cures from Dr. Kurt Harris. Go have a look.
