Moving again (Part 2)
Happy New Year! I trust that 2020 will be a great year full of the good things life has to offer.
Last week we discussed someone who had a painful knee mostly from the inflammation associated with knee arthritis. She has gone from limited mobility living on painkillers to almost no pain and significantly improved mobility.
Today we look at another person someone with multiple problems including burning feet, joint pain and high blood pressure. He was on a long list of medications. Our goal was to reduce his cardiovascular risk by reducing blood pressure and cholesterol while supporting his nervous system and general circulation.
We made significant changes to his diet using a daily bullet blend to add targeted foods like beetroot, raw greens and berries. Given the complexity of his problems we added several supplements to help leg circulation, reduce cholesterol and reduce blood pressure.
In particular we targeted foods high in nitrates that dilate blood vessels thus reducing blood pressure. Of these beetroot (ideally raw in a blender) is the most important. Pomegranate juice, raw garlic and watermelon are also helpful. Feel free to email me for a copy of my hypertension bullet recipe.
We added Cell-X that help restore the natural suppleness of blood vessels helping both blood flow and reducing blood pressure. These include compounds like ActiVin™ grape seed extract, vitamin C, bioflavonoids and others.
As a result his blood pressure has now fallen from hypertensive to normal. His GP is now considering medication changes.
The severe burning feet have largely gone. His energy has improved and he now has a new zest for life. Burning feet is often a symptom of poorly functioning nerves and/or poor circulation. We added MTQ10 that has compounds that support nerve function while helping circulation.
These include things like Alpha Lipoic Acid, CoQ10 and B vitamins. Click here to read a study how Alpha Lipoic Acid can support nerve function..I recommend adding Alpha Lipoic acid for most health problems affecting nerves from unpleasant shingles through to more serious neuro-degenerative problems.Be aware that many supplements use cheap and largely ineffective S form rather than the bio-identical highly effective R form.For you science buffs ALA has a chiral centre at its C6 carbon thus allowing for R (nature identical) and S enantiomers (mirror images).
We now need to work to help bring down his cholesterol and blood sugar. With time I have no doubt these will improve. I have put him on my Sytrinol® product to help balance cholesterol and we are trying to reduce simple carbohydrates that destroy blood sugar balance and contribute to weight gain, high cholesterol and nerve problems.
The answer is not diet or supplements. The answer is firstly to stimulate dormant healing processes overwhelmed by degenerative changes to joints. Secondly we need to restore cell chemistry back to normal patterns and then your body does the rest. I have written an extensive Anti-Inflammatory Nutrition Guide.
