Good news from my doctor :)

I got some really good news today from my Doctor, and I just have to share it with everyone. :)

It all started around 6 months ago. When I had my physical, my Dr told me my blood pressure had gotten too high (180 somethin’ over 90 somethin’), and he wanted to put me on meds. I know those meds have some nasty side effects, so I talked him into letting me see if I could bring it down by taking some weight off, eating better and taking some natural products. He said he’d give me one month, and if it hadn’t gone down, I’d have to take the meds. :(

When I went back a month later, I had lost 10 lbs and my blood pressure was down to 140 over 80 somethin’. He said he figured all I had to do was loose some weight, and that’s what did it. I told him it might have also been the supplements I was taking... I don’t think he really thought they had anything to do with it.

Since then, I’ve continued to take my supplements- Pro-Argi9 Plus, Mistica and Core Greens, but my diet has gone to pot, and I’ve actually put back on the 10 lbs I lost, plus a few more.

So, when I went to a different Doctor this morning to have some more extensive testing done, I was afraid my blood pressure would be high because of my weight gain, and he’d see that my arteries would be chock full of bad plaque.

Surprise!!! My blood pressure has dropped even lower, and my cardio-plumbing is as clean as a 30 year old’s!!! I’m 52, by the way, over weight, stressed, eat better than I used to, but still like butter, ice cream and chocolates... oh heck, I love food, and the total extent of my exercise is a 20 minute walk every other day or so. The Doctor said if I could try to eat a more alkaline diet, walk every day and keep taking my supplements - especially the Pro-Argi9, I could restore my cardiovascular system to as healthy as a 20 year old’s. How cool is that!

Okay, that’s all I have to say... yippie! :) :) :)
