Healthy all your life?
how do you figure that ?
I didnt realize healthy people dont needed bypass surgery
and you've had 2 off them?
so maybe your idea of what healthy is, isnt realistic?
I guess it depends on how you define healthy. I've seldom ever been sick with a cold, flu or anything else in those 63 years. I had my appendix out a few years ago but that was the only other time I've been in a hospital besides the two weeks for heart surgery. I've always been active and my work involves a lot of physical labor. Three months after surgery I was back to work putting in 8 to 14 hours a day. I've had some physical injuries because of the kind of work I do but it never stopped me for long from working. In those 63 years the down time for sickness or injuries has been extremely small. I'd say I've been very healthy most of my life. I feel good now and I'm going to do what I can to stay in good health.
There is a history of heart disease in my family and if I'd known about the pauling therapy maybe I could have avoided the blockages and surgery. I'm doing what I can now to avoid having any recurrence. I had six blockages and five bypasses.
I've had my hormone levels checked a few years ago and they all fell within the normal range for my age. I did try bio identical testosterone for awhile to increase the level but stopped eventually because of the cost. I tried supplementing HGH and armour thyro for awhile too. Did a lot of reading in Dr. Frank Shallenbergers book who promotes testing hormone levels and supplementing but the cost was prohibitive and I didn't seem to be benefitting much from it.
Erectile disfunction I believe is an indicator sometimes of blocked arteries from things I've read but if you rely on that thinking you're good to go you'd be making a mistake. I haven't had in the past nor do Inow have any problem with that.
My advice to others is to follow the pauling therapy, avoid sugar, starchy foods, white flower, most grain and most of the vegetable oils. Sally Fallon has a good video on youtube called "The oiling of America" I advise people to watch and listen to it .
For people who are depressed or not happy with their lives I recommend Richard Carlsons book "You can be happy no matter what". I've bought a lot of those and given them away to people I thought needed them.
I"m not afraid of dying but I do want to enjoy the time I have here on earth. I'm christian and do my best to follow the teachings of Jesus Christ which I believe are good advice for everyone to have the best possible outcomes in their lives here on earth and beyond.
