Chocolate Chip Raisin Cookie Pancakes
Q: I just finished your ebook, the Body Fuel System, and it looks like it’s getting great reviews! How did you happen to write it, and what has been the response so far?
First let me say I am not a doctor and my sharing this video and story are not meant as medical advise. I am sharing it because I know from experience that traditional cardiologist often only treat the symptoms and view surgery and pills as the only way to go.
I have a left bundle branch block. LBB is not curable but it is treatable, usually with medication and then as it progresses/ you age a pacemaker. I have no underlining heart disease but heart simply does not function the way it should. I reluctantly tried medication only to have the side-effects be more dangerous than the LBBB. I was weaned off the medication and began to take my heart health into my own hands even further.
I made a lot of changes to my lifestyle that included leaving a stressful job, increasing my water intake, wearing a heart monitor when I work-out and becoming even more watchful of what I eat. I have been back to my cardiologist twice since conditioning the medication and both times have been given the thumbs up to keep doing what I am doing. My main goal is to avoid or at least drastically distance myself from a pacemaker. I guess you never want to think about heart surgery but at 41, I am not ready.
Again, I am not saying “ditch your doctor”, I still see mine what I am saying is make sure you do your own research. Your body has a built in healing mechanism, get to know it!
