Suppliments: Building Blocks for Healing and Health

My overall goal is to live as pain free as possible as I grow older, stay as active as I can over the years and enjoy this physical body as long as I have it.  I do not believe taking prescription medications are healthy long term solutions.  Any pain or discomfort, body chemistry imbalances are more a result of life style choices (food, weight, activity).  I realize there are health problems that require medical intervention.  However, a combination of good solid nutrition and medical treatment deals with the immediate solution and the underlying causes.  If medication is needed, in combination of good nutrition and supplements we can minimize the damage of prescription medication. I spend about $1.45 per day on supplements.

High Cholesterol

September 2010

  • Weight: 185
  • Cholesterol: 285
  • HDL and LDL totally wrong

March 2011

  • Weight 165
  • Cholesterol 210
  • HDL and LDL still off

February 2012

  • Weight 160
  • Cholesterol 180
  • HDL : 43  LDL: 129 Triglicerides: 64

June 2012

  • Weight 150
  • Cholesterol: TBD
  • Blood Chemistry:  TBD

I managed this with a combination of vitamin supplements and following a vegan diet.  I also started the juicing program in March of 2012.  This helped break through the 160-165 pound weight barrier I was hovering at.  I  have now settled in at 150 pounds.

Before the diet and supplement changes I worked my down to 148# and my cholesterol was still about 215.  the reading for HDL and LDL were way off balance.  There is a genetic predisposition to high cholesterol in my family and I was able to overcome it with diet and supplements.

Arthritis

In January of 2010 I was experiencing pain in my hip with all the walking I was doing.  It never really went away no matter what I did to help it.  I began the anti-inflammatory supplements and now, two years later I do not have any pain in my hip.

Supplements: It looks like a lot of pills…and I am afraid it is.
