Nobel Prize Winning Author KNOWS his stuff!
on May 17, 2014
Every now and then we come across a book that is life changing.
I bought this book for a close friend with heart disease. I decided to read it myself. (I didn't think it was necessary for high blood pressure but wanted to read it before giving it to my friend to make sure it was scientifically sound.) Once I got into this book I realized just how dangerous my blood pressure actually is/was. For over three years my doctors haven't been able to get my pressure down into the normal range. Okay, I do take some serious meds that raise blood pressure and blood sugar. I have focused on other health issues and not stressed over the blood pressure issue.
Dr. Louis Ignarro gives a list of supplements with a dosage range. He doesn't promote a clinic, classes, his own supplements or run any hidden agendas. He is a great writer and explains some complicated medical information in clear and easy to understand verbiage. And, he explains each supplement and why it is necessary.
Well, I already take lots of supplements so why not add a few more? I went to Sprouts and bought what I didn't already have. Some were not the right dosage (one amino acid in particular would have required 4 "horse pills" and I am only taking 2) but I still felt it was worth a try.
Three DAYS later, a bit groggy from sleep, as is my usual practice, I got up to weigh myself, test my blood sugar and then test my blood pressure. I retook my blood pressure. Same numbers and they were all in the normal range! I was stunned. I didn't expect anything for at least three weeks (if at all).
I have tried so many products that didn't work for me or that I realized wasn't the product but the severely restricted diet they encouraged. I do eat the foods suggested by Dr. Ignarro but for whatever reasons my body needs the supplements he suggests.
I tell everyone I know about this book and I hope you or a loved one gets excellent, life-changing results also!
