Pre & Post Surgery Inspiration
wholefed posted:
I had quadruple bypass surgery one year ago at the age of 40.

I have found my voice and want to share my experiences with others who have been diagnosed with heart disease and other chronic diseases. My goal is to provide inspiration and a plan to follow to assist you.

Why am I writing this blog?

I want to share a little secret. It is very simple and the skeptics among us will doubt its effectiveness based on its simplicity.

The Secret:

Eat Plants. Lots of them.
My personal issue began with a very gradual increase in body weight from 200 to a high of 235 pds. My blood pressure was consistently increasing as well. I did not suffer a heart attack but had all the classic signs of angina. I noticed most of the symptoms during my frequent exercise. I could not run more than a quarter of a mile without walking. I was not out of breath, I just could not go further. Another very telling sign was the increase in my neck size of a three to four year period. I frequently would get flushing in my face, particularly when I was stressed.
