Mov­ing again (part 2)

Re­cently we dis­cussed some­one who had a painful knee mostly from the in­flam­ma­tion as­so­ci­ated with knee arthri­tis. Today we look at an­other per­son some­onewith mul­ti­ple prob­lems in­clud­ing burn­ing feet, joint pain and high blood pres­sure. Our goal was to re­duce his car­dio­vas­cu­lar risk by re­duc­ing blood pres­sure and choles­terol while sup­port­ing his ner­vous sys­tem and general cir­cu­la­tion.

We­made sig­nif­i­cant changes to his diet us­ing a daily bul­let blend to add tar­geted foods like beet­root, raw greens and berries. Given the com­plex­ity of his prob­lems we added sev­eral sup­ple­ments.

In par­tic­u­larwe tar­geted foods high in ni­trates that di­late blood ves­sels thus re­duc­ing blood pres­sure. Of these beet­root (ide­ally raw in a blender) is the most im­por­tant. Pomegranate juice, raw gar­lic and watermelon are also help­ful.

Weadded a va­ri­ety of sup­ple­ments that help re­store the nat­u­ral sup­ple­ness of blood ves­sels help­ing both blood flow and re­duc­ing blood pres­sure. These in­clude com­pounds likeAc­tiVin™ grape seed ex­tract, vi­ta­min C, bioflavonoids and oth­ers.

As a re­sult his blood pres­sure has now fallen from hy­per­ten­sive to nor­mal. HisGP is now con­sid­er­ingmed­i­ca­tion changes.

The se­vere burn­ing feet have also largely gone. His en­ergy has im­proved. Burn­ing feet is of­ten a symp­tom of poorly func­tion­ing nerves and/or poor cir­cu­la­tion. Weadded com­pounds that sup­port nerve func­tion while help­ing cir­cu­la­tion. We now need to work to help bring down his choles­terol and blood sugar. With time I have no doubt the­sewill im­prove.
