Following The Livingood Daily Book
Hi everyone - I live in Savannah, Ga and haven't posted my story lately, so here it is... prior to joining the DLG lifestyle I was mostly sedentary with a number of health problems and was on too many Rxs - thanks to our American sick care system of multiple specialists who each order prescriptions, and no physician who integrates specialty care into one overall view of my care. Here's what happened when I got serious doing my 1% following the Living Good Book. High cholesterol: Triglycerides were cut almost by half, HDL rising, LDL decreasing. Alc was pre-diabetic; now in normal range. On several major pain meds for back & fibromyalgia pain; now only on Omegas + Turmeric! I've stopped 10 Rxs & their side effects (I had acid reflux, IBS, gastroparesis, constipation & hemorrhoids, all kinds of ENT drugs & sprays); now I rarely have GI or ENT problems. I have longer & better sleep. I was basically in bed for several years; now I'm up & about more often. I stopped statins for the 1st time in years! With 30% BMI, I was in the obese category; now my BMI is 20%! I've lost 62 lbs and waist went from 36.5 to 31! I've gone down several sizes & am altering clothes! Why DLG? I was diagnosed with breast cancer and had a mastectomy in early 2021. A friend told me about Dr Livingood & I ordered his book. I had been in healthcare for over 20 yrs so his approach made sense to me. My cancer Dx was the impetus to cut carbs & sugar. (to help fight off cancer cells) My physicians are amazed & asking how I was able to drop Rs & maybe I don't need them anymore! I love my Dr appts now! Labs are good & trending better. I have my life back! The supplements I use are collagen/multi, greens plus powder, electrolytes/energize, omegas/turmeric & vitamin D complex. Probably will add magnesium soon. My goals in future are to do my 1% movement (which I couldn't do until the past few crews) & strengthen my heart slowly but consistently so I have fewer sinus tachycardia episodes. (I used to have to go to the ER for adenosine injections to stop/start heart rhythms. I did finally have an ablation procedure years ago) I'm so grateful to my friend for telling me about DLG book, to Dr & Nurse Livingood & staff, and to all of the Crew members from April 2022 until now who have taught me & encouraged me along this journey to real health! I'm 67 yrs old & doing all I can to live a healthy retirement - it's never too late to get started! You can do it!
