Holistic Healh # 9
July 9, 2019
Ok, something tells me that this 9th one will be the last Holistic Health Summary; the last one being Jan. 26, 2017.
Pardon the Mafia joke above; I didn't choose that, it was chosen for me by the spinning~wheel powers that be.

So what's new with me and Holistic Health?  I've been through a lot of research in the past 2 1/2 years and here's
where I am:  no new heart attacks, diabetes is under control (A1C under 7), psoriasis is still on my hands and scalp,
IBS is becoming under control.  Here's what I'm doing:

I'm fasting 16 hours in 24 which is called the 16/8 method of fasting. I stop all eating at 7PM until 11AM next day.

I'm using the fodmap diet which plainly tells one what to eat and what not to eat for IBS.  It seems to help a lot.  

I'm taking Zenwise Digestive enzmes with pre and probiotics 2Xs a day before meals and am taking metformin ER
1000 mgs after supper.  All these things are aiding my healing process. I found out on my online psoriasis group
that metformin was super bad for diarrhea and as soon as I switched to Metformin ER (slow release), I started to

However, I did have another heart attack (my 4th) two weeks after I wrote the above (on July 23rd, 2019).
It took awhile to get well, but I feel better than I have in many years.
Oct.5,2019  I just signed into this page as a whim to see what I'd written and that is pretty much where I still am!
However, I'm not on the Fodmap diet anymore, I read somewhere that a couple of months was all one should stay
on it as it doesn't have complete dietary vitamin and mineral support. So I just leave out bread, pasta, white
potatoes, and rice from my diet. I make my Keto bread every two days from:

Mix together: 1 Tblsp. olive oil, 1/3 C superfine, blanched almond flour, 1/2 heaping tsp. baking powder, 1/8 tsp
salt, and 1 large egg in a coffee mug and stir well mixing all together until smooth.I use a plastic fork.  
Bake in microwave for 90 seconds.
Cool for 2 minutes before loosening edges with a sharp knife and setting on a plate.
Cut into 4 pieces with a serrated knife and eat two pieces each day with favorite topings; I use Almond butter and
raspberry fruit spread. Wrap other two pieces and refrigerate.

I'm taking a new Statin drug; Livalo and it seems to agree with me.  I'm also taking Brilinta, but refusing to take a
beta blocker or an ACE inhibitor.  Just the names scare me (Block and Inhibit; eww!)!!
Until next time...
