A professional musician, Mike B., from Tucson, won the Blendtec blender at my lecture in his city recently. He told me this. I love when someone’s story includes NUMBERS! I thought you’d find it interesting if you’re thinking about joining the next LIVE GSG 26-day Detox:
I did the Detox and lost 13 pounds. I consider myself to have a healthy lifestyle. I exercise regularly, go to the gym, eat mostly vegetarian foods and play tennis regularly. I also regularly get a checkup with the usual blood work. My blood work has always been in the “normal” range, but more recently, the cholesterol numbers have shifted as I approached age 50.
The lab report that I had done through my GP in Dec of 2013 came back with the following numbers:
Total Cholesterol: 232
Non HDL 169
My doctor wanted to put me on a statin, so I decided to get rid of him and look for alternative approach. I found out about your Detox through my friend Dave, who did it with me.
After the program, I had my blood work done again by a naturopath who did a more detailed VAP panel. Shortly after I finished, these were the results:
Total Cholesterol: 156
Non HDL 112
Since moving to Tucson in 2001, I have always had allergies that seem to result in asthma or congested lungs. I have used an inhaler almost every day, depending on the season and especially at night. Now, after incorporating more green smoothies and generally greener eating, with less grain and more healthy fats, I almost never need to use the inhaler. I’d like to get it to NEVER, but its reduced to ALMOST NEVER, now.”
Mike, thanks for sharing your inspiring story!
