June 8 2015 - Reboot Day 23, Juice Only Day 16 - 11:14 pm
The day started with my blood pressure and pulse at awake 115/73 and 67 bps. I have never measured my heart beat at below 80 in the last 5 years. This is quite a significant change. Furthermore, my blood pressure appears to be in good control without taking any Bissoporol or Ramipril in the last 24 hours. I am going to see what happens tomorrow morning.
I had a troubling exchange with Judy Wilson, Nurse Practitioner at Healthy Heart Clinic at St. Paul's Hospital, this afternoon. I complained about the side effects since last Wednesday of excessive dizziness and even fainting spells. She seemed to dismiss that as minor inconvenience over what the beta-blocker purpose of "protecting" my heart. I don't get it. I will consult with Dr. Hii and make an appointment to see a functional medicine MD in the next couple of days.
My blood sugar is getting to be in very good ranges and the spikings throughout the day appear to be minimal in comparison to the last couple of months. I think the exercise and nutrition have contributed significantly to this cause. I definitely need to work on a sustainable path in the next month and a half. I need to learn to cook vegan in a joyful way so that it will last. Plant Strong and Thrive!
