1- I have eliminated all carbohydrates, hydrogenated oils and processed food
2- I eat as much as possible of proteins with at least 3 servings a week of fatty fish such a mackerel, sardines, wild salmon. I avoid tuna, but I always have some cans of tuna in brine if I run short of supply. Fatty fish provides omega 3.
3- I also make omelets for breakfast
4- I eat a mix of vegetables either from frozen that I steam or from plain V8 that I warm up as a soup. Those provide me with vitamins and minerals
5- I eat also strawberries from frozen that I let thaw and add the juice of a lemon
6- I also take pineapple chunks from frozen when I have joints pain (pineapple is as powerful as NSAIDs but without the bad side-effects)
7- I add to my food tabasco, coriander and spirulina
8- And one of my favorite is guacamole to which I add garlic, onions, coriander and spirulina well mixed
9- Obviously, alcohol must be limited because alcohol = sugar
Every morning after my two black coffees
1- CoQ10 Ubiquinol 100 mg
2- Vitamin D3 5000 IU
3- Vitamin B6 50 mg
4- All swallowed with a glass of water containing 1 g of Magnesium Chloride
5- Then one glass of Beet Juice (beetroot juice), sips that I leave as long as possible in my mouth before swallowing
6- Every day a bath of Epsom salts and when seating at my computer a foot bath with Epsom salts
Only one: Clopidogrel for my very bad circulation to keep my arteries opened (or what is left of them)
Twice a year I take some acetaminophen (paracetamol) for uncontrolled headaches and very occasionally some anti-inflammatories for back pain
I refuse to take any medications to decrease my pains
I refuse to see a doctor and to have any control whatsoever but that’s me !
I walk in my house as often as I can. I have measured my walking and found it to be 1 mile a day. Never seat more than an hour.
When the weather is good I walk on a path with a foldable tripod to seat when necessary (quite often due to the pain) and if not, I walk in a heated pool and at the gym on an elliptical cycle. I try to add about 2 miles a day.
I never go down the stairs to protect my knees.
I swim at least 3 times a week.
At the gym, in between seating after walking, I train my core muscles with weights.
