BTD Forums  /  The Encyclopedia/ D'Adamo Library  /  What about stroke, artherosclerosis etc.
Posted by: Robert, Friday, October 27, 2006, 8:06am

I Would like any info on stroke, artherosclerosis, plaque build-up, abdominal aortic anuerysmn etc. I just received a mailer from a company that is trying to scare me into using their tests called Life Line Screening. The little ads worked. I am 65 years old and wonder what I should look for since I can't afford their "tests" and really am suspect of this type of marketing anyway.  I have been having some strange sensations of "feeling" my pulse in various areas where I have felt no pulse in the past. For instance my vision and my finger tips, the pulse is when resting and even my Doctor doesn't give me an answer to this just says " well your pulse is everywhere now isn't it?" Even an eye surgeon could not give me an answer to the vision pulse thing. I am diabetic, have had cataract surgery and they say my eyes check out very healthy otherwise.

I didn't just jump onto the threads with this, I have used the "search" feature on this site but can't find the info I need, or think I need, maybe because I am not putting the right info into the little window or some other obvious factor that I am blind to because my arteries are clogged clear up to my frontal lobe. ha ha.

Thanks for anything you may know about this and how this relates to BTD etc. etc.

whats about B-complex and please look for alphalipoic acid; I don't think that you are clogged that much;) and please don't get feary because of this test, there are many,many invalid tests for sale ;D ;) :D :K)
I think that you should eat BTD diabeticbook like and then yup the supps, is in you case very important and I think a higher intake of Vit. C. does the things in all senses because C is also bloodthinnging:D
and if you'd like add some bromelain with meals or just between :D...c'est tout dearle :K)

What about mercury dental amalgams?  Not sure about the pulse symptom, but tremors in fingers and eyelids is on the list.  Plus...many, many others that you may not be aware of if you have the metal fillings.  Just a thought. ;)

Stress can cause one to focus on "details" like pulses--that may always come and go, but suddenly we notice them.  As one tries to learn and feel more and more of the body's responses, sometimes we "overshoot."  My understanding is that the tests can give you radiation you do not need, and not tell you much that is clinically useful.   Just a couple of thoughts.

I certainly go along with the idea of following the BTD diabetes book.  Following the BTD is a strong factor in your favor as an A.  I love the B-complex suggestion by Tomatilla.  Hawthorne is terrific for your heart and so is COQ-10.  Do you already take the fundamental supplements from NAP for an A?

Is your cholesterol in normal range?  If not, you can get help from the naturopath to bring that down, if it is too high.  

These are all basic things to do and they help you more than you think.  Knowing you are following the diabetes book and taking these supplements should give you peace of mind.  I know you follow other regimens for a quiet mind, also, and that's wonderful.  An excellent homeopathic practitioner is what I count on besides BTD and you might want to consider that aspect, also.

My husband is an A and I have seen tremendous result with his following the BTD for 8 years, now.  He takes the above supplements, takes the guggulipid, pantethine and red rice yeast prescribed by a naturopath to keep his cholesterol low.

Keeping tuned to the forum is a great help, too.  Always nice to hear from you, Robert.  Don't forget to honor us with some more poetry.

Thanks for all the responses!

Isa, I am just doing multi vits. no special B compl. I'll check on Alphalipoic acid.  I did get the Diabetic BTD book after Lola suggested that I should.  I try to stick with it but I am not a good cook so I end up eating tofu with miso and steamed green beans or brocolli which is all great but day after day is hard. When I eat grains the sugar goes up too much.  Many thanks to you (Isa) my friend Tomatilla I !.

Thanks debra + these are pulses not tremors and the pulse in the eye is something I experience as a little waver in my vision that is conjuctive with my pulse, not as a particular feeling there. I do have merc fillings but don't have the $ to replace them.

Elizabeth, thanks for your comments/ info. I don't have stress that I know about and since I have done Buddhist sitting meditation for over 30 years I am well connected to/aware of the nuances in my physical. I 'd say these are new in the last 8 months. Very interesting about the radiation, they don't mention that and they charge about $130 as I recall.

New Hampshire Girl  thank you, I will try the Hawthorne and COQ-10. if the price is right  We are working on an outrageous credit card debt so can't really spend much even when it is for the heath reasons. Actually eating BTD for Diane and me is kind of expensive at least from our relative viewpoint. The nearest Whole foods is almost 80 miles away so we do what we can with Apple Valley here somewhat near Bellevue. I take oral meds from the Veterans Admin for the diabetes. My blood sugar is still occasionally high but the A 1-C (3 months average) is much lower than before BTD.

I have checked the protocalls for my situation using Dr D's program, when I get a few $ together I will get those supplements. If I took them all I have to rob a bank  or even get a job (yikes) to pay for them.

I'll post some poetry soon New Hampshire Girl and thanks for your appreciation.

Good luck, Bob, with your regimen as you strive to afford it.  I'm looking forward to more poetry.  I don't write it, myself, just appreciate it.   :)

Many thanks New Hampshire Girl and thanks everytime again to Tomatilla I. ! (Isa, baby)

I moved this thread from the International Editions forum because it is an english language thread. The International Editions forum is for other language threads.

Robert your pulsing could be from nothing more than something you are eating. I kinda get the same thing if i eat corn.  I used to have it periodically prior BTD and it reappeared when I indulged in the corn. If I'm remembering right, we are dif BTs, so you'd have to investigate that for your BT.  ;)   Heck, even if we were the same BT, and it was from a food, it could still be a dif food. best way to check this is to keep a journal of all you eat and when you get the symptom. if it's food related, you'll soon 'sniff' it out. :-) Best to you!! :-)

thanks italybound, that is interesting, I'll try that out. Maybe it's coffee. I know I can have some coffee but I probably drink too much of it.  Corn is something I rarely eat. Best to you too.

I think coffee, even for your type, is supposed to be limited to one or 2 cups a day and that may change in the Health Series books.  Haven't checked that. And then, also to consider, is what you put in said coffee.  :B ;D

Röööööbbbiiii, have a look into the threat of Elizabeth;cholesterol up to the roof; our dear John made there

thanks italybound, no I don't add to my coffee anymore, just black, so that change was due to following BTD. For thirty years I used cream, a really hard avoid to give up. I do drink green tea quite a bit too so that is another consideration for me..

My Dearest Tomatilla, what in the world is a: " threat of Elizabeth;cholesterol "  hmmmmm???
