BTD Forums  /  Testimonials  /  Bad news leads to good news

The bad news is that I took a hard fall on my left knee last night and went into the doctor's today for an x-ray. Not broken but strained or sprained.  Major ouch! :'(

The good news is that when they took my blood pressure it was 110/65.  Last time I was in for a regular check-up it was 128/80 which I was told is "good for a diabetic".  I didn't see my regular doctor today, but this doctor I did see said my blood pressure was very good, excellent in fact!

Hurray for the BTD!  I really needed this good news.  I was feeling like a failure in not seeing much weight loss since starting.  This shows me clearly there are other more important things going on.  

Next week I get my A1c diabetes blood test and cholesterol checked and am hoping for equally good news there too.

Great job!  My blood pressure has dropped since I've been on the GTD also.

Good job, Aprilshowers!  Remember to take bromelain on an empty stomach a few times x day.  Arnica ointment will also speed healing.  I like a homeopathic cream called Toprican, available in natural food stores.  Great stuff!

I bought some bromalain 350 and tumeric in the same capsule. I took it with dinner, and I got the worst stomach ache!
