Doctor visit

Thursday, June 13, 2013

I saw my Doctor yesterday and he said I had lost way too much weight! He said I looked gaunt and should gain 5 to 10 pounds. You can never ever please a Doctor. No matter how hard you try you will never be perfect and the Doctor will continue to suggest changes. There was some good news though with my lipid numbers. HDL was 76. LDL was 57.5. Triglycerides were 66 and the cholesterol was 147.

    I think doctors usually mean well Steven. And although he said you lost too much weight, allows you to get away with putting a little on if you do put some back on. Plus if you got sick it helps to have a little bit left to lose. But you sound like you are doing so well maintaining emoticon

    Dearest Steve,

    Regarding your doctor I would ask him for your blood work and go down each category and have him explain to you all the readings and then he will see for himself probably how little he knows what he is talking about.

    Your learning to read your blood test I heard is the key to gaining additional knowledge of how to take care of yourself. It is sad that they do not teach nutrition or alternative healing in Medical School. The Pharmaceutical Companies pay the Medical Schools to gear the future doctors toward medicating the symptoms the body gives to warn up to stop and let the body heal itself and work with it.

    Trudeau put out a wonderful set of books stating how the Pharmaceutical Lobbies are so powerful that they have gotten the support of the government to shut down may Wholistic places producing healthy products for us with no side effects. Very Sad.

    Could go on and on but you get the idea. I have sought out a Physician Assistant who is trained in Wholistic Nutrition and he not only is helping me but he is helping people treat themselves naturally while they have cancer and all the traditional community can offer is toxic kemotherapy and radiation..its a big business.

    Of course he does not talk again traditional medicine but helps us prevent and heal naturally.

    Great numbers! I wish the doctor would ask me to gain weight, I'd have no problem with that one! Have a great day, Steven!

    It is possible to be too skinny. Too rich does not exist, but too skinny is! LOL! Take care of yourself!

    I know what you mean about doctors, when you work hard to make progress and hope they stop certain meds they always say know you don't want to take any chances. However; I am very happy for you. emoticon
