especially the ones you know and love. my dad has been suffering for many years with poor health. he is 85 years old now and very uncomfortable in his body. 30 years ago he was diagnosed with “cardiomyopathy.” basically 30% of his heart is functioning. amazing really that he is still here ! this is a testament to his strong will to live and his strong genes. my dad’s parents are from greece and they had longevity running in their family for many generations. my great grandfather lived until 110, and my grandfather reached 100. but my father’s brother died in his 60s and his sister died in her 80s. the doctors do not know the cause of my dad’s heart problems, they just treat the symptoms – with pharmaceutical drugs, i think he takes about 8 different pills. and a pace maker. my dad also has severe varicose veins – his legs are swollen and purple, and his toenails are yellow, covered in fungus. and just a few months ago he was diagnosed with diabetes. surprise, surprise. unable to stand up straight or walk very far he is tired all the time and needs to nap 2-3 times a day. every week when i see my dad i explain the simplicity of health to him. i explain why his body is falling apart – that is what acids do ! and how he can get better – alkalize ! it’s as simple as that. but not everyone is willing to change their diet and lifestyle. even when they are suffering. i will not give up however. i will try my best to help him. i have a plan and will do my best to implement. stay tuned for more updates !
