Jeff felt like he was dying from GERD and ailments doctors couldn't cure, he lost 43 pounds and is free of health problems
At age 45 I got very sick and was bleeding internally from acid reflux (GERD). The doctors just told me to stop drinking and take Prilosec everyday which stopped my reflux. However, I did not like the side effects. I was still not feeling well, weighed 204 pounds, was always tired, and had asthma, allergies, skin rashes, high blood pressure (145/90), high white blood cell count and foggy thinking. I hit rock bottom and thought I was dying. I joined a gym and worked out three to five days a week for three years, but it did very little to improve my health, so I needed to find another answer.
I found drfuhrman.com and bought Eat For Health. In eight months I lost 42 pounds and now weigh 162 pounds. I no longer take Prilosec or use asthma inhalers, blood pressure 108/68, no allergies, no skin rashes and think clearly. I also noticed my toe nails went from looking like ruffle potato chips to nice clean and ruffle free. Now when I go to the gym the 25 to 30 year old trainers are asking me questions. I can run ten to twelve miles and lift weights for one hour, all in the same workout. At age 49, my energy level has skyrocketed and I can keep up with my twelve year old son. Thanks Dr. Fuhrman, you saved my life and I will follow the Nutritarian plan for life.
