I had a friend recently that was having issues with his heart. It seems that he has had a life-long problem with heart arrhythmias. He recently had an episode with his heart and had a device implanted (pace maker). I had heard that he was about to have a cardioversion, where the heart is electrically ‘shocked’ back into rhythm. He is in his late seventies or about eighty years old.
I asked him about the minerals from his diet and of course he had not given it any consideration.
“It is just one of those things with getting older,” he said. This is of course is the attitude of people about any disease when it comes to nutrition because of the structure of our government and the medical profession. If it treats a disease, by definition as declared by Congress, it is then a drug and can only be dispensed by a medical professional.
I suggested to him that perhaps he was magnesium and potassium deficient and suggested that he may take some supplements. He decided to take a magnesium glycinate supplement and drink low sodium V-8 juice to improve his available potassium. He started the Sunday before his cardioversion that was on Wednesday.
I happened to be at the hospital when he checked in and met him at the check-in desk. He pulled me aside and described the most amazing thing that had happened to him. It seems that about four months back he had developed a blind spot in his vision. He assumed that it was just from old age and perhaps the meds he was taking for his heart. He got up to read the paper on Monday morning and to his surprise there was no blind spot. We can speculate as to why, but the mineral pathways are both electrical and biological enzymatic.
There was just one bump during the cardioversion necessary to get his heart back into rhythm. I can just imagine that during the thirty years that he has suffered if all that time it was a mineral deficiency issue. Our medical profession needs to ‘wake up’ to the requirements of nutrition and stop acting just in the cause of profit. My friend, well, he is one happy guy – Pandemic Survivor
