Hi everyone. Many of you have been asking how my cardio rehab is going.  I just had a follow-up appointment with my cardio-nurse practitioner, and she informed me my next visit does not have to be until October, and that my heart function or pumping efficiency number is back up in the "normal" range, Deo gratias!  The only "bad" news is that I will have to remain on some of this medication I'm currently on for an indefinite period, and my blood pressure meds have been increased.  So thank you to all of you for your good thoughts and prayers...

    May I presume to suggest a good quality magnesium supplement (magnesium chloride I believe is readily absorbable), for lowering bp, and earing beetroots. Also Inclined Bed Therapy (raising the head of the bed by 6 inches) for circulation and breathing – amazing and simple!)

      That’s ‘eating’ beetroots, not wearing them in ears!

      I agree; however, magnesium chloride is not the best source except topically as ‘magnesium oil’ which is 20% MgCl. It is well absorbed but messy. Better to use oral Mg citrate, malate or threonate (all available at health food stores or on line). Only danger is if one has limited kidney function in which cae it should not be used since it might build up to toxic levels. Otherwise take enough to SLIGHTLY loosen the stool. Another good idea is old fashioned Epsom Salts, 2 cups in the bathtub, dissolve in hot water then add cold to reduce to warm comfortable temp, then soak in it 15-20 min 3-4 x per week about one hour before bedtime. It gets absorbed thru the skin. It also is a good idea to check RBC (not serum) Mg levels to assess body stores of the mineral. Magnesium is involved in dozens of chemical pathways in the body, including those important for cardiovascular health. Beet powder contains nitric oxide promoters which relax blood vessels and help with BP.

        OOPS! That’s MgCl2 to be chemically correct 😉 !

    Dr Farrell! I’m very glad to hear your news! Keep up the good work on your health. I’m praying for you! Very best, Rosenshad

    Glad you’re getting better.
    I guess you can withstand this “shocking coincidence”….

    Excellent! Keep up the good humor and work Dr. Farrell! I’m sure Shiloh has been a wonderful contributor to your good health. Our dog friends have a grand way of keeping us moving while inspiring us to turtle forth through the day joyfully.

  11. Robert Barricklow on July 7, 2022 at 12:25 am

    Great News!
    Both you & Shiloh are doing much better!

  12. Billy Bob on July 6, 2022 at 8:20 pm

    Good to see the report. The human body is an incredible creation. It heals itself if given good fresh nutrition, exercise and a calm stressless lifestyle, which is a challenge in our day and age.
    Once Shiloh is up and fit, maybe you learn to take daily walks. Good for you both. (Just keep a few plastic grocery bags in your pocket just in case.)

    Wonderful news doc. Deo Gratias!

  14. Jackie Yates on July 6, 2022 at 4:37 pm

    That is good to hear.

    There are some comorbidities that exacerbate hypertension that may not appear related. One of those comorbidities is obstructive sleep apnea. Based, on your sinus issues that you have reported in your vidchats, I suspect that obstructive sleep apnea may be an issue for you. If you are evaluated and treated for OSA, then your cardiac issues may remain easy to control.

    But, the concern with OSA treatment is that CPAP or continuous positive airway pressure (which is the most common treatment) is “smart”. So, basically “they” would know when you are using CPAP and how well it is working for you.

    I hope that you remain in good health.

      Hi Doc,
      OSA is a real problem, especially in commercial drivers. A driver I trained 10 years ago got married and honeymooned in Bahamas. Came back to work to suspended license. His Doc pulled it when the wireless cpap he left at home didn’t report for a week.

      Biggest problem I had keeping drivers was weight, breathing and blood pressure. All were best addressed by diet and breath work.
      Lots of good authors on each.
      Patrick McKeown was one of Dr Buteyko’s students. Amazingly helpful.
      James Nestor’s latest book and youtube interviews are also helpful.

      First caution playing with diet comes to mind verified with the few drivers I could get to hack their BP for their annual physicals: When dropping all grains, be careful of how fast and how much BP will drop. Sodium and Phosphorus drive up blood pressure. Magnesium, Calcium and Potassium drive it down. Grains are a huge source of phosphorus. My first month grain free, my BP dropped from 100/50 to 70/30. Gave me early morning light headedness. Problematic. Learned from William Davis that I needed to up my sodium intake. Himalayan salt on my steaks. About 1/2 teaspoon a day keeps me around 110/50.

      Helpful paleo / primal / keto diet authors: Lauren Cordain, Robb Wolf, Nina Teicholz, Mark Sisson, Dom D’Agostino, Tom Seyfried, William Davis, Nora Gedgaudas,

      Take care and study much as you do on all other topics.
      Thank you and keep on.

    WONDERFUL to hear Dr. Farrell! Bless you. Saw your recent interview with DJ. I would love to hear you are working on a new book. I know it’s a BIG TASK! Maybe just a shorter one? 🙃
