I m wondering if Dr Rosdale s diet & supplementation may make a difference/ help me?
I have chronic kidney disease stage 3
I am unable to take statin drugs nor BP meds because the side effects are much worse than the actual problem, they would literally put me in bed with very strong palpitations, dizziness, migraine, chest pain, extreme fatigue, arm, shoulders gets numb...Just awful.
All my issues started with perimenopause at age 40, now I m 45

I m naturally a bit underweight by regular standards, (Weight 105- Height 156)
I eat well not much meat, only lean meat, a lot of veggies, nuts, fruits, not much sweets....
I use flax seed oil instead of butter....yet my BP is still erratic, some days 185 , others 145 my triglycerides & cholesterol are very high.

Blood Pressure Medication used in the past

Amlodipine Besylate

Side effects experienced during the time taking medication:

general ill feeling
feeling like I am about to pass out on & off
pounding heartbeats or fluttering in my chest
difficulty breathing
pain spreading to the arm or shoulder
cold sweat
headache ( migraine ) & nausea combined
dizziness, sleepiness
extreme fatigue
stomach pain

Most of this symptoms go away or lessen when NOT on medication

Currently taking supplements list

Hibiscus tea
Hawthorn extract
Hibiscus extract
Calcium D Glucarate
Vit B + Folate
Multi v
Vit c
Borage + Flax oil
L Arguinine
D Ribose

I would like to know if in your opinion you think the diet may be of great help to me?
Thank you very much for taking your time reading this.

    Dr. Ron's diet will help. I suggest that you get a copy of his book, immerse yourself in the pages and begin his diet.

    His diet will help anyone, young or older, under-weight or over-weight.

    • You ask: I would like to know if in your opinion you think the diet may be of great help to me?

    • Reply: yes it will - but you must follow Dr. Ron's recommendations..

    Wishing you the best...
