Claudication/severe angina of the leg

I am a 60 year old white South African woman, am an insulin dependent, no.2 diabetic and suffer from cardiomyopathy and had a heart bypass in 2009 - which I feel never should have happened as Im still not over the op and still have no feeling over my left breast although the op was done on 21 July 2009 approximately 18 months ago!

I read with great interest what Dr Rosedale had written in a paper handed to me by a friend about his stepfather's problems. I also experience severe pain in my right leg if I stand long or walk even a short distance. The pain starts in my hip and then goes down my leg and Im unable to walk further, I have to stop for a while before I can continue walking and shopping has become a mission! As I was involved in an accident in 1976 I automatically thought it must be a slipped disc. I too went to a neurologist who had MRI scans done and other procedures too. He as much as told me that he could find nothing wrong. I was most upset because if nothing was wrong, what was causing the terrible pain? Now I read in Dr Rosedale's paper that the problem can be corrected by diet.

Please, I beg of you - let me know what diet to follow and help me live a normal life. Im diabetic and cannot even walk my dogs anymore - which would be very important exercise for my diabetes - at the moment I cannot do any exercise at all.

Thanking you and God bless
Port Elizabeth, South Africa

    Dear Janet,

    It sounds like you have been on a terrible journey with your health, we are sorry. In our eyes there is only one life style, and though you might believe we are biest, we also have proven it over and over again the last 20 years. There are also boat loads of studies that have been done to also prove the facts of the diet. These studies you wil find in science papers, as sadly most medical papers are funded by the pharmaceutical companies which will often guide people to a certain drug. The first thing you need to do it get yourself the Rosedale Diet book, you can find it on the net almost everywhere for less then $10, or you can download an e-version as well. Read it, make notes, highlight, and read it again. Also on our website, there are several papers there that you should read in the download section. This life style will save you from a lot of pain and get you in the direction you need to be. It is not a quick fix 'diet' you will change your eating habits for good, going back to how you used to eat will only get you the same results you have been getting. We are very excited for you that you have found Dr Rosedale, he has changed many peoples lives around the world and continues to do great research.

    Health and Happiness,

    The Rosedale Team.

    Thanks and hi Fiona - Gosh but that was quick! I will do as you suggest -
    even if you told me to eat stones with gravy over them, I would, just to be
    able to walk without pain again!

    ;-) thank goodness, no stones ;-) It will take you just 3 weeks to transition your body to becoming a fat burner, and in the same amount of time you will see a huge turnaround in your diabetes. You might feel a little tired for a week or so during this time just be excited that it is working, once you get through this phase you will feel better than you have in years! Keep us posted, we are excited for you.

    All the best for the new year. Would you mind if I make you conversation public? I will take out your personal information and email but so others can learn from your as well?

    Sure - make it public, you never know someone out there may have gone
    through something similar and could advise and help me. Trying to buy the
    book from Amazon but I keep getting the UK Amazon and paying in pounds is
    far more expensive than paying in dollars from a South African standpoint,
    but will keep trying.

    To you and all the friends out there in the public domain I don't know yet -
    have a super Christmas and an equally super 2011!

    Not sure if my last email went through, Dr Ron just mentioned that you will see amazing results in your pain, or lack thereof in a month if you stick to the plan and the suggests supplements. So, we look forward to seeing a photo of you smiling while out walking your dogs!

    Best of health.
