About One Percent
At age 50 after being in perfect health my entire life, I was diagnosed with heart failure (cardiomyopathy dilated idiopathic). Although my doctors could not tell me the cause of my illness, I knew one existed and began a quest for optimal health.
My first goal was to heal my heart, but my heart was failing so quickly that to keep me alive, they implanted an LVAD (left ventricular assist device). Once implanted, I asked about the odds of my heart healing and was told that at that time, the odds were only one percent. Taking a three-pronged approach to my problem, I found answers, my heart healed and the LVAD was removed.
I have written about my journey and path to wellness in my book ï¿½One Percent: My Journey Overcoming Heart Diseaseï¿½ available on this website and on Amazon.com.
I have remained on my path seeking optimal health, especially through the foods I eat, and continue to modify my diet not only to support my heart but to avoid other diseases such as cancer, diabetes, arthritis and a host of other chronic and fatal illnesses.
This site is my attempt to share my discoveries and path with others that we all may be part of that one percent of the healthiest Americans, living in a state of chronic good health. Now, my newest book, Just Do This One Thing, breaks this path down into thirty easy steps; the more steps you do, the healthier you’ll become. Start now and join me!
