When he was a baby, my son mimicked me snoring. He grew up seeing me prick my finger regularly to check my blood sugar levels. He saw me using the blood pressure monitor and expressing concerns about the out-of-range readings. He observed as I swallowed a cocktail of prescription pills. He knew that all was not well with Dad. Over the years, he gladly watched me lose weight, and he knew when I stopped snoring, he overheard me sharing with others that I was returning to good health.
This background explains why when he was about nine years old, he requested that as a mark of gratitude to God, I should share with others how I beat obesity, sleep apnea, high cholesterol, arrhythmia, diabetes and high blood pressure and stayed out of medications for most of the conditions I suffered. He wants me to tell you that you too can do it! Yes, you too can beat the cluster of chronic metabolic diseases and overcome their symptoms.
