Hi everyone (anyone?). Thursday morning here and I’m feeling great. I have a little bit of a concern regarding my heart rate. When i test my blood glucose and my blood pressure, I also test my resting heart rate. I’ve been testing since I started this juicing and I’ve noticed my rate is always below 60. This morning it was at 49. What I’ve read is that this is great if I’m an athlete, which I’m not. I then found this article about a disease called brachycardia which is all about having a low heart rate. This made me think of my late father who had a pacemaker for the last 20 years or so of his life, due to a low heart rate. Apparently this is also hereditary.
I spoke with my cousin, a nurse, who assures me that since my bp seems normal, not to worry too much about it. Especially since I’ve had a huge change in diet. I have an appointment for next week Friday with my doctor – I guess I’ll see what he has to say. This might also mean I can lower my blood pressure medication.
