Just like an Olympic athlete

Happy Feet
I love coming across stuff like this.

If you have diabetes, or know someone who does, you may have heard the term PAD - Peripheral Artery Disease. This blocks the blood supply to major arteries; often affecting the legs and feet. This can cause anything from ulcers to gangrene (leading to amputation). Nasty stuff.

A new procedure may help change all that.

Developed at Sydney's Royal North Shore Hospital, the process essentially works by isolating the effected limb and rapidly pumping blood to it. This tricks the body into growing new blood vessels.

According to Dr Rodney Lane - the man behind the new procedure :


The arteries are performing at the level of an Olympic athlete, running at pace, when the patient is lying in bed.


Beautiful.

Rob's diet is based on a "System Specific Organic Whole Food" line of foods along with various fat burning, muscle building tips from Tom Venuto. Tom's Philosophy is very similar to Rob's and he's happy to recommend them
