Healing a Heart Attack is Hard Work!

It’s been four and a half months since I experienced a heart attack. It has been a lot of work to get to a point that I can honestly say “I’m 2/3 of my previous self – energy wise.” It has been a difficult challenge made easier by Ozone Therapy; currently I take two injections a week (Monday & Friday). These injections are made using a butterfly needle directly into a vein. I then inject on average, 50cc of Ozone gas. My blood absorbs this gas (which is concentrated molecules of oxygen) and I suffer no side effects. The results are self evident to anyone who knows me. (Then and now)

A salt and sodium free Diet is the challenge. Nothing canned, boxed, packaged or baked commercially is sodium free. Everything contains some form of preservative – mostly salt depicted as sodio down here in Panama. Even a lot of products depicting sodium free are counterfeit. One cannot trust the labeling on products.

I have been making everything from scratch; mayonnaise, mustard, syrup, tartar sauce, etc. Also bread, biscuits and muffins.

Lately, I started canning meats, chicken, hamburger, and a host of other items including the mayo and sauces; and vegetables. Glazed carrots, beets, and glazed plantain. I use a juicer to make fresh juice and can the extra so it won’t spoil. My larder is full and I’m able get out and about now and start living a fuller life.

Yesterday I received a bread machine. I had ordered it from and paid $85. Amazon charged me $17. to ship it to Miami and Airbox Express charged me $98. From Miami to David. So, for two hundred bucks I have a new tool to make my life easier. NO SALT BREAD…

Soooo, my life is complete except for the bestselling novel and the retired Playboy Bunny to push the start button on my bread maker.

Murder in Panama – Non Fiction

Folks close to me know that I’m currently writing a novel entitled Murder In Panama It’s a love story/mystery set right here in Chiriqui. Unfortunately, while I have had my head in my imagination, real murder is being committed by the folks that run Panama’s medical system by covering up the two dozen deaths (that they’re finally admitting to) caused by KPC*; add that to the couple of hundred deaths the government caused by making faulty medicine (DEG)**, and you have murder in grand proportions. How many people have to die for it to be called a massacre or genocide? Is there a number? I just read on today’s news that 30 people have been murdered (shot down***) in the past fifteen days. That’s a lot of folks dying in anyone’s neighborhood.

** (Diethylene Glycol)

The irony of all this is: the government of Panama is issuing a card to every tourist entitling them to FREE medical care while visiting Panama. Talk about Russian roulette!
