True angina can be very serious, but if it is just the pain, not an actual heart problem it may be caused by muscle tension known as Trigger Points which you can locate on your back in the iliocostalis muscles which run along each side of your spine. They can also cause pain mimicking pleurisy, appendicitis, kidney stones, tumors, rib inflamation, ligament tear or disc problems. If you put a tennis ball inside of a long sock (to hang onto it), you can massage the muscles on your back by pressing into a wall. Trigger points need direct pressure for minimum 15 seconds or longer. A good book to learn this is The Trigger Point Therapy Workbook by Clair Davies.
“I found Lisa’s website on the internet and decided to take a gamble and sign-up for a Mini Diet Makeover. The whole time my wife thought it was a bad idea and I knew she was just waiting to say “I told you so!”, but I went ahead and finalized the purchase – one of the best moves I could have made! Lisa has been a GODSEND.
I have to say that I am very impressed with Lisa. She is very knowledgeable and a true professional. Lisa sincerely thinks that she can help me and I believe that also. With my willingness to change and her expertise I think I can lose those thirty pounds and hopefully more before my next trip to the cardiologist office. I’m down 20 pounds and if I continue like this I will be close to my thirty pound goal!”
“I’m 66 years-old with many health problems, including high blood pressure, hypothyroidism, and high cholesterol. I also struggle with my weight, which has drastically increased. My cardiologist wants me to lose 30-50 pounds before I have open heart surgery in 6-8 months to fix my aortic stenosis. Before working with Lisa I didn’t know what to do. I had cut back on foods so much I was barely eating anything, but my cardiologist didn’t believe me because I wasn’t losing weight. I now know that I do have to eat a certain amount of calories to keep my metabolism in a fat burning mode (plus exercise). I had always heard this, but my light bulb didn’t come on until I signed up for the Mini Diet Makeover. When I started reading Lisa’s comments in the Mini Diet Makeover I finally “got it”. That’s why I wish I had found her website a lot earlier than I did.
My first impression is that the Mini Diet Makeover seems like a good sensible plan I can stick to. I’ll have to push myself to get everything accomplished. My life could very well depend on it. I wish I had found this plan a few years ago. I have a feeling of confidence that I didn’t have before. The Mini Diet Makeover has helped me a lot and I’m getting more encouraged since starting the Balance Program. I still have a long way to go, but I find myself paying more attention to what I really need to eat as opposed to eating anything I want. I am looking forward to losing a lot more weight over the next six months and beyond.” visit Lisa Nelson website here….
