Ciaran was a typical male in is 40’s that ignored the signs from his body. Eventually he went for a full series of medical examinations, including blood tests. The results of these blood tests were alarming and turned out to be life changing. His GP informed him that his strong family history, coupled with his lifestyle and dietary habits left him at extremely high risk of heart attack or stroke.
His Medical History
His blood readings included: Triglycerides 11.18 (Normal Range is 0.5 to 2.0) and his Total Cholesterol was 6.86 (Normal Range is 3.0 to 5.2). His liver scan confirmed non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). He realised that he had to make drastic changes to his lifestyle, particularly his diet. If this did not work, he faced being on medication for the rest of his life to control his cholesterol.
Introduction to the Benefits of Juicing
Shortly afterwards, his good friend John Price introduced Ciaran to the world of juicing and sprouting which he immediately embraced. A man who had worked for most of his life in a family wholesale and retail meat business cut out over 90% of his meat consumption, and now delights in growing and eating his own organic sprouts.
In less than a year, his blood results are staggering. His Triglyceride level dropped to 3.04 and his Total Cholesterol has decreased to 3.9. The physical changes are almost as significant. Ciaran now has a healthy complexion and has decreased his waist measurement from 42 inches to 36 inches after losing almost 3 stone in weight juicing and sprouting every day with a balanced diet.
