After reading Joanne’s GravOxy Fitness posts for a year on Facebook about her dedication to helping people get healthier and feeling better, I ordered my Bellicon and received it January 30th 2015.In 1996 I was diagnosed with Atrial Fibrillation. I got progressive worse throughout the years and in 2011 a Pacemaker/Defibulator was implanted. I had to take 4 heart medications that severely limited any kind of physical activity along with 2 painful knees that are inoperable due to my heart condition. My days were spend sitting or laying around and I could not walk more then 10 minutes without severe pain.
On February 2nd 2015 I went to my doctor for a check up. What a shock!!! On top of my heart problems I was diagnosed with Diabetes with an A1C of 8.4, high triglycerides and cholesterol levels along with liver problems. She immediately put me on Metformin to lower my glucose levels, but after a week, had to stop because of heart problems. I started rebounding the next day for 2 minutes and slowly increasing as the weeks went on.
My next check up with the doctor was May 18th 2015. Another shock!!! A1C was down to 6.4, triglycerides and cholesterol levels normal and liver problems better. Doctor as stunned and another check up August 20th. Same results. She said whatever you are doing don’t stop. I am now off of 1 major heart medication, lost 20 pounds and can walk with only slight pain. I rebound 10 to 15 minutes a day and will continue to do so every day for the rest of my life.
My 84 year old cousin in Germany was so impressed, she ordered a Bellicon, uses it every day and is able to walk up and down hills in Riedenburg effortlessly. THANK YOU Joanne for helping 2 old gals have a life again.
