Yes, I am.

I've improved my diet the past few days, cut down on my anxiety level, and the pain is much less, almost completely gone.

I appreciate all the thoughtful advice here.

You might be interested in this http://www.hulu.com/chow-down its about diet and health generally, and gives details on how Cleveland Clinic doctors cured heart disease using only diet.
"When you meditate, don't send your mind outside. Don't fasten onto any knowledge at all. Whatever knowledge you've gained from books or teachers, don't bring it in to complicate things. Cut away all preoccupations, and then as you meditate let all your knowledge come from what's going on in the mind. When the mind is quiet, you'll know it for yourself. But you have to keep meditating a lot. When the time comes for things to develop, they'll develop on their own. Whatever you know, have it come from your own mind.

I'll just say that I really appreciate having the National Health Service.

Not just no pain. I've felt pleasure in my chest too. :)

Reclining too much -- having a really horrible posture too much, always laying down -- seemed to have been a major cause.

Doing karate kicks in the morning gets the chi flowing.

Hi Individual,

You could also try meditating to relax and lower your blood pressure even more.

Simply sit with good posture and focus on relaxing each time you breath out. Breathe naturally through your nose only. Do absolutely nothing when you breath in. Enjoy the simplicity of doing almost nothing. Don't be afraid to enjoy it. It should feel like coming home.

Then think of something which makes you feel a lot of love and compassion and focus on that for a while. There is a definite correlation between emotions and health. The emotion called love is very good for your body.

Also eating tomatoes is fantastic for your body. They do so many good things to the body that scientists can barely document them all yet.

Another thing is that the amount of financial assistance a hospital gives to poor people varies by hospital. I used to live in NH and there one hospital gave me a 100% financial assistance card because I was so poor. So I didn't have to pay for anything except the medicine I had to buy from a pharmacy when I had pneumonia.

I hope you get well soon.
