I talked to Lilias Ahmeira about Mitochondrial Therapy in May 2017 and thought the HRV sounded fascinating so booked a consultation for me and my mum in July 2017.
Mum had a serious stroke in June 2016 but thankfully no paralysis, speech impediments, etc so we thought all ok. Her HRV results were alarming with her stress levels being extremely high and power levels in her cells being extremely low. Her readings indicated that she was at risk of imminent heart failure! Lilias was so concerned that she gave her some carnosine there and then. She put her on a course of supplements and the subsequent checkup readings showed some improvement.
Lilias was so caring and thoughtful that she would call me periodically just to check up on her. After a few months when the results didn't show a marked improvement she immediately arranged for a heart value and referral to a doctor practicing Mitochondrial Therapy. He recommended different dosages of the supplements. We have just come back from a checkup with that doctor and I am pleased to say that her stress index and power levels are now within the normal ranges which is a huge relief and in just over a year!
Without Lilias intervention, she would probably not be here today so I am so grateful to her for saving Mums life!

Naturopath Doctor: Lilias Ahmeira Holistic Practitioner


Fast forward to last Thursday when I got very good news from my cardiologist. Apparently I've been able to reverse my diagnosis of heart failure! My left ventricle ejection fraction had been at 35% in Dec 2015. When a heart is functioning normally the LVEF is 55 - 70%. The most recent echo-cardiogram showed the LVEF at 56%! I am not taking any prescription drugs, but do take magnesium and vitamin D, which are both good for heart function. That's it, though. The cardiologist was stunned by the improvement made in this short time. She would still like for me to start taking a drug, but I'm going to hold off unless diet and exercise no longer work. Obviously, this needs to be a lifetime commitment to maintain these results, but I’m pretty pumped by the good news.

I cut out all animal products, started a walking regimen, and lost weight. I take magnesium oxide (500mg/daily) and vitamin D (5000 IU/Daily). My left ventricular ejection fraction was down to 35% and it’s now up to 56%. The cardiologist was recommending that I have a pacemaker and defibrillator implanted in October of last year, but I talked her into giving me 6 months. All of my doctors feel that this issue was caused mostly by the Lyme disease that I’ve had most all of my life (I’m 60). The Lyme disease didn’t get diagnosed until 2005, though, and by then it was too late to do much about it. The focus now is just on supporting my immune system as much as possible, which a plant based diet will do.


I had my 6 month checkup today with my primary care doc. She was so excited and pleased with my progress and improvement. She couldn't believe my test results and was amazed that I have reversed my heart failure diagnosis in 6 months without any prescription medication! She just kept saying "wow!" and commenting on what a difference the plant based diet (and exercise) has made. When we were saying good-bye, she said that if I ever wanted to give a talk to her patients about the changes I've made and what I've been doing to let her know!

What I eat now:

We eat as much whole food as possible, but we do occasionally eat vegan convenience foods. Our meals are simple - just raw or cooked veggies, fresh fruit, nuts (walnuts, almonds, pistachios, peanuts), flax meal, rice (brown, black, wild), quinoa, barley, beans and lentils for the most part. I use maple syrup and agave for sweeteners, and we use a lot of different vinegars, spices, and sauces like tamari, siricha, etc. for flavorings. I rarely use any oil, but if I do it's sesame oil. We get our fats from avocados, olives and nuts I get a lot of recipes from friends. If you haven't seen it yet, i would suggest the documentaries 'Forks over Knives' and 'Food Inc' for good motivation. Forks over Knives website has a lot of recipes on it, too. Hope this helps! 

My Breakfast: Barley cooked with 1/2 orange juice and 1/2 water and a cinnamon stick. I add blueberries and walnuts before eating. It’s good chilled, too!

None of my docs or cardiologists have ever recommended plant based eating.  My hubby’s cardiologist just recently started a plant based diet, and he asked my husband for pointers! He said that he’s at a loss for figuring out what to eat! That’s so sad that medical community doesn’t know more about this. We live in the Kansas City area where there are BBQ joints on every corner and there is an epidemic of obesity.



I felt like I was too young to be going down a road of unhealthy food and lifestyle choices.  My children are 5 and 2 and I want to have the energy to play with them and be a fun mom. I also want them to see that healthy choices are important and help them grow up eating healthy too.

Encouraging Words

The food you eat can either cause or prevent disease.  It’s a choice we make every day of our lives. This is my favorite breakfast dish to make when I have a little more time in the morning.  Sweet Potato hash with Basted Egg.  

Exercise Description

My job keeps me pretty sedentary which was leading to headaches, neck and back pain.  It was recommendation that I needed to incorporate a workout routine early in the morning to start my day.  I now attend a CrossFit class 4 days a week in the morning and try to take 30 min family walks after dinner if the weather permits.  I am feeling so much better throughout my day.  I have more energy and less pain.

Treatment Description

I add more organic foods into my diet where I can.  I also needed more high quality protein and vegetables in my diet while cutting down on the refined carbs and dairy.  I now have a protein shake for breakfast where I add some spinach and almond milk instead of some much high sugar fruit juices.  I also eat more nuts, avocados, fresh vegetables, eggs, fish, olive oil, fresh berries.  I am trying to reduce the amount of caffeine and replacing it with purified water which is helping me have a better night sleep.  I am now taking a few supplements that Anne suggested like a food based multi-vitamin, Omega-3 fish oil, probiotics, lecithin and red yeast rice (for my cholesterol).  I also will take magnesium if I feel tense or a headache is coming on.  

I have a sweet tooth so at first it was a real challenge to give that up.  However, instead of completely giving it up, I was instructed on how to make healthier sweet treats using ingredients that were actually good for me and delicious.  It was a win win because my children also loved the treats I am now making.  


Here is me in 2016.

What I did to get well:

A lot of people ask for some specifics about what I've done so I'll put it in here in an order of importance.

- 100% raw - high fruit, smoothies, Salads

- Daily juicing (+- 2 Litres; I never skipped one day in 16 months of juicing); whatever is in season and preferably organic (BEST: CITRUS & GRAPES)

- NO sulphur-rich foods: Garlic,onion,broccoli,cauliflower,kale,radish,turnip, etc

- Enemas (with water + 1/2 teaspoon Sea Salt)

- Herbs only if needed in the beginning for kidneys, adrenals and gut.

- Every other day I ate big salads after my stomach began to recover from Gastroparesis (Cucumber, tomatoes, avocados, peppers, lettuce, parsley, cilantro, celery, Zuccini, Alfalfa Sprouts, Coconuts; seasoned with aromatic herbs, orange juice and sea salt)

- Meditation

- Avoiding stressfull/toxic people and situations

- Listening to the body: Sometimes it asks to fast on juice for a few days, sometimes it asks for good fats, sometimes it asks to eat only hydrating fruit; On my journey my body would give me clear signs of what to do.

- Knowing and be aware that the body is in constant toxic waste dumping;

- Prayer/Faith and asking Angels in loud voice for help when needed;

- Controversial: B12 (sublingual in methyl & adenocobalamin form every other week)

The past 2 months I've regained some good weight (15kgs)... My lowest weight was 52kg; 1,80m. I am now 60kg since my stomach began to heal more. I am absorbing food and I am no longer as nauseous as before and my body is able to digest way more food as before.

I've added some Hemp&Pumpkin Seeds and some steamed Sweet Potatoes a few weeks ago because of convenience and because I want to test how I can handle some gentle cooked food. I still keep detoxing in spite of eating some cooked because I keep juicing lots of citrus during the morning and day. I drink in between meals. I don't follow a specific eating plan as long as I focus on raw eating & juicing.
