Coconut Oil for High Cholesterol
Home Remedy Ingredients
- Virgin Coconut Oil (VCO)
Start with 1/4 teaspoon of coconut oil added to your diet a day and slowly increase to as much as a daily tablespoon. It may seem counterintuitive to add an oil to your diet to lower cholesterol, but many have been able to lower their LDLs with just the addition of Cold Processed Coconut Oil to their diet.
[YEA] 12/01/2006: Elizabeth from Buffalo, NY: "my cholesterol was 224 before using extra virgin organic coconut oil. doc took me off lipitor because of side effects. i started coconut oil 1 tbls or more/ 4 or 5 days a week. IN THREE MONTHS MY CHOLESTEROL WAS 176 ....! i'd changed nothing else about my diet, but do not eat egg yolks--hadn't for a long time."
[YEA] 12/04/2007: T.Srikantharajah from London , UK: "Curry leaf (Murraya Koenigi Spreng) protects the liver and the liver cells and is even used as medicinal cure of certain liver diseases, the control of high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes and high cholesterol especially. It is an excellent culinary herb for fat reduction. Curry leaf not only makes a dish palatable but also adds flavour and nourishment too. Almost every part of the plant,its leaves, the root, bark, petals and fruits are all made use of either in cooking or medicinal purposes. Spicy curry leaves porridge is useful in the control of health problems. Even if stung by a snake, curry leaves porridge is commonly given to remove poison. It was considered a multi-purpose, all time herb."
[YEA] 08/10/2008: Susan from Ripley, WV, WV: "My cholesterol stayed around 345 for years. I heard about dark chocolate. I eat one little square of Dark Chocolate daily and I brought my cholesterol down to 245 in 6 weeks. Haven't had it checked lately but it will probably be down another hundred by the time I get back to the doctor. Eating that small amount of chocolate, I didn't gain one ounce so hope you enjoy."
[YEA] 06/19/2011: Linda from Alpharetta, Ga: "I had extremely high Cholesterol all my life. My parents and grandparents had high cholesterol all their lifes. I even had extremely high cholesterol during the 3 years I lived completely vegan, no animal products at all. I blamed it on genetics and stress. For 2 years now my cholesterol is completely normal, since I changed my diet after I read about the South beach diet. For me even whole grain bread makes my Cholesterol go up again, which is for me the evidence that starch is the culprit for high cholesterol.
I eat now lots of mixed salads with lots of lettuce, and veggies, I eat 3 times a day protein in form of eggs, goat milk, goat/sheep cheese and meat (chicken, beef, lamb, fish, but no pork). I eat pretty much all veggies raw or steamed with fresh herbs and flax seed oil or coconut oil or as a soup. I eat not more than max 2 cups of fruit per day, because I think the sugar in fruit caused my high cholesterol during my vegan time and caused problems with blood sugar and pancreas.
I completely avoid everything with starches, esp. Bread, noodles, rice, deserts and everything with sugar. I do eat once in a while steamed potatoes or fresh corn on the cobb or a bean dish.
I use Stevia to sweeten my milk shakes which I make with a few strawberries, blueberries and goat milk since I get sinusitis and gain weight from cow milk.
I do make my salad dressings with ACV and flax seed oil (refrigerated) and Herbamare, a salt herb mix. I do not restrict my fat intake, but I don't use butter, or whipped cream, but quite a bit flax seed oil and coconut oil. I also take baking soda 2x a day in water.
Now my blood pressure, my cholesterol and my weight are perfect."Replies

[YEA] 02/01/2010: Robert Henry from Ten Mile, Tn Usa: "Hi Ya'll doin, Thought I had the bull by the tail on a down hill drag, but it appears that is not the case. As a few of you know, I have been a reader and a contributor for a couple of years. I was late at this health stuff but hit it hard for the last five years. At 73, I and having and anti aging doctor and a chelation doctor, I decided to go get a jowl lift soes I could match up with my good lookin spouse of 50 years. At my age the anastegeologist was nervous and and wanted to do another EKG. It was not good, and they shut down the procedure and shipped me off to a cardiologist. This guy is gov approved.
He said he had not been sued in 32 years because he only does what the AMA approves. It pissed him off that I had
been referred by a high dollar cosmetic surgeon who was going to make me pretty. It pissed him off that I had been doing Chelation so I did not have to mess with his type. He gave me a lecture on why we should just age normally and not let an anti aging Doctor modify our hormones and blood work soes we don't get all these old age diseases. He then proceeded to give me a satin drug for Cholesterol without blood work nor asking me what my tests were. How 'bout that for science ? My Cholesterol is 156 with a 57 HDL and a 99 LDL. Tests that most 73 year olds would pray for.
I went back to my Chelation Doctor, a Thoracic Surgeon, who got tired of cutting off folks arms and legs in the early 90's and found chelation. I am back into EDTA Chelation. In my group last Thursday, I asked who they were using as a cardiologist? None... done done that and the procedures only lasted a few years. This is by-pass and stints, etc.
They rely on chelation to keep them perkin. Anyways, I's searching Earth Clinic for any help. Know to do Magnesium, ACV, Cayenne and breathing stuff. Just know that most doctors are only interested in their next vacation trip to Europe."

Exercise, Diet, Coconut Oil and Omega 3s
[YEA] 10/12/2007: John from Virginia Beach, Va: "i just had my blood work done and i was a little worried that my cholesterol would be elevated but the results were good. I have been dieting and exercising and taking coconut oil and omega 3 for over a month now. My cholesterol was 247 and now it's 137."
[YEA] 08/19/2011: Shannon Parker from San Antonio, Tx: "fish oil if taken 1 gram twice daily can and will reduce your cholesterol. My cholesterol was 188 and now it's 122. I did not change my diet. All I did was invest in a good quality fish oil supplement and voila! "
[YEA] 10/18/2005: Bridgette : "Freshly ground Flax Seed. Buy the Flax Seeds whole and organic. Grind them just before using... a few tablespoons per day on your food, salads, etc or just grind and eat them alone. Never substitute with pre-ground or the oil... they are not as effective at lowering cholesterol. Extra vitamin C helps too."Replies
05/16/2009: ND from Mumbai, India replies: "can the flax seed be chewed instead of grinding it into a powder?"
[YEA] 01/13/2009: Ida from Swainsboro, Georgia, Usa: "I'm writing about the apple cider and garlic healing. I am a person that believes a lot in natural healing this year 2009 I'm getting into it more. I learned that natural healing can help you without a lot of side affects because it's all natural. No drugs. I'm now 56 years old I've used natural remedies all down through the years
Now here is one of my natural garlic and bread remedies that works for me to get your High cholesterol and blood pressure
4-cloves of garlic
2-slices of bread
1-full glass of water
cut up the 4 cloves put between the bread to make a sandwich. Eat the sandwich and drink the water as you eat just like any other sandwich. Eat the whole sandwich, and drink the whole glass of water. If you feel like you need more water you may drink more water because the garlic is a little tingy.
This remedy always work for me for high blood pressure and High Cholestrol. Try It, it also gives me energy."
[YEA] 08/06/2008: Leland from Pickering, MO: "I had suffered from acid flux reflex for about two years (off & on) and I heard about takinig ACV. I did and had the worst heartburn ever. But I continued to take it. After about a day or more the pain went away and I was able to get along fine. I think if people would continue the treatment or put one tablespoon of Vin in 8 oz of water it would cut down the pain. I still take it when I have too. Every once in a while I take a generic Zantac which helps. I am still a great believer in natural remedies. I am now looking up the sites for ACV, honey and garlic to help in helping to get my body under control with weight and cholesterol. Just on garlic tablets, my cholesterol came down 20 pts in 6-8 months. Thanks for letting me share about ACV & honey. Leland"
[YEA] 02/03/2007: Cynthia from San Francisco, CA: "THIS INFORMATION WAS VERY HELPFUL FOR ME AND THE REMEDY GARLIC REMEDY WORKED FOR ME VERY WELL AND LOWERED MY BLOOD PRESSURE AND HIGH CHOLESTEROL. THANKS AGAIN HAVE A GOOD DAY."
Garlic and Lemon
08/12/2012: Michael from Ennis, Ireland: "garlic & lemon I need some information is it ok to add 3 litres of water to the half pint of juice that is left after blinden, and then boil and strain. And then add one pint to the mush that is left in the blinder & boil and then mix thank you"
[YEA] 04/01/2011: Peter from Eden, Nsw Australia: "20 years ago suffering chest pains, I had an angiogram and plaque was found in my arteries. Many of my family have had heart problems. I was informed that I would probably need bi pass surgery in about fifteen years from that date if the blockages became worse. A friend who had been scheduled for bi pass surgery told me of a mixture he had taken that completely cleared all the blockages so much that they cancelled the surgery as they said there was no need as all his arteries were found to be clear of blockages. Anyway at a later date I tried the mixture. After 2 months my doctor sent me for MRI scans. They found most of my arteries clear of any plaque or blockages.
So hopefully you can use the following information to help someone. Clearing veins and arteries also helps blood circulation.
First use fresh water to wash the lemons and garlic.
Take 6 lemons cut up including peel (Make sure the lemons are the thin-skinned types). If you can only get the thick-skinned ones simply peel the thin outer yellow peel. Place this in a heap ready to go into the mixture. Then peel off the thick white stuff and throw away. No need on the thin-skinned lemons, just chop them up. The garlic (30 cloves) you usually get about ten cloves per bulb of garlic. Just separate the cloves and chop up (no need to worry about a bit of peel or shell), as the whole lot will be strained when finished.
Place 3 lemons and 15 cloves of garlic in blender or vitamiser. Top it up with water (If you want you can add a little sugar for taste) and then vitamise.
Pour into a metal pot. Then repeat the process with the other 3 lemons and 15 cloves of garlic. Finally was the vitamiser out with another litre of water and pour this also into the pot. Reason for only mixing half quantities is the standard vitamiser or blender will not take 6 lemons, 30 cloves of garlic an 3 litres of water. Overloading will damage the blender; so small loads are better than large.
Bring the pot to boil, and then simmer for five minutes. Pour through a strainer, and let liquid drain into another pot. Finally when all the liquid has drained into the pot, leave it for some time to cool.
When it has cooled use a strainer and funnel to pour into bottles. Note: give the mixture time to drain through the strainer. And do not keep the slurry from the strainer. Simply throw it away.
You should finish up with (About 3 to 4 Litre Bottles Quantity). Store in fridge. NOTE: DO NOT USE PLASTIC BOTTLES(Plastic bottles with filled warm or hot liquid can cause serious health problems), as plastic particles will leach into liquid in bottle. Use only GLASS Bottles to keep the mixture in.
First Dosage: Drink 1 small standard glass each Day for three weeks. Then stop for one week.
Second Dosage: Drink 1 small standard glass each day for the final three weeks.
Remember this mixture will definitely clear all the plaque that it has taken your whole life to build up. So it should be many years before heart blockages reoccur. The high antioxidant levels in the mixture could also help address the problem of other conditions such as cholesterol, high blood pressure, kidney, bursitis, fluid and renal problems.
You can also warm the liquid if preferred, or even dilute it with water and ice for a refreshing summer drink. The lemons kill the smell of garlic on your breath. The secret of the mixture is it's easy to prepare, and inexpensive to make up.
Note: The mixture originally comes from Ireland and has worked naturally for many people"Replies

Just wondering if a glass pot would do, or if metal is a must? Also, wondering if a small glass would be an 8 oz. Glass? Thanks for taking the time to share with us. Kay"
04/03/2011: Isabelle from Garden Grove, Ca replies: "thank you Peter for you info it look great, vue that I really like garlic and lemon too.

11/08/2011: Lou from Elk Grove, Ca replies: "How many times a day and when to take? Do I take it before or after the meal? Can I take the ACV and Baking soda drink as well, right after or before this mixture? Any response will be greatly appreciated. Thanks a lot in advance yo all who are willing to share their experinces."
03/22/2012: Bjanna from Beijing, China replies: "Similar to the garlic and lemon cure (amazing for high blood pressure! ) from a Bulgarian professor: Peel 400g garlic and grind it together with 4 whole lemons. Add 300g honey. Put the mixture in a jar and let stay in the fridge for 25 days. Then every morning before breakfast take the following: Put 3-4 tbsp yoghurt in a cup and add a teasoopnful of the mixture. Add 20 drops of propolis tincture and 1tsp cinnamon. Mix well and take. Do the same before going to bed. In a few days the blood pressure would go down to normal."
