Natural Remedies for High Cholesterol

Avoid Trans Fats

High cholesterol can be lowered by avoiding foods with trans fats in them. Trans fats tend to raise LDL (bad) cholesterol and lower HDL (good) cholesterol. They are suspected of causing many health problems, including obesity, type 2 diabetes, and rigid arteries. In the ingredients list, if you see "partially hydrogenated" oils, do not eat.

I dilute ACV with a small amount of grape juice. I also drink close to 80 ounces of water daily. These beverages have lowered my cholesterol considerably!

For those who want to save money and be healthy, find an MD of Integrative Medicine. Sometimes it is also called Functional Medicine or Orthomolecular Medicine. If you use a chiropractor or other natural practicioner, your insurance probably won't pay for it. If you cannot afford insurance, use a naturopath or nutritionist. It is also not necesary to purchase your supplements from your practicioner. You will pay double for them. There are many quality brands but cheapest is probably not best quality. Check out Consumerlabs.com. I use iherb. Com, vitacost. Com, amazon. com, and luckyvitamin.com.

I'm 39 years old, 6'-0" 188lbs. I'm a pretty healthy looking athletic guy. I've been doing boxing training twice a week for 1.5 hours.... or surfing once a week 1 hour.

Anyways, I've had high cholesterol for at least 10 years. Once, it was recorded as high as 350. Other times it's been 250 or 230... Anyways, I was put on Simbastatin.

I started waking up in the middle of the night feeling out of breath. My first few breaths would hurt my chest until my lungs became re-inflated. Finally, I put two and two together, and realized it was the Statin. so.... My blood test came in at 207, which is great for me..... 145ldl, 39hdl, 93 trig. BUT, breathing is a priority for me right now.

So, I told my doctor I'm not taking the drugs anymore. I now realize my hair loss, memory loss, etc.... could all be results of the statins I've been taking for nearly 5 years.

I'm going to try this ACV, and red rice yeast, and Lecithin...... and see what happens.

Wish me luck.

You may want to reconsider the red rice yeast. It is well known that it will give a person the same side effects as the statins because of its similar chemical structure. It did me. I couldn't tolerate any of the statins either. Bad muscle pain. I am 62 and had a heart attack 12 years ago followed by 7 vessel bypass surgery, then 8 stents. They all clogged up and I had bypass surgery again 3 months ago. I'm not convinced that cholesterol was the clogging factor but I am going to give the vinegar a good try. I think it may have been the fact that I took calcium supplements since about age twenty. My arteries were very "calcified."

I was told by my doctor that my cholesterol was high (240). I discovered your web site and learned about the apple cider vinegar, I've been trying it with water along with fish oil/flax seed oil/garlic supplements. i also added a little exercise and I've never felt so great. I will soon have another blood test to recheck my cholesterol levels. i am confident that my cholesterol levels have lowered to normal levels.

Water may be the answer but how much? You can drink too much water also....... Mississippi girl.
