I have found that drinking small amounts of vinegar and putting it on food such as pizza or greens has lowered my high cholesterol without the use of drugs. I was on Vytorin and have discontinued use and my last blood work showed normal cholesterol ranges.

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!

Many people with high cholesterol have tried this drink with much success.

Recipe:
2 cups of grape juice
1 cup of apple juice
1/4 cup of apple cider vinegar

Mix together and take 2 ounces before your largest meal everyday; only 2 ounces is needed for results.

hello, ...recently, about a week ago I took the initiative to look up cholesterol on Google, in hope of finding some natural treatment for my high cholesterol. ...and I stumbled across your site, which introduced me to 'apple cider vinegar' treatment. A treatment I have applied for a week now as directed, along with considerable garlic, each day. ...and my health in that one week has had a complete turn around. I haven't felt like this for over two years. I don't know if I owe it to apple cider vinegar or the combination of that, with garlic, but my health has made a complete turn around, in just one week. And although they tell me garlic can lower blood pressure I will keep this treatment up for a while, until at least I have brought my cholesterol down to normal levels. ...anyway, from deeply down in my heart I thank you greatly, because for over two years now I have been completely down health wise, which stressed me out considerably throughout that period, since I never felt any comfort in my state of health. ...thank you very much.

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.

I am 48 yrs old and have suffered from severe insomnia for 9 years. I have taken ambien sleeping pills for the last 5 years just to get a good night sleep. I started taking apple cider vinegar and baking soda for eczema and it CURED my insomnia. I mean totally cured. No more sleeping pills and I am not exaggerating when I say I sleep like i did in my 20's. At first my skin felt like it was burning for a couple of days then when it was gone so were many ailments. It also lowered my cholesterol 30 points, and I no longer have acid reflux. Thank you for your website. Its been such a blessing.

Sorry about your ecz. And your chol. problems. I am not an expert, however, from the years of reading, have you addressed a congested liver?You may know about liver cleanses, but if you don't I'd read up on them first, do some thinking, get feedback and don't jump into things and see what your higher self recommends. I am about to embark on them. I found several that are not as drastic as Hulda Clark's, although when I get the druthers I will do that one as well.

You might want to go to Curezone.com and see what they may have to add, however, I would definitely stay away from the debate forums, at least for me they're a melange of highly principled individuals to lunatics.

Keep putting one foot in front of the other and don't give up! You're on your way to your answers and solution! The best to you. : )

I have been taking acv for about 45 days to lower my cholesterol and in hopes of helping my blood pressure. Today, 2-14-2007 I went to my doctor for blood work. My b/p was 177 (higher then I want) but my good cholesterol was much better then my bad. I am happy and will continue my 2 times a day of 2T/acv in a glass with 1/4 t/baking soda. Thanks.

This is amazing and TRUE! Using remedies I found on this site, I lowered my total cholestrol 72..yes 72 points in one month! My Doctor called me personally to tell me NOT to fill my prescritp for Lipitor because he was "shocked" and "amazed" that my cholestol had dropped to NORMAL! He told me to "keep doing what I was doing"!

One month ago I found this website after my doctor told me my total cholestol was 272 and I'm a young 40-something year old woman! He gave me one month to "get it under control" since I was hesitant to start Lipitor.

I used ACV daily, at first 1 tsp. before each meal then working my way up to 1Tbs. twice daily, at breakfast and dinner. I also added daily at dinner time, 1200mg of Red Yeast Rice Extract, 100mg of CoQ10. 1000 mg and of Fish Oil. If I knew I were going to be eating a high fat meal, I took 3 chitosan capsules before those meals ( as needed not at each meal). I also used fresh Cilantro "chelation" daily. Basically a cilantro pesto made with 1 c. fresh cilantro, 2 Tbs. olive oil, 1/2 c. almonds, 3 cloves fresh garlic and the juice of one fresh lemon..pulse in food processor until it's a paste then eat 1 to 3 teaspoons of it daily. It worked for me, familial high cholestrol was a factor for those of you with a genetic predisposition. Try it!!!

re: High Cholesterol -- I neglected to add that my triglycerides also dropped dramatically from 313 to 168 in ONE MONTH following the Apple Cider Vinegar and supplement program I cited above. I'm looking at my test results as I write this and it truly is amazing! I couldn't be more surprised and pleased. I wish you success and good health!

I take the ACV with 100% Grape juice. This is also supposed to be good for high Cholesterol. In March 2013 my Cholesterol was 249. On May 6, 2013 I had a heart attack (only 56 yrs. old). Of course they put me on statins. I could not tolerate them at all. Legs felt like knives being stabbed in them, migraine headache and very weak, no energy. I immediately went to EC website and found that ACV (2X a day), Niacin(1X a day), Red rice yeast (1200mg 2X a day), Ginkgo (1 X a day), Vit D3 (1X a day) and B-12 (1X a day). I take these supplements throughout the day. My Cholesterol has dropped all the way to 186!!!!!!!

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. For more information go to www.bantransfats.com


Baking Soda  

Posted by Phyllis (Weldon, Calif. U S A) on 09/27/2009

I cant find anywhere on this site about baking soda water bringing down high cholesterol numbers. Does anyone know about this? Does baking soda water do this? And if so whats the recipe ? I will not take prescriptions. Please help. I already had one heart attack and dont want another. Thanks so much. Phyllis

hey phyllis, I don't know about the baking soda but i've been trying to get off my cholesterol medicine, have gone from 80mg to 40 mg and hopefully get off it altogether. the biggest thing for me was a diet change. I'v stopped eating fried foods & fast food. started eating alot of fish & steamed vegies. I started taking a supplement called pantethine, you can take up to 1200mg a day, i've been taking 600mg a day. i've been getting blood work done every 3 months. i'll be going sometime next month to see if my numbers got any lower. i'll let you know, good luck.

Phyllis, I wanted to share my cholesterol story with you. My total cholesterol was well over 251. The doctor was threatening me with yet another prescription medicine that I would have to take for the rest of my life. I was determined to avoid that and get off my blood pressure medication in the process. I began to take Milk thistle for the cholesterol. In just three months, I was able to lower the total cholesterol to 189. I must mention that I did in fact change my diet. I avoided bread, sugar, potatoes; began eating more vegetables and protein. I managed to lose 15 lbs, and my blood pressure medicine as well.

I would also like to share that this site has been very helpful to me, my grandchild (egg whites and fever), and my husband avoided a 2nd heart attach by putting cayenne pepper under his tongue whenever he was feeling ill. We ended up in the hospital, but the doctor stated that the episode was only an angina, not a heart attack and no evidence of damage to the heart. Thanks earth clinic, for all the education that you have provided me.

Word of caution, it's not "just" angina. Angina is a symptom that the heart is not getting enough oxygen and is usually caused by a significantly blocked artery (usually 90% or more). Immediate medical treatment is required to relieve the blockage.

If you ever experience Angina (tightness or pain in the chest along with numbness or pain down the underside of either arm) which is most often brought about during periods of physical activity, you need to immediately go to the Emergency Room.

Please let people know of this information.. My cholesterol lvl is very high thus I'm only 28.. The doctors insist I start using statins.. I don't want to... please share this info http://www.westonaprice.org/cardiovascular-disease/benefits-of-high-cholesterol

Denis, I reviewed Dr. Uffe Ravnskov's book on the book review page. It is a very important book full of easy to understand information. First he was demonised in I think Swedish TV, later he was reinstated in the papers because after all he was right. I think that they burned his first book on TV. Stay away from statins, please.... my father goes through life with awful pain in his feet because of statins but he won't stop and probably by now it wouldn't help anyway! Try to find a good natural doctor, someone you can go for advice at all times! I haven't found one yet but I hope one day I will! Sometimes one can feel quite lonely and confused with all the information out there! All the best....

Do not worry too much about cholesterol, it is essential to your good health, it is the bodies messenger system and a tiny fraction of which is caused by diet. Beware Statins, there has been talk for as long as I can remember about having them pulled off the market for the number of serious side effects. Statins are extremely dangerous and the longer you take them the more likely you are to have serious long term irreversible side effects. I have read that only exceptional high readings of cholesterol should be of any concern, ie almost off the charts. The cholesterol myth started in the 50s and in spite of all eveidence to the contrary was never debumked, whereas the link to heart disease, diabetes and most other modern plagues has all been firmly established in rats and mice with Sugar.

Please worry more about your blood pressure as this is a more accurate guage of your hearts health. There is a huge amount of information here on EC to help you with this. Try Co Enzyme Q10 and Vitamin C, Aloe Vera Juice, absolutely Eliminate refined Sugar and High Fructose Corn Syrup from your diet. Take 1/2 tsp Cayenne Pepper mixed with hot water building up to 1 whole tsp gradually, read the Cayenne Pepper section first. Swap to healthy fats, Coconut Oil being the best. Also I would take EDTA for as long as you can afford to, this will clean your arteries right out and give you some peace of mind.

Good Luck and stay away from Statins no matter what.

Cameron.

Cholesterol is reduced with the bergamot juice, international studies attest to its effectiveness. The Calabria, in Italy, is the only manufacturer in the world.
The bergamot juice should be natural, no preservatives and sulfites. The bergamot juice contains natural statins.
