I had no problems with cholesterol, I started having celery juice and my last test shows my cholesterol of 253. Now I have some doubts about the celery juice. It is good for cleaning the stomach though.


Cholesterol Testing

Posted by Beth (Atlanta) on 11/01/2013

My cholesterol has gone way up. I'm not too concerned, but does what I eat for several days before the test make a difference? I had fasted for at least 12 hours, and what I ate the meal before that was vegetables that had been steamed and had only sea salt on them. I'm not a big eater, 5'6" 120 lbs, but it went up 60 pts from 6 months prior. Just wondering.

Beth: Cells synthesize simple molecules in a 37 step process to make cholestrol. Total body content for your weight is 30g. Most ingested cholestrol is esterfied and poorly absorbed. Cholestrol intake in food has little, if any, effect on cholestrol levels. Cholestrol is required to maintain membranes, cell signaling, and provide insulation for more efficient conduction of impulses. Elevated levels of ldl, idl, and vldl are regarded as atherogenic. Resistan, a protein secreted by fat tissue, has been shown to increase production of these in liver cells, as do stress hormones. 85% of the food people eat is burned as fuel in the mitochondria. Good food makes clean energy. Bad food makes toxic by products like stress hormones and bad cholestrol. The best fuel is sugar from raw organic fruits. Fructose, not starch, is nessesary for cholestrol synthesis and the production of ubiquenol. I take the concentrates raw honey, raw organic whole dried cane juice, and raw organic buckwheat flour because they are more convenient and less costly. Nutritionists for world class athletes recommend taking carbs, oils, and proteins together 6 times a day in snacks rather than in 3 large meals. Raw proteins are much better than cooked. The proper ratio by weight is 85% carbs, 10% protein, and 5% oils. The proper ratio of oils is 50% saturated fat, I take coconut oil, 10% omega 3, 15% omega 6, and 25% omega 9.

Hello Mike 62,

You mention the superiority of raw proteins as opposed to cooked; which do you use to get to the 10 percent of total intake? Thanks for your informative posts (all your posts are informative).

Hello Beth from Atlanta,

Re: your concern about cholesterol

Good News! The "medical/drug industry" has propogated a myth about cholesterol. The FACT is that cholesterol is absolutely necessary for health in the human body. The Good News is that you do not have to be concerned about cholesterol levels. In fact, if you want to think of it this way, if the Doc tells you that you have "hight cholesterol" just respond..."That's GOOD. Got to have that cholesterol. Both HDL and LDL. High cholesterol is good for me."

The truth is:

Cholesterol is made by the liver and transported in "shuttles" out of the liver (protein suttles) called LDL and after the body uses the cholesterol which was carried by the LDL protein box cars for proper body functioning (especially the brain needs cholesterol) then HDL shuttles carry the used cholesterol back to the liver for reprocessing.

The test that is performed on us by the industry ... the test that gives us cholesterol levels is a measurement not of the cholesterol level in our body but of the "shuttles"....and 95 percent of the folks who just read that think I must be mistaken:

So here is the youtube to read the MOST informative 9 minute analysis of the truth I've come across. Google: "Dr. Rosedale cholesterol youtube" and you'll find his 9 minute video.

Here is one of the points in this amazing video: The tests for cholesterol given to us is not measuring cholesterol but rather the "shuttles" which are not the cholesterol itself. The cholesterol tests are giving you "shuttle" reading, not the cholesterol/fat reading. Really....look at the Rosedale video.

There is some argument that very small cholesterol (which is not measured by 99 percent of all cholesterol tests) could be a source in "sticking" to the "gap junction" in the lining of the arteries thereby oxydizing and inflaming to produce ultimately blockage/plaque. But the real culprit is not the small ldl, says Dr. Rosedale, (overcome by proper diet of good raw foods) ... the real culprit is SUGAR ... good old deadly white sugar.

The effort, therefore, to make people afraid of LDL levels is totally misplaced...we MUST have LDL suttles to carry cholesterol throughout our bodies...I say MUST have it...or we will see a collapse of the body system. The rise in dementia in the last twenty years is likely due to a rise in the use of statin drugs.

Statin drugs keep the liver from producting cholesterol; and remember cholesterol is good for us. The whole effort to 1. Measure cholesterol is at best a misunderstanding of what is actually being measured (remember the cholesterol reading is NOT a cholesterol reading...it is a "shuttle" reading...LDL and HDL are NOT cholesterols) and 2. the body must have cholesterol to function. We will die without cholesterol.

So how do we keep the blockages from taking place? Isn't the probem fats? No...

Well, remember, the biggest culprit is ...again-sugar. So break the sugar habit and the sugar related cravings.

I thought I'd never get rid of the sugar cravings until I understood that the hypothalymus is the key to telling the body what to do relative to metabolism; In one day I ended my cravings. I used in the morning on an egg, olive oil and no sugar at all in the morning. For lunch I eat anything but with a teaspoon of olive oil somewhere in the mix and again at night a good oil, such as grape seed oil. No sugar at night. The next day you'll find your cravings are gone. Repeat the "good oil" use every day. The good oil can be used on anything of course; not just on an egg. I usually drizzle a tablespoon of olive oil on a third piece of whole wheat bread and I've found I'm not hungry until lunch...no cravings. The hypothalymus will respond by not using the easy to metabolize sugar and instead will be told to use oils (like my body fat) instead. Cravings end.

So please look at the "Dr. Rosedale youtube" video. Only nine minutes and you will go away wondering how so many "smart" folks in the medical industry could be so incorrect about such a fundamental issue.

Now next in the "how to keep plaque from forming" analysis: God designed us to consume foods that give us natural Vitamin E...not synthetic E...and the E has the effect of making sure the lining of arteries and veins are not tacky, which allows plaque formation if they are sticky. Even our blood can get think and sticky and E keeps that from happening. So if I get enough E, then the blood is thinned and not thick. Thus I do not need asprin. God made E to do that for us. And even if we get plaque formation, the E keeps inflamation at a minimum because E is an anti oxident. E also assists in oxygen carrying and thus helps all muscles (heart) to stay healthy. (Two big issues in cardio health: Plaque formation and oxygen delivery. A problem with either two can kill you.) I take 800 IUs daily of natural E. E has been milled out of most foods and soil depletion has taken it out of other sources; at least in the quantities we need. But at 800 IUs E is serving a theraputic function. That is, there is a longevity issue at high levels of E usage. So if you are not attempting such theraputic levels, a person should at least get 200 IUs daily. The natural E...NOT synthetic like you get at a drug store.

sugar is not cause of heart disease

"The interesting thing is that most cases of heart disease in the twentieth century are of a form that is new, namely heart attack or myocardial infarction—a massive blood clot leading to obstruction of a coronary artery and consequent death to the heart muscle. Myocardial infarction (MI) was almost nonexistent in 1910 and caused no more than 3, 000 deaths per year in 1930. Dr. Paul Dudley White, who introduced the electrocardiograph machine to America, stated the following during a 1956 American Heart Association televised fund-raiser: "I began my practice as a cardiologist in 1921 and I never saw an MI patient until 1928." By 1960, there were at least 500, 000 MI deaths per year in the US. Rates of stroke have also increased and the cause is similar—blockage in the large arteries supplying the brain with blood." http://www.examiner.com/article/american-heart-assassination

In recent studies, it was found that the so called "bad" cholesterol became more useful as people aged.

The amount of sugar consumed by the population hasn't changed much since 1900. Sugar has been demonized for a long time. Moderate consumption of sugar is not a problem. If I make a large lemon meringue pie, I only use around 110 grams of sugar. If I eat half the pie today, I only am eating 55 grams of sugar which is way less than average. People don't have to give up sweet things like pies, cake and ice cream since they generally don't contain a lot of sugar. Ideally, using non refined cane sugar may be even more healthier.

Telling people to give up sugar is just silly. There may be other health conditions it may be more relevant in but heart disease is not one of them. People can experiment with their diet to see what effect it has on them.

I am 59 years old female and you would think a doctor would check for plaque in the arteries or do that new test for plaque instead of many invasive tests. I have high blood pressure and taking meds and some other alternative things but doctors never want to get at the root of it.. It could be so many things but why not rule out some things and all. They do blood work but never finding root causes. I am assuming its to sell medication.. what are your thoughts?? Thank YOU.

Hello Prioris,

I really enjoy your informative posts.

You had on on one of my fav subjects...cardio issues and sugar consumption relationship, which you deny is, in fact causative; sugar has nothing to do with cardio (MI) problems you said. You also state that sugar consumption is about the same as around 1900.

What? No. I mean NO. How about an increase per capita from 40 pounds a year to 130 pounds a year.

Great charts and lots of information on per person concumption on "Daily Health Posts, Feb 13, 2013" ... there has been an explosion of sugar consumption especially with the advent of soft drinks.

I started reading about this huge consumption explosion about 35 years ago in the book, Sugar Blues.

And after much of my life eating too much sugar (ice cream at night) and getting me to pre diabetic condition, and seeing my dad die from diabetic complications, this subject is very serious in my analysis of the explosion of diabeties in America. I hope you do not believe that sugar has nothing to do with diabeties.

You correctly note that heart clotting is a recent phenomenon and it is. There is no corrolation you say because sugar intake is the same for the past 100 or so years. You are totally wrong about consumption but corrolation does not prove causation. You are correct about that. My belief is that the refining of grains has depleted our food of its anti clotting effectiveness; esp the loss of natural Vit E.

Loss of Vitamin E said the Doctors Shute and Shute (MD doctors who were brothers from Canada) who wrote extensively on this subject during the '50s is the cause of the increase in cardio problems. So I actually think you are correct in a way...sugar may not be THE causative reason for cardio problem but it may be one of the biggest reasons there is inflamation and oxidation in the veins and arteries because there is not enough E to neutralize the sugar (E acts as an anti oxident.)

And finally, there has been a change in the type of sugar we eat today compared to a hundred years ago; then it was much more raw in nature; more cane was present...fiber whereas today it is pure sugar. And the way sugar today is consumed has 50 percent fructose which impacts the liver much more profoundly than glucose alone. Glucose calories impact at only 1 out of about 27 calories on the pancreas where fructos is the entire caloric impact on the pancreas. This is much more glycemic impact than we would have see 100 years ago.

In other words, sugar has changed in quality as well as quantity.

Statins versus Citrus Bergamot

Citrus Bergamot has some free text articles on Pub Med that describe effects such as

"The results are shown below, but patients who received 500 or 1,000 mg of BPF (bergamot polyphenol fraction, essentially refined bergamot oil) for 30 consecutive days saw a significant reduction in total cholesterol, LDL, triglycerides and blood glucose coupled with a significant increase in HDL levels.2 Mar 2023 "

It is from sour inedible orange mainly grown in Sicily and is fairly widely available as a supplement, even in Australia at one major

chemist chain as well as online from the usual well known big American supplement suppliers.

A number of testimonials on them have (seemingly genuine) testimonials about reductions in their levels. My open minded GP read one study on my phone when trying to put me on statins

and said, "This is rather interesting." A friend had her cholesterol levels drop markedly after she put herself on CB when her GP also wanted her on statins. He did not want to know why but conceded her latest

levels did not now warrant a statin.

Coconut Oil

Success! I have been using virgin coconut oil for the past 4 months, typically 2-3 Tbs a day. I just received my blood test results. Total Cholesterol 234, HDL 86, LDL 131, Triglycerides 83, Fasting blood glucose 96. While my overall cholesterol did increase from last year's 182, my HDL was much higher than last year's 60. LDL also increased from last year's 102. I am extremely pleased with these results since the all important ratio (Total/HDL) decreased from 3.0 to 2.7. Finally, I have also found it amazing that I have not had a cold or any illness during this time. In the past, I would normally get some kind of sore throat or cold during the winter months. Energy levels are high and I do find that the coconut oil also keeps me regular.

I use coconut oil anytime that I get a sunburn and it works like a charm to relieve the skin and to help prevent peeling. I also know that when people in my family began to cook with it instead of any other oil they had a drop in cholesterol.

My cholesterol was a little high (212) although my ratio of low to high density cholesterol was fine. I was already using a low carbohydrate diet and I added 1 tablespoon of extra virgin coconut oil daily. After 3 months, my blood work was re-done. My total cholesterol had declined to 187.

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.

Treats Cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, Triglycerides, Blood pressure, Fatty Liver

Daily Water Salad

07/10/2021

I created this curement on my own. This has amazing results. I use this daily salad for at least 12 years, usually 5 to 6 times per week, one time a day (every midday or in the morning). It my keeps all my analysis of Cholesterol, LDL Cholesterol, Triglycerides, Blood pressure, cleaned fatty liver, all in normal levels.

Speak with your doctor before using this curement. Use this curement completely on your own responsibility (earthclinic or me, have no responsibility), since this is given as a suggestion.

It works directly for lowering Cholesterol, lowering Triglycerides, lowering blood pressure, cleaning fatty liver.

Use:

1 garlic clove (2 grams about)

2-3 grams of onion

4-5 grams of celery

4-5 grams of parsley

4-5 grams of lettuce

Put this in a blender with water. Drink this juice, within 7 minutes, after you get the juice out of the blender (Do not let the juice more than 7 minutes in the glass, without drinking it, since it will weaken its power). Add some extra water after making the juice. You can use the juice in one or two glasses of water (Use two glasses of water in case the taste is difficult for you). It has rather difficult taste, but the results really worth it.

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.

A popular search is for remedies that can lower high cholesterol.

Diatomaceous Earth is very effective at lowering high cholesterol. Even at lower dosing, but a tablespoon per day dosing is quite effective and fairly fast. This allows you to completely avoid the statins which are well established to create new health problems.


Diatomaceous Earth

If you have high cholesterol and high triglycerides but want to avoid statins, then according to the abstract below, Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth may be a reasonable alternative. It has worked very well for me, but I am taking significantly more than what was used in this study. I did not get the increased HDL cholesterol benefit mentioned in the study, but my LDL and triglycerides stay about in the middle of the normal range with no special diet now.

The dosage they used in the study is the smallest I have ever seen mentioned for people. I started out at one heaping tablespoon in a cup of water in the morning and one heaping tablespoon in a cup of water in the evening for a total of two heaping tablespoons of Food Grade DE per day for two weeks. I now take DE only once a day first thing in the morning at one heaping teaspoon and that is my maintenance dose.

The fact that the study got good results with just a total of 750 mg/day divided into to three separate doses throughout the day lets me know that I can probably get by with significantly less DE as a maintenance dose. Compared to other things like ACV, the taste is much more tolerable and mild. The cost is very low if purchased in containers of 20 pounds or more. At my current dose a 20 lb bag will last for many years and costs less than $25 delivered to my door. It's even cheaper if you can get it from a farm supply. Just be sure it is Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth and nothing else. DE is purported to have other health benefits also. Another benefit is that if I go on vacation and forget my DE, no problem as the effects last awhile. In the study they said the benefits were still present after 4 weeks of no DE. Do a little research and see what you think.Here is the abstract and remember to get your doctor's approval and supervision before trying DE.
