Good News To Share!

Recommended Posts

A few weeks back there was a thread about cholesterol, and I promised I would share the results of my husbands trial of lowering his cholesterol without the use of RX drugs.

6 Weeks ago, his total cholesterol was 261

LDL 174

Triglycerides were 210

They were checked yesterday and his total is down to 228

his LDL is 161, but his triglycerides went down to 136, WOW!!

He took Red Rice Yeast and non-flushing niacin... can't exactly tell you which one works as there is currently a debate on whether Red rice yeast actually works now or not... and of course he watched his diet. Handful of almonds everyday...

Hope this helps any of you who are fighting cholesterol and resistant to the drugs like him. His doctor told him she didn't care if he was taking the medicine or not, it was working and to keep doing it.

Happy day!! :D

That is excellent! Those drugs are worse than useless, anyway, they cause heart attacks and strokes. The triglycerides are really the one and only thing to be concerned about, and those really dropped!
