Cholesterol Remedy

"I recieve emails from Prevention Online. These come weekly and have lots of interesting articles. This was "Posted: Apr 25, 2004". I wanted a safe place to keep it and to share it with the people of Recipezaar. This is posted in the Health Discussions: Conquering Cholesterol. Here is a link for Prevention for cholesterol:,2469,s1-683,00.html . I like to find tonics and cures that are affordable and use natural ingredients. Sometimes we need prescriptions, but a little prevention may just go a long way. I see a pattern of age and weight as contrubuting factors, besides genes and this is a natural occurance for so many of us. Even if we are within a healthy weight range, we may not be the weight we were when we were teenagers and 20 somethings. I'm thinking this contributes individually and am interested in finding out. I hope this helps somebody!"

  1. I took this every night before bed for 3 months and my cholesterol came down 70 points to under 200 total. Both my doctor and I were surprised. I continue to take it every other night now for maintenance. My doctor was so surprised that he now has the recipe.
  2. This concoction really worked for me. My LDL was 140 and after 11 weeks of drinking a tablespoon with about 1/2 cup of water every morning, my LDL dropped to 100. My overall cholesterol went from 255 to 195. Unbelievable!! I’m thrilled. This will now be a regular part of my diet. I blended everything in a blender.
  3. I just mixed this up. I have to get my cholesterol down or the doctor wants to put me on meds. She is giving me three months to do it. Hopefully this works but will give an update as soon as I find out. Thank you for posting this??
  4. Made a batch this evening. I hope to get DH to take this every evening. Will report back with the results.
  5. KissaMew, Although my fiance has not tried this remedy yet, I am aware of Prevention Mag and know how reliable they are. After hearing news today that the love of my life has high blood pressure, it was nice to see that someone took the time to put a remedy like this for people to try. As a regular on RecipeZaar, it is nice to see a sense of community within. I will have to submit back and let you know how this worked out for him over time! We will try this remedy, believe me! Thanks again, Trish D. in Birmingham, AL

<p>I love all animals, but can't have them all! Cats are so easy to live with because they are like little gypsies (Notice my kitty, Jasper, in my pictures, can you spell SWEET and ADORABLE?). He really is the strong silent type! He's 16 years now, from our local Humane Society, a 2x repeat offender who picked us when he was 2ish, being his 3rd family, he's truly our charm! You can take cats anywhere you need to live. I adore dogs, especially large dogs and I love horses. <br /><br />*Photo credits: The crochet blanket Jasper is sleeping on is the Red Heart ripple pattern. My Mom used to do this one alot and my friend Paula does this pattern and helped me learn it. You can't see all the colors but there are a few! It's my first ripple blanket and I must admit, I really like it! I found my quilt online, through a catalog (I recieve alot of those), it reminds me of the quilts my Auntie taught me to make and was the inspiration for my ripple colors.~ <br /><br />LOVE southern food, it is soooo addictive and so satisfying to make and eat! I also love to make desserts, although we don't really eat that much dessert at home, so I make the desserts for our potlucks at work! Nobody gets to diet at a potluck! ~ <br /><br />I am pure Finn, 100% American. Both my parents are Finn, my Da has found the ship's manifest for his grandparents and my Mom's father came in 1905 as at the tender age of 5. My Dad loves family tree research so he does this for us! You can sure tell a Finn, but you can't tell 'em much!. So, Kissa is Finnish for cat, and, of course, they Mew, a deciding factor in what chef name I chose. ~ <br /><br />My Mom loves Southern cooking, from the time I could see into a Dutch Oven or Skillet this is how she taught me to cook! My Daddy made bread but I confess I am NO GOOD. Help! ~ <br /><br />I realized in my adult life that I had been raised old country and I have been fascinated with culture since. My Dad is retired Air Force. We've met alot of stranger's who have become friends from many regions, hence my love for diversity among people. I would say at least 85% of the men in my family have served this country with honor and Thank You to every brother and sister in the U.S. Military for your heart felt service! Nothing like a man in uniform!!! ~ <br />My son has served in the United States Navy and has been deployed several times. He is often thought of as older because of the maturity our military has to experience and become. I am so proud to be an American! And I am so proud we have a voluntary military! There is true devotion in the hearts of these men and women! ~ <br /><br />I have three daughters also. They are admireable young women who do what it takes to survive this world and retain the ever male-challenging feminine mystique while they are at it. My eldest daughter works for a Dentist, my middle daughter teaches Kindergarten and my youngest daughter works with home phone services. All of my children are adults, although no grandbabies as of this time. I don't mind because I need me time too! ~ <br /><br />Three chef's on Recipezaar that seem to cook like I like are MeanChef (now adopted out, but I saved recipes!), NurseDi and MissNezz. Lots of homestyle and Southern cooking! I have also enjoyed perusing Iowahorse's recipe's because there are so many for wild game and just plain good cooking! I have become a fan of Mama's Cookin too, great baby recipes, big and small! There are so many terrific cooks on 'Zaar that you can't just pick just one! I love collecting all the recipes and techniques! Thank you ALL for being here! <br /><br />How do I rate? Well, If I try and love it I go five and up and if I think it looks delish, I give a four, only because I want to try it and then I can change ratings. Really though, I look for recipes that stick to the insides and look like you want to eat them. I've noticed alot of visual eaters in the world of mine and they head right for home cookin'! I save drink recipes just for the fun of it I guess, because I would need to be a bartender to make all of them! <br /><br />I have been getting emails from the 'Zaar letting me know about reviews and realize I have not been enjoying it like I should! I have been so busy with family obligations that my cooking has been minimal and I miss being here! Tinkerbell has kindly adopted me and I need to add something to my page for that. That is so ironic in so many ways, Tinkerbell! :&gt;</p>
