My Cholesterol Dropped 56 Points with Cholesteine and Steel Cut Oats
On Sept. 11, 2010 my cholesterol was 236. The good was not high enough and the bad was not low enough.
My doctor wanted to put me on medicine. I asked him to give me a chance to do something about it myself first. He gave me an order to get the cholesterol checked in January of 2011.
My friend Jan had told me about you, so I looked up your website and signed up and ordered Cholesteine. My husband started fixing organic steel cut oats for me. He added a little honey and stevia to them. I eat a bowl of the oats almost every morning for breakfast.
On Nov. 11, 2010 my cholesterol was checked again and it was 198. Two months later, on January 17, 2011 my cholesterol was checked again. My doctor's office called and told me my cholesterol was 180. The nurse said the good is higher than the goal and the bad is lower than the goal. The doctor said to continue what I was doing and he'd
see me next Sept. for my annual check up.
The Cholesteine and steel cut oats are the only change I have made to my diet. We eat a lot of chicken breasts and other healthy stuff, salads, veggies, etc. However, breakfast is my favorite meal and that's what I order many times when we eat out. We don't buy hardly any beef, but get a hamburger sometimes. I would say the bulk of our diet is pretty healthy, but I eat what I want.
I know that the Cholesteine and the oats have made all the difference! I would encourage anyone to try the Cholesteine before giving in to pharmaceuticals. Pharma always has such a long list of side effects! Thank you for doing what you do and being there!
I Lowered My LDL Cholesterol 55 Points in 6 Months
I turned 50 this year and since I never go to the doctor, my wife was adamant I have a physical and blood workup done. I’ve been healthy and athletic all of my life, so my weight was fine and bodyfat was less than 15%, but my cholesterol and blood pressure were high – really high.
I eat well (or so I thought) and my dad always had high cholesterol, so the doctor said it was hereditary and there was nothing I could do about it. He wrote me a prescription for a cholesterol drug, but I said “no thanks” and wanted to see if I could lower it naturally.
I called my friend Dale who works with you and he said I should read your book, Kill Cholesterol Before Cholesterol Kills You. It really opened my eyes about what a good diet is.
I made the commitment to switch to a plant-based diet, although I must admit I was concerned how I would get enough protein to maintain muscle size and strength. I always thought that was what animal meat was for.
I also started taking the formulas he recommended: Cholesteine, Liquid Minerals, Nattokinase, Liv-Rx and Omega 3/6/9.
I work in construction and the guys normally eat fast food for lunch. I would bring a big salad for lunch and they teased me. For the first few weeks, I didn’t really feel much different, but I kept with the program. And then I realized something – the guys couldn’t keep up with me in the afternoons. I had all this energy and they were sluggish and always wanting to stop and take a break.
After 6 months, I went back to the doctor for a blood test, thinking for sure I’d made some progress. He said he’d call me in a few days and we would discuss the results. Later that night, he called and asked, “What are you doing?” I thought, “Oh no, what’s wrong?” My LDL cholesterol (the bad kind) dropped 55 points, from 164 to 109! He couldn’t believe it.
He said, “nobody drops their cholesterol like this without drugs. People might lower their cholesterol by 20 points, but no one lowers it like this!” He then said, “well, I guess there’s no need to put you on a statin drug now.”
Your program and changing to a plant-based lifestyle has made an incredible difference in my energy, how I sleep and best of all lowered my cholesterol!
