Good results

Saturday, January 19, 2013

I went to the doctor today to get results of my
bloodtests. The main one I was worried about
was the best. My cholesterol was down to 5 from 6.7
My LDL/HDL ratio is 1.7 down from 2.3
My Chol/HDL ratio is 2.9 down from 3.5

I had been pretty slack at taking my meds(Crestor) and
instead I was eating more fresh vegetables and fruit,
using cinnamon on just about everything and drinking a
glass of warm water with a teaspoon of turmeric every
morning before anything else. I also use turmeric in a lot
of my cooking - from scrambled eggs to stews.

I will now continue to eat and cook this way as well as
upping my exercise. My blood sugar has gone down to 5.2,
so I am doubly happy. Now if only the thyroid was that
simple, but that is the next thing to work at.

    Fantastic to read this! I am sorry I am not well informed here... what is the cinnamon good for? I know turmeric is good against diabetis, right?

    Yay! Those results are impressive. Just yesterday I was reading an interesting article about the benefits of turmeric in some Canadian magazine.

Keep up the good work as it is obviously working for you! I hope your doctor was impressed!

    Good going Anna! I like turmeric in eggs too. I also take Crestor but have not noticed results like you have. I think I am just eating too much. More fruits and veggies is probably the answer.
So good to hear you are well my friend.

I keep hearing about tumeric, but I don't know what it is like and I can't eat spicy things so scared to try it. I am on Crestor (well the generic version of it anyway) And I also take cinnamon every day but I thought that was just for blood sugar, Does it work on cholesterol as well? What a bonus ! ! ! !

    Well done Anna! So happy to hear your health is improving . I have always said there is a cure for everything in nature . By the same token .. If you have to take meds then do so until the doctor says you don't need them anymore . Love and Hugs my friend. susie xx

    Well done - I achieved good results for both Cholesterol and Glucose after all the effort in 2012 - hopefully the kgs and cms will follow suit for me, and the thyroid for you
