My friend and her hubby have around 120 total cholesterol. They both take thyroid medication, cholesterol drugs, niacin, diet and exercise daily.

Niacin lowers cholesterol, but has to be done with doctor supervision. Dr. Oz wrote about that in his book too.

Hi Tee. Thanks for the info about Vit. E and cholesterol drugs. I knew you couldn't eat grapfruit when on those drugs but I didn't know that Vit. E worked against them. Have a Happy Holiday. Mary

I didn't know about the vitamin/Lipitor combination not being helpful. I guess I should get Dr.OZ book and read up on it. I am not on meds, but it is good to know and share. Thanks

Sorry you had to go on Lipitor. For those on cholesterol lowering drug, only take a low dose of oily vitamins, like E, etc. since they work against the meds. Dr Oz wrote about this on Oprah's site. When I stopped taking these vitamins with Lipitor, my bad cholesterol decreased 100 points and good cholesterol rose for the first time in 10 years.

Water is very important for us. We may, and I do, require more than the 8 glasses a day. The link goes to a water calculator I use to see what I need for my current weight. Mt requirement has dropped 9 ounces due to weight loss. Yipee!

Great, I was telling my husband just now and he was impressed also. I was at 136 in August and in September after adding 20 minutes walking and by eating a blend of oatmeal and pineaple I lower it to 106. I am going to try the galic pill and started taking Flaxseed Oil gels yesterday.

Peace, Love and Abundance Always,

What a wonderful blessing to hear all that hard work and effort really paid off. Thanks for blessing my day with your story.

Best,emoticon

2 Corinthians 12:9-10

My grace is enough for you, for where there is weakness my power is shown more completely.
Therefore, I have made up my mind to be proud of my weakness, because they mean a deeper experience of the power of Christ. I can even enjoy weakness, insults privations, persecutions and difficulties for Christ's sake for my weakness makes me strong in HIM.
May I always carry a heart of humility and humbleness before Jesus.

Thank you all soo much!! I am really, really psyched. Other than 199 (once) I have never been below 200 in my life (usually a bit higher) so this is quite the achievement for me.

For me, it is inherited (thanks dad!!). I will see if I can ween off the meds and keep doing the rest, but for now, I will bask in the afterglow of my numbers!!

Thanks!!

"The real secret of success is enthusiasm..." Walter P. Chrysler said it, I believe it. That's what I want in my life--to give my imagination a chance, to live with energy and enthusiasm!

Ralph Waldo Emerson said 'Life belongs to the energetic.' But you don't have to be frenetic and hyper--some energy is quiet and steady, like a heartbeat... and that works too! LOL

What terrific numbers!!! emoticon It's great that you just didn't rely on meds but have added all the good-for-you things we've heard about on this team. I hope I get some good results although I had to come off meds (bad side effects); but I'm trying on my own before trying other meds. You should be so proud of yourself. emoticon

Great job! I did natural stuff for a year, and I should get those numbers back in the next day or two. The doc went ahead and put me on Lipitor, and I'll do that for 3 months. I'm hoping for the same result as you. Keep up the good work!

The difference between truth and fiction is that fiction has to make sense.

For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jer. 29:11 (NIV)

Thats great news!!! I've been on lovastatins for about 3 months now, taking fish oil, eating flax everyday and cooking with fresh garlic. I've got to go in a couple weeks to get bloodwork done. Hopefully my numbers will be as good as yours. emoticon

Well, after 3 months on Lovastatin, Omega 3, Flax Seed, Garlic Pills and oatmeal for breakfast, I am happy to report that my total cholesterol is down to 150 for the first time in my life. It dropped almost 100 points.

The rest of my numbers look good too. . WOO HOO!!
