from Dr. Conneally:
I’ve had significant success treating any and all of our most threatening health conditions with dietary and lifestyle changes. No drugs.
Whole, fresh, organic, vitamin-and mineral-rich foods—lean meats and poultry, fiber-rich organic fruits and vegetables, unsalted nuts and seeds, legumes, whole grains
Healthy fats like avocado, olive, and sesame oils
Omega-3 essential fatty acids
Celery, garlic, raw cacao, cayenne pepper, and eggs
Avoiding high-sodium foods, fast food, sugar, processed snacks and meals, and trans fats
If you have a hard time getting enough of any nutrients from your diet, you can ensure sufficiency by taking a good quality supplement. And many natural, herbal remedies are especially effective in managing cholesterol. Read on, with delight, about 3 that I highly recommend:
This remarkable citrus fruit has a molecular structure similar to statins, and similarly reduces cholesterol, but without statin-like side effects. I recommend 500 to 1,000 mg of bergamot daily. Be sure you’ve cleared that with your doctor, and don’t discontinue using statins without supervision.
I also recommend bergamot essential oil. It relieves digestive difficulties, heals infectious wounds, repells insects, and more. And it’s a lovely,calming fragrance.
Indian Gooseberry, or Amla
Indian gooseberry, also called amla, is an Ayurvedic powerhouse that hits the sweet spots for cholesterol control:
Reduces LDL cholesterol levels
Increases good cholesterol levels
You can find amla in supplements under the brand name Capros®. Or find these tart green berries and drink blended, strained, Indian gooseberry juice.
The name amla, by the way, comes from the Sanskrit word for “the sustainer.”
Bring it into your life and it will do a wonderful job helping to sustain you.
Look for a supplement with 500 mg Indian Gooseberry and take as directed.
Minimum 7–8 hours sleep
No smoking, moderate alcohol, limited caffeinated and sugary drinks
15–20 minutes daily of direct, vitamin-D producing sunlight, more in northern climes
Water—half an ounce per pound of body weight per day, so at 140 pounds, 70 ounces of water, paced through the day. Easier than it sounds
De-stress with therapy, meditation, yoga, tai chi, qigong, deep breathing, visualization
Exercise—a minimum 10–15 minute walk a day, increasing your time, speed, and distance, or do interval and weight training
