09-26-2007, 05:03 PM
I have had high cholesterol for at least 20 years. My doctors had me on
medications which I quit taking over 2 years ago.
I had my cholesterol checked last week. It went from 325 2 years ago, to
221 today!!! My triglycerides also are down to 89 (they were almost 200)
I am so excited!!!

Becky, I am excited for you.
I, too, quit taking the cholesterol medication and had a drop from 250 to
200. Will have another test in about 6 months and look forward to being much lower.
Thanks for sharing the good news. Other than change in diet are you doing anything else. I began exercising more as well as diet change. I also took Fish Oil. When I began RAW I stopped the fish oil. It was making my blood pressure too low. That was before RAW. It works! Let's keep it up!

I really can't put my finger on ONE thing I have done.
Eat alot of fruit, and fruit smoothies
Added Tocophrenol to my smoothies
No supplements. Just real food!!

Wow, I am impressed....did you have high cholesterol before you went raw?:rolleyes:

That is great to hear. My cholesterol is 363 and I fought it for some time with medication. Quit that. Didn't resonate well with me. I have been raw for a little over a month and have high hopes that this will help. I have tried everything else

i don't know what my numbers were or are but i know my doctor was shocked to see how much my numbers dropped in a mere 6 months of eating raw foods.
congrats!!! keep up the good eating!

:pMy total cholesterol was 115 after two months 100% raw (no sugar, no salt, not oils, nuts, avocado). It has to be below 120 to reverse heart disease!
