In my quest to keep an eye on my cholesterol and what I can do about it, I continue to read health articles and new findings. I am sure that my getting rid of unnecessary medications (Crestor) and picking up Krill Oil (better than Fish Oil) is already helping reverse the dangerous trend that had begun; my bad LDL's raising to a dangerous level, even though the doctor saw it as OK since the Total Cholesterol was lowered. Ugg! In a couple more months I'll have a new blood test done to confirm this but it will take some time for the effects to start balancing out. I'm just glad to start the process of rebuilding my good HDL's to start countering this detrimental process that otherwise might have gone unchecked for -- who knows how long! This is why it's important to temper the doctor's directions with your own research and common sense, sometimes! Even if that means asking for a second or third opinion, or taking some matters into your own hands after you've become educated about it. It's sad but true that doctors are usually "in kahoots" with the drug companies and they're not likely to encourage you to stop taking any med that's gaining them favor or money with them... Yes they mean well, but they're blinded. And usually, to make matters worse, their training and research doesn't teach them to look outside of the pharmaceutical world for cures, because that's where the money is at.
Anyway, back to the purpose for this morning's post...
So I'm learning how which kinds of cooking oil can also contribute to this problem!
Yes, I really like Dr. Mercola's articles: not only do they present his own research and findings, but that of other experts as well. He is continually interviewing others and reporting upon THEIR findings as well. So these articles aren't just one man's thoughts and opinions. Plus, you can Google these topics for yourself and learn what you will, once you know where to start.
