cholesterol

Posted by Ellen on January 22, 1999 at 14:47:32:

Hi. I'm a 45 year old woman with high cholesterol--253. I've been on a low-fat diet for almost two years, but my cholesterol tests always run above 240. That is the only number the doctor gives me. What can I do to lower my levels? Also, in your opinion, is it a good idea to run the elimination diet before starting a whole food diet?

Ellen,

The Elimination diet can only help you. First you will find out how much better you can feel after 4-5 days on the Elimination diet.

Second, you will get an important indication of your inherited metabolism during the elimination diet.

Once you move into your proper metabolic diet you will see your cholesterol numbers normalize within 3 months. Your weight will normalize and you will look and feel younger than what you do right now.

The least important thing that will happen is that your physician will be amazed -- but of course not enough to take sufficient time to understand the logic behind what you've done.

Dear Ellen,

My guess is that what you call a "low fat diet" is what your ignorant allopathic doc told you.

Unless you get to the level of "less than 10% of your dietary caloric intake as fat" you are NOT on a therapeutic diet that will resolve this problem. Read anything by Dr Pritikin about that (Go to your library.).

Next, go to the homepage of this 'site and read about the essential oils. These are required for normal metabolism of fats and more than 80% of the US public are now deficient in these fats. Within 3 months of taking the oils as recommended (100% safe) your cholesterol would likely be normal. What do you have to lose by trying?

THEN, as your cholesterol becomes normal, I hope you will share your experiences with the BB participants. The conventional medical monopoly makes billions treating this condition while ignoring the simple and inexpensive solutions to it and others deserve to know about it.

Walt,

Of course her ignorant allopathic doc might be causing her cholesterol to go up with the suggested low fat diet.

I was over at Kirk Morgan's office last week as he called with some computer problems. He had an old DOS software called HEALTH RISK ASSESSMENT and wanted to know why it wasn't running right on his Windows 95 network. After tinkering around with it a bit I did get it run and we entered the data from a couple of his patients. Basically you enter all sorts of stuff including marital status, whether you use a seat belt, smoke, drink, ect. Then you enter some blood work values and it spits out how long you're going to live. Then it gives a series of things that you can do to extend your life.

Dr. Morgan said that this software and it's output were one of his most effective practice tools. People can relate to the impact of their actions on their lifespan. They can carry the sheet home with them as tangible evidence.

Prominent on this list was the low fat diet. I took pause because I knew that Dr. Morgan wants more than anything to do the best he can for his patients and that the dietary recommendations that he was handing out to his patients were severely flawed.

Robert:

Several terrific points you made!:

1) That the suggested low fat diet caused more stress/damage to the person than it helped cholesteral-wise :-)

2) Dr. Morgan's DOS software. Anything that ran under DOS, is SO OLD! that it ought to be revisited in the light of today's knowledge/understanding. In fact, I believe I saw that software, or one very similar, that ran back on the CPM operating system. Can you say Dinosaur!? If so, then it is giving out Ancient advice.

Just because his software runs on a computer and gives a printout that the patient can take home is no promise that it gives the right medical advice for that particular patient today. You did well to take pause, but you did not indicate what else you did (-: or you might have done :-) about it to help your Doctor friend help his patients even more than he is.

Step forward now to the very late 20th Century!

Jim,

I didn't indicate what else I did because I did nothing. I knew better.

Perhaps soon I'll be able to give him a copy of my book.

Perhaps later we can make up a new Health Risk Appraisal software that is more meaningful with what we know -- today....
