How Beverly and Roy Avoided Cholesterol Lowering Drugs

by Bev
(Pincher Creek, AB)

When my husband Roy’s doctor told him he needed to go on cholesterol lowering drugs, I got onto the internet to look for alternatives. I found lots and began to add ground flax seeds, olive oil and oatmeal porridge to our diet.

It was not an overnight miracle, but six months later the doctor was happy about Roy’s cholesterol and said that he no longer wanted him to take any statins, the drugs for lowering cholesterol.

I am very busy with my B & B and my husband has an accounting business, and I do not want either of us to go on medication that we would be stuck with for the rest of our lives.

Inspiring thank you
by: Margarett Watsica

Thank you for your awesome work! I have been inspired to reduce my medications and get healthy again. I felt that I was just getting old, but that was just not taking charge of my diet and looking after myself better.

Your dr.s reaction to refusing statins
by: Sally Fulton

Did your doctor agree to dropping statins? My experience has been, if you want to see how childish a doctor can be--tell him you aren't going to take statins.

Dr.s have yelled at me (litterly) And become very angry. In the most recent case, he ordered me never to come in the office again! And he wasn't even my dr.--only substituting for my primary that day.

A doctor "knows" he is right because the general standards of care say statins are the only way to prevent heart attacks.

The impression I get is that they must "folllow the crowd" to keep in good standfing with other doctors.

This is more important than considering the patient's point of view.
