I just went this past week to have my cholesterol checked and I was very,very pleased. Here is the great news about my check up. It went down to 168 from 170 now that does not look like a whole lot. Here is the good news:

HDL (good) went up to 46 up from 41 , LDL (baaddddd) went down to 109 from 117. My doctor is very pleased.
I started at 219 when my first doctor put me on meds. She put me on lovastatin and I do have to say that it did work . It dropped right down to 150. But with any kind of statin drug you have to have your blood drawn every 3 months. My husband did not like the fact that they are looking for damage to the liver. So he wanted me off it. I went to another doctor to help me get off it the natural way. She put me on Super EPA and DHA 3 a day along with an enzyme called lipidenze. It did go back up to 170. I told her that that was not good enough so we added another 3 Epa and Dha, also I added 1oz of NingXia Red. It moved a little. I told her my goal was to bring up my HDL and really lower my LDL.

So when Young Living brought out OmegaGize ( in October) and the Longievity I dropped all the other stuff and took 3 OmegaGizes , one Longievity and one ounce of NingXia Red. She also told me she wanted me to get at least 30 gm of fiber a day. So I changed to a high fiber cereal and I take 2 fiber choice a day. I also added other fiber foods to my diet. This is what I have done sense October (for three months). Even though the EPA and DHA is lower in the OmegaGize I believe it is the Young Living oils that have helped to change the ratio between the HDL and LDL. I can not wait for another three months to see if it changes even more. I believe she will move me to a 6 month blood draw because I am doing sooo good!! I think I have her almost signed up. She is very interested in the way this has all worked out.

Because of its gastric acid neutralizing effect and its support of normal peristalsis, it has also been used for relief of heartburn and gastroesophageal reflux (GERD). D-limonene has well-established chemopreventive activity against many types of cancer. Evidence from a phase I clinical trial demonstrated a partial response in a patient with breast cancer and stable disease for more than six months in three patients with colorectal cancer."Link
