How Can I Get Off Cholesterol Medications?

By Russell Blaylock, M.D.   |   Monday, 03 Jun 2013 09:31 AM

Question: What causes high triglycerides, and what can I do to lower them naturally so that I can get off cholesterol medications?
Dr. Blaylock's Answer:
In the vast majority of cases, high triglycerides are caused by eating too much sugar and/or simple carbohydrates.
Kale and broccoli can help lower cholesterol levels without raising triglycerides. Both should be cooked to destroy a thyroid-suppressing compound within the plants. They can
be steamed for 20 minutes.
