My doctor put me on a cholesterol drug last week, and I asked him if I could try to tackle the issue with diet before starting the drug. He was so concerned with the levels (which I failed to get as we got off topic, and then I forgot until I was leaving) and so skeptical that diet could put a big enough dent in the numbers that he strongly advised that I just take the medication. So I am, but I am determined to get off it as soon as safely possible. To that end, I am beginning 30 days of green smoothies (plus one grilled vegan meal at our company picnic next month). I am hoping between the med and the nutrients I can get the numbers down low enough for my next blood test to stop the meds safely, and continue the healing by just continuing on with raw food.
So, here’s to putting some of the testimonials to the test. Let’s see how much damage can be healed in only a month!
