making cholestral

rabbit8April 30, 2006

I went to my doctor last week and stated he thinks my body is makng cholestral. Are there any herbs I can take to remedy this problem? I really need help. Thanks in advance for your advice. I don't want to be placed on medication for long periods of time.

Everyone's bodies make cholesterol. You can try visiting the herbalism forum to see if anyone there knows about herbs for high cholesterol.

We need a little more information. Did he say your cholesterol is high and your body is making too much? Did he recommend medication? Gina is correct, our bodies make cholesterol, but for some it makes too much.

Here's a link to a page that discusses lowering high cholesterol through diet.

Okay, I had my cholestral checked last year and it was 252. I just had it rechecked a week ago but my test result have not come back yet. I'm sure it's up. He told me that since my cholestral is high all the time, that it is making cholestral. I was told by his nurse, that my good cholestral was what saving me.
