for you. It is part of your immune system that helps keep you healthy. Your body makes it as a lubricant to protect your cells. Half your
brain is made from cholesterol. Your liver manufactures it in response
to cells being under stress. When
you don't have enough of the nutrients to repair damage
to your body's
cells, cholesterol will mend them so they don't get any
worse until they can be fully repaired.
If your body were a road with potholes,
cholesterol would be cold patch that kept it over the winter and
Vitamin C and minerals would be the hot asphalt to make the
does cholesterol do to protect your cells?
that reason, when people die of
clogged arteries, the autopsy shows
high cholesterol rates, but the high cholesterol is the *result* of the
clogged arteries and the body trying to *defend* itself (against the
stress of the clogged arteries), not the cause. The clogs themselves
are usually made of plaque, which is usually composed of bacteria,
which are usually forming colonies (the clump). That is why high
cholesterol is called a "risk factor" to atherosclerosis. Not because
there is any actual cholesterol in the arterial clogs, which there
isn't. Be very skeptical when any health claim is made based on "risk
factors" or "correlation". Correlation is not causation.
your cholesterol count is high, a fairly worthless test to take but if
you take it you may as well get some good out of it, it means that
somewhere in your body the cells are under stress. Anything you take
that is healthy will be good for you, as will improving your overall
diet and nutrition, but you especially want to eat foods high in
cholesterol like eggs. Drinking beet kvass, kombucha or kefir will help
reduce any stress your cells are under which will, in turn, reduce the
need for your body to produce as much cholesterol which can lower your
cholesterol levels. When your body needs less cholesterol and gets as
much as it needs from your diet, it won't have to use its own resources
in making cholesterol and will have that much more energy to deal with
maintaining your health.
your body were a road with potholes, cholesterol is like cold patch and
Vitamin C is the hot asphalt. The body uses cholesterol to
up rips and
tears in the walls of body tissues until such time as enough vitamin C
can be obtained to repair the lesions. If your cholesterol is high, it
may indicate your vitamin C is low. See Vitamin
for information on what constitutes "Vitamin C" and making your own
body makes vitamin D out of cholesterol
in the presence of sunshine.
Symptoms of vitamin D deficiency are:
aches, psoriasis, chronic pain, weakness, fatigue.
To add more cholesterol to your diet, eat: eggs, caviar, butter, animal
improve your diet

with high cholesterol live
Eat raw sauerkraut or other lacto-fermented vegetables and pickles with
Have a raw, cultured
dairy product at least once a day.
Drink kombucha tea, kvass or kefir.
Eat a tablespoon of coconut oil every day.
Take vitamin E to help blood circulation
Take a good quality multi-enzyme tablet with meals.
Take lots of naturally-sourced, mixed minerals like
dolomite or clay.

often a side effect of conventional "cholesterol medication". They will
often start getting better within days of discontinuing the
"medication". Some people say that the drugs leech the enzyme co-Q10
out of the body, and recommend supplementing with that.
Some conventional medical practice says to take calcium to lower
cholesterol. I do not recommend this. I do recommend taking a mixed
mineral supplement from natural sources. If you take calcium, you
should always get it from a natural, full-array source that includes
all of calcium's companion minerals, especially magnesium, because a
surplus of calcium can cause a deficiency of magnesium and/or a
build-up of calcium stones in the gallbladder, kidney, ears, arteries
and other places in the body. See Magnesium
for more information on supplementing with minerals.
drugs that are given to lower cholesterol are being implicated in
transient global amnesia, or memory loss, in people who take them.
