I guess this cholesterol issue is a work in progress. After stopping the Red Yeast Rice and going through the first remedies in the Biotherapeutic Drainage system, the results were not good. My total cholesterol was back up to 250 (from 183). The systems that the first dosages concentrated on were liver and kidneys. So, my naturopath ordered another set of three remedies, these concentrating on the heart and arteries. This makes more sense to me. She also had me order a supplement called Cholest Solutions. It has the usual cholesterol lowering ingredients such as, fish oil, niacin, phytosterols, garlic and inositol. So, that was a bit disappointing. I hope this next round goes better.
Other than the health issue, nothing out of the ordinary is going on in the daily life arena. The winter was filled with work and exercise and the daily struggle with being compliant. I’m still battling that Christmas pound. Hubby and I went out to the driving range last week. It was the first time I had lifted a club since October. What a cold weather sissy I am! The ‘season’ starts this next Tuesday. The weather report says it will be sunny and in the mid 50’s. So, we’ll see how it goes.
The barbershop chorus is madly getting ready for annual competition at the end of the month. That gives me four weeks of limited temptations in the food department. Maybe I can knock a couple o’ pounds off between now and then. YES!!
