Good Day,

I am becoming increasingly concerned over my Mother's high cholesterol 8.1 (Type A / Teacher / not sure what proportion was HDL / LDL), and have been looking at the protocols. Am I right in assuming that I should be paying particular attention to the pulmonary and cardiovascular lists?

I would like to consider putting her on Red Yeast Rice, though I know that she would also need her to pair that up with Q10, which is an expensive thing to constantly maintain; however, if that's what it takes, I'll do it without hesitation.

Thanks in advance for your help.

How is she doing with her food compliance?

I think the Cardiovascular Protocol would be more appropriate to lower cholesterol than the Pulmonary.  You may also look at the Anti-inflammation, Blood Building, and Liver Support protocols.  Detoxification may also be necessary to allow the body to heal enough to lower the cholesterol levels...

I don't know that I would jump into Red Yeast Rice / CoQ10 expense without trying some other less expensive options.

Good day!  Are you a doctor?  Red Yeast Rice is a statin.  I wouldn't give that to my mother.


My SWAMI diet is a blend of BTD and GTD Explorer, but I'm not totally compliant.  Also I try to choose foods that have a Low Glycemic index.  DW and DD are A+, probably also Explorer.

No, I am not a doctor, though I am available for after dinner speaking.  

On a more serious note, the reason I was considering RYR as a possibility, was through my experience of having worked in health food / supplements a few years back. Some of the contacts and top nutritionists I had the privelidge to meet, did recommend RYR with CoQ10. However, if I can find something more suitable, and ideally affordable for the longer term, then that would indeed be far better.

Thanks for the replies. *Goes back to reading links*.

No, though I have just found where I can buy it. Thanks.


Tom Greenfields blog mentioned Niacin. Can't believe I forgot about that one; I should remember since after taking it years back, both myself and my Mum couldn't leave the house because we looked like a strawberry!

As a Teacher who once had high cholesterol, let me share what's worked for me...It would be
compliance on my diet, exercise, a diet high in fiber such as flax, oat bran (although I'm gluten intolerant
and don't presently eat oatbran)...getting plenty of exercise, no sugar (Dr. D does mention this when
I read the characteristics of a Teacher and the foods that cause them problems).

Does your mom get any exercise?  Is she presently sedentary or overweight?   And do you know if
she's got any other issues like high blood sugar?

Sometimes daily exercise, the right fats, the avoidance of sugar and eating whole foods in their natural
form does wonders.  So would protocols that help to cleanse the body of toxins...

Liver Dysfunction and Cholesterol
Because of the role that your liver plays in regulating lipid levels, some cases of high cholesterol can be attributed to problems with the liver, MayoClinic.com notes. For example, some people have genes that cause their liver to naturally produce more cholesterol, which leads to chronically elevated cholesterol levels. Liver dysfunction can also make it harder for your liver to remove cholesterol from your body, which also contributes to high cholesterol levels.

I would also consider a liver detox.  And maybe take a look at Hepatiguard

I would say she adheres to a pretty good level of compliance, though we've talked it through and naturally, the first step forward would be for her to ramp up the compliance further still (at the moment, we are considering Niacin for her to take).

She is not overweight, and is certainly active and likes walking (we go for brisk walks up hills / roads when the weather is suitable). She recently had her liver, kidneys etc tests back from the doctor, and is well apart from the cholesterol reading (though I remember years back, Patrick Holford saying that homocysteine was of far greater importance than cholesterol).
