Have you lowered your cholesterol through lifestyle changes?

I chew my food more, added probiotics and some supplements (CQ10, folic+Vit B complex, Calcium+Magnesium+Zinc) and always avoided sugar (but still eats 3 bites of chocolates every other day. I breath more, watch my body for any signs of distress (skin issues, pains, lack of sleep, mouth health, sleep quality, urine color, others). I have lemons/citrus and herbs (essential oils – tea tree, eucalyptus, lemon grass for gums, skin and other uses).

I avoided pork and bacon and other processed foods and concentrated on whole foods, fish. I shop at farmer’s market, Trader’s joes and Whole Foods Store.

I spend 30min a day at NC.Fit in the bay area for my cross-fit training with a coach (group of 2 or 4 others). I garden during summer with my mom.

I try to have a good sleep, get sunshine, get a foot massage (body included) in the bay area and maintained a non-stressful work environment (although I work 2 jobs and still creating the next best thing in health concierge site with genetic tests, personalized diet, electronic appoint scheduling with docs and more at Coming Soon ).

I dance twice a month. I am happy in knowing that my effort in ensuring the health of my 80 yr old and finances of 5 college students (3 nieces in the Philippines and 2 children in the bay area) are not in vain and it keeps me going every day and face the world with energy and enthusiasm. And that I can share what I know about health in my blog www.clubalthea.com
