|I was diagnosed in June '07 from a May blood test. Doc said it was hereditary and there was no dietary fix to be had. Prescribed Lipitor at $3./day for the rest of my life! I numbly bought the pills but Googled the drug before taking. There is a 5.6% rate of severe muscular degeneration! I never took them out of the wrapper.
Further Googles turned up an array of natural treatments but only one had scientific studies attached to a great deal of anecdotal evidence - FRUIT PECTIN. The study was on pigs and the grapefruit rinds cured them.
5 months later now and all 5 indicators read NORMAL!...whereas all 5 were badly out of whack back in May.
The Cure: Buy liquid fruit pectin, same as for jam and jelly making. I found Certo brand at the Superstore for $3. a box which lasts about 3 weeks. Mix 1 teaspoon with juice. I like veggy juice. Take once a day for the first week and then 3 times per day hence.
Note that since my condition is hereditary I did not attempt to alter my eating habits at all.
Now that I am cured I will drop my intake to 1 teaspoon/day. In Jan'08 I will be tested again to see in the lower maintenance dose is effective.
Good Luck to All,
PS: Turns out that fruit pectin is also a natural apetite suppressant so do not be surprised if you lose weight.
