Re: Seeking Herbal Remedies for blood pressure/cholesterol
In my opinion, fiber is the *best, best* thing to add to your diet for high cholesterol. The easiest way to get enough is try to have a serving of beans at lunch and at dinner. However, fiber supplements are okay, too. The best one in my opinion (and it tastes good, too) is Super Seed by Garden of Life. Another easy way to get it is to eat a hot cereal made from flax seed in the morning (usually these are available in the low carb section of the grocery or health food store).
For lowering blood pressure, there is something called the water cure, you can do a search for it. It uses water and unrefined ocean salt. I know it sounds counter-intuitive to use the salt, but it has worked for lots of people, me included. It's just about the easiest cure there is in the world, too.
