Elisha :)

There is a clan in Italy that is going to save us from heart disease. I am sure that you have heard the report of the large extended family that are all consuming fats, are overweight and do not exercise. NONE get heart disease.

They found a super HDL in these people. I think it is called Apo Millano, or Apo-1 Millano...I used to know. This is the shame; control of this research to develop the synthetic HDL is being "controlled" by one company, somehow. This sounds like a dark thing and it is.

This "super HDL" can be injected intravenously and will remove arterial plaque. It is being tested as we speak, but all is hush hush. The Cleveland Clinic is even doing clinical trial work I think. You have to be a member of the CIA to get info.

Imagine the Trillions of dollars at stake......

No I have never heard of that RJ...interesting.  Funny thing is that my great-grandmother who came over here from Italy (small town near Rome, Terni) never had a health problem in her life.  Not even a cold.  She used to hang sausages in her basement...lol! but she was overweight and cooked all those very fattening dishes all the time that we only make now on special occasions for that reason alone.  She didn’t get much exercise, just walking to the corner market and to her church, which was 2 blocks away.  She used to say that garlic cured everything...maybe it does? tongue

Krash,

It is water soluble fiber made from citrus pectin and guar gum. I'm currently using it. You must drink it 3 times per day. Apparently, there is some actual research that backs up the product's claims.

My total cholesterol was down a few points on my last blood test. My triglycerides were way down, almost 200 points, to almost normal. However, my HDL is still low and my LDL is still a little high.

However, I am 1) a smoker 2) lax in my exercise & 3) a newly diagnosed T2 diabetic & 4) I had only been taking ProFibe a month before my test.

I have been exercising more, I am getting my BG levels under control, so I expect my numbers to be better on my next blood test. Of course, I also have plans to quit smoking.


You may also want to consider Niacin. There is solid clinical evidence for Niacin, but I believe you need to take a fairly large dose for it to be effective; and there are side effects, so do a lot of research on that product if you decide to go that route.

Unfortunately, Niacin can raise blood sugar, so it's not an option for me.

Santoz, I have had to edit your post as it violates forum rules and guidelines #4 of no advertising or spamming.  Please become familiar with the forum rules before posting.  Thank you ~ Elisha http://www.healingwell.com/community/default.aspx?f=46&m=106997

:-)  I JUST STOPPED THE NIASPAN BECAUSE I HAVE ALLERGIC REACTIONS ON ALL NIACIN.  ALSO FYI NIACIN CAN RAISE YOUR TRI'S AND LOWER YOUR HDL SOME, HIGH PRICE TO LOWER THE LDL. I STARTED EATING GRAPEFUIT EVERY MORNING WILL LET YOU KNOW IF THAT IS OF ANY BENEFIT DO  WN THE ROAD.      HEY ALDO, I HAVE SEEN THAT INFO ON THE ITALIAN FAMILY ON 60 MINUTES, IS IT POSSIBLE TO GET INVOLVED IN A TRIAL IN ITALY?

Hi Elisha,

 

I understand editing my signature URL; that was my bad.  I apologize.

 

However, I have no interest (monetary or otherwise) in ProFibe, whose link I posted in the body of my thread. 

 

As per your stated rules:

 

"Links to helpful web sites (commercial or otherwise) are allowed when they are posted by someone without any "vested interest" AND whose purpose is NOT to solicit, advertise, promote, fundraise, etc."

 

I only put the link to the ProFibe site to help the original poster and other readers, so I do not believe those links needed to be edited (assuming I’m understand the rules correctly).

Hi Santoz, I’m sorry but I didn’t edit your signature...perhaps Admin did?  I don’t know...

In regards to the Profibe, with your post being the first one you had made on this forum, then posting that link there really was no way for me to assess if you had a "vested interest" in it or not.  I apologize if I assumed wrong however, I would rather error on the side of caution than not.  We do get a lot of Spammers here and I have to be especially vigilant regarding that.  Please except my apology and continue to post.  This is a great site for information and support.

Thank you :-)

Elisha

Hey Dream :)

I don't know about how to get into the trial. I do know that the Cleveland Clinic is/was involved. It is all so mysterious!!! If I run upon something, I will let you know.

I also watched a webcast of a doctor who was injecting HDL into a CAD patient, more than a year ago. The patient said his blockages had been removed. I thought that this "stuff" would soon be available for all. What happened? Where did it go???? Was the patent bought and buried? (sinister music now)

Years ago, I took prescription Niaspan, 2000mg. I woke about 3 am and I thought the bed was on fire! I was experiencing the niacin flush. I thought I was experiencing spontaneous human combustion, ha ha ha.

I forgot why I don't take niacin, until yesterday....I read the post above about niacin and tried 500mg. I didn't flush, but it made me sick. Someone told me once that their daughter could not take it because it made her sick. I had been taking it for awhile (OTC) and had been feeling worse than normal. I stopped the niacin and immediately sterted to feel better.

I ordered a case of Red Yeast Rice (RYR) about a year ago. This is the main ingredient in one of the statins. I forget which one. RYR carries the same warnings as statins and can be as dangerous. It is also not regulated by the FDA, or it wasn't the last time I checked because it is considered a supplement. I had the same adverse reactions to RYR, as I have had to all the statins.

I will see what I can find out about the APO-1 Milano.

Good day to all, and I hope all are well (Hi Delta) :)
