My friend Linda emailed me after reading on my blog that I've once again stopped taking the statin drug and shared the following:
My friend who lives in New Hampshire is a nurse who was diagnosed with high cholesterol. Her friend suggested that instead of taking any of the statins she try taking three whole yellow peas daily. Her friend said that the same chemical as found in the statins was in the peas. So she left the drugs on the shelf and started taking the peas. When she returned to the doc to have her levels checked a few months later the doc was please to report that her numbers where back within the safe range.
Wouldn't that be totally amazing if it works? I'm off to find a supply of yellow peas!!!
