Cholesterol Down

My cholesterol levels were high and my cardiologist prescribed statins. I had heard of the many side effects of statins and did not want to go that route.

So I decided to consult with my acupuncturist, aromatherapist and herbalist in getting my total cholesterol levels down.

There are so many proven ways to lowering your LDL levels.

Getting started on lowering my levels, I first did a blood test to have a baseline of my cholesterol levels. And, included my doctor's supervision of checking my levels every three months.

But, first do you know what is cholesterol and that you cannot live without it.

Your body naturally makes it. So raising your good "HDL" cholesterol is very important.

I started using Aroma Life essential oil, recommended by my acupuncturist, three times daily.

Then I was introduced to aromatherapy. I learned that just the inhalation of specific scents impacts the limbic system that helps to regulate emotions and hormone secretion.

You know that high blood pressure and cholesterol are related to emotions and hormones

Then my herbalist instructed me to drink Artichoke leaves tea, you can purchase here, that were proven effective at lowering LDL cholesterol and boosting HDL cholesterol. These leaves can be made into tea, taken as a power or capsule, or ingested as an essential oil.

Recipe - Easy Barbecue Chicken

Rosemary Chicken


I love the smoky aroma and flavor of barbecue chicken cooked over an open fire and this is the season for outdoor cooking.

For the best flavor marinate the chicken at least 3 hours before you barbecue.


  • 4 pieces of quartered chicken

  • 1/2 cup olive oil

  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped

  • 2 teaspoon dry rosemary

  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped parsley

  • 2 tablespoon lemon juice

  • Kosher salt to taste, optional

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

Rinse chicken and pat dry. In a large bowl combine oil, rosemary, parsley, garlic, lemon juice an pepper.

Add chicken to marinate in bowl turning pieces over until completely coated.

Cover and refrigerate for at least 3 hours or even overnight, turning occasionally.

Start your barbecue fire going, place chicken skin side up on grill.

Cook turning and basting with marinade until meat near thighbone is no longer pink when slashed, approximately 40 to 50 minutes.

Makes 4 servings.

Serve with a salad or some delicious rice and peas.
