I have been advised by a very senior ayurvedic physician stationed at Bangalore to take water boiled with `cuttings' of touch me not plant. It has produced wonderfull results after regualar use for about three months. My LDL Cholostrol level has come down from 200+ levels to around 100. I am advised to pluck the touch me not plant with roots. wash and dry them not in the hot sun, preferably under shadow or rooms below a fan, cut into small pices, lef, stems and roots, store the cut pieces in dark, cold place (in a closed jar in a fridge or so) take about a lable spoon of cut pieces and put them into 2 to 3 litres of water, boil it for about 5 minutes, store the whole liquid with the boiled cut pieces of touch me not plant in a large thermoflask, use a strainer and take out the hot water as frequently as you want to quench the thirst. I have developed a technique of using this hot water to further boil green tea / assamese blacktea and carry it in flasks for my regular drinking. I have observed the positive side of this use of water boiled using cuttings of touch me not plant. .....inserted in public interest by V.J.K. NAIR, Bangalore, India

Cholesterol is necessary for optimal bodily function, being part of the immune system for example. Too low is a risk for cancer. It is necessary to find the underlying cause of abnormal cholesterol levels, rather than targetting cholesterol. Similarly, lowering blood pressure with medication is not a guarantee of good health in and of itself.

Targetting lifestyle changes may be beneficial. Keep carbohydrate intake between 10 and 14 portions per day (1 portion = 10g carbohydrate). uk.sitestat.com/diabetes/we...
