Hi all, my other half has been diagnosed with Coronary Heart Disease and is due to go into hospital soon for an investigative operation to see if he needs a stent or bypass. He has been prescribed statins to lower his cholesterol, which he is reluctantly taking and getting some side effects, which the Doctor said he would experience. We know statins have a very bad reputation and after the operation, we want to go the 'natural' way to help him reduce his cholesterol and high blood pressure, so I've joined this group to start learning more. We know that diet and lifestyle needs to be adjusted, which we are doing, but we are curious on what natural remedies are out there. I appreciate that there will be some responses to my message, and please know that I do appreciate them, but just as a heads up, I'm not always online to respond immediately ;-). Thanks for reading and any advice sent our way.
