Guidelines for Cholesterol and Recovery
My husband had a heart attack a couple of weeks ago. The cardiologist has put him on different meds, Plavix, metoprolol succinate 100mg, 325 mg aspirin, niacin, robustatin, omeprazole 20 mg. I'm concerned about the blood thinners (plavix) he has some heart damage. He since has quit smoking and has started drinking more water. He was drinking quite a bit of diet pepsi. What would you recommend that we start doing to regain his health. He can't stand the smell of vinegar so I know he won't try that remedy I suggested the cayenne pepper tea, he doesn't like hot food at all. Before his heart attack and for months I started cooking with extra virgin olive oil and coconut oil changed to real butter instead of the margarines. His blood work shows that his bad cholesterol (LDL?) was good at a 78, his good cholesterol (HDL) was very low at a 24. His dr. put him on the niacin to bring up his good cholesterol. Is that what he would take to bring up his good cholesterol. I was reading on the magnesium, if his magnesium and vit D were low would that be a factor in a heart attack? If so, what kind of solution to take for the mag. And D? I also read that one should mix calcium, magnesium and zinc? Should he start on Vit C? I really would like to detox his body to rid of the nicotine and tar from smoking, but with the Dr. meds I'm afraid to have him start more pills. I'm very worried about his health he's still 53 years young. Please reply to this email with specific remedies to help him get on his way to being healthy. God Bless you for all that you do, helping so many people. Thank you.
