Cholesterol Down

Cholesterol Down by Dr. Janet Brill was published in 2007. It is humbling to see how the straightforward plan and miracle foods stated in the book still continue to help people struggling with high cholesterol.

Cholesterol Down book presents a safe and effective alternative way to statin drugs to bring cholesterol down. It includes a daily checklist, weekly menus, heart-healthy recipes and more that helps reduce cholesterol by as much as 47% in just 4 weeks.

Dr. Janet received a highly positive review from Amy Love stating how the book has helped her get rid of her high cholesterol worries.

Review of Cholesterol Down by Amy Love

“Hello Janet! Well I discovered your book online last December while researching how to lower my cholesterol without statins. Prior to this my cholesterol has always been on the “highish” side but doctors were never concerned as I was physically fit, had low blood pressure and was not overweight.

Anyway, after knee surgery I had gained a bit of weight and wasn’t able to exercise so on Nov. 4, 2014 I decided to change my diet and eliminate sugar, white flour and processed foods. This was difficult since Doritos and sugar in my coffee seemed to be essential to my taste buds! Well, I did a great job with this diet but was eating lots of eggs, cheese and some meats.

When I went to get my cholesterol checked after six weeks, I was horrified to learn that I had made it much worse. The doctor wanted me to start Lipitor (the 3rd level) immediately since my total cholesterol was 272 and LDL was 188!!!! 🙁 To say I was discouraged is an understatement. I did not want to take medication for the rest of my life and was afraid of side effects of Lipitor.

That day I found your book online and ordered it. I started your diet even before Amazon delivered my copy of the book. I went back to my doctor after about 5 weeks on the Cholesterol Down plan. He discouraged me further by insisting that there was nothing I could do to lower my cholesterol on my own, especially since I had a healthy diet already.

Nevertheless, I asked him what number would he like to see, in order for me to continue on my diet and exercise program without Lipitor. He told me if I lowered my LDL by 28 points, he would give me the green light to continue without medication. BUT he made it clear that he thought this would be impossible!!

To make a long story short, my numbers decreased dramatically! Total was 220 and LDL 142! The doctor was surprised and said that I had significantly lowered my numbers and to continue with my diet and exercise! I was extremely happy to say the least.

I wanted you to know how grateful I am for your book. Since last January when I got those amazing results, I have recommended your book to many people as I have told my story. Now I get emails and texts often asking what the name of your book is and I am happy to recommend it!! Thank you!!! Can’t wait to go back at the end of April to get my newest levels!! I am a work in progress! I certainly hope you see this email!”

Thank you,
Amy Love.

“Got Great Results” with Cholesterol Down Book

Low Cholesterol

Cholesterol Down

Here is a testimonial by M. Bickhart from Phoenixville on how Cholesterol Down book has helped him lower his cholesterol.

“This was on my Christmas list. Had my blood work done Sept, 2013, results as followed:

Total Cholesterol-231
HDL-78
LDL-131
Triglycerides-108

Read the book, made a list of the 10 guidelines, taped it to the wall near the kitchen sink, tweaked it to my liking.

  • Ate steel cut oatmeal with chia or flaxseed, wheat germ, oat bran most mornings. (I made a week’s supply at once and refrigerated, then reheated adding some kind of berries or bananas.)
  • Took 2 tabs of Cholest-off daily (phytosterols).
  • Took 2 tabs of organic Flaxseed oil daily.
  • Ate almonds or an apple (or both) as a snack sometime during the day.
  • Ate more spinach and mushrooms and garlic and veggies,(beets and cabbage clean the system).
  • Ate more beans (not so great with that).
  • Ate much less meat and dairy (which I had previously done, with little positive results).
  • Drank a soy latte or some kind of soy shake (non GMO)..delicious!!!(not every day).
  • Continued eating the dark chocolate I have always indulged in.
  • Took a garlic supplement (not every day).
  • Took “Super Thisilyn” for 3 weeks (figured it would help my liver recover from whatever damage I have done).I added this little “secret weapon” of my own.
  • For the life of me, could not tolerate the psyllium husk.
  • Continued to exercise, (either walk or zumba or pilates) about 3 times a week.

Just received my new lab results, drawn March 2014 (6 months later), as followed:

Total Cholesterol-186
HDL-78
LDL-94
Triglycerides-69

My 60th birthday is in 2 months. I have a terrible family history. My father died from a stroke and early heart disease. My brother had a severe stroke at age 54. My mother has been on all the “Big Pharma” meds since she was 50 and tries to persuade me to “just take them”.

My labs have NEVER been so good!!!

Thank you Dr. Janet Brill!! Thank you for taking the time to study and publish this information for our benefit… I believe your approach with recognizing the different mechanisms of our bodily functions is the ticket.

May be the best Christmas gift ever!!! My best to anyone reading this…tweak it to your liking and you won’t have to stress anymore over blood tests…Amazing!”
