Jim's Cholesterol Success Story

Jim lowered his cholesterol through diet and lifestyle
"The results were impressive. Within six weeks my total cholesterol dropped about 25%, to 160, and my LDL dropped over 20%. So overall, Jitka reduced my cholesterol by over 100 points and my LDL by well over 50."

Extreme Cholesterol Reduction Through Diet and Lifestyle Changes

I had always had high cholesterol, at least partially for genetic reasons. Under Jitka's advice, I went vegan several years ago, and this change dropped my total cholesterol by over 60 points. Even as a vegan with a healthy lifestyle, however, my cholesterol levels still remained stubbornly high, fluctuating in the 200-220 range with LDL 120-140. My doctors, citing my genetic issues, wanted to put me on statins and really offered no other potential solutions. I did not want statins.

So I turned to Jitka again because I wanted to see if I could make any additional dietary adjustments that could further reduce my cholesterol without resorting to the use of pharmaceuticals.

Jitka took an extremely thorough approach to examining my situation and coming up with a fully natural, pharmaceutical-free approach to resolving it. Doctors tend to focus on a small set of numbers, whereas she thoroughly analyzed my diet and lifestyle. Even though my lifestyle was already quite healthy, she came up with several recommendations on how to improve my heart health.


Jitka's recommendations were largely based on the methods of Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, who has helped patients overcome heart disease through lifestyle changes, especially dietary changes, for many years. In my case, it was necessary to: - Completely eliminate all oils from my diet - Drastically reduce my intake of all fats -- especially in the form of nuts and avocado - Exclude processed foods such as wheat flour and white rice - Increase the regularity with which I consumed healthy vegetables, especially leafy greens - I also reduced alcohol intake and cut out almost all of the vegan desserts and treats that I had been consuming, which were vegan but not healthy.

The results were impressive. Within six weeks my total cholesterol dropped about 25%, to 160, and my LDL dropped over 20%. So overall, Jitka reduced my cholesterol by over 100 points and my LDL by well over 50. My numbers are now well within what is considered "normal" and not at all high risk. Furthermore, I am fairly certain that my numbers have continued to drop, as the initial results were after only six weeks, which is a fairly short time period. I plan to continue with the diet that Jitka recommended for the rest of my long, healthy life!
