Enjoyed your article, Susie! Like you, I can’t abide medicine. It doesn’t agree with my system, or I have the opposite reaction I’m supposed to have. I started eating coconut oil for mental sharpness last year, and my doctor was alarmed by a recent blood test that revealed my high cholesterol. However, no statins for me! I googled everything I could find and discovered that high cholesterol in older women (that’s me) helps them live longer and stay healthier.
