Cholesterol lowering medications can be very problematic, especially in CFS/FMS patients, depleting coenzyme Q10 and triggering or aggravating muscle pain. As an alternative, the following herbal combination treatment is often very effective — without the side effects:
- Inositol Hexaniacinate
- Policosanol 2
- Deodorized Garlic
These can be taken individually or found in combination. They can also be taken along with cholesterol lowering medications. Give these herbals 6 weeks to work. In addition, add oats to your diet by eating oatmeal or a cereal such as Life or Cheerios, as they can help lower cholesterol as well.
