    MY GP uses complementary medicines as well as pharmaceuticals and I have never felt healthier. Over the last 2 years I have lost weight, reduced my blood pressure, lowered my LDL cholesterol to 1.6, total 3.4, and improved liver and kidney function. If you can find a GP like mine you too will benefit from carefully balanced supplements together with a few other drugs.

    Leave out the fattening olive oil. You do not need all this to add fiber just eat more veg and fruit.

    Have to disagree with you, musicveg. Our systems need good fats and oils and 1/4 cup of olive oil sounds about right to me.
