    If I were asked to give what I consider the single most useful bit of advice for all humanity, it would be this:  

    Expect trouble as an inevitable part of life, and when it comes, hold your head high.

    Look it squarely in the eye, and say,   

    “I will be bigger than you. You cannot defeat me."

    ~Ann Landers

    Does Flaxseed Lower Cholesterol? How long does it take for cholesterol to come down? -a.p.
    ********Yes! Flaxseed can help lower cholesterol. Here is why:
    1) Omega 3 oil
    -Omega 3 can dramatically reduce elevated bad cholesterol levels and also reduce the plaque buildup in the blood.
    2) Fiber
    -Fiber cleanses the digestive system, intestines and colon. If you are not having a bowel movement every 1-2 days, your body begins reabsorbing cholesterol. Keep things moving and keep your cholesterol down!
    3) Lignans
    -Research has shown that flaxseed helps decrease plasma cholesterol. This means that flaxseed can help decrease the risk of coronary artery disease and atherosclerosis.

    **********This is a very important question and one that can cause a lot of discomfort. Most people are eating less then half the amount of fiber they need! This means that when you first start eating fiber, you have to allow your body to get used to extra fiber...
