I have in the past year found the NT way of eating and much of it makes so much sense to me. However, my mom just got diagnosed with high cholesterol (285) and of course her doc told her no butter, saturated fat, low cholesterol etc.... basicially the American Heart Assn. ideals. This goes in direct contrast with NT and it is all so confusing. My cholesterol is good before adopting any of the NT principals (132) and we now eat organic real butter, eggs, raw milk, meat. I am at a loss as to what to tell her because NT goes so against mainstream nutrition I think it would be hard to defend. It's been drilled into our culture today that low-fat is the gold standard of nutrition and I don't know how to counter that. I have read much of the Weston Price info, but I'm afraid that it would appear biased because of course they support NT. I've also heard of the Cholesterol Myth book but haven't read it yet. I just really don't want her to rely on her doc. and eventually end up on meds. Any help?
