The Basics Series Prelude

Hello everyone, I wanted to make an announcement about a new project I have been dedicating a considerable amount of time to recently. Regular readers will no doubt recall my alluding to this in a recent comment I made.

Firstly, the project is still on. However, I do feel that it is necessary to briefly address an inquiry that was sent directly to me (not to be confused with the "Question Of The Week" feature). An anonymous commentator asked me for a "layman's view" on healthy living and alternative medicine.

 I referred them to some of my previous articles that I have linked to on marsupialmind blog. This, however, was unsatisfactory in answering the question posed (for which I sincerely apologize). So, I have decided to create a "back-to-the-basics" series of postings I am titling "The Basics Series". These upcoming posts will be released at least once a week for the next few weeks.

Please keep in mind, this is not just for people unfamiliar with the central themes I have established here, but also for any regular readers that may have a few basic questions as well. This will be a vital series for anyone that has an interest in taking authority over their health. I highly recommend signing up for the KurtMIND  RSS feed on this one so that you do not miss any of it.

You've gotta start somewhere...
So with that I would like to sincerely thank everyone that regularly reads marsupialmind blog, all the Google+ referrals, & word of mouth recommendations. I want to especially thank the following commentators for helping to keep it all going: germayn, 2much2much, kathydobbs, Janina Odell, Juana Rodriguez, to EVERYONE that +1'd (plus one'd) my posts, and last but not least my "Anonymous" family.

Thanks for the KUDOS, Kurt! I can hardly wait for this series to start. BTW, keep an eye out for spammers. I think a couple of them may have commented here.

Thank you once again for commenting 2much2much!

I am also VERY excited about this new series I am going to unveil for you. To some veteran health enthusiasts, it will seem like nothing new.

However, this series is meant to provide a starting point for some not so familiar with healthy living. I feel it will be a good thing for everyone.

Thanks for the heads up regarding spam, I plan on using more of my administrative tools to ensure that all comments are just that ...comments.

Thanks again for commenting!

Thank you for commenting Janina!

I am glad you are anticipating this series and I hope to provide you and your spouse with a new level of insight on alternative health.

Thanks again for your comment!

5 Simple Ways To Lower Cholesterol

You can easily lower your bad cholesterol levels without drugs by following simple steps that will not only change your cholesterol levels, but also improve your health today and for the long haul.

We often use prescription drugs in hopes that they will miraculously cure our ailments. Cholesterol-lowering drugs do tend to work, but there are short and long term side effects to consider such as: drug dependency, tangential organ damage, and possible fatal consequences.

Eventually, high cholesterol can lead to severe damage to the heart and arteries, not the least of which are atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries), stroke or cardiac arrest. 

I have listed 5 simple ways you can realistically lower your cholesterol without prescription medication.

Zero Cost Weight Loss

"If it's for free, its for me."                                  --A good friend of mine
Low cost is great, but free is always better....

Weight loss plans can become very expensive when you consider all of the diet aids and techniques you may have to utilize to reach your goals. 

Today's economy almost precludes you from aggressively pursuing an effective weight loss program due to the anticipated expense involved.
