7 Steps that will give you the best chance of living statin free.
Start with your doctor. Review your desire to get off statins Without changing
the way you live there’s no solid reason to get off your statin medication.
Get serious about food. Part of this plan must be eating a plant-based diet.
Depending on your particular profile, I
suggest either the Dean Ornish heart-reversal diet or the South Beach Diet. If you have known heart disease, the Ornish diet is better because it most effectively cleanses the system of excess fat. The South Beach Diet is usually for those with risk factors but no known heart disease. This diet allows more latitude and can still get a person to the recommended targets.
Lose weight for good, maintain your ideal body weight.
One way to judge your ideal body weight is via body mass index (BMI) It should be under 25 Many health clubs have simple handheld devices that provide a BMI reading.
Get moving on a daily basis. You need to start exercising five days a week for one hour
per day. I recommend the PEAK 8 routine google it you only do this 3 x per week at 20 minutes each time the other days you can just walk at least 10,000 steps per day you can buy a pedometer.
You must get plenty of sleep Not just eight hours a night, but eight to 10 hours on a regular basis. Sleep is the body’s main way of dealing with stress. lack of sleep results in the liver pumping out excess cholesterol!
it’s important to take additional measures to reduce stress. Practice meditation!
Remember, there are only two ways to reduce your cholesterol: Stop the production of cholesterol in your liver, or stop its absorption in the small intestine.
supplements in your diet can help reduce cholesterol, but most people have to be at
their targets, eating right, and exercising before supplements can help them stay there.
One supplement works through the liver just like a statin  because it is a statin, a natural
one. Mevastatin is produced naturally by red rice yeast. a good brand is Nature's Plus Herbal Actives Red Yeast Rice Extended Release  600 mg.
Omega-3 fatty acids from fish oil and vitamin B3 (niacin), remain the champions of the
supplements. Both fish oil and niacin boost HDL, plump up LDL particles, and reduce inflammation I suggest Krill Oil Just look that it has total Phospholipids 420, total MG per serving 300, at least 160 mg EPA  and 90 mg DHA and 1 1/2 mg of Astaxanthin. you could have to take 2 pills to get the total  mentioned above even if the bottle says to take 1 per day.
Organic grape juice, apples, and other foods that contain pectin help eliminate cholesterol
through the gut. Garlic has a mild effect as well. A glass of red wine a day, because it contains resveratrol, an antioxidant, also helps maintain heart health.
If you try this speak to your doctor first.

Triglycerides are resolved through diet, not supplementation.  Supplementation can help mediate the damage caused by previous intake, but the best thing to do is stop eating foods that contain them.  The most common foods are hydrogenated vegetable oils.  These are becoming less common in foods now, but always check, and don't eat anything that contains them.  This is different than LDL cholesterol, which the above info mostly deals with.  Raising HDL is a good protective for high LDL cholesterol, and antioxidants that affect the blood vessels will help protect from the effects of triglycerides, but again, the best way to lower them is to not ingest them in the first place.

Here is a natural way to control your HDL and LDL. The effect is gradual, so allow months. When you notice the benefit, in your test result, let me know, so that others can help themselves.
Build up your timing gradually.If you feel tired or dizzy, stop and resume after one minute.
Kapalbhati pranayam -(Do it before eating) Push air forcefully out through the nose about once per second. Stomach will itself go in(contract in). The breathing in(through the nose) will happen automatically. Establish a rhythm and do for 20 to 30 minutes twice a day. Children under 15 years – do 5 to 10 minutes twice a day.
Not for pregnant women. Seriously ill people do it gently.
Anulom Vilom pranayam –
Close your right nostril with thumb and deep breath-in through left nostril  
then – close left nostril with two fingers and breath-out through right nostril  
then -keeping the left nostril closed  deep breath-in through right nostril
then - close your right nostril with thumb and breath-out through left nostril.
This is one cycle of anulom vilom.
Repeat this cycle for 15 to 30  minutes twice a day.
Children under 15 years – do 5 to 10 minutes twice a day.
You can do this before breakfast/lunch/dinner or before bedtime or in bed.Remember to take deep long breaths into the lungs.You can do this while sitting on floor or chair or lying in bed.

Bhramri Pranayam -Close eyes. Close ears with thumb, index finger on forehead, and rest three fingers on base of nose touching eyes. Breathe in through nose. And now breathe out through nose while humming like a bee.
Duration : 5 to 21  times.

Do it and reap the benefit.
