Anastasia has been an internationally active research scientist and professor for nearly 40 years. Her 50-plus original research articles and book chapters appear in top journals and periodicals that are housed in libraries all over the world. Armed with her doctorate in chemistry and her research experience, she solved several of her own health crises without resorting to side-effect-laden medication. After wading through the plethora of anecdotal evidence and misinformation, she found that much of the advice is ineffectual. Getting to the truth required reading original reports and testing first herself and then reporting this to others, many of who also got the relief they needed. The methods work. She originally reported the results in a series of articles and has now written her first books: Get Rid of Bad Cholesterol, Get Rid of Bad Cholesterol Guide, and 50 Tips for Getting and Staying Healthy While Super Busy. Her health program is a holistic, five-step plan, including more than just diet but also lifestyle habits that are powerful for promoting good health, from youth to middle age to retirement and beyond. The program serves to not only lower cholesterol but also helps lower blood pressure, burn off body fat, improve brain function, and improve overall health and vitality. She teaches you how to take control of your health without spending all day cooking or exercising. She lives the plan, fitting it into her full and busy life, both at home and while on the road. Prof. Chopelas received her MS from Caltech and her Ph.D. from UCLA. She has worked in all venues for scientists, private industry, research institutes, universities, and is now owner of Embrace Your Vitality. She speaks two languages fluently: Greek from her heritage and German from her 13-year residence in Germany. She loves to draw, paint and take photographs. You’ll find her artwork and photos on her websites www.embraceyourvitality.com and www.getridofbadcholesterol.com.
