Water - proper hydration.
People don't like my answers because they fear what they can't understand. Once you understand the role of water in the body, the problems that develop are easier to deal with because knowing how water is tied to every part of the body is the first step in understanding why, when it's not available in large enough quantities, problems develop.
Instead of giving the body water that it needs, the medical profession prefers to use pharmaceuticals that do little more than managing the problem (temporarily hide the symptoms). Properly treating problems requires correcting the cause - only when the cause is corrected with the problem go away.
With regard to cholesterol, the first thing to know is that blood is 94% water. When you become dehydrated its water volume is reduced by 8%, which causes it to increase its viscosity (it thickens).
This concentrated blood becomes toxic and as it enters the arteries under a shearing pressure, after passing through the lungs (where more water is lost via water vapor), it damages the tissues. To prevent this damage from peeling and causing embolisms that break off and go to the brain, lungs, or other major organs, cholesterol is produced to cover and protect the damage like a waterproof bandage until the body can repair the damage.
The medical profession, however, doesn't promote water - they push "fluids" which are not the same as water, nor do they function as water. They use medications to "treat thirst" - manage the symptoms.
While the medications are effective in what they do, they carry life-threatening side effects that can cause worse damage than the problem they're prescribed for.
The medications are only effective as long as they are active. Once they wear off, the cholesterol comes back. Just "removing" the cholesterol does no good - it's a temporary fix at best. By removing the cholesterol, the damaged tissues are exposed to the same pressurized blood that caused the damage in the first place, triggering the production of more cholesterol.
And an endless cycle is created.
The problem is caused by insufficient water intake and it can only be corrected by drinking water. Once the body is properly hydrated and the blood is back to its natural thickness the cholesterol will no longer be needed; it will dissolve and be flushed out.
If you are currently on medication for cholesterol you should continue taking it until directed by your doctor to do otherwise. The medications won't inhibit the body from fixing itself once it has the means. When the doctor sees that you no longer need the medication, he will adjust or stop it.
It should be noted that cholesterol deposits are only found in the arteries and main vessels that are under higher pressure. Testing for cholesterol is done by drawing a blood sample from a vein - yet there has never been a recorded medical case of cholesterol ever blocking a vein. Venous blood flows much slower than arterial blood and thus, the assumption of cholesterol forming haphazardly is wrong.
There is a reason for everything that functions in the body.

That's not really a question, is it? Are you asking, "What lowers cholesterol?"
Prescription medications, daily exercise, quitting smoking if you smoke, and most important of all, dietary changes that are permanent.
