Control your HIGH Cholestrol with Homeopathy

Control your HIGH Cholestrol with Homeopathy

According to a growing number of medical researchers, scientists and medical doctors, the cholesterol-heart disease hypothesis (high cholesterol and triglycerides being key risk factors in heart disease) is one of the biggest scams in the history of medicine. Saturated fats and cholesterol are actually essential to good health and maintaining a strong immune system. Furthermore, there is no tangible evidence that high cholesterol contributes to heart disease.

A consistently high level of “bad” cholesterol in the blood is indicative of an underlying health problem.  Rather than fighting to keep your blood cholesterol levels low, you need to address the root cause. This root cause could be a stressful job, depression, anxiety, suppressed anger, or something physical such as chronic pain, inflammation, indigestion or insomnia.

Homeopathy is one modality that can help heal deep emotional wounds as well as eliminate chronic physical ailments. Once the underlying stressors have been eliminated, the body will begin to regulate and maintain healthy levels of blood cholesterol. - See more at: http://www.vitalitymagazine.com/article/homeopathic-medicine-to-restore-healthy-cholesterol-levels/#sthash.8iiFptNh.dpuf

Cholesterol is a fatty substance found in the blood, cells, and tissues of the organism. It is produced by the liver and found throughout the body. The body uses cholesterol to make vitamin D and certain hormones such as cortisone, and estrogen.
There are two types of cholesterol: Low-density lipoproteins (LDL) and high-density lipoproteins (HDL).
Low-density lipoprotein is known as the "bad" cholesterol, it causes the formation of plaque deposits in the walls of the arteries.
High-density lipoprotein is the "good" cholesterol, it removes LDL cholesterol from the bloodstream.
Cholesterol metabolism originates from two sources: Exogenous (made by the liver) and endogenous (found in food).
High blood cholesterol is the excessive level of cholesterol in the blood. When there is a higher than normal amount of cholesterol in the bloodstream, it can cause a condition, known as atherosclerosis, where deposits of fatty material piles-up in the inside wall of an artery and restricts the flow of blood in that portion of the blood vessel. A blockage in the blood vessel that supplies blood to the heart will lead to a heart attack. If the obstruction occurs in the blood vessel that supplies blood to the brain, it will lead to a stroke.
Low-density lipoproteins made by the liver may be caused by obesity, diabetes, smoking, high consumption of alcohol, and genetic predisposition.
Familial hypercholesterolemia is an inherited disorder in which the person has high levels of bad cholesterol (LDL). This leads to atherosclerosis and coronary artery disease at a very early age.
Research shows that cholesterol levels tend to rise in men 40 yrs and older, and in women after menopause.
High blood cholesterol increases the risk of atherosclerosis, heart attacks, and strokes.

Cholesterol and blood can be compared to water and oil, they don't mix. For cholesterol to move throughout the bloodstream, it has to unit to proteins to form lipoproteins.
Excessive cholesterol levels in the blood can clog the arteries and trigger a heart attack or a stroke. 
The homeopathic goal is to lower high cholesterol to desired levels to prevent coronary heart disease.
Diet modification is recommended.
High-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol, the pickup-truck fleet, is known as the “good” cholesterol. This is the compact, or high-density, form of cholesterol. When you understand how the liver’s manufacturing and transport system works, it’s easy to see why the HDL are considered good—because HDLs help transport the excess LDL cholesterol form you arteries to the liver where it can be metabolized. That is why HDL is called the “good” cholesterol. For a healthy heart and circulatory system, you should have HDL cholesterol levels higher that 40mg/dl. The higher the level of your HDLs, the better it is for your health. People who have low levels of HDL cholesterol are at higher risk for heart disease.
According to the NCEP guidelines, an HDL level of 60 mg/dl is considered a negative risk factor. A negative risk factor is like a bonus point that can decrease your heart attack or stroke risk. Since knowing the amount of your HDL cholesterol is an important aspect of assessing your overall risk of heart disease, it’s a good idea to have your HDL cholesterol levels measured – not just your total cholesterol checked.
Low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol is known as the “bad” cholesterol; however, LDL cholesterol is bad for your body only if you have too much in your bloodstream or your have too much of the particularly harmful type. LDL cholesterol is an essential building block for cell membranes and the substance from which hormones, including cortisol and testosterone, are manufactured. The amount of LDL cholesterol that exceeds what your body needs, however, flows through your bloodstream and increases the likelihood of the formation of plaque that can block blood flow.NCEP guidelines focus more on your types of cholesterol than your total cholesterol. For example, if you have high total cholesterol but is mostly HDL, then that’s good things! Unfortunately, most people’s total cholesterol is composed mainly of LDL cholesterol, which is why having high cholesterol is generally considered bad for health.

Triglycerides - these are the chemical forms in which most fat exists in the body, as well asin food. They are present in the blood plasma. Triglycerides, in association with cholesterol, form the plasma lipids (blood fat). Triglycerides in the plasma originate either from fats in our food, or are made in the body from other energy sources, such as carbohydrates. Calories we consume but are not used immediately by our tissues are converted into triglycerides and stored in fat cells. When your body needs energy and there is no food as an energy source, triglycerides will be released from fat cells and used as energy - hormones control this process.
Total cholesterol is the sum of LDL + HDL + VLDL.
High cholesterol Causes
High cholesterol is typically due to a combination of environmental and genetic factors.
  • High cholesterol is often found to run in families. Familial hypercholesterolemia is an inherited form of high cholesterol that may lead to early heart disease.
  • Environmental factors include: Obesity and dietary choices.
  • Smoking and sedentary lifestyle can also raise cholesterol levels.
  • Diet has an important effect on blood cholesterol but the size of this effect varies substantially between individuals. Foods rich in saturated fats like meat, chicken, eggs, oil, etc. will raise LDL cholesterol levels.
  • Secondary causes include diabetes mellitus type 2, obesity, nephrotic syndrome, obstructive jaundice, hypothyroidism, Cushing’s syndrome, anorexia nervosa etc.
  • Altered oestrogen levels may increase LDL Cholesterol levels in women during Pregnancy and Post-menopausal.
  • Drinking too much alcohol can damage the liver and heart muscle, lead to high blood pressure, and raise triglyceride levels.
  • Several studies have shown that mental stress raises blood cholesterol levels over the long term.
  • Medications like thiazide diuretics, ciclosporin, glucocorticoids, beta blockers, retinoic acid, etc.
