How To Lower Cholesterol Naturally
High cholesterol is a health problem for a great many people.
Here are some ways to lower your cholesterol naturally.
1-Regulate Your Diet: Avoid or limit foods that contain high levels of cholesterol. Eat more whole grains, vegetables & fruit.
You want a diet that contains soluble fiber. This is found in whole grains and beans. Fruits and vegetables consist of
insoluble fiber. The soluble fiber in grains and beans binds with the cholesterol. It then removes it from your system.
On the other hand, the insoluble fiber found in vegetables and fruits adds bulk to your stools. This in turn will make
you more regular. Of course, this is equally important.
It is important to limit or avoid animal quality foods. Cholesterol is the most common in animal tissue, not plants.
2-Improve Your Lifestyle: Exercise can promote the metabolism of fats.
It is unbelievable how many ways that exercise benefits us. You often read about implementing exercise as an integral
part of any weight loss program. The truth is it is extremely helpful with a wide variety of health issues.
By exercising, you increase your energy requirements. This in turn will lower your cholesterol naturally.
3-Chinese Herbs: The practices of traditional Chinese medicine that incorporates the use of herbs produces outstanding results in the treatment
of lowing cholesterol.
The proper use of Chinese herbs produces a treatment that is all natural, mild, safe and effective.
Unlike conventional medicine, Chinese herbs that are used to lower cholesterol are extremely mild.
The good side to this is that they do not cause harmful side effects.
The down side is that they apparently takes months to work.
Notice that I said “apparently takes months to work”. The truth is that the herbs begin to work
immediately. But they do not jar or shock the system. The change is both gradual and steady.
Also, Chinese herbs will, unlike conventional medicine, improve liver function.
Improved liver function will be noticeable within a couple of months. This can be verified with
a blood test.
If you are presently taking medication and/or are under a physician’s care, please consult with
your doctor first.
