A holistic approach to lowering Cholesterol

If you could have an alternative way to help reduce your cholesterol without the high risk of damaging your body and potentially creating another disorder for you to over come, would you look into it?  Below is a list of ways you can try to help reduce your cholesterol naturally.  This list has helped countless others either get off their prescriptions or maintain their levels without the need of a prescription.  

Cholesterol is divided into two basic types – the bad cholesterol, also known as LDL, and the good kind, also known as HDL. HDL is good because real particles remove cholesterol from artery walls and throw it through the liver. However, because of actual bad LDL cholesterol deposits in artery walls, eventually leading to a build-up that narrow arteries.

Food is the main factor causing high levels of bad cholesterol and low levels of good cholesterol. Foods high in saturated fat, trans fat and cholesterol would negatively affect your LDL and HDL levels, putting health at serious risk.

Understanding your nutrition and what you may be having too much of or not enough of could be a major contributing factor to out of balance cholesterol levels.

If you are taking statin drugs or are considering taking them please click the links below to understand the potential dangers they may present to your body.

 A holistic approach to lowering Cholesterol would be to consider the following supplements and nutrition suggestions.
    Supplements to consider:
    ***Red Yeast Rice (use temporarily as it is very effective and aggressive, however, this is a borderline supplement that hedges on the line of being almost a medication which can have side effects.   We suggest only using it for one to two months until the cholesterol has been successfully lowered.) 
    Then switch to... Guggul or Policosanol

    ***Coenzyme Q10 or ubiquinol
    ***Lecitin granules
    ***Psyllium Husk (for fiber)
    Niacin (B3)
    Artichoke Leaf extract

    Lots of fresh Fruits and Veggies especially green ones... not just salads. Pack a cooler and bring your food with you.  TIP***   Cabbage leafs make a great bread substitute and you can use them to make wraps.
    • Kale
    • Broccoli
    • Celery
    • Cabbage
    • Sprouts
    • Cucumber
    • Zucchini
    • Spinach
    • Green Leaf lettuce
    • Dandelion
    • Yams/sweet potatoes - LIMITED
    • Carrots - LIMITED because of sugar content
    • Granny Smith apples
    • Berries - any
    • Lemon
    • Lime
    • Grapefruit


    Distilled water and add either a squeezed lemon or "concentrace" (trace minerals) - this helps the body with alkalinity.  (distilled water without lemon or minerals is actually acid in the body and works against healing)

    Another great holistic approach to lowering cholesterol is to follow "The Paleo Solution" by Robb Wolf.
