Cholesterol is a fatty substance (a lipid) that is an important part of the outer lining (membrane) of cells in the body of animals. Cholesterol is also found in the blood circulation of humans. The cholesterol in a person's blood originates from two major sources; dietary intake and liver production.
The liver is capable of removing cholesterol from the blood circulation as well as manufacturing cholesterol and secreting cholesterol into the blood circulation. When the liver is not functioning properly cholesterol increases. LDL cholesterol is called "bad" cholesterol, because elevated levels of LDL cholesterol are associated with an increased risk of coronary heart disease. HDL cholesterol is called the "good cholesterol" because HDL cholesterol particles prevent atherosclerosis by extracting cholesterol from the artery walls and disposing of them through the liver.
There are very effective ways to lower cholesterol, LDL and increase HDL without going on organ damaging medications. By applying simple dietary and lifestyle changes while incorporating natural therapies to help liver function and with the right nutritional supplements you can reverse the years of damage that if not changes may lead to heart disease and stroke.
High Blood Pressure
High blood pressure (hbp) or hypertension means high pressure (tension) in the arteries. There are many causes for high blood pressure including dysfunction of the liver and/ or kidneys. It can also be due to the effects of excessive adrenal hormones.
With our testing of all these factors, we have been successful in finding the cause of the high blood pressure and lowing blood pressure naturally using alternative and holistic therapies.
