Cholesterol has been a major measuring stick of health since the seventies. Heart attacks, strokes, and other serious complications can raise from having unhealthy cholesterol levels. The problem is that the cure can be more dangerous than the original problem. New, high-tech cholesterol drugs have been associated with some very serious health problems. Yet, when your cholesterol levels are too high, you are not always informed on exactly how these levels change and what your options are.
Cholesterol levels are themselves only symptoms.
The liver is your key organ in controlling cholesterol levels, as this organ has the absolute final word on the levels that doctors use to determine you cholesterol. A liver that is busy cleaning out chemicals, preservatives, and other unhealthy foods from your diet is too busy to control your cholesterol properly. Flushing toxins from your liver and starting with a fresh new way of eating are the most potent means of bringing your cholesterol levels under control.
The diets are generally recommended by most major associations simply do not go far enough.
You need a diet that is delicious, safe, healthy, and energizing, and which will bring you greater results than the diets you may have been presented with in the past. There are a lot of myths about dieting and diets, and why counting the calories, carbs, fats, and cholesterol that you intake is more often a mere distraction than the spirit of healthy eating.
Second to this is being certain that the liver is not physically hindered in its mechanisms. This means having a physician examine the musculature surrounding the liver, ensuring that circulation is not cut off by a rigid, tight musculature.
The goal should be to seek a doctors counseling until your cholesterol levels are safe enough so that you can be removed from your prescription routine, or to help you avoid a prescription routine alike. Ask questions to discover the true processes behind cholesterol formation, behind plaque formations, and consider healthy options for dealing with your cholesterol levels.
