High Blood Cholesterol
 
Cholesterol is a fatty substance found in the blood, cells,
and tissues of the organism. 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 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 heartattack. 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, 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.
 
Homeopathic Treatment Goal
 
High blood cholesterol increases the risk of atherosclerosis, heart
attacks, and strokes. 
 
The homeopathic goal is to lower cholesterol to desired levels to
prevent coronary heart disease. 
 
Diet modification is recommended.

Home Remedies for High Blood Cholesterol
 
Eat a well-balanced, high-fiber diet based on whole grains, legumes, fruits,
and vegetables.
 
Increase soluble fiber intake, it improves lipid production.
 
Avoid foods high in saturated fats such as margarine, fermented cheese, whole
milk, vegetable shortening, poultry skin, sauces, fried food, and ice cream.
 
Avoid cholesterol-rich foods such as egg yolk, seafood, and baked goods made
with eggs.
 
Choose good fats such as monounsaturated, polyunsaturated, and omega-3
essential fatty acids.
 
 
Garlic helps reduce high cholesterol. In the morning take a tiny piece of garlic
and crush it with the knife. Follow with a glass of water (swallowing instead of
chewing avoids garlic breath). The allicin in garlic also helps lower high blood
pressure and prevents blood clotting.
 
Have a glass of red wine with meals, at dinner, it increases HDL production.
 
Drink eight to ten glasses of water, per day.
 
Engage in 30 minutes of physical activity.
