SECRETS TO LOW CHOLESTEROL
by Joyce Johnson, President of Wellness Center of America
Q – WHAT EXACTLY IS CHOLESTEROL?
A – A fat-like substance found in all our body cells. It is manufactured in the liver and is used by the body to make hormones and cell membranes along with other substances.
Q – WHY IS CHOLESTEROL LINKED TO HEART DISEASE?
A – It’s the main component of the plaque that settles along the walls of blood vessels, collecting until it finally clogs and closes the passageway through the vessels. This can cause a heart attack or stroke.
Q – WHAT LOW CHOLESTEROL FOODS SHOULD I EAT DURING FESTIVE OCCASIONS?
A – Eat turkey white meat, yams, green vegetables, cranberry sauce, pumpkin pie, and red wine; hold the brown meat, gravy, mashed potatoes, pecan pie, whipped cream, stuffing, and eggnog.
Q – WHAT IS THE NUMBER ONE SYMPTOM OF A HEART DISEASE?
A – Death . . . there usually are no symptoms.
Q – HOW CAN I PREVENT A HEART ATTACK?
A – By keeping a close check on your risk factors: blood pressure, cholesterol HDL/LDL/VLDL, triglycerides, platelets, C-Reactive Protein, fibrinogen, and homocysteine (tests which can be ordered at our lab near you).
Q – WHAT IS A SAFE LEVEL FOR MY CHOLESTEROL?
A – 100 plus your age with the HDL (good cholesterol) over 60.
Q – HOW CAN I RAISE MY GOOD HDL CHOLESTEROL?
A – Exercise will raise HDL along with red wine (limit 2 small glasses) and foods rich in essential fats, especially coconut oil.
Q – WHAT ARE THE ESSENTIAL FAT FOODS THAT RAISE HDL?
A – These would be avocado, olive oil (unheated), wild salmon, sardines, almonds, walnuts, cashews, seeds, EPA, coconut oil, and flaxseed oil.
Q- WHAT FACTORS CAUSE HIGH CHOLESTEROL?
A – Many factors including heredity, animal fats, hydrogenated oils, hormone imbalances, constipation, low fiber diets, hypothyroidism, and poor liver and/or gallbladder function.
Q – IS IT SAFE TO TAKE STATIN MEDICATIONS LIKE LIPITOR TO LOWER CHOLESTEROL?
A – Drugs are dangerous because they don’t address the cause and ultimately could cause damage to your liver. The liver is where cholesterol is produced . . . Statin drugs suppress this natural function causing unnecessary stress on the liver.
