Having high levels of “bad” cholesterol puts people at greater risk for cardiovascular disease and can eventually lead to a heart attack or stroke. There are different methods used to lower a patient’s cholesterol levels that include everything from diets and exercise to expensive medications. Homeopathy offers an alternative and natural approach to reducing a person’s cholesterol with remedies and preventive strategies that are also beneficial for everyday living.
Homepathy in Heart Disease
Heart disease due to high levels of cholesterol in blood has already reached epidemic proportions in most developed countries. Too much “bad” cholesterol clogs arteries and leads to circulatory and heart problems that can result in serious illnesses and even death. The large number of patients with this type of disease has led health professionals to develop different prevention and treatment options for high cholesterol. Homeopathy is an effective and easy way to lower your cholesterol levels.
Lifestyle Changes: Diet and Exercise
Starting with a change in a person’s lifestyle, a homeopathic way to lower your cholesterol is to go on a diet. This diet is not intended for weight loss–although it does allow the patient to drop a few pounds–and shouldn’t be considered temporary. It should be a permanent lifestyle change.
Make sure to eat foods such as alfalfa seeds, artichoke, barberry, cinnamon, fenugreek, garlic, ginger, ginseng, red yeast rice and silymarin. These foods and spices each have a different way of helping to reduce the “bad” cholesterol. Try to make them all part of your daily meal plan.
Homeopathic Remedies: Constitutional Treatment
With its age-old hypothesis of “like cures like” and a deep commitment to treating each patient as an individual, homeopathic remedies work by triggering the body’s own healing response. This is accomplished by introducing small doses of natural substances that stimulate the person’s immune system to fix itself.
Seek out the services of an experienced homeopath. She will be able to determine the best remedy for your particular symptoms. The professional will assess your physical, psychological and emotional composition to give you the most appropriate solution. This is also known as “constitutional treatment.” Constitutional treatment prescribed by a trained homeopathy practitioner should be followed strictly. Make a list of everything you will need for your constitutional treatment and stock up on those items. Follow instructions to prepare your recipes as well as your remedies. Be sure to take your natural medications at their scheduled times.
Homeopathic and Herbal Remedies
Use some of the better-known natural remedies for high blood cholesterol, including onion juice, coriander seeds, sunflower seeds, soy products, oat bran, almonds and walnuts. All of these substances or foods are used to make homeopathic remedies to lower cholesterol.
A balanced diet plus exercise and homeopathic remedies can help return your cholesterol levels to normal values.
