Hyperlipidemia or high cholesterol and/or triglycerides, is a common problem with the standard, high carbohydrate, processed food, American diet. This also leads to diabetes, heart disease and cancer, not to mention, auto-immune and other chronic diseases, so we need to take an honest look at our lifestyle choices and take responsibility for that and not expect that ANY healthcare provider do that for us. Therefore, I want to make it clear that there is no "magic pill" for reducing lipids in the human body. To reduce body fat as well as fats in the blood takes a change in diet and exercise and is aided by supplementation, as needed. With that said, the first step is detox and changing your diet, then staying with your lifestyle choices in foods and adding exercise, as tolerated, while drinking purified water 60-80 oz. per day and spreading your food intake throughout the day.
IN ADDITION TO THIS, I RECOMMEND THAT ALL OF MY PATIENTS REMOVE WHEAT AND REDUCE GRAIN INTAKE IN THEIR DIET. Please see the article I give to virtually all of my patients, an interview with Dr. William Davis, author of "Wheat Belly", which briefly outlines the pitfalls of modern wheat and why we should all be removing this food from our diets. Also visit www.wheatbellyblog.com for more detailed information on how to make healthy dietary changes.
If you also have weight to lose, check out the FIRST LINE THERAPY PROGRAM or HEALTHY TRANSFORMATIONS PROGRAM (# 17 nutritional program) to get started and get those healthy habits in place. AND, please read my handout "General Wellness Program" for more tips on healthy eating for life and happiness. If you need help with this, you can call the Natural Health Improvement Center for a one-on-one consultation with our Lifestyle Educator or one of our Physician Assistants, who can motivate and guide you through these changes.
