    TCM Treatment for high cholesterolTCM Perspective On High Cholesterol
    High cholesterol is a medical condition in which the amount of cholesterol in one’s bloodstream exceeds a normal or recommended level. Cholesterol is a complex organic compound that occurs naturally in the body and is used to produce bile acids, vitamin D, and a number of hormones needed by the body to function normally. When excessive amounts of cholesterol are present in the body, they may deposit on the inside lining of arteries, leading to a number of coronary heart disorders. While high cholesterol can be treated by a variety of western medical approaches, such as statin drugs, there are often unwanted side effects and unclear benefits. Traditional Chinese Medicine offers a safe, natural alternative form of care than can be used in conjunction with regular checkups to manage your cholesterol levels.

    High Cholesterol in western medicine
    Cholesterol is a type of fat (lipid) made by your body and found in some foods. It's essential for good health and is found in every cell in your body. But having a high level of a certain type of cholesterol in your blood can increase your risk of cardiovascular disease, such as heart disease and stroke.

    You probably won’t notice if you have high cholesterol, as it doesn’t usually cause any symptoms. But having a high level of cholesterol in your blood can cause fatty deposits (known as plaques) to build up inside your arteries. Over time, this can make your arteries narrower and narrower, restricting the flow of blood to important organs such as your heart. This can cause symptoms like chest pain (angina).

    More importantly though, if one of the plaques in your arteries bursts, it can cause a blood clot. This can completely block the blood supply to your heart, causing a heart attack. Or it might block the blood supply to your brain, which would cause a stroke.

    Special Hints for Your Diet in TCM
    Traditional Chinese medicine is a fantastic art of healing. TCM doctors use not only herbal medicines for treating diseases, but also they pay close attention to the patient's diet. In TCM, it's required that a patient should have a proper diet during the whole course of treatment. A perfect TCM prescription together with a proper diet can make you recover from the disease as soon as possible. Following is our suggestions on your diet.
    Foods fit to eat
    Making healthy eating habits a part of your daily life is one of the best things you can do to lower your risk.
    Eating heart-healthy foods can help you manage your weight, cholesterol, and blood pressure.
    Eat more fruits and vegetables and other high-fiber foods.
    Choose foods that are low in saturated fat, trans fat, and cholesterol.
    Eat at least two servings of fish each week. Oily fish, which contain omega-3 fatty acids, are best. 
    Foods unfit to eat
    Trans fats affect cholesterol levels by increasing the "bad" cholesterol and lowering the "good" cholesterol. This bad combination increases the risk of heart attacks. Trans fats can be found in fried foods and many commercial products, such as cookies, crackers and snack cakes. But don't rely on packages that are labeled "trans fat-free."
