Now, you could use medications (statin drugs) to bring down your cholesterol. And they can do that but they do have some negative effect associated with them namely muscle pain and fatigue. Or you could work "upstream" and take actions which give you direct control and which directly target the root cause of your elevated cholesterol (and other risk factors!). What's your choice?
Some key solutions include: Improving the amount of your sleep to the recommended eight hours per night, focus on reducing stress in all the different areas of your life (workplace, home life, life purpose, mission, direction, reducing sources of inflammation, financial stress, etc) that is the key area of my writings. See website Stress Reduction Stress Relief to get more free training videos.
And also key is reducing your intake of high glycemic carbohydrates, reducing intake of "liquid candy" and boosting your diet with key nutrients to overcome any shortfalls (multi vitamin-mineral).Increasing both soluble and insoluble fibers will help to stabilize blood sugar, reduce insulin as well as bind cholesterol before it enters your blood which all bring cholesterol down.
I can also strongly recommend and encourage you to move more. Can you move more for fun, joy purpose and socialization? Of course you can. Exercise helps tire one out so we sleep better, it works better than any medication to improve insulin resistance and lower insulin levels, it help "burn" stress and fat and it gives our bodies muscle tone which is sexy! NICE. We did it as kids and we can do it as adults.I hope this article serves you well and shows you how stress drives up your cholesterol, BP and belly fat. I also hope it empowers you to take control of your health.
