Cholesterol is both our friend and foe – at normal levels, it is an essential substance for the body’s normal functioning, but if levels in the blood get too high, it becomes a silent danger that puts us at risk of a heart attack.
Your body needs some cholesterol to make hormones, vitamin D, and substances that help you digest foods. Your body makes all the cholesterol it needs. However, cholesterol also is found in some of the foods you eat.
Cholesterol travels through your bloodstream in small packages called lipoproteins (lip-o-PRO-teens). These packages are made of fat (lipid) on the inside and proteins on the outside.
Natural or complementary treatments for heart disease often aim to control cholesterol levels, lower blood pressure, and improve heart health. Typically, research on such treatments is limited, compared to that on conventional medical treatments.
Recipe for a natural remedial:
- 2 liters of filtered water
- 3 lemons
- Baking soda
- 3 stalks of parsley
Clean the lemons with the baking soda. Boil the water and let it to cool. Chop the parsley and the lemon into slices, and add them to the water. Cover the liquid and place it in the fridge.
You should consume this drink in the morning, before your breakfast for 5 days.
There are many alternative treatments proposed for lowering cholesterol. But before you add any supplements or alternative therapies to your diet, talk to your health care provider.
