Lower your Cholesterol & Triglycerides using a more Holistic Medicine approach!

  • Did you know that exercise can help to lower your triglycerides and bad cholesterol (LDL) levels & at the same time… increase your good cholesterol (HDL) levels!!!  Aim for at least 20 minutes – 3x/week – ideally interval style of workouts where your heart rate goes up and down
  • Intermittent Fasting – consume all of your calories between noon and 8pm.   Try this 2-3 days per week to enhance metabolism and improve/lower your cholesterol and triglyceride levels
  • Eat a predominantly plant-based diet
  • Increase your consumption of fiber
  • Make sure you are having at least one healthy bowel movement per day
  • Policosanol
  • Timed release niacin is ESPECIALLY effective! (NOT the inositol hexanicotinate form)
  • Phytosterols – unless you are a “hyper-absorber” (this can be tested)
  • Curcumin
  • Pantethine
  • Drink more green tea
  • Guggul extract
  • Increase your consumption of EFAs – essential fatty acids (fish oil)
  • 1-2 glasses of red wine – I LOVE this one!!!
  • We are available for in-office, skype/phone, and email appointments.
