Synopsis

Cholesterol is a type of fat that aids in the production of body cells and the production of some hormones and vitamin D. High cholesterol levels, on the other hand, cause artery clogging and other health problems. Homeopathic medicine for cholesterol can control your LDL levels without the adverse effects of statins.  

Key Takeaways

  • Homeopathic medicine for high cholesterol effectively brings down cholesterol levels without the negative effects
  • High cholesterol levels can be caused by genetics, poor lifestyle choices, underlying health issues, certain medication
  • Homeopathic treatment and lifestyle changes can help control cholesterol levels

Cholesterol is a naturally occurring fatty substance found in the blood. It aids in cell regeneration and is a necessary component of hormones and Vitamin D. But when we consume fatty foods, we consume more cholesterol than our bodies require. As a result, an abnormal accumulation of fat in the arteries can lead to partial or complete blockage of these vessels, eventually leading to dangerous health issues such as heart disease, heart attack, and even stroke. While cholesterol is required for normal body function, maintaining normal cholesterol levels is even more critical.  High blood cholesterol is considered a constitutional disease, so treatment should also be. If homeopathic treatment is initiated, normal levels can be attained and maintained. But before we dive into how homeopathic medicine for cholesterol works, let us understand how high cholesterol is caused.

What does high cholesterol mean? 

Fatty buildup in blood vessels is a risk associated with high cholesterol. Over time, this buildup thickens and restricts the amount of blood that can pass through your arteries. These deposits can rupture suddenly and form a clot, resulting in a stroke or a cardiac event. 

While genetics play a role in your risk of high cholesterol levels, it is more often the result of poor lifestyle choices. Thus, high cholesterol levels are both easily preventable and treatable. High cholesterol can be with lifestyle changes, such as a healthy diet, regular exercise, and medication. 

There are no symptoms of high cholesterol. You can only be diagnosed with it through a blood test.

Types of cholesterol 

Cholesterol travels through your bloodstream attached to proteins. A lipoprotein is a combination of proteins and cholesterol.  

Various types of cholesterol are as follows: 

  • LDL (low-density lipoprotein) distributes cholesterol metabolites throughout your body. LDL is frequently referred to as "bad" cholesterol. Artery walls develop an accumulation of LDL cholesterol, which causes them to stiffen and constrict. 
  • High-density lipoprotein cholesterol, or HDL, is the "good" cholesterol that transfers extra cholesterol to your liver. 
  • VLDL (very low-density lipoprotein): Made by the liver from carbohydrates and transferred to other tissues for storage, VLDL includes the most triglycerides and the smallest mass of lipoprotein. 
  • Triglycerides are the chemical forms of most fats in the body and food. Triglycerides and cholesterol combine to form lipids. Triglycerides in plasma are derived from fats in our diets or are synthesized in the body from other energy sources such as carbohydrates. Calories consumed but not immediately utilized by our tissues are converted to triglycerides and stored in fat cells. 

In addition to lifestyle and genetic factors, elevated cholesterol levels can be caused by a variety of medical conditions, including: 

  • Chronic kidney disease 
  • Diabetes 
  • HIV/AIDS 
  • Hypothyroidism 
  • Lupus 

Certain medications may also result in elevated cholesterol levels as a side effect.  

How can homeopathic treatment help with high cholesterol? 

A homeopathy is a form of medicine that uses the theory that the body can heal itself as its foundation. It is practiced by using natural substances such as plants and minerals. That is believed to aid in the healing process. 

Homeopathic medicines aim to manage high cholesterol by restoring balance to the body's various systems. The goal of homeopathy is to reduce high cholesterol levels to desired levels to prevent coronary heart disease. By assisting the body in healing the underlying illness, homeopathic treatment can help lower LDL cholesterol and increase HDL cholesterol. 

Homeopathic medicines are safe, natural, and have no side effects. Moreover, they are highly personalized to the patient with the help of a homeopathy doctor.
