Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the ultimate manifestation of the detrimental effects of a Western ‘diet of plenty’ and a sedentary lifestyle. Truly a modern epidemic, it shows no signs of abating despite the multitude of drugs and surgical options which have become broadly available. It has been said that you can’t medicate your way out of a problem you ate your way into, and this is why there is a tremendous opportunity for practitioners of natural medicine to revolutionise the treatment of CVD.
Has your doctor told you that you have high cholesterol?
High cholesterol in your body can lead to a narrowing of the arteries by fatty plaque deposit (known as atherosclerosis). Having these fatty plaques in your body may increase your risk of having a heart attack and/or stroke, therefore it is important to have regular cholesterol checks.
