High Cholesterol

Western Diagnosis

High cholesterol levels are one of the primary causes of heart disease and also contribute to high blood pressure, impotence, gallstones and mental problems.

As well, colon polyps and cancer (in particular prostate and breast cancer) have also been associated with high serum cholesterol levels.

Perhaps the greatest contributor to high cholesterol, diet strongly influences the level of cholesterol in the body. The consumption of foods which are high in saturated fat and cholesterol increases cholesterol levels, while a largely vegetarian diet combined with exercise can lower cholesterol levels in existing cases, and reduce the chances of having high cholesterol in those with normal levels.
