Acupuncture for Bad Cholesterol Reduction
We all know that having high bad cholesterol levels contributes to heart disease. Risk factors include being overweight and having a diet high in saturated fat. Traditional Chinese medicine can help you lower the levels of bad cholesterol in your blood and help your body shed excess pounds.
High Cholesterol Health Risks
If you are overweight and eat a diet high in saturated fats, you probably have high cholesterol, and having high bad cholesterol levels can increase your risk for having a heart attack, stroke and other heart diseases.
The primary way to lower and control bad cholesterol is through diet, exercise and medication therapy. However, some patients do not respond well to these treatments. For these individuals, receiving traditional Chinese needle therapy can be a way to holistically lower bad cholesterol levels and prompt weight loss.
Acupuncture for Help in Reducing Cholesterol Levels
The International Journal of Clinical Acupuncture reported on a cholesterol study that involved 50 overweight individuals with high bad cholesterol levels who received multiple treatments to help lower their cholesterol levels.
The individuals experienced lower cholesterol levels after their first treatment, and after treatments were stopped, the participants in the study continued to reap the benefits. Their cholesterol levels continued to improve and several lost a significant amount of weight.
It works by stimulating liver and gall bladder function and normalizing hormone levels. The liver makes good cholesterol and disposes of bad cholesterol. When the liver malfunctions, cholesterol levels can get out of control.
