From an Ayurvedic perspective, high cholesterol – a disproportionate ratio of HDL (good cholesterol) to LDL (bad cholesterol) – is due to an imbalance in Kapha (the dosha responsible for metabolizing fat in the body). Cholesterol, a fatty acid manufactured in the liver, is critical to the cells of the body, and in and of itself is not bad. But when the body is out of balance, the liver may not function properly. Then, an excess of LDL builds up clogging arteries. These fat deposits eventually lead to high blood pressure, heart disease, and stroke.
Come and discover:
The role diet and digestion play in balancing the body
Foods that enhance fat metabolism – including healthy fats
The importance of fiber and which types are best
Spices that help cleanse the colon and prevent buildup of LDL
Herbs and supplements that support the liver
