Plant Sterols, Fish Oil and Cardiovascular Disease

Wednesday, June 11th, 2008

A combination of two supplements can significantly improve total
cholesterol, triglycerides, HDL and LDL. Published in the Journal of
Nutrition, this study looked at 60 individuals with elevated lipids.
Those individuals who were given a combination of plant sterols and
omega-3 oils experienced a significant improvement in their lipid
profiles. Specifically, their total cholesterol dropped by over 13%,
their triglycerides fell by 25%, their LDL (“bad”) cholesterol fell by
over 12% and their HDL (“good”) cholesterol rose by over 8%.

These are precisely the changes that physicians want to see for
lowering an individual’s risk of cardiovascular disease.

Naturopathic Views on Statins

Sunday, October 16th, 2005

Listen to Statins Podcast

In this podcast, Nature Cures Clinic founder, Dr. Greg Eckel and colleagues discuss statins, drugs that are prescribed to lower cholesterol.  They discuss what the risks are in using statins to balance out the cholesterol, rather than addressing the underlying cause of the imbalance.  Drugs are the most common way that conventional medicine will use to address high cholesterol.  They will explain to you the naturopathic way of addressing it through fixing the underlying cause of the elevated cholesterol, which will ultimately give you the ability to bring your cholesterol level back down, in a way that is healthy, safe and often permanent.
