Don’t worry about cholesterol; inflammation is your biggest problem

Cholesterol is good for you; it performs so many vital functions in your body.

Inflammation raises your risk of just about every serious disease, including heart attacks and strokes. If you want to look after your health, you’d better keep inflammation at bay!

Each week we see a number of patients who are seeking help for their high cholesterol level. They can quote the cholesterol figure in their last blood test and desperately want to lower it without the use of medication. Many of our patients have tried cholesterol lowering drugs in the past and weren’t happy with the side effects. They are even more worried about the potential long term effects of these drugs on brain function and the nervous system.
