How to Lower Cholesterol with Herbal Remedies in TCM

If cholesterol is known for increasing the risk of deadly ailments such as blood clots, stroke, and heart failure, it's only logical for us to erase it from our diet completely and immediately, right? Wrong. Good cholesterol is needed by the body, the absence of which could lead to more serious illnesses than high cholesterol (hypercholesterolemia). This is why before you start monitoring and limiting your cholesterol intake, it is important for you to acknowledge beforehand the fact that there are good and bad types of cholesterol.

High bad cholesterol is a result of either hereditary factors or acquired through everyday aspects of your life such as a bad, stressful lifestyle, lack of physical activity, and wrong diet choices. Its symptoms can range from feelings of bloatedness, mood swings and nausea to more serious ones like stroke and heart attack. The risk increases as you get older; children aren't exempted as well, especially if they already have genetic risks and still take in foods that are high in bad cholesterol.

What's good is that through traditional Chinese medicine, you can significantly lower your bad cholesterol levels. TCM combats cholesterol levels based on the symptoms that the person is feeling. This targeted approach to therapy is not only cost-saving but very effective as well.

For instance, symptoms like lightheadedness, numb limbs, and blurry vision are usually associated with excessive phlegm dampness. The automatic TCM prescription for these types of symptoms are either red yeast rice capsules or the erchen decoction. When a person experiences dizziness and hears ringing in his ears, this is commonly linked to liver and kidney deficiencies. For these, chrysanthemum, Chinese woldberry, and foxglove root are administered.

There are two other symptoms that are directly linked to cholesterol issues in your body. They are stagnation of phlegm and stagnation of the liver. Each has it its own TCM prescription. Once you bring harmony to these four patterns, only then can you be rid of the adverse effects of high cholesterol for good.
