Lowering Your Bad Cholesterol Level

Lowering your cholesterol level need not be something that only medication can do. Not all cholesterol is bad. You have two types in your blood; one is considered good and the other is considered to be bad.

The two types are known as Low-density lipoprotein (LDL) and High-density lipoprotein (HDL).

It is the LDL levels that you need to be most concerned about.

When your LDL levels are too high, the cholesterol builds up on the walls of your arteries. Your arteries harden over time and reduce the flow of oxygen and blood to your heart. If left unchecked, your arteries can become completely blocked and cause a heart attack. (Continued)

Often they follow a pattern something like this: someone discovers an unheard of plant in a faraway country and extracts ingredients which will supposedly help people lose weight.

An Introduction To Diabetes

Diabetes is a condition that results from the imbalance of pancreatic islet hormones in the body. Produced by the pancreatic islet cells, the alpha and beta cells produce hormones like insulin and glucose. These hormones are responsible for proper increases and decreases of sugar levels in the blood. A reduction in the insulin results in hyperglycemia, which deprives cells of the needed fuel to function properly. Proper levels of insulin to decrease glucose, which is energy used by the body, work in conjunction with the pancreas in producing the insulin the body needs to regulate the acidity of the sugars in the blood. When hyperglycemia happens, any type of diabetic condition, like diabetes mellitus, will materialize within the body.

Diabetes mellitus is a part of two types of diabetes categories that are disorders resulting directly in the endocrine dysfunction of the pancreas, liver and kidneys. It is a chronic disorder of carbohydrate, fat, and protein metabolism and is specifically as a result of inadequate insulin production by the pancreatic islet cells, causing a pancreatic disorder. A pancreatic disorder is the faulty use of insulin by the cells in the body. A build up of ketones in the kidneys or a liver dysfunction resulting in a pancreatic disorder, creates the breeding ground for diabetes mellitus. When a person is diagnosed with diabetes, his or her breath is said to have a fruity odor, and a test will reveal ketones in their urine.        (Continued)

Holistic Cancer Healing

Cancer is not considered a single disease. It is a complex and large group of malignancies which can affect every organ in your body. Cancer cells reproduce themselves at a rapid rate unlike normal cell production.  If the cells metastasize, they can attack different organs.  These cells then break off and travel through the blood stream to other parts of the body and begin metastasize.

Cancer can be caused by both external and internal factors.  Exposure to carcinogens poisons, pesticides, etc. can cause cancer as well as hormones and inherited DNA mutations can create cancerous cells in the body.       (Continued)

Fight Stress Using A Healthy Diet

A well balanced diet is the precursor to good health, and has been found to help protect against many lifestyle related illnesses, including stress.  Stress is the physical reaction that people will  experience when they feel overwhelmed, or pressured.  It is extremely common, especially due to the very busy lives we lead today.  However, it has been found that you can reduce your stress levels with proper diet and nutrition.

Unfortunately, when faced with pressure one of the first things that can be affected is your eating habits.  You feel listless and lose your appetite or you sometimes can allow stress to make you eat more comfort foods.  In addition, stress can actually interfere with the natural digestive process, because a lot more acids are released into the stomach.  As a result, many persons experience a condition known as nervous stomach, and suffer from bloating and flatulence.  The usual response is to skip meals, which actually exacerbates the problem.       (Continued)
