Treating High Cholesterol with Traditional Chinese Medicine(TCM)

High cholesterol is a medical condition in which the amount of cholesterol in one’s bloodstream exceeds a normal or recommended level. Cholesterol is a complex organic compound that occurs naturally in the body and is used to produce bile acids, vitamin D, and a number of hormones needed by the body to function normally. When excessive amounts of cholesterol are present in the body, they may deposit on the inside lining of arteries, leading to a number of coronary heart disorders. While high cholesterol can be treated by a variety of western medical approaches, such as statin drugs, there are often unwanted side effects and unclear benefits. Traditional Chinese Medicine offers a safe, natural alternative form of care than can be used in conjunction with regular checkups to manage your cholesterol levels.

How Is Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Used in Treating High Cholesterol?

TCM practitioners recognize four primary conditions that are connected to high cholesterol. Each diagnosis is determined from an individual analysis of your pulse, tongue, symptoms, and lifestyle. These diagnoses include Damp-Phlegm in the Lung or Spleen, Blood Stasis, Spleen-Stomach Deficiency, and Liver-Kidney Deficiency. Acupuncture and herbal treatment will be based upon the correction of your imbalance with additional points and herbs for the specific symptom of high cholesterol. According to traditional Chinese medicine, cholesterol is considered as an excess deposit of dampness and phlegm in the blood vessels. To effectively reduce plasma levels of cholesterol and triglycerides, treatment must focus on dissolving damp, eliminating phlegm, and invigorating blood circulation.

What Is High Cholesterol?

Cholesterol is produced naturally by the human body and is essential for its normal function. Two forms of cholesterol exist, high density cholesterol (HDL, also known as “good” cholesterol) and low density cholesterol (LDL, or “bad” cholesterol).
An individual’s cholesterol level may differ for a number of reasons, such as:

  • Heredity – one’s genetic composition determines to some extent the amount of HDL and LDL his or her body tends to produce
  • Physical activity – in general, cholesterol levels tend to depend to some degree on the amount of physical exercise an individual engages in
  • Weight – overweight and obesity may have an effect on the level of HDL and LDL in one’s bloodstream
  • Age – cholesterol levels have a tendency to rise with age
  • Gender – before menopause, women tend to have lower cholesterol levels than do men; after menopause, their cholesterol levels tend to become higher than those of men.

An extensive amount of research indicates that high levels of cholesterol, especially LDL, are associated with high risk for coronary heart disease (CHD), the leading cause of death in the United States. In 2004, the last year for which data are available, 451,326 Americans died of CHD. Allopathic practitioners recommend changes in diet and increased physical activity as the first steps in reducing one’s cholesterol level.

A number of medications are also available for treating the condition, the most effective of which are compounds that belong to the chemical family known as the statins.

NUTRITION

Increase the daily intake of cholesterol-lowering foods such as apples, bananas, carrots, cold-water fish, dried beans, garlic, grapefruit, olive oil, and fibers such as bran and oats.

Increase the intake of niacin, which can lower total cholesterol levels by up to 18%, increase HDL cholesterol by up to 32%, and lower triglycerides by up to 26%. Do not overdose on niacin to avoid flushing and stomach pain.

Other supplements that are beneficial are vitamin B5, vitamin C, vitamin E, chromium picolinate, lecithin, and coenzyme Q10.

Decrease the intake of food that will raise cholesterol levels, including but not limited to beer, wine, cheese, tobacco products, aged and cured meats, sugar, and greasy or fried foods.

Increase the intake of vinegar, as it will help to soften the blood vessels and prevent atherosclerosis.

LIFESTYLE INSTRUCTIONS

Exercise is the best way to decrease the buildup of cholesterol in the arteries. It also helps to reduce weight.

Drink tea on a daily basis, especially after meals, to facilitate the elimination of fatty foods from the diet. Beneficial teas include black, oolong or green tea.

Avoid the use of alcohol and exposure to tobacco. They increase cholesterol buildup and hardening of the arteries.

AIT: Acupuncture Injection Therapy

We perform subcutaneous injections of FDA approved homeopathic remedies for stubborn conditions, especially pain, not responding well to acupuncture, herbal medicine, and exercise. Clinically we have found excellent results with homeopathic injections of Traumeel and Zeel for joint pain, neck pain, arthritis, and lower back pain.

Injectible solutions come in single-use sterile vials, and are completely safe with subcutaneous injection. Adverse effects are limited to local bruising and discomfort following the injections.

Recent research indicates Traumeel injections are as effective for pain as conventional treatments including narcotic painkillers and anti-inflammatory medications. Animal studies indicate traumeel injections seem to act by significantly speeding up the healing process instead of blocking the development of edema (swelling) from the beginning (for an injury). Moreover, its effect cannot be considered as the ‘sum’ of its active components and probably a synergistic interaction occurs to determine the final effect.

For stubborn arthritis, injection of Zeel can provide great, lasting relief of pain and inflammation. For problems related to lymph drainage, lymphomyosot can be an effective treatment strategy as well.
