Here is the unfortunate truth.
You are more likely to die from heart-related disease than any other causes of death in the United States.
Here are some stats. In the United States in 2010, 597,689 citizens died of heart-related disease while 574,743 died of cancer.
And if you include stroke (129,476 died), which high cholesterol has a part to play in causing it, then it is the largest cause of death. Cancer ranks second.
These are scary statistics. However, the good news is that it is a preventable disease.
High blood pressure, high cholesterol, an unhealthy diet and the lack of physical activities are major contributing factors.
In this report, we'll focus on natural remedies that can be used to lower high cholesterol...
We understand you would rather treat your cholesterol problem naturally. Indeed that is an excellent approach.
However, do keep in mind that if after a period of time, natural supplements are unable to bring your cholesterol levels down to an acceptable level, you many need to go on a prescription cholesterol-lowering medication.
In fact, natural supplements can be used along with prescription cholesterol-lowering medications for even greater benefits.
Or, by using two or more natural remedies to lower cholesterol levels, you might be able to use a lower dose of your prescription medications. Of course, discuss this with your doctor first is this is your plan.
Do not discount the possibility of needing to use prescription medication, especially after you have given lifestyle and natural solutions a good trial run.
