High Cholesterol Levels

Cholesterol is a lipid essential for the formation of cell-membranes, the synthesis of certain hormones but also Vitamin D synthesis. Due to its nature, cholesterol cannot travel through the blood on its own and this is assisted by specific protein-carriers called lipoproteins. The most well-known lipoproteins are LDL (Low Density Lipoprotein) and HDL (High Density Lipoprotein). When someone is diagnosed with high LDL levels, means that there is a surplus of cholesterol in the individual’s organism. High cholesterol levels combined with chronic inflammation, have been associated with increased risk of heart disease and/or stroke.

 

Diagnosis of Real Causes & Treatment of High Cholesterol Levels

  • Gradual restoration of cellular function
  • Personalized therapeutic protocols, without chemical residues and excipients
  • Treating the real causes
  • Therapeutic formulas that work alone or in combination with any other medication
  • Adopting a Molecular / Therapeutic Nutrition Plan

Your Health Specialist will address a series of targeted questions to you, to assess whether your way of living and nutrition could be associated with increased levels of cholesterol. Then your specialist may recommend specialized blood tests, and/or other molecular-level diagnostic tests to identify possible hormonal and/or biochemical abnormalities. Your personalized treatment plan will be based upon the diagnostic tests results, the symptoms described and your medical history overall.
