Atherosclerosis (High Cholesterol)

Also known as “hardening of the arteries,” atherosclerosis is a disease in which the arteries are hardened and narrowed as a result of plaque that has built up along the inside of the artery walls. Atherosclerosis can occur in any artery in the body. 

Plaque is made up of fat, cholesterol, calcium, and other substances found in the blood. Over time, plaque hardens and narrows your arteries. The flow of oxygen-rich blood to your organs and other parts of your body is reduced.This can lead to serious problems, including death. 

Males and people with a family history of premature cardiovascular disease have an increased risk of atherosclerosis. These risk factors can`t be controlled. Research shows the benefits of reducing the controllable risk factors for atherosclerosis: 
- High blood cholesterol 
- Cigarette smoking and exposure to tobacco smoke 
- High blood pressure 
- Diabetes mellitus 
- Obesity 
- Physical inactivity 

Research also suggests that inflammation in the circulating blood may play an important role in triggering heart attacks and strokes. Inflammation is the body`s response to injury, and blood clotting is often part of that response. Blood clots, as described above, can slow down or stop blood flow in the arteries. 

- Homoeopathic remedy is able to prevent and slow the progression of atherosclerosis. 
- It is also able to regulate blood pressure as well as cholesterol levels, which are direct risk factors for atherosclerosis. 
- It also prevent the oxidation of low lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol, too, a process which contributes to heart disease and 
- Have circulation-boosting properties 

Early treatment of atherosclerosis can prevent you from heart failure, stroke and death!
