CONDITIONS WE CAN HELP WITH...

Cholesterol

Cholesterol is an essential part of health, made in the liver it is used to make the body's hormones, cell walls and nerve sheaths. There are good and bad cholesterols - bad cholesterol or LDL (low density lipoprotein) which is the one responsible for attaching itself to the walls of the arteries. LDL cholesterol can build up and eventually block an artery completely which potentially results in heart attack or stroke. The good cholesterol or HDL (high density lipoprotein) circulates around the blood stream, picking up excess LDL cholesterol and bringing it back to the liver in order for it to be processed. These cholesterols need to be kept within a good range in order to avoid the problems associated with unbalanced cholesterol.

A doctor will generally advise a client with high LDL levels to try to get this ratio back into range within a period of time before prescribing statins - cholesterol lowering drugs. Your Nutrition Mission therapist will be able to help you with this by looking at your diet and making some necessary changes to both this and your lifestyle, as needed.
Back
As a newly diagnosed, emotional & overweight diabetic, I found Nutrition Mission very knowledgeable professionals who are also supportive & accommodating - far better than my local GP. A few weeks into the program, where we are adjusting my former lifestyle in manageable chunks I already feel healthier plus have started to lose weight.
