Cholesterol has been around for thousands of years.
It's a natural function of the human body. Unfortunately,
most people aren't even aware they have high cholesterol
until they have a heart attack or stroke. It is possible
to have up to 80 percent closure of the arteries without
ever feeling a single symptom! Here are 5 tips you can use
straight away to start lowering your cholesterol today:

1. Reduce fat in your diet.

Buy the leanest cuts of meat you can find. Regularly
substitute poultry (without the skin) and fish for
red meat. Both are lower in saturated fat. Switch to
low fat cottage cheese and yogurt, reduced fat hard
cheeses and skim or 1 percent milk.

2. Eat no more than four egg yolks a week.

Many people don't have to worry about eating cholesterol.
Normal bodies adjust to increased intake by cutting back
on regular product. However, since one third of Americans
are cholesterol responders their blood cholesterol does
go up when they eat cholesterol. You probably don't know
if you fall into this category so play it safe. Eat no
more than four egg yolks a week. An average egg yolk
contains 213 milligrams of cholesterol!

3. Eliminate fried foods.

Buying low fat is just the beginning. You need to
institute low fat cooking methods to keep the cholesterol
from sneaking back in to your diet. Remove fatty skin from
chicken and turkey. Don't fry foods. Roast, bake, broil,
grill or poach them instead. Use fat free marinades or
basting with liquids like wine, tomato or lemon juice.
Use olive or canola oils for sautŠ¹ing or baking. Both are
very low in saturated fat. Use diet, tub or squeeze
margarines instead of regular. Watch for the term
"hydrogenated," which means some of the fat is saturated.

4. Eat vegetables and complex carbohydrates.

Lowest fat foods of all are vegetables, fruits, grains
(rice, barley and pasta), beans and legumes. Try
substituting some of these for meat and high fat dairy
products. Don't douse your pasta with butter or your
potato with sour cream. Use tomato base sauces instead of
cream base. Use lemon juice, low sodium soy sauce or herbs
to season vegetables. Make chili with extra beans and
seasonings while leaving out the meat.

5. Lose weight.

If you are overweight, the chances are almost 100% that
you have a problem with high cholesterol. You can lower
your LDL and elevate your HDL just by dropping some pounds.
Eat fewer fatty foods and more fruits, vegetables, grains
and beans and it's a pretty good bet that you will slowly
but surely lose weight.

Remember there is no substitute for your physician.
Make certain that you clear any new treatments with him
before embarking on any radical health changes you are
anticipating.

    In the cases of heart attack and cardiac arrest, or any other heart shocks, time sets to be the most crucial factor for the survival of the patient. Sometimes, a little knowledge regarding the immediate actions to be taken may help your near and dear ones to survive in such incidents. The response a person takes to treat a victim decides the probability of his/her survival. Its been my personal experience fighting to survive against a heart attack. A quick reorganization of your bodily responses may increase your chances of survival. Because of having many heart problems, I was enrolled in a concierge Healthcare program from elite health. I was attacked by a severe heart attack in a party, luckily surrounded by many people. Some of the sudden changes in my body was recognized by me and anticipated immediately. I got a very severe chest pain which was almost unbearable for more than a minute. I got the suspicion that I might be having heart attack, and immediately called my physician on the phone, and explained my condition and its severity. Because of the immediate guidance, I was directed immediately to have an aspirin which I used to carry with me as prescribed by my physician. It was quite a frightening experience for me to face such a heart attack, but somehow I managed to be calm until 911 arrived. I was immediately taken to the nearest hospital, where already my physician were present and have got everything setup according to my medical history. And it was in some matter of seconds that everything was in control. A doctor, who already have the complete knowledge of the medical history and fitness of the person, extra ordinarily ameliorate your recovery process. Hence such a concierge level program from Elite health, helped me a save my life, like many others.
