Hypnosis can help you to lower your blood cholesterol levels
Hypnosis can help you to lower your blood cholesterol levels and reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease in at least two ways: Diet and stress.
People who consume chicken, fish, beef, pork and dairy products have a higher risk of heart disease than do people who eat whole plant-based foods.
When you are stressed your body releases stress hormones like cortisol that act as free radicals, which are elements in the body that destroy cells. When the cells get hurt, they need cholesterol to patch up the damage. This process can build huge amounts of cholesterol in your body, leading to heart disease.
Using hypnosis, you can easily change your nutritional lifestyle and reduce your overall level of stress. Since 1997, I have helped people at my Bainbridge Island Hypnosis and Seattle Hypnosis offices and in more recent years, worldwide online.

How to Lower Your Cholesterol and heart disease risk
Decrease Cholesterol Intake
Since our bodies make plenty of cholesterol for our needs, we do not need to add any in our diet. Cholesterol is found in all foods that come from animals: red meat, poultry, fish, chicken, eggs, milk, cheese, yogurt, and other dairy products.
Choosing lean cuts of meat is not enough; the cholesterol is mainly in the lean portion. Many people are surprised to learn that chicken contains as much cholesterol as beef, 25 mg per ounce.9 Every 4-ounce serving of beef or chicken contains 100 mg of cholesterol. Most shellfish are also very high in cholesterol.
All animal products should be avoided for this reason. No foods from plants contain cholesterol, since plants do not have a liver to produce it. Every 100 mg of cholesterol in your daily diet adds roughly five points to your cholesterol level, although this varies from person to person. In practical terms, 100 mg of cholesterol is contained in 4 ounces of beef or chicken, half an egg, or three cups of milk.
People can reduce their cholesterol levels dramatically by changing the foods they eat. For every 1 percent you reduce your cholesterol level, you reduce your risk of heart disease by 2 percent.10 For example, a reduction from 300 mg/dl to 200 mg/dl (i.e., a one-third reduction) will yield a two-thirds reduction in the risk of a heart attack. For some people, the benefits are even greater.
Cholesterol and Heart Disease
An estimated 7.1 million Americans have experienced a heart attack during their lifetimes. Those who survive a heart attack often go on to have another.
More than 7 percent of Americans have some type of cardiovascular disease, and one out of every six deaths in the United States is due to coronary heart disease alone. Eating habits and other lifestyle factors play a large role in determining the risk of heart disease and may prevent or even reverse this condition.
