Research has given very good guidelines for the following foods that will help in your condition. Pomegranate ( full, seeds, juice and skin) helps in reviving blood vessel health, repair wear-tear in vessels. Alkaline foods will help resolve oxidative stress that is an outcome of disease, and medication, especially longterm. These include daily, small portions of Amala, Doodhi, red pumpkin, ragi, pear, guvava, black pepper, petha (fruit). Ayurvedic "Dhamasa" is known to have clotlysis (dissolving blood clots) action, but needs to be taken under Ayurvedic doctor supervision. For your blocked nose, keep a small piece of 'Kapur' near your pillow to help decongestant of nasal track. Gargle with one drop eucalyptus oil in evening or much before sleeping to strengthen the breathing passage as well as help you throw out cough from forehead sinus.

Hello dear High triglycerides and cholesterol can cause atherosclerotic heart disease or narrowed coronary arteries in the heart can cause the symptoms of angina, when theheart muscle is not provided with enough oxygen to function. Decreased blood supply to the brain may be due to narrowed small arteries in the brain or because the larger carotidarteries in the neck may become blocked. This can result in a transient ischmic attack or stroke. Peripheral artery disease describes gradual narrowing of the arteries that supply the legs. During exercise , if the legs do not get enough blood supply, they can develop pain , called claudication . Other arteries in the body may also be affected by plaque buildup causing them to narrow, including the mesenteric arteries to the intestine and the renal arteries to the kidney. Change life style .do meditation,yoga, Go walk daily, do any one physically activity daily i.e.play any game., Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress,take plenty of water in day time. And 1 glass of water before bed at night. use flax oil, omega-3 fatty meal or cap., take .green veg., whole grain. Garlic,. Cod liver oil. Take anti cholesterol medicines .

Too much cholesterol in the blood can lead to cardiovascular disease. What you eat has a direct impact on your cholesterol level. In fact, a diet rich in fiber and other cholesterol-lowering foods may help lower cholesterol as much as statin medication for some people. Working with a registered dietitian and doctor is the key to develop and maintain a successful health program to manage it. I will inform you on how to make diet, lifestyle changes, make you understand instructions for taking medication because it won't work if you don't take it as directed. Consult privately for a holistic dietary therapy to solve your problems.
