How to reduce ldl & vldl from blood and what is the cause of these bad cholesterols.?
High cholesterol is a major risk factor for coronary heart disease, a cause of heart attacks, and reducing blood lipid levels lowers the cardiovascular risk.4 High levels of LDL lead to a build-up of cholesterol in the arteries, whereas HDL carries cholesterol to the liver for removal from the body.2 A build-up of cholesterol is part of the process that narrows arteries, called atherosclerosis, in which plaques form and cause restriction of blood flow.2 High cholesterol levels are a result of modifiable and non-modifiable risk factors. Two major risk factors, diet and exercise, are highly modifiable, meaning that something can be done to change these risk factors and reduce the likelihood of having high cholesterol.2 Limiting intake of fat in the diet helps manage cholesterol levels. In particular, it is helpful to limit foods that contain:2 Food sources of cholesterol Meat, cheese and egg yolks are sources of cholesterol. Cholesterol (from animal foods, such as egg yolks, meat and cheese) Saturated fat (found in some meats, dairy products, chocolate, baked goods, and deep-fried and processed foods) Trans fat (found in some fried and processed foods). Being overweight or obese can also lead to higher blood LDL levels, with regular exercise helpful in managing this risk factor.2 The primary causes of high cholesterol are genetic - very high LDL levels are found in the inherited condition familial hypercholesterolemia.5 Abnormal cholesterol levels may also be secondary to the following:5,6 Diabetes Liver or kidney disease Polycystic ovary syndrome Pregnancy and other conditions that increase levels of female hormones Underactive thyroid gland. Drugs that increase LDL cholesterol and decrease HDL cholesterol (progestins, anabolic steroids and corticosteroids).

Aged 73 when I undergoing early morning walking feel at times breathing trouble and light pain at the left side below my heart It continues for 2 to 3 minutes and vanished Want your advice ?

MD - General Medicine, MBBS
General Physician,
Pain in the chest especially on walking or excercise could suggest insufficient blood supply to your heart because of partial blockage. I would recommend you to consult a cardiologist or physician for the necessary tests.

I am 24 I have high bp problem from last 4 years due to anxiety, left ear hot sensation.
You are aware that anxiety is causing high BP. The first thing to do will be to rectify your lifestyle, adopt certain measures of self discipline in daily routine. These include proper sleep time, less number of hours on mobile, laptop and computer based activities including TV; Eat proper healthy, fresh (not packaged) food on time, big breakfast, full lunch and light dinner. Make sure you exercise till you sweat atleast for 3- to 45 mins daily. Learn few meditation techniques tat will help calm the mind. Learn to forgive yourself. These will surely help. At your age, do not resort to medication; trust natural changes first. Anxiety increases when there is no discipline; you need to inculcate these habits first. Have a good healthy diwali. Best wishes.

If you think this is not normal work upon it, try to remain calm, meditate. Use your energy somewhere like gym, sports exercise etc. Or do some social service. Try (biochemic) kaliphos 30x 4 pills 4 times for month and nervocalm (use as directed).

Every now n then focusing on heart does any problem. please tell me the foods for healthy heart.

Every now n then focusing on heart does any problem. please tell me the foods for healthy heart.
Yes being obsessed with having a heart disease is a problem. Eat healthy, exercise moderately and keep bp and blood sugar and lipid profile under control. Eat everything available according to seasons. Don't go out of the way to buy a particular fruit or vegetables. Less fats of good quality like mustard oil, saute and cook with steam using chat masala type of flavours and tomatoes purries to thicken the gravies instead of fried onions giving floating with oil curries and some homes prefer it this way only but habits of family needs a change so that nobody feels like a patient or a special person reminding about risk to heart. Eat vitamins and minerals through fresh fruits and vegetables of the season. Eg cucumber in summer and carrots in winters but use fresh lemon juice and honey for 365 days. Little salt and sugar despite bp and sugars under control. Eat few nuts everyday to get protein and good fats. Exercise in moderation like walking for few miles according to your capacity. Don't compare with others. Di practice yoga and meditation to reduce day to day stress.

In ayurveda, Hypertension is referred to as Rakta Capa Vriddhi and it sees the vitiation of vata and pitta doshas as the main cause. Mix 1 teaspoon of onion juice with an equal amount of honey. Take once a day for 1 week. Upon noticing improvement, continue for several more days. Take sarpgandha vati twice a day. Yogendra ras. Akik bhasm works very good in case of hypertension. Avoid salty diet. Oily food. Lower your stress. Do pranayama early morning.
