High Cholesterol In Eggs

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Homeopath,
High Cholesterol In Eggs

High cholesterol eggs may not cause heart disease at all

We all know that cholesterol is bad and can cause heart disease, and in recent years, eggs have looked like prime culprits on this front, with many of the most health-conscious among us opting to just eat the white and not the yolk, or else removing them from our diets altogether. Indeed, in the popular imagination, the image of a greasy fried egg is likely to be associated with other cholesterol-packing, heart-stopping dietary bad-guys, such as burgers and deep-fried snacks. But now it seems that the poor old egg may have gotten a bad rap all along, as findings published in the American journal of clinical nutrition by a team of Finnish researchers appears to suggest that the consumption of eggs may not always lead to heart disease, reports medical daily.
While the authors of the study do not deny that cholesterol plays a part in causing heart disease, the key - as is so often the case - would appear to be moderation.
 Additionally, the kind of food providing you with cholesterol can also influence the outcome.
Jyrki viranen, an adjunct professor of epidemiology at the university of eastern Finland, said that the risk of heart disease does not appear to increase with a moderate consumption of cholesterol: moderate intake of cholesterol doesn't seem to increase the risk of heart disease, even among those people at higher risk. Supporting the finish scientists finding, Dr. Robert Eckel, a program chair and professor of medicine at the university of colorado school of medicine, says that he doesn't even mention eggs when outlining the risk factors for heart disease to his patients, as he is more concerned about getting them into the habit of eating in an overall healthy manner than in concentrating on a few particular dietary details: our focus should be on healthy dietary patterns, not specific foods or nutrients. So while for many people eggs have for some time been crossed off the list of safe foods, it seems there are perhaps other more important issues we should be concerning ourselves with: 'i'm a lot more concerned about people eating more fruits and vegetables,' says Eckel in a report by time.
Part of the confusion over eggs seems to lie in the assumption that dietary cholesterol will translate into high blood cholesterol, an assumption that is not supported by the facts according to Dr. Luc djoussé, an associate professor and heart disease researcher at Harvard medical school: dietary cholesterol does not translate into high levels of blood cholesterol.
Dr djousse has researched the connection between heart disease and eggs and says that the current data do not justify worrying over egg consumption. The conclusion seems to be, then, that a moderate intake of foods containing cholesterol is not harmful in itself, however, doctors still strongly advise that we eat a Mediterranean diet, high in fish, vegetables, olive oil, and nuts. The general rule, according to viranen, is that an average of one egg a day is perfectly safe. In practice, this means that it's absolutely fine to eat three eggs for breakfast today as so long as we then opt for, say, fresh fruit and cereal tomorrow - what is important is that, over the week, our intake balances out to one a day.

My heart pulse very lastly run?

Dietitian/Nutritionist,
My heart pulse very lastly run?
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.

Hi lybrate-user, I advise you to take some counseling from a psychologist regarding the situation you are in. Every individual is different and we are sometimes unable to change the situation and therefore its better we recognize the difficulties one is facing in the relationship and make adjustments and deal with better. Counseling and therapy can teach/equip you with such techniques.

What should a blood pressure patient will have to eat daily to maintain their fitness and wealth.

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Ludhiana
What should a blood pressure patient will have to eat daily to maintain their fitness and wealth.
Drugs do not remove the cause, nor do they cure the condition. All drugs against hypertension without exception, are toxic and have distressing side-effects. The fast way to cure hypertension is to eliminate the poisons from the system, which cause it. Persons with high blood pressure should always follow a well-balanced routine of proper diet, exercise and rest. Meat and eggs cause blood pressure to rise more than any other food. The pressure is lowered and blood clotting diminished by taking a diet with a higher fruit content, lower protein and non-flesh diet. A natural diet consisting of fresh fruits and vegetables, instead of a traditional diet, is helpful in getting rid of the poisons from the body. A hypertension patient should start the process of healing by living on an all¬ fruit diet for at least a week, and take fruits at five-hourly intervals, thrice a day. He should take juicy fruits such as oranges, apples, pears, mangoes, guavas, pineapples and grapes. Milk may be taken after a week of a diet of fruits only. The milk should be fresh and boiled only once. The patient can be permitted cereals in the diet after two weeks. Vegetables are also good for a patient of hypertension. They should preferably be taken raw. If they are cooked, it could be ensured that their natural goodness is not destroyed in the process of cooking. Vegetables like cucumber, carrot, tomato, onion, radish, cabbage and spinach are best taken in their raw form. They may be cut into small pieces and sprinkled with a little salt and the juice of a lemon added to them so as to make them more palatable. The intake of salt should be restricted; in any case it should not be taken more than four grams or half a teaspoon per day. Baking powder containing sodium carbonate should also be avoided. Garlic is regarded as one of the most effective remedies to lower blood pressure. The pressure and tension are reduced because it has the power to ease the spasm of the small arteries. Garlic also slows the pulse and modifies the heart rhythm besides relieving the symptoms of dizziness Numbness shortness of breath and the formation of gas within the digestive tract. The average dosage •should be two to three capsules a day to make a dent in the blood pressure. There I an important relation between dietary calcium and potassium and hypertension. It is found that people who take potassium rich diets have a low incidence of hypertension even it they do not control their salt-intake. They have also found that people with hypertension do not seem to get much calcium in the form of dairy products. The two essentia1 nutrients seem to' help the body throw off excess sodium and are involved in important functions which control the working of the vascular system. Potassium is found in abundance in fruits and vegetables and calcium in dairy products. The patient of hypertension should follow a plan of a well-balanced diet in which the constituents of food should be approximately in the following proportion: carbohydrate twenty per cent protein ten to fifteen percent fat five per cent and fruits and vegetables sixty to sixty-five per cent. In this plan one main meal should be based on raw foods while the second main meal may consist of cooked foods. Meals should be taken slowly and in a relaxed atmosphere. Food should be well masticated as the process of digestion begins in the mouth. The dinner should not normally be taken late. TREATMENT CHART FOR HYPERTENSION A - DIET I. Juice diet for 5 days. Use warm water enema daily during this period. II. All-fruit diet for further 5 days, with three meals a day at five-hourly intervals. III. Thereafter, adopt the following diet: - 1. Early Morning: A glass of lukewarm water mixed with the juice of half a lime. 2. Breakfast: Fruits and skimmed milk. 3. Mid-morning: Coconut water. 4. Lunch: Steamed vegetables, whole-wheat wheat tortilla or brown rice and a glass of buttermilk. 5. Mid-afternoon: A glass of carrot juice or orange juice. 6. Dinner: Salad of raw vegetables, green gram sprouts and vegetable soup. AVOID: Meats, sugar, white flour, tea, coffee, condiments, pickles fried foods, and products made from sugar and white flour. Important: Restrict the intake of salt and use liberally garlic and indian gooseberry. B - OTHER MEASURES 1. Exercise, especially brisk walking and yoga asanas like pavanmuktasana, uttanpadasana and shavasana. 2. Hot foot immersion in case of high blood pressure accompanied with headache.
