WSJ: A Cholesterol Conundrum

Most recently, I read an article in the WSJ about Cholesterol. It is a well-known fact that high-fat foods contribute largely to having our cholesterol levels ascend to levels beyond what they should. Ultimately, in the increase of cholesterol to our arteries, the end-result is having clogged arteries that make our blood flow more sluggish to deliver essential nutrients to our essential organs.

But, exercise and eating a healthy diet aren't the only factors to consider upon lowering our cholesterol levels -- it's stress too. To learn more, read the article here.

Doctor's TIPS for STRESS

  • Think positive thoughts!
  • Exercise
  • Eat healthy foods
  • Practice relaxation
  • Make room for yourself!
  • Attempt to create a stress-free (or close to stress-free) home and work environment
