Risk markers for stroke or heart attack

Very often, we associate stroke and heart attack with high cholesterol profile.

Yet, modern research and epidemiological data tell us otherwise.

The majority of people(>60%) who have a heart attack have a low or normal cholesterol profile.

The highest risk factors are inflammation, weak tissues, and chronic stress.

You can find out your risk with a blood test to measure-

C-reactive protein (CRP)

Homocysteine

Vitamin D status

Cortisol and DHEA test ( from hormone profile test via saliva or 24hrs urine).

Supplementation with the following will help to reduce CRP and homocysteine:

  • Phytolec
  • PhytoEFA
  • Phyto-nzyme
  • Homocysteine response (important for those with gout too!)

I shall share with you more practical remedies during the upcoming herb fest.
