Mediterranean Diet, Red Rice Yeast, and Guggal for Cardiovascular Disease

Posted by on Sep 9, 2015

Mediterranean diet, and lifestyle; lots of exercise, warm family relations, help reduce heart disease. An alternative to statin drugs I have had very good results with even without any other changes in the variables is the Chinese herbal medicine called Red Rice Yeast. Its available on line at Vita cost, or from any health food store. The brand I have had consistent results with is Solaray. It lowers bad cholesterol. Another product I use, from Ayurveda, is Guggal, which is the resin of a tree related to frankincense. Its interesting, because Guggal clears Ama or Toxic Sludge from the Shrotas, or channels, whereas Bowellia, also a tree resin related to frankincense, removes Ama from the joints and is used for arthritic pain. Guggal is also¬† is used for herbal weight loss, to improve thyroid function, and to lower bad cholesterol (LDL or “lousy” cholesterol).¬† Guardian article on Mediterranean Diet
