Every aspect of our live is connected by an infinite number of fibers and whether we are aware of some or not, they hold our world together in miraculous ways. One could say “every thing and every one is connected” Even our body and internal digestion system is dependent upon those fibers.
Fiber is one of the most important elements in lowering our body’s cholesterol. A plant based diet is rich in fiber and can keep the body’s digestive stream flowing in a healthy and balanced way. Anyone depleting their body of fiber by eating a low fiber diet is not only creating a more acidic environment inside their digestive track but is stressing the body in ways that can lead to certain dis-ease.
Tips to lower your cholesterol:
1) Eat a more fiber-rich diet.
2) Eat more probiotic foods such as cultured non-dairy yogurts, fermented alive foods, fresh sprouts and possibly add some good quality living probiotic suppliments into your diet. Keep your flora garden rich and blooming. Remember 80% of your immune system is dependent on the health of your internal flora.
3) Make sure you’re getting enough enzyme rich foods in your diet by sprouting your own seeds and if needed, supplement with a good live blend of digestive enzymes.
4) Exercise on daily basis. Even a long walk after eating is helpful for your digestion and lymphatic system.
5) Take nice deep breathes throughout your day.
