Acpuncture for High Cholesterol Providence, RI
High cholesterol is quite the common medical problem, but it definitely shouldn’t be ignored. Cholesterol levels are in direct relation to triglyceride levels in a person’s body.
High cholesterol levels can lead to heart disease and other coronary issues. If you have cholesterol issues, you might have been prescribed certain medications. Did you know that there are some health experts that say that these types of drugs can sometimes cause people further health complications?
Cholesterol issues are different with everyone, and so treatment is always going to be individual to the patient. There is no increased risk of side effects when patients opt for acupuncture to help deal with high cholesterol. That is one major selling point when it comes to choosing acupuncture as a form of treatment.
The acupuncturist isn’t going to just stick needles in patients and send them on their way in about a half an hour. They are also going to make certain recommendations, and patients with cholesterol problems have to know that they must stop eating so many foods that are high in fat.
Healthy fats are good for your body, and people often don’t eat enough healthy fats because they are too busy eating everything in fried fashion.
Too much iron in a person’s diet has also been shown to contribute to heart disease just like too much cholesterol in a person’s diet. Patients should first address their diet and seek out alternative and natural treatments like acupuncture. If these don’t work, then it might be important to consider medications to lower cholesterol.
Have you heard of patients opting for acupuncture appointments to help them lose weight? Losing weight and following a healthy diet can help with cholesterol levels of course, so you can see how acupuncture can also indirectly impact a person’s cholesterol levels.
Did you know that energy your body creates, when not used, turns into fat? You might not have thought about it this way before, but its true. Acupuncture can help your body release that energy!
There have been many studies over the years concerning acupuncture and its effects on obesity, cholesterol levels and other medical conditions and symptoms. Some results show that acupuncture not only works, but that it start working right away.
That’s not all, however, as the results continue to last for awhile even after a person has stopped receiving acupuncture treatment. Does that mean that acupuncture can reverse certain bodily processes in certain ways?
There are many different health conditions that are medically associated with cholesterol levels that are too high. Are you a smoker? Acupuncture can help people quit smoking, and diabetic patients can also be treated with acupuncture therapy as well. As you can see, acupuncture can address so many different health symptoms from all directions that combine together to make a healthier you.
Along with acupuncture, you can also study Chinese herbs that can help you lower your cholesterol levels. This could be much better than simply nodding your head when the doctor prescribes certain medications to go pick up at the pharmacy.
At the very least, you should research these medications to see what you think about them yourself. Compare them to various Chinese herbs that might bring about the same benefits, and also compare them to the benefits of acupuncture.
Patients are going to be encouraged to exercise often, as inactivity isn’t good for those cholesterol levels. It’s unfortunate that so many people don’t even realize their cholesterol levels are too high. Are you one of those people? An acupuncturist might be able to help.
Acid Reflux, Shoulder Pain, Cholesterol
I recently had an Acid Reflux attack that was so severe I was immobilized. During the night I took about 10 antacids and nothing touched the pain. The next morning when it let up enough for me to get to Dr. Tad, I came in for an emergency visit. The girls in the office got me right in a room and I could just about get myself on the table. When Dr. Tad came in he knew exactly where to place the needles to relieve my pain. Before he left the room I had relief and when I came out of the room I felt like the attack never happened!
Thank you, Dr.Tad and Staff!

Upper Back Pain, Weight Loss, Blood Pressure and Cholesterol
When I came to acupuncture I had a long standing upper right back pain. In addition, I needed to lose weight and I had a desire of being free from pharmacy pills for cholesterol and blood pressure.
After a few treatments, the pain in my back disappeared completely. My weight is now 13 lbs. lower than before and I feel very good about the walking I do daily. My blood pressure is also much better at 120/68 right now. I have had excellent results using herbs instead of prescription drugs for my issues as well.
The miracle of acupuncture is its non-invasive quality and the very speedy results from such capable doctors. Also, as I have come to appointments with new needs for healing, the doctors send me home a very happy, cared for person!
