Let's Talk About ... Cholesterol

It is important to manage cholesterol levels as a preventative measure, especially, those who are predisposed to high cholesterol. As part of your holistic regime to well being, the onus is on you to manage/cut back on your LDLs by reducing or eliminating ingredients that increase LDLs in your diet.

 

Managing your cholesterol can be done by introducing some ingredients into your meals. These ingredients bind cholesterol with fibre and eliminate through the digestive system. Some of these ingredients contain plant sterols and stanols which block the body from absorbing cholesterol.

Read To Empower Your Self - Dr Marilyn Allen PhD

Books, glorious books. Read something for at least an hour a day, preferably something positive to program and strengthen your mind.

Psychologists say that 86% of our self talk is negative and it goes undetected by the conscious mind. Listening to podcasts or audio books is an option, as well as watching positive programs. YouTube has such programs, Amazon sells audiobooks, Wordpress has blogs.

Minimise negativity in your life, for instance, watching programs or listening to people who trigger negative emotions in you. Be strong enough to live your truth, not be dragged into someone else’s toxic agenda which might drain you and make you lose your direction. Feed your mind and grow your emotions in a positive way. Never stop learning.

Nourish Yourself From Within - Dr Marilyn Allen PhD

It is essential to nourish your self from within. All emotions have their place, some, a natural response to what is happening, some to protect us, some to make us contemplate, some to trigger our moral code. Elevating your self worth and a strong sense internal support system is key to self validation and thence nourishment. Work on your positive thinking, well being activities, good nutrition, generosity and kindness. Though it might take time, you will develop inner strength and need less external validation.

Consciousness - Marilyn Allen PhD

Consciousness includes human processes, and exists outside space and time. Many types of mind-to-mind or mind-to-object experiments have been rigorously and meticulously conducted for years with statistical significance though are often dismissed or ignored by mainstream science because of various concepts which are foreign to mainstream science’s view of objectivism e.g. non-locality actions and the possibility of mind-matter interactions. Ever heard of the Quantum Holographic model? We must try to evolve to the next level through change and adaptation. Nature evolves in one direction only. We must all remain open to new knowledge. Ignoring by lack of understanding or wilful neglect is no longer a choice.
