Through Health Coaching, we meet patients and clients every day who suffer from high blood pressure or high cholesterol. Many people treat the high cholestesterol or the elevated blood pressure without ever getting to their, personal and true cause for both conditions.
There are many causes of elevated blood pressure. Some people have high blood pressure because of elevated calcium or low levels of magnesium to block calcium from causing stronger heart contractions which can increase the pressure of the blood flow driving through the arteries. For some people, bone density changes can elevate calcium in the blood and trigger this.
Some people have elevated cholesterol because their blood sugar issues are triggering an enzyme in the liver to make more cholesterol. Others have it because they have elevated stress or inflammation which might be triggering the body to make more cholesterol in order to make the hormone cortisol which is made from cholesterol. Believe it or not, estrogen and testosterone are also made from cholesterol.
LDL and HDL are NOT cholesterols. LDL stands for Low Density Lipoprotein. This is a protein which transports cholesterol. HDL is a high density lipoprotein transporter of cholesterol. There is only one type of cholesterol. Understand your cholesterol and lipid panel in a consultation.
There are tens of conditions and lifestyle issues that can elevate blood pressure and many more causes for elevated cholesterol. Most patients lack a researcher who will help them find their cause!
