Doctors Use New Acupressure Technique to Lower Cholesterol

EFT, a do-it-yourself acupressure technique alters blood chemistry associated with unhealthy lipid levels (cholesterol and triglycerides). EFT balances the body’s energy meridian system, and in turn lowers harmful LDL cholesterol levels without drug intervention. This self-healing tool reduces triglycerides and improves beneficial HDL cholesterol levels. Furthermore, EFT enhances one’s ability to adhere to diet, exercise and lifestyle changes that are necessary to ongoing cardiovascular health.

San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) May 12, 2006 -- A new drug-free treatment option is available for the 107 million Americans currently diagnosed with high cholesterol. Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) was initially designed to accelerate and improve the psychotherapy process and it quickly became a popular stress reduction tool. As people reduced their stress levels with EFT, many reported a reduction in their cholesterol and triglyceride levels. Excessive levels of these fatty blood deposits are medically linked to high levels of stress, poor diet and inactivity. All three risk factors can be managed with this universal acupressure tool.

High cholesterol and triglyceride levels significantly increase the risk of cardiovascular disease, America’s leading cause of death. Most doctors recommend a low-fat diet and exercise as the first step in lowering cholesterol, with the next step being medication. More than 30 million prescriptions for cholesterol lowering drugs are prescribed each year as people struggle to overcome this significant health challenge.
