In this episode of Revolution Health Radio (RHR) we discuss “RHR: The Functional Medicine Approach to High Cholesterol.” The message that “cholesterol is bad and if you have high cholesterol you should take a statin to lower it” is out of date and not in sync with the most recent scientific evidence. Unfortunately, the latest findings have not trickled down to the average primary care doctor—or even the average cardiologist. Today I discuss the six underlying causes of high cholesterol and how addressing those issues can often alleviate the need to take statins.
In this episode, we cover:
The functional approach to high cholesterol
