Reduce cholesterol naturally by Reflexology massage
Metabolism is the process by which your body makes energy from the food you eat. Foods are made of proteins, carbohydrates, and fats. Chemicals in your digestive system break the food into nutrients, which are your body's fuel. Your body can use this fuel right away, or it can store it in your body tissues, such as your liver, and muscles.
If this process of metabolism is deranged, then it leads to high or low level of blood sugar, cholesterol, etc. The presence of high-cholesterol in the blood is not a disease, but a metabolic derangement. You can correct it by normalizing the metabolism back into the order. To normalize your high-cholesterol level, you can do natural cholesterol reducing massage.
