Reduce cholesterol naturally by Reflexology
Metabolism is the process by which your body makes energy from the food you eat. Meals made of 3 macronutrients such as proteins, carbohydrates, and fats. Chemicals in your digestive system break the food into the 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 the metabolism is deranged, then it leads to a high or low level of blood sugar, cholesterol, etc. The presence of high cholesterol in the blood is not a disease, but a metabolic disorder or healing mechanism to heal inflammation (similar to mucus secretion to wash out infection). You can correct it by normalizing the metabolism or correct inflammation. To normalize your high-cholesterol level, you can do natural cholesterol, reducing massage.
Start reflexology massage from endocrine glands that control the metabolic system followed by organ caused/affected by hyperlipidemia.

Massage the organs responsible for Fat metabolism
- Stomach - fat food landing place
- Small intestine - absorbs fat from food
- Liver - Glycogen & Fat storage and production
Massaging the reflex areas of the stomach, small intestine, and liver helps to normalize the metabolism of fat.
If you feel pain, numbness in these areas, then you should give special attention to those areas. A different sensation indicates some minor problem with that specific organ. If that particular point shows any positive change after a massage, then increases the frequency of massage to that location, otherwise, discard that reflex point.
