It has been a trend in the health care industry to continually lower cholesterol levels, primarily using statin drugs. Unfortunately, studies are now revealing that cholesterol levels can be too low, and may begin to cause other conditions, or generally increase the mortality of individuals.
In this video, Dr. Thoma shares more research on the topic of cholesterol levels, as well as recommendations on when you should, and should not be concerned. He also includes recommendations for dietary changes that can have a positive impact in reducing cholesterol without taking statin drugs.
Dr. Thoma is a functional medicine physician in Chesterfield Missouri. His specialty is helping individuals identify the root cause of their health concerns.
Together with his wife, Jennifer, they own PuraWell. PuraWell is a health and wellness company focused on guiding you to take control of your healthcare so that you can live longer, healthier.
