High cholesterol levels along with high blood pressure (BP) levels are associated with the risk of stroke or heart attacks. A cholesterol reading of above 6mmol/L is regarded as high and the balance of HDL to LDL (different cholersterol markers, which can be measured via a simple blood test) is also important. Obtaining a good ratio and reducing overall cholesterol levels can be aided with changes to diet and lifestyle. 120/80 is considered to be the normal range for blood pressure. If BP levels are raised this can lead to a restriction if your arteries, possibly resulting in further health risks such as heart problems. Keeping BP and cholesterol levels low can be helped by diet, supplements or lifestyle factors. There are many 'friendly foods' which may be beneficial, to find out more please contact me.

Generally menopause occurs in women between the ages of 45 and 55, although this can vary. The menopause happens in three phases; peri-menopuase when periods tend to become lighter, this is followed by the menopause, when the ovarian function declines and periods stop. The last phase is the post menopause which begins twelve months after your last period. Many symptoms can occur during these three phases such as, hot flushes, anxiety, thinning hair, insomnia and many emotional ups and downs. However with dietary and lifestyle help these symptoms may be minimised. To find out more please contact me.
