Hi,
Thanks for asking query on HCM,

Firstly don't worry, follow suggestions for 3 month and you would feel much better.

Proper Diet can help you to lower your cholesterol levels by 40 to 60 per cent. Foods rich in fibre, soya, nuts, healthy oils, oats, red wine, salmon, fenugreek, garlic, beans are good for you.Limit intake of foods containing saturated fats, trans fats, and dietary cholesterol.Take olive oil in food.Avoid fats like butter,Cheese etc.Any form of saturated fat is not good for you.Alfalfa has ability to deal with artery-related diseases. They are capable of clearing arteries that are congested with cholesterol. So include that in your diet. Garlic is extremely beneficial for people suffering from high cholesterol. Two cloves of garlic on a daily basis can completely neutralize the effect of high cholesterol in the blood.The bark of the Arjuna tree can be taken and consumed in the form of powder. They have the capability to dissolve cholesterol and prevent heart blockages. This should be consumed earlier in the morning, before breakfast with lukewarm water..
