Cholesterol. Does the word scare you? It strikes fear into many of my patients when I bring it up. When too much cholesterol is in the bloodstream we need to be concerned about our heart health.
Cholesterol has important responsibilities in the body. Let’s spend time understanding why cholesterol is essential to our body and how we can create the best balance.
Cholesterol’s Job in the Body
Cholesterol is necessary for the formation of cell membranes and the creation of nerve cell coverings. It is also the backbone for the manufacture of steroid hormones which are necessary for vital functions.
Examples of our steroid hormones are sex hormones (female and male) and our stress hormones. The female hormones are estrogens and progesterone, and the male hormone is testosterone.
Cortisol, a steroid hormone also known as the stress hormone, is responsible for managing stressful events, regulating blood sugar levels and reducing inflammation. Finally, cholesterol is needed to produce the steroid hormone aldosterone, which balances water and salt in the body.

Fat and cooking oils have been getting a lot of attention recently in the natural health and food industry. Even the FDA has jumped on the bandwagon condemning trans fats and removing cholesterol restriction recommendations entirely. But the outdated beliefs that fats make us fat is still in the forefront of many people’s minds…
The proof? Just look at all the low fat products still lining the shelves of our supermarkets today. The common misconception that eating fats will make us gain weight is so deeply ingrained that even when presented with the evidence most people just can’t seem to shake the notion that fat=fat!
In this 2 part series, Dr. Budweiser, founder of Weiser Living will separate FATS from FICTION!
He will discuss the following topics!
How Low Fat Made Us Fat
Busting The Myth That Fats Make Us Fat
Unsaturated Vs Saturated Fats
Cholesterol – Separating Fat From Fiction
Essential Nutrients Found In Good Fat
