chiropractic care experienced normalization of his lipid panel following six months of chiropractic adjustments. Fascinatingly, no other interventions (i.e., diet or exercise modifications) were implemented within this time period.
The patient first came into the chiropractor's office
with a chief complaint of high cholesterol and was taking more than 10
medications to manage his condition. With a past history of heart attack
and angioplasty, he was considered "high risk." One month prior to
initiating chiropractic care, he had a lipid panel drawn indicating
abnormal levels of cholesterol, LDL, HDL and triglycerides. According to
an interview with the patient on YouTube, he heard that
chiropractic could help lower cholesterol and gave it a try, because he
wanted to get off of his prescription meds.
