Effect of fasting on the health of physical mechanisms covering various aspects of health, such as :
  • Provide opportunities for digestion to rest. Freeing the body from toxins, impurities, and the residue is harmful to health.
  • Blocking food for bacteria, viruses, and cancer cells so that germs can not survive.
  • Increase the number of white blood cells and increase endurance. In the first week of fasting has not discovered the growth of white blood cells. However, starting the seventh day (second week), the addition of white blood cells very rapidly. White blood is a major element in the body's defense system.
  • Balancing acid and alkaline levels in the body.
  • Improve the function of a hormone that is needed in a variety of physiological and biochemical processes of the body. Hormones released by endocrine glands and the pituitary as the body's reaction to various pressures and environmental stress. Deficiency or excess production of certain hormones will have a negative impact on the health of the body. For example when subjected to stress, the hormone that regulates insulin and adrenaline when they're hungry impaired that loss of appetite or even come sooner. Production of the hormone insulin deficiency resulted in the emergence of diabetes, whereas when the body will suffer excessive hyperglycemia. At the time of fasting people will be patient and try to hold grudges and always surrender to God. It will make the normal hormone function so that more harmonious rhythm of life.

This doctrine implies health because fruits and sweet drinks that are ready-made fuel that can be immediately absorbed by the body to restore energy after a day the body is not supplied by food and beverages. Glucose contained in fruits and sweet drinks is the main energy source for cells of the body. Effective glucose needed when the body requires energy input needed. Suggested meal is not solely to gain power of the prime pilgrimage during fasting, but also implies that the necessary preparations for fasting during the fasting work productivity and daily activities are not disrupted. At the time of fasting and meal supplies need to strive to fulfill the nutritional elements needed by the body, including six kinds of nutrients are carbohydrates, proteins, fats, vitamins, minerals, and water.

Cholesterol is a soft waxy substance and is an essential body fat (lipid), that is carried around the body in the blood, it can be found in all the body's cells. Only a small amount of the cholesterol in the body comes from your diet, it is mostly made in the body by the liver. The dietary cholesterol is found in food that comes from animals such as meat, poultry, fish, seafood and dairy products, especially egg yolks.

Cholesterol is required by the body to keep itself healthy, but too much cholesterol circulating in the blood is a health risk.

As cholesterol is not water-soluble it must bind to special proteins before it can be carried in the bloodstream, known as apoproteins. Once coated they form a package called lipoproteins, there are 2 main types of lipoproteins:
  • Low density lipoproteins (LDL), commonly known as bad cholesterol. LDL is the major cholesterol carrier in the blood. If there is too much LDL in the blood it can build up on artery walls. A high level of LDL cholesterol may give you an increased risk of coronary heart disease.
  • High density lipoproteins (HDL) commonly known as good cholesterol. HDL is actually good for maintaining the health of the heart and preventing the narrowing of the arteries (atherosclerosis) because it appears to carry cholesterol away from the arteries and back to the liver for disposal.
This is why the ratio between LDL and HDL cholesterol is important. Usually the body maintains a balance of cholesterol, making more if it needs it and getting rid of any excess. But sometimes this balance goes wrong. LDL levels can be lowered by eating a low fat diet and HDL levels can be raised by exercising.

What causes cholesterol to be high?

In the UK too much saturated fat in the diet is the most common cause of high cholesterol. Saturated fat encourages the body to make more cholesterol than it needs or can get rid of. In the UK we tend to eat a lot of saturated fat and this is probably why we have the highest rates of coronary heart disease in the world.

If you are a cigarette smoker you have about twice the risk of having a heart attack than a non smoker. If you also suffer with high blood pressure and high cholesterol, the 3 factors together multiply the chances of you suffering a heart attack by more than 8 times.

However, high cholesterol levels can occasionally run in families, and in this situation it is usually because the body does not cope well with normal amounts of cholesterol being eaten.

What happens if my cholesterol level is high?

If there is too much cholesterol in the blood and the body can’t get rid of it, the unused cholesterol can builds up in the artery walls, leading to the hardening and narrowing of the arteries. This narrowing of the arteries slows down the flow of blood to your heart, this condition is known as arteriosclerosis. In severe cases the blood supply can be cut off completely, it is at this point a heart attack occurs. If an artery in the brain becomes blocked this can trigger a stroke to occur.

How do I know if I have high cholesterol?

You don’t normally know if you have high cholesterol, as there are no symptoms of it. If anyone in your immediate family has suffered a heart attack before the age of 50, you have diabetes, are overweight or smoke or you believe you have an increased risk of heart disease or stroke then you should go to your doctor and ask to have your cholesterol levels checked. Cholesterol is diagnosed from a blood test. We do have two different type cholesterol tests available on this website, for more information on these cholesterol tests or to buy click here.

How can I reduce my cholesterol levels?

High cholesterol is a major factor of heart disease, but it can be treated through diet and exercise. The first step in lowering cholesterol levels is to change your diet. Most individuals can reduce their cholesterol level 15-20% by reducing the intake of foods high in cholesterol and fat, especially saturated fat.

Food to avoid or limit:
  • Fatty meats but if you do eat them cut off all the visible fat.
  • Sausages, goose and duck.
  • Pies and pastries.
  • Fat or oil in cooking.
  • Prawns, shrimp and fish roe.
  • Fried foods
  • Dairy products such as full milk, cream, cheese, butter and ice cream.
  • Egg yolks, limit to 2 a week.
  • Cakes, crisps, biscuits, sweets and chocolate.
Try to grill or steam meats instead of frying or roasting but if you do roast, place meat on a rack to allow the fat to drain off. When frying choose a vegetable oil, such as sunflower. Healthier foods which you could try eating are as follows:
  • Fish, especially oil rich fish such as sardines, salmon, mackerel, pilchards and trout. This type of fish contains Omega-3 fatty acids and they are thought to lower LDL cholesterol.
  • Poultry (chicken, veal or turkey) but remove the skin.
  • Low-Fat dairy products, use semi skimmed or skimmed milk, low fat yoghurts and mono or poly-unsaturated spreads.
  • Foods high in polyunsaturated (found in nuts, seeds and vegetable oils) and monounsaturated (found in olive, rapeseed, walnut oil and avocado) fats.
  • Fruit and vegetables, you should eat at least 5 portions every day.
  • Garlic
  • Wholegrain breads
  • Cereals\
  • Baked beans and red kidney beans
  • Pasta and rice
If buying low fat foods ensure they are labelled "low in saturated fat" If you smoke you should give up and try to maintain a healthy weight. Regular exercise may also help lower fat levels, try brisk walking, swimming or cycling. However, if you’ve not taken exercise in some time, are over 40 or have been ill, you should check with your doctor before doing anything too strenuous. If these methods fail to lower your cholesterol levels, your doctor may prescribe a drug which will help to lower your cholesterol.

How can I avoid having high cholesterol?

The only way to try to prevent high cholesterol is to stick to a healthy balanced diet, low in saturated fats, get regular exercise, quit smoking and maintain a healthy weight.
