CHIP (CORONARY HEALTH IMPROVEMENT PROJECT) HELPED 80 FAMILIES IMPROVE THEIR HEALTH In 2010 CHIP, an educationally intensive lifestyle intervention program with more than 50,000 graduates worldwide, has helped eighty families in South Central improve their health simply by diet and exercise. The goal of CHIP LA is to facilitate disease reversal by lowering blood cholesterol, triglycerides, and blood sugar levels by reducing excess weight, lowering high blood pressure, enhancing daily exercise, and by eliminating smoking.The U.S. Surgeon General that some 70% of our so-called Western diseases are largely "lifestyle-related." These diseases relate largely to our rich diet, our lack of exercise, our use of cigarettes, alcohol, and caffeine, our level of stress, and the quality of our support. The diseases include: heart disease, stroke, hypertension, diabetes, gout, arthritis, overweight, certain adult cancers, impotence, diverticular disease, constipation, heartburn, and gall bladder disease.Because nearly 100 million people in the US may have Metabolic Syndrome and not know it, CHIP LA has placed the Metabolic Syndrome video on the web (chipla.org) for people to view what the doctor describes as five dangerous risk factors for heart disease and diabetes. If one has three of the five risk-factors, then it is strongly suggested that you sign up for CHIP LA II. The program aims at a marked reduction of the coronary risk factor levels through the adoption of better health habits and lifestyle choices.
