Introduction: The initial and most common cause of death in the world is believed to be cardiovascular accidents, which are associated with hyperlipidemia – a critical, yet controllable factor leading to such accidents. The connection between the metabolism of lipids and a wide range of diseases, the complications caused by chemical medicines, and the ever-increasing attention toward natural treatments all emphasize the necessity of further scientific deliberation on the viewpoints of other medical schools, including complementary medicine. This review article seeks to interpret hyperlipidemia from the perspective of Persian medicine.
Materials and Methods: Using the keywords associated with hyperlipidemia to collect data in several verified scientific, medical, and Persian medical resources, this research was conducted based on the library research method. The data were assessed and used to present theories.
Results: Hyperlipidemia is mainly diagnosed by laboratory findings and therefore does not often have very clear clinical symptoms. Persian medicine, however, links this disease with many causes, confirming the roles of the liver, the heart, and the stomach to be of high significance in the prevention and treatment of this condition, along with the principles of health preservation and quadratic digestions.
Discussion: Hyperlipidemia is a condition caused by the imbalance of humors in the veins, which, in turn, creates extra thickness and sliminess in the blood viscosity. In cases such as diseases and other occasions, this condition can be rendered as the recovering reaction of the body’s vital energy. Focusing on the perspective of Persian medicine is an effective solution to prevent and remove interferences in the treatment process.
