Case Study.

Hyperlipidemia treatment.

Meet Alexandra, a patient since 2023.

When Alexandra (female, 60’s) joined Index Health, she was struggling with high cholesterol and chronic fatigue. Her health goals while partnering with us included improving her energy levels throughout the day, lowering her cholesterol, and avoiding future statin therapy. She has achieved substantial improvement in her lipid profile and increased her energy levels using a plant-forward diet and supplements.
While this patient’s name and photo have been changed to protect her anonymity, she agreed to share her results here so that future clients can see what to expect from working with Index Health.
