"My Doctor says that some of my other medications can cause my cholesterol to raise. The first thing to raise was my triglycerides. I am on HIV medications. That is what they say is probably raising my cholesterol. It isn't real high just over the 200 mark. The total cholesterol goes up and down. The triglycerides seems to stay high though. What is the best crystal to use to help bring my triglycerides to a lower level? I've tried green aventurine but it didn't seem to lower my triglycerides. Any suggestions?"
Thank you again for your patience!
Let's look at the crystal side of things for lowering your triglycerides, and a previous post we wrote about this suggested:
"High triglycerides relate to overall heart health, and can be lowered by maintaining a healthy weight and diet. Apatite helps to suppress the appetite, minimizing unnecessary eating. Triglycerides can also be a result of an underactive thyroid, and Iolite helps with hypothyroidism."
From what I could also research, the Chakra associated with triglycerides is the Heart Chakra. There isn't very much on crystals for triglycerides specifically and everything leads back to crystals for cholesterol. However triglycerides and cholesterol are separate types of lipids that circulate in your blood. Triglycerides store unused calories and provide your body with energy and cholesterol is used to build cells and certain hormones.
I thought it may be best to focus on crystals related to the Heart Chakra, overall heart health, hormone health (when you eat, your body converts any calories it doesn't need to use, right away into triglycerides. The triglycerides are stored in your fat cells. Later, hormones release triglycerides for energy between meals.) I'll also include some for cholesterol and HIV because you said you were on medication for that which causes the cholesterol and triglycerides to rise.
As many of these are for physical support, I have to include our disclaimer: I am not a doctor and cannot give medical advice. Crystals can complement all forms of therapy and support the energetic body, but are not a substitute for medical advice or treatment.
Heart Chakra and overall Hearth Health:
All of these stones support the heart physically, as well as activating and clearing the Heart Chakra: Amazonite, Amber, Bloodstone, Chrysoprase, Dioptase, Emerald, Garnet, Green Tourmaline, Rhodonite, Strawberry Quartz, Unakite, Zoisite w/Ruby

Chrysoprase, Moonstone, and Watermelon Tourmaline all help to bring balance to hormones.
Carnelian and Bloodstone are both detoxifying and purifying when it comes to issues involving blood. These would both be excellent at helping to lower cholesterol levels. Carnelian is a very powerful crystal that will also help you to stay on track and follow your health care providers suggestions for a healthier lifestyle and diet if they are suggesting this.
Other stones which can provide support:
Now these are a bunch of crystals to look at so I'd recommend taking a look through all of them, seeing which apply to you and then seeing which you're drawn to. Those are the ones you want to go with as they will align with your energy best.
I hope this helps :)
