  A comparative study of 186 patients, both male and female, with fat deposits in their blood, was done for 4 years. They were divided into four groups. Group A was given 30-40 minutes of foot reflexology daily for 5-6 times a week, along with foot soaking before, and drinking warm water afterward with focus on the brain, heart, lung, liver, gallbladder, stomach, spleen, pancreas, thyroid and the excretory system reflexes. Group B did 25 minutes a day of exercises 4-5 times a week. Group C were given 20 sessions of stimulation by an electrical current to their occipitofrontal area for 15 minutes. Group D were given 300 mg of Lipunthyl daily for 2 weeks, then the dosage was decreased. Group A, B and D reduced their cholesterol. Group C had no results.



Foot reflexology was found to be effective in the reduction of fatty deposits in the blood. However, the results are not completely conclusive due to the study design.
