What are your  Ideal test scores for cardiovascular health?

Cardiovascular disease is not simply a high cholesterol disease but an inflammatory disease. 85% Cholesterol is manufactured in your liver. 15% Cholesterol is from animal protein – that is now the food that you eat.

 

The cholesterol myth

Cardiovascular disease is not simply a high cholesterol disease but an inflammatory disease. 85% Cholesterol is manufactured in your liver. 15% Cholesterol is from animal protein – that is now the food that you eat. Raised cholesterol levels are a sign of a lifestyle problem and possibly a specific gene. However, lifestyle modification should be the first priority in reducing cholesterol levels.

 

The causes for high cholesterol are stress, depression, lack of exercise, lack of nutrients, smoking and genes.

All cells contain cholesterol and all tissues can manufacture and regulate it. Cholesterol levels vary during a day and also during seasons – higher in winter and lower in summer. It is also higher after surgery, infection and stress. Bones are filled with cholesterol and would be hollow without it.

In 2000, an article was published in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition where they stated that there was no correlation between consuming more than one egg a day and the risk of heart disease. We know that there an association between high cholesterol levels and coronary heart disease, but we also now know that there is an association between low cholesterol levels, depression, cancer, aggression, amnesia, strokes and your ability to fight infection.

There seems to be a narrow band that represents a healthy cholesterol level in blood and that is between 4.9 – 5.4 mmol/l.

Let us look at the following facts

  • There are ten different compounds in arterial plaque and no saturated fat at all.
  • The majority of heart patients do not have high cholesterol.
  • Only when cholesterol is oxidized it will damage arterial wall – if you have enough antioxidants in your diet, it will prevent oxidation of cholesterol a great deal.
  • Real changes in lifestyle, diet, taking vitamins, minerals and antioxidants are the solution to heart disease.
  • From all the studies we now know, 50% of risks are still unexplained.
  • Statins cause cancer in animals and does not lower risk in women.
  • Statins has a place in high-risk short-term solutions.
  • Statins lower CoQ10 production – patients complain about exhaustion and muscle fatigue.
  • Cholesterol reduction did not lower death rates in men and women.
  • The effect of cholesterol on heart mortality declines with age.
  • Little benefit in lowering cholesterol in patients over 60 years of age.
  • Cholesterol is the precursor and building block of steroid hormones like testosterone, progesterone, etc.
  • We know cholesterol increase with age, because hormone levels drop with ageing.
  • Low cholesterol patients can often complain about depression, weight gain, impotence, fibromyalgia-like pain and can increase risk for gastric cancer.
  • Low Thyroid hormone levels are also associated with raised LDL levels – if you correct TSH – LDL drops
  • The High Sensitive C-Reactive Protein (inflammatory indicator) Test is more important than a cholesterol test (Lipogram) in determining heart disease risk. Chronically elevated levels of Insulin and high stress levels can increase hs CRP ( high consumption of bad carbohydrates -sugar and white flour).
  • Do not take statins to lower high Lp(a) – they do not lower it. Take Vit B3 – non-flush, omega 3/6 and nattokinase.

The latest studies on statins, pointed me into a direction where I believe statins should not be recommended to anyone. There are many natural alternatives without all the side effects. Take the natural route to address high cholesterol.
