High Cholesterol is a Myth
Did you catch the Dr. Oz show in which Dr. Sinatra and nutritionist, Jonny Bowden, explained the myth of high cholesterol? The pharmaceutical companies have everybody brainwashed, including doctors, that cholesterol is the damaging factor that causes heart disease. It’s just not that simple. Lowering cholesterol without regard for its value or healthy ratios is like lowering the fuel in your gas tank to go faster and farther. Our bodies cannot function without cholesterol. We make our sex hormones and our adrenal and stress hormones from cholesterol. The metabolism of cholesterol is involved with our brain, nervous system and muscles. When doctors prescribe drugs to lower cholesterol, these drugs interfere with the healthy metabolism of brain, nervous system and muscles. When the cholesterol levels get low, we experience the side effects in these targeted body functions. We become brain fogged, lose our memory and experience dementia. When the cholesterol is too low in our nervous system, we have neuropathy and neuritis in our joints and we experience joint pain and arthritis. In our muscles, we experience muscle weakness and wasting. Statistically, it has been proven that only one woman in 100 may benefit from a statin drug. For all practical purposes, it does not make any sense to mass medicate women for the possible benefit of one. These drugs harm countless people with absolutely no health benefits. Drug companies will go to great lengths to preserve the myth of statins benefitting the lowering of cholesterol and the prevention of heart disease for one major reason, collectively being that statin drugs are a $30 billion market. We can lower and maintain healthy cholesterol levels with an Indian herb called Amla. In a recent study, a very unique and highly standardized Amla was able to increase HDL, the good cholesterol by about 15%, and lower the LDL, bad cholesterol by 14%, and the triglycerides by 24% within a three month period and no side effects.
