September is National Cholesterol Awareness Month and we will be featuring articles on that subject. Elevated cholesterol and its role in cardiovascular disease is very misunderstood. Cholesterol elevation should be taken seriously but not generally for the reasons that we have been brainwashed to believe.
Elevated cholesterol is most often a sign of a liver problem and/or genetic predisposition and does not mean that the majority of people should turn to dangerous drugs like Statins for an answer. In most cases cholesterol levels can be normalized through natural means such a minor changes in diet and key supplements that address liver function and detoxification.
I have often said that Statin drugs are among the most dangerous of all pharmaceuticals due to their copious side effects and the fact that they are so widely prescribed. Medicine has been on a witch hunt against cholesterol for decades and yet this effort has produced no health benefits at all. Heart disease is still the number one cause of death in spite of these fanatical efforts. Since our focus has been on an innocent bystander, heart disease has not been addressed and improved.
Next month we will unravel these mysteries and show you not only the many dangers of conventional cholesterol management but also how you can avoid these many pitfalls and manage your cholesterol through addressing the cause of the problem. Next month will include articles on Cholesterol Awareness Month so check back.
