Did you know that the #1 drug prescribed in America this year was a statin drug for lowering cholesterol?
In fact, in the top 10 most often prescribed drugs, TWO of them were cholesterol-lowering.
Additionally, for the past 20+ years, these cholesterol-lowering statins have been the most often prescribed drugs and biggest moneymakers!
Yet, the rate of heart disease has NOT gone down in the past 2 decades. In fact, it keeps going higher and higher.
And the older you are, the worst the statistics are.
And this includes both men AND women!
So the question is:
- Why are things only getting worse, when more and more people are taking these “cholesterol lower drugs”?
- Why aren’t these drugs working to save lives?
- What’s the REAL cause of high cholesterol and can you fix it, naturally?
My Parent’s Story
So to make a long story short, back in 1998 both my parents have prescribed these toxic, statin drugs. During that year they felt so horrible with all the side effects… so I got them off the drugs and really pushed for a natural lifestyle.
They were already eating well, but I turned it up a notch and got super strict.
My dad has always exercised, but I increased it with him and added it with my mom.
The good news is that their cholesterol levels did improve, but not by much.
And that’s when their doctors said “see, you need to get back on the drugs.”
But I refused! I had to find a solution.
And I mention this story because if you’ve had similar challenges yourself and haven’t gotten the results you were hoping for and you’re confused or frustrated – you’re not alone.
In fact, this is typical …
The REAL Cause Of High Cholesterol
And what I discovered during the next few months when researching this topic, because I was new to it back then,…
Is that the REAL cause of high cholesterol is the negative change in your hormones, due to aging.
It happens to women almost instantly, because of menopause… While more gradually with men due to the negative hormonal changes of aging.
And this explains why young people in their teens and 20’s …. eat junk, don’t rest enough or even exercise and yet, their cholesterol levels are still healthy …
This is because they have good hormone levels, which quickly help eliminate excess cholesterol and more importantly, repair your organs and blood vessels.
But don’t worry, or lose hope and think you can’t fix this because you’re getting older …I’ll show you in a minute that you can easily and quickly fix your cholesterol problems, naturally … without drugs, restrictive diets or crazy exercise programs.
The “High Cholesterol” Myth
However, the other problem with these cholesterol-lowering drugs is that they only focus on “lowering cholesterol”.
You don’t want that.
Cholesterol has many benefits.
Low cholesterol can be just as bad as high. Low cholesterol causes depression, low sex drive, and earlier death.
What you want to do is improve all of your lipids and the ratios.
This includes having
- HEALTHY cholesterol levels (not low or high)
- Optimized HDL/LDL ratios
- Lower fatty Triglycerides
- Improved Homocysteine levels.
Blame It On Your Liver
The next problem with aging is that our livers aren’t as strong as they used to be. Getting older, taking prescription drugs, alcohol, toxicity in our foods and so forth, all make the liver and kidneys weaker.
And most people don’t know, but 80% of your cholesterol is made IN your liver!… it’s NOT from the foods you eat.
This is why diet changes don’t usually make a big improvement. The problem is INTERNAL!
So in addition to improving your lipid levels and ratios, you ALSO want to detox, cleanse, repair, and strengthen your liver.
Here’s How To Fix Things
As I learned more and more, I started implementing all of these changes with my parents. I basically gave them specific nutrients that an “aging” and “mature” body needs, so it can help heal itself from within … naturally!
Remember, your body is a self-cleaning and self-healing organism … IF you give it what it requires!
And when you do, your body helps fix all the years of “damage” or “neglect.” Your hormones will start to improve, you’ll have more energy and feel younger.
