Debunking the myth Statin Drugs Lower Cholesterol
Here is an article sure to make your hair stand up on your head.
I have covered these dangers of statins with other health professionals on my show for years. Do you use a statin drug to balance your cholesterol? How does it feel to be a test dummy? That’s how I would feel if I was told this medication could help lower my cholesterol and help me become healthy only to find out it cannot and has never been shown to do either. However, it has been shown to help you become less healthy.
Muscle cramps, robbing you of vital nutrients, the very nutrient we need to protect our heart, CoQ10.
Let’s see, my cholesterol is not healthy by government guidelines, a doctor tells me to take a medication that has been proven to detract from my health and I am suppose to feel confident to go back into the world as if I’m now healthy?
A doctors lack of knowledge of the benefits of specific nutritional tools to balance cholesterol and being pushed, swayed, influenced- pick the word that works for you- by big pharma does not give me the confidence to put my health into their hands.
I will ONLY consult with an MD who has gone outside of their two hours worth scope of knowledge about nutrition in medical school. A professional who has a strong understanding of nutrition, an integrative doctor, nutritionist can guide you toward health you may have not experience since you were a teenager.
If this article doesn’t contradict and confuse you about what the “experts” are telling you to do now as the protocol to use when using or being prescribed a statin, I don’t know what will.
The nation’s leading heart organizations released new guidelines on Tuesday that will fundamentally reshape the use of cholesterol-lowering statin medicines, which are now prescribed for a quarter of Americans over 40. Patients on statins will no longer need to lower their cholesterol levels to specific numerical targets monitored by regular blood tests, as has been recommended for decades. Simply taking the right dose of a statin will be sufficient, the guidelines say.
