What Does Putin Have to Do With Cholesterol?

Hey Comrade…Read this Blog…I am Featured in it and I like that!

Do you want to impress your buddies with some new banter around the water cooler? Are you tired of discussing the latest politics, plebiscites and parties? Well, fasten your seat belts because here are the top 5 facts about HEART DISEASE that I learned from watching Dr Jay’s¬†webinar.

 

 

1. Cholesterol is a natural substance that is necessary for the production and maintenance of healthy cell membranes, hormones (like testosterone, cortisol and estrogen…you like your sex hormones, right?), and brain cells (which are very important to most people). No matter what you think of your co-worker’s intelligence, even his brain is mostly fat. So here is how you can prove you are smarter than him…give him a multiple choice test…

Hey, Bob, here is a quiz for you…

If the Pope, Barak Obama and Vladamir Putin walk into a bar…what is the fat content of Putin’s brain?

a) 10%

b) 60%

c) 100%

d) 0% Putin’s brain is made of something else

The correct answer is 60%…everyone’s brain is give or take 60% fat, and cholesterol necessary to each one!

2. Cholesterol becomes STICKY when it is oxidized…big word for what happens when a good guy turns to the dark side and joins Darth and the artery plugging StromTroopers as they invade your rebel base! So, in this scenario, who are the under represented, but oh so powerful Rebel Alliance? That is correct…ANTIOXIDANTS…found in veggies and fruits…and by the way, the Rebel Alliance is outnumbered and Darth and the boys are taking command of the galaxy

The Death Star is Fully Operational!!

 

3. Half of all heart attacks occur in people with normal cholesterol levels. Total cholesterol is one of 250 known risk factors for heart disease, and the over reliance on total cholesterol has resulted in 56 million Americans being prescribed statin drugs…which have known and adverse side effects…think of another disease that starts with C…think of blocking the very pathway that makes sex hormones…think of blocking an enzyme that is necessary for muscle growth and function…the heart is a muscle…oh no…did your brain just explode?

This one’s a goner!

 

4. The heart pumps 2000 gallons of blood every day! That is the equivalent of the amount of gas you would use driving a Lexus from Vancouver to Moscow and back 8 times!

This is in Moscow…drive your Lexus there and see it for yourself!

5. Certain nutritional deficiencies contribute to the development of heart disease. These deficiencies can be caused by our higher stress modern lifestyle, air pollution, diet pop consumption (which puts you at a 61% increased risk for cardiovascular diseases)…high sugar modern diet, highly¬†processed food modern diet, and a diet that contains a lot of highly processed sugar…hmmm…aren’t these the same risk factors for a bunch of bad diseases?

How would you like to know how cholesterol is linked to Alzheimer’s and dementia? Stay tuned for another blog…

The good news is that if you are looking for a natural way to defeat the Empire and kick Darth’s butt, you need to get control of the inflammation in your body…inflammation is like Darth’s red light saber…zing…zing…zing…if you are under attack, your cholesterol (Storm Trooper) levels will be sky high!

You need to learn the ways of the Jedi, use the Force…or maybe it is easier to just lose the excess junk in the trunk, exercise, laugh more, eat a whole shwak of veggies every day and super charge yourself with the right supplements. Specifically, if people ate an apple every day, 8500 people could avoid a stroke or heart attack. That is a lot of apples…lets see…365 apples per year for 8500 people…that is over 3 million apples, so I assume that would be good news for apple growers aswell…and just to put it in context, that is the same number of strokes that prescription statins are said to prevent, except that the apple growers don’t see a dime of those sales. Fight Darth with Apples!!

 

You found my weakness!! APPLES!!!!

Words of Wisdome…Stay away from Poutine (and Putin….) Eating a gillion grams of fat doesn’t make your brain larger…

There are also several supplements that you should use to extend your longevity, increase your vitality and energy, even if you do choose to take statins. If you know someone who could benefit from increased health, share this blog post with them PLEASE! I can help get them to their goal!

 

Got Statins?

Lots of people take a class of drugs called “Statins”. This is category of drugs that block cholesterol production in the body, with the intent to lower a person’s cholesterol level. The common name for statins are Lipitor and Crestor.

If you have high cholesterol, you might consider visiting Vancouver Allergy for testing to see if the underlying cause can be identified. Frequently people can (with their Doctor’s approval) stop depending on these drugs. According to The Fungus Link, only 1% of people actually produce too much cholesterol. For the rest of the people who take statins, there is a non-genetic underlying cause….

The problem with statins is that they reduce the level of a critical nutrient in the body, called CoEnzyme Q10. Now, you may not realize this, but the same drug that is recommended to save your life, is depleting you of a nutrient that is vital to life. It is vital that people who take statins ALSO take supplemental CoQ10, especially if you suffer from fatigue, muscle weakness and soreness…did you know that your heart is also a muscle…? It wouldn’t be good for your health if that muscle got fatigued, now would it?

Here is some information regarding this vital vitamin-like substance:

  • it is required..that is REQUIRED…by the liver, brain, heart, kidneys, pancreas…rather important nutrient…would you agree?
  • it strengthens the immune system…also a good thing…?
  • Helps to release stored energy…good…
  • Is an antioxidant…so far…all good…
  • it is absolutely necessary for detoxification of the body…and have you looked around lately? There are lots of toxins out there…
  • Toxicity is not normally observed in healthy individuals or unhealthy individuals…up to 3600 mg/day (wikipedia.com)
  • Blood concentration of CoQ10 is reduced by up to 40% by statin use.

How much should you take??

according to Dr. Graveline, you should take 200-500 mg per day. Natures Sunshine Brand offers softgel caps (oil-based CoQ10 is significantly better absorbed) containing 50mg per capsule. Order yours by clicking here
