Cholesterol, Statins, The Truth Revealed! Part 1 - MUST SEE!
 
59:44
http://www.TrypnauralMeditation.com/blog for more free articles, tips and cutting edge health advice. Pharmacist and Natural Health Consultant Niraj Naik MPharm attempts to give cholesterol, a substance found in every human being, a fair trial, as it has for many years been accused of causing heart disease. This is a talk held for the Yoga Teachers, Traditional Yoga Association, UK 2011 After many years of research during his work as a pharmacist he felt there was something not quite right with the hypothesis that high cholesterol and saturated fat leads to heart disease. Due to the enormous number of side effects his patients were suffering from after using the blockbuster heart drugs, statins, he was further motivated to seek alternatives to help them. His work uncovers the ugly truth that the perhaps the current cholesterol hypothesis is a blatant lie, with the truth about what really causes heart disease being hidden from the public for the benefit of corporate profit. Part 1: Niraj shows the evidence from both sides, so you can make an informed decision on whether or not cholesterol is to blame for the cause of heart disease. Part 2: Niraj explains the new and probably more likely hypothesis for what really causes heart disease. Unfortunately it is more complex than the culprit being a single molecule, allowing a drug to be designed to alter its function or levels in the blood. Instead a more holistic and natural treatment is necessary for the prevention of heart disease, and some options are revealed that are completely drug and side effect free with compelling evidence to support that backs them.

02:41
Statins have revolutionized cardiovascular disease prevention by helping lower "bad" cholesterol or L-D-L levels in the blood. However, even with lower L-D-L levels many patients are at risk for experiencing heart attack, stroke and other complications. Raising H-D-L or "good" cholesterol levels can help in reducing these risks but finding the right medication to do this has been challenging. A new study that tested an experimental medication from a different class of drugs has promising results. Catherine Dolf explains in this week's JAMA Report.

How to Reduce Bad Cholesterol
 
02:29
Watch more Healthy Eating videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/432350-How-to-Reduce-Bad-Cholesterol A little attention to detail never hurt anyone and may have benefits if it involves monitoring what you put in your body. Reduce your bad cholesterol through simple disciplined measures that are proven to help. Step 1: Disrupt fat with exercise Use exercise to naturally disrupt the metabolism of fat. Eating less helps, but excess body fat will keep cholesterol up until you actually lose pounds by breaking a sweat. Moderate walking and workouts five days a week can raise good cholesterol by 10 percent. Tip The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute of the National Institutes of Health suggests everyone 20 and over should check their levels of bad cholesterol every five years. Step 2: Relax and reflect Relax and reflect periodically, rather than give in to the high tension that constricts arteries and raises blood pressure. If you're constantly stressing out, consider making some long-term changes that will eliminate some of your stres for good. Step 3: Get good greens Drink green tea, full of compounds that can help lower bad cholesterol. Eat leafy greens as well, for soluble fiber that sponges up cholesterol in the digestive tract. Step 4: Consume nuts Consume nuts instead of cheese, meat, or croutons in salads. According to the Food and Drug Administration, a daily handful of 42.5 grams of nuts may reduce cholesterol and the risk of heart disease. Step 5: Substitute fish Substitute meat with fish twice or three times weekly. Consuming fish can profoundly lower cholesterol and triglycerides. Step 6: Choose smart fats Select smart fats for your diet, substituting canola or olive oils for vegetable oil, butter, margarine, lard, or shortening. It's not merely fats, but the kind of fats you eat, that make the difference. Tip Eggs do not drastically increase cholesterol. Step 7: Take drugs to lower cholesterol Take a cholesterol-lowering drug if you have evident cardiovascular risks. Beforehand, consider alternatives like niacin, bile acid resins, and fibrates. Step 8: Commit to win Resolve to make changes, and live a healthy lifestyle. It's your life -- only you can make the changes to lower your bad cholesterol. Did You Know? In 2010, researchers identified nearly 100 gene variants possibly linked to as much as one third of hereditary factors influencing cholesterol production.

DIY Home Made Organic Cholesterol Buster Remedy Having had a previous blood test for Cholesterol Levels & refusing to take Statins my Doc. Called me back for another test 6 months later. These blood tests revealed that my Cholesterol count was still high. This is when I started eating Organic Oats every day Raw one day Slightly cooked the next & So on, sometimes twice a day My Doctor, GP understood why I didn't want to use the Statins And agreed that Only 1 person in 20 Gets any benefit from them !The rest of us simply have to put up with the Side Effects Which only add to some problems we might already be suffering from Or Bring a problem we don't have. I saw my Doc again a month ago following further blood tests He knows I'm into alternative medicine & was Amazed, saying, " I don't know what you're doing, whatever it is, keep doing it" Not only was my Cholesterol back to Normal but Also my Thyroid was now Back in Balance again, After years of upset, which again, I refused to use Pharmaceutical medicines for !! This I put down to Lessening my Intake of Fluoride How do I know the Oats Cut my Cholesterol? Because This is the only thing I changed in my diet Hope this helps You. Go to: http://www.annals.org/content/152/7/478.2.short And Google "Statin Side Effects", I don't want this stuff in my body, thank you very much. "Millions of people take statins to reduce cardiovascular risk, and about 5% of those who take statins develop skeletal muscle symptoms and increased creatine kinase levels (1). A variant in the gene SLCO1B1 increases susceptibility for this side effect by 5-fold (2). We reasoned that variants in other genes could occur in patients who were referred to us because of increased levels of creatine kinase and muscle pain or cramps. Objective: To describe 3 patients in whom statin treatment unmasked an underlying muscle disorder. Case Report: A 70-year-old salesman with no history of skeletal muscle disorders received simvastatin for hypercholesterolemia. He developed myalgia after long bicycle rides; however, he continued to take simvastatin for an additional 2 years. He was eventually evaluated for myalgia and a creatine kinase level of 250 U/L. The family history ... " This from " The Lancet" http://www.thelancet.com/journals/lancet/article/PIIS0140-6736(04)15739-5/fulltext "Statins are possibly the most effective drugs for the prevention and treatment of hypercholesterolaemia and coronary heart disease. They are generally well tolerated, however, they do cause some unusual side-effects with potentially severe consequences, most prominently myopathy or rhabdomyolysis (Damaged Muscles. Ed.) and polyneuropathy. (A neurological disorder that occurs when many peripheral nerves throughout the body malfunction. Ed.) We noted that the pattern of side-effects associated with statins resembles the pathology of selenium deficiency, and postulated that the mechanism lay in a well established, but often overlooked, biochemical pathway—the isopentenylation of selenocysteine-tRNA[Ser]Sec. A negative effect of statins on selenoprotein synthesis does seem to explain many of the enigmatic effects and side-effects of statins, in particular, statin-induced myopathy."
