Over and above any side effects of statins themselves, consider this: unless the patient has a genetic condition causing the liver to overproduce cholesterol, the main reason for higher levels of cholesterol is more damage inside the body that cholesterol is designed to repair. If your cellular damage is high enough to require more cholesterol to fix it, and you artificially reduce the quantities available with a statin drug, where are you? You're left with less cholesterol than you need to do the job. If you're repairing cracks in the living room wall and your wife tells you to stop buying so much plaster, you end up with cracks that won't get repaired; and will probably get worse as time goes on. Having your city reduce the amount of water available to your fire department to less it needs to put out the fire in your house does nothing but let your house burn to the ground. And statins do nothing but leave damage in your body unrepaired. Dang stupid, if you ask me. Improve your diet so you stop causing the damage in the first place, and cholesterol levels will return to normal all by themselves.
Eat 7-10 raw organic eggs every day. Also raw milk, raw honey, raw unsalted butter and most importantly eat raw pastured organic meat. This is the cure of ALL human illness. Look at what the elite eat, steak tartar, caviar, sushi, sashimi, carpacheo etc. Eating a plant based diet will age you very fast as plants defend themselves against non ruminating animals using complex chemical poisons and anti nutrients. Humans have a carnivores digestive system similar to a dogs.
First of all , what makes people think that their body is too stupid to hnow how to regulate it's own cholesterol? And if high cholesterol was a problem, wouldn't your body have figured that after 100,000 years of experience? The thinking is shallow,and not well thought.
Forget the fact of actual harm.
Thank you so much, I took lipitor for years and my muscles were deteriorating but i didn't know that was why! I cannot walk up and down stairs now. I had several falls and ended up having to have back surgery. It wasn't until two years after my back surgery that I found out it was Toxic Myopathy caused from taking Statins. I am so happy this is being exposed. My doctor assured me it wasn't the statins,but I told him I would never take another one. I wanted to be sure my back was okay so went back to Neuro Surgeon and after an MRI and x-ray that doctor diagnosed the Toxic Myopathy and sent me to a Neurologist, he agreed with the diagnosis, then I was sent to a Rheumatologist and he agreed. Also I had to go to the ER once because I couldn't stand and the ER doctor agreed with the diagnosis. My numbers for type II diabetes were coming up and the doctor wanted to put me on Metformin which I refused. I am just eating healthy and taking none of that. Also was taking Lisinopril. I now have learned to control high blood pressure through breathing correctly. I can barely walk and still can't do stairs. I heard that sometimes when you stop taking Statins it will go away, but its been a year. It hasn't gotten much better, but I think I would have been in a wheelchair if I hadn't stopped taking that poison. I do exercise in the water and notice a little improvement.Thank you for your YouTube. I am almost 80 and first thought it was just my age, but I don't think that now. The generation I came up in was of the opinion that what ever the doctor said you should do. I don't believe that now.
Im 40 with very high cholesterol ,I was prescribed Atorvastatin 20mg ,I was taking it 2 months and I stop after been watching all this videos on you tube .Iv change my diet and Im running everyday now and I feel better ,my migraine gone .Im also taking vitamin C ,K2 ,q10
Please show us any study that shows statins " cause heart disease " Get this fucking moron off Youtube. His advice and others is WRONG ! Why is it always the old dinosaurs that come on with outrageous unproven statements ? Look at most of the climate change deniers . Their average age is like 95. Stains alone don't cure heart disease . A lot more lifestyle changes must be made to prevent heart disease. If you think a statin will save you if you don't exercise , are morbidly obese, eat tons of sugar, well, you are going to die young. Of course some people have bad side effects. its the same with any drug. I've been on Crestor for a decade . ZERO SIDE EFFECTS.
Sure buddy. Thats all we need . That is great news for the morbidly obese of the USA. Don't worry , you don't need to lose weight or exercise or eat healthy . Just take these supplements and irie, irie mon, don't worry about a thing. Cause , every little thing is gonna be alright ! LOL
You should had stayed away from doctors and you wouldn't had to worry about cholesterol or your lifestyle and your diet. They don't have control over your health. You need to know that MDs. are in bed with Big Pharma and all they were trying to do is lower cholesterol numbers that changes over the year with drugs with alot of side effects. I'm going to be honest with you that when my mom took Crestor, her back hurt and she couldn't lift heavy things. Well, when she quit taking them, her back pain disappear. Why? Because it's the side effect of Satin that also gave her Alzheimer's disease. If I had a chance, I would had filed a lawsuit against her doctor and the drug companies for damages. Yes, diet and lifestyle are important, but remember that everyone is different and changing your diet should not be considered as a mandatory for everyone.
Let's see. The known toxic drug is prescribed. Money is made. The patient gets more problems. The patient seeks more medical care leading to much more money going to the medical industry. Repeat until bankruptcy and or death of patient.
It sounds to me like there is a perverse incentive going on.
Just went to my doctor today and asked him about Statins . He said don't stop taking them, that all those so called doctors on YouTube are just feeding you crap. I'll listen to a real doctor any day. Oh, and i get my statins from Wal-mart, not the doctor.
I do not know one single person taking these drugs who feels better.
ALL of them feel WORSE.
Muscle pain that causes disability is not something you should be taking.
Just WHY would our governments want us to live longer, when it would cause the social security system to crash?
They want to kill people off and faster, simple as that.
I was prescribed a statin after stent surgery, and in only ONE month, I was getting brain fog and I could NOT remember a simple pop culture question list I use to test my memory from time to time. I went OFF the statin, and in just days, my memory is back!!! YEA!
I am reading a book which is mind blowing, it is called Seeds of Destruction by William F Engdahl. The early chapters highlight eugenics, population control and that The Rockefellers were obsessed by this. They were funding ways to decrease population, sterilisation without the recipient knowing. Drug experimentation. This vid seems to me to be the ideal way forward to remove people, and achieve their wishes.
The other day I had a check up...b.p 135/70 ...pulse 60 ...I am 65, a bit overweight but non smoker, regular exerciser.... 2 days later, without informing me of my bloods analysis, cholesterol levels etc... I got a letter advising Statins. After viewing this vid and others of a similar theme, they can shove the statins where the sun don't shine !!
I had severe heart attack in July 2011.Took Statins for one year and Stopped it for ever .No Cardiologist supported my decision.Now I am happy and healthy.I MAY BE ONE OF THOSE VERY FEW WHO ARE NOT TAKING STATINS EVEN AFTER HEART ATTACK NOW WRITING BOOK HAPPY HEART MANTRA
This man is a troll. Scare mongering. He refuses to take his medication and trying to get others off statins. He doesn’t look sane to me if you look at his eyes. Give it a rest Grandad and leave it to the health professionals yeah.
on these for many years, muscles started getting stiff then weak and eventually muscle spasms and then severe cramp it got where I could barely clean myself after going to the toilet without my back cramping up, take note what this chap says, its true
1998 QUAD by pass for 18 years on statins & aspirin 2017 severe angina doctors miss diagnosed angina for severe heart attack angiogram placed 3 tents in my heart havent been the same since gave me stronger statins called ato z made things worse along with blood thinners &ace inhibitor & blood pressure tablets got rid of BP TABLETS got rid of STATINS slowly weaning off ace inhibitors WHY ?? BECAUSE ALL THESE MEDICATIONS OVER 18 YEARS HAVE TOTALLY RUINED A ONCE HEALTHY BODY Now i have to have a by pass on my legs because statins ruined the leg muscles i am now 69 & i say to you all stay away from statins the best MEDICINES are DIET & EXERCISE I COULD tell you a lot more that happened over the years with statins & aspirin & other medication but it would be a very long list so question every medication you are given or better still get on the WEB and check it out wishing you all good health
What you are saying about statins applies across the board to most of the medications that are prescribed I view them as poison the philosophy is that if you save the patient from imminent death it doesn't matter what you do to their bodies they consider it a trade-off but in fact it is treating symptoms and never curing the disease and it is ignoring the dangerous side effects and damage to internal organs that they cause America is in deep trouble Pharmaceuticals run People's Health into the ground
You did the right thing! If you didn't have any history of heart disease, Statin does more harm than good. My mom took them for over 10 years and she developed Alzheimer's. I lost her two years ago. Statin is bad for your brain. Try natural intervention instead. There are plenty of natural supplements to lower cholesterol. But you want to focus on reducing or lowering inflammation which is the root cause of heart disease, not cholesterol. I hope this help. :)
Do your best to change your lifestyle ten fold. It is a danger going forward after such trauma. Do your best with exercise, diet, activity. Speak with a your doctor about wellness plans. If not, find a plan through the internet or coach/group that can assist you on your journey!
I have been on statin medication for about 20 years and would like to come off it. My doctor keeps telling me when i go every three months for my prescription for them and my blood pressure pill I say that i would like to stop the statin one and he always says that I am safer taking them to protect myself as i get older i am 69 years old. Tonight i have decided not to take it but i am afraid too incase I make myself ill stopping it completely this way. I have bad back pain and i think the statin pill is causing it. Can someone say if they stopped it too on their own like I plan to do. Thanking you
I was on a statin for a handful of years and have been off it for 4 years now (was pre-diabetic and on a high BP med, too). Have been off ALL meds. for 4 years. I educated MY doctor ....better choices with eating, regular exercise AND a customized vitamin (all bioavailable) program based on MY needs was a game changer for me. Feeling the best I've felt in decades, BP within normal range, no longer pre-diabetic, down 20lbs and bloodwork is excellent! Anyone wish to know more, let me know.
I’ve been on statins for 15 years. The 1st side effects were the severe painful cramps lasting 10-15 minutes. Then came the permanent muscle aches. My muscles would never recover from any form of excursion. I thought I was dying. It was by accident that I was able too reverse it all. My doctor wanted to change the statin I was on but asked my to stop taking them for a couple weeks. For a number a reasons I didn’t start taking the replacement statin for almost 4 weeks at that when I noticed dramatic changes in my muscle aches. Most were gone and the cramps were gone as well.
Raymond Francis Author all of this natural medicine bullshit has zero credibility. You're not a doctor and you don't have the slightest clue as to what you're talking about. Get a medical degree and then you can have an opinion on the effects of statins
I can attest to this information. I had 2 heart attacks in 2014. I was prescribed several drugs with Prevastatin as one of them. I noticed right away that the drugs were causing side affects but I was too afraid not to take them. I have changed my diet and exercise regularly. I have weened myself off them. and am taking several great heart supplements that seem to be working well. I have tried several times to go back on the statins but after about the 4th or 5th dose I start to feel dizzy and my upper stomach starts to hurt. And I get chest pains that really concern me. Thanks for this video.
With the release of the confidential papers from the FBI, it's been revealed that statins have been implicated in the assassination of JFK! Not only that but statins were used by the Russians to help Donald J Trump win the 2016 election. And here's something that only astute conspiracy theorists know, the Berlin Wall was made entirely of statins -- that's why so few were successful crossing it.
Dave, if all corporations — and salesmen on YouTube — are all are lying to us and putting our lives in danger, I think we’d both be dead by now. While lying may not be, making money and knowingly putting lives in danger are contradictory behaviors for businesses; a company can’t do both and survive profitably. Our choice seems to be believe nobody, including the fellow who created the video above, or decide who we want to believe. I choose the latter.
Gee, it seems to me that making money is the goal of every business. Whether they are making that money from spreading the truth or spreading lies, promoting the goodness of statins or warning about the dangers of statins, or offering a means to gain eternal reward through strict adherence to some arcane religious belief, it’s all about making money. That much is true.
Tom , the talmudist demons that control Talmud tv, Talmud media, and most of the corrupt billion dollar corporations are pathological liars. They exist to make MONEY..not to spread truth or facts to the goy in society.
Started taking statins again after my Dr. insisted that my cholesterol was high, I was a ticking time bomb about to collapse and die. He advised that I take Co enzyme Q10 with it. I had stopped taking statins because of severe joint, muscle pain and cramps. I could barely walk up the stairs.
Now after 1 month of taking the statins ( with Cardiomax Q10 ), I have spent this whole weekend in bed - bloated, severe inflamation and pain in joints, a bladder infection, severe back pain that seems like a kidney infection that I need to check out at hospital in morning - constant need to urinate. Bathroom stops at least every half hour. The last time I was ill this was was 2 years ago when I took statins. Its shameful that Pharmaceutical companies are reaping massive profits from these and other drugs, while people suffer. They no doubt realise that the side effects of statins will help rake in more profits as victims take other medication for muscular pains, kidney disease and other side effects. Would rather have high cholesterol and a good quality life until I collapse and die than experience prolonged suffering from taking statins.
I would love to believe every word you say about Satins. But when I go off the Satins my cholesterol goes up to over 300, even as high as 470. I hate the Satins, but I am afraid I will have a stroke if my cholesterol stays so high. I have tried diet and nothing seem to bring my totals down to an acceptable number. I am 75 yrs. old, weigh ll5 lbs. and have no medical problems. What should I do.?
If you have high number of small particles of LDL than that is the problem and you need to take step to reduce that. I would recommend that you try Fish oil and Policosanol. Policosanol 20mg. a day with Fish Oil 600mg. a day. It will take at least several weeks, but overtime, it will lower that. You also might like to consider adding Tumeric and Vitamin C to it. Also, did you try to cut down carbohydrates like refined sugars and junk foods? Try consuming more fruits and vegetables and lower the carbohydrates. You may need a better diet and a better active lifestyle. Those two together with Policosanol and Fish oil are far better than Statin with no side effects.
Don't be afraid. When you go to your doctor, ask for an LPP or VAP test which would focus on particle sizes of LDL rather than the numbers. The large one are unharmed while the small tiny ones are the real danger causing strokes or heart attack regardless of total cholesterol whether below 200 or above 200.
Everybody please listen to this guy I've been on statins for years and I have muscle pain that is unbearable to deal with. I'd rather have high cholesterol people who read this please don't ever let the doctor put you on statins for cholesterol
I got rid of my statin pills a month ago and now I'm feeling better than ever. I have Charcotte Marie Tooth Disease, a serious peripheral neuropathy and should never have been made to take them. The severe cramping was almost unbearable but the Doctors didn't see the connection. Now it seems that I, a high-school no-show, know much more about statins than any of my Doctors. That is not only sad but kind of scary.
I went to my doc recently, and she took my blood pressure which was a bit high it was just into the hyper tension zone and without hesitation she suggested statins. I refused. I gave up alcohol started eating more healthy and took up 20 mins a day cardio vascular moderate excersise and my blood pressure and weight have come down to normal range.That was 3 weeks ago.
Good advice. After my first heart attack, 23 years ago, I did not take the advice of Physicians and avoided taking statins. After nine years I began having what I thought was circulatory issues and with no other good options, at the time, I began taking them. I soon developed constant muscle cramps and one day woke up with extreme and overwhelming fatigue. I literally thought it may be my last day on the planet. Next day, I called my cardiologist, who told me it was all in "my head", so I quit and got "better" in a short period of time. A few years later, after my second heart attack, and seemingly out of options, I was put on a different statin. This one gave me peripheral neuropathy, and when I asked my GP about it, she said it was probably the result of a past injury, so I sluffed it off and continued the meds. Lastly, I suffered some cognitive issues and dumped all my meds in the trash. Now 23 years later, with the help of the internet, the wisdom of the crowds, and nutritional options, I'm getting better.

You may be right but i don't see any sources backing up your claims which makes me question the credibility of your statements. Seems more like a rant to be honest. I will be releasing an unbiased analysis of statins within the next week (with scientific evidence) so do check it out
Dear Professor Francis,
I have lost count of the number of people I have sent your message to? And the numbers of times I have received thanks for helping those people avoid injury, and death!...If a man can be measured and thanked by the number of lives he has saved. And the agony avoided by the loss of family members, loved ones, and friends! Then you dear Professor Francis, deserve a "Thanks" that will ring in Heaven, "Bless You For All You Do!"
my GP tried to get me on statins as a maintenance drug. when i mentioned studies indicating the bad side effects, he said that was bad infirmation. so i quit using him. Docs can be very misinformed. take control of your own health.
you are right! I warned my father in law not to ever take them and now I watch as he has been going downhill steadily with balance problems, falling, developed type 2 diabetes, kidney and urinary problems, slurring speech, confusion, memory problems, and more! He can no longer drive.
Statins, I lost over half my Muscles. instead of walking I was crawling about the house. and the pain was all the time, lost my appetite. lost mental ability, I was not me anymore. Been so happy since I Stopped. after a year back to normal. STATINS NO THANKS!!!...
I flushed them down the toilet after 3 weeks. A month later I was strong again (lots of exercise) , sleeping good, and not in a state of confusion. I also ate Avocados one a day, 3 apples a week, and either Pomegranate or watermelon 2-3 x a week. Upped my Vit C, cut the sugars, Cut the carbs.. and my LDL Chol dropped 45% 4 months. Sill my doctor and I fought and he finally quit when I lectured HIM abut the same Pharma biz selling Speed (Ritalin) to children.
if you check the risk benefit ratio statins are beneficial and reduce LDL by 25-60 %. and increase HDL, it is not true that is causes heart diseases, it lowers them instead. yes they do have some side effects but that is better than having a heart attack and dying
My Cardiologist told me my cholesterol was lower than his, and he prescribed me cholesterol lowering medication.
It caused me to forget things. I would go outside and do yard work while I was cooking. I had to free feed my dog because I would forget to feed him. Go grocery shopping and forget to bring money, I was afraid to be left alone I was worried I would cause great damage because of forgetting. I'm fairly young so it isn't my aging I quit the medication and the forgetfulness stopped.
