Is high cholesterol bad for your heart? Your GP will likely tell you it is. The pharmaceutical companies have persuaded the medical profession there is a link. But is there? Bearing in mind statins are an enormous cash cow, is this what’s really going on?
Cholesterol Is An Essential Hormone
Cholesterol is produced by the liver. Its function is to build cells and ensure the body metabolism works properly. It also produces hormones; oestrogen, testosterone and adrenalin. It is converted to vitamin D by sunshine, an essential vitamin for proper bodily function.
Not only does the majority of the population think cholesterol is bad, they also think sunshine is bad.
It’s good to promote these ideas if you want to create fear that can then be harnessed to sell ongoing, lifelong products – like statins and vitamin D supplements. The world has fallen for this myth.
The Mythical Relationship Between Statins And Cholesterol
When we consume excess fat, it creates a viscid fluid in the blood which injures the blood vessel walls, especially the arteries. Cholesterol comes to the rescue by lining the walls, in effect patching up the injuries. When this continues, more and more cholesterol builds up on the walls.
Obviously this build up narrows the blood vessels. This often results in high blood pressure.
Two things are going on here:
First, the indication of high blood pressure can mean you have damaged blood vessels walls due to your diet.
Second, cholesterol is the good guy, repairing damaged blood vessels.
So your hypertension medication maybe misplaced.
Your statins are targeting the wrong problem.
All you need to do is to change your diet.
The pathologists have been trying to tell the medical profession for years that high cholesterol has nothing to do with heart problems. They should know as they are the ones who cut up bodies to see what caused death.
Is High Cholesterol Bad For Your Heart, Your Health?
High cholesterol has nothing to do with your heart health directly. But by narrowing your arteries, because it is repairing the artery walls, it will lead to a lack of blood supply to your body, leading to fatigue and an inability to survive normally.
If you take statins and lower your cholesterol, you are limiting your natural ability to:
- build cells
- ensure the body metabolism works properly
- oestrogen, testosterone and adrenalin production
- make your vitamin D
all with a cascade effect
It seems to any sensible, intelligent being who likes to solve problems (aren’t we meant to be intelligent?) that the cause of the problem, ie the high fat intake, is the culprit. When you cut that out, the artery walls repair themselves, the cholesterol lining is dissolved, your blood pressure drops back to normal.
But it doesn’t sell drugs.
What Is The Source Of High Fat Foods?
All animal protein has a high fat content, even if it is ‘low fat’ Most people in the West consume high amounts of animal protein in their desperate attempt to eat the adequate amount of protein (another myth) they are told by dieticians, et al.
By switching to a whole food plant based diet, your overall health and well being can improve. You would still need to limit the high fat foods such as coconut, avocado and nuts, but as they also contain a high fibre content, they are not as damaging as the animal fats. And they contain a wealth of good nutrition.
