“Elevated cholesterol levels in the blood are linked to heart attacks and strokes.” Although this statement is mostly true it does not mean cholesterol is the culprit… just a sign that there is something else going on in the body that needs to be corrected.
Although, in most cases, elevations of blood cholesterol levels are due to dietary and lifestyle factors, elevations can also result from genetic factors.
Elevations in cholesterol levels may be the result of low thyroid function (hypothyroidism).
The most important approach to lowering a high cholesterol level is a healthful diet and lifestyle.
Several of the cholesterol-lowering drugs are actually associated with an increase in non-cardiovascular mortality.
Cholesterol-lowering drugs are toxic to the liver and extremely carcinogenic (cancer causing). So why do highly educated physicians prescribe such toxic drugs???
NOTE: All I know is that when I was a Registered Pharmacist the FDA kept taking all the cholesterol-lowering drugs off the market because of toxicity.
Niacin (especially in the form of Inositol Hexaniacinate) has demonstrated better overall results than cholesterol-lowering agents in reducing the risk of coronary heart disease.
Inositol Hexaiacinate was the only cholesterol-lowering agent found to reduce the death rate in The Coronary Drug Project.
Because of its low cost and proven efficacy, Inositol Hexaniacinate should be considered the first cholesterol-lowering agent to try.
Sustained-release niacin should not be used due to greater toxicity in the liver.
The majority of studies that showed a positive effect of garlic used forms of garlic that deliver a sufficient dosage of allicin.
Japanese researchers have found that GAMMA ORYZANOL, extracted from rice bran and rice germ, have a significant cholesterol-lowering effect. Also, Gamma Oryzanol has been shown to increase the HDL (the good cholesterol) as well.
a. Diet high in carbohydrate and saturated fats. Dietary intake of cholesterol is almost never totally responsible for elevated blood cholesterol.
b. Lack of exercise and/or obesity.
c. Endocrine hypo-function, especially hypothydoidism.
d. Genetic pre-disposition (Type IV Hyperlipoproteinemia).
e. Prolonged bowel transit time.
f. Carbohydrate sensitivity.
a. Eliminate refined carbohydrates, alcohol, fruit juices and caffeine containing foods such as coffee, tea, cola, chocolate.
b. Increase raw vegetables and protein like sea vegetables.
c. Limit red meat to no more than one serving per week. Use fish, chicken, lamb, and veal in lieu of red meat. If you like red meat switch to buffalo. It is delicious. Talk to your local grocers to have them carry grass-fed beef also. Grass-fed beef is very high in the Omega-3 oils.
d. Eliminate hydrogenated fats and oils. The only oils you should eat are extra virgin olive oil, fish oils and coconut oil.
e. If you are overweight, eliminate dairy products (except butter) and gluten containing grains. Limit total carbohydrate intake to 60 grams per day.
1. BIO-MULTI PLUS – 1 tablet, 3 times daily after meals.
2. BIO-C PLUS 1000 ? 1 tablet, 3 times daily after meals.
3. M S M POWDER – 1/2 teaspoonful 2 to 4 times daily depending on the severity of symptoms. NOTE: Try to take MSM with your Vitamin C.
4. BIOMEGA-3 – 4 – 5 capsules, twice daily after meals for 1 month, then 4 – 5 capsules once daily thereafter M – F of the week.
Specific Nutrients: When symptoms or condition begins to subside, gradually, as needed, wean yourself from the Specific Nutrients & stay on the Primary Nutrients. If your condition worsens resume taking Specific Nutrients.
In addition to the PRIMARY NUTRIENTS and after the pre-disposing factors indicated above have been addressed, consider the following support:
5. GAMMANOL FORTE WITH F R A C – 2 tablets, 3 times daily with meals.
6. BETA-PLUS – 2 tablets, 3 times daily with meals
7. GARLIC PLUS– 2 tablets, 3 times daily with meals
8. TRI-CHOL – 2 capsules, twice daily with meals
9. PHOSPHATIDYLCHOLINE – 2 capsules, 3 times daily with meals
10. INOSITOL – 1 tablet, 3 times daily with meals
11. LIPID-X – 2 to 3 tablets after a fatty meal (especially if triglycerides are elevated also).
12. COLON PLUS POWDER – 1 teaspoonful in warm water, twice daily in the a.m. & p.m. (or you may use 5 capsules 3 times daily just before meals) if you do not have good daily bowel movements.
13. THYROID (ARMOUR’S) – Use as directed by your physician if axillary temperatures are low (SEE: ARMOUR’S DESICCATED THYROID) INSTRUCTIONS
NOTE: GIVE THIS PROGRAM 2 MONTHS BEFORE RECHECKING BLOOD CHOLESTEROL LEVELS.
When your cholesterol levels return close to the optimum range (around 200), eliminate all the products in the Specific Nutrients section except the Gammanol Forte with FRAC. As you monitor your cholesterol and triglycerides in the future and if they are beginning to elevate, then add TRICHOL first, then LIPID-X and so forth until you find the combination of Specific Nutrients that control your cholesterol levels best.
