The Truth Behind Statins – And 4 Natural Alternatives

If you want to discover how to reverse high cholesterol WITHOUT prescription meds…

Then you must prioritize the root cause behind the problem.

And I want to let you in on a little secret, age isn’t the problem.

But each moment you continue to follow the typical American lifestyle and avoid the habits below…

You’ll accumulate what I like to call a debt on your health, where free radicals, toxins and stress begin to speed up the “aging process”. And soon it’ll become more difficult to lower cholesterol levels naturally, even with the most potent natural remedies…

And like most adults you’ll become dependent on synthetic “cover up” drugs like Lipitor.

What’s So Bad With Statins?

Well, here’s what you really need to know…

Statin drugs “work” by lowering cholesterol. But cholesterol is only an indicator of risk factors related to cardiovascular health.

Kinda like a check engine light…

So by taking statins, you’re cutting the cord and turning off that annoying light without “checking the engine”.

See the problem?

Well it doesn’t get any better. Like I said earlier there’s some nasty side effects behind statins “they”  don’t even mention in the commercials.

These nasty side effects include:

  1. Type 2 Diabetes
  2. Liver Damage
  3. Heart Failure
  4. Increased Risk Of Cancer – Especially Breast Cancer In Women
  5. Memory Loss
  6. Neuropathy
  7. Sexual Dysfunction

Yet statins don’t even attack the root cause behind high cholesterol or the risk factors associated with heart disease, stroke or heart attack…

So Cholesterol Isn’t Really The Problem?

You want to rid yourself of the cold and the fever will go away. High cholesterol is like a fever.

If you remember anything… remember this:

Cholesterol is a “risk marker” for cardiovascular disease due to poor or unavoidable habits. And these habits all point to the root cause and truth behind high cholesterol and many other medical complications….

INFLAMMATION!

And no, I’m not talking about a bruise, or swelling from a fall.

You can’t just put ice on it.

This is full body, systemic inflammation, something most doctors fail to mention.

And this type of Inflammation occurs within your vital organs, digestive system, and blood vessels. Unfortunately, the habits of most unknowing Americans are digging the hole even deeper while they cover up the problem with statin drugs…

Habits like….

  • Consuming “damaged fats” (cooking fats at high temp., hydrogenation, or trans fats)
  • Eating packaged goods with artificial chemicals and “hidden” sugars
  • Exposure to heavy metals and environmental toxins
  • Drinking fluoridated or chlorinated water (typical drinking water)
  • Taking prescription meds like antibiotics

Etc….etc…..etc….

But there’s good news…

As long as you control inflammation, cholesterol doesn’t have a place to “stick” inside the arterial walls…

So if you really want to avoid heart disease, heart attack, stroke and other issues thought to be a cholesterol problem, you need to LOWER INFLAMMATION.

4 Steps To Destroy Harmful Systemic Inflammation At It’s Roots

The 4 steps below will finally allow you an opportunity to get a grip on your health and avoid harmful prescription medication…

1. Prioritize Gut Health

Hippocrates once said: “All disease begins in the gut”. With the constant use of antibiotics, toxic, hormone ridden meats, and genetically modified

  • Eliminate food sensitivities (try an elimination diet or ask your doctor about an IGG test)
  • Eat healthy probiotic “raw” foods such as kimchi to repopulate your digestive system with healthy bacteria
  • Identify nutrient deficiencies
  • Avoid inflammatory foods & artificial sweeteners like aspartame

2. Lower Emotional Stress

Stress is impossible to avoid, but here’s a few tricks to help reduce your daily stress levels..

  • Avoid negative people in your life
  • Meditate – even if it’s just for 10 minutes
  • Start a gratitude journal
  • Get more QUALITY sleep (blackout shades, cool temperatures, less electronics)
  • Try grounding or earthing mats

3. Burn Off Visceral Fat

Visceral fat is toxic and inflammatory to all your vital organs. Eliminating or reducing visceral fat has been proven time and time again to reverse things such as high cholesterol, type 2 diabetes, and even thyroid issues.

  • Include the right kinds of interval training
  • Don’t follow low fat or crash diets
  • Prioritize gut health ( Step #1)
  • Avoid trans fats

4. Stabilize Blood Sugar

A rise or drop in blood sugar causes drastic hormonal fluctuations. These changes stress the adrenals, thyroid, digestive and cardiovascular systems. This stress then causes a rise in total body inflammation. Use the habits below to stabilize your blood sugar…

  • Balance your key electrolytes (sodium, potassium, calcium, and magnesium)
  • Eat proteins with every meal (turkey, chicken, white fish, lean beef)
  • Include high fiber foods (broccoli, zucchini, chia seeds)
  • Include the right fats (avocado, coconut oil, olive oil, and grass fed butter)
  • Manage stress (step #2)
  • Avoid simple carbs and sugar (especially alone)
  • Get more high quality sleep

BONUS: Balance Fatty Acid Ratios

The right fatty acid ratios improve circulation, sleep, athleticism, focus and lower inflammation. So what’s the right ratio?

2:1 or 3:1 Omega 6 to Omega 3 ratio is optimal for your health. Unfortunately, the average American is about 20:1. Here’s how to get back in balance:

  • Identify and reduce omega 6 fatty acids (safflower, sunflower, vegetable, canola oils)
  • Identify and increase omega 6 fatty acids
  • Take supplemental omega 3s

But for centuries there has been an even more potent ingredient to lower systemic inflammation than omega 3’s…
