cholesterol drug fraud statin side effects

With all the millions of people taking statin drugs to help reduce their cholesterol there has been a huge amount of information on the unwelcome statin drugs side effects.

Over 30 million Americans take cholesterol reducing statins on a regular basis and the number is increasing, not least because of the millions of dollars spent by the drug companies to promote them.

What the drug companies don’t like however is talk of side effects but with statins, it is hard to quiet the number of complaints from so many people who suffer because of these drugs.

Muscle pain and weakness is probably the most common complaint but there are many others. Many of the side effects do not appear as soon as the patient starts taking the drug and of course, many report that their cholesterol levels do drop leading to praise for these type of drugs.

Later when the side effects start to become more apparent, the medical diagnosis is often that the patient is suffering a new medical complaint that will require further drugs. Seldom is it suggested that the complaints are side effects of the current drug treatment.

On goes the continuing medical treatment adding more pharmaceuticals to the diet to treat more and more ailments that start to appear.

One side effect of taking statin drugs is that people become complacent about their diet and expect the drug to handle things. Just because you are taking statins it is no excuse to eat what you want and ignore basic sensible diet restrictions that can often do more to reduce your cholesterol level that pharmaceuticals.

Cholesterol drug statin side effects

There’s really no reason to take statins and suffer the damaging health effects from these dangerous drugs. The fact is that 75 percent of your cholesterol is produced by your liver, which is influenced by your insulin levels. Therefore, if you optimize your insulin levels, you will automatically optimize your cholesterol. It follows, then, that my primary recommendations for safely regulating your cholesterol have to do with modifying your diet and lifestyle:

  • Optimize your vitamin D levels. Research by Dr. Stephanie Seneff has shed additional light on the extreme importance of appropriate sun exposure for normalizing your cholesterol levels and preventing heart disease. For more information, please see this previous interview.
  • Reduce, with the plan of eliminating, grains and sugars in your diet. Ideally, you’ll also want to consume a good portion of your food raw.
  • Make sure you are getting plenty of high-quality, animal-based omega-3 fats, such as krill oil.
  • Other heart-healthy foods include olive oil, coconut and coconut oil, organic raw dairy products and eggs, avocados, raw nuts and seeds, and organic grass-fed meats as appropriate for your nutritional type.
  • Exercise daily. Make sure you incorporate Peak Fitness exercises, which also optimizes your human growth hormone (HGH) production.
  • Address your emotional challenges. My favorite technique for stress management is the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT).
  • Avoid smoking or drinking alcohol excessively.
  • Be sure to get plenty of good, restorative sleep.

Unlike statin drugs, which lower your cholesterol at the expense of your health, these lifestyle strategies represent a holistic approach that will benefit your overall health—which includes a healthy cardiovascular system.

Cholesterol drug users cheated?

    I am looking for natural ways to lower my cholesterol. I am suppose to be taking lipitor as prescribed by my doctor, but would like to try alternative, natural ways. While I know everyone is different, I am looking for advice from someone who might have been in a similar situation or has treated someone in a similar situation.

  2. stopthepoison says:

    This is very interesting. It would be great to get this out to the masses more. I know alot of people especially elderly, are sold on lowering their cholesterol with Lipitor etc., for fear of having a heart attack etc., and they would be to afraid to believe it isn’t true. I have read somewhere a few years back that as you say, cholesterol is our friend. The body just doesn’t behave irrationally, it is provoked by wrong living/stress etc. What I heard was that the body produces this waxy……

  3. stopthepoison says:

    substance=cholesterol to be available if say someone had hardened arteries and one breaks or there is a crack, the cholest. is there to repair and fill in the break. So yes, it is not the cholesterol per say that is the problem. I have observed two different personality types that demonstrate some of what you are saying. There are happy, cheerful, relaxed personalities that might have high chol., but I don’t think it is a problem. Then there is the type A, who is very stressed/pressured…

  4. stopthepoison says:

    high anxiety, etc, who have the high homocistine levels you speak of and other factors that cause the arteries to lose there flexibllity and harden. This personality also has low serotonin, and low cholesterol in some cases, which is dangerous, because if something ruptures it cannot be repaired effectively. Natural eggs, butter, and all the good kind of oils/fats make a person like that feel better… big pharm. has put so many at risk in the name of profit.

  6. HomesteadProvocateur says:

    It is called bunk science as a catalyst to increase sales for drugs that treat non-existent problem. Except there is a problem, atherosclerosis is caused by scarring from the acidic condition of the body ph, through over consumption of sugar and processed foods. Cholesterol is like the bodies band aid, a way to fix an underlying problem. It is our best freaking friend.

  7. HomesteadProvocateur says:

    Man this last guy is right on the freaking money! It’s gotta go mainstream. I know people think to say fat is healthy seems like a misnomer, but your body needs fat, it is the basis of only every single hormone not to mention the phospholipid bilayer which comprises the wall of EVERY cell in your body, whose surface area at a given time is probably akin to the surface area of the great wall of China. That is a whole lotta fat. People need to stop watching so much tv.

  8. hoppeppers says:

    no people have to watch more tv and gain weight

  9. navysealboy62 says:

    Idk how correct I am with this but it seems that the drug companies don’t really give two craps about people they are supposed to be helping but rather the money they make.

  10. MrsPredNZ says:

    He says that food is medicine, well it is no wonder that ‘they’ are trying to take control of our food supply, check out the codec alimentarius(sp)

  11. nukkingfuks says:

    well said MrsP – and codec is happening in the UK right now – I’m diabetic and have been TOLD to go on statins – I’ve refused, they keep pushing! – I keep telling them – IT’S MY BODY and up to me..

  12. HogbergPhotography says:

    Even though he looks like a “neanderthal”, what he says makes lot of sense.

  13. wachnathan says:
