How to stop coronary heart disease and keep your arteries clear?
Why not just take high cholesterol medication -- “statin drugs,” e.g. atorvastatin (Lipitor), simvastatin (Zocor), lovastatin (Mevacor), pravastatin (Pravachol), or rosuvastatin (Crestor), to prevent coronary heart disease?
Is it short-sighted to simply take this medication which reduces your cholesterol by blocking its production in your liver. Why?
(American Journal of Physiology. Lead author and stem cell biologist Professor Reza Izadpanah)
Cholesterol serves many important roles in the body.
In the context of heart health, cholesterol is an anti-inflammatory, rising in response to inflammation in the cardiovascular system.
Somewhere along the way, a “correlation” got confused with the “cause."
High Cholesterol is only one risk factor for eventually, MAYBE, developing heart disease.
High cholesterol, according to new findings, IS NOT EVEN A VERY PREDICTIVE indicator for getting a heart attack:
Don't forget that cholesterol is a fat and that it is a fat that is needed by the brain for thinking and for memory.
The brain is composed of 60% fat, and needs fats INCLUDING CHOLESTEROL to function properly:
LOW Cholesterol, in fact, leads to memory decline.
Yes, you read it right:
Why? Researches such as Dr. Pfrieiger discovered that cholesterol is actually needed by the neurons in the brain to work properly!
Without adequate cholesterol, these synapses cannot transmit signals!
Because people and doctors do not expect memory problems, so that they are typically blamed on nature, or on "old age."
The most compelling evidence suggests that it is “oxidized” LDL
cholesterol, and not just high levels of cholesterol, or even LDL
cholesterol that causes the development of arterial inflammation.

Does stress cause high cholesterol?
If you want to prevent heart disease you will want to do everything you can to minimize inflammation and oxidative damage.
What causes chronic inflammation in the arteries?
What happens when exposure to “stressors” becomes chronic because of:
1) emotional and other stresses, 2) poor nutrition: sugar, trans fats, oxidized LDL cholesterol, etc., 3) smoking and 4) inactivity?
This results in a “permanent emergency” called chronic inflammation.
Does stress cause high cholesterol? Yes, it is part of inflammation.
Chronic low grade inflammation eventually damages the artery walls, leaving them stiffer and prone to plaque buildup. Further inflammation makes any plaque that’s already there more fragile and more likely to burst.
Researchers are finding that it is inflammation that leads to a reduction of mature collagen in atherosclerotic plaques, leading to thinner caps that are more likely to rupture.
This is important because scientists say that it is not atherosclerosis alone, but the rupture of the “unstable” atherosclerotic plaques, that causes heart attacks and strokes.
Stopping or curbing inflammation in the walls of the arteries, is increasingly considered to be a basic strategy for keeping arteries healthy, flexible and unclogged.
Are there any “indicators” for you to know how much inflammation you have in your blood?
People who in their 40’s and 50’s had the highest levels of CRP’s were the most likely to develop heart disease.
NOTE: High levels of cholesterol and high blood pressure were NOT as predictive!
How to check inflammation in your blood?
Yes, there is an ALL IN ONE supplement for coronary heart disease!
You CAN get your vitality back and likely reduce your meds.
This BEST-SELLING supplement covers the bases with arginine AND antioxidants against inflammation, and helps to:
You may be surprised at being able to lower cholesterol AND blood pressure with this TASTY powder instead of a handfull of pharmaceutical PILLS!
Best way to prevent a heart attack or stroke is by minimizing inflammation and oxidative damage:
Long-chain omega-3 fatty acids from fish may be more effective that statins at reducing cardiac mortality.
Changes in diet, such as lowering sugar, processed foods and increasing fiber, will reduce inflammation, and will reduce your belly fat -- the type of fat that’s been found to be inflammatory in itself.
Eating the right omega 3 fats will go a long way to protect against oxidative degeneration of blood lipid or fats.
And for lowering cholesterol naturally, of course, eat your oatmeal (slow cooking oats) with ground flax seeds for breakfast. And don't worry, go ahead and add an egg or two for heart health!
Researchers were shocked to find much higher plaque build up in the artery walls of couples who fought a lot, in comparison to couples who are more supportive of each other.
New discoveries about the role of Vitamin D and K are major breakthroughs for preventing the buildup of calcium in the arteries and keeping them flexible.
You can add these vitamins for your best coronary artery disease diet:
Reducing stress levels with natural supplements to reduce stress, anxiety and that promote sleep.
You may ASK US for a recommendation:
Does stress cause high cholesterol?
Yes. We wish you success in finding ways to RELAX and enjoy life!
Natural coronary heart disease treatments have come a long way, so make sure that YOU get benefit of all this science!
