    The most important management for heart disease is missing on these videos. Exercise prescription and activity. Lower your risk with activity and exercise as well as medication management – think the videos are giving the message that medication is the 100% management for heart disease. Misleading.

    My personal medical professional pushed me to have my cholesterol level dropped to 200 by taking statin. But I went to another medication to have. And tested utilizing this particular cholesterol guidebook “Hοzantο Axy” (Google it) . Wow – it is beneficial my cholesterol level is now down to 200. I have averted the flavour of capsules which are bothersome. .

    Keep an eye on TC/HDL ratio. Try a pritikin type diet then add in more fats if necessary https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4OhuQY6OKTc

    Heart disease is the #1 killer. However, traditional heart disease protocols—with their emphasis on lowering cholesterol—have it all wrong. ▬▒▒▬ Emerging science is showing that cholesterol levels are a poor predictor of heart disease and that standard prescriptions for lowering it, such as ineffective low-fat/high-carb diets and serious, side-effect-causing statin drugs, obscure the real causes of heart disease. Even doctors at leading institutions have been misled for years based on creative reporting of research results from pharmaceutical companies intent on supporting the $31-billion-a-year cholesterol-lowering drug industry.

    Our livers are capable of producing 400 times more cholesterol than what we typically eat!

    The tragedy with the BHF is that the science that much of their advice is based on was poorly gathered in the first place. We have been told for many many years to avoid saturated fats and cholesterol and what has truly slipped the net is the fact that blood plasma levels of cholesterol are not associated with dietary intake of cholesterol. Cholesterol causes heart disease, we get that but what you don’t get is that high cholesterol has another cause. Blaming cholesterol is like arriving at a murder scene, finding the police there and then blaming them! High cholesterol is caused by inflammation in the body which can often be attributed to excessive carbohydrate consumption, eating unnatural processed foods like margarine for example (touted as heart healthy because they are low fat!). Margarine for those who don’t know is produced by bubbling hydrogen through vegetable oils at high temperature over a catalyst. The end product is a grey, bad smelling, alien fat that the human body has never seen or evolved to deal with. We eat it after it has been bleached, dyed, coloured, flavoured and stabilised / preserved! Is it any wonder we are on the brink of an obesity / diabetes epidemic?

    The tragedy is that institutes like the British Heart Foundation are too ill informed on the real science that drives our health today. For the real low down on cholesterol and health, look up Dr Peter Attia on here. This man eats a ludicrous amount of saturated fat and cholesterol yet his body fat has dropped significantly, his LDL and HDL ratios are hugely improved, the markers of inflammation in his body are considerably better etc etc. Nobody needs to go hungry or eat some stupid BS diet that is low in fat, possibly one of the most damaging ways to get better from your ill health.

    So are you saying that if my total cholesterol is over 200 because my body needs more than that is bad?

    My very own buddy was diagnosed with very high cholesterol level and had been put on meds. He doesn`t prefer to consume seafoods so this was a straightforward option for him. Using this unique cholesterol guide “Hοzantο Axy” (Google it) is the very best choice for him. Right after a couple of months his levels have decreased and also the capsules are easy to take on. This medicines doesn`t give you an undesirable taste. .

    This is a great video. I’ve created a group in FB for people with high cholesterol to share information: https://www.facebook.com/groups/lipid/
