Cholesterol is not only falsely accused of being a bad guy but is actually one of the best guys in the game. According to research, cholesterol is in every cell of you body and for good reason. Without it, you could not produce sex hormones, vitamin D, bile, etc. Get the picture-cholesterol is not only good, it is NECESSARY for health. Your total cholesterol is not an indicator of cardiovascular (CV) health. Rather it is the ratios of total cholesterol, HDL (good cholesterol), LDL (bad cholesterol), and just as importantly, triglycerides that determine CV risk. By artificially lowering you cholesterol through taking statins (google the side effects of Lipitor etc), you can cause inflammation leading to lowered serotonin levels, increased risk of cancer, depression, peripheral neuropathy, violence, and dementia not to mention liver damage. The only exceptions to this is a rare genetic disorder.

If you can’t bring yourself to go against big pharma and continue to take statin drugs, at least load up on high quality Ubiquinone (the most viable form of CO-Q 10) which restore the very important levels of CO-Q10 that the statin drugs have destroyed.

There is no controversy over this. Medical fact – statin drugs deplete CO-Q 10. Ask your doctor why he doesn’t have you taking it to counteract to effects of the statin drugs.

If you have wondered if chiropractic nutritionist approaches can help you, see a chiropractor or chiropractors. Better yet, see a chiropractic neurologist such as myself, Dr. Scott Brown.
