High Cholesterol Can Be A Good Thing #AMCoffee

High Cholesterol Can Be Good?



Cholesterol is one of the widely discussed subjects these days. You hear it all the time: high cholesterol, low cholesterol, bad and good cholesterol. Wow, you can swim in the subject of “cholesterol!” I love having Dr. Karen Vieira as our amazing collaborator and contributor on the topics of women’s health and well-being. She has poured some light on the discussion of cholesterol in general that we can benefit from. Here’s her take on it.

Yes, you read that correctly. Why then would your doctor put you on a statin medicine like Lipitor or Crestor when your cholesterol levels are high? Because that’s what they’ve been taught to do. Don’t get mad at your doctor though. It’s not his or her fault. What you’re about to read isn’t well known yet by doctors, unfortunately.

Several studies conducted with the elderly, those with higher cholesterol levels, have proven to live longer than those with lower cholesterol levels. Studies on cholesterol haven’t just been done in nursing homes though. Studies in the general population have found that high cholesterol alone doesn’t predict the occurrence of heart attacks or strokes. High cholesterol on its own is meaningless.

    Get the Right Blood Tests

    There are other tests that do accurately predict risk for heart attack and stroke. Some of these tests include vLDL and sdLDL. If you have high levels of these and other tests, then there is reason for concern. But even that doesn’t warrant taking dangerous statin drugs like Lipitor or Crestor. There are natural ways to safely lower high vLDL and sdLDL without side effects.

You can place it anywhere where magnets can stick!

    Large 32″ Christmas Decoration Snowman Magnet Creative Set.
    Animated Figure.

    Here’s What this Developmental Set Can Do!

    • “Hi, I’m a Snowman, and I like warm hugs.” Who can forget that adorable snowman. Here you have the chance to let him into your home and allow him to help you celebrate this holiday season.

    • Create a life-size winter friend. No artistic skill required. Simply place the magnets on the fridge and arrange as you please. Brighten up you holiday season by decorating your fridge, your front (metal) door or any other large metal space. Best if it’s placed on a white surface – the color of a snowman – but other colors will do.

    • Easy cling magnets. 13 piece cut out components. Simply remove the magnets and enjoy. Flat magnets let you be creative. Great way to add to the spirit of the holiday. Fits any style refrigerator. Color graphics. Made of heavy-duty, die-cut vinyl. Set includes magnets for all his body parts, as well as a Christmas hat and bow-tie.

    • Snowman, I’m home! Let The Snowman Greet You At The Door! Being of the magnetic family, he likes to “stick” around. Invite him to stay on your house or in your home and he’ll happily comply. NOTE: These magnets are meant for decoration and not to be confused with magnets made to keep things on the fridge. They have enough magnetic pull to keep themselves attached to any metal surface, but not enough to hold other things.

    Beware of Cholesterol Medication

    Here’s what Dr. Karen Vieira thinks.

    The biggest problem with statin medications like Lipitor and Crestor are that they damage muscle tissue. This usually starts out as muscle pain but eventually leads to muscle breakdown that can get to the point of paralysis then death.

    If you don’t believe me and are dead-set on taking your cholesterol medication, please always take Coenzyme Q10 along with it. This can be bought for a few dollars at any pharmacy, grocery store or vitamin store. It is just a naturally occurring substance in our bodies that is needed for proper muscle and heart function.

    Cholesterol lowering medications all dangerously deplete the body of Coenzyme Q10, also known as CoQ10, hence the muscle damage that these drugs cause.

    Lower Cholesterol Naturally

    Use 1-3 grams daily of no flush NIACIN (a B vitamin) to safely lower cholesterol levels. Also effective is 2 grams daily of plant sterols/stenols. Discuss these options with your doctor in place of getting a prescription for a cholesterol lowering medication.

    I LOVE Freshly Prepared Foods

    Look what I did this pre-Thanksgiving Day for my family – FOOD PLATTER!

    I told them to enjoy all that is on the tray, as I will be in and out and very busy making anything else. No dinner either!

    Recap on CHOLESTEROL by Dr. Karen Vieira

    Again, I urge you to get tested for the correct types of cholesterol tests, consult with your doctor or ask me questions if you’re not sure which blood tests are right for your specific condition, lower your cholesterol naturally and safely, and if you insist on taking cholesterol lowering medication, ALWAYS take them with CoQ10.

    But ALWAYS consult with your Physician!
