Understanding Cholesterol Test Results

Posted by Ppodruga (Ontario) on 01/24/2014

Hi, I have received my last blood results. Doctor want me to start statins, but I am looking for some alternative help.

There are my results:

CND US

  • Total Cholesterol 8.42 (324 )
  • HDL Cholesterol 3.03 (118)
  • LDL Cholesterol 5.17 (199)
  • Cholesterol/ HDL ratio is 2.8


Can somebody help me with the results?

Ppodruga: Hdl should be 60. High hdl indicates oxidation making bad hdl. Ldl should be below 130. Total cholesterol should be below 200. The cholesterol of Mike Adams is approximately 70/70. Taking meds is not good. Eating cooked conventionally grown foods does not provide enough nutrition for optimal functioning. Search raw food and super food videos. Take yucca spray dried for horses. The saponins are very beneficial. Take black chia seeds and organic apples. The soluble fiber is very beneficial. Take organic beans. Small red, kidney, and pinto are best. Take desiccated liver. A good liver makes good cholesterol. Take non denatured whey isolate. This makes glutathione that mops up free radicals and prevents oxidation. Take raw cocoa powder and 90, 000hu cayenne. This is best for the cardio vascular system. Take 3ml/day skate liver oil. If you have not been taking a d3 supplement then take 5000iu d3/day. Make green smoothies from organic baby greens and add some nutritional yeast every 4 hours. Take 1 organic strawberry every 4 hours or take 200mg vitamin c from a whole food concentrate. After that take 50mg c from the whole food concentrate 4x/day.

Do not take Statins. They will damage your health. The reason they focus on cholesterol is because they will say it leads to heart disease. That is a lie. Look at the latest research regarding cholersterol and heart disease. ALmost everything they have said in the past is wrong. You can throw your cholesterol results in a basket. They aren't worth the paper they are printed on. I had cholesterol results of around 370 for over 50 years.

If you want good heart health, look into nattokinase, lumbrokinase and vitamin K2. There is a discussion on K2 within olive extract under blood pressure. How old are you by the way?

I belong to a Yahoo group named "Stopped our Statins" where mainly statin damaged people go to share experiences. There are many members. I was a healthy, active 50 year old with high cholesterol and was put on a variety of statins, on and off, over a 10 year period. I stopped each one when I got to the point that I could no longer walk down my stairs without holding on to the railing. Each time my doctor would tell me with my family history, I might be like other patients who had heart attacks because they quit the statins. 14 - 20% of statin users will be damaged and some will develop statin induced autoimmune diseases, and that is what happened to me. It is said to actually alter the DNA in these cases. I also developed hypothyroidism, which no one else in my family has ever had. (There is said to be an epidemic of thyroid disorders and I wonder if we are reaping the statin rewards?) I can no longer sleep more than a couple of hours at a time, an actual concern for heart disease. Many suffer much more serious consequences, and after going to Johns Hopkins myopathy center for statin damage because their muscles have become wasted, have been told there is no answer for them. Our cardiologist on the group, along with other MD's, refuse to prescribe statins. They deplete CoQ10 in the body which leads to many problems down the road, especially with muscles, and of course the heart is a big muscle. They have about a 1% success rate for men who have had a previous heart attack, but no other group, including all women, derive any benefit from statin use.

Members believe the Mediterranean diet, or the Low carb diet may help with artery damage. Vitamin K2 will take calcium out of the blood vessels and direct it to the bones and teeth where it belongs. I take fish, black seed and sea buckthorn oil to keep my blood from clotting, and watch for high iron (causing sticky blood), which I can donate blood to overcome. You need cholesterol for every part of the body, especially the brain. It collects in arteries to repair damage that has already occurred. Meditation and yoga helps for stress. I don't know why people get heart disease, but cholesterol is not the reason, and statins are never the answer.

In regards to "I don't know why people get heart disease". It is real simple. The people who have clean arteries will not get heart disease. Doesn't matter what their cholesterol reads, what their blood pressure is etc. The arteries need to get cleaned. The way to clean them is with fibrinolytic enzymes. Look at the research China has done on Lumbrokinase.

Read the latest book out on the subject, "The Cholesterol Myth". Don't take those statins. Half the people that die of a heart attack have high levels and half have normal levels, what does that tell you? Good Luck

Falsified research on beta blockers exposed. Doctors are still prescribing them. If you are on them, look into Nattokinase (or Lumbrokinase) and vitamin K2 (ML4). Below is the story.

...Patients undergoing surgery are routinely given a beta-blocker in order to reduce stress on the heart—but the research that led to the adoption of the practice was falsified, and doctors reckon that 800, 000 people have died as a result.

Beta-blockers, which are antihypertensives for lowering blood pressure, increase the chances of dying from a stroke or hypotension (dangerously low blood pressure levels) by 27 per cent.

Thanks Prioris,

I looked at the lumbrokinase and it looks like it would also be good for dissolving biofilms in Lyme disease and help antibiotics work more effectively. I passed this info on to others who may benefit and someone thought it may then also help with the candida biofilms. I agree about the importance of keeping the arteries clean to avoid heart disease. I have had radiowave ablation of my saphanous leg vein, which still had some non-closed areas because the vein was so large, so I hesitate to take any vein opener in case it reopens. Do you think I could still use Serrapeptase safely? I would like to keep my arteries clear, if possible. My vein doctor had no idea what it was when I asked him about it, but at least he admitted it. Thank you!

I can't say exactly what you need but for most people Nattokinase should be sufficient. I myself take both nattokinase and serrapeptase because CFIDS causes chronic blood coagulation. I found thru experimentation over time that that combination works for me the best. I can actually feel it working in me. I'd look into MK7 vitamin K2 also because that may help keep the arteries free of calcium build up. Take with meal.

Lumbrokinase has clinical research behind it but is more expensive. No studies will be done on Nattokinase because it would hurt the financial interests of many synthetic blood clot removal products. I found nattokinase very effective for arteries so never bothered with lumbrokinase. Enzymes in general help with biofilms and dissolving various things in the body also. I also take bromelaine which acts on biofilm also. The only thing I can think of that I would maybe avoid is using aspirin on a daily basis with them. You will be fine playing with serrapeptase also.

Take the enzymes on an empty stomach. I take my enzymes all together in morning and before bed when stomachg empty. If one takes nattokinase once a day, they say the best time is before bed since blood has tendency to coagulate more when you lie horizontal. probably why many people have heart attacks in their sleep.


Understanding the Role of Cholesterol

Warning

Please read the article “The Cholesterol Myth That Is Harming Your Health” on Dr. Mercola's site (Google will find it). What an eye opener! It explains why cholesterol lowering drugs are so dangerous, why we need cholesterol, and why it might be high (repairing damage done by arterial inflammation). Taking ACV should help lowering the inflammation and with it most probably the cholesterol, but do not give up healthy fats, including eggs. Be well!

There is evidence that just as high cholesterol is dangerous, so is (too) low cholesterol.

Low cholesterol is associated with higher rates of aggression, violent behavior, depression, suicide, also cancer, Parkinson's, memory loss, and other illnesses. So, while lowering cholesterol lowers risks of heart disease, it raises risks of other health issues.

In the book Uninformed Consent the authors quote a recommendation of around 230 as being the (all around) safest cholesterol level.

So if someone is fighting anger, depression, etc, maybe he should check his cholesterol levels and if they are on the low side try to raise them to around 230.

Maimonides, a Jewish sage and doctor taught that in personal traits the middle way is balanced and healthy. To get to the middle and balanced way one should examine one's personal traits and strive to bend any unbalanced personal trait to its opposite, (after-which, in most cases, one should bring the trait to the middle; with anger, however, one should bend it too its opposite without afterwards going to the middle). And what is the opposite of anger? Rabbi Eliyahu of Vilna said that one should bend anger to mercy (and this will help a person overcome anger). Nachmanides, Rabbi Moshe ben Nachman taught that one should train oneself to always "speak all one's worlds, calmly/gently/softly to all people, at all times, and in all circumstances, and in this way one will be saved from anger".


Vitamin C

I was reading where high Cholesterol can be fixed by taking 3000-5000 mg of vitamin C per day. The theory is cholesterol attaches itself to lesions in your blood vessels. The Vitamin C repairs the lesions thus allowing the body to flush the cholesterol that is not needed naturally. Further the articles stated Cholesterol is needed to heal nerves that get damaged. The statin drugs stop the body from making cholesterol thus the nerves don't get healed. I took a fall 2 years ago and no one can figure out why I am in pain. I have been on statin drugs for 4 years. My theory is I damaged nerves in the fall and the lack of cholesterol is not allowing my nerves to heal. I weaned myself off the Lipitor. And am taking 1500 mg 3 times a day of vitamin C. I don't know if it will work I hope so. But I have noticed my memory is getting better.


Vitamin D

I am taking 10,000 units of Vitamin D for cholesterol. I really want to know what to do about belly fat, and how others have beat the battle of the bulge.

Hi there. Try rebounding or using a mini-trampoline. It's the best exercise on earth. A rebounder costs around 50 bucks and the benefits are numerous. I do 20 minutes per day which is equal to 1 hour of jogging (plus it's 68 percent more effective than jogging without the added stress on the joints). Look it up and try it! All the best. Tanja

ps. you can do abdominals and crunches til the cows come home. They don't work.
