Is a disease of the arteries and the Number One Killer in the United States (Over a quarter of the deaths each year). The arteries get blocked over time (Atherosclerosis), which eventually if not treated may lead to a Heart Attack or Stroke.
What causes the accumulation of plaque in our arteries?
LDL Cholesterol & Inflammation of the walls of the arteries:
Both HDL and LDL Cholesterols perform a critical function in our body. LDL will turn bad when free radicals oxidize it, thus destabilizing it. The oxidizing process of the LDL causes it to become sticky, enabling it to stick to the artery walls, along with the cholesterol comes the white blood cells which together with the cholesterol, fatty substances and cell product waste, form the plaque on the arteries.
This process also leads to inflammation of the walls of the arteries which on the one side stimulates the growth of the plaque and on the other hand contributes to the rupturing of the plaque.
How does the artery clot?
When a layer of plaque is damaged the inflamed plaque is now exposed to the blood stream, the body in an attempt to cure itself overreacts triggering a blood clot within the artery, resulting in a blocked artery.
Chronic inflammation of the artery walls is one of the key factory leading to the rupturing of plaques which in turn lead blood clots in the arteries.
Chronic Inflammation combined with Free Radicals and high LDL Cholesterol Dramatically increases the risk of Heart Attacks and Stroke.
Other risk factors are overweight, unhealthy diet, lack of regular exercise, high blood pressure and smoking.
How can you monitor the inflammation and LDL Levels?
Periodic Blood Test to check
- LDL, HDL, Total Cholesterol and Levels
- C-reactive protein (CRP)- It give an indication on the inflammation levels in your body
- Less than 1.0mg/L – Lower Risk
- 0-2.9mg/L – Intermediate Risk
- Greater than 3.0mg/L – High Risk
A high CRP level is an indication of an inflammation process in your body. However a low CRP level doesn’t rule out the possibility that you have a small localized inflammation in your arteries, which the blood tests can’t detect.
Common Practice for Reducing the Risk of Atherosclerosis
Only Takes Care of the LDL Levels
- Statins which lowers the body’s production of LDL Cholesterol
- Recommendation to follow a low saturated fat diet so as to reduce the consumption of Cholesterol.
What is the problem with this method??
- There are several drawbacks to using Statins
- It doesn't Naturally Reduce the Amount of LDL Cholesterol the Body Produces
- It doesn't Reduce the amount of free radicals which oxidize the LDL Cholesterol turning it to BAD Cholesterols
- It doesn’t take care of the inflammation process in the arteries.\
Only one risk element (Cholesterol) is dealt with, (while risking the potential side effects) and at the same time you remain with two risk elements, thus still leaving you at a risk for Heart Attack and Stroke.
What are the Drawbacks of using Statins?
- Statins reduce the amount of coenzyme Q10 in the body. Since Q10 plays a role in muscle cell energy production its reduction can cause muscle and joint pains. The heart itself as being one big muscle uses large quantities of Q10, thus reducing the Q10 levels in your body may also affect your heart’s function.
So if you decide to use Statins make sure to also take a Q10 supplement!
- Statins reduce the amount of Cholesterol our body produces but, but if like most people you continue eating food with high Cholesterol levels, then you would be replacing our bodies important Cholesterol with harmful animal Cholesterol.
Other known side effects of Statins are:
- Increased blood sugar levels and Risk of type 2 diabetes
- Risk of liver and kidney damage
Is There a Comprehensive Proven Solution?
This is exactly the question I asked myself a few years ago when I was confronted with both high Cholesterol and another heart problem. Knowing the effect of statins in reducing Q10 and thus its negative effect on the heart I did not want to take it and looked for a better and more comprehensive solution.
I read a lot and tested different methods on myself. After along research and months of trials and supporting blood test results I came up with a comprehensive effective solution that takes care of all the aspects relating to Atherosclerosis, (Reducing the Amount of Inflammation, Free Radicals & LDL Cholesterol in my body), plus I gained a Much Stronger Immune System which by itself is a very important result.
Since then I have given this system to friends and family members who have enjoyed its Amazing Results.
I looked for an Effective, Natural and Comprehensive way to Reduce the risk of Atherosclerosis by taking care of its three root causes!!
- Naturally Reduce the Bodies Cholesterol production
- Reduce the free radicals in the body – The free radicals are those which transform the LDL Cholesterol to Bad Cholesterol which eventually creates the plaque on your arteries
- Reduce the inflammation levels in the body – Inflammation both contributes to the creation of plaque and later on to the reaction of the body leading to blocked arteries.
What is offered here is a comprehensive proven alternative solution, which will address all these issues and will additionally boost your immune system.
Boosting your immune system both reduce the occurrence and severity of illnesses, will help protect your brain from dementive diseases such as Alzheimer and will help protected your body against cancer.
It is a simple low cost and proven system. Each of the elements used in the system has been scientifically proven to be effective, but more important than this is that it simply works!!!
It should be noted that it does take a bit more effort than simply taking a pill but the results and side benefits are well worth it.
You can improve your results by additionally following these guide lines:
- A Mediterranean diet which includes relatively high level of antioxidants and olive oil.
- Reduced saturated fats – Will also help reducing your Cholesterol levels
- Less Salt – will also help to reduce your blood pressure
- Less Sugar (including high glycemic products) – will also help to reduce the chances of diabetes
- Regulate your weight – you can use a BMI scales as reference
- Exercising on a regular basis
- Reduce Stress
- Don’t Smoke
It is recommended to consult your doctor during the process of switching between statins to the system recommended here. The process of reducing statins should be done slowly in accordance with the reduction of cholesterol due to the implementation of the system.
If you are not yet taking statins and your doctor has recommended you to start taking them, consult with your doctor if it is possible to wait for a few months while you are implementing the system, so that after 3-4 months you could again review your conditions and decide at that time how to proceed.
Even if you are not suffering from any high cholesterol it is recommended for you to implement the main steps in the system that will help improve your health both in the short run and in the long run.
