The Cholesterol Hoax

Post by weeder »

Ive discovered an incredible book, and an author who is a MD who cares about people, and their health. Sherry Rogers. The Cholesterol Hoax. I would urge anyone of you who is on Cholesterol medication, to read this book, and consider what she has to say. After reading it myself, I wish that every person I know, would throw those pills in the garbage. A few years ago, when forced to visit a doctor because of a swollen foot, he tried to put me on cholesterol medication. I wouldnt do it, as I always have believed that the pharmacutecal industry is at the root of these medications being prescribed. I preferred to investigate on my own. I discovered the power of plant statins for the treatment of cholesterol. Combined with diet and excerise, I knew that a person could bring their levels to the place they should be. Dr. Rogers confirms my belief, and further explains that there is a natural remedy for the controll of cholesterol. It would be impossible for me to highlight all of the information provided in this incredible book. However, I will tell you the facts that frightened me, and hit home the hardest. Our bodies need cholesterol. Lack of it, " Rots the brain" promotes premature aging, invites coronary heart disease, impotence, and even cancer. She suspects that the high incidence of Alzheimers is due to most of the world being on this medication. She isnt a quack, or a nut. Her credentials are impeccable, and impressive. Her premise is " Wake up and smell the coffee. Understand that the pharmacutecial industry is a billion and billion of dollar business, not concerned with our health. Its only concern, is to keep us all on medications for the course of our lives, and keep the dollars rolling in.

This book will blow your mind, when you discover that cholesterol is not the bad guy, we have been led to believe. The statiscs prove that a skinny person with low cholesterol can be the victim of a massive heart attack, while an over weight person with a high number can live to be 99. There are other over looked factors that determine coronary heart disease.

I agree about the pharmaceutical industry. They make their money by treating symptoms, not curing disease. Curing means no more treatment, no more drugs, no more profits. Saving lives would be their death, so to speak.



I have high cholesterol, though not high enough for drugs. I must make too much all on my own, because my eating habits are practically vegetarian. I'll check out this 'plant statins' because I've never heard of it.



Thanks! :-6

Acc... You MUST read this book. Vitamin E ( pure vitamin e) C and A are all necessary for proper levels of Cholesterol. High Cholesterol is a warning bell that something else is out of wack. Eliminating the Cholesterol with a drug... shuts off the smoke alarm.

Weeder, I am taking two statins for cholesterol. Someone thought it was way off base that I was taking two. I'm not so sure why I even am. Ok, what kind of plants contain these statins?? I am cautious with the vit. A as I know too much can be toxic. But I will get that book so I can see what she says. Thank you. :)

After / during all my husbands heart issues - triple by-pass

Dr.'s of course push this cholesterol meds - Baycol for one, shut my husbands kidneys down, back the ER again..

I threw all cholesterol meds away

my husband is on vitamins - E, C, B12, Folic Acid, Fish Oil, cod liver oil, and magnesium. He's never been healthier

Think about it - How can one pill go just to clean out/stop cholesterol ?

What a BS pill this is - the problem is Dr.'s push alot of HOAX pills.

Patsy.. that is exactly the cocktail of supplements this doctor reccommends.

You must have found a good doctor. Terri.... no matter what your cholesterol number is........ throw those pills away. High Cholesterol is an indicator that there is an inflamation, or a deficiency somewhere in your body. There are very specific tests needed to determine what you are lacking, or what you need. Cholesterol numbers are not an indicator of the possibility of coronary heart disease. There are other factors. This book is a must. I wish I could find copies of it used... Id send it to any of you who need to read it. I now want to read her book Pain Free in Six Weeks. Also...

Detoxify or Die.

To continue the medical theme... As many of you know, I had a very serious bout of depression a couple of weeks ago. It was very frightening, and so many of you were so kind to be concerned about me. Im feeling better. Not wildly happy.... mind you. That would be ridiculous:) But better. My friends visit helped, and quitting my night job helped also. I was exhausted. Now I can be depressed about money ( Or lack of) Id rather be poor and alive.

Anyway...... I have begun taking L-Tryptophan. You might recognize that this is the enzyme found in turkey, that supposedly causes drowsiness. It is a natural food supplement. L- Tryptophan was wildly successful in the treatment of drpression, anxiety, insomnia, and over eating for many many years. Thousands of people were taking it. The cost was very little, and there are absolutely no side effects. In 1972 when Prozac came out, the FDA

banned L- Tryptophan. People were now forced to take very expensive prescription depression medications. For years alternative medicine advocates have fought to have L- Tryptophan put back on the shelves. It is back, and I am as I said trying it. Look it up on the web. The information will blow you away. Im very excited about this. I want to share it with you all.

I'd be really, really wary of stopping cholesterol meds without

consulting your doctor. Not saying it can't be done or you

shouldn't do it, just be cautious.

And watch out taking the vitamin E, too, and let your doctor

know about it (AND anything else) because if you were to have

surgery, they might have you stop the vitamin E a couple of

weeks beforehand.

If your on Cholesterol meds - Vitamin E will be the least of your worries.

Cholesterol Meds are a Joke - they'll kill ya before your heart attack.

Most Cholesterol Meds have a Class Action Law Suit behind it.

Another Joke Pill is PLAVIX - @ $60.00 a pill blood thinner BS

I took my husband off them also - that's what ASPIRIN is for..

Well I didn't say that vitamin E would be the MOST of your worries,

just a cautionary... ;)

As long as you get tested periodically to make sure whatever you're

doing is working then you're probably okay.

Aspirin has been around for many years and is almost a wonder

drug. But I'd venture to say you have to be careful with that, too.

Stomach bleeding and high blood pressure to name two!

Val

I couldn't agree with you more - exactly the point to this thread

Side affects !!

All I can say is when my husband flew thru a triple by-pass with flying colors -

but nearly dies from the prescription (Cholesterol)..?

Dr.'s don't care - it's not their body/system going thru hell

Dr.'s keep padding their pockets - more prescriptions - more money.

Terrible system

This is the scheme with cholesterol meds.. They do so much damage to your body that within 5 years.... if you do not have dementia...you will be on maybe 2 or 3 more meds. More $$$ every month for the rest of your life to, you know who... The pharmecutical companys.

Heres another one.. Viagra.. Cialis etc.... for erectile dysfuntion. I learned through my reading that the penis is the barometer of the male body. ER is a warning signal that something is wrong. The ER drugs are also very dangerous. But then, I always knew that also.

Thankfully, when you see commercials or ads for any kind of perscription med, the side effects do have to be listed or spoken. I often wonder, after hearing the horrendous side effects, how could anyone take any of this stuff?

People are more informed about their cars, then their own bodies.

Ive met women who when speaking of having had a hysterectomy... or are going to have one, I ask... a partial or a full? They dont know.
