What you NEED TO KNOW about High Cholesterol

The Truth about High Cholesterol and Statin Drugs

Our aging population spends more and more time in a medical doctor’s office. With elevated cholesterol.

Mainstream medicine’s answer to that is pharmaceutical, prescription drugs (statins). To reduce cholesterol, that they believe leads to blood clots and heart attacks.

Statins to lower your cholesterol are sold under a variety of names including Lipitor (atorvastatin), Zocor (simvastatin), Mevacor (lovastatin) and Pravachol (pravastatin).

What YOU NEED to KNOW about High Cholesterol

Hypercholesterolemia (high cholesterol) is actually an invented disease of the 21st century. It emerged when doctors learned how to measure blood cholesterol. Oddly enough, high cholesterol does NOT have any outward signs or symptoms. Most people feel perfectly healthy – and ARE perfectly healthy – with high cholesterol.

With the full backing of the US government, media and medical establishment, doctors routinely convince patients that they need to take toxic drugs for the rest of their lives. And have regular checkups and blood tests. Because (they say, without scientific evidence) high cholesterol is the forerunner of blood clots and heart attacks. And possibly other diseases as well.

After you read about the dangers, please read on for natural, healthy solutions. Systemic Enzymes can prevent blood clots and heart attacks, with NO harmful side-effects.

The Dangers of Statin Drugs

Nasty side-effects you may not know about…

~ Neuropathy, Muscle Pain and Weakness

Weakness, tingling and pain in hands and feet may cause difficulty walking. Puts seniors at high risk of falling and breaking bones (or worse).

~ Dizziness

Common with statin use, possibly from blood pressure-lowering effects. The elderly are particularly sensitive to this. They need stability more than most, to reduce risk of falling.

~ Heart Failure

Virtually everyone with heart failure is prescribed statin drugs – even if their cholesterol is already low!

Statins were first given pre-market approval in 1987. Since then, heart failure deaths have more than doubled!

The likely explanation is that statins interfere with production of CoEnzyme Q10, and the heart muscle does not work properly when deprived of CoEnzyme Q10.

As the pharmaceutical industry encourages doctors to lower their patients’ cholesterol levels even further, depletion of Co-Q10 worsens. Weaker heart muscles and contribute to the current US epidemic of congestive heart failure. [Langsjoen PH. The clinical use of HMG Co-A reductase inhibitors (statins) and the associated depletion of the essential co-factor coenzyme Q10: a review of pertinent human and animal data.]

A recent study shows that patients with chronic heart failure actually BENEFIT from high cholesterol, rather than low (Clark AL and others. J Am Coll Cardiol 2003;42:1933-1943). In this study, researchers followed 114 heart failure patients for at least 12 months and found:

  • Survival was 78% at 12 months, and 56% at 36 months
  • For every point of decrease in cholesterol, there was a 36% increase in the risk of death within three years.

Now THAT’s convincing!

~ Cognitive Impairment

The November 2003 issue of Smart Money describes a case of Lipitor turning a young businessman into an old one, when he was in the prime of life. Statin use caused his speech and memory to fade. Forced him to close his business and go on Social Security. Things improved when he discontinued Lipitor. But he still cannot sustain a conversation.

The December 2003 issue of Pharmacotherapy reported cases of cognitive impairment associated with Lipitor and Zocor. Patients suffered progressive cognitive decline. Reversed completely within a month after discontinuing statins (fortunately!).

A study at the University of Pittsburgh tested patients on statins and placebos. With solving complex mazes, psychomotor skills and memory tests. Statin patients compared poorly with patients on a placebo.

Take a look at the book “Lipitor: Thief of Memory” by former astronaut Duane Graveline. He discuses Global Transient Amnesia which is complete memory loss for a brief or lengthy period. Sufferers report baffling incidents of forgetting where they are, and why. The episodes occur and disappear suddenly. But what if your airplane pilot develops statin?

~ Liver damage

Statin use can cause liver inflammation. Although rare, contact your doctor immediately if you have unusual:

  • Fatigue or weakness
  • Loss of appetite
  • Pain in your upper abdomen
  • Dark-colored urine
  • Yellowing of your skin or eyes.

~ Increased Blood Sugar

This risk is so high that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a warning on statin labels regarding blood glucose levels and diabetes. Yikes!

Natural and Side-Effect-FREE Options…

We have what you need to avoid blood clots, strokes and heart attacks. With NO harmful side-effects like statin drugs offer. What you really need is to prevent clots from forming. Easily done with Systemic Enzymes.

Systemic Enzymes Work
To Prevent Blood Clots and Heart Attacks

The Dangers of Excess Fibrin…

Fibrin is a protein that forms in your blood after trauma or injury. It’s essential to stop excess blood loss. Bacteria, viruses, fungi and toxins in your blood trigger inflammation and more excess fibrin.

Excess fibrin circulates in your blood and sticks to the walls of blood vessels. Contributes to the formation of blood clots. They can block blood flow and oxygen to your brain and/or heart. Causing heart attacks or senility.

Excess fibrin also slows blood flow and increases blood viscosity (thickness). This elevates your blood pressure.

Thrombolytic Enzymes Will “Eat” Your Excess Fibrin

Thrombolytic enzymes (Nattokinase) break down blood clots. They’re naturally generated in the endothelial cells of blood vessels. With age, your enzyme production declines, making your blood more prone to coagulation. Potentially leading to blood clots and/or heart attacks. And other conditions.

In Japan, they estimate that blood clots have caused dementia in 60% of the senile patients.

Excess fibrin also causes less blood vessel flexibility, and high blood sugar.

Nattokinase is a Thrombolytic Enzyme

Thrombus = clot

Nattokinase breaks down fibrin to prevent clots, reduces blood stickiness, and improves your cardiovascular health. Excellent for people concerned with blocked arteries or blood clotting. Or those needing to stop taking statin drugs.

Dr. Hiroyuki Sumi, M.D. (they call him Dr. Natto) is a researcher of the Japan Ministry of Education. Majoring in the physiological chemistry at the blood laboratory of the University of Chicago. He researches thrombolytic enzymes.

He searched for a natural agent that could successfully dissolve blood clots. One day in 1980 Dr. Sumi took the natto that he was eating for lunch (natural sources of natto are (azuki beans, Korean ginseng, Japanese water dropwort) and dropped a small portion onto a plate of artificial fibrin. The natto dissolved the thrombus and had completely resolved it in 18 hours! Dr. Sumi named the corresponding fibrinolytic enzyme “nattokinase”. It has a potency matched by no other enzyme.

The Importance of Protease and Lipase

Enzymes are the metabolic driving force throughout your entire body. Proteolytic and Lipolytic enzymes are able to break down proteins, fats, toxins, and cellular waste. In your blood stream and whole body. A healthy blood stream maximizes nattokinase enzymes to function at full potential.

Proteolytic enzymes break down protein, and are often referred to as proteases. These enzymes help your body’s immune system break down toxins, foreign proteins, pathogens and dead cells. This reduces stress from other body systems. Also help balance your body’s pH level.

Lipolytic enzymes break down fat. Poor fat and lipid metabolism can lead to cardiovascular imbalances. Because fats are a major source of fuel for the heart and brain. A healthy person’s body is between 20-24% fat cells. Yet some fats and lipids such as triglycerides can harm your cardiovascular system. Lipase can help control triglyceride and LDL cholesterol levels.
