Many doctors will complain if their patient comes in with a bag full of vitamins but don’t blink an eye when a patient comes in with 6 or 8 or even 10 bottles of medications. So often drugs while masking one symptom will cause other symptoms necessitating another medication.
An example is the multi-billion dollar “statin” medications. Doctors have found that sudden cardiac arrest results from high C-reactive protein, not high cholesterol. C- reactive protein is a marker of inflammation and unless you become informed the drug industry and medical profession will lead you to believe that it is due to a “statin” deficiency.
High C-reactive protein can be caused by infections, as well as by chemicals in the environment. So one needs to find the source of the inflammation. The inflammation causes cholesterol to bind to injuries in the arteries. This binding becomes a Band-Aid, in effect, one that we do not want to interfere with by taking statin drugs, which turn off the enzyme the body uses to make cholesterol.
I wonder as the medical profession keeps pushing for lower and lower cholesterol levels if they have forgotten the benefits of cholesterol. We need cholesterol for the sex hormones testosterone and estrogen, and other stress hormones like adrenalin, and for bile acids needed to absorb fat soluble vitamins A,D,E and K.
It is time that patients take matters in their own hands and get off the drug merry-go-round.
