The Truth About Cholesterol
By: Dr. Skip Hellen ND, CNC (Health Doctor)
 Rev. 11/15/2013

Currently, the statin drug industry generates well over $20 billion dollars annually on this drug alone. In fact, the pharmaceutical industry (big pharma) produces more annual revenues from this single class of drugs (statins) than all the USA professional sports entertainment enterprise annual revenues combined. It may come as no surprise that this represents a huge incentive to perpetuate these profits regardless of the ill health side effects and health damaging consequences. These large profits has given rise to an enormous propaganda advertising machine to protect these revenues.

The medical industry has been corrupted by big profits and has lost sight on their sworn Hippocratic oath “DO NO HARM.” Big pharma not only is focused only on maximizing profits, it effectively controls the medical industry and corrupted it in the process. There simply are no short cuts to health. There are however, effective ways to bring the body back into balance with nature (homeostasis - optimal health) Optimal health, like illness and disease, is a process and requires a specific belief system, education, discipline, healthy behavior and a strong commitment to keep the body in biochemical balance (optimal health), in harmony with nature.

Pharmaceutical prescription drugs are best utilized for very short durations and only when life is threatened. Long term use of any drug has never been in the best interest of a patient and serves only to further destroy the users health and perpetuate profits for the medical and pharmaceutical industries. Unfortunately, a dramatically reduced drug utilization model is diametrically apposed to the best interests of the medical and big pharma industries future profits and enormous power base. Sadly, the powers that be, believe that power, big pharma and medical profits are vastly more important than public health. If this is difficult to comprehend, read "Death by Medicine", the most comprehensive study done on the modern allopathic medical industries.

With all the cholesterol advertising hype and propaganda designed largely to keep the public in the dark regarding this alleged health problem, cholesterol remain among the most misunderstood health subjects for the average consumer. What's worse, cholesterol lowering statin drugs are among the most over prescribed and the most dangerous medications currently on the market.

Understanding the difference between HDL and LDL
Understanding the difference between high-density lipoprotein (HDL) and low-density lipoprotein (LDL) and how they influences human health, is the key to avoiding confusion and not becoming a victim to all the advertising hype and propaganda designed to increase use, revenues and profits. Misunderstanding HDL or so-called "good" cholesterol, and LDL or so-called "bad" cholesterol, is where most of the confusion begins. LDL is referred to as the “bad” cholesterol because it is solid at room temperature, and combines with other substances that can accumulate on interior arterial walls called "arterial plaque." Left unchecked, arterial plaque accumulation can narrow arterial pathways, restrict blood flow, increase blood pressure and encourage local calcium accumulation or hardening of artery walls (atherosclerosis).

Recently, it has become apparent that age, consumptive habits, lack of exercise, gender, tobacco and alcohol use, heredity, lifestyle, weight, and stress have enormous impact on natural HDL and LDL cholesterol level management in the body. According to the National Cholesterol Education Program, HDL (good cholesterol) levels of 60 mg/dl or above are considered high and provide protection against future heart disease, while levels below 40 mg/dl are considered low and are associated with a higher risk of coronary heart disease.

Important cholesterol facts
- A healthy body produces precisely the amount of cholesterol required
- Animal product consumption such as red meat, dairy, poultry, and some sea foods have particularly high concentrations of cholesterol
- Cholesterol is insoluble in water and blood
- Cholesterol is present throughout the body in the cells
- Cholesterol produced in the body serves to build new cell membranes/walls
- Cholesterol is a key component in producing certain hormones
- Excessive consumption of foods rich in cholesterol can increase blood serum levels
- When constantly consuming a cholesterol rich diet, the liver is overwhelmed, the blood thickens (hypercholesterolemia), significantly raising blood pressure and increasing the chance of not only developing arterial plaque (arthrosclerosis), but increases the risk of heart attack and stroke

With cholesterol constituting an extremely important part of cardiovascular and heart health, a prudent cholesterol management program should be part of any healthy lifestyle.

Effectively managing the following factors can help reduce and preventing heart disease
1. Significant risk factors for coronary heart disease

  • Dehydration
  • Diabetes
  • High cholesterol
  • High blood pressure
  • Over weight and obesity
  • Sedentary lifestyle (no exercise)
  • Smoking

    2. Heart healthy consumptive habits (diet)
  • Avoid trans and saturated fats consumption
  • Consume more plant based foods like raw, fresh, organic fruits and vegetables, legumes, whole grains, omega-3 fatty acids and monounsaturated fats
  • Reduce animal product consumption like red meat and dairy
  • Reduce cooked food consumption
  • Reduce processed food consumption

    3. Exercise (regular)
  • Decreases bad (LDL) cholesterol
  • Decreases blood carbonic acid
  • Helps improve attitude
  • Improves arterial elasticity
  • Increases blood oxygen
  • Increases energy
  • Increases good (HDL) cholesterol
  • Lowers blood pressure
  • Lowers stress
  • Strengthens the heart

    The Hidden Danger of Cholesterol Lowering Drugs
    Currently, there are well over 12 million Americans taking cholesterol-lowering drugs, predominantly statin drugs and medical doctors recommend that an additional 23 million should use them. This equals 35 million people or around 10% of the total population. What's wrong with this picture?

    Some of the most commonly prescribed statin drugs are
  • Crestor
  • Lescol
  • Lipitor
  • Mevacor
  • Pravachol
  • Zocor

    While some of the latest scientific research sheds major doubt on the theory that cholesterol is the main cause of heart disease, dangerous cholesterol reducing drugs continue to be prescribed by physicians at a record pace. Statin drugs are not only implicated in a wide variety of ill health symptoms listed below, they expose users to liver disease and cancer.

  • Amnesia
  • Body temperature regulation problems
  • Destroys CoQ10 (nutrient vital for health)
  • Diarrhea and other digestive problems
  • Erectile dysfunction (ED)
  • Impaired motor function and muscle formation
  • Irritability, short temper, hostility, violence and homicidal impulses
  • Kidney damage and failure
  • Liver damage and abnormalities
  • Mental confusion and memory loss
  • Muscle aches, pains and weakness
  • Nausea
  • Nerve damage
  • Sleeping problems
  • Tingling and/or cramping in the legs

    Many of the above ill health side effects can rapidly lead to premature health degradation, illness and disease. Remember, drugs are chemical agents (poisons), designed to force biochemical activity, usually to reduce or eliminate a symptom. Taking these drugs is an enormous risk to take to lower cholesterol a few points. Especially, when specific health education and lifestyle changes like consumptive habits and regular exercise, can significantly lower cholesterol levels with no negative ill health side effects.

    Now that you know the truth about cholesterol, hopefully you will be much less likely to fall victim to the cholesterol propaganda trap and find natural ways to not only lower your cholesterol but achieve internal biochemical balance and harmony (homeostasis), otherwise known as ultimate health.

    Naturopaths seek to resolve health problems (internal biochemical imbalance) with natural remedies by restoring natural internal biochemical balance which is the secret to attaining and maintaining ultimate health. High cholesterol health problems can be controlled with no drugs, a specific health education designed to teach proper internal biochemical management through a prudent healthy lifestyle plan.

    HELP! UHRI has produced optimal health step by step programs designed to guide you through all the challenges of personal excellence and optimal health acquisition. Take the challenge and become the best that you can be, then teach others to do the same.

    "Illness and disease are optional, choose not to participate" ~ Dr. Skip Hellen

    Important understanding
    It’s important to understand that optimal health can only be achieved and maintained when nutritional, physical, and mental requirements are met resulting in systemic biological balance (homeostasis).

    The following are the cornerstones of success with anything in life, make these qualities an important part of your life strategy and you will achieve excellence in anything you do. 

       Personal responsibility encourages excellence,
    requires personal excellence,
    advances positive action,
    strengthens personal power,
    promotes success ~ Dr. Skip Hellen 

    1. (Develop) a strong sense of self respect and discipline
    2. (Pledge) Take the "Declaration of Health Independence" pledge
    3. (Test) Complete the health assessment test (establish a personal health baseline)
    4. (Decide) Set a goal to achieve personal health excellence (optimal health)
    5. (Education) Learn health principles how to achieve optimum health
    6. (Heath Compass) Buy a pH litmus test kit, start testing frequently – keep a test result log
    7. (Manage/Adjust) Change behavior habits for best results
    8. (Commitment) Stay the course until achieving personal health excellence
    9. (Mentor) Help another achieve personal health excellence

    Since behavior habits and nutrition are critical components of human health and longevity, denial, shortcuts and misguided beliefs can be very costly not only in terms of lost monetary wealth but in compromised health leading to rapid aging, illness, disease and death. DON’T TAKE YOUR HEALTH FOR GRANTED. IF YOU DON’T TAKE PROPER CARE OF YOUR HEALTH, WHO WILL?

    The important thing to remember is consumptive habits (foods) will form the foundation of either optimal health or illness and disease. The old saying "you are what you eat" is absolutely true when it comes to health.

    Developing strong personal character (respect, belief, knowledge, discipline, commitment) are the cornerstones of all personal excellence accomplishments. Taking the "Declaration of Health Independence" pledges and adopting the behavior principles solidifies a vital first step on the road to optimal health success. These pledge commitments not only help develop the skills required to accomplish the goal but better define the path to personal health excellence. The second step is purchasing a litmus test kit to accurately monitor health progress. (see below for event test kit sale)

    Perhaps the hardest part of achieving optimal health is changing unhealthy behavior habits to healthy habits.

    YOU provide the Courage, Dedication, Commitment and Action,
