Question: Why would you stop the production of cholesterol if its function as an antioxidant is to slow or prevent the oxidative damage caused by substances in the body
called free radicals (these are the bad guy cells)? That is what statin drugs do, you know. Wouldn’t it be better to find out what is causing the cholesterol number to be elevated in the first place? Do you really think that taking a pill is the answer?
Recently, I was asking these very questions during a conversation I was having with Dr. Edward W. Pearson of the New Medicine Foundation. I was searching for the logical truth behind the use of statins to control cholesterol. Here is your opportunity to get educated and save your life or the life of a loved one. Once it was explained to me in detail, it made perfect sense.
Answer: There is really no ‘bad’ natural chemical in the body; hence, there is no “bad” cholesterol. Think about it. Our body has response mechanisms in place to help us during times of imbalance. These are key markers telling us that something is amiss and that we need to find out what it is and correct it. So why would you take a pill to stop something that is trying to give us a message. The way I see it, you are killing the messenger instead of heeding the warning.
We need to look at the big picture. We become imbalanced and toxic with unnatural chemicals found in our food, drugs, water supply, air, etc. High LDL (this is the so-called “bad” cholesterol) in ratio to low HDL (this is the so-called “healthy” cholesterol) needs to be in balance. Too much of either in either direction isn’t healthy.
Cholesterol drugs do ONE thing, they artificially stop and block the liver’s enzyme and ability to create the LDL. This is an unnatural process. LDL is being created as a natural response to stress and oxidation signals to the liver. Simply stopping the production of LDL does nothing, and actually makes the body more sick and even more out of balance.
The drugs being prescribed to combat the LDL are toxic. The liver is blocked and damaged (thus high liver enzymes). The true causes of the high LDL, the stressors causing the imbalanced signals in the first place, are ignored and even worsened.
Now for the real education; plaques in our arteries are actually like scabs and are made up of several compounds that are naturally there, responding to the problem in the “sick” arteries in the first place. The plaque that is present is actually made up of white blood cells which are our key immune cells. These are the platelets that help us to stop bleeding. LDL cholesterol which is an antioxidant, along with a few other substances helps to prevent and/or repair damage to body cells.
By severely limiting the production of cholesterol the plaque can be a bit smaller, but the artery is still sick and now a host of other problems and side effects occur. If the same was attempted by reducing white blood cells or platelets, the side effects would be lethal.
In my opinion, all you are doing when you take statin drugs is prolonging the inevitable. You are in effect, robbing Peter to pay Paul. This makes no sense to me at all. Seems to me that we need to find out what is causing the elevated cholesterol in the first place. Stopping its production is insane. As I see it, it is only causing further damage and leading to problems like heart disease, diabetes, immune issues, infections, and cancers.
We already have the answers for reversing cholesterol imbalances. As Dr. Pearson pointed out, when the stressors are removed along with toxins, and when deficiencies are restored and natural balance returns to the body, cholesterol issues no longer exist. It is amazing to me what a little body detoxification, natural compound deficiency replacement and some continued education can do in a matter of weeks.
With educated guidance, LDL typically drops dramatically as a side effect, upwards of 50-60 points or more in a few short weeks while treatment significantly raises HDL naturally, something big pharmacy has yet to discover and can only boast death as the result of trying to find the answer. And bigger yet, this is not rocket science folks. Anyone can learn how it works and put the protocol into practice. It is easy and quick and is done from most any home in the world with a little guidance.
When we realize and accept that our health shouldn’t be used to keep the world economy afloat and the fat cats rolling in dough, maybe then the change needed will befall all of us. I am not a doctor or a rocket scientist but I tell you once you venture down this path, you don’t need to be. As I have come to realize, this is not difficult to understand once it is explained.
*Dr. Edward W. Pearson received his undergraduate training in Microbiology and Chemistry from the University of Florida, and his medical degree with an Academic Excellence Award from the University of South Florida, College of Medicine. Being displeased with what he saw in conventional medicine, after completing his internship and a short time in a Physical Medicine residency, Dr. Pearson set out on his own to find the education that would teach him how to truly heal people and prevent the epidemics of chronic illness plaguing humanity.
He is now becoming a worldwide expert in the field of true, integrated healthcare. He is certified by the American Board of Integrative / Holistic Medicine and receives ongoing training from the best educators in the world.
