Better Body Chemistry

for High Cholesterol

Cholesterol stuck in a blood vessel

The cholesterol that’s clogging your arteries doesn’t come from the blood

The war on cholesterol, although laudable, is not going to “fix” atherosclerosis, because the blockage starts deep inside the blood vessel, the vasa vasorum is to blame

cholesterol production being turned off

How to lower cholesterol production safely

HMG co-reductase, the enzyme responsible for cholesterol production, should knock off, at night. Find out why he doesn’t knockoff…and how to safely boot him out.

No need to panic if your cholesterol level is high on a high fat diet

For cell membranes to work, they MUST HAVE cholesterol – how much, depends on what else you’re eating….the more your eat, the easier it is, to get what’s needed

sun sucking up cholesterol

Make sure you have your “annual” check-up in the summer time

Your cholesterol level is going to move up and down during the course of the day, the week, the month, the year. In winter it will be at its highest.

insulin making killer clots

Insulin steers the assembly of killer blood clots

The details are still a little fuzzy but insulin is definitely part of the story of atherosclerotic plaque formation in the carotid artery.

Meet the real villain in the high cholesterol saga

If you want to avoid a cardiac event you need to do more than lower LDL, you need to keep sugar levels in check as sugar turns ordinary LDL into a sticky glob.

statin causing a muscle attack

When statins attack muscles the effect is deep seated

Statins are prescribed to protect people from heart attacks. But, statins can go on the offensive and attack skeletal muscles by ripping them open

cholesterol helping a neuron

The brain is a big fan of cholesterol, shouldn’t you be too ?

It takes a healthy dose of oxidised cholesterol (oxysterol), to get human embryonic stem cells to grow into dopamine-producing nerve cells.

The more saturated fat you eat, the lower your blood fat levels

High fatty acid levels are risky….. you’d think eating a diet high in saturated fats, would amplify the problem, it doesn’t, it does just the opposite.

blocked blood vessels start with sugar

Blood vessels clog up when they become sticky

A special non-stick layer, known as the glycocalyx, prevents things from sticking to the sides of blood vessels. When it’s not there, atherosclerosis happens.

40 years after cholesterol trial

If you count bodies, not cholesterol levels, vegetable oils are deadly

Substituting vegetable oils for saturated fat, definitely lowers your cholesterol levels. But does this protect your from heart disease ? In a word – NO.

how to manage your anger

Anger management begins with recognizing you are hopping mad

We all have them – people that make us hot under the collar……….. being near them is bad for your body chemistry. The solution, BE ANGRY.

hdl cholesterol

Your arteries need an efficient clean up crew not a statin

Bad body chemistry creates the mess. It is unfortunate, but not a disaster, because the liver dispatches HDL particles, to bring the superfluous cholesterol back to base

statins cause cholesterol

Statins lower cholesterol but raise sugar levels and this is bad

When cholesterol levels are TOO low, sugar levels rise, because, the uptake of sugar, depends on cholesterol. Too much sugar is the real cause heart disease.

cholesterol in perspective

Putting high cholesterol in perspective

High cholesterol is seen as the kiss of death….. If your LDL level has crept up, a little – IT MUST BE BROUGHT DOWN. Well maybe, maybe not.
