This is not medical advice I am posting this for informational and educational purposes.
There are many myths about cholesterol that is propagated by the pharmaceutical industry to boost their profits and by the medical community out of ignorance. They are taught to believe things that are not scientifically or factually true about fat and cholesterol. In feeding the pharmaceutical greed machine they are causing a lot of suffering and will be held accountable by God. These links show the truth about heart disease, cholesterol and fats. At the end of this I listed things that may help with heart disease. The beginning shows the truth about cholesterol and the rest discusses how statins actually contributed to increased mortality and declining health especially mental health.
Symptoms of low cholesterol.
Low cholesterol can increase risk of death.
The believed HDL was good cholesterol and LDL was bad but they are finding you need a balance of the two. If HDL levels get too high it can cause inflammation. Inflammation lead to heart disease.
I posted links to information on how to lower cholesterol at the end of this post. For now lets address the myths surrounding cholesterol.
There was a man who ate 25 eggs a day all his life and was very healthy.
There are many benefits to cholesterol in the diet.
Worlds most renown heart specialist speak out about the true cause of heart disease.
Cholesterol protects us from infections.
There is no link between high cholesterol and heart disease.
Low cholesterol levels have been linked to higher mortality rates.
High cholesterol is linked to lower mortality.
Simple reasoning should have people thinking fat and cholesterol have been dramatically reduce in the diet in the U.S. , yet obesity and heart disease has climbed dramatically.
Here is another good website with links to information on cholesterol.
For those who like watching videos here is a video on cholesterol and heart health.
Here is another video with the best advice I have seen on lowering blood pressure.
A high egg diet does not cause a higher risk of cardiovascular disease.
Eating eggs improves our good cholesterol levels and does not increase the oxLDL or increased it very little.
Even if eggs raise LDL levels those with high LDL levels have a lower risk of heart disease and diabetes.
Observational studies have shown that eating eggs does not increase cholesterol and in some instances it improved lipid profiles.
Cholesterol protects us from inflammation.
Eggs actually improve our antioxidant satus especially if the chickens are fed a diet high in antioxidants. Free range chickens eat a lot of antioxidant rich foods.
Not all eggs are the same there is a nutritional difference between free range and caged chicken eggs. Free range have more nutrients.
Processed sugar causes hardening of the arteries. The sugar industry started the myth about cholesterol and fat to hide the fact hey were causing the heart disease.
Issues with bile production which can be caused by gut dysbiosis, vaccine injury, farm chemicals found in our food, heavy metals and many other things can lead to gallbladder problems. That can lead to cardiovascular disease.
We need fat to protects us from developing diabetes.
They make starch out to be a villain and claim it leads to obesity and heart disease but that is not true.
They paint sugar as a villain even the sugar in fruits sugar in fruit prevents heart disease.
Vitamins C prevents heart disease but if taken in mega doses it destroys red blood cells and causes cardiovascular disease.
Low cholesterol causes depression, suicidal thoughts and aggressiveness.
Cholesterol is needed to keep the brain healthy.
Inflammation if not addressed can lead to cardiovascular disease. Inflammation is a sign the body is trying to heal and we need to assist it.
There are many things that can cause high C Reactive levels in the blood. This causes inflammation. Tick born illness and many other infections can cause it. Toxins like glyphosate can cause high C Reactive levels and it has been found to be high in much of the food we consume. Also heavy metals and vaccine injury can cause high C Reactive levels. So it is very important to address these things to get our C Reactive levels down.
Flouride found I chorinated water, mouthwash and toothpaste causes hardening of the artieries.
Aluminum which is found in vaccine adjuvants causes hardening of the artieries.
Many things cause oxidative stress, heavy metals, vaccine injury, infection, farm chemicals found in our food especially glyphosate. If we do not address the oxidative stress it can lead to heart disease.
Low cholesterol damages the brain.
Cholesterol dysfunction can lead to autism.
I could literally post hundreds of studies showing vaccines damage the heart.
Our bodies cannot make hormones without cholesterol and those are needed by every part of the body and dramatically effects the brain.
Truth About Statins and cholesterol lowering drugs.
This summarizes the preceding links on the effects of statins our a persons health.
Side effects of Lipitor and other statins.
Now the statin research shows that it causes hypocholesterolemia which means a deficiency in cholesterol. They view that as a good thing but if you look at the proceeding research your will see that has a very bad impact on a persons health.
Statins increase risk of stroke.
Low cholesterol increases risk of stroke.
Statins destroy the brain because they are neurotoxic.
Discontinuing statin use restores memory.
Statins inhibit the very pathway needed to fight infection which causes autoimmunity. Autoimmunity can also lead to cancer.
Statins cause lupus.
Statins can cause hepatitis and kidney damage.
The many ill health effects of statins have been proven but the safety and effectiveness still has not been proven.
Statins have been linked to diabetes.
Statins increase risk of cancer.
Statins damage the lungs.
Statins cause inflammation.
Statins reduce CoQ10 which results in muscle decline and mental decline.
Statins damage the muscles.
This links explains the symptoms of the myopathy.
Statins cause cholesterol escape phenomena and they do not know the consequences.
Statins cause antiphospholipid syndrome which can lead to endothelial damage. Farm chemicals and vaccine injury can also cause it.
Vaccine inujury, mycoplasma infection, heavy metals , and farm chemicals can cause autoimmunity. This can lead to antiphospholipid syndrome which leads to many forms of chronic illness..
If you show sign of antiphopholipid syndrome it is very important to prevent thrombosis.
Statins contribute to heart disease.
Statins cause hardening of the arteries.
A drug that needs mentioned is fluoroquinolones. They damage the whole body especially the heart. The proceeding links will explain POTS. It is when you get dizzy when standing or taking a hot shower. It is life threatening but most cardiologist and doctors brush it off.
Infections can cause heart disease.
Tick born illness can cause heart disease.
Dental infections can cause heart disease.
Mast Cell Activation Syndrome can cause POTS. Vaccine injury , farm chemicals which contaminate our food can cause it. Toxins especially heavy metals can cause it and nutrient deficiencies can cause MCAS,
Farm chemicals especially glyphosate causes heart disease. Glyphosate is found to be in most of our food supply.
Vaccine induced heart disease.
We know oxidative stress causes heart disease.
Sleep deprivation causes heart disease. Statins cause sleep deprivation.
High TMAO levels cause heart disease. This is usually the result of gut dysbiosis caused by antibiotics and other pharmaceuticals, artificial sweeteners can cause it, also farm chemicals especially glyphosate can cause it.
Leaky gut and our gut bacteria effect the health of our whole body. It raises histamines which cause hypertension or carditis.
How Glyphosate effects the gut and health of the body.
Vitamin B12 status can effect our heart. I do not say deficiency because in some they could have high B12 levels but if they have high levels of farm chemicals from eating foods that contain them it will inhibit their bodies ability to convert it to a usable for. Those who are not converting will get headaches when they take B12 and my feel ill. Often times because they know low B12 can cause irregular heart beats they will give IV B12 which can make someone who is not converting very ill.
There are many things that can effect bile acid production. If it is inhibited we can develop diabetes because it can effect the whole body including the heart. It also effects the pancreas and when it is inhibited the pancreas will produce less digestive enzymes which will make our food sit in our digestive tract and ferment. This will make us bloated and will make it feel like we have a heavy weight sitting in our guts. This can cause H Pylori and Candida to go from commensal to pathogenic form. I have posted on how to balance our gut bacteria. It can also cause us to develop either acidosis or alkalosis. If you have candida you will have alkalosis and will experience anxiety and difficulty sleeping. If you have acidosis you will be very drowsy and experience episodes of severe depression. I have posted on all the above mentioned.
Metabolic and autoimmune issues can cause heart diesease.
I have posted on sulfites and sulfation. If we have high sulfite levels or we have sulfation issues it can cause heart disease. Sulfur is very important for regulating many things throughout the body including hormones and blood pressure. Glyphosate, glufosinate and mercury inhibit sulfation.
This can effect BH4 levels. Green Tea raises BH4 levels but must be used in moderation because over use can raise histamine levels.
Proteinuria can be brought on by many things. It can be corrected but could be a sign there are high sulfite levels or sulfation issues. If not addressed it can lead to diabetes, heart disease and even death.
How our lifestyle can effect our heart and our sex life.
Stress cannot be avoided that is why it is necessary to work on learning to handle stress and not let it overwhelm us. It has a very bad impact on on our health especially the cardiovascular system.
This is talking about genetic issues and autoimmune disorders that can cause heart disease. We know many of these negative epigenetic changes are caused by man and can be corrected. Most autoimmunity is induced by man with toxins like glyphosate, heavy metals and vaccines. We must address those to correct the cardiovascular issues.
Trans Fats found in fast food and processed food causes cardiovascular disease.
Discussion of nutrients and their effects on blood pressure and what deficiencies do to the cardiovascular system.
Those with cardiovascular disease have been found to be low in certain nutrients which causes high homocysteine levels.
Issues with Lipocalin 2 can cause heart disease. It modulates iron hemiostasis. Gut dysbiosis, infection, farm chemicals, heavy metals and antibiotics can disrupt Lipocalin 2 function.
Things that may help with heart disease.
Fiber from plantain reduces risk of heart disease.
Cholesfytol reduces heart disease.
Green Tea reduces LDL.
Beta Glucan found in oatmeal reduce oxLDL. It is also found in mushrooms.
Fiber reduces oxLDL.
Reducing oxidative stress reduces hypertension. Cholesterol reduces oxidative stress.
Fasting reduces oxLDL and repairs the heart.
I did a blog post on things that reduce oxLDL.
These are things that help with POTS.
Things that help lower TMAO. Some nutrients do and so do some probiotics.
This is a list of nutrients that help with heart disease and it discussed why they work. It helps to put into perspective some of the causes of heart disease.
The Mediterranean diet reduces heart disease because it reduces oxidative stress and inflammation. They mention curcumin in here. It has amazing healing abilities but chelates iron from the body so it is something that should be used in moderation so a person does not make themselves anemic. It should not be a problem in the U.S. because GMOs and glyphosate cause nutrient deficiencies so they fortify the foods with iron. Because of that many have very high levels of iron which can cause heart disease.
This paper reviewed the research on fats and their effects on the body. Omega 3s help reduce heart disease including myocarditis. But there is times only fats can cause problems. If a person has pyrrole issues which can be a symptom of porphyria they will have problems with fats. It is a very serious health problem that can be corrected with the correct nutrients and lifestyle changes. I have posted in it. There are a number of types of Omega fatty acids. The American diet is high in Omega 6 which has been shown to cause inflammation. Omega 3 Fatty acids should be at a higher level then Omega 6 in the body. Because they are involved in the regulation of many metabolic pathways, consuming too much Omega 6 can cause many health problems. Metabolic syndrome is a cause of diabetes and heart disease.
Histidine helps protect the heart. This may seem confusing but if you read my post on high and low histamines it will explain. Histidine deficiency can cause many negative health effects. Aromatase enzyme are important for it’s proper function. Glyphosate, glufosinate and some foods can inhibit aromatase which can raise ammonia levels in the body resulting in alkalosis. Histidine is important in our response to stress.
Now the bad and it shows the importance of nutrients and homeostasis. A folate deficiency (not folic acid it is toxic) can raise histidine levels which can cause histamine levels to go too high resulting in chronic illness. So the most important thing is to focus on balancing nutrient and histidine levels.
This is a good article explaining histamines in depth.
Heart attack occur more in the winter because of vitamin D deficiency. Guess where Eskimos got their vitamin D. From the animal fat they consumed.
The way we breath can effect our blood pressure. Breathing deeply can lower blood pressure. If we have acidosis we will breath quickly and shallow to reduce CO2 levels which will reduce the acid levels. If we have alkalosis we may breath deeply and very slowly almost to the point were take very few breaths per minute. We must address the issues that are causing the alkalosis or acidosis before breathing will be effective.
The ketogenic diet has been shown to help with oxLDL but I do not believe in staying on one specific diet. The body was made to consume a variety of foods and once homeostasis is achieved I feel it is better to start adding other types of foods to the diet.
Now on the other side of the coin too much potassium can cause problems that is why we should always focus on homeostasis.
Endothelins role in cardiovascular disease and how to decrease them.
Aldosterone though not an herb regulates water and electrolyte balance in the body which can have dramatic effects on our blood pressure and the heart. Sodium Bicarbonate in the mineral water helps with hypertension also.
Black Sativa is a super food. It could be listed in just about any healing remedies from diabetes to mental illness. It also helps with high blood pressure and carditis.
Butyric Acid also known as butyrate is great for healing throughout the body. It is produced by our gut bacteria when we eat fiber, consume milk products and certain carbohydrates. It is needed by the brain and helps fight inflammation and oxidative stress. When deficient in it we can develop leaky gut which can lead to heart disease.
PQQ is another nutrient that has amazing healing properties. It even helps heal neurological damage.
Okra is another plant with amazing healing properties. It is in the mallow family, most plants in the mallow family have amazing health benefits.
Cissus has too many benefits to list.
Peas are ACE inhibitors but you have to make sure they are organic. The farm chemicals on non organic cause heart disease.
Rice bran is an antioxidant and is an ACE inhibitor.
Sunflower seeds reduce the chances of heart disease. You have to make sure they are from a source that is grown in soil that is not contaminated. They are very good at pulling radiation from the soil. If you sprout them they are more nutritious.
Nattokinase thins the blood , it helps with thrombosis by preventing blog clots.
Gingko inhibits bradykinin which contributes to tachycardia. But I have seen a study that showed that renal damage starts to occur if taken for an extended amount of time. It really helped me with my brain fog but I had a strange reaction to it. The first couple of days I got a really bad headache when I took it. But I continued to take it and on about the fourth day I could feel my brain fog starting to lift. I still take it once in a while to help keep the brain fog from coming back but until I am certain of the toxicity I will not take it often. I have only seen one study on the toxicity and there was a lot of data missing leaving me uncertain if it was the gingko that caused the renal damage. Sophora root helps with just about any type of heart disease. It really helped my carditis.
Be pollen is a supper food. It has many proteins that the body can easily use without having to work hard to use. It also has many minerals the body needs. Hence it reduces inflammation which causes arteriosclerosis.
Burdock reduces inflammation and oxidative stress. Diabetes and heart disease can be caused by oxidative stress and inflammation which leads to metabolic disorders. Burdock also helps with metabolic disorders.
Mugwort raises GABA which causes relaxation and is a calcium channel blocker. They claim thujone is toxic but it takes a very high amount to become toxic. They often do things like that , and I believe it is to deter people from healing so they can keep them on the allopathic hamster wheel. Yeah they tell people to take high levels of iron which is toxic and most in the U.S. have been found to have levels of iron that are too high which causes oxidative stress. Mugwort which has the same phytochemicals as wormwood reduces hypertension.
Rooibos is another amazing herb. It reduces inflammation and prevents thrombosis. It also kills many pathogens especially in the lungs. It also improves breathing.
Bacopa helped me a lot it is great for healing the blood vessels and for reducing inflammation and oxidative stress. This also reduces symptoms of carditis.

Heat Shock Protein 70 can effect our blood pressure and this discusses how to raise and lower it.
Butchers Broom heals the blood vessels. This one helped me a lot it has many healing properties.
This is a type of Golden Rod. Most of the golden rod has similar photchemicals. They are very high in quercitren so are very good for healing.
Low oxygen levels can be caused by acidosis, infection, oxidative stress , COPD and many other health issues. This causes high blood pressure.
PEA helps fight the common cold and flu because it reduces inflammation so would also help hypertension since inflammation causes hypertension.
Maca root seems to inhibit N-acyletholamine acid which would increase PEA levels.
Oxazolidone inhibits NAAA increasing PEA levels.
Antibiotics derived from penicillin inhibit NAAA unfortunately I am allergic to penicillin.
Metabolic syndrome causes an number of illnesses and hypertension and cardiac disease is a few of them. This is a list of plants and their effects are metabolic syndrome.
Pomegranate has been shown to be an ACE inhibitor. I have found more benefits from eating the seeds then drinking the juice.
Astaxantan helps reduce oxidative stress and inflammation. It is high in krill oil.
Prickly Lettuce also known as Opium Lettuce helps protect the heart but must be used in moderation because it has a chemical in it similar to opium but is not addictive.
Saffron is another one of those herbs that has amazing healing abilities. It helps with carditis and hypertension.
Self heal helps fight viruses, inflammation and oxidative stress. It is an Nrf2 activator so it would help with Nrf2 issues which would help with many forms of chronic illness.
Purslane is a super food, it contains almost all the nutrients needed by the body. It has been found to help with heart disease.
Garlic helps with cardiovascular disease. You have to make sure you do not have high sulfite levels or sulfation issues. If you do it will make you worse.
Wild violet is one of my favorite to eat. It has great anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
Flaxseed has many healing properties because it has Omega 3 in it. It must be crushed because we cannot digest it.
Grape seed extract is another that has many amazing healing abilities and protects the cardiovascular system. The only draw back with grape seed extract is that it is high in resveratrol which give it many healing abilities but resveratrol can activate the hepatitis virus so those with hepatitis my want to avoid it and use other herbs that will prevent inflammation and thrombosis.
There are many plant sources of things that help with cardiovascular disease.
Paeonia root helps prevent thrombosis.
Corn silk is another thing that has many health benefits including preventing heart disease.
Camu Camu has many healing abilities so helps with cardiovascular disease. It raises GABA levels which helps with sleep and relaxation.
Grass fed but is one of the best things for any type of illness.
Lycopene is great for healing one of the best sources of it are cooked tomatoe skins.
Thiamine deficiency can lead to hypertension and chronic illness.
Those who are G6PD deficient or have certain metabolic issues would get ill from the foods that contain thiamine so they may have to supplement thiamine until they have corrected those issues.
Hawthorne leaves and fruit have many health benefits. They help with hypertension and carditis. They have also been found to fight many forms of cancer.
White malberry helps with hypertension.
Nattokinase helps prevent thrombosis. Thrombosis can be a result of infection especially tick born illness and vaccine injury which causes antiphospholipid syndrome. This can result in cardiovascular disease.
This is how nattokinase prevents heart disease.
Rooibos also helps prevent thrombosis.
Arjuna inhibits thrombosis which helps with cardiovascular disease.
There are many other naturals that help inhibit thrombosis.
I have posted on HSP70 it prevents thrombosis without causing excessive bleeding.
Tenascan-C is needed for heart repair. But if it is too high it can cause health problems. Homeostasis should be the goal.

High tenascan-c levels increases risk of cancer.
Vitamin B6 deficiency can lead to heart disease.
Flavonolignans help prevent thrombosis.
Ghrelin anti-aging mechanism.
Beta glucan reduces risk of heart disease and has many other beneficial properties.
Reduces blood pressure.
Rooibos protects the heart by reducing oxidative stress and by reducing inflammation. Rooibos is also an ACE inhibitor.
Tenascan-C is needed for heart repair. High Tenascan-C levels can cause heart problems so the goal should be homeostasis.
Tenascan-C is high in COPD
High tenascan-c levels increases risk of cancer.
