Your LDL cholesterol is like a balloon that gets statically charged (when electrons are rubbed off) and then is able to stick to a wall. LDL cholesterol will not stick to your arterial walls (form plaque) unless electrons are rubbed off, which is what happens with oxidation by free radicals. When electrons are stripped away by stress hormones (cortisol), tobacco smoke, or by any free radical damage, the cholesterol is damaged, and becomes "sticky." It now sticks within the nicks in the artierial walls, which were in turn caused by oxidation from excessive homocysteine levels.
That is precisely why YOU can have a perfectly NORMAL LDL cholesterol level and still get heart disease, …because although the level of your LDL cholesterol may be normal, the condition of it is not. Oxidation leads to inflammation and plaque formation within the arteries no matter what your cholesterol level is. In fact, the majority of people dying of heart disease have NORMAL LDL cholesterol levels! The reason: because their LDL cholesterol and arteries are oxidized year after year and plaque develops despite normal LDL cholesterol levels. So, HOW MUCH good are we doing by simply lowering their LDL cholesterol with statin drugs?
If YOU are not taking vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and the essential fatty acids then your LDL cholesterol is being oxidized. It IS sticking to your arterial walls, and you ARE developing heart disease EVEN IF YOUR CHOLESTEROL LEVELS ARE NORMAL! And, this has been going on for years. You have been developing heart disease from childhood. The good news is, you CAN do something about this disease process, and the answer is NOT found with the use of drugs and more drugs. It is with lifestyle changes: a good diet, exercise, reduced stress, plenty of sleep, weight management, and most importantly a quality nutritional supplement program involving a wide array of antioxidants to protect your cholesterol and arterial walls.
Please be advised that you must NOT make any changes, such as coming off cholesterol medications without a thorough discussion with your physician regarding such medications based upon any materials produced by Ladd McNamara. These materials are for informational purposes only. Do not attempt to self-treat or diagnose. Discuss this information, especially the information found in The Cholesterol Conspiracy with your physician, and ONLY after such a discussion with your doctor should you together come up with an appropriate treatment plan. It is highly advised that you discuss this information with a doctor who has a keen understanding of the importance and knowledge of the power of quality nutritional supplements.
