The explosion of blood pressure and cholesterol medications on the market today is staggering. Doctors prescribe both these medications like candy. According to the Harvard Health Letter, in 2011 (2 years ago), 32 million Americans were taking a statin (cholesterol medication) to lower their cholesterol.
It doesn't look like all those medications are doing a good job. All those medications, whether they're for cholesterol, blood pressure, blood sugar or acetaminophen for inflammation--they're doing NOTHING at all to address the root of the problem. The medications are addressing the symptoms of disease, making our numbers look good--giving us a false sense of security. Here's a perfect example....
Remember Tim Russert the newscaster? He had perfect blood pressure and cholesterol numbers because he was on massive amounts of medications daily. His doctors gave him a clean bill of health--two weeks later a 'gel plaque" burst in his artery and killed him. Gel plaques are little plaque formations inside arteries that look like pimples. They rupture causing a clot to form, the clot prevents blood flow in the artery causing a heart attack. This happens all over America everyday.
The craziness of all this is, the statins that the 32 million Americans take everyday does absolutely NOTHING to prevent gel plaques from rupturing! And, what about all the side effects from a cholesterol pill--muscle aches, fatigue, depression, headaches, difficulty sleeping, flushing, dizziness, nausea, abdominal cramping, bloating, gas, diarrhea, constipation, rashes, impotence, diabetes, forgetfulness, and confusion, just to name a few.
Life long cigarette smokers won't heal their lungs by switching to cigars--they have to QUIT altogether. The same goes for arteries--taking a pill and eating animal products won't heal your arteries.
The New England Journal of Medicine reported 50% of the time vessels used in bypass surgery taken from a leg or arm will SHUT DOWN within 12-18 months...50%...that's huge!
Americans have become so accustomed to chronic illness, we just assume that heart disease, stroke and cancers are like wrinkles--we are bound to get them. This is NOT TRUE. These diseases are certainly common, just take a look around..the majority of adults have some form of heart disease, (high blood pressure, high cholesterol, stents, bypass surgery performed), and we all know people that have cancer...not to mention all the other chronic diseases people have.
The answer is NOT another pill, doctor or procedure...unbelievably, the answer is in front of our faces..but we've been blind because we have no idea the answer is so simple. The only tool that can actually reverse the buildup of plaque is your FORK!
