What Is Cholesterol?

  • Cholesterol is a waxy steroid substance in the body.

  • 75% of the cholesterol in your body is produced by your liver.

  • HDL (high density lipo-proteins) carry old cholesterol back to the liver to be recycled. Considered to be the “good” cholesterol.

  • LDL (low density lipo-proteins) carry cholesterol to the tissue. Considered the “bad” cholesterol. But is it bad? Or is it saving your life.


Why You NEED Cholesterol

  • You can’t survive without it. Every cell in your body is made of cholesterol.

  • Sex hormones are all made from cholesterol.

  • Stress hormones are made from cholesterol. So if you are under stress, your body is going to produce more cholesterol so your adrenal glands can produce stress hormones.

  • Protect damaged arteries  – Cholesterol is the body’s Band-aid for damaged torn arteries. It saves your life!! Without it your artery would tear and you would bleed to death.


High Cholesterol

High cholesterol is a symptom of a bigger problem, it’s not the cause. If you have high cholesterol, your body is trying to tell you something because your body is in crisis mode trying to heal itself. It’s sending a Band-aid to protect damaged arteries. High cholesterol does not cause disease. Disease causes high cholesterol.


Cholesterol Lowering Drugs (Statins)

Based on what we’ve learned so far, if you take statins to lower your cholesterol, you are not fixing anything. In fact you are probably doing more harm than good because…

  • Statins may cause brain damage and liver damage

  • Statins don’t get to the root issue

  • Statins come with dangerous side effects

  • Statins create inflammation in the liver which halts cholesterol production in the body. The very cholesterol your body is producing to heal itself.


The Root Cause of High Cholesterol

The root cause of high cholesterol is inflammation from poor diet, stress, and free radical damage (oxidative stress). When the arteries become inflamed it goes into healing mode, and begins to produce more cholesterol to go protect and heal the tears in the arterial walls.
