How to Reduce Calcium Scores
Jim has an elevated coronary calcium score in the 95% percentile indicating high risk for future heart attack. He is being treated by his cardiologist with daily aspirin and atorvastatin (lipitor), a statin drug to reduce cholesterol.
Currently we are following a number of similar patients with elevated coronary calcium score treated with Continue reading
There is not enough evidence to support the practice of western medicine as it is presently practiced. The entire system of medicine in the United States is broken, not only because the toxic medicines they use kill so many people but also because the insurance programs that fund expensive medicine do not work as effective payment systems. Although more Americans have health insurance coverage, 25% of non-elderly Americans do not have enough liquid assets to cover the deductible on their health insurance plan, according to a new report from the Kaiser Family Foundation.

Fibromyalgia, like most modern day ‘syndromes,’ is considered ‘idiopathic’ – a fancy word for “we don’t know,” and often times used as an excuse for not looking deeper into the root causes of the patient’s suffering. Conventional treatment is palliative at best, and harmful at worst — all the more reason why natural approaches are so greatly needed.

There is a new hidden cause of illness and it is found in your medicine cabinet. The culprit: the world’s most commonly prescribed prescription medication. The cause: fatigue. Are you on statin drugs? Could they be causing your fatigue?

I’ll bet you know what your cholesterol level is, but chances are that you never heard of homocysteine. Well, the cholesterol theory has never been proven but everybody believes that it has. So the pharmaceutical companies make billions of dollars on this myth. But it’s your homocysteine that’s the real villain in heart disease and other chronic illness. And you can do something about it.
Many cardiologists build their practice on testing and prescribing cholesterol (statin) drugs. It is not by accident, because many millions of dollars have been spent to promote the cholesterol theory.
It’s a medical craze and it’s a money maker. The point is that most people who get heart disease have normal cholesterol levels in their blood. In fact, scientists have proven that pure cholesterol does not cause arteriosclerosis and that elevation of blood cholesterol is a symptom, not a cause, of heart disease.
