↓ 5 Important & Clinically Proven Reasons You Should NOT Take Statin Drugs
 
06:33
How my parents lowered their cholesterol by 30 pts in 30 days - no diets or drugs. An all natural alternative to statin drugs. ►►►http://drsam.co/yt/NoMoreStatin =============================== 5 Important & Clinically Proven Reasons You Should NOT Take Statin Drugs =============================== Statins are HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors. They work by blocking the enzyme (HMG-CoA reductase) in your liver, that is responsible for making cholesterol. Now, this is very important topic to me personally, because over 15+ years ago my parent’s were prescribed these toxic drugs and they had a ton of negative side-effects. Unfortunately back then, we didn’t have all the data we have now. The pharmaceutical companies did a great job of hiding them. Today I’m going to reveal the top 5, clinically proven reasons, why you should NOT take statin drugs and one of my favorite, natural alternatives that my own parents use. Reason #1 - They DON’T Work! Statin drugs DO lower your cholesterol levels, but don’t think they lower your risk of heart disease, heart attacks or strokes. Based on the statistics of “Relative Risk Reduction (RRR)”, statins reduce the risk for only 1% of the population - that’s it!8 Reason #2 - Increase Your Risk Major Disease, Including Cancer! Statins increase your risk for diabetes. And what’s interesting is that over 50% of people who have heart disease, have elevated glucose and blood sugar levels. So the irony is that the statin drugs will indirectly INCREASE your risk of heart disease by increasing your blood sugar levels. Statins also cause neurodegenerative diseases, such as memory loss, Alzheimer’s, Huntington’s and Parkinson’s. Statins also cause musculoskeletal disorders, leading to muscle pain and weakness (myalgia), muscle cramps and other muscular problems. Statins also cause cataracts, which is a clouding of your eye lens and is a main cause of low vision among the elderly. Finally, statin drugs are known to cause cancer. Reason #3 - Deplete Important Nutrients Statin drugs deplete two very important nutrients in your body. The first is Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10). CoQ10 is used for energy production by every cell in your body, and is therefore vital for good health, high energy levels, longevity, and general quality of life. What’s important to know is that your heart is the most energy-demanding organ in your body. By depleting CoQ10, your heart slowly becomes weaker and ages faster. In addition to CoQ10, statin drug also reduce Vitamin K2. This is important for you to know because Vitamin K2 protects your arteries from calcification. Without it, plaque levels worsen. Reason #4 - Liver Problems & Toxicity Of all the negative side-effects associated with statin drugs, the most common was “drug induced liver injury”… This accounts for a whopping 57% of all statin related “adverse drug reactions”, which included potentially severe and some cases, deadly consequences such as: Death from acute liver failure Liver transplantation Jaundice Liver problems are so bad with statin drugs that each year there are millions of people diagnosed “moderate to serious liver dysfunction”! Remember, your liver detoxifies and cleanses your entire body. Poor liver function greatly accelerates aging! Reason #5 - Natural Alternatives Exist You don’t need to take statin drugs because natural alternatives already exist. Nature already has the answers, NOT the pharmaceutical companies. I’m sure you already know this…. Drugs can be used SHORT-TERM, to quickly improve a health problem … TEMPORARILY. But positive, long-term benefits can only be seen and felt using natural means. This way, you have a proven, simple and convenient solution for your high cholesterol, while being so much safer than statin drugs.

Statins and Cholesterol
 
08:17
Statins are one of the most highly prescribed and commercially successful drugs in modern society, due to their ability to decrease LDL-cholesterol and lower the risk of developing cardiovascular disease. Learn more about the history, mechanism, and side effects of statins in this episode of Medicurio. Other lipoprotein particles: You may have heard of LDL cholesterol as "bad" cholesterol because it clogs up the blood vessels with plaque. Its counterpart, HDL or "good" cholesterol does the opposite - HDL particles move throughout the bloodstream and pick up any cholesterol it finds and brings it back to the liver. Often times, plaque formation is dependent on both how much LDL and how little HDL there is in the blood.

Side Effects of Taking Statins
 
03:36
About 20% of adults over 45 are taking a statin medication. But should they be...and are they all benefitting from it? We talked to an expert to find out, and we're bringing you the bottom line on what everybody should know about taking statin medications. Hi, I'm Pilar Gerasimo with a Bottom Line Expert report on some of the dangerous side effects associated with a class of cholesterol-lowering drugs known as statins. I'm here with Dr. Suzanne Steinbaum, the director of Women's Heart Health at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City. I've heard that statins have been described by some experts as the most dangerous drug on the market. I've heard also that about one in four adults over 45 are currently taking them. So it strikes me that there must be some either very underpublicized risks associated with statins...or we're just not getting the whole story. Every medication has a risk and a benefit. If the risks or side effects outweigh the benefits, that makes the drug dangerous. There have been a lot of people who do not need statins who have been given them, and that makes this drug dangerous for those people. What are some of the side effects associated with statins? One of the most common side effects is muscle aches or body aches, joint pain, oftentimes people feel them in their legs. Some other side effects are elevated liver tests, which could be a problem, but once the statins are stopped, usually those enzymes or liver tests come down. There could be kidney abnormalities if doses of statins are too high. Some people describe fog brain, really sort of this inability to think, and again, when the statin is stopped, these symptoms go away. But those are the most common things we see in people taking statins. What about the special risks for women taking statins? I've heard that particularly with healthy women, taking statins can increase their risk for diabetes. I'm glad you asked that question, because the headline said "Statins Lead to Diabetes in Women," but in that particular study, it looked at women who were at risk for diabetes in the first place. They were given statins, and over time, their diabetes developed. Healthy women shouldn't be taking statins in the first place, but if they are, they're not at risk for diabetes. Wasn't there also a recent study that showed there are actually more people being harmed by taking statins unnecessarily than people without preexisting conditions that were being saved by them? I mean, are millions of people just wasting their money and increasing their risk at the same time? There are many people taking statins who really don't need to be on them, but we know for sure that for people who have had a heart attack or heart disease or stents, statins are lifesaving. If you're at intermediate risk for heart disease and have risk factors—high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, smoking, family history, sedentary lifestyle, stress—and you fit into this category, then a statin should be considered. Short of that, it's not for you. The bottom line on statins—they're not right for everyone, particularly if you don't have more than one risk factor. And they can carry some pretty serious side effects. So to be on the safe side, it's best to check with your doctor and make sure that statins are right for you.

The Dangers of Statins (Cholesterol lowering statin drugs Side Effects LDL cholesterol Myth CoQ10)
 
18:07
Statins (cholesterol-lowering medication) are heavily promoted, used by millions of people and one of the most widely prescribed drugs in the world. Health authorities claim statins reduce the risk of heart disease and strokes because they lower 'bad' LDL cholesterol. Yet these claims are contradicted by statistics and medical studies. http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2010/07/20/the-truth-about-statin-drugs-revealed.aspx http://next-level-nutrition.com/?p=6075 http://naturalnews.com/032448_statin_drugs_scam.html http://www.ravnskov.nu/cholesterol.htm#a The hypothesis is that 'bad' LDL cholesterol clogs up arteries leading to heart attacks and strokes. However, medical research has shown that: 1. People with high cholesterol tend to live longer. 2. People with heart disease tend to have low levels of cholesterol. 3. Lowering cholesterol in a population does not reduce the rate of heart disease. 4. Statins increase(!) the risk of heart disease and strokes. http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2005/05/28/cholesterol-heart.aspx http://drbenkim.com/articles-cholesterol.html http://drmalcolmkendrick.org/the-great-cholesterol-con http://cholesterolconspiracy.blogspot.com http://amazon.com/The-Great-Cholesterol-Myth-Disease/dp/1592335217 Statin drugs have become a huge global industry, generating more than $29 billion each year.

Side Effects Of Cholesterol Medicine
 
03:10
Hi! I'm robo-Suzie and today I'll talk to you about Side Effects Of Cholesterol Medicine. Also don't forget to subscribe for more tips in the future! But back to our topic. Any prescription medication can have side effects. Most of these are not pleasant. The reasoning of why we put up with these side effects is that it is better to deal with them than the condition which the medication treats - in this case, elevated cholesterol levels. Such drugs work to lower cholesterol which, in turn, reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease. There are two popular classes of drugs used to treat high cholesterol. They are specifically aimed at lowering LDL cholesterol. One is the group known as statins and the others are bile acid sequestrants.The most well known of the latter group is Niacin (nicotinic acid) which comes in both prescription form and as a dietary supplement. Popular statin brands are Lipitor, Crestor, Zocor, and Pravachol. Both classes of cholesterol medicine can have troublesome side effects. Higher doses of statins may be associated with a greater risk of side effects such that side effects tend to be dose-related and may disappear after reducing the dosage or, if necessary, withdrawing the medication. However, even if side effects are experienced, cholesterol medication should not normally be discontinued without consulting a physician. But speak to your doctor immediately. Do not wait for your next visit. Side Effects Of Cholesetrol Lowering Drugs include: Constipation. Nausea. Loss of appetite. Pain in the upper right part of the stomach. Fever. Flu-like symptoms. Hoarseness. Extreme tiredness. Lack of energy. Rash, hives or itching. Muscle pain, tenderness, or weakness. Yellowing of the skin or eyes. Unusual bleeding or bruising. Difficulty breathing or swallowing. Swelling of the face, throat, tongue, lips, eyes, hands, feet, ankles or lower legs. Lowering Cholesterol Medication Should Not Be Taken In Isolation. In addition to taking a cholesterol-lowering medication, making certain changes in your daily lifestyle can also lower your cholesterol blood levels. Eating a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol with little to no grains and sugars and exercising for 30 minutes on most, if not all days, will make a big difference. As will losing weight if you are overweight. Eliminating sugar and grains will inevitably cause beneficial side effects, such as normalizing your weight, increasing your energy and lowering your blood pressure and triglycerides. Lifestyle changes will work in the majority of cases of high cholesterol so why not try those first and give yourself the chance to avoid the cholesterol medicine side effects. Your physician will be able to advise you on this. That's it! Thank you. Please subscribe, comment and like this video if it was helpful! See you soon!

🌾 WARNING: The Real TRUTH About Red Yeast Rice, Statin Drugs and Lowering Your Cholesterol
 
09:44
Discover the REAL cause of high cholesterol and a simple formula my parent’s have used since 1999 to lower their cholesterol naturally: 💗 http://drsam.co/yt/StopStatins You can also watch this video on my channel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TYFY4Vl19Fo Refferences: 1. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23866314 2. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/9989685 3. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_yeast_rice 4. https://nccih.nih.gov/health/redyeastrice 5. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2651913/ 6. http://www.webmd.com/cholesterol-management/side-effects-of-statin-drugs ======================================= 🌾 CONSUMER WARNING: The Real TRUTH About Red Yeast Rice, Statin Drugs and Lowering Your Cholesterol ======================================= Recently I’ve been getting a lot of emails about the safety of using Red Yeast Rice to naturally lower cholesterol levels. Does it work, is it safe, and does it have the same side-effects of statin “cholesterol lowering” drugs?... One reason for all the questions and concerns is because Consumer Reports came out with a list of the 15 Supplement Ingredients to Always Avoid and Red Yeast Rice was one of the 15 ingredients on the list. And this is a very important topic because if the right form and amount of Red Yeast Rice is used, it’s an amazingly effective and safe ingredient. The Consumer Reports feedback about Red Yeast Rice… Unfortunately, the information is vague, wrong and inaccurate. They stated risks as: “Kidney and muscle problems, liver problems, hair loss; can magnify effect of cholesterol-lowering statin drugs, increasing the risk of side effects” However, what they HAVE done is inaccurately listed “statin” drug side-effects!… Statin Drugs Are The REAL Problem One of the most prescribed drugs in the world for almost 2 decades, are cholesterol lowering statin drugs. Doctors used to (and still do) say how these drugs are “so amazing and healthy” for you. And the minute anyone had even slightly elevated cholesterol levels, doctors were quick to prescribe these powerful (and harmful) drugs. However, in the past few years the truth has come out… The fact that statin drugs are very toxic and have numerous side-effects — such as memory loss, muscle pain, liver damage, diabetes, high blood pressure, impotence and more. Red Yeast Rice & Statins Red Yeast Rice (a regular diet staple in Asia) naturally contains low levels of monacolin K, which is chemically similar to the active ingredient in the cholesterol-lowering statin drug Lovastatin. And because of this, Consumer Reports automatically and incorrectly ASSUMES that Red Yeast Rice is the “same” as statin drugs and thus, will have the same negative side-effects of statin drugs. Not only is this wrong, but it’s illegal in the US because… FDA Won’t Allow This In 2008, the FDA determined that red yeast rice products that contain more than trace amounts of monacolin K are considered as an “unapproved new drug” and cannot be sold legally as dietary supplements. And this was done primarily because the pharmaceutical companies didn’t want a natural ingredient to compete with their harmful drugs. Red yeast rice can’t cause any statin side-effects, if it doesn’t contain any “statin” in it. However, Red yeast rice still has numerous health and cholesterol-lowering benefits that is NOT related to monacolin K or lovastatin, and without any negative side-effects.2,5 So Consumer Reports was all wrong about Red Yeast Rice’s negative side-effects. Problem 1: Citrinin Some red yeast rice products contain a contaminant called citrinin, which can cause kidney failure in high dosages.4 So when purchasing any product containing Red Yeast Rice, make sure the citrinin is removed. Problem 2: Don’t Use It By Itself You never want to use Red Yeast Rice by itself because you’d have to use a very high dosage of it for it to work and be effective. The best products use red yeast rice, in conjunction with other key ingredients, at specific dosages to help create healthy cholesterol levels, HDL/LDL ratios and triglycerides. Other key ingredients you should look for when purchasing a cholesterol-lowering product, which also work in synergy with red yeast rice are: Policosanol Co-Q10 Pantesin® d-Pantethine Garlic Extract Artichoke Leaf Extract Guggulsterones Phytosterols Complex Cleanse & Strengthen Your Liver This is exactly the problem my parents had in 1998 and that’s why they now use an “all-in-one” remedy called CholesLo™. ========================================­ Thank you for watching.

10 Foods That You Should Eat Daily For Clean Arteries
 
10:50
10 Foods That You Should Eat Daily For Clean Arteries 1. Turmeric Turmeric is a popular spice used in Indian and Ayurvedic cooking. The primary polyphenol in turmeric called curcumin has long been known for its cardioprotective effects. Turmeric extract is thought to reduce LDL cholesterol and the buildup of plaque in the arteries. In a 2011 study published in the journal Molecular Nutrition & Food Research, researchers found that turmeric could reduce cholesterol and suppress early atherosclerotic lesions better than the cholesterol-lowering drug lovastatin. Also, a 2006 study on mice suggested that curcumin can help prevent artery damage associated with carotid artery blockage. 2. Garlic Garlic is also considered one of the better foods that unclog your arteries. Studies have found that garlic can help prevent heart disease, lower blood pressure, and slow down atherosclerosis. In a study published in the journal Atherosclerosis in 1999, researchers found that garlic could prevent plaque buildup in the arteries. 3. Ginger Ginger has incredible anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidativeeffects. Ginger contains heart-protective compounds likeshogaols and gingerols, which can effectively prevent plaque buildup and unclog arteries by reducing total cholesterol. According to a study published in the Journal of Nutrition in 2000, researchers found that ginger extract could reduce aortic atherosclerotic lesion areas, cholesterol and triglycerides in the blood, LDL-linked fat peroxides, and LDL aggregation. 4. Cayenne pepper Something spicy can also help unclog your arteries. The compound capsaicin found in cayenne pepper can help reduce LDL cholesterol in the blood. Cayenne pepper can also lower your risk of stroke and heart attack, and improve blood circulation. Also, highly-active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) with HIV protease inhibitor ritonavir is associated with accelerating atherosclerosis and pulmonary artery hypertension. A study published in 2009 found that capsaicin could help prevent pulmonary and vascular complications associated with HAART drugs. 5. Lemon Adding lemon juice in your morning water is a healthy habit and good for your heart. Lemon is known to reduce blood cholesterol levels, and it helps the arteries by preventing oxidative damage. Lemons are also a great source of the potent antioxidant vitamin C. High doses of vitamin C have been found to strengthen arteries, reduce total cholesterol, increase high-density lipoprotein (HDL), inhibit platelet aggregation, and reduce inflammation. 6. Cinnamon Cinnamon can help reduce many risk factors associated with atherosclerosis and heart disease. A 2003 study published in the journal Diabetes Care in 2003 found that either one gram, three grams, or six grams of cinnamon daily can lower glucose, triglycerides, LDL cholesterol, and total cholesterol in type 2 diabetics. The study observed 60 diabetics for a 40-day period. Researchers concluded that cinnamon can help reduce the risk factors of cardiovascular disease. 7. Ground flaxseed Flaxseed is another important food for heart health. Ground flaxseed can help unclog arteries with high fiber. It is also a good source of alpha-linolenic acide, an omega-3 acid that can lower inflammation and blood pressure. In turn, arteries will not become clogged. In a 1997 study published in the journal Atherosclerosis, 8. Fermented cabbage Kimchi is a popular probiotic Korean recipe that includes fermented cabbage and hot peppers that has been found to slow the atherosclerotic process. A 2007 study published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry found that an active compound in kimchi called 3-94-hydroxy-3,5-dimethoxyphenyl can help prevent the development of aortic atherosclerosis in high-cholesterol-fed rabbits. Fermented cabbage has also found to degrade toxic chemicals, including bisphenol A and the insecticide chlorpyrifos. 9. Sesame seed Sesame seeds can help unclog a blocked artery. Evidence shows that they can help prevent the progression of atherosclerosis. A three-month animal study published in the Journal of Medicinal Food in 2006 suggests that the fatty acid content in sesame oil could effectively inhibit atherosclerosis lesion formation, blood cholesterol, triglycerides, and LDL cholesterol levels in mice. 10. Pomegranate juice The high antioxidant content and punicic acid in pomegranate juice are thought to help decrease plaque formation, unclog arteries, and fight atherosclerosis. Pomegranate juice also contains important nutrients for heart health, such as magnesium and selenium. In a randomized, double-blind, parallel study published in the American Journal of Cardiology in 2009, researchers found that drinking 240 milliliters (ml) of pomegranate juice daily for up to 18 months slowed the progression of carotid artery disease for patients at risk of coronary health disease.

Livalo (pitavastatin) vs Crestor (rosuvastatin)?; How to decide: benefits, risks and price
 
04:36
Livalo (pitavastatin) is a newcomer to the statin market. It brings many advantages with improvements in LDL, HDL, muscle damage side effects, and even glucose/HgA1c values. So why have I not given it? My treatment priority is inflammation, the immediate cause of heart attack and stroke. With statins, my priority has not been LDL and DM treatment. Livalo has no known impact on inflammation. Ford Brewer is a physician that started as an Emergency Doctor. After seeing too many patients coming in dead from early heart attacks, he went to Johns Hopkins to learn Preventive Medicine. He went on the run the post-graduate training program (residency) in Preventive Medicine at Hopkins.

what  is Statins?
 
06:39
Statins. Presentation. Statins, otherwise called HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors, are doctor prescribed drugs that assistance enhance cholesterol levels. Statins obstruct a chemical in your body that makes cholesterol. This activity diminishes your aggregate cholesterol level, including your low-thickness lipoprotein (LDL) or "terrible" cholesterol level. It additionally builds your level of high-thickness lipoprotein (HDL), which is viewed as "great" cholesterol. These impacts can lessen your danger of heart assault or stroke. The main statin, called lovastatin, was affirmed in the United States in 1987. From that point forward, six different statins have been created and endorsed. These medications all come in either a tablet or case that you take by mouth. Notwithstanding the 7 statin-just medications, there are 3 sedates that incorporate a statin in blend with another medication. STATIN LIST. Rundown of statin solutions. The accompanying tables list statins that are at present accessible in the United States. The lion's share of these medications are accessible in bland adaptations. Non specific medications are commonly more affordable than mark name drugs. They're additionally more prone to be secured by medical coverage designs. Every one of the seven statins come in consistent discharge shapes. This implies the medication is discharged into your circulation system at the same time. Two of the statins additionally come in expanded discharge frames, which are discharged into your circulation system all the more gradually. Contemplations for choosing a statin. Not all statins are made equivalent. Certain statins are more intense, which means they diminish your LDL and aggregate cholesterol levels more than different statins. A few statins have been appeared to diminish the danger of heart assault and stroke in individuals who have never had these occasions. This utilization is called essential counteractive action. With auxiliary counteractive action, the medications are utilized to keep the repeat or heart assault or stroke. Specialists normally just suggest statin blend items when you require double treatment. For instance, if your cholesterol levels don't react as they ought to treatment with only a statin, your specialist may have you take a medication that consolidates a statin with ezetimibe. Your specialist will pick a suitable statin in light of elements, for example, your age. other wellbeing conditions you have. how much cholesterol-bringing down impact you require. how well you endure a statin. different medications that you take. Age. It's uncommon, however a few kids have a hereditary condition that causes their cholesterol levels to be significantly expanded. In the event that your kid needs to take a statin to bring down their cholesterol level, their specialist may suggest one of the accompanying: *atorvastatin, for use in youngsters matured 10 to 17 years. *fluvastatin, for use in youngsters matured 10 to 16 years. *lovastatin, for use in youngsters matured 10 to 17 years. *pravastatin, for use in youngsters matured 8 to 18 years. *rosuvastatin, for use in kids matured 7 to 17 years. *simvastatin, for use in kids matured 10 to 17 years. Existing wellbeing conditions: Certain wellbeing conditions or dangers for conditions can factor into your specialist's proposal. Your specialist may propose a high-strength statin treatment, which works all the more forcefully to bring down your cholesterol level, on the off chance that you: *have dynamic coronary illness. *have high LDL levels (190 mg/dL or more noteworthy). *are between the ages of 40 and 75 years, with diabetes and a LDL level between 70 mg/dL and 189 mg/dL. *are between the ages of 40 and 75 years, with a LDL level between 70 mg/dL and 189 mg/dL and a high danger of creating coronary illness. Atorvastatin and rosuvastatin are ordinarily utilized for high-strength statin treatment. On the off chance that you can't endure a high-strength statin treatment or on the off chance that you have diabetes and a lower danger of creating coronary illness, your specialist may suggest a direct power statin treatment. This may include: *simvastatin. *pravastatin. *lovastatin. *fluvastatin. *pitavastatin. *atorvastatin. All Photos Licensed Under CC Source : www.pexels.com www.pixabay.com www.commons.wikimedia.org

10 Foods That You Should Eat Daily For Clean Arteries
 
08:11
10 Foods That You Should Eat Daily For Clean Arteries 1. Turmeric Turmeric is a popular spice used in Indian and Ayurvedic cooking. The primary polyphenol in turmeric called curcumin has long been known for its cardioprotective effects. Turmeric extract is thought to reduce LDL cholesterol and the buildup of plaque in the arteries. In a 2011 study published in the journal Molecular Nutrition & Food Research, researchers found that turmeric could reduce cholesterol and suppress early atherosclerotic lesions better than the cholesterol-lowering drug lovastatin. Also, a 2006 study on mice suggested that curcumin can help prevent artery damage associated with carotid artery blockage. 2. Garlic Garlic is also considered one of the better foods that unclog your arteries. Studies have found that garlic can help prevent heart disease, lower blood pressure, and slow down atherosclerosis. In a study published in the journal Atherosclerosis in 1999, researchers found that garlic could prevent plaque buildup in the arteries. 3. Ginger Ginger has incredible anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidativeeffects. Ginger contains heart-protective compounds likeshogaols and gingerols, which can effectively prevent plaque buildup and unclog arteries by reducing total cholesterol. According to a study published in the Journal of Nutrition in 2000, researchers found that ginger extract could reduce aortic atherosclerotic lesion areas, cholesterol and triglycerides in the blood, LDL-linked fat peroxides, and LDL aggregation. 4. Cayenne pepper Something spicy can also help unclog your arteries. The compound capsaicin found in cayenne pepper can help reduce LDL cholesterol in the blood. Cayenne pepper can also lower your risk of stroke and heart attack, and improve blood circulation. Also, highly-active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) with HIV protease inhibitor ritonavir is associated with accelerating atherosclerosis and pulmonary artery hypertension. A study published in 2009 found that capsaicin could help prevent pulmonary and vascular complications associated with HAART drugs. 5. Lemon Adding lemon juice in your morning water is a healthy habit and good for your heart. Lemon is known to reduce blood cholesterol levels, and it helps the arteries by preventing oxidative damage. Lemons are also a great source of the potent antioxidant vitamin C. High doses of vitamin C have been found to strengthen arteries, reduce total cholesterol, increase high-density lipoprotein (HDL), inhibit platelet aggregation, and reduce inflammation. 6. Cinnamon Cinnamon can help reduce many risk factors associated with atherosclerosis and heart disease. A 2003 study published in the journal Diabetes Care in 2003 found that either one gram, three grams, or six grams of cinnamon daily can lower glucose, triglycerides, LDL cholesterol, and total cholesterol in type 2 diabetics. The study observed 60 diabetics for a 40-day period. Researchers concluded that cinnamon can help reduce the risk factors of cardiovascular disease. 7. Ground flaxseed Flaxseed is another important food for heart health. Ground flaxseed can help unclog arteries with high fiber. It is also a good source of alpha-linolenic acide, an omega-3 acid that can lower inflammation and blood pressure. In turn, arteries will not become clogged. In a 1997 study published in the journal Atherosclerosis, researchers found that flaxseed lowered the development of aortic atherosclerosis by 46% in rabbits. 8. Fermented cabbage Kimchi is a popular probiotic Korean recipe that includes fermented cabbage and hot peppers that has been found to slow the atherosclerotic process. A 2007 study published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry found that an active compound in kimchi called 3-94-hydroxy-3,5-dimethoxyphenyl can help prevent the development of aortic atherosclerosis in high-cholesterol-fed rabbits. 9. Sesame seed Sesame seeds can help unclog a blocked artery. Evidence shows that they can help prevent the progression of atherosclerosis. A three-month animal study published in the Journal of Medicinal Food in 2006 suggests that the fatty acid content in sesame oil could effectively inhibit atherosclerosis lesion formation, blood cholesterol, triglycerides, and LDL cholesterol levels in mice. 10.

Discovery and development of the statins. In: Gaw A, Packard CJ, Shepherd J. Statins: The HMG CoA reductase inhibitors in perspective. CRC Press, 1999; pp. 35-47. https://cen.acs.org/articles/87/i23/Story-Statins.html http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Homocysteine ======================================= 💓 Natural Alternatives To Statin Cholesterol Lowering Drugs ======================================= One of the best selling and most profitable drugs for over 2 decades are cholesterol lowering, “statin drugs”. The first “commercially” available, FDA approved statin was introduced over 30 years ago (lovastatin 1997) and this was formulated based on a natural substance, that I’ll reveal to you in a minute. The most popular ones that you’ve probably heard of are Lipitor (Atorvastatin), Crestor (Rosuvastatin) and Zocor (Simvastatin). Muscle pain AND damage. Just keep in mind that your body, including your HEART is functional ONLY because of your muscles. Liver Damage 80% of your cholesterol is made within the liver, NOT from the foods you eat. These drugs go inside your liver, prevent the formation of cholesterol and in the process, DAMAGE your liver. Elevated Blood Sugar and Type 2 Diabetes One of the worst things for again and every problem in your body is high blood sugar and insulin levels. Neurological Problems Sure, it causes depression, anxiety, panic attacks, worry, etc., etc. I’m not even going to get into arthritis, elevated blood pressure and probably the WORST problem of all - hormonal imbalances. Natural Alternatives So let’s get right to it, I’ll make this quick. First, your goal is NOT to have “low” cholesterol, you want HEALTHY cholesterol levels. Additionally and more importantly, you ALSO want optimal ratios of your HDL (“good” cholesterol/lipoprotein) and LDL (“bad” cholesterol/lipoprotein). Well, that’s from Red Yeast Rice, which is a common food in Asia. The natural form of this extract, in small doses, has all the positive “cholesterol lowering” benefits, but without the negatives of the synthetic drugs. Other Cholesterol Optimizing Herbs Other clinically proven, natural herbal extracts that promote health cholesterol levels and balanced lipid levels, which are: Artichoke Leaf Extract Phytosterols Complex Garlic Policosanol Instead of taking thyroid drugs, I suggest taking Guggulsterones (10% Pure Extract; E and Z) Iodine (Kelp Extract) Cleanse Your Liver As stated earlier, most people don’t know that 80% of your cholesterol is created within your body, by your liver… and NOT from the foods you eat. This is why many times, the change in your diet doesn’t make dramatic improvements in cholesterol levels. Thus, the stronger your liver, the easier your body will eliminate and detox “excess cholesterol” from your blood. The irony is that ALL drugs, especially statins, cause liver damage and thus, will eventually increase your cholesterol levels. But, since this is almost impossible for most people, I suggest you take Milk Thistle (80% Extract) NAC (N-Acetyl L-Cysteine) - which also boost your immune system. R+ Alpha Lipoic Acid (r+ ALA) - which also helps lower your blood sugar. Reduce Homocysteine Levels All doctors are so focused on improving cholesterol to help you avoid heart disease, a heart attack or stroke -- that they forget (or don’t KNOW!) about something super important and that’s your Homocysteine Levels. In fact, researchers now believe that testing homocysteine levels is over 47% more accurate at predicting heart disease, than checking cholesterol. The cool part is that you can easily and quickly improve Homocysteine levels by simply taking a specific ratio of certain B-Vitamins Vitamin B6 (as pyridoxine HCL) Vitamin B12 (as methylcobalamin) Folate (as 5-Methyl-tetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF)) Vitamin B5 [Pantesin® d-Pantethine (special form of B5)] Reduce Inflammation Finally, one of the leading causes of many illnesses and diseases is inflammation. And there are a few ingredients that’ll help reduce it, 3 of my favorites are: Turmeric (95% curcuminoids Extract) Ginger (10% extract) Mixed Vit. E - Tocotrienols (90% Delta &10% Gamma Tocotrienols) ========================================­ Thank you for watching. Please feel free to comment, like or share with your friends.

My video on once-a-month injection of Repatha, a PCSK9 inhibitor that gets your LDL to goal! I consider PCKS9 Inhibitor class highly important, a revolution in cardiology and treatment of LDL Cholesterol with the potential to eliminate heart attacks and strokes! Please share. In the US, Crestor is the fourth top drug by sales at $5,502,148,010 annually (according to IMS National Prescription Audit, IMS Health) and Lipitor was at Lipitor $7.2 billion. Cholesterol-lowering Statin drugs have been shown to be life-saving in numerous studies in high-risk patients (those with multiple risk factors such as age, diabetes, family history, smoking, hypertension, and hyperlipidemia...) as well as in primary prevention. In patients who have had heart attacks or stroke or are diabetic, it is a must to have LDL (bad cholesterol) lowered to under 70, although I try for even lower- below 50! Doctors must be very cautious when using these drugs and watch out for potential harmful effects. These include muscle damage and liver injury etc. Sometimes, the symptoms are obvious with severe pain. But often there is mild aches confused with arthritic pain and fatigue. I check CPK, LFTs and here you see mild elevation in CK-MB and Myoglobin (see typically in Statin muscle injury.) Some doctors check blood levels only once a year. I do it at least three times a year and actively look for Statin injury. If you are a patient on Statin (Lipitor, Crestor, Mevacor, Simvastatin, etc...) ask for your levels to be checked. There are now other options which are much more effective and less harmful if you qualify. Reflecting shorter-term results in a prior trial, the phase 3 Goal Achievement After Utilizing an Anti-PCSK9 Antibody in Statin Intolerant Subjects-3 (GAUSS-3) trial "met its co–primary end points," Amgen said in a statement aimed at the investment community[1]. It means that one of its highest-profile products, ‪#‎evolocumab‬ (‪#‎Repatha‬), already on the market, cut mean LDL-C levels significantly further than treatment with ezetimibe over 24 weeks in patients who had been intolerant of statin therapy due to "muscle-related side effects," which usually means pain or spasms. "There were no new safety findings," the company said. As is customary in such announcements, relative outcomes implying a significant difference were provided without specific numbers. GAUSS-3, randomized and with double-blinding, is reported to have enrolled 519 patients. Evolocumab, a human monoclonal antibody for proprotein convertase subtilisin-kexin type 9 (PCSK9), lowers LDL-C via an entirely different mechanism compared with statins or ezetimibe. The approvals of evolocumab and a competing PCSK9 inhibitor alirocumab (‪#‎Praluent‬, ‪#‎Sanofi‬/Regeneron) indicated them for LDL-C lowering in conjunction with maximally tolerated statins. Approval in the statin-intolerant population tested in GAUSS-2 and GAUSS-3 would expand the indication to a modestly broader population. Amgen is sponsoring a large cardiovascular-outcomes trial it hopes will settle the big PCSK9-inhibitor question in the medical community, whether the LDL-C-lowering shown by these drugs—evolocumab in this case—can translate to fewer CV events. Top-line results from such a trial, called FOURIER, which randomized about 27,500 patients with clinical cardiovascular disease, "are anticipated in the second half of 2016," according to the company.

Sacred Truth Ep. 47: Statins - Don't Believe All You're Told
 
08:00
To learn more: http://lesliekenton.com/health/video/sacred-truth-ep-47-statins-dont-believe-all-youre-told/ I continue to be horrified by guidelines issued by the American Heart Association and American College of Cardiology, which speak of giving statin drugs to healthy people. Meanwhile, draft recommendations from the US Preventive Task Force have issued new directives claiming that healthy people should be taking statin drugs as a “preventative against possible future illness.” Their main plan is to see one third of all adults in the United States are put on statin drugs—44% of all men and 22% of all women—even if none of these people have ever had a previous heart attack or stroke. Statins are the most widely prescribed drugs on the market. One in four Americans over 45 are already on statins, despite more than 900 studies reporting dangerous side effects from these drugs. These range from heightened risks of cancer and diabetes to sexual problems, neuropathy, and liver dysfunction, as well as immune system suppression, and even a higher risk of cataracts. In Britain too, statins are the most commonly prescribed drugs, costing the NMS £450 million a year. Now 40% of adults (175 million people) are being advised to take the drug. If the new directives are put into practice by the UK medical establishment—as they are likely to be—the numbers of men and women being prescribed statins could well become legion. What are statins anyway? Statins are a group of drugs prescribed to lower cholesterol levels by inhibiting the enzyme HMG-CoA reductase, which plays a central role in the production of cholesterol in the liver. Statins have many different names, such as Lipitor, Lescol, Mevacor, Altocor, and Zocor. These drugs are prescribed on the assumption that they will lower the risks of cardiovascular events and strokes. The new directives assert that, if given to healthy people, they could help protect the population from heart attacks and strokes at some time in the future. Happily, a growing number of cardiologists are strongly opposed to the new directives. What’s the problem with statins? Plenty: • They deplete your body of CoQ10, which is essential for every cell in your body, and ubiquinol. Both CoQ10 and ubiquinol keep the so-called bad cholesterol from doing harm to your body. However, very few mainstream doctors are ever aware of these dangers. One exception is cardiologist Steven Sinatra, founder of the New England Heart Center. Sinatra recommends that anyone taking statins should take between 100 and 200 mg of CoQ10 or ubiquinol each day as protection. • Statins lower Vitamin K2 in the body. This puts you at risk of deficiency of this vitamin, which contributes to chronic diseases, such as osteoporosis, cancer, and brain disease. • Long-term statin use—10 years or so—has been shown to increase your risk of diabetes, neurogenerative diseases, musculoskeletal problems, and even cataracts. Dr. Eric Topol, highly respected cardiologist and Professor of Genomics at Scripps Research Institute in California, wrote an excellent article for The New York Times Opinion Page in which he warns: “We’re overdosing on cholesterol-lowering statins.” Topol is especially concerned about the sharp increase in the prevalence of Type 2 Diabetes that is occurring in people using them. He writes: “Statins have been available since the 1980s but their risk of inducing diabetes did not surface for nearly 20 years. When all the data available from multiple studies was pooled in 2010 for more than 91,000 patients randomly assigned to be treated with a statin or a sugar pill (placebo), the risk of developing diabetes with any statin was one in every 255 patients treated. But this figure is misleading since it includes weaker statins like Pravachol and Mevacor—which were introduced earlier and do not carry any clear-cut risk. It is only with the more potent statins—Zocor (now known as simvastatin), Lipitor (atorvastatin), and Crestor (rosuvastatin)—particularly at higher doses—that the risk of diabetes shows up. The cause and effect was unequivocal because the multiple large trials of the more potent statins had a consistent excess of diabetes.” Meanwhile, a recent study by Jean A. McDougall and her colleagues in the Journal of Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention reveals that long-term use of statins increases the risk of both lobular and ductal breast cancer in women between 55 and 74.

Lipid Lowering Agents
 
13:03
Understand the antihyperlipidemic agents once and all! In this quick board review lecture I'm gonna cover the anti-hyperlipidemic agents and that includes the following groups. The HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors, the fibrates, niacin, bile acid sequestrants and cholesterol absorption inhibitors. Let's get started. The HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors are a very important group of drugs. Five out of five you've got to know these drugs for your exams. The more common name for these drugs is the statins. However, the mechanism of action is actually found in the first name. They are reversible and competitive inhibitors of HMG-CoA reductase. That is a very important rate-limiting enzyme in the pathway that produces cholesterol in our liver de novo. On the right I have a picture to explain this but I'm gonna break it down and walk through the steps. Starting with acetyl-CoA. Acetyl-CoA is an important molecule in biologic reactions and it plays an important part in the synthesis of cholesterol. Acetyl-CoA is basically an acetyl group that is linked to coenzyme A. Let me just shorten coenzyme A to just CoA. In that first step on our list below you can see that if we combined two acetyl-CoAs together through the enzyme thiolase we get a molecule called acetoacetyl-CoA. If we then take that molecule and add another acetyl-CoA through the enzyme HMG-CoA synthase we have HMG-CoA, and this is where the statins work. The statins block the next step. What's supposed to happen is that this HMG-CoA is supposed to be reduced to mevalonic acid. Again, the statins block this from happening and therefore ultimately inhibit or decrease the production of cholesterol de novo in the liver. Major side effects for the statins include hepatic toxicity, however, while this can be severe, only about one to two people per 10,000 patient years have this problem. What's more common by far is myositis or myalgias. It is very common that your patients could complain of muscle aches while on this medication. And in severe cases, they could have Rhabdomyolysis from it. As for examples for the statins, we have these four here. Rosuvastatin, atorvastatin, simvastatin and lovastatin and I organized this list in this way on purpose. On the right side of this little list are the equivalencies. Rosuvastatin is the strongest of these four statins with an equivalency of 1.0. Lovastatin is the weakest of these statins with an equivalency of eight. In other words you would need theoretically and it doesn't work out exactly but you would need about eight milligrams of lovastatin to equal the effect that you get with one milligram of rosuvastatin. And finally if you really want to impress your preceptors look up the ASTEROID Trial which was done in 2006. It showed that patients who are treated with 40 milligrams of rosuvastatin actually had a regression of their atherosclerotic plaques at a two-year follow-up. Moving on, now the fibrates. These drugs are pretty easy to pick out in a group because they end in -fibrate or -fibrozil. These drugs are often given in combination with the statins because there's not a lot of good evidence to support using them alone. As for their mechanism of action, they act by stimulating or activating the peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor subtype alpha, or abbreviated PPAR alpha. Don't confuse this with PPAR gamma. The PPAR gamma is stimulated by the related class of drugs, the thiazolidinediones which are used for diabetes. Naturally in the body, these PPAR alpha receptors are found on the cell nucleus. They are used in the regulation of carbohydrates and fatty acids. When we stimulate these receptors with the fibrates we change that metabolism and this works by having the drug bind the receptor which makes the receptors move into the nucleus. Once in the nucleus, the PPAR alpha binds another receptor called the retinoid X receptor and that complex binds DNA on sequences that are called peroxisome proliferator hormone response elements. These response elements are responsible for the expression of proteins that are involved in the metabolism of fatty acids and triacylglycerides. For example, you would see an increase in the expression of lipoprotein lipase. This would increase the metabolism of triacylglycerides. Also it would increase the expression of apolipoprotein A1 and apolipoprotein A2. Those are lipoproteins that are important in the structure of an HDL particle. The side effects for the fibrates include GI upset, this is really common. You very well could see your patient complain of a stomach ache on the fibrates.

Statins permanently damage heart muscle, Peter Langsjoen MD

Hi, this is Larry Hobbs @ FatNews.com. http://fatnews.com/ https://twitter.com/fatnews Statin-induced impairment in heart muscle function appears to be permanent “Statin-induced impairment in heart muscle function appears to be permanent, and even though patients may clinically benefit from discontinuation of the statin along with supplemental CoQ10, we believe that many years of statin drug therapy result in the gradual accumulation of mitochondrial DNA damage,” according to a 2015 review paper by Prof. Harumi Okuyama from Nagoya City University in Nagoya, Japan, Peter H. Langsjoen MD, a cardiologist from Texas, and others who reviewed more than 20 statin drug studies done after 2004. “A prolonged decrease in mitochondrial CoQ10 would diminish the ability to protect mitochondrial DNA from free radical damage.” Prof. Harumi Okuyama: ‘I cannot find any evidence to support people taking statins and patients who are on them should stop’ “We have collected a wealth of information on cholesterol and statins from many published papers and find overwhelming evidence that these drugs accelerate hardening of the arteries and can cause, or worsen, heart failure. “I cannot find any evidence to support people taking statins and patients who are on them should stop,” Prof. Harumi Okuyama from Nagoya City University in Nagoya, Japan, lead author of the 2015 review paper of statin trials, was quoted as saying in the UK newspaper The Daily Express.

Red Yeast Rice The Truth Behind This Controversial Cholesterol Lowering Supplement
 
15:38
Red Yeast Rice The Truth Behind This Controversial Cholesterol-Lowering Supplement. The most well-known of red yeast rice benefits is by far its potential to lower cholesterol. Many people with high cholesterol turn to red yeast rice supplements to avoid the dangers of statins. These cholesterol-lowering drugs known as statins have been linked with some really concerning side effects, including memory loss, liver damage, muscle pain, high blood sugar, and even development of type 2 diabetes. (1) Scientific studies have demonstrated that supplementing with red yeast rice can lower overall as well as LDL cholesterol, aka “bad cholesterol.” (2) According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, benefits of red yeast rice also include improvements in circulation and digestion. Red yeast rice supplements are extremely popular so let’s take a look at the possible benefits as well as the controversy surrounding this natural over-the-counter remedy. What Is Red Yeast Rice?. So what is red yeast rice? Sometimes called RYR for short, red yeast rice is created by fermenting a type of yeast called Monascus purpureus with rice. Once the rice is combined with the fermenting yeast, the resulting red yeast rice is bright reddish purple in color. Red yeast rice extract (RYRE) is used to make a red yeast rice supplement. So what makes RYR possibly beneficial to health concerns like high cholesterol? The interesting thing is that it has naturally occurring chemical called monacolins, which block the production of cholesterol. One of these monacolins sometimes found in RYR supplements, called monacolin K, has been controversial because this chemical is said to be an active statin-like compound with the same chemical makeup as popularly prescribed statins like lovastatin and mevinolin. (3) This is a concern because we know the potential dangers of statins include muscle pain and weakness, neuropathy, heart failure, dizziness, cognitive impairment, cancer, pancreatic rot and depression. Experts aren’t clear on whether RYR successfully lowers cholesterol because it contains monacolins or because of its naturally occurring plant compounds like phytosterols and isoflavones as well as its unsaturated fatty acid content. Some researchers believe that since the monacolin in red yeast rice is less than what is found in prescription statins these other substances must also play a role in red yeast rice’s ability to decrease cholesterol. (4) In 1998, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) began to regulate manufactures of RYR supplements and said that supplements containing monacolin K are considered drugs rather than dietary supplements. Since that time, the FDA has taken legal action against companies making red yeast rice supplements with greater than trace amounts of monacolin K. According to the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine, “Despite the FDA actions, some red yeast rice products currently on the market in the United States may contain monacolin K. (Some products tested as recently as 2011 have been found to contain it in substantial amounts.) Other products may contain little or none of this component.” (5) I’ll talk more about choosing the best RYR supplements, but first, let’s talk about the possible health benefits. 5 Health Benefits of Red Yeast Rice. 1. Help for High Cholesterol. Red yeast rice supplements are most often taken to naturally lower hyperlipidemia or high cholesterol. The red yeast (Monascus purpureus) used to make RYR has been shown to stop the action of an enzyme in the human body that helps form cholesterol. There have been a lot of studies showing the positive effects of red yeast rice extract on cholesterol. Another study published in the European Journal of Cardiovascular Prevention and Rehabilitation evaluated the effects of red yeast rice (also called Went rice) on 79 patients with high cholesterol between 23 and 65 years of age. These patients took either 600 milligrams of red yeast rice or a placebo two times per day for a total of eight weeks. The study results revealed that the subjects who took the RYR showed “significantly greater reduction” in LDL (“bad”) cholesterol levels as well as total cholesterol.

Cholesterol Lowering Treatment | Natural Health
 
06:14
Cholesterol Lowering Treatment | Natural Health The treatment for lowering LDL (bad) cholesterol, does not always consist of taking medicines. Usually the treatment starts with changes to a healthy style, with balanced diet and practice of physical activity and smoking cessation, alcohol and stress. But if all these changes are not enough, the cardiologist may prescribe cholesterol-lowering medicines. Total cholesterol should not exceed 200mg / dl and those who have high cholesterol should have a blood test at least once a year, but anyone who has never had problems with cholesterol or high cholesterol in the family should take the test at least every 5 years. However, when parents or grandparents have high cholesterol it is important to take the test every 3 years from the age of 20 even if you have never had high cholesterol.

Statins contributing to heart failure epidemic; Peter Langsjoen MD

Is Red Yeast Rice Extract OK To Lower Cholesterol On The Candida Diet?
 
03:33
Can you take Red Yeast Rice Extract to lower cholesterol while you have Candida, a subscriber wants to know. Here's my take on it... Hi there, Eric Bakker, naturopath from New Zealand. I've got an interesting question here from a subscriber. "Is red yeast rice extract okay to lower cholesterol on Candida Diet?" Well why would you want to lower cholesterol? I'm not sure if I've done any videos on cholesterol management but this whole cholesterol management, lower management thing is a huge myth. Most people have got no idea or understanding of cholesterol and its effects on the body. We're told that LDL or the bad cholesterol damages our health, and we're told that the high density lipoprotein, or the HDL is actually beneficial for health. But they're only giving you a very tiny little piece of the information. Heart disease occurs by way of inflammation and inflammatory mechanisms go far beyond just HDL and LDL ratios. So red yeast rice extract is basically a kind of a fungus, it's a yeast called monascus, and this basically is grown on rice. It's quite popular and has been used, I think like 300 before Christ they discovered this. So it's actually a type of a statin drug. So back in the '70s the Americans, I think Lovastatin came from a fungus called aspergillus. So aspergillus is a particular type of fungus that can also affect our bodies really bad if it grows in the lungs. But they isolated this particular drug, which they call now a drug, a statin drug, called Lovastatin back in the '70s, and what they found out that Lovastatin is very similar to the monostatin or the one from the monascus yeast. Did you get all that? I hope you did. So yeast, fungus can actually be quite beneficial for the body too because as you can see fungus have different effects on the body. In this case the monascus can block the effects of HMG-CoA reductase which is an enzyme which helps to produce the LDL. But you don't really need to lower LDL, it's a pretty dumb thing to do. You need to get your bowel functioning better. So by improving the bowel motions, you're going to have a much better ability for the body to bind to cholesterol in the gut and excrete it. You don't need to lower it through taking drugs, it's a stupid thing to do. So there are many, many different videos you can watch now on the internet about the cholesterol myth, or what we call the Big Fat Lie. It's a load of crap that you need to lower cholesterol in order to prolong life. You need to keep cholesterol balanced and in good amounts when you get older, 'cause cholesterol is a formation for four major hormonal pathways in the body, including production of testosterone, progesterone, estrogen, cortisol, [inaudible 00:02:39]. All these hormones rely on a good supply of cholesterol. So if you're mess around with cholesterol, you could also potentially mess around with hormones. There's a book called "The Thief of Memory," written by a lady who's husband was an astronaut, whose brain basically went coo coo on him after taking these statin drugs. Statin drugs make billions of dollars a year for companies and this Big Fat Lie one day will come out. Hopefully this video is up long enough for people to say, "See that guy was right. These drugs are a joke." So if you're worried about heart disease, keep your blood pressure down, your weight down, and keep your bowel function working. One of my teachers used to say, "People need to keep their mouths shut and their bowels open 'cause it's going to prolong their lives." Hope you got something out of this video.

Cholesterol Reducing Foods

More info @: http://ad.trwv.net/t.pl/89071/377594 What is cholesterol? Cholesterol is made by the liver, but also found in fatty foods. There are two types of cholesterol: HDL or "good" cholesterol (high-density lipoproteins) and LDL or "bad" cholesterol (low-density lipoproteins (or LDL). If LDL cholesterol is high it gets deposited on the walls of your arteries, forming a plaque that clogs your blood vessels and stops your blood flowing properly. Eventually the plaque hardens your arteries, a condition called atherosclerosis. HDL cholesterol removes LDL cholesterol from the arteries and the body, via the liver. Statin drug side effects Common statin side effects include: • Headaches • Difficulty sleeping • Skin flushes • Muscle pain, aches, tenderness, or weakness (myalgia) • Drowsiness • Dizziness • Nausea or vomiting • Stomach cramps or pain • Bloating or gas • Diarrhoea • Constipation • Rashes Reduce your cholesterol intake You can immediately improve your diet and cut down on foods that are high in cholesterol, saturated fat, and trans fats. Use olive oil instead of butter or blocks of margarine. Yoghurt instead of cream. Steam or grill instead of frying. Use low fat milk and cheeses. Try fish and tofu instead of red meat. Avoid fried and fatty foods like chips, bacon, burgers and commercial cakes and biscuits made of hydrogenated fats. Avoid crisps and nuts if you're snacking and replace them with dried fruit or pretzels. Eat more fruit and vegetables, especially raw. What is red rice yeast? Red rice yeast (Monascus purpureus) is a food supplement made of a red coloured yeast grown on rice, that is used extensively in Chinese cooking to make such classics as Peking Duck and Char Siu. That is where they get their characteristic red colour from. Red rice yeast contains many natural compounds including a group of fourteen monacolins. One of them, monacolin K, is what the statin drug lovastatin is made from. How much should I take? An overview of multiple studies by Katan et al, 2003, showed that doses above 2000 mg total per day are unnecessary. They also showed that plant sterols and stanols work best when combined with an unsaturated fat diet. Try taking 400 mg capsules 3 times a day (a total of 1200 mg), in combination with an improved diet, to help your LDL levels return to normal without experiencing side effects. If they are very high you could take 5 capsules a day (5 x 400 mg = 2000 mg) for the first week or two, but then lower the amount again, especially if you have been intolerant to statins previously. Choosing the right red rice yeast It is possible to buy red rice yeast on its own. This is the cheapest way but there are some things to take into consideration. Red rice yeast capsules made in the USA does not contain monacolin K. This is because the FDA regulations require it to be removed to avoid people who are taking it with statin drugs receiving too high a level. So it is 'weaker' than red rice yeast produced in the European Union where this is not required. Cholesterol Reducing Foods: http://ad.trwv.net/t.pl/89071/377594

How To Clear Clogged Heart Arteries Naturally Without Surgery or Drugs
 
01:40
How To Clear Clogged Heart Arteries Naturally Without Surgery or Drugs, how to remove plaque from arteries fast http://angioclear.com/ - Bubbling potions concocted by the “mad scientists” to help lower cholesterol also slows down your body’s natural ability to lower cholesterol. Are you taking lovastatin? How about lipitor? Rosuvastatin? Crestor?111 The eyebrow raising questionable chemicals in statin drugs are cooked up to reduce your cholesterol by slowing down your body’s production of the enzyme HMG-CoA. HMG-CoA plays a role in making cholesterol in your body. However, and here comes the catch—HMG-CoA is the building block for coenzyme Q10, or CoQ10. CoQ10 is a substance found in all of your cells. CoQ10 gives you energy, maintains the health of your cells, and… helps to lower your cholesterol. Statin users have shown a decrease of roughly 50-54% in their CoQ10 levels. University of Maryland Medical Center came up with jaw-dropping health reports that showed a broad range of statin drugs that is stealing up to half of CoQ10 levels. Other studies on this were conducted at Johns Hopkins and Duke University, along with observations, and similar comments from the American Heart Association. Although there are cases where some people do need pharmaceutical drugs—maybe you are one of them—the rate of prescriptions being handed out so fast is extremely high. That’s alarming, to say the least. An Ounce of Prevention is Worth a Pound of Cure Benjamin Franklin hit the nail on the head when he said that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. A little precaution before a crisis occurs is preferable to a lot of fixing up afterwards, wouldn’t you agree? We’ve taught our kids this while they were growing up, but do we practice what we preach? Here in an “ounce of prevention” to help keep your engine in check 24/7—without having to babysit yourself all the time with special diets and ALWAYS having to exercise. mv https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5m9IAZKVJz0 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TfazvkNkCeo https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-qVNaU7X_uY mvend lw.. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YGm3j2mjx3g chw.. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YGm3j2mjx3g

Red yeast rice is also known as: red rice koji, akakoji, red fermented rice, red kojic rice or anka- does red rice yeast really work for lowering cholesterol, ldl and triglycerides? Red yeast rice is a substance extracted from rice that has been fermented with a special type of yeast called Monascus Purpureus. It has been found to significantly lower total and 'bad' LDL cholesterol, in addition to raising levels of 'good cholesterol' (HDL). One of the natural key ingredients in red yeast rice is called Monacolin K. Now this is identical to the active ingredient of the cholesterol-lowering statin drug Mevacor (lovaststin), but the difference is, unlike its pharma- counterpart, it doesn't come with a long list of harmful side effects. There are caveats when taking Red rice yeast products, i.e it should NOT be taken during pregnancy and for those taking prescribed statin drugs or those with existing liver disease, kidney disease, or allergies to fungus or yeast. If you are taking any medication, also check with your doctor just in case there are any contradictions. ======================================================================================= Want to see more videos like this: https://youtu.be/uFfCHfLcmaQ?

Statin drug side effects Common statin side effects include: • Headaches • Difficulty sleeping • Skin flushes • Muscle pain, aches, tenderness, or weakness (myalgia) • Drowsiness • Dizziness • Nausea or vomiting • Stomach cramps or pain • Bloating or gas • Diarrhoea • Constipation • Rashes Reduce your cholesterol intake You can immediately improve your diet and cut down on foods that are high in cholesterol, saturated fat, and trans fats. Use olive oil instead of butter or blocks of margarine. Yoghurt instead of cream. Steam or grill instead of frying. Use low fat milk and cheeses. Try fish and tofu instead of red meat. Avoid fried and fatty foods like chips, bacon, burgers and commercial cakes and biscuits made of hydrogenated fats. Avoid crisps and nuts if you're snacking and replace them with dried fruit or pretzels. Eat more fruit and vegetables, especially raw. What is red rice yeast? Red rice yeast (Monascus purpureus) is a food supplement made of a red coloured yeast grown on rice, that is used extensively in Chinese cooking to make such classics as Peking Duck and Char Siu. That is where they get their characteristic red colour from. Red rice yeast contains many natural compounds including a group of fourteen monacolins. One of them, monacolin K, is what the statin drug lovastatin is made from. How much should I take? An overview of multiple studies by Katan et al, 2003, showed that doses above 2000 mg total per day are unnecessary. They also showed that plant sterols and stanols work best when combined with an unsaturated fat diet. Try taking 400 mg capsules 3 times a day (a total of 1200 mg), in combination with an improved diet, to help your LDL levels return to normal without experiencing side effects. If they are very high you could take 5 capsules a day (5 x 400 mg = 2000 mg) for the first week or two, but then lower the amount again, especially if you have been intolerant to statins previously. Choosing the right red rice yeast It is possible to buy red rice yeast on its own. This is the cheapest way but there are some things to take into consideration. Red rice yeast capsules made in the USA does not contain monacolin K. This is because the FDA regulations require it to be removed to avoid people who are taking it with statin drugs receiving too high a level. So it is 'weaker' than red rice yeast produced in the European Union where this is not required. Soluble Fiber Supplements: http://ad.trwv.net/t.pl/89071/377594

Statin studies show NO benefit! Prof. Harumi Okuyama & Peter Langsjoen MD

Hi, this is Larry Hobbs @ FatNews.com. http://fatnews.com/ https://twitter.com/fatnews Statins provide no beneficial effect on coronary heart disease in trials since 2004-2005 “After 2004–2005 [when new penalties were put in place regarding clinical trials in the EU], all clinical trials, performed by scientists relatively free of conflict of interest with pharmaceutical industries, reported… no significant beneficial effects were observed [with the use of statins] for the prevention of CHD [coronary heart disease],” according to a 2015 review paper by Prof. Harumi Okuyama from Nagoya City University in Nagoya, Japan, Peter H. Langsjoen MD, a cardiologist from Texas, and others who reviewed more than 20 statin drug studies done after 2004. “Currently, the majority of scientists continue to claim that statins are effective in preventing CHD [coronary heart disease], but these claims are based on meta-analyses of reports, including those published before the EU regulation (mostly in 1990s) [which are unreliable].” Prof. Harumi Okuyama: ‘I cannot find any evidence to support people taking statins and patients who are on them should stop’ “We have collected a wealth of information on cholesterol and statins from many published papers and find overwhelming evidence that these drugs accelerate hardening of the arteries and can cause, or worsen, heart failure. “I cannot find any evidence to support people taking statins and patients who are on them should stop,” Prof. Harumi Okuyama from Nagoya City University in Nagoya, Japan, lead author of the 2015 review paper of statin trials, was quoted as saying in the UK newspaper The Daily Express. Peter Langsjoen, MD: ‘These drugs [statins] should never have been approved for use.’ “These drugs [statins] should never have been approved for use. “The long-term effects are devastating,” Peter Langsjoen, MD, a cardiologist from Texas and coauthor of this 2015 review paper, was quoted as saying in the UK newspaper The Daily Express. Dr. Malcolm Kendrick: ‘The harms [of statins] clearly outweigh any previously suggested benefits’ “This study demolishes the argument that these drugs should be prescribed to anyone, as the harms clearly outweigh any previously suggested benefits,” Dr. Malcolm Kendrick, author of The Great Cholesterol Con who has studied cardiovascular disease and statins for many years, was quoted as saying in the UK newspaper The Daily Express.

They work by blocking a substance your body needs to make cholesterol. Statins may also help your body reabsorb cholesterol that has built up in plaques on your artery walls, preventing further blockage in your blood vessels and heart attacks. Statins include well-known medications such as atorvastatin (Lipitor), simvastatin (Zocor), lovastatin (Mevacor), pravastatin (Pravachol), rosuvastatin (Crestor) and others. risk factors Before you're prescribed a statin, your cholesterol level is considered along with other risk factors for cardiovascular disease, including: Family history of high cholesterol or cardiovascular disease Inactive (sedentary) lifestyle High blood pressure Poor general health Having diabetes Overweight or obesity Smoking Lifestyle changes are essential for reducing your risk of heart disease, whether you take a statin or not. Lifestyle changes you should consider making include: Quitting smoking Eating a healthy diet that's low in fat, cholesterol and salt Exercising 30 minutes a day on most days of the week Managing stress The side effects of statins Although statins are well tolerated by most people, they do have side effects, some of which may go away as your body adjusts to the medication. http://nclexpreceptor.com/nclex-blog/ https://www.facebook.com/nclex.preceptor

Statins can CAUSE coronary heart disease! Prof. Harumi Okuyama & Peter Langsjoen MD

Hi, this is Larry Hobbs @ FatNews.com. http://fatnews.com/ https://twitter.com/fatnews https://twitter.com/fatnews Statins are NOT effective, but instead can cause hardening of the arteries, heart failure, diabetes “In summary, statins are not only ineffective in preventing CHD [coronary heart disease] events but instead are capable of increasing [coronary heart disease] and heart failure,” according to a 2015 review paper by Prof. Harumi Okuyama from Nagoya City University in Nagoya, Japan, Peter H. Langsjoen MD, a cardiologist from Texas, and others who reviewed more than 20 statin drug studies done after 2004. “Physicians who are involved in prescribing cholesterol-lowering medications cannot ignore the moral responsibility of ‘informed consent’. “Patients must be informed of all statin adverse effects, including the ability to cause [coronary heart disease] and heart failure, onset of diabetes mellitus, carcinogenicity, teratogenicity [drugs that may cause birth defects] and central and peripheral nervous disorders besides the well-known rhabdomyolysis [a breakdown of muscle tissue that releases a damaging protein into the blood which can damage the kidneys] and hepatic [liver] injury.” “Most of these adverse effects of statins become apparent after 6 or more years of statin therapy.” “Chronic administration could ultimately lead to these statin adverse effects as pharmaceutical and biochemical research has now demonstrated.” Prof. Harumi Okuyama: ‘I cannot find any evidence to support people taking statins and patients who are on them should stop’ “We have collected a wealth of information on cholesterol and statins from many published papers and find overwhelming evidence that these drugs accelerate hardening of the arteries and can cause, or worsen, heart failure. “I cannot find any evidence to support people taking statins and patients who are on them should stop,” Prof. Harumi Okuyama from Nagoya City University in Nagoya, Japan, lead author of the 2015 review paper of statin trials, was quoted as saying in the UK newspaper The Daily Express.

High Cholesterol Causes
 
01:39
More info @: http://ad.trwv.net/t.pl/89071/377594 What is cholesterol? Cholesterol is made by the liver, but also found in fatty foods. There are two types of cholesterol: HDL or "good" cholesterol (high-density lipoproteins) and LDL or "bad" cholesterol (low-density lipoproteins (or LDL). If LDL cholesterol is high it gets deposited on the walls of your arteries, forming a plaque that clogs your blood vessels and stops your blood flowing properly.

✔ Natural Home Remedies for High Cholesterol
 
04:28
Natural remedies for high cholesterol Natural treatments to lower cholesterol levels are used to improve general health. But research on such treatments is limited, when you compare them to that on conventional medical treatments. Very few natural products have been clinically proven to reduce cholesterol. However, many people have experienced some success with alternative treatments with natural products. Some cholesterol-lowering supplements and natural remedies might be helpful. But before you try any alternative treatments, you should check with your doctor to determine if they are safe for you. The ingredients in some natural treatments can interfere with certain medications. They can have harmful side effects too. Astragalus Astragalus is an herb used in Chinese medicine to support the immune system. It contains anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. This herb is believed to protect the body against various stresses. Studies suggest that astragalus may have some benefits for your heart. However, more research is needed to learn how astragalus may impact your cholesterol levels and overall heart health. Flaxseed Flaxseed is taken from the flax plant. Flaxseed and flaxseed oil contain high levels of alpha-linolenic acid. This is an omega-3 fatty acid that may help lower your risk of heart disease and it may help you lower your cholesterol. Fish with omega-3 fatty acids Omega-3 fatty acids can also be found in fish and fish oils. Salmon, tuna, lake trout, herring, and sardines, are really rich sources. Experts have long believed that omega-3 fatty acids found in fish help reduce the risk of dying from heart disease. Other nutrients in fish may help protect your heart and lower your cholesterol level. Eating one or two servings of fatty fish per week can lower your chances of dying from a heart attack. Garlic. Garlic has been used as a cooking ingredient and medicine for thousands and thousands of years. You can eat it raw or cooked. It is also available in supplement form, as a capsule or tablet. Research suggests that garlic can help lower your blood pressure and reduce your blood cholesterol levels. Some studies have found that taking garlic for one to three months helps lower blood cholesterol levels. Red yeast rice Red yeast rice is a Chinese medicine and cooking ingredient. It is made by culturing red rice with yeast. Some red yeast rice products contain quantities of monacolin K. This substance is identical to the active ingredient in the drug lovastatin. Red yeast rice products that contain this ingredient may help lower your blood cholesterol levels. You can obtain natural remedies without a prescription. Some people have found that natural remedies are helpful when used with their standard treatment plan. There is no hard evidence that alternative or herbal remedies alone can lower cholesterol. Most natural remedies are not regulated, and some side effects may be unknown. Diet and lifestyle changes You can also adopt healthy lifestyle habits to help manage your blood cholesterol levels. Here are some examples: Stop smoking. Lose excess weight. Exercise most days of the week. Eat heart-healthy foods, including foods rich in soluble fiber and omega-3 fatty acids. Eliminate trans fats from your diet. Drink alcohol in moderation. Take steps to reduce stress. Cholesterol is a kind of fat found in your blood. Your body makes all the cholesterol it needs. But you also get cholesterol from foods you eat. High cholesterol is one of the major factors for heart disease. It greatly increases your chance of developing heart disease and having a heart attack. If you have high cholesterol, your doctor can prescribe medications or lifestyle changes. You may also be able to use one or more of the natural ingredients mentioned above. Thank you for watching. Please give a thumbs up and subscribe and dont forget to leave a comment.

Drugs That May Cause Memory Loss
 
01:06
The AARP published an interesting article regarding drugs that may cause memory loss. Here is a quick summary. Read the full post. Here are 10 of the top offenders. 1. Antianxiety drugs Examples: Alprazolam (Xanax), chlordiazepoxide (Librium), clonazepam (Klonopin), diazepam (Valium), flurazepam (Dalmane), lorazepam (Ativan), midazolam (Versed), quazepam (Doral), temazepam (Restoril) and triazolam (Halcion). 2. Cholesterol-lowering drugs (Statins) Examples: Atorvastatin (Lipitor), fluvastatin (Lescol), lovastatin (Mevacor), pravastatin (Pravachol), rosuvastatin (Crestor) and simvastatin (Zocor). 3. Antiseizure drugs Examples: Acetazolamide (Diamox), carbamazepine (Tegretol), ezogabine (Potiga), gabapentin (Neurontin), lamotrigine (Lamictal), levetiracetam (Keppra), oxcarbazepine (Trileptal), pregabalin (Lyrica), rufinamide (Banzel), topiramate (Topamax), valproic acid (Depakote) and zonisamide (Zonegran). 4. Antidepressant drugs Examples: Amitriptyline (Elavil), clomipramine (Anafranil), desipramine (Norpramin), doxepin (Sinequan), imipramine (Tofranil), nortriptyline (Pamelor), protriptyline (Vivactil) and trimipramine (Surmontil). 5. Narcotic painkillers Examples: Fentanyl (Duragesic), hydrocodone (Norco, Vicodin), hydromorphone (Dilaudid, Exalgo), morphine (Astramorph, Avinza) and oxycodone (OxyContin, Percocet). These drugs come in many different forms, including tablets, solutions for injection, transdermal patches and suppositories. 6. Parkinson's drugs Examples: Apomorphine (Apokyn), pramipexole (Mirapex) and ropinirole (Requip). 7. Hypertension drugs Examples: Atenolol (Tenormin), carvedilol (Coreg), metoprolol (Lopressor, Toprol), propranolol (Inderal), sotalol (Betapace), timolol (Timoptic) and some other drugs whose chemical names end with "-olol." 8. Sleeping aid Examples: Eszopiclone (Lunesta), zaleplon (Sonata) and zolpidem (Ambien). 9. Incontinence drug Examples: Darifenacin (Enablex), oxybutynin (Ditropan XL, Gelnique, Oxytrol), solifenacin (Vesicare), tolterodine (Detrol) and trospium (Sanctura). 10. Antihistamines Examples: Brompheniramine (Dimetane), carbinoxamine (Clistin), chlorpheniramine (Chlor-Trimeton), clemastine (Tavist), diphenhydramine (Benadryl) and hydroxyzine (Vistaril). I deliberately kept this to the types and brand names so you can spot yours quickly. And when you do it might be worth a conversation with your physician about your medications. -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: "Media Compilation Bureau Friendly" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yohOce9qu6E -~-~~-~~~-~~-~-

Course materials at http://oregonstate.edu/instruct/bb451 Glycerolipid and Sphingolipid Metabolism III 1. SREBP (Steroid response element binding protein) is a protein that plays a role in controlling whether or not HMG-CoA reductase is made. I will use the name SREBP generically to refer to the protein and as SREBP-ER to refer to it in the endoplasmic reticulum and as SREBP-G to refer to it in the Golgi. I also define the three components of the SREBP as "R" -regulatory (binds to SCAP), "M" - membrane portion, and "D" - DNA binding portion. SRE refers to a region of DNA bound by the D portion of SREBP. 2. When cholesterol levels in the cell fall, the SREBP-ER complex moves to the Golgi Complexe. A serine protease in the Golgi cleaves SREB-G to release the MD regions These migrate in the membrane to a metalloprotease, which clips MD to free the D region from the M region. The D region then travels through the cytoplasm and enters the nucleus, where it binds to the promoter region in front of the HMG-CoA Reductase and other genes with an SRE.. This causes HMG-CoA Reductase to be synthesized and cholesterol synthesis can then begin. 3. Cholesterol in the body is either there as a result of 1) synthesis; 2) diet; or 3) storage/recycling. 4. In the digestive system, bile acids and mechanical agitation of the stomach help emulsify fats. 5. In the intestines, hydrolysis of fatty acids from fats by lipases (pancreatic lipase), yield soapy like substances that help emulsify lipids for transport across the intestinal wall. 6. After movement across the intestine, lipids are packaged in chylomicrons. They move through the lymph system into the capillaries where they get stuck. 7. Action of lipoprotein lipase in the capillaries removes some of the fat from the chylomicrons and they shrink in size and exit the capillaries and move to the liver. They are taken up there and released, when needed as VLDLs. These travel the blood system and get converted to IDLs and ultimately LDLs. Note that cholesterol ONLY gets into cells via receptor-mediated endocytosis of the LDL at the target cell. 8. The liver is involved in sensing the body's need for lipids via LDL receptors. If it senses lipids are needed, VLDLs are packaged by the liver and released these get degraded by lipases and other enzymes to IDLs and LDLs. If the liver LDL receptor cannot detect LDLs in the blood, it continues to release more lipids in lipoprotein complexes, thus elevating the LDL concentration in the blood. 9. Defects in liver LDL receptors, such as found in familial hypercholesterolemia (a genetic disease) are a leading cause of high blood cholesterol. Other factors to consider include dietary cholesterol, cholesterol synthesis rate, and efficiciency of recycling cholesterol. Statins are drugs that inhibit HMG-CoA Reductase and reduce cholesterol by inhibiting its synthesis. 10. LDLs are referred to as "bad" cholesterol, because they are associated with formation of atherosclerotic plaques. These may form as a result of free radical (reactive oxygen) species which oxidize unsaturated fatty acids in LDLs. The immune system may attack these and form the basis of an atherosclerotic plaque. 11. HDLs, by contrast, are referred to as "good cholesterol", because they are associated with reducing levels of cholesterol. HDLs are reduced in smokers, but are increased in response to exercise. Omega 3 or omega-4 fatty acids from fish oils appear, in some cases, to reduce serum cholesterol levels. 12. If a person has high cholesterol, the first approach is to see if levels can be brought down by dietary changes. If they cannot, then drugs are used to stop 1) endogenous synthesis and/or 2) recycling. 13. Endogenous synthesis drugs target HMG-CoA Reductase. These drugs are called Statins (for example, lovastatin) and they stop the pathway that leads to cholesterol.

http://www.Medigaplist.com ----------------- There are so many Medicare plans to choose from when dealing with Medicare part D. So much confusion when it comes to the donut hole in Medicare. The premium cost of all of these plans are different, the co pays are different, the mail order pharmacies, the drugs, the Lipitor generic, the simvastatin. It goes on and on, and the one general consensus is that Medicare Part D prescription drug plans are just darn confusing. Rocky mountain health plans in Colorado are easier to figure out than the drug plans for Part D. The first step is to get your Medicare A and B card. If you already have that taken care of and you have a Medicare supplement plan in place the battle is almost won. Maybe it is the annual enrollment period and you simply want to change your drug plan or switch from a Medicare advantage plan. Maybe you just are tired of running your drugs through the system only to find out the Medicare approved part D plans are all expensive. My advice is to get a broker to help you through this. Why is it that people always want to do things themselves? It doesn't cost you anything more to get a Medicare broker to walk you through this time period. If you want Medicare Part D info and you are tired of looking around then call us at Medigaplist. We can help. So many people have asked me what the best Medicare drug plan is and I always tell them it is different for everyone. The AARP drug plan from United Healthcare is the best Medicare drug plan in Colorado for certain people. Humana is the best Medicare Part D plan for someone else. It really depends on the drugs you take. If you take Lisinopril to treat high blood pressure aka hypertension, or you take another ACE inhibitor, the plan isn't going to be the samer Part D Medicare plan that someone taking Actos or Avandia. Omeone who is taking Valium or a Xanax obviously has a different condition than someone taking Altocor, lovastatin or Crestor. Would you take Aviane or a ethinyl estradiol/levonorgestrel for your back pain; I don't think so. oyu need to get a list of Medicare Part D drug plans and compare the premiums. You also want to compare the best Medigap plan F and see if you can save money on your supplemental Medigap plan. The bottom line is you want the best Medigap plan F or Plan G you can find if it's affordable, you want a great Medicare part D plan, you need to make sure you can handle the Medicare Part A and B premium, and you want a good dental plan from a company such as Delta Dental.
