If you or
someone you know is taking a statin medication for cholesterol, you might want to read Dr. Al Sears' article below on how these medications may be adversely
affecting your health, and what your options are. According to the
Weston A. Price Foundation, many prescription medications on the
market today, especially statins, have severe side effects and often deplete our bodies of some
necessary nutrients. Their
in-depth article discusses common side effects of some of the
most popular drugs on the market today. You may be shocked with some of these findings.
Dr. Sears discusses how to safely raise your HDL and lower your LDL levels
without medication - much of this can be done by adding heart-healthy foods to your diet. To

First Thing Is, Stop Taking
By: Al Sears, MD
Dear Health-Conscious Reader,
Of the four patients I saw yesterday four were
on statin drugs.
All four new patients were taking a cholesterol-lowering drug. I've been
saying for 15 years how terrible that is, and over that time it's gotten worse every year.
One of my new patients told me, "First my doctor put me on Lipitor and I got these aches in my
legs so bad I complained until he took me off. The only way I got him to take me off was telling him
I wouldn't take it anymore. So then he put me on Crestor.
"Since then, I'm worse. Now I
have pains in my legs, my back hurts...even my neck is stiff. Every day I wake up and I can hardly
more. So I told my doctor and he said, 'You can't stop. Not only that but we want your LDL
cholesterol down to below 70 and yours is 130 so you're going to have to take more of the
That's when he decided enough was enough, and he came to me.
him, "The first thing I want you to do is stop taking Crestor."
"Well, I can start
"No, don't taper it" I said. "Just stop it today. Stop it immediately."
He got so excited he had to get up and leave the room.
He went out and got his
wife and they hugged each other!
Then she came and hugged me and they had a little
celebration right there in my office. They were so happy they were elated because a doctor had told
them he could finally stop the drug.
The cardiologist had done such browbeating on
him...because most cardiologists are still recommending "statin drugs for everyone." It's like
they've been locked in a cave.
My patient had told his cardiologist, "I read this stuff
from this doctor who says you raise HDL with exercise - he's got a program where you can strengthen
your heart - and you can do it with diet and supplements...

How to Feed Your "Forgotten Organ" for Better
By: Kelley Herring, Healing
There is an organ that is as important to your
health as your heart, liver and lungs. But you've probably never heard of it.
This "forgotten organ" plays a wide number of
vital roles in your body. It synthesizes vitamins. It helps to regulate your hormones. It disarms
carcinogens. It breaks down toxins. It even helps to kill invading pathogens.
And that's not nearly all. It also impacts the
way your body extracts calories from food. It affects your mood. And it plays a vital role in
training your immune system to prevent everything from colds and flu... to
The bad news is that most of us are assaulting
this organ on a daily basis. We damage it with the foods we eat, the products we use, and sometimes
with the medicines we take.
So, what is this mysterious organ? It's
What You Can't See Can Help
Your microflora is also known as your microbiome.
It is the collection of bacteria, viruses and fungi that live in your gut, on your skin, in your
lungs, as well as in your mouth, your ears, and even your eyes.
According to Dr. Curtis Huttenhower, who leads
the microbial research lab at Harvard, the average adult has around 100 trillion microbial cells
that live in and on their body. This is more than ten times the number of human cells in the body!
But that's not all. These cells have about 100
times as many genes as you do. "So not only are we outnumbered," says Huttenhower. "We're
outgunned." The bottom line is that the genetic material in your body is only about 1 percent human.
The remaining 99 percent is microbial!
And these microbes are not just "hitching a
ride." You have a symbiotic relationship with them. You give them a place to live. And they help to
keep you alive.

Fetus Suffers When
Mother Lacks Vitamin C
Maternal vitamin C deficiency during pregnancy can have serious
consequences for the fetal brain. And once brain damage has occurred, it cannot be reversed by
vitamin C supplements after birth. This is shown through new research at the University of
Copenhagen just published in the scientific journal PLOS ONE.
Population studies show that between 10-20 per cent of all adults in
the developed world suffer from vitamin C deficiency. Therefore, pregnant women should think twice
about omitting the daily vitamin pill.
"Even marginal vitamin C deficiency in the mother stunts the
fetal hippocampus, the important memory centre, by 10-15 per cent, preventing the brain from optimal
development," says Professor Jens Lykkesfeldt. He heads the group of scientists that reached this
conclusion by studying pregnant guinea pigs and their pups. Just like humans, guinea pigs cannot
produce vitamin C themselves, which is why they were chosen as the model.
"We used to think that the mother could protect the baby. Ordinarily
there is a selective transport from mother to fetus of the substances the baby needs during
pregnancy. However, it now appears that the transport is not sufficient in the case of vitamin C
deficiency. Therefore it is extremely important to draw attention to this problem, which potentially
can have serious consequences for the children affected," says Jens Lykkesfeldt.
Too late when damage is done
The new results sharpen the focus on the mother's lifestyle and
nutritional status during pregnancy. The new study has also shown that the damage done to the fetal
brain cannot be repaired, even if the baby is given vitamin C after birth. When the vitamin C
deficient guinea pig pups were born, scientists divided them into two groups and gave one group
vitamin C supplements. However, when the pups were two months old, which corresponds to teenage in
humans, there was still no improvement in the group that had been given supplements. The scientists
are now working to find out how early in the pregnancy vitamin C deficiency influences the
development of fetal guinea pigs. Preliminary results show that the impact is already made early in
the pregnancy, as the fetuses were examined in the second and third trimesters. Scientists hope in
the long term to be able to use population studies to illuminate the problem in humans.
There are some groups that may be particularly vulnerable of vitamin C
deficiency: "People with low economic status who eat poorly - and perhaps also smoke - often suffer
from vitamin C deficiency. Comparatively speaking, their children risk being born with a poorly
developed memory potential. These children may encounter learning problems, and seen in a societal
context, history repeats itself because these children find it more difficult to escape the
environment into which they are born," says Jens Lykkesfeldt. He emphasizes that if pregnant women
eat a varied diet, do not smoke, and for instance take a multi-vitamin tablet daily during
pregnancy, there is no reason to fear vitamin C deficiency. "Because it takes so little to avoid
vitamin C deficiency, it is my hope that both politicians and the authorities will become aware that
this can be a potential problem," concludes Jens Lykkesfeldt.

Burn 10 lbs of Fat Fast During the Holidays by Getting
When I stopped getting stronger my fat loss and improvements in definition
also stopped. After ten years of training, workouts are just not fun anymore. When I
lose interest in training the diet goes badly for me so this is terrible timing with the holidays
here. What can I do to burn off ten pounds of fat between now and the New Year without
spending more than 45 minutes in the gym per session?
You are exactly correct, even though
gaining strength is not your primary goal, you must gradually increase the challenge the muscles
face from week to week in order to burn more body fat! At your experience level, the training
routines must change every six weeks to prevent staleness. The holiday season is full of bad
food choices and you must have a plan to avoid looking like Santa! The KISS Rapid Fat
Loss Plan is the ticket to long term low body fat levels!KISS Rapid Fat
Check out the highly effective, yet simple to follow, video
explanation of the KISS Rapid Fat LOSS Meal Plan: Part 1
. KISS involves simple to prepare meals full of organic
protein, vegetables, good dietary fat sources and well-timed carbohydrate intake for rapid fat loss
and high energy! Eating "clean" is not enough to earn a low body fat level; there must be a
strategy in place to force the body into burning fat fast through proper manipulation of
macronutrients in addition to consuming the correct food sources.
I have reviewed
your training records and spotted many problems, but it was very clear that there has not been much
variety in your training techniques over the years. We need to pack more work into a
short period of time to increase fat burning hormones.
Strategically manipulating the
loading and speed of reps will also stimulate the nervous system to be much more productive,
allowing for you to get stronger each week!Quality over Quantity!
Strip load training is perfect for you as it drives body fat loss fast, while fitting into
45 minutes or less, a few times per week...
