New Life Chiropractic – Does High Cholesterol Increase Heart Attack Risks?

We got to look at a couple on these
first. Now, one of the biggest ones out there is cholesterol. Now, everybody has heard about cholesterol, can we agree on that? Everybody. I mean, you can’t watch a commercial on TV without seeing at least one medication commercial in there talking about cholesterol somehow
and how it is bad for you. You probably get it checked on a regular basis when you go
in for your physical, there are screenings for it all over the place. So, it’s impossible
to not have heard of it in some places. So, we want to look at a couple of different things that’s true and that’s false about cholesterol itself. Number one, that’s a main main truth
that you need to understand. It’s not really cholesterol that causes heart disease, okay? It’s the oxidation of that cholesterol that starts to cause a problem which you’re going to learn about here tonight. And, there’s actually more people that have heart attacks with normal cholesterol than those who have high cholesterol because it’s not the clogging of your arteries that causes heart attacks and there’s a higher death rate with low cholesterol than high. So, if we’re just doing lowering cholesterol, are we really affecting heart
disease or preventing heart attack? It even says in their own commercial, “We’ll not prevent heart attack and stroke.” It doesn’t. And, I want to go through some studies with you tonight that really breaks that down and shows you exactly why and these statin drugs here lower cholesterol but they don’t actually affect heart attack or stroke. In fact, cholesterol is really important in your body. It’s what creates a lot of healing. It’s what makes
up a lot of neurological tissues. It’s what controls some of your main hormones. So, if you don’t have cholesterol, you can actually be creating a worse problem. So, this is a
really important one to understand. So, I want to make this as easy as possible for
you by explaining what is cholesterol? So, really what it is, it’s a substance that’s
created from your liver, it’s created by your own body that goes in and it fills up little
areas as repair. Basically, you think of it as your little repair man. It goes in, it
repairs it, it repairs it, it repairs it and patches it up. That’s what it does and it’s made up
of two different compounds, the LDLs and the HDLs. Anybody heard of that before? Yes, yes exactly. HDL is good. LDL is bad. And so, why is that? You look at these types of things. It’s what actually manufactures bile and vitamin D, estrogen, testosterone, cortisone and a host of vital other hormones. So, if this cortisone is necessary, this cholesterol is necessary to do that and we lower it or remove it or block it, what happens to all those other areas? Now, HDL is known as the good cholesterol because it helps clean out the arteries and the LDL we know is the plaque, thick type arteries that kind of starts to clog up and blocks your heart from working, and that’s what causes the heart attack, right? Well, if you look at that and you look at a lot of the truths behind that and typically, what is the conventional treatment if you have high cholesterol? Yes, you’re on medications, right? And, if you don’t see a blocked artery, what’s usually the typical treatment for that? Yes, you can maybe have a heart stent, right or a heart surgery or more drugs on there. And so, this is the study that I was looking at that breaks down hundreds of other studies over 50 years concluding that bypass surgery does nothing more than relieve symptoms from chest pain and does not prevent future heart attacks. And, why is that? Your body is really, really smart, that’s why. If you block off an artery, it’s not just going to shut down. It makes collateral vessels that go all around it. [Inaudible]
