Stopping Statins pt1 (Lipitor, Simvastatin...): There are many reasons to stop statins. Is it SAFE?
 
15:47
ford brewer md mph Info@PrevMedHeartRisk.com There are many reasons to stop statins, ranging from side effects to cost to fear to the need to switch to a more effective statin. Two studies are mentioned: one saying that it's safe to stop statins, and another says it's not. Although these studies, like all studies, have problems. But I think they both reflect biologic medical realities. The study showing safety was on stable patients. The study showing danger in stopping statins was on patients post strokes. Plaque instability is systemic; there is no such thing as one vulnerable plaque. The VULNERABLE PLAQUE THEORY is rapidly dying. Therefore the patients in the post-stroke study selected for patients with an arterial tree full on unstable plaque. The study showing safety selected for patients with stable plaques. Plaque instability appears to be a cyclical phenomenon, with cycles taking many months. So I would love to see a 2 year follow-up on the study showing safety in stopping plaques. I bet it would show regression to the mean. About Dr. Brewer - 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.

If you are one of the 65 million who need to take Statins like Lipitor, Crestor, Livalo, Simvastatin, Atorvastatin, etc... Then you must watch this video. Statins, contrary to popular belief are a revolutionary class of medications which have afforded us privilege to extend our lives literally by combatting the inflammatory and degrading effects of cholesterol. But, like many and most things in life, Statins aren't perfect...They by mechanism of action deplete you of certain nutrients, vitamins and enzymes which can cause mild to serious adverse effects. The most common side effects noticed are muscle pain,muscle spasms, nerve pain, peripheral neuropathies, joint pain, liver damage, mental confusion and memory loss. So what are you supposed to do? It's simple.... Just take the Vitamins, nutrients and enzymes that you are being robbed of at the same time. Simple right! well not so simple because you have to know what to take and at what dose to take it and it has to be absorbed by your body! Statinzyme has a virtual 100% absorption rate due to it's enteric coating. Most supplement formulas try to trick you with advertisements of high absorption, but that's usually around 3-30% especially when it comes to CoQ10. Statinzyme is a patented and award winning formula! The creator is a pharmacist who was awarded the 2014 NASPA Excellence in Innovation award in New York State. One pharmacist wins it per state and Dr. Paul Faerstein (the creator) won it in the State of NY.

Statinzyme contains 9 ingredients at the right dosages that will not only prevent and relieve these unwanted side effects, but it will also lower the risks of getting a heart attack or a stroke even more than you simply taking your medication alone. Oh, and I forgot to mention the best part...besides being available in an ultra absorbing elegant and easy to swallow enteric coated soft gel, Statinzyme gives you an amazing value! Dr. Paul created this formula to save his patients money! and the burden of swallowing a fist full of pills! He put everything into one easy to swallow enteric coated serving. Just 2 capsules and if you were to buy this formula separately you would spend easily over $100.00. Statinzyme can be purchased for under $35 and we do give volume discounts at www.Statinzyme.com, but they are not on our site...you will have to call us at 1800-568-4826. Enjoy the video! This video contains two testimonies from pharmacy owners and they are 100% unpaid! They simply describe they're experience with Statinzyme and the impact it has made on their patients! Enjoy!!!

Two Apples a Day More Effective At Reducing Heart Disease Than Statin Medications
 
07:15
http://preventdisease.com/news/12/073012_Two-Apples-a-Day-More-Effective-At-Reducing-Heart-Disease-Than-Statin-Medications.shtml Two Apples a Day More Effective At Reducing Heart Disease Than Statin Medications More evidence continues to surface supporting the superior effectiveness of nature's foods over medication in preventing disease. New research shows that just two apples a day could help protect women against heart disease lowering blood fat levels by almost 25 percent, a claim unattainable by cardiovascular prescription medications. Scientists found apples significantly lowered blood fat levels in postmenopausal women, the group most at risk of heart attacks and strokes. Studies in the past have found that flavonoids act as antioxidants -- enzymes that target free radicals that can damage DNA. Flavonoids are commonly found in chocolate, green tea and other fruits and vegetables. Snacking on the fruit every day for six months slashed levels of so-called "bad cholesterol" by almost a quarter, a figure that all statin drugs combined cannot attain. Why Cholesterol Drugs Are Ineffective Two-thirds of people taking widely prescribed cholesterol-lowering medicines do not get as much benefit as drug company statements suggest they should, primarily due to cholesterol drugs working better in labs than they do in people. Moreover, study after study has shown that cholesterol-lowering drugs called statins (Lipitor, Mevecor, Crestor, etc.) do not reduce the risk of death and heart disease in people with moderately high cholesterol and high blood pressure. Despite their ineffectiveness, a recent report from the American Heart Association predicted a tripling of direct medical costs of cardiovascular disease from $272.5 billion to $818.1 billion between 2010 and 2030 (Circulation, March 2011, Vol. 123, pp. 933-944). Statin medications are the number-one-selling drugs in the world. They work by interfering with the liver function and reducing the production of LDL. But statins are a questionable innovation on at least a couple of accounts. Firstly they are not without side-effects: they can, for example, lead to the breakdown of major muscular material, which can ultimately overwhelm the kidneys and even cause acute renal failure. Statins also appear to reduce the body's natural levels of the vitamin-like, cellular protection agent known as Co-enzyme Q10. This benzoquinone plays an important role in cellular energy release, particularly in hard worked areas like the lungs, liver and heart. CoQ10 (as it is sometimes called) has also been shown to protect the brain against neurological degeneration. But perhaps most interestingly, with respect to cholesterol, CoQ10 also acts as an antioxidant, particularly active in protecting the system against LDL oxidation and the potential problems associated with this as described above. So whilst Statins might provide a reduction in LDL per se, they might also be causing more problems in the long-term. Naturally, as with many modern drugs, they generally have to be taken for the long-term by anyone who has been prescribed them. What is particularly disturbing about Statins is, perhaps, the fact that they may be seen as a 'quick fix' for unhealthily high LDL, and consequently cholesterol levels throughout the body. However, the average reduction for LDL cholesterol for all statin drugs combined is less than 18% making the plant extract blend a feasible, affordable and an superior option to Statins for patients with elevated LDL cholesterol levels. Considering the lack of side effects from red yeast rice and artichoke leaf extract blends, the option is gaining deserved attention in the natural health community.

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!

Dr. Suzanne Steinbaum is a cardiologist, author and spokesperson. She’s devoted her career to treating heart disease through early detection, education and prevention. For more great tips from Dr. Steinbaum, check out her other videos and Bottom Line blog, At The Heart Of It All. In this video, Suzanne Steinbaum, MD, author of Dr. Suzanne Steinbaum’s Heart Book: Every Woman’s Guide to a Heart Healthy Life and Bottom Line’s “At the Heart of It All” blog, discusses dietary changes that patients can make so that they won’t have to depend on statin drugs to keep their heart healthy. People underestimate the healing powers of food. Adopting the Mediterranean diet (consisting primarily of plant-based foods and healthy fats) can reduce your risk for heart disease up to 70% and also reduce the dosages of your statin drugs or possibly eliminate the need for them altogether. Dr. Steinbaum urges people to carefully choose what they eat because food really can be medicine.

Are you one of the millions of people who has taken the cholesterol-lowering drug called Lipitor? If so, you'll want to watch this video about the increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes. For more information, visit our website at http://www.lawmed.com/. And don't forget to watch our other videos at http://www.youtube.com/hensonfuerst/. (Principal office of Henson & Fuerst, PA: 2501 Blue Ridge Road, Raleigh, NC 27607) Do you—or have you ever taken—Lipitor? If so, you’ll want to watch this video to learn about drug side effects that could threaten your life. Hello, I’m David Henson, a partner with HensonFuerst Attorneys. Lipitor (atorvastatin calcium) is prescribed to patients for cholesterol management. Pfizer, Inc., the drug’s manufacturer, markets Lipitor as a medication that can lower the risk of heart attack, stroke, certain types of heart surgery, and chest pains in patients who have, or are at risk for, heart disease. But because the drug can also cause increased blood glucose levels, patients who take Lipitor may face increased risks of developing Type 2 diabetes. We’ve seen this in women who have taken Lipitor for at least 30 days, especially within the last 6 months of use. Lipitor is part of a class of cholesterol-lowering drugs known as statins. In 2012, the FDA released a report citing serious health risks for people using statins, including Lipitor. Those risks include development of diabetes, and worsening glycemic control. As a result, statin drug packaging was updated to include information about these risks. Before then, Lipitor’s label failed to warn patients of any potential relation between changes in blood sugar levels and taking Lipitor. Despite scientific data suggesting that Lipitor was linked to the development of Type 2 diabetes, the drug was marketed as safe and effective. If you are a woman who took Lipitor and developed Type 2 diabetes, contact HensonFuerst Attorneys today to discuss your legal options at 1-800-4-LAWMED.

💉 This Is Why Low Cholesterol Is BAD For Your Health

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/HealthyCholesterol Or you can watch this video with the worst foods for high cholesterol: http://drsam.co/yt/5WorstFoods References 1. Psychosomatic Medicine 2000;62 2. http://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/preview/mmwrhtml/mm5635a2.htm 3. http://content.onlinejacc.org/cgi/content/short/50/5/409 4. http://www.alz.org/we_can_help_cholesterol.asp 5. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1884568/ 6. http://www.webmd.com/heart-disease/guide/homocysteine-risk 7. http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2016/04/20/cholesterol-myths.aspx ======================================= 💉 Why Low Cholesterol Is BAD For Your Health ======================================= The other day I got an email from Josephine and she asked: “Dr. Sam - I got off the cholesterol lowering drugs (I felt HORRIBLE on them!!!) and I’ve been using your CholesLo now for 6 months. My Cholesterol levels went from 227 down to 191. This is a good start, thank you. How do I get it below 150? Should I increase the dosage?” So the problem here is that many people, including doctors … try to really lower their cholesterol as much as possible. For example, I have a friend who takes 80 mgs of Lipitor daily, a cholesterol lowering statin. His cholesterol is 121 and his doctor is happy with this. however, this is crazy and it explains why my friend is depressed, has lost muscle, has memory problems and has no sex drive. Cholesterol is GOOD for you. It has many health benefits. In fact, “low” cholesterol, which I think is anything less than 150… is linked to: Memory loss and Alzheimer’s disease 4 Depression and an increase in suicide rates 1,2 Increase your risk for cancer and Parkinson’s disease 3 “Low drive” - physical, sexual and emotional. 5 So here’s what you want: Healthy cholesterol levels -- between 150 to 220. I know everyone tries to get it below 200, but it’s okay to be a little “higher”. Ideal range is about 170-190. Optimal HDL/LDL ratios -- What you should care more about is your “good’ HDL and “bad” LDL levels. These are known as lipoproteins -- fats combined with proteins. And your goal is to have higher HDL and lower “small density” LDL particles. Lower Triglycerides -- Simply stated, this is “fat in the blood”. A little bit of “fat” is normal for energy, but too much and things start to “clog” up in your arteries. Lower Homocysteine -- This is an amino acid in your blood and it’s a major risk factor to heart disease.6 Most doctors, especially in the US, still don’t test for this. But for sure you want this lower. Healthy Liver Function -- most people don’t know, but almost 80% of your cholesterol is formed in your liver, NOT from the foods you eat.7 So you want to make sure your liver is clean, strong and healthy. So, total cholesterol is just ONE factor for having “healthy lipid” levels. And again, you don’t want it too low, which is why drugs just make this situation much worse. They are too powerful and just shut down everything. Additionally, the other 4 factors I mentioned, when combined with healthy cholesterol levels, DRAMATICALLY reduce your risk for a heart attack or stroke -- and THAT’S the secret! And this is exactly what I did for my own parents back in 1999. You can get all the details, what we learned, the REAL cause of high cholesterol and the best and easiest solutions. Just click the link below in the description area and watch the short video, “copy the formula” and lower your own cholesterol, naturally - without drugs or crazy diets. ========================================­ Thank you for watching.

Natural Ways To Lower Cholesterol Without Medications
 
04:06
Cholesterol is made in your liver and has many important functions. For example, it helps keep the walls of your cells flexible and is needed to make several hormones. However, like anything in the body, too much cholesterol in the wrong places creates problems. Like fat, cholesterol does not dissolve in water. Instead, its transport in the body depends on molecules called lipoproteins, which carry cholesterol, fat and fat-soluble vitamins in the blood. Different kinds of lipoproteins have different effects on health. For example, high levels of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) result in cholesterol deposits in blood vessel walls, which can lead to clogged arteries, strokes, heart attacks and kidney failure. In contrast, high-density lipoprotein (HDL) helps carry cholesterol away from vessel walls and helps prevent these diseases. Here are 7 natural ways to increase the “good” HDL cholesterol and lower the “bad” LDL cholesterol. 1.Focus on Monounsaturated Fats Monounsaturated fats may reduce the oxidation of lipoproteins, which contributes to clogged-arteries. Monounsaturated fats are healthy because they decrease harmful LDL cholesterol, increase good HDL cholesterol and reduce harmful oxidation. few great sources of monounsaturated fats are: olive-oil, canola-oil, tree nuts and avocados. 2.Eat Soluble Fiber Soluble fiber is a group of different compounds in plants that dissolve in water and that humans can’t digest. However, the beneficial bacteria that live in your intestines can digest soluble-fiber. In fact, they require it for their own nutrition. These good-bacteria, also called probiotics, reduce both harmful kinds of lipoproteins, LDL and VLDL. 3.Limit your intake of foods full of saturated fats and trans fats. Foods with a lot of saturated fat include butter, fatty flesh like red-meat, full-fat and low-fat dairy products, palm-oil, and coconut-oil. If you see partially hydrogenated fat in the Ingredient List of a food label, that food has trans fats. 4.Exercise Exercise is a win-win for heart health. Not only does it improve physical fitness and help combat obesity, but it also reduces harmful LDL and increases beneficial HDL. In one study, twelve weeks of combined aerobic and resistance exercise reduced the especially harmful oxidized LDL in 20 overweight women. While even low-intensity exercise like walking increases HDL, making your exercise longer and more intense increases the benefit. 5.Lose Weight Dieting influences the way your body absorbs and produces cholesterol. Weight loss reduces total cholesterol, in part by decreasing the creation of new cholesterol in the liver. Weight loss has had different, though generally beneficial, effects on HDL and LDL in different studies. 6.Choose protein-rich plant foods Choose protein-rich plant foods such as legumes or beans, nuts, and seeds over meat. Common legumes include lentils, peas, and beans, such as pinto beans, red beans, white beans, and soybeans. They’re full of nutritional riches and are a very healthy, protein-packed alternative to meat. Legumes help lower total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, blood sugar, and insulin levels, and may even lower cancer risk. 7.Take plant sterol supplements. Sterols are naturally occurring substances found in plants. A daily intake of 1 to 2 grams of plant sterols has been shown to lower LDL cholesterol levels. Your best choice is supplements, such as CholestOff, because they do not have the calories, sugar, trans fats, and salt of many foods enriched with plant sterols.

High Cholesterol Medications
 
02:47
Hi! I'm robo-Suzie and today I'll talk to you about High Cholesterol Medications. Also don't forget to subscribe for more tips in the future! But back to our topic. If you are suffering from high cholesterol then there are a number of different types of medication that your doctor can prescribe you and they will have both their advantages and disadvantages. Some of them are designed to make changes to the way that your body handles cholesterol while others try and reduce it and as a general rule, the high cholesterol treatment that you receive will be alongside lifestyle changes such as eating a healthier diet and exercising more. For the younger generation, this lifestyle change will be attempted before medication is given. Statins are the most popular and effective medicines given to those that suffer from high cholesterol and the different types of medication that are available with this contained within it is rather a substantial number. There have been a lot of clinical studies and evidence to back the positive effects that Statins have on lower cholesterol and they are among the most used ingredients in cholesterol medications. They have also been proved to reduce the risks of heart attacks and also death. There are many brand names of high cholesterol medications and this can make learning about them rather complicated. The ones that are most used to reduce the amount of cholesterol that your liver produces are Lipitor, Mecavor and Pravachol but they have their own generic names as well and may also be produced and manufactured by different companies therefore having different brand names. There are also combinations of high cholesterol medications that contain statins and these also reduce the amount of cholesterol that the liver is producing but can also change how cholesterol is absorbed into the body, lower the blood pressure and also raise the good and lower the bad parts of the cholesterol. These brand named products may include Vytorin, Caduet and Advicor. Other types of high cholesterol medications may be used in conjunction with statins to change the way that cholesterol is removed from the body and also lower the amounts of cholesterol that is being absorbed into the body. As a general rule, your doctor or other healthcare professional will try and change your diet and exercise regimes before he or she will prescribe you with high cholesterol medications and there are a few exceptions to the rule, and these exceptions are those that have coronary heat disease, strokes and other heart problems. However when taking high cholesterol medications it is important to remember that your lifestyle will still need to change, especially if you are overweight to prevent further health risks and to ensure that the medications are working more efficiently. That's it! Thank you. Please subscribe, comment and like this video if it was helpful! See you soon!

Effects of a Ketogenic Diet on Cholesterol (Keto Cholesterol - Phinney/Moore/Perlmutter)
 
06:01
So sorry for the long delay between this and the previous video! But.. we are back and addressing the much talked about issue of Keto diet effecting Cholesterol levels! So lets talk about cholesterol... The idea that the increased consumption of fat in a ketogenic diet could result in health troubles, in particular cardio vascular troubles, is misguided on a few levels. Let me start by clarifying a common misconception. Serum cholesterol, or the amount of cholesterol measured in the blood, is not directly correlated in any way to dietary intake of cholesterol, and in fact the body creates much larger amounts of cholesterol than you can ingest nutritionally. After years of nutritional guidelines recommending that dietary cholesterol be avoided as much as possible, we are seeing the shift in understanding that not only is it unnecessary to closely regulate dietary cholesterol levels, but cholesterol plays a crucial role in keeping you healthy. The "American Journal of Clinical Nutrition" has recently reported, "At present there is no clear relation of saturated fatty acid intake to these outcomes [of obesity, cardiovascular disease, and incidence of cancer and osteoporosis]. In fact the role of cholesterol in the body includes but is not limited to, aiding in the production of key hormones, helping the liver create bile which aids in digestion, and providing a protective barrier for each and every cell in our body. Even Low Density Lipoproteins or LDL, which most people consider to be "bad" cholesterol play a crucial role in delivering cholesterol to cells throughout the body. The real issues come from oxidative stress and inflammation affecting preexisting levels of cholesterol by oxidizing LDL, which studies have shown correlate directly to excess dietary intake of carbohydrates and elevated blood sugar, rather than nutritional intake of fats and dietary cholesterol. The main issue presented by the oxidation of LDL is that the immune system can mistake it for bacteria. The attempt to fight it off causes inflammation inside arterial walls, promoting atherosclerosis, heart disease, and other complications many people mistakingly attribute to "high cholesterol". Making it much more important to lower the rate at which LDL is oxidized, not the level of LDL and cholesterol present in the blood. As far as the direct effect of a ketogenic diet on cholesterol levels, its been discovered that ketones act as epigenetic modulators, effectively increasing gene expression which can improve cell function and protect the body from oxidative stress. This means that the production of ketones allows the natural genes that code for necessary functions to express themselves and better run the code for these functions, rather than be suppressed by the resulting factors of constant carbohydrate intake. One of the first genes effected in a ketogenic metabolism is HMGSC2, which is a gene that regulates hydroxy-methylglutaryl coenzyme A synthase, or HMG CoA Synthase, which in turn promotes mitochondria to more easily and readily use ketones as fuel and also regulates levels of serum cholesterol. In a nutshell research is now showing that low carb ketogenic diets: - Raise serum high density lipoproteins or HDL - Improve the ratio of HDL to LDL - And increase the size of LDL All of which are proven to be beneficial to cardio vascular and overall health. Lastly in an attempt to get ahead of anyone claiming that a ketogenic diet effected their cholesterol levels negatively, here is a quick explanation as to why that may be the case and how it is only momentary. Stephen Phinney, a leading researcher in the field of low carb nutrition, discovered an interesting phenomenon when monitoring the cholesterol levels of individuals using a ketogenic diet for weight loss. Along with the often talked about serum cholesterol, we store cholesterol along with triglycerides in fat cells. When we adapt to ketosis and begin to use fat for fuel we mobilize the triglycerides and cholesterol in fat cells, but are only able to metabolize the triglycerides. This is why in extreme weigh loss cases, primarily weight loss over 60lbs, cholesterol levels and in particular LDL levels can become elevated. Although only for a short period, quickly these cholesterol levels drop to lower than ever after being cleared out by the process of being picked up by the liver, made into bile and cleared through the gull bladder. Once again creating a change in cholesterol levels that correspond with health improvements.

Grapefruit Juice Has Serious Side Effects With Certain Medications
 
01:04
In a surprising report, grapefruit juice has serious side effects with medication. Grapefruit juice can cause dangerous and even deadly side effects when it is combined with certain drugs. Scientists from the University of Western Ontario found that the number of drugs that interact with grapefruits was found be much higher than they previously thought. 17 different drugs were believed to have negative interactions with grapefruits, but now that number has gone up to 43. Grapefruits have certain chemicals that change how your body absorbs the drugs before they enter the bloodstream and take effect. Some of the potential side effects from a combination of grapefruit and any of the drugs on the list include heart problems, kidney failure, blood clots, muscle breakdown and difficulty breathing. Some common medications such as Lipitor have shown serious interactions when they are mixed with grapefruits or grapefruit juice. Professor Paul Doering of the University of Florida Pharmacy Department said: "People know that drugs react with drugs, but fewer are aware of drug-food interactions. Health professionals need to learn as much as they can about this. Undetected there are very serious adverse effects."

How to use pressed garlic to REVERSE eyesight loss without glasses or surgery (plus 2 more foods)
 
03:58
How to use pressed garlic to REVERSE eyesight loss without glasses or surgery (plus 2 more foods) Everything goes away with time, including your eyesight. Macular degeneration affects many people, and is most common in Caucasian women over the age of 50. Although one of the main causes of eyesight-loss is due to aging, there are many lifestyle choices that you can make that either reduce or increase your chance of suffering from macular degeneration. One of these lifestyle changes that you can easily make is adding certain foods to your diet. Here are some of the foods that can help prevent macular degeneration. Garlic Cholesterol Reduction A recent study conducted by the Harvard Medical School has suggested that lowering levels of cholesterol may help reduce the risk of developing age related macular degeneration. This is due to the fact that, in age-related macular degeneration, fat deposits build-up under the retina, which causes blurring or blindness to occur in the centre of your field of vision. According to the study, 23 patients with age-related macular degeneration were given high doses of Lipitor, a drug that reduces cholesterol levels. In 10 of those patients, the fat deposits under their retina disappeared and they experienced improvement in vision clarity. This is when garlic comes into play. According to the Annals of Internal Medicine, eating even half a clove of garlic per day can significantly reduce total cholesterol levels. This is due to the fact that the compounds that are present in garlic prevent cholesterol synthesis Blood Pressure Reduction Blood pressure plays a big role in terms of age-related macular degeneration. This is due to the fact that having high blood pressure restricts blood flow, something which severely affects the activity of the retina. The retina requires a high rate of oxygen consumption, so if you reduce the blood supply that delivers this oxygen than you reduce the chance of maintaining healthy eyesight. According to the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews, two randomized controlled studies show that garlic significantly helped reduce mean supine systolic blood pressure. In conclusion, garlic is an overall effective remedy to help prevent age-related macular degeneration. Try crushing or pressing your garlic, as this action releases more of the beneficial compounds found in garlic. It is cheap and easily available and can be consumed in many different ways. It is also a natural product, which means that it will not cause any of the side effects that commonly accompany store-bought drugs. If you want to ensure that you have good eyesight for the rest of the life, start increasing your garlic intake today. Salmon Omega-3 Fatty Acids Salmon is a great source of all three different types of omega-3 fatty acids. The reason this matters is that, according to the National Eye Institute, a byproduct of the fatty acids found in fish oil is incredibly beneficial for eye health. Researchers found that macular diseases caused by abnormal blood vessel growth can be prevented by a byproduct found in docosahexaenoic acid, one of the omega-3 fatty acids. Researchers believe that it may prevent the condition by inhibiting abnormal growth of the blood vessels that cause these eye problems. Carrots Beta Carotene Yep, the old adage about carrots benefiting your eye health is true. This is because carrots are a rich source of both beta carotene. Inside the body, beta carotene converts into vitamin A (retinol). Vitamin A prevents is necessary to prevent a variety of eye diseases, as many people who are vitamin A deficient suffer from night blindness, spotty vision, dryness of the eyes and ulcers. https://youtu.be/Yx56InuLDpU

They don't visit the doctor more than other developed countries: http://international.commonwealthfund.org/stats/annual_physician_visits/ But the price we pay for that visit - for a procedure - it costs way more: http://static1.squarespace.com/static/518a3cfee4b0a77d03a62c98/t/57d3ca9529687f1a257e9e26/1473497751062/2015+Comparative+Price+Report+09.09.16.pdf The price you pay for the same procedure, at the same hospital, may vary enormously depending on what kind of health insurance you have in the US. That's because of bargaining power. Government programs, like Medicare and Medicaid, can ask for a lower price from health service providers because they have the numbers: the hospital has to comply or else risk losing the business of millions of Americans. There are dozens of private health insurance providers in the United States and they each need to bargain for prices with hospitals and doctors. The numbers of people private insurances represent are much less than the government programs. That means a higher price when you go to the doctor or fill a prescription. Uninsured individuals have the least bargaining power. Without any insurance, you will pay the highest price.

The Vulnerable Plaque Theory: Can We Predict When a Plaque Will Blow?
 
10:08
ford brewer md mph PrevMedHeartRisk.com Despite knowing when people have atherosclerosis, we cannot predict when an individual is at risk for immediate heart attack or stroke event. Logically, that's surprising when you consider that vascular imaging can clearly show us when plaques are "hot" (they have a liquid necrotic core), and the plaque cap is getting thin. There are companies that have been started to do just this. InfraReDx is one such company. It used an infrared technology to characterize these vulnerable. Dr James Mullner was the CEO. But he is no more. It doesn't look like things are going well with InfraReDx. Why? The other side of the debate seems to be winning. Dr. Steven Nissen, chair of cardiology at Cleveland Clinic has been a major proponent of the side that says "it's a systemic issue. You can't target just one vulnerable plaque. That's a myth." I agree with them. About Dr. Brewer - 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. From there, he made a career of practicing and managing preventive medicine and primary care clinics. His later role in this area was Chief Medical Officer for Premise, which has over 500 primary care/ prevention clinics. He was also the Chief Medical Officer for MDLIVE, the second largest telemedicine company. More recently, he founded PrevMed, a heart attack, stroke, and diabetes prevention clinic. At PrevMed, we focus on heart attack and stroke and Type 2 diabetes prevention by reducing or eliminating risk through attentive care and state-of-the-art genetic testing, imaging, labs and telemedicine options. We serve patients who have already experienced an event as well as those have not developed a diagnosis or event. Our team of senior clinicians includes internationally recognized leaders in the research and treatment of cardiovascular disease, preventive medicine and wellness. We also provide preventive medicine by telemedicine technology to over 30 states. Contact Dr. Brewer at info@prevmedheartrisk.com or visit http://prevmedheartrisk.com.

Taking Statins? Don't Stop There
 
01:25
Taking Statins? Don't Stop There Jonathan Sackner Bernstein, MD, talks about why choosing the right foods is important when you are taking a statin. You'd be surprised how frequently I'll have a patient come into me who I've given a statin to and their bad cholesterol, the LDL has dropped from 140 to 95 and they hesitantly start to ask the question that I can see coming, where they're basically asking me essentially, is this pill my steak insurance? Does that mean I can start eating steak again, that I can start having bacon and eggs for breakfast? That would not be a responsible approach. If you're making the personal investment, and I don't just mean money wise, I mean in terms of commitment to adhere to the medicine, to take the medicine and improve that blood level of cholesterol and reduce your risk, it just doesn't make sense to try to eat your way around that advantage that you've gotten.

Statins are gateway drugs for Big Pharma Take one and you’ll nee

Today's Alternative News Channel - Statins are gateway drugs for Big Pharma Take one and you’ll need four or five more prescriptions for the side effects One out of every three American adults take statins, and if you think that sounds like good news for statin manufacturers, you’re missing the bigger picture. All of Big Pharma benefits when people take statins. In fact, statins can really be thought of as gateway drugs. After all, they have so many side effects that you will likely end up taking several other medications after you start statins just to deal with them. What can happen to you if you take these dangerous drugs? They suppress your body’s immune system, rendering it less able to fight off infections. They also inhibit production of coenzyme Q10, which helps to regulate your immune and nervous system and maintain a healthy heart and blood pressure. There’s also a higher risk of neurological diseases when you take statins, with many patients reporting forgetfulness, confusion and memory loss. But don’t worry – whatever happens to you, Big Pharma has a solution for that, too!
