The Truth About Cholesterol and Heart Health

by Brian Bartholomew D.C.

The truth about cholesterol is that it is neither good nor bad. Cholesterol is a building block of many parts of your brain cells, your nerve cells and important in the function of every cell in your body. HDL, LDL and VLDL are forms of cholesterol each with their own specific and important function. Your HDL, LDL and total cholesterol are not the most indicative numbers regarding heart disease risk.

80% of cholesterol is made by the body. Only 20% of cholesterol is effected by the foods you eat.

Oxidized cholesterol is the problematic form of cholesterol.

Oxidized cholesterol is created when we ingest sugars, sweets, carbs, breads, pastas, cookies which inflame the body. The inflammation from the sugars/processed carbs make the cholesterol oxidized or sticky. Inflammation also damages the linings of our arteries and many other parts of our body. Sticky, oxidized cholesterol molecules stick to the walls of the arteries hardening throughout to body and brain creating all kinds of health issues.

Cholesterol drugs have been shown to increase diabetes up to 71% as well as causing nasty effects on your reproductive system, your mind and memory, your muscles and digestive system. Yet, cholesterol drugs have not been proven to reduce deaths from heart disease. Isn’t it time you and your loved ones looked for the cause of heart issues?

We must be conscious of the causes of heart disease and ill health. Real causes like sugary carbs, stress and nerve interference are all addressable with great chiropractic care and a clean lifestyle. It is imperative that we start to look at the root causes of conditions and not just go to the M.D. and take drugs to cover up the symptoms. There is always a reason why our cells, organs, glands, body parts are functioning poorly. Doesn’t it make sense to find the cause, to build healthier cells and to make the necessary changes while we still can?

When is the best time to get your nervous system checked by a corrective care chiropractor? What about your children? How long would you want the nerves going to their heart to be functioning at 100%? Chiropractic adjustments help to balance out the nerves the control the heart the sympathetic and parasympathetic nerves so the cells can function optimally. Chiropractic adjustments have been shown to help many individuals with high blood pressure caused by nerve interference. Chiropractic adjustments have also been shown to help balance your immune system lowering many of the factors that cause inflammatory damage.
