Statin Drugs only add four days to your life

Statin Drugs only add four days to your life.  New research from the Journal of the American Medical Association calls the use of statin drugs into question.  These drugs, such as Lipitor, Crestor, Zocor and others, led to an increased incidence of type 2 diabetes.  Additionally, according to this research, the only added four days to one’s lifespan.

Statin Drugs only add four days to your life.  Statins are the most prescribed drug in the U.S. Sadly, they come with a host of serious side effects.  These side effects include muscle pain, headaches and nausea. Sadly, they also greatly increase the risk of developing type 2 diabetes. In fact JAMA concluded in the study that this research  could lead to a lower number of individuals recommended for statin drugs.  This even includes people with increased risk of cardiovascular disease.

Statins are a group of medicines that lower ‘bad’ cholesterol by causing the liver to make less.  Dr. Aseem Malhotra from the Frimley Health NHS Foundation Trust, said: ‘There appears to be no clear reduction in coronary heart disease mortality in western European countries from statins for primary [low-risk patients] and secondary prevention [high-risk patients].’  Dr. Malhotra was one of the study’s authors.  So why don’t statins help?  Actually, there is a simple answer.  According to research from around the globe, there is no link between cholesterol and heard disease.  If you need more evidence, look at either the Honolulu study or the Framingham Study.

Natural News actually reports that “Researchers in the NYU study said that heart attack survivors should focus on improving their health with diet and exercise instead of taking medications. They said that people over 65 who took statins were more likely to die than those who changed their diet.”

Digestion of Fats and Simple Carbs

As it turns out, your heart health depends on your ability to digest and use several key nutrients.  Of course they are fats and simple carbs.  The way your body digests, absorbs and uses them is crucial to your cardiovascular health.  Of course by age 40, your ability to process these foods declines by 70%.  This is where enzyme nutrition comes in.  While I don’t treat cardiovascular disease, I can support heart and blood vessel health.  I accomplish this by making sure your body can process carbs and fats the way it’s supposed to.  But I only determine this after objective scientific testing based on sound medical principals.

Are you concerned about your heart health?  Does your condition affect your quality of life? If so, you can contact us one of several ways to set up a consultation. You can reach us on the web, stop by our office in Redmond, WA, or call us at 425-868-0120. Then I will personally sit down with you and talk about your suffering and how it affects your life. I will even do some preliminary testing as well as Bio Impedance Analysis (BIA). In fact did you know that both NASA and Cancer Treatment Centers of America rely on BIA? These tests help me determine if you are a good candidate for care. If you’re not, we’ll make every effort to provide the proper referral.

High Blood Pressure

Hypertension and Vascular Health

High Blood Pressure
High Blood Pressure can be deadly

This episode of Dr. Andy’s Wellness Corner is about high blood pressure.  Additionally, Dr. Andy will go into the importance of vascular health and other risks from this common disease.  Of course, Dr. Andy starts by defining the disease.  And then your host covers its prevalence not only in the U.S. but in Washington state as well.  He also gets into what this common disease costs Americans annually as well its serious complications.  He also goes into risk groups, how it’s measured and common treatments.  Lastly he covers both the popular natural approaches to healthy vascular function and, of course, the enzyme nutrition approach.

High blood pressure is known as hypertension.  The most common way to measure it is using a cuff.  There are, however, several other ways to measure it.  Additionally, one high reading is not enough to diagnose a patient with hypertension or high blood pressure.  In this program, Dr. Andy will also reveal some startling new research showing how high blood pressure can lead to some pretty surprising complications.  There are of course some predictable complications as well.  Your host goes into both of them siting appropriate research along the way.

Then Dr. Andy goes into  common medications as well as their side effects.  He also goes common natural ways of supporting healthy vascular functions.  Lastly, of course he delves into the enzyme nutrition approach to support  properly working heart and vascular systems.

Low Cholesterol Shortens Life
Did You Know Low Cholesterol Shortens Life?

Low Cholesterol Shortens Life.  Over the past many years, there have been a number of studies proving the cholesterol myth is just that.  It is just a myth.  In fact these studies show there is no link between cholesterol and heart disease.  Among these studies are the Framingham Study as well as the Honolulu Study.  And, as I’ve previously stated, the Aboriginals have a high instance of heart disease and very low cholesterol levels while Switzerland has a low incidence of heart disease and relatively high cholesterol levels.  However, if you actually dive into the data behind the Honolulu study, you’ll find some startling figures.  Surprisingly, these statistics indicate that lower cholesterol may actually shorten your life span.

What’s most unfortunate is that the study concludes that lowering cholesterol does not affect your risk of heart disease.  While that is a great finding, one needs to look at the underlying data in the study to get to the real truth.  Surprisingly, if you look at that actual data, you find the conclusion is being somewhat politically correct.  Because the data actually shows a HIGHER MORTALITY RATE for subjects who had lower cholesterol levels.  As a matter of fact this includes those with lower LDL levels, which is the “BAD” cholesterol.  In fact several studies from medscape.com show that people who have lower LDL (“Bad Cholesterol”) levels had an increased risk of cancer.

Enzymes Boost Heart Health
Learn How Enzymes Boost Heart Health

Enzymes Boost Heart Health.  According to Nutrition Research, January 2009, specific enzymes supports healthy heart and cardiovascular  function.  In fact the study even showed that this enzyme even helps people who are at higher risk of cardio vascular disease (CVD).  In fact according to the research, this enzyme helps heart health by reducing several key clotting factors in the blood.   These factors are fibrinogen, factor VII and factor VIII.

Factor VII, formerly known as proconvertin, is one of the proteins that causes blood to clot in the coagulation cascade.  Meanwhile, factor VIII is an essential blood clotting protein.  Lastly, fibrinogen (formerly known as factor I) is a glycoprotein in vertebrates that helps in the formation of blood clots.  And while all of these chemicals are necessary; in fact we would bleed to death without them, they are problematic in abundance.

The Research and Our Approach

However, the exciting news is that the enzyme known as nattokinase shows much promise in reducing fibrinogen, Factor VII and Factor VIII.  Of course you would want to be careful not to take too much.  In fact, this why we use a scientific approach to supporting a healthy working body with enzyme nutrition.  Through scientific testing based on sound medical principals, Dr. Andy can identify the actual source(s) of stress in the body and help those organs work properly.  Therefore, this even includes both heart and cardiovascular function.
