Heart Disease. What do we really know about it?
Cardiovascular disease is the #1 cause of death in America. We have long tried to blame this on cholesterol. Yet the cholesterol medications that nearly every patient is on don’t seem to be doing much to remove this as the top cause of death. Does the benefit of statin medications really have to do with cholesterol? It may be because statins also reduce inflammation, as well as deplete the body of other necessary nutrients. Some good with some bad! Looking at more than just cholesterol labs can give you a lot of information about independent risk factors for heart disease. Why is this still the number one cause of death? What are we overlooking by narrowing down treatment to cholesterol lowering? How can you effectively lower your risk of heart disease naturally?
