Doctors increasingly prescribe "cholesterol lowering" drugs that patients will take every day for the rest of their lives. But a daily pill only addresses a small part of the cholesterol problem. In this book, Dr. Richard Furman shows you how to understand what your cholesterol numbers mean, how best to change levels of both the "lethal" LDL cholesterol and the "hero" HDL cholesterol, and how to adjust your lifestyle in order to stay off of expensive medications that don't address the whole problem (and often have negative health-impacting side effects).

Heart disease is the #1 killer. However, traditional heart disease protocols--with their emphasis on lowering cholesterol--have it all wrong. Emerging science is showing that cholesterol levels are a poor predictor of heart disease and that standard prescriptions for lowering it, such as ineffective low-fat/high-carb diets and serious, side-effect-causing statin drugs, obscure the real causes of heart disease. Even doctors at leading institutions have been misled for years based on creative reporting of research results from pharmaceutical companies intent on supporting the $31-billion-a-year cholesterol-lowering drug industry. The Great Cholesterol Myth reveals the real culprits of heart disease, including: - Inflammation - Fibrinogen - Triglycerides - Homocysteine - Belly fat - Triglyceride to HCL ratios - High glycemic levels Bestselling health authors Jonny Bowden, Ph.D., and Stephen Sinatra, M.D. give readers a 4-part strategy based on the latest studies and clinical findings for effectively preventing, managing, and reversing heart disease, focusing on diet, exercise, supplements, and stress and anger management.

Cholesterol is a soft, waxy substance found among the lipids (fats) in the bloodstream and in all your body's cells. It is transported to and from the cells by special carriers called lipoproteins. This book focuses on the two main types of lipoproteins- low-density lipoprotein (LDL) and high-density lipoprotein (HDL). LDL is the major cholesterol carrier in the blood. If too much LDL cholesterol circulates in the blood, it can cause atherosclerosis and/or clotting. HDL is known as "good cholesterol" because a high HDL level seems to protect against a heart attack. About one-third to one-fourth of blood cholesterol is carried by HDL. This book focuses on ways to reduce LDL-cholesterol levels, and therefore reduce the risk of serious health problems. Other factors that affect cholesterol levels, such as cigarette smoking and diabetes, are looked at as well. Different treatments, such as pharmacological therapies for high or low cholesterol levels are also examined.

Heart disease is the Number 1 global cause of death accounting for 17 million deaths per year. Almost 1 in 3 American adults have high cholesterol which is widely recognized as a risk factor for heart disease and is a modifiable cardiovascular risk factor. Dyslipidemia is the medical term for the elevation of lipids (e.g., triglycerides, cholesterol, and fat phospholipids in the blood) and is a major factor in cardiovascular disease. The standard medical treatment for dyslipidemia is lipid-lowering therapy. Typical drugs prescribed for treatment are referred to as statins and have side effects that are an issue for many people. LDL-C is the primary target for cholesterol lowering therapy as it is believed to be the major cause of atherosclerosis which is plaque buildup inside your arteries. Naturally derived dietary supplements have been utilized as an alternative therapy to lower blood levels of total cholesterol (TC), improve the balance between low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C;

Home remedies remain an appealing alternative to costly doctor visits—they're effective, inexpensive, and ideal for everyday illnesses and injuries that don't require hands-on medical care. When brand-name product guru Joey Green tackles a subject like home remedies, readers can be found reaching into their closets, cupboards, and pantries for their favorite products to cure what ails them. From relieving a migraine with Dole Pineapple Chunks, treating stinky feet with Clearasil, and soothing an insect bite with Colgate Toothpaste, Joey Green's Magic Health Remedies is packed with reliable, user-friendly cures for everything from acne and calluses to morning sickness and toothaches—121 conditions in all. Joey divulges that many products have special, never-before-revealed qualities not found on the label and, with a little ingenuity, can be used to treat minor health issues and conditions. There's compelling evidence for experimenting with off-label uses—like when hay fever strikes, a little McCormick Ground Turmeric in a glass of water brings relief in 15 minutes; the bioflavonoids in the spice are antioxidants that suppress histamine production. Who knew? Well, Joey knows and now he's bringing fast relief (and lots of fun) to health care at home!

Vegetables in your diet are the key to health and long life! If you don't do anything else, just consume more vegetables for quick health benefits. High blood cholesterol can affect anyone. It's a serious condition that increases the risk for heart disease, the number one killer of Americans-women and men. The higher your blood cholesterol level, the greater your risk. Fortunately, if you have high blood cholesterol, there are steps you can take to lower it and protect your health. This booklet will show you how to take action by following the "TLC Program" for reducing high blood cholesterol. TLC stands for Therapeutic Lifestyle Changes, a three-part program that uses diet, physical activity, and weight management. Sometimes, drug treatment also is needed to lower blood cholesterol enough. But even then, the TLC Program should be followed. The booklet has four main sections: It explains why cholesterol matters and helps you find your heart disease risk; describes the TLC Program; talks about a condition called the metabolic syndrome that can also be treated with TLC; and offers advice on how to make heart healthy lifestyle changes. Within the sections you'll find tips on such topics as how to: communicate better with your doctor and other health care professionals, read food labels, make and stick with lifestyle changes, plan heart healthy menus for the whole family, and make heart healthy choices when you eat out. Anyone can develop high blood cholesterol-everyone can take steps to lower it. Why Cholesterol Matters Cholesterol is a waxy, fat-like substance found in the walls of cells in all parts of the body, from the nervous system to the liver to the heart. The body uses cholesterol to make hormones, bile acids, vitamin D, and other substances. Two main kinds of lipoproteins carry cholesterol in the blood: Low density lipoprotein, or LDL, which also is called the "bad" Your Guide to Lowering Your Cholesterol With Therapeutic Lifestyle Changes cholesterol because it carries cholesterol to tissues, including the arteries. Most of the cholesterol in the blood is the LDL form. The higher the level of LDL cholesterol in the blood, the greater your risk for heart disease. High density lipoprotein, or HDL, which also is called the "good" cholesterol because it takes cholesterol from tissues to the liver, which removes it from the body. A low level of HDL cholesterol increases your risk for heart disease. If there is too much cholesterol in the blood, some of the excess can become trapped in artery walls. Over time, this builds up and is called plaque. The plaque can narrow vessels and make them less flexible, a condition called atherosclerosis or "hardening of the arteries." This process can happen to blood vessels anywhere in the body, including those of the heart, which are called the coronary arteries. If the coronary arteries become partly blocked by plaque, then the blood may not be able to bring enough oxygen and nutrients to the heart muscle. This can cause chest pain, or angina. Because high blood cholesterol affects the coronary arteries, it is a major risk factor for heart disease. Risk factors are causes and conditions that increase your chance of developing a disease. Heart Disease Risk Factors Risk factors are conditions or behaviors that increase your chance of developing a disease. For heart disease, there are two types of risk factors-those you can't change and those you can. Fortunately, most of the heart disease risk factors can be changed. Risk factors you can't change .Age-45 or older for men; 55 or older for women .Family history of early heart disease-father or brother diagnosed before age 55, or mother or sister diagnosed before age 65 Risk factors you can change .Smoking .High blood pressure .High blood cholesterol .Overweight/obesity .Physical inactivity .Diabetes This book is a B&W copy of the government agency publication.
