Brief of “The Unbreakable Brain”
Is it possible to prevent dementia? Or reverse it? The answer is yes. While the brain may still hold some mysteries, there is a lot we do know about getting and keeping it healthy and reversing the damage that might already be there.
Your brain is the interface between your mind and spirit in this world, but it is also a physical organ that, like all organs, has nutritional needs and chemical stresses. Just like keeping a body physically fit requires exercise and nutritious food, a brain needs to be fed and exercised to stay strong or get stronger.
Cholesterol is not the problem — Bad Fats and Sugars are. Most major heart attacks occur in people with normal levels of cholesterol.
1. Get Off Statin Drugs
Statin drugs lower your body’s ability to make cholesterol… but are notorious for causing memory loss and impaired brain function.
That’s because fully 25% of the cholesterol in your body is used by your brain, where it protects nerve cells and speeds the signals between neurons that control thought movement, and sensation.
Do you think protecting neural cells and speeding the signals between them is important? It sure is… if you like walking, talking, thinking and remembering.
2. STUDY CONFIRMS BRAIN-HARMING ACTIVITY
A University of California at San Diego study surveyed patients between the ages of 34 and 86, to see if memory and cognitive function problems showed up after taking statin drugs.
The results were shocking — fully 75% of participants showed negative changes.
But when they stopped the statin therapy, their cognitive function improved in about two and half weeks. Some patients even had their Alzheimer’s diagnosis reversed!
Some of the harmful drug names are Lipitor, Crestor, Zocor, Mevator, and Pravachol.
Doctors may insist you take them, but keep in mind that cholesterol has never been proven to be the cause of heart disease.
It can take two to five years for a statin to pay off preventively, so a healthy 80-year-old expected to live that long might well opt to take one or to continue taking one.
“It’s a well known, proven therapy that might prevent a devastating illness,” Doctors say. By trying different statins at different dosages, Doctors say, patients usually can find a comfortable regimen.
In a huge study of 136,905 heart attack patients at 541 hospitals across the nation, 75% were found to have normal LDL cholesterol levels and were not considered at risk for heart disease.
In fact, research continues to show that most major heart attacks occur in people with normal levels of cholesterol.
So, the link between heart disease and cholesterol is weak at best, and our education — or brainwashing — on this subject has more to do with drug company profits than sound science.
3. “BAD CHOLESTEROL” A MARKETING PLOY
The drug companies figured out how to lower cholesterol, and then they just needed to make cholesterol a bogeyman to sell these drugs by the boatload. And the U.S. government was happy to oblige on that.
But think about it — your body is a miracle of harmonious biochemistry.
And your body makes cholesterol. So, why would it make something that poisons you?
It wouldn’t. And it doesn’t. There is no such thing as “bad cholesterol.” That’s drug company marketing.
The truth is cholesterol is essential to the health of your cell membranes… to your digestion… to making Vitamin D and many hormones. And it’s especially important to the health of your brain cells.
So important, in fact, that you’d die rather quickly without it.
4. LOW CHOLESTEROL LINKED TO EARLY DEATH
Several studies show that low cholesterol is associated with a higher rate of mortality in the elderly.
In a study of 4,309 Medicare patients, those with total cholesterol levels under 175 were found to die at twice the rate of those with levels over 226.
Still, you may find it hard to believe that cholesterol is not somehow involved in heart disease. Well, it is, but only indirectly.
You see, the consumption of bad fats and sugars will change the quality of your LDL particles, making them smaller and denser. And that’s when they can embed in the linings of your arteries, triggering the plaque-making process.
But cholesterol is not the problem — bad fats and sugars are. And statin drugs have no bearing on that.
So, consider that the statin pills you’re taking may be what’s giving you brain fog and memory loss, not to mention loss of libido, fatigue, muscle pain, and a higher risk of dying prematurely.
Talk to your doctor about getting off the statin drugs, and in their place using a heart-healthy diet – along with regular exercise – to keep your cholesterol particles healthy.
Just ahead, I’ll tell you which foods have the brain-and heart-harming fats and sugars. And you can also learn a lot about this subject in my book, The Unbreakable Brain.
