Is There Such a Thing as Bad Cholesterol

Cholesterol is a type of fat manufactured in the liver. Your liver produces about 80% of the cholesterol you need. Cholesterol  is a fat and protein so it is often known as lipo-protein. There is low dense lipoprotein called LDL and there is high dense lipoprotein known as HDL. Both LDL and HDL have very important functions in our body. LDL transports manufactured cholesterol fats from the liver to the tissues. HDL transports cholesterol fats from the tissues to the liver. The body adjusts the ratio of HDL to LDL constantly according to the demands of the body.

Cholesterol is crucial for the synthesis of all of our endocrine hormones, including those of the adrenals, pituitary, estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone

Cholesterol is necessary to make Vitamin D from the sunshine on our skin.

Cholesterol helps immunity when there is a deficiency of Vitamin C

Cholesterol is needed to assimilate the fat-soluble vitamins A, E, D, K

Cholesterol  is part of the structure of our cell membranes and regulates what moves into the cell or moves out of the cell.

Cholesterol lines the myelin sheath that insulates and protects the nerves. 75 % of this insulation is made of cholesterol

It makes up much of the brain and is used to make neurotransmitters.

Cholesterol is used to make bile, which aids fat digestion.

Dr Ravnskov quote:  LDL, the molecule that transport cholesterol in the blood, partake in the immune system by adhering to and inactivating all kinds of microorganisms and their toxic products

Furthermore, children born with very high cholesterol are protected against infection. But if inborn high cholesterol protects against infections, inborn low cholesterol should have the opposite effect. Indeed, this seems to be true.

Children with the Smith-Lemli-Opitz syndrome have very low cholesterol because the enzyme that is necessary for the last step in the body’s synthesis of cholesterol does not function properly. Most children with this syndrome are either stillborn or they die early because of serious malformations of the brain.

Dr Ravnskov states that people with high cholesterol live the longest. There have been many studies done regarding lowering the cholesterol levels with statin drugs but here is the catch.

Dr. Ravnskov explains how statin trials can be manipulated. His quote “In most statin trials the outcome has been misleading because the authors have used relative risk reduction rather than absolute risk reduction. What´s the difference, you may ask? If, for instance, 2 of 100 participants in the control group of a trial suffer from heart disease but only 1 of 100 in the treatment group suffer from heart disease, the absolute risk reduction is only one per cent. However, the relative risk reduction is 50 per cent, because one is 50 per cent of two.

In other words the variable known as heart disease is a major variable in the statin drug results. I do not trust such trials as I find that they are easily manipulated especially if there is a drug company anxious to get a particular statin drug into the market. They fund the research study with the intention of getting the results to prove their statin drugs have some beneficial effects.

This is what I discovered about statin drugs. If we understand that our brain is fat in other words cholesterol  and that our cells are all fatty cholesterol and the myelin sheath that covers our nerves is cholesterol and if we know that statin drugs strip the cholesterol then it is obvious that statin drugs can bind the fats from the brain to cause a lesion or the statin drugs can strip the fats from the nerves. Does it not stand that statin drugs can be the cause of depression, dementia. Alzheimers, memory loss, or MS or Parkinson’s Disease? I think of the many elderly people who are suffering with memory loss and I wonder how many of them are taking statin drugs stripping away the good cholesterol from their brains.

According to Dr. Ravnskov “The commonest side effect is muscular damage. According to the drug companies it occurs in less than 0.01 per cent, but muscular damage has only been recorded if the blood level of creatine, a molecule that reflects muscular damage, becomes ten times higher than normal. Independent researchers have reported that muscular symptoms occur in more than 20%, and microscopic examinations of the muscles of statin-treated patients with muscular symptoms and with normal creatine have shown muscular damage that disappeared together with the muscular symptoms when the patients stopped treatment. Independent researchers have also documented that statin treatment may cause heart failurediabetescataracthearing lossimpotencymemory losscognitive impairmentsdepressionsuicidal ideationParkinson´s disease, and cancer.

Are the trial directors honest? For some years, many researchers have questioned the results from statin trials because they have been denied access to the primary data. In 2004–2005, health authorities in Europe and the United States introduced New Clinical Trial Regulations which specified that all trial data had to be made public. Since 2005, no statin trial has been successful.” Dr Ravnskov

I worked with a client once diagnosed with MS. He was told there was a lesion in his brain and his left arm and left leg were not working properly and he had hearing loss. I found out that he had been taking a statin drug for 8 years. He took my TAFYH course, he stopped taking the statin drugs and within 3 months the use of his arm and leg returned and the hearing returned.

High cholesterol does not cause atherosclerosis.

High cholesterol does not cause heart disease.

Cholesterol-lowering does not prevent heart disease.

Cholesterol is our best friend!

Now that we understand the critical role that cholesterol plays in our bodies we start to see that there is no such thing as a bad cholesterol.

Dr. Axe and Dr Cordain: Healthy Cholesterol Foods

Here are a few of the top healthy cholesterol foods that you may want to consider stocking up on:

  • Olive Oil: Loaded with heart-healthy unsaturated fats, extra-virgin olive oil has been shown to drop bad LDL cholesterol levels to enhance heart health.
  • Vegetables: Vegetables are high in vitamins, minerals and fiber to support heart health, yet low in calories. Not surprisingly, studies have found that eating more vegetables is linked to healthy cholesterol levels in both men and women.
  • Nuts: Nuts especially walnuts are rich in fiber and good fats making them an excellent dietary addition if you’re looking for healthy cholesterol.
  • Seeds: Nutritious seed varieties like flaxseeds have been shown to reduce both total and LDL cholesterol levels to keep your heart healthy.
  • Salmon: Fatty fish like salmon are packed with beneficial omega-3 fatty acids, which can help build good  cholesterol levels and relieve inflammation to enhance heart health.
  • Garlic: Well-known for its wealth of health-promoting properties, research shows that garlic could even benefit cholesterol levels as well. According to one review of 39 studies, consuming garlic regularly for at least two months can lower cholesterol levels to reduce the risk of heart disease.
  • Sweet Potatoes: This tasty tuber contains several health-promoting proteins and compounds that have been shown to decrease cholesterol in animal models.
  • Green Tea: Rich in antioxidants and catechins, green tea is one of the healthiest beverages that you can add to your routine. Studies show that drinking green tea can decrease levels of total and LDL cholesterol. Studies have also shown that drinking yerba mate tea can naturally improve serum lipid levels, thereby lowering cholesterol levels.
  • Avocados: Avocados are high in fiber, potassium and healthy fats, all of which can aid in keeping cholesterol under control. Not only have avocados been shown to increase levels of good HDL cholesterol, but they can also reduce total and bad LDL cholesterol as well.
  • Grass Fed Red Meat; Dr. Cordain quotes some amazing researched studies to show that grass fed red meat was substantially higher in protein and in omega 3 fatty acids which make the cells pliable so oxygen can move into the cells and toxins move out of the cells.
  • Eggs; They are fat and protein. What a good way to start the day.
  • Turmeric: Thanks to the presence of a powerful compound called curcumin, turmeric has been shown to reduce toxic levels and bring cholesterol in the blood to a healthy state.


Turmeric- Curcumin

Natures Sunshine Turmeric has 61 clinical trials to evidence its powerful properties and beneficial effects on pain, inflammation, heart disease, Alzheimer’s, cancer, arthritis, herpes, ulcers, eye and liver health. It has been shown to be anti-inflammatory, anti viral, antithrombotic, anti mutagenic, antioxidant, antihistaminic.

The anti-inflammatory component in Turmeric Curcumin is equivalent to 32 capsules of turmeric which you can purchase in any store.What do some of the studies say:

It stops blood clot formation and keeps blood flowing freely

It reduces risk of heart disease and stroke by 78%

Studies show that with fish oil it inhibits plaque formation where beta blockers were not necessary

Studies show that it heals the brain after strokes.

It slows brain aging and prevents plaque buildup linked to Alzheimer’s.

Nature’s Sunshine Zambroza is a combination of 14 of the most recognized healthful fruits and extracts gathered from around the world. Zambroza’s ingredients are rich in bioflavonoids, polyphenols and antioxidants. Zambroza has been independently tested by Brunswick Laboratories to deliver a high ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) value. Among Zambroza’s key ingredients is mangosteen, a fruit found in eastern tropical countries, such as Thailand. Mangosteen fruit and its pericarp (peel) contain the greatest known supply of highly-researched, polyphenolic compounds called xanthones. Other ingredients of note are açai berry, pomegranate, blueberry, and wolfberry (goji berry).


Did you know? Antioxidants are at the centre of much attention from the scientific community. Nutritionists and government health agencies have recommended individuals eat plenty of high-antioxidant fruits and vegetables, which have a protective effect against disease and free radical damage.
