What is High Cholesterol According to Mainstream Beliefs?
Hyperlipidemia is a medical term that means your blood has too many lipids (fats) in it, i.e., cholesterol and triglycerides. In hypercholesterolemia, there’s too much LDL (bad) cholesterol in your blood. This increases fatty deposits in arteries and the risk of blockages.
The main way the mainstream medical addresses this situation is with meds which we believe can cause even more damage leading to other even more serious health issues.
How is Cholesterol Used Inside Our Body?
As a vital part of the body's chemistry, cholesterol is used to produce the steroid hormones required for normal development and functioning. These include the sex hormones estrogen and progesterone in women and testosterone in men. These hormones trigger development of the physical traits characteristic of adult women and men; they also play a role in reproduction as well as in digestion.
Other steroid hormones produced from cholesterol include cortisol, which is involved in regulating blood-sugar levels and defending the body against infection, and aldosterone, which is important for retaining salt and water in the body. The body can even use cholesterol to make a significant amount of vitamin D, the vitamin responsible for strong bones and teeth, when the skin is exposed to sunlight.
Cholesterol is not bad but why is the body overproducing it then ? Let's continue the learning...
What is High Cholesterol According to Our beliefs?
How is Cholesterol Created Inside Your Body?
Cholesterol is produced in your liver from the "food bricks" called nutritional principles. All lipids, proteins and glucides are transformed here - after a very complex chemical (actually biochemically) reactions.
Are There Foods That Contain Cholesterol?
Yes, The Foods you eat can add to the Cholesterol inside your body.
How is Cholesterol Used in Our Bodies?
The liver creates Cholesterol for a number of body functions:
Estrogen and Progesterone in women
Testosterone in men
Cortisol used in regulating blood sugars
Aldosterone used in regulating salt and water
And much more...
How Cholesterol works when everything is NOT working:
We have included a diagram (below) of how Cholesterol gets into the blood stream. The real question is why do a lot of people have high Cholesterol? Our body is a complex chemistry set that is constantly trying balance acids and alkalines inside our body. The blood PH needs to remain around 7.2 to 7.45 PH(base/alkaline) and when our body due to diet(eating) and our Lymphatic system(diet waste) becomes too acidic one of the buffering systems we have is Cholesterol. Cholesterol (fats) buffer acids and are used in this area to Protect the body from acids which burn !
There are a couple things going on when Cholesterol is up:
1) The liver will go into overtime production of Cholesterol to buffer(neutralize) acids. This is an easy one to address. A diet change is required and we offer very specific diet protocols which will rapidly cause the cholesterol to return to normal.
2) The liver could be damaged from an acidic lymphatic system which has been burning this gland and causing the liver to malfunction. This requires a diet change and herbals to clean/detox the lymphatic system, liver and other organs so they can return to normal. Our diets protocols and herbals are designed to help your body regain health.
Here is a high-level process of High Cholesterol:
Liver is over producing Cholesterol
Due to diet to buffer/reduce acids and/or
The liver has been damaged by an Acidic Lymphatic System that is burning the Liver causing it to malfunction
