If you want proof about cholesterol read "The Cholesterol Myth". There is nothing wrong with a cholesterol count at 250. As a matter of FACT, none of the studies have been done with women and there ARE studies that show women NEED high cholesterol. There are also studies that show higher incidents of stroke with low cholesterol. Lipitor is damaging to the liver. You must have monthly testing done to check liver enzymers while on Lipitor. So, what does this show?
Medications as a rule either hide symptoms or stop bacterial processing. They do not heal. The body heals itself. The objective is to put it in a milieu in which it can. These are FACTS. Ask any doctor this question, if you put it to him directly he will agree.
It is logical that for the body to heal it needs proper nutrition and support through what nature had provided. Substances that artificially alter test results are a temporary measure that do not address the root cause, and hence cannot heal.
